Welcome 2 France Newsletter November 2016
Hello !

The air is crisp and the changing color of the leaves, means that Paris is full of golds, browns, reds and greens. November is a truly beautiful time to visit the city. It's probably one of the quietest months in the year, in terms of tourism. It's almost like the calm before the storm as Parisians hold their breath and wait for Christmas to arrive.

This Month's Featured Apartments

Trocadero - Poincaré 3 bedrooms II

This luxurious 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom apartment is located along Avenue Raymond Poincare in the 16th district near Trocadero. The style of decor is a contemporary minimal approach. A modern feel to an historic building.

Champs Elysées - Lesueur

This luminous property is a spacious 105m2 2 bedroom 2 bathroom located along Rue Lesueur in the 16th district.Located on the 5th French floor (with elevator in the building), this beautiful abode lets in a lot of natural light and is very quiet.

Trocadero - Poincaré 2 bedrooms

The unique apartment offers stunning views of the most famous landmark in the world, the Eiffel Tower. With two bedrooms and two bathrooms this property is suitable for 2 or 4 people. Complete with all modern fittings and a lot of natural sunlight.

The Paris Autumn Festival

At any one time in Paris, there are perhaps 10 different festivals taking place. So with that in mind, its difficult to figure out exactly what to do or even which one to write about. The Paris Autumn Festival is a great choice. It runs over several months and consists of dance, theater, music and art.

The range of art forms is spread over 46 locations across Paris and even the suburbs. Starting in 1972, the entire festival attracts over 100 thousand people and is funded by the French cultural ministry. November promises to be a packed month and while it is hard to select just one event... we've done just that.

Apichatpong Weerasethakul's Fever Room is an intimate blend of cinema and live performance. It is the first time this production has come to Paris and its on from November 5th to November 13th. Unique and deeply moving, it is so much more than just cinema.

Stay Warm but Look Cool

One of the main reasons to visit Paris is, of course, the cuisine. With the weather getting colder and colder, you need to find delicious things to keep you warm and snug. Last month our newsletter focused on hot winter food so this month we decided to focus on hot winter drinks. We went searching the streets of Paris all month to find the best hot drinks in the city. These options are guaranteed to keep you warm, taste great and maybe, depending on your mood, get the party started.

Irish Coffee

OK, its definitely not from Paris but who cares. It's great. This delicious mix of cream, coffee and whiskey is the prefect mix of beverage and dessert and its sure to give you the caffeine kick you need. Try the coffee in McBrides Irish bar in the 1st district.

Red Velvet Hot Chocolate

Stay calm! Yes, its real and probably the best thing in the world. Paris is home to probably the tastiest hot chocolate in the world. But with the added bonus of the red velvet cake taste, it's just heaven in a cup. Not easy to find, but try Angelina, also in the 1st district.

Hot Toddy

Perhaps the most famous hot alcoholic drink in the world. Sometimes used to cure flu like symptoms, the French have managed to glam up in this traditional drink with some Calvados - a French apple brandy. The best place to try this is Frenchie Bar à Vins in the 2nd district.

Oscar Wilde Exhibition

The first exhibition of its kind in Paris, for this months cultural focus, we decided to focus on the Oscar Wilde exhibition. The exhibition on the life and works of the Irish writer has been opened for almost a month and is still attracting large crowds.

Located in the Petit Palais in the 8th district, the event costs 10 euros for adults and is open everyday of the week. The exhibition comprises of letters, manuscripts and photos with some "never before seen items" from collections in Ireland, London and even the U.S.

If hot drinks or staying inside in theaters and exhibitions doesn't keep you warm maybe dancing will. There is a lot of cool gigs happening in November across Paris but perhaps the most interesting and indeed, the most important is the Festival les inRocks. It's organised by Les Inrockuptibles which is basically the bible of indie music in France.

The event runs from November 18 - 21 in various locations across Paris. It's been going strong for over 35 years and managed to completely avoid the commercialism of other festivals. Offering the best in alternative music from France and aboard, make sure you look out for "Lets Eat Grandma".
