This hidden place is amazing - just a typical French corner, with flowers, artists, great food, close to Les Merveilleux and to Bouddha (the painter's dog :) ). Enjoy!

It's a small square in old Lille (although one building on a corner is new) with some restaurants in it. Well proportioned buildings and spaces.

I love this pretty little square - fantastic for taking photos and some of the houses and apartments have lovely flowers and window boxes which add to the general appearance of the area. There are some cafes and bistros dotted around though I have not...More

I stumbled into this earliest square while wandering through Vieux Lille, and was struck by the serenity I found there. It isn't splashy, but has a quiet lovely dignity all its own. You can feel the history of the place, and enjoy the little galleries...More

Especially if it is sunny, walk down the lanes and enjoy a lunch outside in the many restaurants and bars
