Artifact: Paris

2.22.2013

By Andrew Belonsky

This artifact is an entire village.

While there were a few items from Paris we wanted to share, such the artwork of Romaine Brooks, a bisexual artist whose work resembles that of her temporal, aesthetic and philosophical contemporary Claude Cahun, but ultimately we decided on an entire village, La Roche-Guyon.

In addition to romping around the historic streets and exploring the 12th Century castle, including a dungeon built into the domineering cliff that looms above this village about an hour north of Paris, visitors can hike through the Arboretum de La Roche-Guyon, a free-of-charge refuge with trees from all over France.

Bring a picnic for your excursion to prove once and for all that being provincial can indeed be quite chic.
