Passionate about Paris...

Paris the paragon of style, Europe's city of glamour. It is at once deeply traditional and famously cosmopolitan. It is such contrasts that make Paris so special: the winding streets of the Quartier Latin contrast to the monumental avenues; the street markets for food in Paris and the old-fashioned pedestrian arcades juxtapose the modernity of its shops and restaurants.

At times, Paris can feel almost inhumanly magnificent, however for those seeking holiday rentals Paris seduces with the arrogance of its monuments, the industrial chic of the Eiffel Tower and the almost spiritual glasswork of the Louvre pyramid. Paris is equally human, exquisite, secretive nooks hide behind the Grands Boulevards, the city has very definitive communities at the core of which are the games of boules, local boulangerie and of course the Parisian café. Let's not forget food in Paris. It's no wonder the city has always drawn so many and from so far seeking the utmost valentines hotel break. Even as the city's culture is immigrant communities, even as extravagant new buildings pop up, as Paris vacation rentals apartments dominate historical aristocratic abodes, many of the city's streets, cafés and restaurants remain remarkably, defiantly unchanged.

Paris is a wonderful city for aimless wandering. Laid-back neighbourhoods like the vibrant Marais, chic St-Germain and romantic Montmartre are ideal for street-browsing, shopping and café-sitting. The city's lack of open space is redeemed by beautiful formal gardens, pathways and pavements that run alongside the Seine, and by endless hidden or unexpected havens. If you are looking for a last minute apartment Paris is not therefore always going to come up with the goods. The same applies to Roland Garros reservations as the tournament is booked up months in advance.

For someone just visiting for a couple of days, seeking out Paris holiday apartments is easy to explore. The centre is small -white and blue street signs will help you.

Those who return from the French capital having sampled the food in Paris, museums and shops, are often overcome with nostalgia. Paris is unique because it is elegant and indecent. Paris is history and modernism and it does not fail to meet the expectations of all. There is something for everyone in Paris, holiday apartments Paris equally cater to all budgets. The city will leave your with memories that are a true breath of fresh air. Try Paris vacation rentals rather than hotels and you will live the city like a local. At the end of the day, that is the best way to get the most out of this wonderful city.
