Once a thriving village, home to some of the most famous artists and poets of the 19th and 20th Century, ‘ Mars’ Mountain ’ offers a magnificent view over Paris and an intriguing insight into what was once the heart of French culture and socializing. Walking through quiet and ancient backstreets, sketchbooks at the ready, stop and draw in front of views that inspired artists such as Van Gogh and Maurice Utrillo, whether it be the stunning Sacré Coeur, the picturesque vinyards or the enigmatic social hideouts that once attracted some of the biggest names on the French artistic scene.


Opposite the bustling Ile de la Cité, birthplace of Paris, the Ile Saint-Louis is the perfect place to step back in time and draw in a peaceful and beautiful setting. Walking along the banks of the Seine, discover the history of the island and bridges connecting it to the outside world. Some of the most beautiful houses in Paris and impressive views of the Seine and Notre Dame can be found on the island making it the ideal location to bring out your artistic talent !

No trip to the left bank of Paris would be complete without a stroll in the beautiful LuxembourgGardens that surround the oppulent Luxembourg Palace. Home to ancient statues installed during the 17th Century, the gardens today are made up of immaculate lawns, budding flowers, impressive fountains and trees in all shapes and sizes. Only the noice of children playing with boats and ponies trotting through the leaves break the silence and, in this gentle and bohemian atmosphere, a budding artist will find all the inspiration they need !
