Hello. We are 2 adults travelling with our 3 children (<2, 7 & 10 yrs old) for our first trip to France. We are considering to rent an apartment next to Jardin Des Plantes. We'll be in Paris for 4 days/3 nights from Saturday to Tuesday in April 2013.
1) What would be the advantages / disadvantages of staying in this location?
2) Is this place okay to base ourselves for sightseeing in Paris?
3) What attractions or natural parks, etc, are available in this area that would be interesting for our children (they like museums, outdoor activities and enjoy eating too :))
Thanks in advance for your input.
