Second Empire styled ball at the Musée d’Orsay – interested ?

The Musée d’Orsay is organising a series of balls to celebrate their exhibition the “Spectacular Second Empire”. Some of the balls are masked! You can spend the day learning the Polka (if you can count to 3 you can dance this) or the Quadrille from the members of the Association Carnet des Bals. Take part in the ball in the afternoon just as Emperor Napoleon III and his wife Eugenie would have, all within the spectacular surroundings of the Musée d’Orsay. You are encouraged to come in costume :  “Clothing advice : for the ladies preferably a dress or long flowing skirt to remind you of the Second Empire theme. You could also add accessories such as a fan, handkerchief, low chignon decorated with flowers, ribbons or pearls. White gloves for the men.”  Who doesn’t love dressing up ? If you are you in Paris for the Bal de Carnaval à l’Opéra on Sunday 13th November from 11am to 5pm, tickets are €27.50. I love the period of the Second Empire. What the heck is that I hear you say!  Well it is the 18 years that radically changed Paris, from 1852 – 1870. For me this period denotes all […]

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 […]

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 […]
