Quiet and Clean

by volarevolare about VVF Vacances Touring Hotel Magendie

It was my last night in Paris and I stayed in this small hotel in Rue Corvisat.

It's a residential area that's just about 25 minutes away from Paris. Really convenient.

Clean, spartan rooms that look out into the surrounding streets or into the hotel courtyard.
Quiet and peaceful...

For charm and very tiny rooms...

by LeeParis

For charm and very tiny rooms (!) choose the Hotel Saint Louis. This 17th (or is it 16th?) century building is on the little island in the Seine, the Ile Saint Louis. I don't know if Denis still works there, but he was simply wonderful. The breakfast room, way down the stairs, is great. Stone arches overhead, with lovely croissants and baguettes on the tables. Ah....
On my second trip, I stayed in the much more ordinary Hotel Magendie, which is in the 13th arondissment. Still, it's Paris...and the breakfast room, though ordinary, had delectable croissants and pain au chocolat!
The Hotel Saint Louis is a bit pricey although not as bad as the other two hotels I know of on the Ile Saint Louis. The location makes it expensive.

The Hotel Magendie is cheaper...less charm, and not right in the heart of Paris. Still, it wasn't a long walk to the Glaciere metro stop. From there, I got around quite nicely. The Hotel Saint Louis is a hop, skip, and a jump from Notre Dame cathedral and the rest of the Ile de la Cite sites.

Fashion Show in Paris

by ZenFan

Hey guys!
I am planning a trip to Paris in the spring 2011. I would like to make my daughter's wish come true, and take her to a fashion show. Does anyone know how can I arrange this? We might be interested in buying, but that depends on the offer.
Thanks in advance!

Re: Fashion Show in Paris

I just went (last month) to a FREE fashion show at Galleries Lafayette Department Store in Paris.

It was fun. I think your daughter will enjoy it.

Just email them and let them know what date and you will get an email confirmation that you will print and take with you.

Here is the link:

Re: Fashion Show in Paris

by YuzzerBuzzer

We managed to get tickets for a fashion show though a local ticket agency called divento. They also have private invitations to designer sales. I went to a Prada sale while I was there and picked up a fantastic bag for a fraction of its retail price!
But I was told to get there early as all the great bargains get snapped up within a hour of opening. I advise you the same!
I found out later that through divento you can do designer outlet shopping! You may also be interested in that. I can't tell you more about it, since, unfortunately, I missed it this time! ahh... but maybe next time!
Good luck and have fun!

Travel Tips for Paris

The 7th Arrondissment

by Lady_Mystique

West of the 6th is the 7th arrondissement... with its major monuments, government buildings, embassies, upscale antique dealers, and elegant hotel particuliers.

Quieter at night than the 5th and 6th, its "quartiers" include Faubourg St. Germain, Invalides, Ecole Militaire, and Gros Caillou.
A food lover's delight, the 7th has excellent restaurants, abundant food shops, and the rue Cler food market, regarded by some as the best in Paris.

The 7th is also high on the tourist list: the Eiffel Tower, Champs de Mars, the Musee d'Orsay, Hotel des Invalides, Napolean's Tomb, Musee Rodin, and Ecole Militaire are all in this area of Paris.

FREE EDUCATION FOR FRENCH SPEAKERS WHO PASS EXAM

by thinking

The French feel post-secondary education is a basic right everyone should have access to.
Everyone has access to a public university, but those who can afford it can go to a private institution.
Private universities are referred to as Grandes Ecoles.

When French students graduate from high school, they receive a baccalaureate. With it, students are entitled to attend any university in the country. There is no selection process and grades do not matter. University-minded students then make a decision: Either go straight to university, or stay on and prep themselves for the rigorous exams to get into a Grande Ecole.

Tuition fees for the public system are heavily subsidized by the government and start at about 100 euros. For those who can't afford tuition, there are government scholarships. Plus, students from low-income families can have a large portion of their tuition paid for by the government.

Taxes in France are high, and the French government is strongly committed to putting money towards education. It accounts for more than 23 per cent of France's national budget -- a commitment of $8,000 to each student per year. Last year, 2.2 million students were enrolled in universities across France.

For those frustrated with the French public system, there is the option of Grandes Ecoles. They are expensive, exclusive and prestigious. Often smaller in size, they tend to specialize in one area of study. Tuition ranges from $5,000 to $19,500 a year. Students who want to attend must spend two years taking preparatory classes after receiving their baccalaureate. The classes prepare students for extremely difficult and competitive entrance exams, which cost money to take. Even then, many students do not pass them.

The request is polite, but the intent is clear!

A sign found in a housing courtyard on the right bank. It politely asks that you refrain from certain activities in the interest of "tranquility", but is clear that failure to respect the sign will bring action to follow!
