Paris Week 2 - May 2014 Printemps

Bonjour my sweet spring sun in Paris. Well we, Petite Paris, have ticked off week 2. It's all going by just way too fast... We need 2 years not 2 months living in Paris. BUT...we wont forget to stop and smell the roses, it's pretty darn sweet living la vie Parisian for any about of time...

Very happily we have been SUPER successful in our Paris endeavour and have landed 10 new Paris B&Bs and apartment to add to our website HURRAH!!! Stay tuned and follow us to find out when they will be on the website ready for viewing and booking (not long, just as fast as our petite fingers can work hehehe) We have found a beautiful romantic rooftop attic B&B suite in the 15th near the well known commerical and bustling rue Commerce. The 15th is an alluring area known for its charmingly less touristy, more residential authentic Parisian life atmsophere with all the local village needs one could possibily want.

We have secured 4 apartments on the border of the marais and the Bastille, since we know so many of you cave that chic cosmopolitan and gorgeous cobblestoned historic area we know as le Marais :)

And also in the Marais, right in the heart of it all on rue Turenne, a classic traditional B&B with 2 guestrooms offered by one of the loveliest most hospitable hosts we have met...

As for all the other fun stuff, here is our week 2 in Paris in photo diary roll. ps the spring warmth is really starting to hit, yesterday was a short sleeve, basking in the cafe sun kinda day - tres exciting! Enjoy!!!!

my sweet morning view from le Petite Paris apartment hello weekend, saturday, sun and coffee waiting for me. Its going to be an amazing day 10 in Paris

the neighbourhood in the morning before the weekend folk are up. Petite Paris', us, doing our early morning stroll... the lighting is so magical and utterly enchanting...oh Paris

morning tea, boulangerie

an absolutely bewitching shot and lighting of le eiffel, taken from today's exploration of the Architecture Museum at Trocadero, Paris. Petite Paris Day 10 at

for lovers of Paris' architecture... we highly recommend being blown away by the beautiful, grandeur artistic displays, artworks and sculptures at the Musee de L'architecture in Paris. — at Musée de l'architecture, Paris.

More of Paris day 10...checking out, digging into the quiet side of the 11th district of Paris (11eme) where 4 of our new apartments live... its a real part of paris, not touristic or overrun, but beautifully ordinary with just the right kind and enough urban spunk to still keep it exciting and fresh. Trendy bars, cafes, typical rues, a gorgeous grand unspoiled church @ This is Paris — at Eglise Saint Ambroise.

ce soir, Petite Paris stepped back into the back end of Montmartre and discovered a local secret intersection with lively cafes, restaurants and bars @ rue Duhesme and rue Marcadet. Family friendly restaurant was just the ticket for a convival dinner between friends and their bebes recommended family spot, not so much for food (a little on the bland side though the creme brulee was spot on) but for ease of comfort and atmosphere...

belle nuit tout le monde. from the midnight magic of montmartre. Petite Paris living in Montmartre ad loving it!!

Paris day 11 - 4th May

Petite Paris is in Paris. Day 11 starts with another Montmartre walk... green, gorgeous and utterly quaint...sides of Paris you don't see often. Paris authentic = Petite Paris — at Montmartre.

aujourd'hui, at the fleas! Flea Markets of Paris was todays indulgence... our favouirte is Porte de Vanves. and what a gorgeous green sunny day it was to stroll slowly, rummage, unearthe, take home and treasure forever, amazing antique goodies..

found at the fleas! today in Paris! Collectible Dolls were the theme of the day, cards, artworks, old journals, antiques of all sorts, jewellery we could not resist, quirky items you cant explain... so much to see. But take your own plastic bags, these vendors do not have any, take small money and do haggle some — at Puces De Vanves.


Petite Paris day 11, we also explored the Motnparnasse districts particularly around Gaite metro and stumbled into a gorgeous regular festive and fun neighbourhood, tourist-less, local-filled music, markets, masses and good old Parisian fun... j'adore discovering the real quaint corners of Paris — at Gaîté.

dinner at dusk back in the neighbourhood 2 Montmartre, ce soir Petite does vegetarian at cosy local nook — at Au Grain De Folie.

spectacular always to watch the dusk turn to dark from the Sacre Coeur Basilica.
