Our time in Paris was everything we could have hoped for and so much more.......we just can't thank you enough for your help in making it all possible.
Janine and Alain welcomed us like family into their beautiful home, they are the most gracious and generous hosts.
Breakfast every day was delicious and superbly presented in the exquisite garden. Janine's home made pastries were incredible and she gave me at least two different teas to try each morning!
The top floor guest suite is spacious and comfortable, all our needs were catered for and we were given keys to come and go as we pleased.
Alain and Janine provided us with a wealth of information and very kindly guided us around the local area when we first arrived, introducing us to local residents and familiarizing us with all the services we might require.
The local transport links are brilliant, especially the number 95 bus which stops just around the corner and runs right through Paris, all the way to Montmartre.
The recommendations which Alain and Janine gave us proved invaluable, in particular their suggestion that we attend a concert at Saint Chapelle (Janine provided a program of concerts available) and that we visit the Albert Kahn Musee et Jardin.
Had they not told us about it, we may never have discovered Albert Kahn's magnificent garden in the 16th arr, and our visit there was truly one of the highlights of our stay.
Our week in Paris was dreamy, delightful, exhilarating and completely wonderful.
We would highly recommend Alain and Janine's bed and breakfast to anyone wanting to experience the 'real' Paris and be able to 'live like the locals'.
We are extremely grateful to Petite Paris in Sydney for co ordinating and arranging our booking and for providing such friendly, helpful and practical advice at every step of the journey.
We even received an additional tip from Petite Paris whilst we were actually in Paris, to visit the Grande Mosque for afternoon tea...and this proved to be yet another unmissable highlight and a truly wonderful experience.
Thank you dear Regina for your wonderful help and advice and for always being so unfailingly cheerful and friendly! We look forward to staying in touch and hopefully one day booking another holiday in Paris!!"
