- DescriptionMore than eighty of the loveliest, most tranquil, and sometimes hidden places in Paris are described and photographed in this charming guidebook. Quiet Corners of Paris is a beautifully illustrated peek into often overlooked, always beautiful, locales: hidden villas, winding lanes, little-kwn 19th-century passages, serene gardens, and cobblestone courtyards. Some of the places have breathtaking views, others are filled with historic and architectural details, from stone archways, garden follies, boxwood mazes, ornamental statuary, stained glass, and Renaissance fountains. Follow a stone path under a trellis of blossoms or wander through a gate to discover...
- Author BiographyJean-Christophe Napias lives in Paris. Author, editor, journalist, and translator, he has created with his wife a series of guides to Paris, Paris est a nous, which has more than seventy titles. He lives in the hip and lively Bastille neighborhood, and dreams of one day moving to a house with a large garden. Until then, he looks for tranquility and nature wherever he can. Christophe Lefebure, a graduate of the Institut d'Etudes Politiques de Paris with a master's degree in history, combines the qualities of a writer with those of a photographer. His principal subject of study is rural life, its customs, and traditions. For several years now, he has expanded his research to Paris. His first work, La France des lavoirs, received the Grand Prix Litteraire du Tourisme.
