What Parisians Miss Most When Away From Paris

“Bread and cheese.”

Four Seasons Hotel George V

“The architecture.”

Hôtel Lancaster

“Sunrise time, sitting in a café with a warm croissant, our cheeses, bread and good wines.”

Hôtel d’Aubusson

“The elegance and the restaurant scene.”

Le Bristol Paris

“Beautiful architecture and the charm of Paris at night with the nice lighting of the bridges and buildings.”

Hôtel San Régis

“Definitely the French touch, which is hard to explain. When I arrived in France 35 years ago, the feeling I had was completely different. Now, I feel I am part of the beating heart, mix of cultures, lifestyles and challenges of Parisian society. It took me a long time to tame the city, but what is fantastic in Paris is that everyone is most welcome. Believe me, no other city in the world made me feel like this.”
