City Breaks

Le Marais

Le Marais is one of the oldest ares of Paris full of winding backstreets and beautifully old buildings. If you ever tire of the the seemingly perfect avenues in Paris I would recommend taking respite in the imperfect cobbled streets of le Marais. It’s also a nieghbourhood full of hidden gems which I thought I’d share with you all here, although admittedly some of them aren’t that hidden anymore. Here is just a little taste of what this area has to offer: Hotel de Sully for stunning architecture, National Archives for peace and quiet, Breizh Café for crepes, les Fées Patissières for mini French patisseries, Place des Vosges for Victor Hugo’s house, Diptype for heavenly scented candles, la Favorite for French coffee, l’éclair de Génie for multi-coloured eclairs, Carnavalet museum for history and manicured gardens, le Mary Céleste for oysters and cocktails, Meert for vanilla waffles, Yvon Lambert for art and books… Truthfully this list is never-ending but I hope the above suggestions help you enjoy the best of this charming neighbourhood.

Hello! I am visiting Paris soon and I am so excited seeing your pretty blog! I am sure that someone has asked this question to you before, but what kind of camera do you use? If you use your phone camera, which App do you use for editing? Sorry for the lame questions and thank you so much for sharing!!

Hello there! Lucky you I hope you have the most wonderful time in my favourite city. No problem at all I am more than happy to answer any questions – I use the 5D MKii with various lenses and for my Instagram I use VSCO to edit my iPhone photos – I hope this helps x
