Paris is known around the world as one of the most romantic cities, where the changing lights of the evening reveal new features of this beautiful, culture rich city. The Paris area is a massively inspiring place to take a holiday rental, filling all your senses with fantastic monuments, art, music and delightful gastronomy selected from across the country.
Culture will of course be a huge feature of any Paris holiday, what ever time of year you decide to take accommodation in Paris or the surrounding area. The brutal history of the region, from the French Revolution to the German occupation has created a city so rich in national monuments, many of which are now filled with artistic treasures like the da Vinci’s Mona Lisa. A holiday apartment in Paris or the surrounding countryside is the perfect base for exploring the 180 museums which adorn the streets of the city. The Musee Louvre and the Musee d’Orsay are the most famous of the Parisian museums, but there are plenty of treasures to be discovered. Tours of Paris, on foot, bicycle and boat, are extremely worth while when staying in Paris accommodation, as they will often manage to take in more of the biggest attractions than you would be able to do alone, visiting the Arc de Triomphe, Eiffel Tower, Basilique Sacre Coeur, Cathedral of Notre Damn and the Arc de la Defence.
You do not have to see all the sights and cultural hotspots in Paris to really enjoy a holiday in Paris. Visitors who return to their self catering Paris accommodation every year return for the glorious atmosphere, delightful restaurants, world class shopping and spectacular evening entertainment, from theatre to concerts.
Disneyland Paris is a huge draw for families to an apartment in the Paris area. For many children, a holiday to Disneyland Paris is a dream come true, and with so much to see and do, taking Paris accommodation within reach of Disneyland isn’t too much of a chore for parents either!

Yvelines is another tiny department which surrounds Paris, which has been the haunt of artist’s and writers for many centuries. Taking accommodation in the Paris area in Yvelines gives you access to a range of museums, parks, palaces and dramatic chateaux.
