Hôtel Le Six

      Nestled in a quiet street behind the Boulevard du Montparnasse, Hotel Le Six is worth a visit … The Montparnasse of the 20s where Ernest Hemingway found his marks between the Coupole and the bar Falstaff is located nearby. The clientele of the Six, classified in category 4 stars,  gathers 80% of Americans willing to discover the “Paris is a party” of the writer. The establishment is part of the Maisons de Georges collection which also includes the Gaston and Observatoire hotels. The Bonneau family, of Brittany origin, owns it. The decor here is that of a family house revisited with taste and refinement by the interior decorator and architect Stéphane Renaud from the Mouvement carré agency.       The bias was that of greening  depicted in  Spirit jungle styled wallpapers in the common areas. In 41 rooms spread over 6 floors, the walls are embellished with fabrics of the same spirit signed Pierre Frey and Christian Lacroix.         The hotel offers 3 suites of 35 square meters each with a small personalized living room in a space composed of exposed beams with a nice view on the roofs of Paris.   A Six

Nos Ancêtres les Gaulois

 The restaurant Nos Ancêtres les Gaulois located 39 rue St. Louis  en l’île   celebrates its fiftieth anniversary this month  in a setting alternating between hunting trophies, unusual objects and barrels of wine. In the 17th century at the same location was a forge with exposed beams and stone walls. For 50 years already, this authentic Parisian institution regales the most ferocious appetites in a friendly and joyful atmosphere with a unique “all inclusive” formula. You can taste at will a delicious buffet, meat grilled over a wood fire (rib steak, leg of lamb, wild boar sausage, chicken label red chicken, duck confit), cheese platters to share, seasonal fruits and various desserts. We will appreciate the wine served at discretion in huge barrels!     The team of this authentic place is waiting for you, wearing a Gallic cap with the famous horns (beef). After making the necessary connection with the famous national hero Asterix, it reminded me of the costume of Herero and Namas in Namibia. The latter are herders of cattle herds. They defended their good lands against the German Lords who wanted to remove them at the beginning of the XXth century. Their descendants have kept the wearing

The Gers region echoes in images with its generous nature and its disconcerting landscapes. It vibrates in winter and summer between music, circus and innovative forms in the field of cooperation between local artisans. Like a friendship that is woven over time, Occitanie does not stop challenging our epicurean desires.While the winter frosts nestle in the small villages of Simorre or Lombez, we can still hear the fanfares of the 31st Festival Circa move away until next autumn …. The Fall of the Angels, a choreographed show by Raphaëlle Boitel The history of the Circa Festival in Auch started in the mid-70s with the Pop Circus in the attic of an oratory, not far from the banks of the Gers river, thanks to the abbot of Lavenère-Lussan.
