I have just discovered this neighborhood in my recent visit on March and LOVED it. It reminded me a bit of the Lower East Side in New York before becoming popular

“But Batignolles? That’s a local, well-kept secret.”

And we’d love to keep it that way 😉 Don’t get me wrong, you have an amazing website and great articles allowing foeigners to know the Paris’s essentials and our lifestyle.

But what’s the point to not let people discovering those gems by themselves ? Do you know why Le Marais, Montmartre or other higly recognisable places do not have – anymore – this Batignolles mood ? Crowd.

When I’m travelling I always try to connect with people, discovering places off the radar by sharing with strangers. In my opinion, this is the most interesting and rewarding way to discover a new place. Since information is poured over the internet, people just don’t try anymore to adventure in an unknown world, that’s kinda sad.

Again, I really appreciate this blog. Even if I was born and raised in Paris, the way you see some “quartiers” is refreshing and drives me to return to some places I didn’t visit for ages.

I hope I will not hurt anyone’s feeling, this is not my intent. Congrats to all of you for running this website ))

Oh la lovely! I adore Anne Brones’ cool and cosy stories and photos from Paris!

I can’t believe I missed out on this amazing neighborhood! Yet another reason I need to go back to Paris!
