Le musée de la vie romantique

Last month I discovered one of the cutest museum in Paris: le Musée de la vie romantique. It is a very small and discreet museum, hidden at the end of an alley but so charming! I went there to see the exhibition called “The power of flowers” which was focused on the work of the famous painter Pierre-Joseph Redouté. I then enjoyed a coffee in their cute salon de thé in the middle of the garden! This museum is definitely worth a visit!

Le mois passé, j’ai découvert le musée le plus charmant de Paris, à savoir le Musée de la vie romantique. C’est un petit musée très discret, au bout d’une allée mais tellement charmant! J’ai pu admirer l’exposition “Le Pouvoir des fleurs” de Pierre-Josep Redouté dont je suis une grande fan et ensuite faire une petite pause, à l’ombre, au sein du petit salon de thé. A découvrir absolument!

A frenchic place to visit: Giverny

Giverny is a small village located in the beautiful area of Normandy and it is so charming! It is very well-known because of Monet who lived there. Many other impressionist artists were attracted by the landscapes and the atmosphere as well. You can visit the property of Monet by stepping into the colourful house and by wandering around the magnificent gardens.

A Frenchic place to visit: le jardin des plantes, part 1

My summer vacation start today and I have been looking forward to it as tiredness has kind of “invaded” my body! So I will be exploring, discovering, relaxing, drawing and painting, reading, eating good food, visiting family and friends, etc…. But before all of that let me present you a beautiful place in Paris: the botanical garden called “Le Jardin des plantes”. (The garden of plants). It is located in the 5th arrondissement and it is the place when science, nature and history meets. It was created in 1635, project initiated by the doctor of the king Louis XIII. At that time it was called the Royal garden of medicinal plantes but became the garden of plants after the revolution. It is really worth walking around the elegant alleys, sitting on a bench and enjoying a little bit of quietness, admiring the elegant buildings and all the flowers and plants nature has to offer.
