Everyone loves Paris.
It’s one of the hottest destinations in the world, and rightfully so. Every corner of the city is just so perfectly curated.
I studied French in High School and was lucky to spend some time there during two summers to work on my language skills. It was one of the first cities I got to discover as a young adult. So it holds a special place in my heart. That being said, this time I got to stay in an apartment… overlooking the Seine and Notre Dame. Everything about it was such a dream!
Granted, I am a hotel person because… well, I work IN a hotel. BUT, honestly, I think I’ll forgo the hotel route on all my future stays in Paris. A HUGE thank you to Cobblestone Paris Rentals for an incredible stay.
Below are my Top 5 Reasons to stay local while in Paris.
You get views like THIS.
I stayed at the Balcon Notre Dame apartment and the apartment had views of both the Seine and Notre Dame. Say what?!
You get that “Local” experience.
Enjoying a coffee at a local cafe, grabbing food from the local grocery store to cook in your kitchen, and even a chance to talk to neighbors (if you bump into them)
Granted my apartment was a beautiful two-bedroom, but there was so much space! Bonus: It even had a washer and dryer, so if you’re on a longer trip, that can be a real plus!
There’s something very private about staying in an apartment away from other tourists, a haven where you can come and go as you please, and it’s usually quieter than a hotel.
It is less expensive.
Generally, of course. But you can easily share with friends or family to lower costs. And if you are staying for more than 3 days, it can really save a lot. And with more money saved on accommodations, that means more money to spend in the city!
There you have it. A little bonus for my readers. Use the code ASKAC for 10% off when you book with Cobblestone Paris Rentals. I know you’ll love it as much as I did!
