EXPLORING THE FOUQUET’S BARRIERE (SECOND PART)It’s amazing how going through these images gets me instantly back into this incredible trip to Paris that we enjoyed right before Christmas holidays. James and I were in the city in order to shoot a big project with Kérastase which will be released this year and we took advantage of the trip to extend our stay for a few days and explore a little bit Paris. All of our trips are usually so short, that we never have time to discover properly the city. Especially since we come to Paris mostly during fashion week month and spend most of our time in cabs or in the metro. This time, it was the ideal moment to take this chance. Paris in winter, and more precisely during Christmas time is pure magic. The streets are so bright and shiny. The shops are full of warm colors, candles and shiny goods. The restaurants are so cozy and well… There’s definitely something magical in the air.
One of the greatest things about staying at the hotel Fouquet’s Barrière is that it is located right on the Champs Elysées. It was so amazing as we were close to everything and spent our afternoons walking, heading to avenue Montaigne, enjoying the Rue Cambon and the jardin des Tuileries. Getting a little lost and buying lots of chocolates and macarons. We got lucky with the weather too. There was a golden glow illuminating our rooms back at the hotel and one thing for sure is that it was super tempting to stay in and just enjoy this pure moment of bliss. If you’re ever in Paris make sure to stop by the Fouquet’s Barrière, even if you aren’t looking to have a stay you can always enjoy some delicious cocktails at their bar or have a lovely dinner at one of their restaurants before having a long walk on the champs. They have an inside pool and spa as well (quite uncommon for a parisian hotel!), so if you’re ever looking to pamper in the middle of a busy day or willing to offer a nice gift to one of your beloved ones : that’s the spot!
