With 50 millions tourists in 2019, Paris is certainly the most attractive capital of the world. Departing from QUARTIER LIBRE**** you can set yourself free from the most visited places to experience the city like a Parisian and make it your own.
As far as the music goes, eight minutes away from the residence, Le Trianon is the place to attend extraordinary concerts. On March 28th, the event “La France enchantée” (Enchanted France) will gather more than 20 famous French artists from all origins : Algerian born Enrico Macias, Israeli born Yaël Naïm, or Beninese Angélique Kidjo for a serie of duets revisiting French popular songs. Le Trianon, 80 bd de Rochechouart, 75018 Paris. Info.
Paris wouldn’t be Paris without its suburbs. Called “the Greater Paris”, the region of 10 millions inhabitants is a great territory of urbanization and experimentation. You can visit Versailles but, much closer to QUARTIER LIBRE**** you can also check on the Avant-garde in Clichy, where the “POUSH manifesto” established some young artists in former offices… Poush Manifesto, 6 boulevard du Général Leclerc, 92110 Clichy. Info.
Feeling like doing some shopping? Le Printemps or les Galeries Lafayette are within walking distance. But you can also hop on a ‘vélib’ in front of the residence, like a real Parisian and ride to the fringe of the Marais, to reach the very trendy 11th arrondissement and the concept store “Merci”. Clothes, linens, dishes … Eclecticism is the key and if you need a break, a ginger drink at the cafeteria filled with books is the most energizing experience. Merci, 111 Bd Beaumarchais, 75011 Paris.
