Designer handbags, designer heels, and designer dogs strut the boulevards of Madeleine – Vendome. This couture neighborhood does everything magnifique—perfection emanates from its exotic spice shops and bitter cappuccinos. Madeleine – Vendome’s maze of high-end streets encircle higher-end homes, where arched entryways open into cavernous foyers filled with light and air. Madeleine – Vendome may seem surreal, but review your receipts in the morning and you’ll know you were there.See places to stay Save this neighborhood
A Luxurious Neighborhood
The location is fantastic, with everything we needed and more- small supermarket and french pastries for the morning croissants :) also lots of restaurants and luxury shops."
