  • Perfect

    "We stayed here for five nights and found it suited all our needs. We are a young couple and found it really reasonably priced with all the necessary amenities plus some nice little extras such as dishwasher, washer/dryer, hair dyer and straightener. The location was great, so many places to eat in the area and two grocery stores just a short walk away. The metro was a 2 minute walk and didn't take long to reach all the major tourist destinations. The property was very clean and well maintained. Unfortunately my partner was sick and bed bound for four of the days we were there but the bed was very comfortable and the wifi was fast. While it is a small studio apartment it is great for short term stays."

  • Super sweet! Highly recommend!

    "My sister and 13 year old daughter were super thrilled with this flat. Perfect location. Near metro, Seine, Louvre. Chic, modern furniture, good Wifi, tv and phone, Modern kitchenette, mini fridge, 2 stove burner, DW, coffee maker. Enough kitchen, but not too much. We didn't go to Paris to cook after all. Petite loft, up stairs (careful!) pull out couch downstairs, remarkable comfy. Nice linens. Plenty of decent towels. Clean, nice tile, petite bathroom and petite french shower. Beautiful windows and a nice view of the church. Very quiet street. Walking distance to all the big attractions. 2 velib bike rentals out front and down the street. Highly recommend these rental bikes! Amazing boulangerie on the block to the right. Amazing restaurant Le Petite Machon to the right. To the left there is another fab restaurant La Regalade. Nice Pharmacy on the block if you're into wonderful French skin care and hair care products. Catherine the manger is very helpful, friendly, available and just a lovely person. Payment was easy and secure. Very professional, clean legit and sweet. Highly recommend."

  • Good

    "We loved our stay here at the Welcome 2 France unit on rue Saint-Honore. We were familiar with Paris a little before but we had never been to this area and we fully enjoined it. The apartment was warm and comfortable. It was also very quiet for such a vibrant and lively area. You could not be more central located than in this apartment!"

  • Everything you need in an apartment and a great neighborhood

    "The Marais District was an excellent area to stay and the Beauce apartment was perfect for us. As other reviewers wrote, everything one needs was provided and exactly as described. We appreciated the comfortable bed with good linens, plentiful hot water, the nice wine and snacks on arrival, the free wi fi, and the iphone that helped us to negotiate the streets and answer questions we had. (Who built the Louvre? What Loire Valley tours are available?) The apartment looks out over a street without traffic and is steps away (20 yards maybe?) from a major street. When we closed the easy to work shutters outside the window the city traffic noise was minimal and contributed to a good night of sleep. We used the stairs to help burn those bread and cheese calories but the elevator worked well. The neighborhood had everything we needed from a complete grocery store around the corner to great restaurants to a myriad of specialty stores. And when touring some of the most popular sites, we looked forward to returning "home" to our charming neighborhood away from the multitude of tourists. Steve quickly answered email questions before and text messages during our stay. Elizabeth met us when we arrived. She was friendly and helpful answering questions that we didn't know we'd have and reminded us that she was available to answer queries during our stay. She took us out into the neighborhood and pointed out the best options for shopping, transportation and some historic venues. Throughout our stay we often remarked how happy we were to not be in a hotel. A sincere THANK YOU to our hosts. It was a wonderful stay and we hope to return some day."

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.
