A piece of Britain in Paris (Square d’Orléans)


Chopin once lived here… And George Sand wasn’t very far. Don’t ask what these two were up to.


A bit far from Orléans, the private square has been a listed national landmark since 1977.


In the middle of our street…


Neo classical fountains.


Not so neo neo classical motobike.


The English look and feel isn’t a coincidence. The square was built by Edward Cresy, a British architect. Hence the mews-like feel of the houses at the back and those in which Visionary Marketing is located.


Reminds me of Craven Gardens and Brook Mews North (W2) where I once lived.


Why are modern cars so awfully anaesthetic.
