When to go to Paris
A holiday in Paris is magical in all four seasons, yet spring are autumn are the best times to book your holiday apartment in Paris. The weather is mild during these months and you'll be greeted with fewer crowds. Immaculate gardens burst into bloom with tulips and daffodils in the spring, while splendid autumn foliage cloaks the city in a coat of many colours. As summer arrives, tourist hordes descend on the city while Parisians flock to the countryside. Be sure to reserve your holiday apartment in Paris early for summer travels, as accommodation books up quickly. Paris is a winter wonderland when trees lose their foliage, revealing the stately architecture that is otherwise obscured from view. Stay in a Paris apartment over the Christmas holidays to see the City of Light decked in the warm glow of holiday cheer.
Getting to and around Paris
Flights to Paris arrive at three airports: Aéroport d'Orly, Aéroport Roissy Charles de Gaulle, and Aéroport de Beauvais. Bus and train options are also popular, and the Eurostar rail lines offer fast and comfortable service between major European cities. You can reach your holiday accommodation in Paris easily with the extensive metro system, which is the fastest and most economical option. However, choose the site of your place wisely, as the city is best seen on foot to take in all of the intricate details in the opulent French capital. Because most of the major sights are located within a 5 km radius of the city centre, a leisurely stroll or bicycle ride (Vélib' is the city's bicycle hire scheme) will get you between the landmarks and your holiday apartment in Paris.
Home to some of the world's most iconic landmarks, Paris is as famous for its attractions as its cuisine and fashion. Tourists come to ogle the dancers of the Moulin Rouge as much as they do the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame and the Arc de Triomphe, and spend their days wandering the grand Avenue des Champs-Elysées or between the famous graves of the Père Lachaise Cemetery.
If you want to delve below its beautiful exterior and get a true feel for the city, then you should stay in a holiday apartment in Paris and rub shoulders with the locals for an authentic Parisian experience. Make like Sartre and de Beauvoir and philosophise over coffee at The Flore or Deux Magots in Saint Germain, step out with the fashionistas for a spot of boutique shopping in the Marais, or perhaps join the artists and romantics in Montmartre and Pigalle. Sometimes you needn't even leave your Paris house or apartment for a quintessential Paris experience. What could be more Parisian than starting your morning with coffee and a croissant on the private balcony of your very own holiday home? In Paris, life is simply sweeter.
Explore Paris' diverse districts, called arrondissements, and discover the unique flair and ambience that makes up the patchwork quilt that is Paris. The heart of Paris is Notre Dame - Ile de la Cite, an island in the middle of the Seine river. Gargoyles gaze down from lofty cathedral turrets onto a maze of tiny cobblestone streets. A Paris apartment near here provides easy access to attractive neighbourhoods and some of the city's chief attractions.
Le Marais is sometimes referred to as "Old Paris", where hidden courtyards, art galleries and chic boutiques form a delightful setting amidst well-kept and stately buildings. Originally home to Paris' once-thriving Jewish community, it has become an upscale locale for progressive residents. Le Marais is a perfect place to grab a table on a streetside cafe and watch the world roll by away from the hustle and bustle.
A holiday home in Paris Montmartre district will put you at the heart of the action. This idyllic hilltop neighbourhood is dominated by the Basilica of the Sacré Cœur, considered by many to be one of Paris' most beautiful churches. Long established as an artist hub, your holiday apartment in Paris may once have housed the likes of Renoir, Monet, Dali, Picasso and a long list of other avant garde artists. Still today, you'll find that creativity abounds in this free-spirited neighbourhood. With many trendy clubs and the iconic Moulin Rouge, you'll have plenty to do after nightfall.
One of the most popular neighbourhoods for a holiday apartment in Paris is the Quartier Latin. Packed with monuments and a number of universities, this area exudes youthful charm and quintessential Parisian joie de vivre. Rue Mouffetard is one of the most beloved streets in Paris. Lined with bakeries, cheese shops, butchers and eateries and with a market held every Sunday, it is a feast for all the senses. One of the benefits of a Paris apartment in Quartier Latin is inexpensive bars and restaurants geared toward student budgets. With all that youthful energy, the bustling nightlife will not disappoint, either.
Paris is famous for its food, and tasting your way through the city is a real treat. The taste of a buttery croissant is always best freshly-baked from the boulangerie, and there's bound to be one within a stone's throw from your holiday apartment in Paris. Be sure to check out our Paris Food Guide and Vegetarian Food Guide, which are jam packed with helpful hints and tips on the best places to experience local food in Paris.
