Pierre Hermé is a worldwide famous pastry chef. He truly embodies the tradition of Alsatian bakery and confectionery. He started his career at 14, and is now known as the “Picasso of Pastry”.
There’s really something adventurous about Pierre Hermé that is almost hypnotic and unique to the genius pastry chef and his exquisite creations.
If you haven’t already tried French macaroons, you have to! It’s definitely the only place where you can have absolutely delicious macaroons, moist, tender, crisp, and luscious and tart.
Pierre Hermé promises a divine experience that will exceed your expectations.
Each product is a masterpiece in itself. It’s one of those unique stores, where taste and beauty are one and the same. All over Paris, Pierre Hermé also serves other delicacies: ice-creams and sorbets, cookies and biscuits, chocolates, truffles, pastries, viennoiseries, waffles, beverages etc. All made, of course, with the utmost care and passion.
“The macaroon, though only a few grams, agitate our senses. The eyes have already devoured them. Fingers skim their surface, the flavors are gently smelled. When their fine crunchy shell is crushed, the ears are excited by the sound. Then the mouth experiences a delicate grace…”
In short, Pierre Hermé is the sacred kingdom of tastes, textures and colors.
You may find his shops all over Paris; but if you’re staying at the Hotel Louvre Marsollier, you’re only 5 minutes’ walk from Pierre Hermé’s Shop on the famous Avenue de l’Opéra.

If on your busy holiday schedule in Paris, you’ve planned on visiting the monumental and historic basilica “La Basilique Sacré-Cœur “of Montmartre, you have no excuse not to stop by the magical restaurant “Le Relais Gascon “.
It is only 30 minutes’ walk from the “Hotel Louvre Marsollier Opera” you chose to stay in; and if you don’t feel like walking, take your map out of your pocket and grab the next metro “Abbesses” , which is the deepest station in the Paris Metro, at 36 meters below ground; and you’re good to go for an unforgettable experience, heading uphill in the heart of the amazing village of Montmartre, definitely one of the most fascinating neighborhoods in Paris, and a must-see for the perfect tourist that you are !
“Le Relais Gascon” is a charming two floors restaurant; typically French where you can chose among 10 giants bowls of salad, each generous and delicious. Made of fresh and crunchy green lettuce as well as juicy tomatoes, they all come covered with golden crispy potatoes sautéed with garlic and parsley. Personally, my favorite is the “Salade Gascon” garnished with slices of smoked duck, block of foie gras with toasted bread and a divine vinaigrette dressing. But if you are more of a sea-food person, you can still have the “Salade Océane” coming with shrimps, smoked salmon and creamy slices of avocado!
Looking for a delightful lunch or dinner at the best price in an amazing spot in Paris? Run there. It should not exceed 20 euros per person.

The Chalet des Iles — Chalet of the Islands, in English — is a charming little spot in the middle of the Boulogne woods in the 16th arrondissement of Paris. It is perfect for those who wish to take advantage of the beautiful summer weather by escaping to a completely natural environment. Gone are the hustle and bustle of Paris, replaced by a small island on a lake, a newly built terrace and barques where visitors can grab a bite to eat on the water.
Guests staying at the Hôtel Louvre Marsollier can enjoy a full menu of delicious fresh food. The food selection has been reviewed and renewed for the summer, with an emphasis on freshness and a focus on Mediterranean cuisine. Cedric Poncet, the chef at the Chalet des Iles, has therefore constructed an offering that includes sea bass with coconut milk, rosemary lamb with aubergine caviar and berry soup with peppered mint.
In addition to delicious dishes, patrons can also visit the new casual bar and enjoy a snack, a cocktail or a glass of wine while dangling their feet in the water. The terrace has been redesigned in a vintage spirit that mixes natural wood and metal. Often, there is even music to add to the cozy ambiance.
For those who want an extra romantic touch, the Chalet des Iles offers picnic baskets to be shared atop a barge. The picnic baskets are only offered from the end of June until the end of August 2014, so visitors should not hesitate to inquire about them at the Chalet des Iles. After eating in the restaurant or on a barque, patrons can then take a lovely walk on the wooded paths on the island. There, they are welcomed by a variety of flora and fauna, allowing them to feel completely immersed in nature.
