Disclosure: I received a small discount on my Vacation in Paris apartment rental in exchange for a writeup about my experience and a post about some of my favourite foodie discoveries on my most recent trip. You can read my Gourmand’s Tour of Line 8 over on the Vacation in Paris blog.
Over the past decade I have rented a lot of properties in France but the place I go back to most often is Paris, as you’ll know if you follow me on Instagram, Twitter or if you are a long-time reader of this blog. In 2004, on our way back from a cycling/ hiking and canoe trip in the the Dordogne (oh I wish I had been blogging then – I sure had a lot of tales to tell about the silly Canadian/ English/ Australian group cycling UP to Rocamadour in the blazing sun of French summer midday…. but that truly is a tale for another day!), Neil and I rented a tiny apartment a few blocks from where I used to live in the 2nd arrondissement. Immediately, we were hooked. Having a place to cook fresh produce and meats from the nearby market was bliss.
