“Le Petit Trésor”…Our Hottest New Fractional Ownership Property!

In the midst of the lower Marais district (4th arrondissement) amid a flurry of restaurants and cafés, just steps from the Hôtel de Ville (Paris City Hall), lies a quiet tree-lined cobblestoned passage anchored by an ancient fountain, called “rue du Trésor.” Vehicle traffic is prohibited, so that pedestrians can stroll freely and soak in the beauty of this oasis of tranquility. Aptly named, this little gem of a passage is truly “un trésor” — “a treasure.”

This is the lowest priced fractional property on the market today! Shares are going fast…don’t be disappointed, contact us today!

For more information on this apartment plus pricing details and to see more photos visit /frenchproperty/fractional/tresor.html

Dear Parler Paris Reader,

“Wanna” dance? Now’s your chance.

Put on your dancing shoes and head to Place de la Bastille the night of July 13th for the “Bal Européen” where bands from all over the world will be helping you ‘kick it up’ European style. Starts at 8 p.m. Ends at midnight…but want to bet it lasts long after? For more information, visit

Prefer the beach? This is a real treat.

After five editions of “Sous la Plage,” there’s a new twist from the usual “Bals des Pompiers” taking to dance at the Parc André Citroën in the 15th. It all happens on July 13th from 2 p.m. to 2 a.m. Use Métro Javel or Balard and look for Port de Javel Bas. For more information, visit

Like the night? Light a fire.

The Pompiers de Paris are the kings of the night as they organize the traditional balls on both July 13th and 14th at 13 fire stations in Paris and 27 others just outside the city limits. Beginning at 9 p.m., expect to stay till the wee hours of the morning (4 a.m.) with these young and handsome “soldiers of fire” who wait all year to kiss the girls on this special occasion…so pucker up, ladies… For more information, download the list of balls at:

Fireworks-a-holic? Plan a picnic.

Pack your picnic and start out early and get your spot on the Champs de Mars for the annual fireworks at the Eiffel Tower. After the sun goes down about 10:45 p.m., the fanfare begins from the pont d’Iena to honor Québec’s 400 years with a special hommage to Maria Callas and Pavarotti. Every year, the show gets even more spectacular! For more information, visit

Love a parade? Start off your day.

The French Army makes its spectacular show down the most beautiful avenue in the world (the Champs-Elysées) on July 14th starting at 8:30 a.m. for a full display before the President of the Republic at Place de la Concorde with soldiers on foot, parachutists, and aeronautics gymnastics all morning long. For more information, visit

Are you prepped? Are you pepped? Be prepared to party Paris style…a la Bastille Day à Paree…

A la prochaine…
