Vibrant colour, family antiques and atmosphere are here thanks to Laurent’s flair for interiors (he’s a lighting designer) and his love of meeting people. He’s also a walking encyclopaedia on Paris.
After patisserie, homemade jam and excellent coffee, explore Paris using Laurent’s specially-designed map: the main sights, places to eat, museums and markets on one side; three neighbourhood walks on the other. Return to discuss your day over a glass of wine and canapés in the library/living room.
You’ll feel like a local staying in this residential neighbourhood but it’s very central: Gare du Nord is only a ten-minute walk away; the department stores on Boulevard Haussmann are 15 minutes and the Louvre is 30 minutes.
