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.
