Ce vei face

For hundreds of years the Marais was the preferred residence of the French nobility. In the 17th century they built magnificent townhouses around the Place Royale (today’s Place des Vosges), some of which are still in existence.

The Place des Vosges also saw the birth of Madame de Sévigné, a leading figure of her day whose literary work is a body of letters that provide a window into aristocratic and court life in the 18th century. She was friends with Madame de La Fayette, a literary pioneer. Later Victor Hugo was to live a few steps away. Colette would call the square home too.

Because of its central place in both the aristocratic and literary past, we’ll begin right on the Place des Vosges. Over a coffee we’ll read some selected texts of the authors who inhabited the neighbourhood.

We’ll then set out on foot to explore the environs with occasional readings to supplement our experience.

Originally from the US, I have lived in Paris since 2013 and have been leading tours on Airbnb since 2017. I am the founder of a luxury travel agency called Vendôme Circle that provides unique experiences focusing on French history, culture and art de vivre.

I am also currently writing a dissertation on the philosophy of Jean-Paul Sartre at the Sorbonne from which university I received a Master's in Contemporary Philosophy with a thesis on Sartre's The Words.

I have a great passion for France's history and writers and I love sharing it with visitors to Paris who are curious to discover the richness of its culture. I enjoy getting to know my guests and learning from them, too. I look forward to meeting you soon!

This is a wonderful trip. Douglas, who is bilingual, takes you on a tour through some parts of the Marais that you will not know, and reads from literary masters and mistresses at the places where they lived. Translating from the French, you are immediately transported into the world of 17th century salons, women of letters and the 19th century Romantic era. Douglas is very friendly and extremely well informed about his area; he is an academic and expert. He also went over the time limit so we had a really full tour. Recommended!
