Time Out says
A superb charitable café, co-working and event space in a converted chapel – there are even hammocks if you need a nap.
In the beautiful 19th century chapel of a former convent, the charitable association Aurore has created a shelter, co-working space and ‘centre of collective innovation’. This means L’Archipel, an amazing project that encompasses a myriad of community and social projects. With a café and visiting food trucks, a massive book swap, workshops and an event space, you can come here for everything from brunch to a yoga session. There’s even a set of hammocks strung up in the alcoves for anyone who fancies a siesta. The atmosphere is truly calm and welcoming – perhaps why many students come here to concentrate on their revision.
All profits go to the Archipel’s crisis service for underprivileged mothers who are pregnant or supporting young children. To check out the calendar of events, click here (in French).
