  • This issue invites you to play a little game of Mariepoly where you will find, I hope, some interesting stops. Our hotels are located in the heart of the two main centers of attraction in Paris, Saint-Germain-des Prés and Le Marais, the neighborhoods with the most museums, art galleries, monuments, restaurants and boutiques.

    May is rich in interesting events, such as the Paris tennis Open, Roland Garros, and the Jazz Festival in Saint-Germain-des-Prés. In fact there is always a sporting or cultural event taking place in Paris. Just ask at the front desk when you check in.

    We will be delighted to help you find your way or even get the right tickets for you.

    I would also like to take this opportunity to thank those of you who sent me such wonderful messages of appreciation after staying in our hotels. I can’t begin to tell you how important this is to the staff and me.

    Looking foward to seeing you again soon.

    May 19-31, 2016 Paris Jazz Festival

    In May 2016, the SAINT-GERMAIN-DES-PRÉS PARIS JAZZ FESTIVAL proposes unique, exceptional concerts in such prestigious locations as the Saint-Germain-des-Prés church, the Saint-Sulpice church, the Pantheon, and, of course, in the open air.

    What could be more appropriate than Saint-Germain-des-Prés for a jazz festival? After the Second World War, its cellars welcomed the greatest jazzmen, among others, Sydney Bechet, Miles Davis or Duke Elington.

  • But you can listen to jazz all year long not far from the hotel Dauphine Saint-Germain at Caveau de la Huchette (5 rue de la Huchette), a jazz club that has existed since 1948.

    Other cult jazz clubs, the Sunset, the Sunside, the Baiser Volé and the Duc des Lombards, are located rue des Lombards, in Les Halles, a 15-minute walk from either the hotel Dauphine Saint-Germain or the hotel Jeanne-d’Arc Le Marais.

  • FonzarelliINTERvIEw withArnaud Cacoub 1. When did you first have the idea to open a restaurant chain? The idea started when I met my associate, Igor, as we share a love for Italian gastronomy and pizza in particular.

    2. How do you decide on the locations of your restaurants? We look for locations where there is a constant flow of passers-by in areas that we like. And we want our restaurants not too be too far from one another.

    3. What is the concept behind the Fonzarelli chain? The lead product of Fonzarelli is the pizza al taglio, literally, by the cut, which is a type of pizza that was invented by Roman bakers in the 50s. Our dough, which is made with the best flours imported from Italy, extra virgin olive oil, and salt from Guérande, is left to rise for three days so that it becomes both light and tasty. We also have pasta and a variety of desserts on our menu. Everything of course is prepared from scratch on the premises, in full respect of the tradition, but with our personal touch. Fonzarelli also means a relaxed atmosphere in a pleasant surrounding spiced with the flair of Italy!

  • 5. What types of customers do they attract? We have all types of customers and we are particularly proud of it! Our goal is to offer quality products that everyone can afford.

    6. How do you build a loyal clientele? By providing a friendly, efficient service, and constant quality.

    7. What is your favorite, pizza or pasta? I like both, but my favorite is pizza.

    8. What do you like least about running a restaurant? Everything to do with technical and logistical problems: a water leak, a refrigerator that breaks down, a late delivery, etc…

    9. How do you see the future of Fonzarelli? We want to keep expanding. We are currently looking for spaces where we can open new restaurants.

    10. Hôtel Dauphine Saint-Germain in a few words: French-style elegance.

  • Roland Garros, Every year, tennis lovers crowd into Roland Garros in the last week of May and the first week of June for one of the four Grand Slam tournaments and the only one where tennis players face each other on clay courts. This sporting event, which attracts 400 000 spectators, owes its name to a French aviator who fought and died during the First World War.

    In 2015, the Swiss number two player, Stan Wawrinka, confounded all forecasts by beating (4-6/6-4/6-3/6-4) the

    tournament’s favorite, the Serb Novak Djokovic. The World number one player, Serena Williams, dominated Roland

    Garros for the third time beating the Czech Lucie Safarova (6-3, 6-7, 6-2), hence winning the 20th Grand Slam title in

    her career.

    Today, the tournament is fully deserving of its reputation as the world’s premier clay court event. Many of the current clay court specialists have been from Spain, including Majorcan left-hander Rafael Nadal, who has won no fewer than nine times in ten appearances on the Paris clay and is back in Roland Garros in 2016!

  • MARGARETZhang 1. How did you manage to start writing such a successful blog at

    such a young age as 16? I started my blog to provide me with a creative outlet that my

    school schedule, that was dominated by chemistry, physics and mathematics, was not giving me. It evolved from being just a

    collection of things I found creatively inspiring, to including my personal style and eventually my personal work in photography,

    styling, writing and creative direction. I never intended it to become anything beyond creative self-expression, and to be

    honest I don’t think it has. When people started to enjoy seeing and reading it, and following along, it was and is super flattering!

    2. When did you start to love photography? I started shooting at around age 12 on film while I

    was studying ballet (and spent a lot of time in dark rooms), then picked up digital photography when I

    was 17.

    3. You are a stylist, photographer, writer, creative director. Do you have some hidden

    talents? I keep pretty busy with all of the above!

    4. What are your favorite fashion brands? My favourite designers are Nicholas

    Ghesquière, Raf Simons, Mrs Prada and Alessandro Michele.

  • 7.What is your most precious piece of clothing? I have this ridiculous teal blue vintage skirt that I never wear, but it was my first real independent purchase at age 13. I saved up all $35 for it.

    8. What can you tell us about Paris Fashion Week? Parisian shows have the best art direction and show production of all the fashion capitals.

    9. Hotel Dauphine Saint-Germain in a few words: Home style, quaint, cosy, very French!

    5. What is the most adorable country you have visited? I fell in love with Morocco after spending two weeks travelling through the coastal towns, the Atlas mountains and the Sahara desert. I wouldn’t say it’s adorable, but endlessly fascinating and beautiful.

    6. Is it difficult to have such a strong work ethic and manage to communicate a lot on social me
