Full description

Royal Village , in the heart of the Madeleine district, is an elegant Parisian passageway between 25 Rue Royale and 24 Rue Boissy d'Anglas, in the 8th arrondissement of Paris, 100 m from Place de la Concorde. This is the "Cité Berryer".

A renovated and transformed passageway

In the 1990s, the Cité Berryer was completely renovated by architect Jean-Jacques Ory. After 18 months of work, he restored the old charm and village spirit.
Its architectural heritage, listed as a Monument Historique, is superbly respected and enhanced. The result is renamed Village Royal.
It becomes the perfect setting for luxury brands, events and installations.

History at the Village Royal

Inaugurated in 1746, this passageway has been in existence for over 270 years.

In 1746, a passage was created along a building that housed Louis XIII's royal guard, the famous Mousquetaires. From the second half of the 18th century onwards, the 8th arrondissement became a fashionable district, as financiers and the haute bourgeoisie gradually abandoned the overcrowded Marais. The passageway that would later become the Village Royal arrived just in time.

The d'Aguesseau market moved in. Its stalls of greengrocers, butchers, fishmongers and other delicacies soon attracted Parisians from the four corners of the neighboring districts. Butchers set up shop on the left-hand side, while fishmongers, bakers and fruit growers took up residence on the right. Buildings were erected all around, and the area became a veritable village within the city.

A century later, the complex was named "cité Berryer". This is a tribute to the lawyer Pierre-Nicolas Berryer (1757-1841), a famous opponent of Napoleon III who left his mark on his era.

A village in the city, very well surrounded

A "village in the city" just a stone's throw from such Paris landmarks as the Madeleine Church, Place de la Concorde, Place Vendôme and the Tuileries Gardens.
In other words, a place very well surrounded...

In its early days, the place was very popular, but not necessarily built to last. It wasn't until the end of the 18th century, between 1760 and 1785, that buildings and houses were built.

The Royal Village today

The Village Royal is one of the most elegant passages in Paris. It's a place out of time, where there's always something interesting going on! Today, we appreciate its calm, just a few dozen meters from the bustling Rue Royale. Its beautiful boutiques are no match for those in neighboring streets. It's a calm and serene shopping session. A perfect complement to a shopping stroll in the neighboring Saint-Honoré district.

A little secretive, a little mysterious, this passageway is lined with opulent old buildings with planted terraces, giving it a vintage air,

In addition to the most prestigious names in fashion and haute couture, the passage is also home to one of the Groupe Costes restaurants, where customers enjoy a gourmet break between fittings.

In recent years, it has also become a venue for ephemeral, avant-garde exhibitions.
