Biographie de Magalie

Les Balades ont été fondées en 2005 par Magalie, esthète, passionnée d'Art et de Balades.  

My passions ? 

Art & classical ballet , and music. 

My first time in Paris? 

That was in 1996. I wanted absolutely to take a café at the Café de Flore. I came first to Paris for that beautiful philosophical café. Simone de Beauvoir and Jean Paul Sartre, Notre-Dame de Paris By Victor Hugo, Voltaire, The Three Musketeers. That was my idea of Paris. And of course Fashion & Gabrielle Chanel. And later I saw the Eiffel Tower. But for me, Paris was Saint-Germain-des-prés. And still today, when I do not work, I like to spend a few hours in Saint-Germain. 


The Marais ? This is my favorite area today. I love classical architecture, these beautiful mansions between courtyard and gardens. That's the most historical area of Paris. The museums are absolutely fabulous, from the Picasso Museum to the secrets museums like the Cognacq-Jay. 

What is a balade ? A balade is a walking tour, created with inspiration. That's for me an Art de Vivre. Paris is so beautiful. Every day you can admire a beautiful gothic church, a classical façade.That's also the art of taking time, by getting lost in the old streets of Paris©. 

My favorite balade? 

That's l'Heure Bleue du soir, the precise moment between night and day, when the streetlights are lighted on along the river Seine.
