Sunday afternoon in the city of Love. After a walk through the beautiful gardens you chance upon a puppet theatre and buy a ticket... After an hour you feel happy, entertained and perfectly in tune with this amazing city. A proper Parisien(ne). I cannot recommend...More

We watched Patachon and loved it so much we returned for Trois Petits Cochon. Aimed at French children, of course, but enjoyable for those who don’t speak French as well. This is a can’t-miss authentic bit of French children’s culture. It is reasonably priced, especially...More
