Paris Party Time!! - Annual Bastille Day Celebrations and Firemen’s Balls -

Published on July 10, 2016 by Ralph and Karen

Every year after the fireworks and Bastille Day celebrations the fun continues at various Fire Stations around Paris.

Bastille Day is July 14, 2016. Celebrated in Paris with a parade along the Champs-Elysées http://bit.ly/1LWsh0Q and a grand fireworks show near the Eiffel Tower and the Trocadéro gardens http://bit.ly/29nUCEr .

Fireworks: Start at 11pm for about 35 min – subject to weather. Best place to watch is from the middle of the Champs de Mars just south of the tower - metro line 8, stop La Tour-Maubourg or Ecole Militaire and walk to where avenue du Général Margueritte meets the center on the Champs de Mars. If you go with a group, go early [3pm], take a large blanket to stake out your space – umbrella for shade, lots of food, water and wine in plastic bottle [glass not allowed], reading matter, games – it will be a long wait until 11pm! Plenty of food vendors and toilets within reach. Once the show starts be ready to leave. The police will direct the crowds to various metro stations – it will be a zoo but you’ll get a train eventually. A great alternative is to go up to Sacre Cœur – again you will have to be early to get best spot but it’s a easier location to reach & exit. http://bit.ly/29twL7J

Of course if you are really in the party mood then you will head to one of the many Bals des Pompiers [Fireman’s Ball]. These are parties at various fire stations around town on July 13 and 14 July see here for the list of locations http://bit.ly/1CWzOaN . The fun starts at 9 pm and lasts until about 4am. Be ready for champagne, music, dancing and a small ‘donation’ to enter. Ladies be prepared for a kiss or 2 from one or more of the friendly pompiers – they are some of the most fit and handsome men in France! Enjoy

Hello! We are Ralph and Karen, an Anglo-American couple who fell in love with Paris and France over 20 years ago. Work-related trips brought us here, but we kept coming back for holidays, then extended visits, and then… In 2005, we decided nothing was stopping us from buying a place of our own in Paris. Lots of research, learning, and many kilometers of sneaker-rubber later, we put our house in the United States on the market. It sold in 10 days, and we found our apartment in Montmartre two months later. After a massive, year-long renovation project and its many challenges, we hit our biggest bump yet. As it turned out, we had to stay based in the US after all. Our lovingly remodeled apartment in Paris became a place where we returned only for short visits. In 2008, we started renting to guests—travelers like we once were (we always preferred apartments over expensive, cramped hotels). And the rest, as they say, is history. Le Trésor de Montmartre has proved quite popular, to the extent that we have trouble finding a break in the booking calendar to stay there ourselves! In the midst of this, we found Nice. After several holidays in and around Nice, we thought, why not buy a pied-à-terre in the area? Despite the challenges involved in renovating from afar—which we knew very well at that point—we jumped in again in late 2010. After another renovation, another year, and hundreds more gray hairs between us, we added Le Trésor de Nice to our rental portfolio. A year so so later we picked up 3 other apartment to manage. We hope you find the properties inviting, and hope even more that you will come see them for yourselves! Please get in touch with questions, or to book your stay at one of our apartments. We’d be happy to share our insider knowledge of these places we love so much.
