Coucou Paris lovers and B&B travelers,
Week 2 in Paris was another beautiful blurr of B&Bs inspections (serious face on, here is my B&B head hunting for beautiful homes under le Haussmann buildings ...)
First things first... indulging for breakfast on eclairs :) Coffee cream filled bien sur! Found at ANY boulangerie you pass (and there is one on almost every corner). Thanks Paris!
Studio Selfies with Joel, our handsome and hospitable studio host (pictured below)! His studio is on Rue du Temple a very sought after location, 1 min walk to Hotel de Ville and the Seine river, this home is fully equipped and impeccably presented and only 119euro per night for 2 breakfast included.
...All the purple foods in the fruit markets along the streets... the Fall is the most sumptuous season - plums, grapes, figs galore...pick up supplies for a little picnic somewhere green and leafy...
P.S We have 3 GORGEOUS Paris Bed & Breakfast Apartments moments from this iconic and picturesque spot:

3. B&B Carol - antique traditional home stay 189euro per night for 2 with full 5star service - CLICK HERE to view
Next we LOVED visiting Apartment James, exclusively located right across the road from the Sacre Coeur Basilica (the most visited attraction in Paris) in the artists village of Montmartre, makes this home IDEAL for the Christmas period when the Montmartre village lights up and the village markets are truly the most magical sight in Paris!
Jame's 1 bedroom apartment is superb, charming and beautifully decorated and tranquil. From ONLY 110euro per night.
...Happily lost in Parisian passages and suddenly we found ourselves emerge into a hidden world of art and antiques in a courtyard laneway-labyrinth of art shops and sleepy antique dealers. Absolutely tranquil little oasis in the heart of the city (the Marais) for the antique lovers. Visit Village Saint Paul - Opens daily 11am - 7pm MAP
PS We have 2 BEAUTIFUL Paris B&Bs and Apartments near this antique village, in the heart of Paris:
1. B&B Marie-C - a classic guesthouse at 96euro per night for 2 - CLICK HERE to view it on our website
2. Apartment Antonella - a truly unique large 2 bedrom private apartment overlooking a tropical garden - 145euro per night for 1-3 guests - CLICK HERE to view it on our website
The beautiful Montmartre sunset on the way home from B&B inspections, crossing Paris end-to-end, is such a reward...
B&B Isabelle is another highlighted feature home we revisited this week. One of many but we especially highlight this home because it is such an authentic intimate cultural immersion experience waiting to happen for those looking for a rich connection to Paris and kind and interesting Parisians. Isabelle offers a private B&B suite with its own private entry and ensuite bathroom, separate to her own home to give guests privacy and independence yet she is very hands on and offers delicious breakfast service in her private home daily, on the INCREDIBLE terrace balcony (image below) which guests are welcome to enjoy anytime for drinks, and the lavish lounge room too where there are books and art to admire and a working fireplace for the warm months. This is one of our favourite authentic homestay B&B experiences. 155euro per night for 2 guests, 175euro per night for 3.
Au revoir, stay tuned for our final week in Paris when we return in December - christmas spirit in the air!
