We booked “Les 3 chambres” B&B online for 10 nights.
After a long transatlantic flight we were greeted in the warmest welcoming way by the most charming of host Laurent who then gave us a tour of the beautiful apartment, offered us coffee and his famous “cake au citron”, and joined us in conversation about our agenda. It felt like home right away.
“Les 3 chambres” is very centrally located, on a typical Parisian street, 10-minute walk to Galleries Lafayette and Opéra Garnier, 15-minute walk to the Louvre; in fact, we could walk to Montmartre, Arc de Triomphe, Champs Elysées, tour Eiffel, quartier Latin, le Marais, major boulevards, bistros frequented by Parisians, we never had a need to use the Metro or taxis. The location provided us with excellent walking opportunities to discover so much of Paris while reaching destinations. Laurent was generous in his suggestions and recommendations and we will always be grateful for that.
Every day started at breakfast in the company of Laurent’s other guests with its amicability and animated conversations while enjoying the traditional Parisian fare, baguettes and croissants from the boulangerie along with the homemade fruit salads, jams, compotes, cakes, and the excellent coffee. Laurent even accommodated a couple of our very early morning starts because of out-of-town tours of Châteaux and surrounding small villages (e. g. Barbizon).
Our hosting family provided us with the intimacy that made our stay memorable and left us with a heavy heart on departure day.
