  • Wonderful time in Paris

    "We had a wonderful time at Jean Pierre´s studio in our trip to Paris, last april. The studio is very charming, just like the photos show. It is small (as the photos also show…) but very functional. All equipments were there - as shown - and working well (the TV didn´t work at the beginning, but much more due to my lack of competence…). We were very well received by Jean Pierre and also by his friends Ken and Anne. Also, the studio is located in one of the most beautiful areas of Paris – the 5th arrondissement, close to Notre Dame, Pantheon, Gardens of Luxembourg, the Seine, the charming Mouffetard Street, Shakespeare and Company, even the Louvre… In few words, it´s definitely a place to return!"

  • big big one bedroom

    "Thank you welcome to France for educating me: I didn't think big one bedroom apartments existed in Paris but apparently they do. And I have been coming to Paris for years! Anyway, this apartment was huge and immensely comfortable, minutes on foot from le Louvre and le marais, what more could we ask for. The welcome to France representative was courteous and helpful. All In all a ten out of ten!"

  • Exceptional Paris left bank apartment

    "This wonderful left bank apartment was our "home" for the past 2 weeks. It is in a terrific residential neighborhood, with a wealth of commercial attractions--cafés, restaurants, stores, food and gift items, and local color. It is very convenient to several bus and train lines. The apartment itself is beautiful and extremely comfortable. The multiple skylight windows make for a breathtaking experience. The main bedroom is spacious and very comfortable. The second bedroom is a loft with great windows. The 2 bathrooms make for a very convenient family situation. The owner has gone out of her way to make this a very live able and memorable vacation. We strongly recommend it to anyone wishing a wonderful Paris vacation. Alan and Robin Peck"

  • Gorgeous Garden Apartment Almost Too Good To Be True!

    "My family and I checked in, including 2 teens and an 8 year old, on August 16, and we were blown away by how perfect the location was, how spacious and well-equipped the apartment is, the amazing huge private garden, and Alina’s beautiful art and furniture. We did not even mind that we arrived as the last guests were still in the throws of packing and leaving (turned out we are from the same home town in the U.S.). We left our bags and took a boat tour on the Seine to kill a few hours. We still did not mind that no one knew the apartment needed to be cleaned or the linens changed. Willie was sweet and accommodating on the phone. I found beautiful, ultra-soft, cotton linens for all the beds and remade them happily, imagining this was my lovely apartment! The cleaning crew came the next day, so there was really no issue. It would have been nice if the washer had been working, but we successfully washed key items in the kitchen sink and used the dryer to finish the laundry. We also appreciated finding some Coke, coffee, butter, etc. in the fridge, ample cleaning supplies, and TP, and we tried to leave a decent amount of various useful items when we left…a nice system! I can’t imagine staying anywhere else in Paris now, and I’m afraid my kids will have a tough time at youth hostels in the future knowing how wonderful it was to live like a local in the perfect location in Paris. The shops, the bakery, the “smelly cheese shop” with the amazing ham, the gelato and Berthillion made our street the place to be and live like a Parisian. The added bonus of passing Notre Dame almost every time we wandered out and the easy-access Metro stations all around perfected the experience. We will be back, Alina, and, hopefully, for more than 5 nights next time. Many thanks for sharing such a lovely apartment."

Paris Travel Tips

Paris, the City of Lights and love, is a top vacation spot - and for good reason. The city is filled with amazing culture, from art galleries, museums, to gardens, parks, cuisine and everything in between.

No matter which season you choose to visit Paris, it will offer exquisite images of architecture, fashion, food, people and landscapes. Situated along the River Seine, this city provides the perfect getaway location for a romantic trip for two, a fun family adventure or a solo journey to relax and unwind.

Historic Paris landmarks

Eiffel Tower: A trip to Paris wouldn’t be complete with a visit to Le Tour Eiffel. It was originally built in 1889 for the World Exhibition to commemorate the French Revolution in 1789. It was only supposed to stand during the exhibition, but it was left for travelers to enjoy through the years and has becomes synonymous with the city itself. The Eiffel Tower features three levels for visitors. The first two have restaurants for visitors. From each level, you can take in breathtaking 360-degree views of the city and the River Seine.

Louvre: This art museum is one of the largest and most prominent in all the world. The Louvre, located in the 1st arrondissement, houses some of the most important works of art to ever be created including Leonardo Da Vinci’s "Mona Lisa," the "Venus di Milo," the "Bike of Samothrake" and Michelangelo’s "Dying Slave.” The museum’s first collection were the private acquisitions of King Francis I in the 16th century. Since then, the Louvre has expanded and now features over one million works of art, 35,000 of which are displayed for the public throughout three wings (Denon, Sully and Richelieu) ranging in time periods from Antiquity to the 19th century. Enter through the Louvre Pyramid or the Carrousel du Louvre and experience one of the most cultural hubs in the world.

Notre Dame Cathedral: Whether or not you’re a religious person, Notre Dame Cathedral is a beautiful Parisian landmark worthy of a visit. Located on the Île de la Cité in the 4th arrondissement, the Notre Dame de Paris, which translates into “our lady of Paris” in French, is a Gothic cathedral that serves as the the city's Catholic archdiocese. Notre Dame is considered one of the finest examples of Gothic architecture and features flying buttresses, stained glass windows and menacing gargoyles. Notre Dame still holds masses, but also serves as a favorite tourist destination for all who come to Paris.

Jardin du Luxembourg: Originally owned by the Duke of Luxemburg who gave the garden its name, this piece of land stretches about 55 acres and is laid out in an Italian style per Marie De Medici, who purchased the land in 1612. In the 19th century, the garden was opened to the public and redesigned in a French style while still preserving the original layout. At the garden’s center rests the Grand Bassin, an octagonal pond where children can rent small boats to float around. The Jardin du Luxembourg also features pony rides, a puppet theater and a merry-go-round to keep the kids entertained. For the adults, the garden provides exceptional scenic views and the perfect backdrop for an afternoon picnic. The garden is also home to two famous fountains: Fountaine Medicis and Jardins de l’Observatoire.

Other Paris Must-sees

Champs-Élysées: The Avenue des Champs-Élysées is a Parisian street full of luxury, haute couture shops, cinemas, cafes and is considered of the the most famous roads in the world. The Champs-Élysées stretches from the Place de Charles de Gaulle, the location of the Arc de Triomphe, to the Place de la Concorde. For the height of Parisian culture, wander up and down the sidewalks of this famous promenade to experience all of the sights and sounds that make Paris one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

Moulin Rouge: Located in the hilly neighborhood of Montmarte, the Moulin Rouge, “red mill,” opened in 1889 as a new music hall. It quickly became an infamous dance hall that made the Can-Can famous and was one of the first venues in the city to use electricity. The Moulin Rouge explored the scandalous side of life and shocked many at the time. Today, the Moulin Rouge is still a popular place to visit while exploring Montmarte. The Can-Can has been toned down but is still the signature dance of the place. Visitors are sure to be entertained by high kicks and amazing acrobatics. Shows feature more than 100 performers dressed in extravagant costumes, but are still not suitable for young eyes.

Opéra de Paris Garnier: Famously known as the setting for Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical "The Phantom of the Opera," the Paris Opera House, or the Opéra de Paris Garnier, can be found in the 2nd arrondissement. Construction began in 1862, but wasn’t finished until 1875 because a small lake was discovered and still exists under the opera house. Currently, the building is used mainly for ballet performances and was renamed the Palais Opera. The Opéra de Paris Garnier boasts stunning architecture, with a grand marble staircase and foyer featuring a mosaic ceiling and numerous chandeliers.
