This beautiful house is in Paris, it was built in 1925 and belongs to the nice couple Sylvie and Eric (bises à vous deux!) who decided to open their doors to the tourists visiting the City of Lights.
Sauntering on the streets of Paris is already magical and can be more interesting when you stay in a familiar place and can taste a typical french food. It’s like becoming a part of the Parisians daily life and to escape from sterile service of hotels.
My husband and I loved this experience. We stayed for a few days at Sylvie and Eric’s home and it was lovely. The day began with a delicious breakfast with a view of the beautiful garden. I recommend scheduling a dinner with Sylvie who will prepare a special dish. They also offer a shuttle service to the airport.

This week we are going to Rio de Janeiro, the wonderful city. Many visitors spend their time on the beautiful beaches, but there are other places worth visiting in Rio. The National Library is one of them. It’s an amazing neo-classical building constructed in 1910, considered for Unesco as the eighth largest library in the world and the largest in all of Latin America. Among its treasures is the first edition of “Os Lusíadas” (“The Lusiad”) by Luís de Camões that was brought to Brazil by the Portuguese Real Family in 1808. The address is Rio Branco avenue, 219.
This week’s stop will be in Portugal. I LOVE this country. The food, the architecture, the people, the natural beauty, the portuguese accent, in the end everything there is amazing for me. There is a bar in Lisbon that it was the most interesting place where I have been. It is the Chinese Pavilion. Maybe for many tourists this place can not be noticed because its frontispiece is an old house without luminous outdoors or something like that. There are many rooms with tables and armchairs and one lounge with pool tables. In all the rooms there are shelves with miniatures and ornamentation hang from the ceiling. It’s really nice! The address of the Chinese Pavilion is street D.Pedro V, 89 – Bairro Alto.
