La Neige- Place des Vosges



This week it snowed again in Paris and also right here in Birmingham, so I thought I'd show snow photos on both blogs today. Today the lovely Hôtel de Sully. You can enter the courtyard from a doorway at the Place des Vosges. Built around 1630 it has undergone many renovations and in 2000 became the Centre des Monuments Nationaux.

Glorious. And great idea to post snow on both. this has to be one of my favourite squares in Paris. So beautiful under snow.

Oh, so drifty and romantic! Sitting here in comfort, I can conveniently forget the less-romantic practicalities involved with such things.

If you haven't already, check out the ceiling in the bookshop the next time you are in Paris. It's absolutely spectacular.

The snow adds to the beauty of this building. I'm definitely going to try to find this courtyard when I'm there in a few months.

I'll be hoping for spring flowers sans la neige!

Place des Vosges and Hôtel Sully have very interesting histories and well worth the visit. Victor Hugo once lived in an apartment in Place des Vosges.

The main entrance to Hôtel de Sully is at 62, rue Saint-Antoine. Our last apartment was just across the street.

Thanks Starman, I've made a note of the address in my 'little black book'.

Anne, I've made a note to look at the ceiling in the bookshop as well.
