By now you’ve probably seen many of my favourite photos from my recent trip to Paris (more links at the end of this post). But what I haven’t shown you yet, was the stunning apartment we stayed in. Full disclosure, these photos are from the rental companies web site, photographing interiors is really difficult and the photos I took did not do it justice.
I love travelling with Dave and his family, not only do they plan the best trips, but they choose the best accommodations. Instead of experiencing the trip from a hotel room (whomp whomp), we literally live like locals! This apartment was right in the heart of Paris overlooking the Palais Royale. It felt so authentic and also allowed us to take a break from eating out and cook our own meals. Highly recommend this place. A beautiful backdrop to share laughs, sip wine (more than I’d like to admit), and eat more than our share of baguettes. Bonus: there were 91 stairs to get up to our apartment (after the 10th time going up, we decided we needed to count them), which meant that we could offset some of the wine and cheese we enjoyed. There was an elevator but we opted out.
The main living room where we all hung out while in the apartment (aka sipped wine)
I loved these beautiful chevron floors!
A few falls down this, pretty [slippery] staircase, so many laughs (I’m a jerk)
The view of the Palais Royale. No big deal.
Our room was off the main living area.
Even the doors were gorgeous!
Our massive en-suite bathroom (every room had one!)
The most charming bedroom where Dave’s parents stayed, wood beams, an amazing terrace and sloped ceilings
Their amazing view off the terrace!!!
Master bedroom en-suite, not too shabs.
The second upstairs bedroom, this was also super charmsville.
