The Square d'Orléans, is a residential square in the 9th arrondissement of Paris, at 80, rue Taitbout.
The square was designed by the English architect Edward Cresy, and built in 1829 on land that had originally belonged to the family of the musician Daniel Auber. The original entry to the square was at 36, rue Saint-Lazare. The name 'Square d'Orléans' was probably a tribute to Louis Philippe of the Orléans family, who became King of France in 1830. .
The facades of the interior courtyard are decorated by porches with Ionic half-pillars, in a style that is analogous to that of the terraces of Regent's Park, London,, designed by John Nash in the 1820s.
The Square became a fashionable residence in which many celebrities of the July monarchy period took apartments, including Frédéric Chopin, George Sand, Marie Taglioni, Alexandre Dumas and Charles-Valentin Alkan.

  • Square publishes inside a private building in the Nouvelle Athénes. Historical Site where many characters have lived, such as Chopin, Georges Sans, Alexander Dumas. Charming Place like most of the neighborhood with its fountain and its two magnolias, its flower beds so well cared for always and its neoclassical facades of English style.
