Despite its shopping mall lookalike, the Saint-Émilion Courtyard is an immersion in the history of wine in Paris through its warehouses converted into shops and restaurants.

Rue Daguerre


At the same time popular, bourgeois, young and commercial, the rue Daguerre looks like its surroundings. A typically Parisian village atmosphere where you will find shops of all kinds.
