From the Upper East Side and Brooklyn, to the Palace Hotel and Palais Royal, Serena and Blair can always be spotted hand-in-hand. Take a look at some of the oh-so-fabulous spots this power duo take on in Paris.

screen-shot-2013-07-22-at-18-08-19

 

 

 

Ladurée Champs Elysées

Of course Blair and Serena want to have the most famous macarons in all of Paris at the most famous La Durée location, surrounded by high end shops like Chanel (Blair’s favorite) and Louis Vuitton (Serena’s favorite.)

This macaron shop is definitely one of the most charming places to visit in Paris! They have the most beautiful aesthetic that would make anyone feel like a royal guest, which is no wonder why it’s Blair’s favorite pastry shop. As a modern Marie Antoinette, Blair loves to indulge in the classic macarons while sipping on tea with the Eiffel Tower right behind her. Truth be told, the Laduree in Paris does not have outdoor seating with this view. The area, however, does not disappoint since l’Arc de Triomphe is right down the street!

Cafe de Flore


 

There is not a more emblematic Parisian cafe than Cafe de Flore : all of the top people of the city of love gathered here to do their favorite activity: Gossip. The perfect place for Blair who couldn’t resist their hot chocolate! Opened in 1887, it quickly became known as the birthplace of Surrealism (a french art movement of the early 20th century ‘transporting the audience into a world of dreams’) and later on as the meeting place of novelists, philosophers and show business stars since the 60’s. Even if a cup of coffee might seems slightly expensive (4.60 for an espresso), you to the Flore because you want to see famous people, and to be seen by them. Le Flore, somehow, is a modern version of Versailles.

Chocolat Michel Cluizel


Michel Cluizel continues his family business by expanding their locations all around Paris. Their craftsmanship and specialization in chocolate have kept the chocolatier’s reputation at the very top! What makes them stand out is their careful roasting process and their highly articulate decorating process. Honestly, who can resist the perfection of meticulously made chocolates from the shop that happens to be highly-frequented by the Queen B herself.

Cafe Louis Philippe

One of Blair and Serena go-to restaurants in Paris is Cafe Louis Philippe (located in front of the Saint Louis Island), these Upper Eastsiders seems to have brought their chicness in their luggage… Be careful and be sure to watch out Parisians, an uppity American girl might reign in your neighborhood while you’re enjoying the delight of the French Riviera.

This chic bistro lies right across the bridge from Il de la Cité, near Hotel de Ville and Le Marais. It’s on the other side of the river from the where the two girls stay and is technically in Blair’s “turf,” since she claimed the Right Bank.

Drouant

Looking for a trendy restaurant to set a perfect date in Paris ? Serena have plenty of these. One of Gossip Girl scenes was shot in Drouant restaurant, a fancy place offering tasty french cuisine. Owned by Antoine Westermann, one of the best french chief, you could also tried one his 4 others restaurants in Paris… or the one he opened in Manhattan in 2016. Looks like our Upper Eastsiders no longer need to take a plane to enjoy their favorite Roasted saint Pierre fish.

Cristal Room, Baccarat

Who can forget one of Blair’s most memorable dates with Prince Louis Grimaldi of Monaco in Paris?!Louis pretended to be the driver and his driver pretended to be him.  This is where Prince Louis disguises his true identity to protect himself from insincere people by claiming he was only the driver. Unfortunately for Blair, she did not make a good impression since she focused her attention on Jean Michele (who was the real royal chauffeur and not the prince). Blair’s disgraceful behavior prevented her from enjoying one of the best Parisian experiences a restaurant could offer.  Come on over to dine in the restaurant with decor dating back to the 19th century. Perhaps your hot date will surprise you with news that he’s European royalty! 

If you’re looking for one of the fanciest restaurants in Paris, then you’ve found it here. The Cristal Room is expensive and exclusive and requires formal attire.Richly decorated by the famous crystal designer Baccarat, the masterpiece of the room is their huge luster. Undoubtedly it will enhance the radiance of the diamond earrings your Prince Charming just offered you.

Marché Alibert


Every prince or princess has dream at least once of escaping from their Castle. Live a great adventure like Chuck in Paris : visit an ordinary yet Parisian neighborhood. When the most attractive realtor of Manhattan had lost memories, he was living in the 10th arrondissement of Paris. One of the scenes was set in the Alibert Market. Some delicious strawberries and a fresh floral bouquet in Paris,could you imagine a more romantic date with a handsome countryman ?

Pont des Arts

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We kept the most idyllic place for the end. The Pont des Arts (Arts’ Bridge) needs no introduction anymore. Located between the 6th and the 1th arrondissement, it’s known all around the world as one of the most romantic places in Paris. As Blair and Serena were both reining on each bank of the Seine, they met on this lovely bridge. Blair also daydreamed her story with Louis, enjoying fairytale-like march on the Pont des Arts. Although the City Hall had to take off the love locks (the weight was threatening the bridge to fall), you can still enjoy the delight of this lovely area. An artist or a Prince coming by may fell in love with you in this magical place.

Cezanne and I

20161 h 57 min
Overview

They loved each other with the ardor of thirteen-year-old boys. Rebellion and curiosity, hopes and doubts, girls and dreams of glory – they shared it all. Paul was rich, Emile poor. They went skinny-dipping, drank absinthe, starved, only to overeat. Sketched models by day, caressed them by night... Now, Paul is a painter and Emile a writer. Glory has passed Paul by. But Emile has it all: fame, money, the perfect wife, whom Paul once loved. They judge each other, admire each other, confront each other. They lose touch, meet up again, like a couple who cannot stop loving each other.

Hesitating between Paris and the French Rivera for you summer holiday ? Even one of the most talented French painters of the 19th century knew the struggle.

Cezanne and I, is a French movie that tells the life of a impressionist painter, Cezanne: between Paris and the Provence, he lives, insouciantly, with his friend, but nonetheless talented and famous, writer Zola.

 

Their story takes places between Paris and the French Riviera. Hopefully you’ll get the chance to see both of this stunning locations.  We’re going to share with you Cezanne’s favorite places which appeared in the movie!

‘It is a green hollow where a stream gurgles…’  *

 

Zola and Cezanne used to enjoy the typical daily life of a 19th century artist : . An entire concept summed up with the legendary poem of Baudelaire : Luxe, Calme et Volupté. During one of those days, dragged by the sweetness of life, Manet, another famous friends of Zola painted his master piece : Le déjeuner sur l’herbe (on the left “the lunch on the grass” in english). Rejected by the Académie multiple times, Cezanne is pictured as jealous, even mad, of his friends’ achievement in the movie.  However, one can only admit the atmosphere painting amazingly depicts joyful people in a quiet forest. If you’re looking for such vibe in Paris, we would recommend you to try the Chalet des Iles, a charming restaurant in the middle of the lake of Bois de Boulogne, or to throw a picnic yourself in a Paris’ Parks : les Buttes Chaumont would be perfect if you want greater spaces or the square Roger Stephane for more intimacy.

 

Authentic brasseries and bistrot, or how to find an office when you have no money

 

As part of this artistic life, Cezanne, Zola and their friends flocked in cafes and brasseries. Although the movie doesn’t reveal one very specific locations, the Set in Paris’ team, french food lovers deep down their souls,  recoommand you : Les Papilles, a small yet very authentic bistrot in the 6th arrondissement ; or Bouillon Chartier which no longer need introduction : stunning decor for fair prices, opened more than 100 years ago…

 

 

Paris; a home for artists?

Cezanne and I doesn’t not only tells a fabulous story about friendship; it also show the struggle of revolutionary painters like Cezanne. Rejected from the all the greatest art schools in Paris, he violently expressed his frustration in the movie. Les Beaux-Arts, opened in 1817, is still considered as the best school of arts today. Some visits are organised and have to be planned since teachers and students are still occupying the place.

Au Bonheur des Dames

The Bon Marché store, now and then 

Zola, his friend on the big screen and in real life, was the leading figure of naturalism, a 19th century movement close of realism (only with more scientific approach). One of his most famous novel, Au Bonheur des Dames, is based on the actual (fancy) store Bon Marche! It’s still one of the most chic Parisian store nowadays : don’t even hesitate to come by the jewlery corner, it’s  tiny Vendôme in itself ! You may fell in love a Chanel ring… Additionally, the movie In Secret (starring Elizabeth Olsen and Tom Felton)  is an adaptation of his book Therese Raquin.

 

If you’re willing to see and learn more about Cezanne or globally speaking impressionists, here are some exhibitions currently in Paris :

Boarding time for the French culture at the Orsay Museum Concerning Zola, you can today visit the house he bought in Paris’ surrounding, in Medan. More information here.

La première saison, qui verra Louis XIV à l’âge de 28 ans devenir le Roi Soleil, nous entrainera dans les affres du pouvoir, où se croiseront des personnages historiques et fictionnels, du courtisan malin au plus humble villageois qui nous guideront dans un monde de trahisons et de secrets d’alcôve, de manœuvres politiques et de déclarations de guerre, révélant Versailles dans toute sa grandeur et sa cruauté.

Les décors, indispensables au rendu crédible de la fresque, sont aussi à la hauteur de l’exigence déployée pour cette production. On retrouve donc huit joyaux de notre patrimoine, liés à cette période de l’histoire de France, qui ont accueilli les caméras :

Le château de Versailles

Compte tenu du sujet même de la série, le choix fut naturel de tourner réellement dans le somptueux château de Versailles, “inventé” par Louis XIV pour éloigner les Nobles de Paris, les garder sous contrôle, et, peu à peu alors, transformer Versailles en une prison dorée.
S’il est très difficile pour les réalisateurs de poser les caméras dans Versailles par souci de protection de ses trésors, nous avons tout de même déjà pu l’admirer dans le mythique Si Versailles m’était conté de Sacha Guitry, Marie-Antoinette de Sofia Coppola ou encore Les adieux à la reine de Benoît Jacquot.
Ce monument incontournable de notre patrimoine et son domaine vous attendent comme les millions de visiteurs chaque année. Nous vous conseillons d’ailleurs de réserver votre venue.
Toutes les infos ici.

Le château de Vaux le Vicomte

À une heure de Paris, le château de Vaux le Vicomte est la création de trois artistes réunis par Nicolas Fouquet, surintendant des finances de Louis XIV : l’architecte Louis Le Vau, le jardinier André Le Nôtre et le peintre-décorateur Charles Le Brun.
Unis par un génie fraternel, ils réalisent ensemble ce monument d’une parfaite harmonie entre architecture et paysage du XVIIème siècle. Dès son inauguration lors de la célèbre fête du 17 Août 1661, Vaux le Vicomte suscite la convoitise du Roi Soleil et devient le modèle dont l’Europe entière s’inspirera.
Depuis que le comte de Vogüé en a repris les commandes en 1968, l’apparat du château et son domaine mais aussi sa ressemblance avec Versailles qu’il simule à l’écran, attirent un grand nombre de tournages. On l’a ainsi vu dans La folie des grandeurs de Gérard Oury, James Bond : Moonraker de Lewis Gilbert, Ridicule de Patrice Leconte, L’homme au masque de fer de Randall WallaceMarie-Antoinette de Sofia CoppolaMolière de Laurent Tirard
Soucieux de préserver ce patrimoine d’exception français, ses co-dirigeants, Jean-Charles et Alexandre de Vogüé ouvrent toujours largement les portes de la propriété aux longs métrages mais avec un souci constant de ne pas galvauder son image et qu’aucune dégradation n’abîme ses murs ou ses parquets.
Ainsi, un cahier des charges détaillé est imposé à la production : pas de caméras dans la chambre du Roi, pas de spots ni de cigarettes, pas d’exploitation du mobilier, et tout le monde en chaussettes pour préserver les tapis. Il n’est pas non plus permis aux acteurs ou aux équipes de dormir au château. Seule Sophie Marceau a eu droit à ce privilège, la légende raconte même qu’elle se baigna nue un soir dans le bassin de la Gerbe…

Les jardins du château de Champs sur Marne

Comme nous vous l’avions présenté ici, le château de Champs sur Marne est un joyau méconnu du XVIIIème siècle qui vit se succéder les ducs de la Vallières, de Levis, la marquise de Pompadour, ainsi que Louis Cahen d’Anvers.
Il a accueilli un grand nombre de tournages comme Marie-Antoinette, Ridicule ou encore Les liaisons dangereuses. Fermé pendant 6 longues années pour rénovation, il est devenu aujourd’hui impossible pour les réalisateurs d’y poser leurs caméras. Jalil Lespert a pu toutefois profiter de ses jardins.

Le château de Maisons Laffitte

Le château de Maisons Laffitte est l’oeuvre la mieux conservée de l’architecte François Mansart, celle qui permet de saisir son génie architectural.
“Le château de Maisons, dont Mansart a fait tous les bâtiments et les jardinages, est d’une beauté si singulière qu’il n’est point d’étranger qui ne l’aille voir comme l’une des plus belles choses que nous ayons en France.” écrivait Charles Perrault.
René de Longueil, Président à mortier au Parlement de Paris, Surintendant des Finances en 1651, fit construire le château au XVIIème siècle afin d’y accueillir Louis XIV lorsque celui-ci se rendait à la chasse dans la forêt de Saint Germain.
Vous pouvez retrouver le château et son domaine dans de nombreux films : Guerre et amour de Woody Allen, Les liaisons dangereuses de Stephen Frears, La révolution française de Robert Enrico et Richard T. Heffron, La fille de d’Artagnan de Bertrand Tavernier, La reine Margot de Patrice Chéreau, Ridicule de Patrice Leconte, Vatel de Roland Joffé, Jean de La Fontaine de Daniel Vigne, Modern Love de Stéphane Kazandjian,Les adieux à la Reine de Benoit Jacquot…

Le château de Janvry

Le Château de Janvry fut construit entre 1600 et 1650 dans un style architectural typiquement Louis XIII.
Appartenant à la famille Reille, il est situé dans le parc naturel régional de la haute vallée de Chevreuse, dans le département de l’Essonne. Son théâtre, ses salons, sa cuisine du 17e, ses grandes chambres, ses chambres de bonne, ses cachots, ses granges et son parc ne se visitent pas mais sont disponibles à la location pour vos évènements.

Le château de Vigny

Au cœur du Vexin sur la commune de Vigny dans le Val d’Oise, le château de Vigny a été édifié à partir de 1504 et reconstruit à partir de 1867 dans son si caractéristique style troubadour.
Acquis en 2000 par un chef japonais fortuné, Shigetomo Mizumoto, qui y a monté son école de cuisine privée, le château aux douves remplies de carpes, aux tourelles à mâchicoulis et son parc de 20 hectares ne sont malheureusement plus ouverts au public.
Avant la série Versailles, le château était connu des cinéphiles pour avoir accueilli la plupart des scènes intérieures et extérieures du film Les Barbouzes mais aussi les tournages de Le capitaine FracasseMandrin, bandit gentilhommeOn a retrouvé la septième compagnieL’animal, et La fille de d’Artagnan.

Le château de Lésigny

Le château de Poncher, également appelé château de Lésigny, siège dans la commune du même nom en Seine et Marne. Edifié en 1508 sur les ruines d’un château fort médiéval, il dispose d’un parc boisé de 54 hectares, de plans d’eau avec douves et étangs, d’une grandiose cour d’une surface d’un hectare ainsi que de magnifiques terrasses. Il a accueilli au fil des siècles de grandes célébrités telles que Louis XIII et Anne d’Autriche, Catherine puis Marie de Médicis, le Maréchal de France Concini et son épouse la célèbre Léonora Dori dite la “Galigaï”, Charles de Luynes, Marie de Rohan, le duc de Bourbon-Penthièvre…Souvent malmené comme lors de La Fronde qui lui a fait perdre ses tours en 1794, le domaine est vendu comme bien national en 1798. En 1958, Jacques Lacroix, cofondateur du studio Harcourt, achète le domaine et mène pendant quinze ans de nombreux travaux de restauration : bâtiments, plafonds, charpente et couverture, jardins à la française, mais il le revend en 1973. Le mobilier est alors vendu aux enchères et dispersé. Après dix années d’abandon, et l’amputation de 15 hectares par le tracé de la francilienne, le parc et le château sont rachetés par M. Magnus. S’il n’est plus habité ni ouvert aux visiteurs, le domaine attend tout de même vos réceptions dans ses salons aux plafonds et cheminées peints d’époque Renaissance qui lui apportent un cachet exceptionnel. Avant la série Versailles, le château a notamment accueilli les tournages de Les Liaisons dangereuses de Stephen Frears et  L’armée du crime de Robert Guédiguian.

Le domaine de Rambouillet

Le célèbre domaine de Rambouillet, ancienne résidence royale devenue résidence présidentielle de 1896 à 2009, s’étend sur un parc de 100 hectares dans la forêt de Rambouillet. Remis en dotation au Centre des monuments nationaux en 2009, il est célèbre pour son château, dont la première construction remonte à 1345, qui a abrité au cours des siècles des personnages illustres qui l’ont progressivement transformé en une résidence d’agrément acquise par Louis XVI en 1783. L’ancien domaine royal est aujourd’hui un domaine possédant de très beaux décors intérieurs, comme ceux de la salle des marbres, les superbes boiseries en chêne du XVIIIe siècle ou des décors de style néo-pompéien du 1er Empire. Il est encadré d’un jardin à la française, de canaux et de six îles. Dans le jardin anglais, aménagé en 1772, vous pourrez également découvrir la chaumière aux coquillages qui fut réalisée par le duc de Penthièvre pour la princesse de Lamballe entre 1779 et 1780. Elle possède un des plus beaux décors de nacre et de coquillages d’Europe. À proximité, la laiterie de la reine, construite à la demande de Louis XVI pour Marie-Antoinette abritant le groupe sculpté “Almathée et la Nymphe”, de Pierre Julien., vous attend. Cette merveille du Patrimoine est accessible à la visite guidée, sous la conduite des agents d’accueil et de surveillance des monuments, tous les jours sauf le mardi, les jours fériés et lors des séjours officiels.

The Hunchback of Notre Dame

The Disney movie inspired by Victor Hugo’s book takes place in the Cathedral Notre Dame. Quasimodo lives in a Tower of the Cathedral, which you can actually visit if you go at the top of Notre-Dame.

  

The Cathedral Notre-Dame may not have changed, but Paris has. In the movie, you see Paris during the Middle Ages. Such houses cannot be found anymore near the Cathedral, but you can still see two of them in the Marais, a neighbourhood in the 3rd district of Paris.

The inside of the church seen in the movie is also realistic as you can see below.

Coco Chanel

20082 h 19 min
Overview

Italian-French-British TV film targeting the US audience, about the fashion icon Coco Chanel. The film begins with the fashion goddess (deftly played by Shirley MacLaine) in her twilight years, steeped in wealth and fame, still issuing game-changing designs and collections. From here the biopic looks backwards to the woman's upbringing in an orphanage, and traces her path to ubiquity as it winds through poverty, wars, doomed romances, and rather glamorous betrayals.

Coco Chanel

One of the only movie in which you can have an overview of Coco Chanel’s later life. Her most importants love stories, her creations and her success. I think this movie is one of the most historically accurate and with it we have an idea of how she decided to create the little black dress or how she choose the sample of Chanel No5 for exemple. Unfortunately this BBC tv movie was not filmed on location.

 

 

 

 

21 rue Cambon, Her very first Millinery shop :

At the begining she was making hats and became very popular thanks to this shop. We never found any picture showing the real shop, so this scene in Coco Chanel gives you an idea of what it could have looked like.

31 rue Cambon :

The movie wasn’t filmed on location, but in studios. So they had to recreate the rue Cambon and it is not a perfect success. Indeed the 31 rue Cambon doesn’t look exactly like that and it is not possible to see the Eiffel Tower from this point. Anyway, it is still interesting to have a preview of the construction of this famous shop and how was held the first catwalk Chanel shows.

Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky

20092 h 00 min
Overview

Paris 1913, Coco Chanel is infatuated with the rich and handsome Boy Capel, but she is also compelled by her work. Igor Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring is about to be performed. The revolutionary dissonances of Igor's work parallel Coco's radical ideas. She wants to democratize women's fashion; he wants to redefine musical taste. Coco attends the scandalous first performance of The Rite in a chic white dress. The music and ballet are criticized as too modern, too foreign. Coco is moved but Igor is inconsolable. Paris 1920, Coco is newly wealthy and successful but grief-stricken after Boy's death in a car crash. Igor, following the Russian Revolution is now a penniless refugee living in exile in Paris. Coco is introduced to Igor by Diaghilev, impresario of the Ballets Russes. The attraction between them is instant and electric. Coco invites Igor along with his wife - now sick with consumption - together with his four children and a menagerie of birds to stay at her new villa, Bel Respiro, in Garches.

Locations in Paris

On location

The movie is telling the story of Coco Chanel and Igor Stravinsky affair, which didn’t really happened. Chanel actually invited Stravinsky’s family in her country house in Garches (East of Paris). That’s why, most of the movie was actually filmed outside of Paris, but we founded some locations to show you.

Muséum national d’histoire naturelle : As far as we know, this museum is not a part of the real Coco Chanel life. But the Natural history museum is only 20 years and the area of Jardin des Plantes is one of the trendy place of Paris at the time.

    Le Divorce

The differences in legalities and cultural mores of French and Americans regarding sex, love, marriage, religion and family bonds are presented through the interactions of two families related by marriage.

American Isabel Walker heads to Paris to visit her half-sister, poet Roxeanne de Persand, who is early in the pregnancy of her second child. Isabel arrives to find that Roxy’s French husband, Charles-Henri de Persand, has just left Roxy, the sisters both eventually further learning that it is because he has fallen in love with another woman, who is herself married.

Roxy and Charles-Henri deal with their break-up, which Roxy does not want but must face the legal consequences of, including determining the ownership of what may be a valuable French painting that has been casually in the Walker family for years, but which Roxy has had in her possession since she got married. Meanwhile, Isabel begins to explore all that France has to offer, which includes concurrently embarking on sexual relationships with two men, including one with Charles-Henri’s older maternal uncle, the wealthy and well-appointed Edgar Cosset, who is himself already married and who is using the same play-book on her that he has on countless women before her.

As groups and individuals within the two families disagree and argue about certain issues they are facing, it does not necessarily affect other issues and relationships between the two families based on their priorities and those cultural and legal standards.
