Recent Paris reviews

  • Great location, amenities and on-site services

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our eleven-day stay at this lovely apartment. It had an ideal location, many apartment amenities and excellent on-site services. Located in the 3rd Arrondissement, in a quiet Marais neighborhood within walking distance to attractions like Notre Dame, Hotel de Ville and Marche des Enfants Rouge, surrounded by restaurants and close to groceries and small specialty shopping. Getting around was easy being close to the Metro, Seine BatoBus and very reasonable priced taxi rides. Our amenities included top quality appliances with helpful easy to understand instructions, attractive modern furnishings, English channel cable TV and rooftop views of Paris. The on-site services came with a lobby concierge, multi-layered building security, modern elevator and the friendly professional assistance of Patrick our apartment contact. We strongly recommend this apartment."

  • Paris as a local

    "I go to Paris twice a year on business but hadn't been there for vacation in quite some time. This was a special trip as I brought my niece for her 1st trip to Paris. To say the location is central is an understatement! The apartment happens to be in one of my favorite "districts". This felt like a real home, very large, albeit modestly furnished ( not a criticism just a fact) and clean! This is a huge factor being a bit of a neat freak. The shops all within walking & minutes away from the apartment provided us with everything we needed cheese,bread, wine, fruit & chocolates. Falafel at Chez Marianne... The best. Nothing but praise for this apartment. Regarding the stairs if you are able bodied these should not be an issue. Overall a great apartment with tons to offer those who want to be fully immersed in the experience."

  • Great Location and the Feeling of Home

    "We came to Paris with our daughter, son in law and 3 month old granddaughter. It was a very special Christmas vacation for us and we planned a long time in advance so that we would have just the right location and a comfortable place to stay for two weeks. We were not disappointed. Marion's apartment is in a wonderful location very close to Saint Paul Metro and an easy walk to Notre Dame. There are small grocery stores nearby and a great bakery across the street. We made a baguette run each morning. Along with espresso from Marion's handy machine this got us off to a great start each day. The apartment is great for two couples and worked well with the baby. It is a centuries old building so you do hear some street noise. If you are a light sleeper I would recommend bringing earplugs. They worked perfectly for me. This is a very charming apartment and feels very much like home at the end of a day of discovering Paris's treasures ( and there are many). The city was lit up for Christmas and we enjoyed the Christmas markets in several areas but especially along the Champs Elysees and Place de la Concord. The Holocaust, Shoah, Museum is very close and we were all very moved and impressed by the incredible displays there. The Marais is a lively and fun area to investigate. Nearby Place des Vosges is a lovely little quiet oasis with art shops and jewelry stores. We had an unfortunate incident when our daughter was stricken with a kidney stone the day we were to fly home. Marion was very understanding and made it possible to stay in the apartment 4 days longer. This took a little rearranging on her part and we were most grateful My daughter was able to get medical care at the Hotel Dieu near Notre Dame. We are most grateful for Marion's understanding and kindness. I would highly recommend this apartment as a place to stay for 2 couples or a family. Do be aware that there are two flights of stairs to the apartment so it is not suitable for anyone in a wheelchair. It is good value and a great "home away from home" in central Paris."

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.
