Although Paris is often regarded as a romantic couple's hideaway, a Paris vacation has plenty to offer across the generations. Many of the city's most famous attractions, including the Louvre, the Hotel de Ville and Notre Dame de Paris are located within a short walk of each other and close by the beautiful river Seine. This makes Paris a perfect place for older visitors to explore leisurely on foot or to enjoy from a relaxing cruise boat, and there is always a delightful spot close by to rest and savour a refreshing drink or snack. For trips wider afield, the city offers an efficient metro and rail system which can whisk tired legs round the city or out to Versailles, the Normandy coast or the forests around Fontainebleau.
Turning to the youngest generation, a Paris vacation can be both educational and a lot of fun. A short holiday in the city offers youngsters the chance to experience new surroundings, pick up simple French phrases and maybe begin a lifetime's exploration of history, art or travel. Children will absolutely love all that Paris has to offer, such as the myriad of rides and activities in the Louvre's Tuileries Gardens, the exotic animals and plants in the Jardin des Plantes, the Pompidou Centre's seemingly endless escalators or the cooling water jets of the nearby Stravinsky Fountain.
With so much on offer for all the family, Paris is an ideal city for three generations to enjoy time away together, and Paris accommodation providers are now recognising that families visiting Paris will often want to stay together. Although Paris enjoys a range of excellent hotels, many of which offer family rooms and aim to be child-friendly, increasingly families are looking for Paris accommodation which offers the chance to spend quality time together in a relaxed and more private atmosphere. This has led to growing demand for holiday flats in Paris which can be rented for stays of up to two weeks.
The most popular Paris rental apartments are those properties which are located in the heart of the city, close to the main tourist attractions. Families appreciate the chance to explore vibrant and welcoming residential streets which give an idea of what it would be like to actually live in Paris. Young and old alike will enjoy a morning stroll to the corner for baguettes and croissant, a first cup of coffee on a sunny cafe terrace or a view across the city rooftops from the balcony of their Paris holiday flat. And the availability of cooking, laundry, TV and internet facilities ensure that busy parents can keep on top of any family dramas!
