AURÉLIE PONCE

General manager at Maison Villeroy and AHL insider Aurélie Ponce gives us the deets on what to do, see and eat around Paris’ Golden Triangle— the area between avenue Montaigne, avenue des Champs-Elysées and avenue George V.

What is your earliest memory of the 8th arrondissement? 
My earliest memory was of an interview for my first internship in a small hotel, with my mum waiting for me in a bar on the Champs Elysees!

How would you describe the 8th arrondissement to someone that’s never been? 
The perfect postcard of Paris— Place de la Concorde, Champs Elysees, La Seine, the Golden Triangle; designer shops, and luxury hotels…

Describe a perfect day in the 8th arrondissement?
Breakfast and a walk with my frenchie Lulu along the Seine, lunch at La Cour jardin in the Plaza Athénée, shopping in avenue Montaigne and a walk from Condorde to Arc de Triomphe, ending with an aperitif in a tourist place like chez Francis Place de l’Alma, so cliché but fun! Oh, and of course, dinner at Pavyllon, one of the restaurants of Michelin star chef Yannick Alleno near the Champs Elysées— which has great food and excellent service!
