Paris Fashion Week and Rue Cambon



I love . I know I mention this all the time but it’s only because it’s true. Hotel rooms are so tidy and I guess I just need to be free of my clutter and debris. I also like a hotel that gives you your own little coffee pot at breakfast (I drink tea in the morning at home but when I’m out I always have coffee).

When I was a student and in between flats I once shared my friend’s chambre de bonne (tiny single room flat usually on the top floor) across from on Rue Cambon, and for some reason I found it very funny that years later I’m staying on Rue Cambon but this time I’m at the lovely Castille Paris (33-37 Rue Cambon), right beside , for ! It seems ironic…but not accidental, it actually seems odd because it feels normal.

I love going to Paris because I really love . It doesn’t matter how late it is, there is always a cafe open – it’s not the same as going to your local English pub. I’ve also decided that when I’m 75 I want to dress like a 75 year old, chic Parisian woman: clean lines, beautiful fabrics, a scarf, good shoes and nice hand bag. It gives me something to look forward to, and if I’m going to be old I’m going to dress well!

    Hi Rachel,

    Thanks for the kind comments. The hotel was lovely, it was cosy but it didn’t feel small – actually it really was perfect!
