Our Montmartre vacation rental

We’ll always enjoy hotel stays, but the embracing nature of vacation rental experiences delivers a sense of belonging that transcends mints on the pillow and coffee in the dining room.  We’ve had the good fortune to try several vacation rentals in France, in the incredible City of Light, in the country and in small villes.  Each and every time, the experience was rich, memorable and superior to hotel stays.

Take Paris, for example.  How could we hope to ever become a resident of Montmartre with the stunning sight of Sacre Coeur around the corner, the endless bolts of French fabric along every street and the soft throb of local life among the never-ending tourists flocking to the highest point in Paris?  Frankly, we would NOT have entertained such a dream, until we found our sophisticated apartment, completely renovated at the hands of its owner, the daughter of a diplomat and successful Parisian executive.

Our rental was beyond imagination, with elegant silk drapes flowing from the high ceilings, intimate seating areas, a cozy sleeping loft with soft, down-filled bedding and every conceivable convenience, including Salle Climatesse, air conditioning!  Certainly, that was an unexpected but welcome benefit in the warm month of June.

Did I mention price?  We paid 1300 Euros for a month or about 45 Euros per night with no extra charges!  Two-star hotels with little space and zero extras start at 100 Euros a night, and even that is a bargain!

That was just our Paris vacation rental experience.  On future trips, we were quick to parlay our knowledge into wonderful stays in the Loire Valley, the Alps and the countryside near Toulouse.

Each rental offered the freedom, comfort and convenience, the benefit of parking and the hospitality of hosts and neighbors that we simply would not have experienced in hotel stays.  And there’s always the lure of attractive savings on lodging and food, on parking and laundry.

We’d love to hear from you!
