5th of 6000 so here is an August thank you offer

Yeh, I made it to number 5 this week!!    Being ranked 5th on Trip Advisor means being 5th of all +/- 6000 listings in the Vacation Rental section of Trip Advisor Paris.   Just type ‘Paris’ and then list by Traveller Reviews. No other filters needed :-). I’m so happy I wanted to thank the people who made that happen, my gorgeous guests and all those who have at one time wanted to stay with me. When I started I had no clue how important Trip Advisor was and even less clue how their algorithms worked.  My first review was a 5 out of 5 so I jumped into the Top 500 ish.    I remember I posted on Facebook just how happy I was to be ranked in the Top 100. I was over the moon when I got into the Top 50 because that was technically page 1 of Trip Advisor !   That seems ages ago but as I only started in 2012 it can’t be ! Now the B&B has 126 reviews (of which only 9 are 4* peppered with ‘wonderful’ and ‘we will return’ statements).   The apartment is lagging behind in 9th position with only 107 […]

What’s new ? My Luxury Getaways for Ladies

Finally, I have done what I have been talking about for years – I have created something that combines my two loves and lives ; having visitors staying with me at 52 Clichy and being able to offer colour and style advice. I have always been fascinated by how the Parisian women dress. Their ‘look’ seems so casually thrown together but it isn’t.  They have spent generations honing their sense of style, understanding intuitively how to make the most of their natural assets. After 20 years living here, and because I have trained with the leading Image Consultants, ColourMeBeautiful, I understand how Parisian women create their elegant styles and I would love to share this knowledge with you so I have designed 2 ‘Luxury Getaways’ for you. What is included in Luxury Getaways ?    Stay either 2 or 3 nights at 52 Clichy, my multi-awarded Bed & Breakfast accommodation and discover your perfect colours for your complexion, your amazing clothing styles and how to use accessories – the key to pulling together each outfit. You can also learn how to create a capsule wardrobe of versatile, co-ordinated pieces – the core of any Parisian wardrobe. Come shopping in designer boutiques and […]

Paris photos please, for the Frommer’s Easy Guide to Paris 2017

WOW, I will be in another Frommer’s guidebook, Frommer’s Easy Guide to Paris, to be published in October 2016. Did you know there was a need for so many different guidebooks for Paris ?! This is what Amazon says about the current Easy Guide to Paris (2016), written by Margie Rynn : ” In 288 pages of dynamic, thoughtful prose, she guides the intelligent visitor to all the storied wonders of a glorious city, stressing her preferences for the best in every category. ” The big deal for me is that they have asked me for PHOTOS !  Particularly photos with people in them !   I sent her squillions, including the obvious balcony photo, but not many with people in them. However, I thought I would give you all the chance to relive happy memories, look at your holiday snaps and send me some gorgeous ones of you in my living room, in the apartment, on the balcony, having breakfast but perhaps not tucked up in bed ;-).  This will stop me scrabbling through my iphone on a Friday night ! Alternatively why not send some Parisian iconic scenes.  I know some of you are wonderful photographers, and I always need photos that set the scene so […]

I am in the new Paris Day by Day Guide by Frommer’s

I received an email out of the blue a couple of days ago from a lady saying she was from Frommer’s.  Initially I thought it was a scam but I couldn’t quite think of their angle, so I googled the sender and lo and behold, Meghan Lamb really is the Photo Editor at Frommer’s, the biggest guidebook company. I was already listed in the Paris Day by Day Guide by Frommer’s, written by Anna E Brooke for 2014.  There was a couple of lines in the half page attributed to B&B’s in Paris – OK, I was the only B&B identified in the book but it was still only a couple of lines. But this is better, in the revised Paris Day by Day guide by Frommer’s (headline photo), published on 29th March, I am cited twice, and I am still the only B&B listed in the book.  Take a look at what they say below. Also, if you are coming to Paris in the next couple of years, do get a copy, it is an excellent guide. Since January the B&B and the apartment have both been ranked in the Top 10 properties in Paris by Trip Advisor and with this extra exposure I […]

For fans of Marie-Antoinette – a new ‘ticket’

For those who have ‘done’ the Château de Versailles, this new ‘Pass Marie-Antoinette’ enables you to visit 4 other monuments that also have a strong connection to the life and death of the young queen. Le Chateau de Rambouillet is an impressive royal residence Louis XVI bought for her. Later she was imprisoned and held for several months in the Conciergerie up to the time of her execution. La Chapelle Expiatoire was dedicated to Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette and was built on part of the Madeleine cemetery where most of the bodies of those executed in the Revolution were buried in a mass grave. However, Marie-Antoinette’s body was moved to the Basilique Cathédrale de Saint Denis, a gothic masterpiece and final resting place of all bar 3 of the French kings and queens, in 1815.   Ask for the ‘Pass’ when you buy a full price entrance ticket at any of the 4 monuments. The entrance price to the other 3 is reduced by at least 20%. The Pass lasts 2 years, you can take your time !   Look forward to seeing you.  BOOK HERE… Want to read what previous guests have said ?  CLICK HERE.

The Apartment leaped into the Top 10 ranked by Trip Advisor

Last week the Apartment leaped into the Top 10 ranked by Trip Advisor of all +/- 6000 listings in Paris based on the consistant number of 5* ratings it received.     This is a great achievement as the apartment ratings have been gathering momentum for only a 2 year period.   To celebrate I am offering each guest who stays with me before 25th February for a minimum of 4  nights a FREE Paris Museum Pass worth €48. A lot of my apartment guests are returnees : – Lovely guests who come and stay in the B&B often decide that the apartment is the perfect location for when they return with their family; – Guests who may have come to Paris for the first time and been a little nervous, decide after staying in the B&B that they are confident enough to ‘go it alone’ but as they love the area they decide only to move 2 floors away ! – Some guests come back for more wine (you have to have been a guest to know why this is important) Thank you to all my wonderful guests who have sent in a review. Want to hear what they […]
