    Paris – one to write home about

    The allure of Paris is irresistible. Some come enticed by Disney tales of princesses and love, others by the rich tapestry of history, woven through with threads of Bonaparte and skeins of bloody revolution. Some come to strike lines through bucket-list sights – Notre-Dame, the Eiffel Tower. Or to admire masterworks like the Venus de Milo and the Mona Lisa in the Louvre, the Musee d'Orsay, the Pompidou Centre. Others come to feel the pulse of French life, settling in Paris holiday rentals in boho Canal Saint-Martin or the criss-crossing blocks of the Latin Quarter. What's drawn you to the City of Light?

    A Parisian patchwork

    One of the real joys of Paris is just how different each district – or arrondissement – can be. The famous Champs-Elysees runs, with its swish shopping boutiques, through the heart of the metropolis, brushing past the grand Place de la Concorde, with its babbling fountains and wide plazas, as it goes. Meanwhile, over in the 10th arrondissement, little coffee shops and art galleries are spilling out onto the quays of the Canal Saint-Martin. The Latin Quarter throbs with students following in the footsteps of Voltaire, and the ethnic eateries of the 14th arrondissement keep churning out meze and tagine and more.

    Paris means knock-out museums

    Paris stakes a claim to some of the most enthralling museums on the planet. The Louvre is the stuff of superlatives. Where to look? At that carved Assyrian gate head, perhaps? At that mysterious Egyptian effigy? At the priceless Mona Lisa? Once your eyes are done darting through the exhibits there, hop to the Musee d'Orsay for more masterful pieces of impressionism. Degas, Manet, Monet – you name it, they're on the walls. Meanwhile, cutting-edge works are over in the Pompidou Centre, home to the largest modern art space in Europe.

    Paris doesn't get old

    There's not a single season when Paris holiday rentals don't look like an attractive prospect. Summers are gorgeous, with students sipping wine on the canals and munching on picnics in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower. The season runs from June to August, bringing warm days in the 20s and plenty of sun. Autumn – in October and November – is cooler and turns the parks a gorgeous colour. Winter, running from December to March, can be romantic. It's also the time to watch the rowdy Six Nations rugby in the massive Stade de France.

    Away from the Seine in Paris

    Paris's defining feature is the bending Seine River. It flows through the middle of the capital, cutting it in two. Parks and green spaces line its whole length, hosting some of the most enchanting Paris holiday rentals of all. That said, to really get a taste of wilder France, you'll need to head to the outskirts. The Bois de Boulogne is accessible in the west. Once a royal hunting ground, it's now a public reserve of boating lakes and lawns. The Forest of Senart is to the south, more primeval and untouched.
