Paris was indeed an amazing city to visit, but I have to confess....I've saved my favorite Paris post for last (although Cedric's Tour runs a close second!). And what better way to close out Paris with our AirBnb jackpot that we found in Montmartre.
I was completely overwhelmed when I began searching for accommodation in Paris. Where to stay? Hotel or apartment? But when I found this listing on AirBnb, the views did me in. I didn't care where it was....I needed this view! And the views did not disappoint! From our TWO balconies we could see just about all of the major landmarks in Paris. High up on the seventh floor, I felt I had made the perfect decision.
While the apartment is indeed small, the amount of windows and sunlight keep it feeling cheery. I loved waking to the views of Paris as well as winding down our day watching the sparkling Eiffel Tower.
The kitchen was very well equipped and we cooked our own breakfast every morning. Some people may think this is silly to do in Paris when you have the world's greatest pastries outside your door. But don't worry, we had our fill of the pastries! Cooking breakfast saved us a little bit of money and also helped with my little tummy bug that I was fighting off on our trip.
The bedroom, while small, was comfortable and even had it's own separate balcony, complete with a view of Sacre Couer.
The location, while not the most fancy of areas, is ideal. It is located near delicious restaurants, convenient grocery stores and several metro stops.
And let's not forget our host Martine, who was super flexible with us and very kind. Our choice in accommodation couldn't have been any better for the price, and with the Euro being as low as it is now this apartment is a steal! Who knew that an apartment can be a major attraction in Paris?!
