The Ultimate Paris Hotspot: Le Pavillon Des Lettres
Le Pavillon Des Lettres
Paris embraces its distinctive culture with a particular reverence for its literature and language, its art and architecture. A deep regard for artists and authors of the past inspires those of the present, as a stroll along the Left Bank will make apparent. The iconic Left Bank retains the bohemian charm of its notable past, the domain of quaint bookstores with literary finds in any European language, antiques both authentic and dubious, and aspiring artists displaying their endeavors, many eager to sketch your portrait. Strolling street musicians add to the undeniable romantic atmosphere among the countless cafes and crepe stands. Imagine the Left Bank magic of Midnight in Paris at Owen Wilson’s haunt, the Goose Cafe, or recapture the mid-century musical charms of Gene Kelly and Leslie Caron dancing and singing through An American in Paris. Paris is timeless romance and countless movies continue to remind us, from the historic beauty of Victor Hugo’s Les Miserables and Hunchback of Notre Dame to French Kiss and Gigi. No one can Forget Paris.
Nearby in the 8th arrondissement, Le Pavillon Des Lettres boutique 4 Star hotel hosts its guests with a unique celebration of this reverence for literature and the arts in its romantic charm and literary interiors designed by Didier Benderli.
