Maison La Roche

Maison La Roche, also Villa La Roche, is a house in Paris, designed by Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret in 1923-1925. It was designed for Raoul La Roche, a Swiss banker and collector of avant-garde art.

Villa La Roche now houses the Fondation Le Corbusier. La Roche commissioned Le Corbusier to build a villa as well as a gallery to house his art collection.

In July 2016, the house, Villa Jeanneret, and sixteen other works by Le Corbusier were inscribed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

 

 

L’industrie, café restaurant in Paris

Café de L’industrie is located in Bastille. It is one of the better steakhouses in Paris and has fair prices and a lively ambiance, very Parisian. A simple and effective menu with classics, all for a reasonable price. It is nice to eat in a large space, which is still rare in Paris. This place feels like dining in a museum, the décor is made up of old pictures and paintings on the wall and old wood panelling in its original place.

 

 

 

The Musée Picasso

The Musée Picasso housed in Hotel Salé is located in Le Marais in the third district of Paris. The museum closed its doors to rebuild, restore and modernize it.

The renewed museum opened on October 25, 2014 for the public. The museum gives an overview of Pablo Picasso’s total work.

On the third floor, since 2014, the artist’s art collection has come to an end. The collection in the Musée Picasso Paris includes more than 5000 works and tens of thousands of archive pieces, including sketches, studies, drawings, sketchbooks, engravings, photographs, illustrated books and documents.

The Hotel Salé has been a historic monument since 1968 and is definitely worth a visit. Certainly as a  museum of course, but also as an architectural work of art.

Both the outside and the inside with the breathtaking beautiful staircase is worth your attention.

There is no better place to host Pablo Picasso’s work and no better way to say goodbye for now to Paris by seeing this beautiful place!

 

 

 

Le Labo

Entering Le Labo, you can smell the scent of flowers. What I like about a perfume is that the smell of a perfume brings back memories. It’s the perfect gift and raised in New York. The team hand mix the fragrance to order so that you always get the freshest ingredients. They blend it all using a precise formula so you always get the same amazing fragrance. Finally, each bottle has a personalised label so it is extra special. I am obsessed with sense. I have always loved perfume and a chic brand Le Labo is a current favorite. You have to experience it for yourself. My favorite in the collection is Fleur D’oranger 27. You can make your own bottle. The age in process right in front of you rather than ages before. You have to experience it yourself!

 

 

The Broken Arm

Another perfect spot to have breakfast or a delicious lunch is at the Broken Arm. I always have to go to this place to enjoy their healthy food and juices. After this you can find me in the shop, where they have a great selection of clothing, books and magazines.

Palais Royal

After a stroll to Palais Royal, I can’t resist to have this picture taken! Time to visit the beautiful shops in this neighbourhood and the magnificent gardens.

Café life

One of my favorites places to start my morning is café Palette with his authentic Parisian terrace. It’s located in the 6th arrondisement in Saint-Germain-des-Pres, in one of these narrow little streets. Having my first cup of coffee & croissant in this artistic ambiance is always a delight. A typical Parisian restaurant and famous for their Chablis with cheese and charcuterie.

Paris…is always a good idea

If you ask me where to go for a long weekend…it’s definitely Paris! It’s not far from Amsterdam and you just can take the car or Thalys whenever you want and take me there . I love that feeling of freedom.
