WHERE TO STAY IN PARIS — BEST NEIGHBORHOODS AND ACCOMMODATION
Written by travel guru “ADVENTUROUS KATE”
This wasn’t just a Paris apartment rental — this was a THIS-IS-THE-MOST-PARISIAN-APARTMENT-EVER
Brimming with charm, it also had the convenience factor tough to find in actual Paris apartments. Washer and dryer? Yes. Flatscreen TV? That’s so nice. Electric kettle? I can’t go without one! All the cooking supplies you could want. And wifi, of course.
Best of all, it was filled with special little touches — a bottle of red wine, a bar of dark chocolate, a selection of Paris guidebooks and a DVD basket filled with movies that take place in Paris. I love being delighted in my accommodation, and I was delighted over and over.
I was ready to move in that day. Seriously.
If you’re looking for a truly special place to stay on your trip to Paris, Cobblestone Paris is it. I cannot wait to stay in one of their properties again.

A SECRET BASTILLE RETREAT AND A SUNSET CRUISE ON THE SEINE
Written by Travel Blogger: “Leah Davis from The Sweetest Way”
Paris was full of surprises for me. The friendliness of the people, the happy summer vibes and positive energy filling the streets, the way it tugged at my heartstrings like certain other cities very near and dear to me.
The narrow alleyways, the endearing neighborhoods, the quaint restaurants and shops, each one seemingly better than the last.
During the first four days of our stay, we explored by foot, by metro, and by bicycle (which I’ll get to in my next post!). We saw much of the city including many of the “must-sees,” so, by the time we came back for one final night, we were perfectly content to stick to one neighborhood and relax, living a bit more like a real Parisian might.
#LIVELIKEALOCAL WITH COBBLESTONE PARIS: LE PASSAGE DU MARAIS
Written by: “Joanna and Jeremiah from the Moment Keepers”
Paris the city of lights is undoubtedly one of the world’s top destinations with so many highlights, from the Eiffel Tower to the Louvre that most of the time travelers tend to explore the city in a fast pace. So when we decided to spend our wedding anniversary in this city, I only have one request with the husband – to keep everything slow and relax. I even told him that I wanted to see how the Parisians live. The idea of staying in an apartment sounds a perfect way to somehow experience being a local.
When we found Cobblestone Paris Rentals website, we fell in love with their charming properties. While renting an entire apartment instead of a small hotel room sound extravagant, the reality is that short-term apartment rentals are often less expensive than a decent hotel. Let us take you to the days we live like a local at Le Passage Du Marais.
HOW TO LIVE LIKE A PARISIAN
Written by: “Amy Donoghue”
Paris is one of the world’s most iconic destinations, inspiring travel fantasies and capturing hearts and imaginations all over the world. ‘The wrought-iron spire of the Eiffel Tower piercing the clouds, the broad Arc de Triomphe guarding Paris’ most glamorous avenue’; it’s travel porn at it’s finest.
Some people fantasize about sharing a kiss in front of the Eiffel Tower, others about stylish shopping, and lamplit bridges spanning the Seine. But my fantasies have always been about immersing myself into everyday life. To wake up in a Parisian apartment, and skip downstairs to the market to eat my bodyweight in French pastry.
I’ve always dreamed I would spend the day exploring, and then drag myself back to my neighborhood, smiling at other locals in passing. ‘Because tourists don’t stay here darling‘.
I care about the iconic attractions, of course, but with so many highlights it can be a challenge to experience the city like a local would. And with 20 million odd travelers who visit the city every year, I wanted a more authentic experience than your average tourist would.
