This was the area our hotel was in and it was quite lovely. We loved just walking through the neighborhood and stopping of coffee or champagne. Nice area and I would recommend a hotel in this area!

This part of Paris has lots of shops and small Parisian boutiques. There are hidden streets every where which offer the best shops and restaurants. Lots of restaurants here as well, which cater to all tastes and wallets.

This area of Paris is great for some typically Parisian shopping, along with some of the more expensive branded stores. Our favourite activity was however to enjoy a carafe of wine and people watch.

The most interesting activities in Paris for us include walking around, sitting in a cafe, window shopping and observing the world. This is the place for all of these activities! Terrific area that we visited daily.

In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic
and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is
dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops,
ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants.
Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine
art school and small museums hide in unassuming
squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the
oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented
