The Parc Monceau is surrounded by several streets and avenues of apartment buildings and private mansions, which are part of the typical Haussmann neighborhood of the capital. In this quiet and bourgeois district of the Right Bank of Paris, where you can glide along streets of unified facades, sometimes you have to look up and pay attention to the windows, which give their true character to these constructions made of “pierre de taille”.

Amidst frames more or less richly decorated with furnished balconies or rails, moldings or sculptures, and inevitable geranium plants… sometimes, you have a chance to see the head of a curious dreamer who lingers here during a cigarette break or just watching passersby down below.
