A Paris Indian Summer

Leaves changing inside the Hotel Sully gardenIt is warm, it is beautiful. Hard to stay inside and not enjoy the wildly bright colors. The annual glory of color shines inside the courtyard of Hotel Sully, the Marais, when the leaves are changing.

Take a visit through the Paris Indian Summer video to see more of Hôtel de Béthune-Sully in the Marais, Jardin des Tuileries, Jardin des Plantes and the “Serres” (greenhouses).

Hotel Sully is undergoing renovations and will open to the public in the future.

This building is “in the heart of the Marais, one of the finest Louis XIII buildings in Paris and the residence of the family of Maximillien de Béthune, Duke of Sully, Henri IV’s famous minister…

Understanding the Hôtel de Béthune-Sully in Paris
– Sully’s residence. Building started on the mansion in 1625. It is near the Place Royale (now the Place des Vosges), a development launched by Henri IV and overseen by Maximilien de Béthune, Duke of Sully (1559-1641), who bought the residence in 1634. It stayed in his family until the middle of the 18th century. Madame de Sévigné and Voltaire both stayed here.
– A public building. It was bought by the State and its restoration, which started in the 1950s, launched the redevelopment of the entire district. Since 1967 the building has been the headquarters of the Centre des monuments nationaux. Since 2004 the State’s contemporary photo collection has been on display in the Jeu de Paume Museum.”– CMN Web site

This Web site and and its blog articles are for travelers to Paris who are looking for advice from someone who lives in Paris. These tips are "for Parisians at heart". Many people would like to visit, some can and some cannot - so I will help you enjoy a glimpse of the city and its surroundings. This project has been ongoing since 2002. Prior to living in Paris (since 1992) my European history began in the early 70s with three years in Wiesbaden, Germany. My next foray onto the Continent was in the mid-80s after graduation from the University of Florida (where I met Erik): traveling around Europe and UK with my friend, Margie, hitchhiking around and working in Ireland. After living and working as a journalist in Sweden for four years, traveling on boats, the Trans-Siberian Railway, local trains and planes took Erik and I around the world. I began working as a flight attendant in 1990 for American Airlines, based in Chicago. We moved to Paris, France in 1992 where I commuted between Paris and Chicago for my flight attendant/stewardess job. Finally my inner voice said "Stop!" and I left American Airlines six weeks shy of 20 years January 1, 2010. Now that is over and I am back working as a journalist and photographer full time on Colleensparis.com - My videos are posted on YouTube on the colleensparis youtube channel. and I am active in Toastmasters 75. Enjoy!
