, recently spent a few days in Paris, viewing new apartments, as well as enjoying the beautiful Spring weather saying, "There is nowhere quite like Paris for just walking around, with or without purpose, and relaxing in an outdoor café or restaurant in the sunshine with a glass of wine, watching the world go by. We also believe that there is no better way to enjoy the City of Light, than from the comfort of a private apartment, enabling you to become a temporary local in your chosen neighbourhood. We work with over 100 beautiful apartments in central Paris
– below are a few suggestions to tempt you further:"
