CELEBRATE PARIS

THE PARIS STORE is the brainchild of Caroline O'Connell, author of Every Woman's Guide to ROMANCE IN PARIS, and filmmaker Kevin Knoblock.  Here you will find Paris mementos, gifts to share with friends, and advice for your future trips to the City of Romance and Light.  Bienvenue.

SPOTLIGHT ON PLACES IN PARIS

Angelina's Salon de Thé is my go-to place for a lovely lunch with French girlfriends or a meeting over Afternoon Tea. It's been a Paris landmark for over a century (lots of history between these Belle Epoque decor walls).  It's in the midst of the action on Rue de Rivoli facing the Tuileries Gardens, near Place de la Concorde.  (Pg. 74 in my Romance In Paris guide.)

FEATURED PARIS HOTEL

Hotel Relais St. Honore, on Rue St. Honore, is a wonderful choice for this chic and pricey neighborhood near the Louvre.  It's a 3-star boutique hotel with all the comforts, at a very good price for the area.  And, it meets my first require-ment for hotels--a great location with cafes, shops, wine bars, museums, and parks a few steps away.  (pg. 17 in Romance In Paris guide)
