Let’s conquer the Boulevard Saint-Germain! Prepare your expedition by having a look at the superb Parisian addresses that will help you make the best of your wanders.

Saint Germain des Prés, this is the Parisian neighborhood where time seems to have stopped. Yet, eras mix with one another through the varied architectures, some are even from the medieval era. And here there are, frozen in time, ready to face all the centuries and uniting their styles to offer the whole world a timeless retrospective of the city of Paris. We also know the Saint Germain neighborhood for its love for literature. Here, second-hand boo sellers showcase the beautiful ancient leather book covers of their most beautiful treasures all along shop windows. Other windows display more uncommon items, showing us here, that time has no effect. By turns, we discover typewriters, vintage cameras and even china dolls.

But, Saint Germain des Prés is also a place of luxury, French elegance. The beautiful fashion, beauty and furniture brands follow but do not resemble one another while remaining faithful to the fashion image Paris conveys throughout the world, but not only: gastronomy is also given pride of place, from this gem of a neighborhood that we find in the local café to the passionate wine merchant who knows everything about wine.

You get it, this neighborhood seems to have no concept of time and you’re likely to (re)discover the Parisian soul in many aspects. And to discover it from every angle, follow the guide!
