We went in search if Berthillion ice cream. It was August and the main cafe that sells it was closed for the holidays BUT right around the corner was a little shop that had a selection of about 15 flavors. The shops were wonderful. We were staying in a flat on the left bank but if I ever go back to Paris I will stay at one of the boutique hotels on the Ile Saint-Louis. It is a wonderful place.

The perfect place to walk and "rest" from the noise and crowded touristic places. There we can exercise the nice role of "flâneur". This french word carries the sense of strolling around, of the urban walker through the streets of Paris, that wonderful, wonderful city. At the Île people can just walk and appreciate without rushing. And there are lots of beautiful things to see, houses, trees, the streets, the river... It's beautiful.

Great little part of Paris went there for the famous Berthillion ice creams. Lovely little shops and not crowed at all.

with only a couple of streets, this island in the heart of Paris is a true treasure, quiet (at least after a rainy day), and housing one of the best ice cream ever, Berthillon. Also check out the their chous, this little store, Maison des chous (spelling?) specializes in this cream puff pastries that are really scrumptious. or just explore their artisanal cheese boutiques and other specialty stores. Lovely.

We loved staying on ile St Louis. It was so quaint and a break from the bustle of a Paris! The lack of a metro stop makes love of walking a must. Very friendly
