  1. I’m interested in staying in Paris. Can you recommend any nice self catering places?

    • We were just in Paris for two weeks in May and loved it so much we are going back for two more weeks in the same apartment. We used Untours (http://www.untours.com/reg.asp?RID=326 ) to find the apartment. We love the Arrondisement (15th) because it is untouristy, quiet, and we felt it gave our stay an accurate picture of what it would be like to be a resident of the wonderful city. Also the apartment is a short hop from three Metro stations…what a great system to get you anywhere! Does self-catering (not in my American lingo) mean include a kitchen? because ours had a really nice one (and a washer dryer) with food stalls just a half-block out the door. We were in heaven even with heavy rain in May…we are thinking Sept. is going to have perfect weather!!!

      • Thanks Lois for the feedback. Self-catering means you can make your own food so there is a kitchen. I’ll check out the website.

  2. We are so excited for you both!! We know you will have a great trip and hope you see everything on your must see list and revisit many of the wonderful places we saw with you. Catherine Deneuve, who knew !!

    We will be looking forward to your new blog of Paris and will secretly wish we were going with you.

    Oh, by the way, you are not off your rockers just in love with Paris.

    Hugs, Joyce

  3. Lois, you have to really fulfill Terry’s dream and mine to see Catherine Deneuve in person and take a photo for both him and me at Bon MarchĂ©! If that doesn’t happen, you can enjoy the artwork!!!! And the food!!! And buy a scarf (foulard).

  4. Good for you Lois & Terry! I thought you were going to go to Barcelona! What is the name of your apartment? Have a wonderful time.

    • Barcelona it was going to be, but then a week after we got back from Paris we looked at each other and said “that was fun and there is so much more to see”. There was still a two week slot at the Blomet apartment so we decided to go for it and put Barcelona off for a year…who knew? Will I ever sleep on a plane?
