Find the best place to stay — Courbevoie

A hop, skip, and a jump from central Paris

Situated outside Paris's 8th arrondissement, this Ile-de-France neighborhood is an ideal option for anyone interested in exploring more than just central Paris. Don't expect to find a sleepy French village, though. Courbevoie is a cosmopolitan alternative to central Paris, with plenty of high-rises. It also overlaps with Paris's La Defense neighborhood, which hosts some of the city's tallest buildings. You'll probably be delighted to find that Courbevoie vacation rentals are a bit more affordable than those situated closer to Paris's main attractions, all while being an easy metro ride away.

Hunting for fun in the former royal hunting grounds

Just across the Seine from Courbevoie is the Bois de Boulogne, a stunning public park that dates back to the 19th century and once served as hunting grounds for the king. Today, Paris's second largest park features plenty of kid-friendly activities, bike paths, picnic areas, and the Chateau de Bagatelle, which was once used as a hunting lodge. You'll also find 2 horse-racing tracks and the Stade Roland Garros tennis stadium, which hosts the annual French Open tournament. Booking a Courbevoie vacation rental certainly offers access to Parisian highlights you might have skipped otherwise.

Paris is for lovers, Courbevoie is for architects

While architecture buffs will enjoy the high-rises of La Defense, most travelers use their Courbevoie vacation rental as a base for exploring central Paris. With a quick metro or regional rail ride, you can find yourself at the base of the Arc de Triomphe, taking in a show at the Moulin Rouge, or climbing the steps of Montmartre to Sacre-Coeur. The Eiffel Tower is a breezy cab ride away, as are the Louvre and Musee d'Orsay. Closer to home, you'll find botanical gardens, a zoo, and an amusement park, all housed in the Bois de Boulogne.

Pleasant and predictable is parfait, er, perfect

Courbevoie weather is at its most pleasant and predictable from June through September, when you can expect long, sunny days and temps in the high 70s. This, of course, means that the neighborhood is crowded and rental prices are high. Fortunately, fall and spring are also stellar, with cooler temps and stunningly colorful foliage. If you're in need of a travel deal, consider visiting in winter. The city is cold and gray, but it's a perfect excuse to practice saying "Plus de vin rouge, s'il vous plait" (More red wine, please).

A bustling suburb just across the River Seine

Set in the country's Ile-de-France region, Courbevoie is located on the northwestern edge of Paris, and is considered one of the city's most inhabitable suburbs. The neighborhood overlaps with Paris's La Defense business district to the south, and is bordered by the River Seine along one side. The are a variety of parks and gardens nearby, but much of Courbevoie's green spaces are small, private parks built to accommodate the commercial and residential buildings that occupy the majority of the area. The Ile de la Jatte and Ile de Puteaux islands stand between Courbevoie and Paris's mainland.
