Our boutique LA MAISON DU MIEL was founded in 1898 by Charles Galland, so as to be able to sell honey from the different regions of France in Paris.In 1905, it moved to its present location rue Vignon.It's the oldest honey shop in Paris.It's now more than a hundred years old. The shop is charming and the shop windows are listed and are decorated in the original early 1900' stlyle.The interior is welcoming and decorated with taste.

The only place I encountered rude staff in Paris; the staff at first ignored me while I was trying to get a sample to decide on several honeys to buy-then told me to leave their samples alone. I spoke in French to be polite anyway to the sneering and greasy looking staff; there is no excuse to ever treat the... More

We have been here twice now with different asian family members and this staff has always been very kind to us. They have all you can imagine but then with added honey.

La maison du miel As a self proclaimed honey expert, I really wanted to come to this shop! It's a smaller sized shop and they only sell honey and some smaller things related to honey such as soap. I was not disappointed when I walked in, as the walls are lined with jar upon jar of honey, and are mainly... More

We love French honey, and used to get it from French friends who kept bees. Sadly, their bees are gone so we had to search elsewhere. I'm so glad I found this shop! They have a huge assortment of honeys and honey products. The shopkeeper was friendly and helpful and there were even small jars on sale. I bought a... More

I visited La Maison du Miel during Easter weekend 2014. There is a variety of honey from the regions of France. It is also a great place to buy honey in plastic containers which is perfect for packing to bring home.

Neighbourhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
