The Lap of Luxury in Paris

It's easy to think that all of Paris is as glamorous as you see it in the movies or TV series. But that's not necessarily true. Paris neighborhoods are different and diverse, no two districts are exactly the same. There are those that are more bourgeoise and there are those that are more middle-class. Madeleine belongs to the former. Made up of beautiful homes, five-star establishments, and first-class hotspots, it's one of the more expensive and sophisticated Parisian areas. Amidst the cafes and brasseries, you're likely to see luxury stores such as Azzaro, Chanel, and Dior, and a few extravagant hotels too.
