    Why the City of Lights is always a great idea

    Ah, the City of Lights! Booking a Paris vacation rental puts you within steps of iconic attractions, historic districts, and vibrant shops. One of the world's leading hubs of fashion, art, and entertainment, the posh French city is renowned for its romantic appeal and natural beauty. Here, you can sip a glass of wine at a busy sidewalk cafe, sample France's famous cuisine, cruise the River Seine, and tour The Louvre. It's all in a day's work when you spend a few days in a city renowned for its refined culture.

    Just say "oui" to shopping in lovely Paris

    It's impossible to visit Paris and not go sightseeing, and one of the best ways is by boat on the Seine. Since Paris is a compact city, you can also stroll the boulevards, crossing from arrondissement to arrondissement. If you booked a Paris vacation rental with a fashionable vibe in mind, head to the Marais. Or wander up to arty Montmartre, or check out the unique Les Puces de Saint-Ouen flea market. If shopping is your thing, you've come to the right place—Rue Faubourg St Honore and Avenue Montaigne should satisfy all your needs. Alternatively, just watch the world go by from a cafe.

    Earning your bragging rights in grand Paris

    The iconic Eiffel Tower stands over the city, its searchlight beaming into the night. Paris is also home to some of the world's greatest art collections, and you'll be transfixed by the Louvre. Take a look at the Arc de Triomphe, the arched monument at the end of the Champs-Elysees boulevard. If you booked a Paris vacation rental with the family, Disneyland Paris is 40 km from the city center. Bragging on social media? Stop at Tuileries Garden, dating from the 17th century, or Notre-Dame Cathedral, or Le Jardin de Luxembourg, or Cimitiere du Pere Lachaise, or the Centre Pompidou—the list is almost endless.

    It's not all about April in Paris (though that's great, too)

    Although Paris is generally mild and pleasant, it does tend to rain. Springtime, made famous by Sinatra's song, is cool at night, yet comfortable during the day and an ideal time for a walk around your arrondissement. Fall has much the same weather. Snow might come in the winter, but it's not the kind that sticks around, and temperatures rarely dip below freezing. If you prefer hotter weather, book a Paris vacation rental in the summer. You'll enjoy sunnier days with temperatures that head into the 80s.

    Hills, islands, and parks—oh what a lovely landscape

    Paris is a relatively compact city cut in 2 by the River Seine. Its 2 halves are broadly known as the Rive Gauche (Left Bank) and Rive Droite (Right Bank). Parts of the city host lovely green spaces, sometimes hiding gems like a bird reserve at the Bois de Vincennes and the lush gardens at the Parc Floral. There's also the Bois de Boulogne. Paris is also home to 2 islands in the Seine: Ile de la Cite and Ile Saint-Louis. There are also a few hills, including Montagne Sainte-Genevieve, on which the Pantheon mausoleum is perched.
