Jules & Julie Rive gauche : St Germain des Prés & Sèvres babylone - Jules & Julie

About the area

Historically, Paris’ Rive Gauche was frequented by artists, musicians and intellectuals, who enjoyed gathering in clubs and cafés. Paris’ chicest area is now a home to a handful of elegant Parisiennes – the kind of woman who wear striped shirts, ballet flats and stroll the neighborhood with a baguette tucked under their arm. Many of the city’s retail and cultural institutions also decided to establish themselves in the neighborhood, making it an absolute must-see.
