Live just like a Parisian by choosing to stay in an apartment ideal for the whole family or to spend some quality time with your loved one. Prefer the first-hand experience of every day Parisian lifestyle by choosing to stay in a B&B with charming hosts who will gladly advise you on the “musts” of the capital.

Treat yourselves to a delicious trip with our cooking classes and gastronomy tours and cooking classes! From sweet delicacies to French “apéritif”, you will become an expert about French traditional food. Indulge yourself with an original wine tasting with an expert, or enjoy a romantic dinner on the Seine.

We also offer a variety of workshops in small groups, thus enabling closeness and easy communication with the craftsman. Choose to become a bread expert, specialize in ceramics, uncover the secrets of Parisian fad with a fashion guru, or improve your French with fun. Enjoy a stroll in Paris’ markets and discover each area’s uniqueness with a dedicated guide.
