The garden of the Palais Royal
How can we talk about spring in the capital without mentioning the garden of the Palais Royal?
True gem, this haven of peace is worth a visit. Located in the 1st district, just a few steps from the hotel, it was created in 1629 by Cardinal Richelieu, who had acquired the palace two years earlier. Initially reserved for the royal family and the nobility, the garden was opened to the public after Richelieu’s death and quickly became one of the favourite spots for Parisians. Over the years, the garden has undergone many improvements to make it a place of entertainment and culture. Whether you are a theatre enthusiast, looking for a gourmet break, or simply wishing to wander around a shop, you will undoubtedly find an activity that suits you.
Our favourites? The various fountains that adorn the park! They present a harmonious mix of classical styles, like the Neptune fountain, and modern styles, like the Pol Bury fountain. Unique, they add a touch of tranquillity and beauty to the entire park. The Palais Royal Garden is undoubtedly a must-visit place for those looking to immerse themselves in French culture and history.
Fench Art de Vivre
Elegant and refined, French Art de Vivre is often considered a model of sophistication. This philosophy of life explores simple pleasures through gastronomy, fashion and art, enriched by its culture and history.
Spring lights illuminate the capital, giving you the opportunity to stroll through its streets and enjoy their unique Haussmannian architecture. It’s the perfect time to immerse yourself in the French culture by visiting museums and exhibitions.
After a visit, this laid-back lifestyle will surely lead you to a Parisian café. On the terraces you will find busy workers, curious tourists and dreamers looking for a moment of Parisian simplicity. These are the most appreciated places of writers and artists for centuries.
And you, what have you planned for your stay in Paris?
Looking forward to seeing you around a Parisian café!
