Situated in a suburb where local parisians live, this felt like a real french holiday rather than the holiday centre of central Paris.We had great fun practicing our "terrible" French at the local cafe, boulangerie and supermarket often lapsing inadvertently into our second language of Danish - only realising we were using the wrong words when faced some very confused looks. LOL
A comfortable suburb of Paris ideal for visiting Versaiile, the Gradens and the Eiffel Tower which were our main aims in the weekend away. The parisians were friendly, helpful and charming, we felt really at home.
The apartment is simple, light and airy and ideal for a place to return to to sleep. It had everything that we needed for 3 people. We found the road outside a little noisy at night but we do come from a very quiet countryside house. It is 3 minutes walk from the Metro, and with plenty of nice cafes and eating places close by. Parking in the nearby side streets was easy and inexpensive. Central Paris and all the tourist attractions were less than half an hour away from leaving the apartment.
Cyril and his father were very helpful - we got lost courtesy of google maps and a failing phone battery as we neared our destination. And we even survived the Peripherique ! But we made it and had a great time - merci beaucoup et au revoir Paris.
