When staying in Paris, it is important to pick a quartier that suits your needs and personality. Luxurious and romantic or lively and hip, Paris comes in all shapes and sizes.

    What are you looking for in a neighborhood?
    Romantic architecture, central location, calm beauty
    Edgy art galleries, quirky cafes, hip bars
    Bohemian ambiance, lively nightlife and fun times
    Bustling streets, great food, cheery atmosphere
    Elegance, Haussmann architecture, refinement

    Left Bank or Right Bank?
    Art galleries, bars, hip night life- it all depends on the quartier
    Either, as long as I'm in a friendly, lively neighborhood
    Left Bank! I can just imagine the artists, the writers, Sartre and de Beauvoir in Les Deux Magots
    Ah cherie, it's an difficult choice! The islands, right in the middle of the seine are for me, though perhaps I am more inclined towards the Right Bank
    Right bank, the heart of Paris, full of elegance and luxury

    What sort of activities would you like to do?
    I'll explore a few neighborhoods, visit a few monuments, but am not going to run around trying to do everything, and will not go on a tourist bus!

    A few lesser-known attractions might be more my thing

    Which of these scenarios most appeals to your idea of Paris?
    You get back to your studio apartment with some bags of fresh produce from a busy but fun day out. The night's not over though, and you head back out for a drink.
    You stride out of your classic Haussmann apartment, down a manicured street and make your way to Chanel, via Angelina.
    After a dreamy day out and about, you have a classically French bistro dinner and go for a stroll along the Seine
    You leave your hip studio at 7pm, and make your way to an edgy art gallery opening in your neighbourhood, followed by a snack and wine at a trendy bistro au vin.
    You leave a historic, world-famous university, your mind buzzing and cut through some charming little ruelles to have some North African pastries and a massage and body scrub in ‘Le Grande Mosquée de Paris’
