Jardin du Luxembourg
Located between Saint-Germain des Prés and the Quartier Latin, Jardin du Luxembourg is one of the most beautiful parks in Paris! I love how the Parisian architecture, the various ponds, fountains, pavilions, birdhouses and numerous statues coexist in perfect harmony. The park is divided in two main spaces: a French garden and an English one. ...

Marionnette Puppet Shows in little theatres across Paris
I cannot believe that I waited until my daughter was four to visit one of the Marionnette puppet shows. What a sweet effortless yet culture-rich activity for small children from one year old up to adults. We walked by the theaters in the Buttes Chaumont and the Jardin Luxembourg several times but I just couldn’t ...

Soeur
The concept of being chic starts early in Paris. As you can imagine even little girls have an innate sense of style, so their older sisters are off the chart! Luckily enough there is now a shop just catering to the 10-14 bracket. Soeur was opened by two sisters, one, the co-founder of Bonton and ...

It might be the best-known park in Paris, but it is one of our favourite places to go. You cannot get a more Parisian park than the Luxembourg Gardens. It is so much fun, even as an adult, to rent one of the little sailboats in the main fountain of the garden and push it ...
