  • Great Location!

    "We were very happy with the apartment and it's location. It was very close to all major tour busses, the river, food markets, gift shops, restaurants and of course the Eiffel Tower! It was easy to walk everywhere with two small children (3 and 6 years old). The kids loved the playgrounds and other activities around the Eiffel Tower. The neighborhood was very clean and safe. I would definetly stay again in this apartment on my next visit to Paris :) Thank you for everything Manuela and Dave! We had a great vacation :)"

  • Perfect stay in Paris!

    "My friend and I flew from England to CDG after which we chose to take the RER train from there to St Michel Notre Dame and then take the metro from there to La Motte-Picquet Grenelle. We really recommend to travel this way instead of a taxi as it only cost appx 11 euro each! (If you do need a taxi use G7, they were amazing and have an English speaking line!). We were then met by friendly Melanie who showed us around the studio and answered any questions we had. The studio was very clean, modern, neat and stylish. Lovely bathroom and kitchen. Comfy bed and duvet! Perfect for a girls holiday or couple getaway. The building is safe and the residents are friendly. We could not believe how close we were to everything! We took walks to the Eiffel Tower most days as it only took around 10 minutes! The metro station also has a couple of major lines which will take you to anywhere you need to go (we recommend buying a carnet of 10 tickets each at 13 euro for a 4 day stay). We loved Le Zinc down the road, lovely bar for drinks and lovely staff! Only problem for some people would be the noise from the frequent metro passing... it didn't bother us as we got used to it. Only thing I would suggest to Laetitia and Melanie is possibly some black out blinds or curtains on both windows? We felt a little exposed to the street below when in the kitchen at night. But of course, nothing major! Thanks for having us, Zoe."

  • Modest and attractive apartment (almost) in the Marais

    "The apartment was modest in size and attractively decorated. The immediate location is OK with cafes and boulanger's at hand. You are not _within_ the Marais here (but rather in the Republique). You are just at the western edge of the Marais so simply walk in east and you will find a different level of attractions. The location for taking different directions on Metro is excellent. We were lucky enough to have very warm weather, although opening the windows on this first floor apartment means substantial street noise. You can just hear the Metro rumble if you are sensitive to low sounds. The host handled the logistical arrangements well."

Ile-de-France Travel Tips

Plan Your Paris, France Trip with VRBO

It can be hard to describe the city of love when one has not been there walking along the streets filled with local markets, boutiques, and centuries of history. Paris, France is one destination in Europe that should not be missed due to budget constraints. It is quite possible to visit Paris without spending a great deal, with its numerous hostels, inexpensive Paris accommodations, and underground transportation. You could even stay in Paris villas if you use VRBO for your trip, as there is a range of rentals available for every budget and need. It is possible to find a little flat for a single traveler or even a whole villa for a family or group of 10 or more.

Top Destinations One Cannot Miss in Paris

Undoubtedly you have heard of the top three places you should not ignore while in Paris, France. Depending on the location of your Paris vacation rentals, it will be easy to visit the Louvre, Notre Dame, and Eiffel Tower. If you have but a day for each location, you may wish to start with the Louvre first. Their Egyptology section is one that is almost unrivalled, except for in Egypt itself. There is also the Mona Lisa which begs to be seen since much talk surrounds the stunning painting. Notre Dame can be toured in half a day but you should follow this up with an evening cruise along the Seine to see the gothic cathedral from all sides. You do not have to be a student of architecture to feel the power of the cathedral as you walk through its archways and around the stone tombs.

The Eiffel Tower presents you with another challenge of whether to venture to its full height or remain in the restaurant for a meal. If you venture out late at night, you should expect the Eiffel Tower to close, as it does not remain open much past 10 p.m.

Day Trips from the City of Love

Paris, while an exceptional city to tour, can offer you even more if you venture from its borders. There are numerous little day trips you can take to other cathedrals, towns, and lands from the city. Versailles is one such location which holds a great deal of history even for Paris. Versailles contains a grand ballroom, hall of mirrors, and gorgeous landscape. For many, the opulence of the summer vacation home of King Louis XIV is overstated. The Sun King had much to do with the design of the place but it was King Louis XVI who would marry Marie Antoinette and build a village for her. The village was fashioned to resemble her home but it is truly the gardens of Versailles that draw the most attention with its many fountains, hedges, and sculptures.

Also, from Paris, it is possible to visit another home of a famous Frenchman. This time you would head towards Claude Monet’s Giverny. As an impressionist, Monet used landscapes around him to create his works of art. In Giverny, you can visit the home that inspired many of his water lily paintings and murals.

Exploring Paris via the Underground

Paris is easiest to travel around via the underground system. There are numerous metro trains that will take you to the most important Parisian sites, including Notre Dame and the Louvre. Some of the trains will even take you toward the outskirts of the city and the numerous arrondissements that make up the city. If you are staying in Paris long, you should consider investing in a weekly metro pass as it is less expensive than daily passes. Be cautioned that the underground will not run to all locations past midnight, and you may end up walking if you visit clubs or restaurants late in the evening.

Parisian Dining is an Epicurean Experience

Paris is well known for its meals being rich in sauces and absolute delights. One is taught in Paris to enjoy one’s food rather than to consume a meal due to hunger. Taillevent is a historical landmark of Paris which opened in 1946. It is the number one place to visit for a full-scale meal. For those on a budget, Paris offers little Bistros and daily markets where you can purchase food to prepare your own meals at Paris villas. The owner of your Paris vacation rentals should be able to offer you suggestions of places to eat off the main path.
