  • Passover, the opportunity to taste chocolate, the idea was we form an opinion on this well-known House. No disappointment, hospitality professionals, the Council are at the height. A non-aggressive soft chocolate, the real taste. As for the parts filled a revolution.

  • Have a sweet tooth? Then add this candy boutique to your list of visits when in Paris. You'll find some of the best handmade chocolate in Paris here, plus an assortment of candied and sugar infused treats. The building is beautifully preserved and sets the scene of historic glamour and grandeur before you even cross the threshold. Be prepared to spend a few euro, it's not cheap however the prices to reflect the quality of the products in store. You definitely get what you pay for here 😍
  • Sweets paradise. Amazing place with lots of candy like souvenirs.
  • Definitely what I expected from such a historical Paris icon. The chocolate lived up to the reputation. Will absolutely go back for more.
  • If you are a chocolate fan, this is your place. Not much variaty but a great place.
  • One of my favorite chocolate shops in Paris.

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
