Recent Ile-de-France reviews

  • Perfect location

    "The reviews already given are a pretty good reflection of what to expect. The apartment is as described. The location is fantastic, we walked just about everywhere but there is a Metro station Rambateau just around the corner and larger interconnecting stations Les Halles and Chatelet not far away either. Everything you could want to eat or drink is in the area and the atmosphere in the Marais is so alive. The apartment was very comfortable and homely, with books, dvd’s and music to chill out with if you wanted. The bed was comfortable and sometimes didn’t want to get up in the morning. I don’t think there was anything missing from a facilities point of view. There is a phone available for free domestic calls and free calls to overseas land lines which was handy for calling back home. This is much better than a hotel and cheaper too. Our host Louis is a charming man and made himself available for any help. He was able to recommend places to eat and places to go in the area, although there is no shortage of choices. Just a tip about getting to the apartment. We had booked through our airline a car which took us to the wrong place with a similar street name. Make sure your driver confirms the address you’re taken to is in the 4th arrondissement."

  • Perfect

    "I was skeptical, but my husband really wanted to stay here. I was wrong. Apartment is fantastic! High ceilings, seperate bedroom, washer and dryer, dishwasher, tons of seating with huge dining table, toilet is seperate bathroom from shower and sink area which was great! Huge windows open to neighborhood below, location can't be beat and great price make renting this apartment a no brainer. Next to locals market with butcher, cheese shop, wine shops and bakeries. Steps from metro. Within a mile of tons of tourist attractions. Right on the river. Amazing restaurants and bars below, even a Michelin star restaurant a mile away. Everything is so close to the apartment that we were able to walk to everything the entire week we were in Paris and were easily able to jump on metro when we were tired. Safe building, friendly tenants and Alexandre was great! Highly recommend!!!"

  • Lovely, Affordable, and Convenient

    "We had a wonderful stay in Philippe's apartment, which was stocked with thoughtful amenities (e.g., a computer with internet access in addition to the wifi, a hair dryer and straightener, tons of Paris guidebooks). The location was perfect for us, steps from the Bastille metro stop on line 1 which got us everywhere we wanted to go during our short trip. Also, we loved the street market which takes place just down the block on Thursdays and Sundays. Boulevard Beaumarchais is quite a busy street, but I'm still shocked at how effective the windows in the apartment were at blocking out noise. Philippe couldn't have been more helpful, responding quickly to my inquiries and meeting us at the apartment after midnight when we finally arrived from CDG. (Another VRBO host I contacted wanted to charge a late-arrival fee.)"

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.
