  • If you're a cheese lover, Barthelemy is the Tiffany's. Perhaps one of my favorite stores in the world. Small, but nothing, a spectacle of cheese is not missing. In full rue de Grenelle, in the District of St Germain. Since my first visit to Paris more than 20 years ago have been faithful to a visit and purchase of cheese here. Old premises run by a family expert in cheeses that are happy to assist you. A fromagerie 5 * luxury. Formidable!

  • Have been a client in this incredible "Fromagerie" since 1972... still unique and the best in Paris... The delightful Mrs Barthelemy managing this little treasure house for cheese lovers for the last 43 years !
  • Fantastic!!!
  • France in Cheeses. In choosing France, I chose culture. And of course gastronomy. I love the extremes to which the tastes run as well.
  • There is NO other place in the world to buy cheese! There is NO other place in the world to try cheese. This is such a find and in Paris! What could be better!!!
  • A great cheese store - and very much open for business, in spite of Google's mistaken indication
