Back to France: First Stop, Montmartre

The visit back to the US to see family and friends is done. Now it’s on to fun and games in France. First stop: Visit Montmartre.

This will be my first stay in Montmartre, the playground of Parisian artists and famous bohemians. On other Paris stays, I’ve only been to Montmartre to see the Sacre Coeur and to stroll in the area above the cathedral on Sundays when artists’ work is for show and sale.

Visit Montmartre

I chose a boutique hotel in Montmartre because it’s close to Cook’n With Class Paris. I’m joining the chef and other students at the cooking school for a market day class on Sunday. How much fun is that?!

On Monday, I’m off by train to Gif-sur-Yvette in the Chevreuse Valley, southwest of Paris. I’m staying and playing at Le Moulin de la Tuileries, the county retreat of the former Duke of Windsor and Wallace Simpson.

Yes, the Barefoot Blogger will be walking in the footsteps of royalty!

Before I give away too many secrets, I hope you’ll stay tuned. It promises to be another great adventure!
