in Paris


Just above the 3rd Arrondissement of Paris, is a little intersection of streets, between Metro Art des Metiers and Metro Temple, that is suprisingly barren for Paris. Being such a small city yet with so many neighbourhoods giving such different atmospheres making the city feeling bigger than what it is, there is still this tiny section that is, well, bare! Lacking character or that typical Parisian charm, old boarded up boulangeries look so sad!
But wait...

A new neighbourhood is being born right in this triangle. A trendy manufactured village of the best high end boutiques with the best chefs in the world coming in to make La Jeune Rue - the biggest design Project Paris has ever seen bringing together food and design.

Specialty cheese shops, gourmet restaurants, decadent best-of-the-best boulangeries, patisseries, bars, clubs, clothing stores...all bneing designed by the worlds top architects and designers, this is going to be a very exciting pocket of Paris. and yes we're spilling the beans. But thats all we have so far so watch this space as the area develops into a worldwide gourmet mecca!

For now Head to the heart of the intersection and try the first of the fine dining experiences already establish and running:

Argentinian meets French cuisine in this uber trendy restaurant. Sitting in the midst of rubble and urban street chaos and bareness this restaurants is delicious, divine and so beautiful inside keeping the original decor and art nouveau artworks and touches

*Open Daily except Mondays
*Reservations necessary

L'Escapadou - to Cordes-Sur-Ciel

Meet our NEW French home in Cordes-Sur-Ciel village - WINNER of the most beautiful French village award for 2014 by the French Tourism Convention. 

Available now for booking your French Country Escape, residence L’ Escapadou is a perfect blend of the past and the present.  Original parts of the home date back to the 13th Century, when Templar Nights roamed the cobble-stoned streets of Medieval Cordes. Over time the home has seen things we can only imagine. Today, L’ Escapadou is owned by a French/Australian couple who use the home throughout the year but are based in Melbourne. The home has been beautifully restored to incorporate ruins from buildings that once stood, to now a light filled home set over 3 levels, perfectly perched on the hill and 5 minutes by foot to all amenities. 

The owners have great knowledge of home styling and have spent the last 4 years sourcing vintage pieces from flea markets in France to ensure the home is authentic and personable whilst remaining practical for a holiday stay. L’Escapadou extends beyond that of standard rentals and invites you to enjoy a moment in France amongst great aesthetics and charm. Boasting 5 bedrooms, and 2 large living areas, kitchen and large laundry as well as swimming pool, garden, gazebo and balcony.

A tranquil hide away from the big cities in France but still walking distance to all the amenities that await you, just outside your door. 

Once you arrive in Cordes you may well not use the car for days but wander thru the winding, mysterious streets that have been walked by so many before us.

HOW TO GET there:
Fly: Toulouse airport 50 km away (hire car recommended)
Train: Paris-Vindrac Station 3 km from Cordes sur Ciel
For International travellers: Transfer from Paris, London Heathrow, Frankfurt to Toulouse Airport.
