Spring in Paris, France – Hotel, Shops,Bakery around Place Saint Ferdinand #Review

Sharing is caring!

In the spring I was in France and Spain with my daughter.  We had a wonderful time traveling and she got to experience Paris through my eyes (I lived in Paris for a year after graduating from high school).  I have a love of Paris that runs deep and no matter how often I return, it is never long enough.  We stayed in the 17th Arrondissement, close L’etoile (where the Arch de Triomphe is located). Our hotel had a great location and was quaint. By quaint I mean the room was fairly small but getting a reasonably priced room in Paris is almost impossible.

to the Here are a few pictures that I took of the shops and area surrounding the lovely hotel we stayed in.

View from Place Saint Ferdinand.  Our hotel was on rue, Saint Ferdinand but the view from our hotel was of the other street.

A small monument in the center of Place Saint Ferdinand.  Just a short, short walk from our hotel:

The Patisserie Boulangerie was just down the street from our hotel.
They also had salads and other yummy treats for a light dinner

A Classic French Sandwich is a Croque Monsieur: Ham, Cheese, Béchamel sauce then covered in cheese and grilled. Truly not to be missed but should be heated for best taste.

This Cheese Shope was exceptional and they also had a selection of wines to choose from. Pick up a bottle, some cheese and then a baguette at the Patisserie across the street.  You will not go wrong.

The selection of beverages was extensive.  So if you were not in the mood for beer or wine there were juices, water and pop to choose from.
