The Riches of Paris:  A Shopping and Touring Guide

The Riches of Paris: A Shopping and Touring Guide

If you’re headed to Paris soon or are just an armchair traveler that enjoys curling up with your eBook, may I recommend my books, The Riches of Paris:  A Shopping and Touring Guide and The Riches of France:  A Shopping and Touring Guide to the French Provinces. They’re perfect for Francophiles interested in knowing more about the places they’re discovering.

The eBook versions of my classic guidebooks come just in time for spring/summer travels to the French capital and the provinces of France. How handy it is to pull them up on your mobile device or eBook reader to find out about the most interesting places and products to savor.

For Paris, you can learn about the city’s grand shopping districts, colorful markets and beloved off-the-beaten-path boutiques as well as the most enchanting locales to sip a glass of champagne to toast your day in the French capital. Published in 2007 by St. Martin’s Griffin, this insider’s guide still has plenty to offer, since most of the establishments I feature—from couture houses to department stores to quaint shops to all kinds of dining establishments and hotels—have been at the top of Parisians’ hit list for ages. Most of all, as with the Chic Promenade shopping service I founded in the late eighties, each description showcases the history and tradition behind big and small names from my own special carnet d’adresses. To me, it’s the story that matters most. In this book I tell it in vivid detail from how Louis Vuitton began to why the sourdough breads of Poilâne warm your heart and soul to where to find a traditional bistrot at the Bastille with a twist. I love sharing the reasons why I think you should go to such and such a place during your precious time in Paris.

The Riches of France:  A Shopping and Touring Guide to the French Provinces

The Riches of France: A Shopping and Touring Guide to the French Provinces

Published in 1997 also by St. Martin’s Griffin, The Riches of France:  A Shopping and Touring Guide to the French Provinces offers a wealth of information about the regions of France from Brittany to Corsica and the story behind the products they produce. Roquefort cheese, for example, has existed since the seventh century. Limoges, Baccarat and Provençal fabrics have also been around for centuries, to name just a few. And wouldn’t you love to learn about my top spa recommendation on the Atlantic coast or a darling place to dine along the Wine Route in Alsace?

Whether in Paris or the French provinces, I’ve always focused on the bastions of tradition and that’s exactly what you’ll find described in vivid detail in these two guidebooks.

Bonne promenade wherever you find yourself in France, even if it’s in your dreams!
