  • How to Find a Great Vacation Rental in France

    By Wini Moranville

    For the past 20 years, I’ve spent major stretches of my summers staying in vacation rentals in France. If you’ve never gone this route, I highly recommend it. Not only does having a kitchen help you save on dining expenses, it also allows you to do more than take photos of all those glorious foods the daily markets. You can actually take those beauties home and cook them.

  • Hotel Verneuil: A Boutique Hotel in the heart of St. Germain des Prés

    By Katherine Brodsky

    There's a lot to be said about staying in the right location in Paris. If you're centrally located, you spend more time enjoying the city and less time worrying about how to get around. You can also feel the energy of the nightlife or the hustle and bustle of the city as it wakes up. All of this makes a big difference in how you enjoy your stay. When it comes to location, Hotel Verneuil certainly delivers. But this boutique 26-room hotel has a lot more to offer.

  • Two New Paris Hotels June 2013

    By Paige Donner

    With The Ritz and Le Crillon both shuttering their doors in the past year for renovations, the realization that there could be a resulting dearth of hotel rooms in the City of Lights might cross a traveler’s mind. But it seems that the more entrepreneurial boutique hoteliers of the city have taken these recent developments as a cue that there’s added incentive to open new design hotels in innovative parts of the city.

  • Georgette Popincourt - Hotel Georgette meets La Maison Popincourt (gym)

    By Paige Donner

    Georgette Popincourt. Doesn’t that sound like the name of an Anglo-Parisian heroine in the latest NY Times bestseller? In fact, I like that name so much I think I might even use it.

  • Finding Peace and Love in Paris

    By Nick Hilden

    We had spiraled our way up six floors or so when Richard told me that his head was spinning and that he needed to take a break. We sat on a landing and talked boozily about the approaching morning rendezvous we had set with a pair of German girls we'd met earlier in the night while drinking by the canal. I took a pull from the bottle of wine that I did not remember acquiring and offered it to Richard, who waved it off.

  • How to Snag (and not lose) a Good Rental Apartment in Paris or Anywhere

    By Karen Fawcett

    Karen FawcettFrom time to time I hear sad stories from people who have rented an apartment in Paris and feel they didn’t get what they paid for or, worse, thought they were scammed. It doesn't happen very often, but it does happen. On the flipside, I also hear complaints from apartment owners about lousy tenants. Why not? Renting an apartment takes two sides, after all. You have to look out for yourself, check out the apartment, do some homework. But you also have to understand the owner’s point of view. And this is what I want to talk to you about.
