Your stay in a B&B Paris
Discover the city of love from a charming B&B Paris, strolling from the Arc de Triomphe through Concorde to the grand Notre Dame. Romance infuses the city, from the summery Paris Plage to the sparkling Champs-Élysées during Christmas. Enjoy the chic ambience and a never-ending fashion parade of passers-by while sipping coffee on a cosy café terrace.
For tranquillity amid grand tree-lined avenues and green spaces, book a bed and breakfast in the serene 16th, 7th, and 8th arrondissements. Retreat to these peaceful havens after a bustling day in the metropolis. The 17th arrondissement offers an authentic Parisian experience, less touristy but rich in local charm, boutique shopping streets, and the delightful Parc Monceau. Consider Saint-Germain-des-Prés (6th arrondissement) and the Latin Quarter (5th arrondissement) for a B&B in Paris, where culture thrives with art galleries, literary cafés, cinemas, and theatres tucked away in charming cobbled streets.
You can't think of Paris without thinking of the iconic Eiffel Tower. From its observation platforms, you'll have a breathtaking view of the capital. Book from your B&B Paris in advance, as, along with the Louvre museum, it is one of the most visited monuments in the world. From the Arc de Triomphe, walk down the Champs-Élysées and end your promenade with a visit to the superb Musée des Arts et Civilisations du quai Branly, designed by the great architect Jean Nouvel. The Gothic architectural masterpiece Notre Dame de Paris was badly damaged in 2019. It will take many years to renovate, but its unique silhouette can still be admired from the quays of the Seine and is no less impressive. If you book a bed and breakfast in Paris in the centre, you can visit most monuments and museums on foot.
Take the panoramic escalators at the Centre Georges-Pompidou. Once you reach the top, you can admire the magnificent rooftops of Paris and spot all the famous landmarks. After the excitement, stroll through the narrow streets of Le Marais, one of the trendiest neighbourhoods for shopping with its charming little boutiques. Head up Rue des Francs Bourgeois towards one of the most beautiful squares in Paris: Place des Vosges. Finish your evening in Bastille, where you'll have plenty of choices for bars and restaurants.
This neighbourhood is full of picturesque and charming places to visit. It's ideal for serving as the base for your B&B in Paris. You’ll already have a lovely view of the Sacré-Cœur at the foot of Montmartre Hill. Visit the Marché Saint-Pierre, a paradise for seamstresses, and explore the Halle Saint-Pierre, dedicated to raw and singular art. Take the funicular (or climb the stairs if you fancy a challenge) to the Basilica of the Sacré-Cœur, from where you can see all of Paris. A few steps away is Place du Tertre, once frequented by artists in the neighbourhood, still exuding a very warm, arty village atmosphere.
Best Time to Visit Paris
Paris welcomes visitors year-round, ensuring you'll find a French bed and breakfast in your preferred neighbourhood. Spring offers a delightful atmosphere with blooming parks and gardens. Summer brings pleasant weather, busy café terraces, and lively Seine riverbanks with free outdoor events. In autumn and winter, Paris remains vibrant, bustling with activities, exhibitions, fairs, shows, and films—it's the quintessential European cultural capital. Whatever the season, Paris beckons with its timeless charm.
Getting around Paris
Getting from one place to another in Paris couldn't be easier, as the public transport network is excellent. Between the metro, buses, trams and flyboats, there's an embarrassment of riches. If you choose to cycle, you'll need to be very brave, as the cycle paths are often invaded by unwelcome vehicles. Walking is still the most pleasant way to explore: Paris is a reasonable size, and many sights are very close together. Taxis and VTCs (chauffered vehicles) are plentiful. They know the city well and will get you to your B&B quickly at any time of day or night, except in the event of a traffic jam, of course!
