More than eighty of the loveliest, most tranquil, and sometimes hidden places in Paris are celebrated in this charming guidebook.

Quiet Corners of Paris is a beautifully illustrated peek into eighty-one often overlooked, always beautiful, locales: hidden villas, winding lanes, little-known 19th-century passages, serene gardens, and cobblestone courtyards. Some of the places have breathtaking views, others are filled with historic and architectural details: collonades, stone archways, garden follies, boxwood mazes, ornamental statuary, stained glass, and Renaissance fountains. Some are secret enclaves that even the most sophisticated Parisians haven’t wandered into. The engaging text may recall the history of a locale, a literary quotation that brings the setting to life, a charming nearby cafe or shop, a legendary Parisian—and always the perfect time to visit each place to see it at its most atmospheric.
