The Place des Vosges, with its blue slate roofs and mature Linden trees is the oldest formal square in Paris and has remained one of the most coveted addresses continually since the seventeenth century.
The residences and pavillon that face onto the square were built for the aristocracy by Henry IV in 1612, and have been home to successive generations of artists, writers, poets, courtesans and nobility. Flanked on all sides by the ‘galeries’ (arcades) that feature intimate cafes and fashionable art galleries, the Place des Vosges is that rare mix of bohemian glamour wed to noble lineage. It is the ideal location for a retreat into a culturally and historic rich slice of Paris. >>
