As a well travelled Brit I am almost embarrassed to say that I haven’t ever stayed in Paris! I’ve travelled around and through it numerous times en-route elsewhere in France or Europe… and always said “one day”!!
Well now the “one day” has finally arrived. We live just 3 hours south of Paris so we’ve decided our break this year will be a week in Paris in September! I’ve spent the morning studying available Airbnbs and researching the different “arrondissements” and now have way too many options We are going by train to avoid issues with the car and parking.
So we are looking for advice including your favorite areas to stay in with good public transport links. We are great street walkers and cyclists, love markets, cafes and quirky shops. We aren’t looking so much for info about the main tourist sites unless it’s an unusual perspective, but more the quirky little places people have found… markets, parks and walks.
Look forward to hearing your suggestions on the lead up to our time away that will also hopefully serve as a good resource for sitters in Paris!! Thanks all
