Stay: Le Narcisse Blanc
While many hotels serve as a place to anchor your luggage and to place your head on a pillow, Le Narcisse Blanc is not one of those hotels. When you cross the threshold into its rooms, even the most frequent of travelers can be gobsmacked. It may very well have the nicest hotel rooms we've ever stayed in. In fact, the rooms are so elegant, that we took pains to not disturb them too much and removed are shoes and neatly put away our belongings. It's Parisian chic done meticulously well. And if that weren't enough, the have a very nice spa and swimming pool that one should definitely take advantage of.
Breakfast: Nelly Julien Douceurs et Traditions
There's no shortage of great bakeries in Paris, but arguably the best croissant is the one nearest to you. Rest assured Douceurs et Traditions, a five minute walk from Le Narcisse Blanc, has fabulous croissants. The bakery was rated as the number three best croissant maker in 2014.
France has a rich tradition of ethnic North African cuisine which is often overlooked. Don't make that same mistake. Keziah has incredible Moroccan cuisine served in an informal, family friendly, atmosphere. Be sure to order the tajine, and the bastilla. And of course finish the meal with some traditional Moroccan mint tea.
