Are you planning a sojourn in the City of Light? Perhaps you should consider renting an apartment instead of a hotel room.
Feels Like Home in Paris is an extraordinary vacation rentals agency that has been supplying short and long-term apartments since 2005, predominantly in the residential neighborhood and infamous artists’ haunt of Montmartre, in the 18th arrondissement.
Imagine being able to experience Paris in comfort and style without feeling like an outsider looking in. The ethos at Feels Like Home in Paris is unique in that everything is tailored towards helping you live as if you are a real Parisian. Whether it is discovering a favorite boulangerie and fromagerie, using the local buses and metro services, dining at the top restaurants, or familiarizing yourself with the various antique and food markets, you will be given all the tools you could possibly desire to witness the magic of Montmartre and Paris for yourself from an educated, local perspective.
The transformation begins at the orientation to your apartment, where the owner, Yetunde Oshodi, (or one of her French/English-speaking team) will instantly adapt you to your surroundings, outlining any information you need to know about your new residence and its appliances. Instructions on how to view your Cable TV, access the WiFi network located on the in-house Mac, as well as potentially avail of any free deals on local and international telephone calls via the apartment landline, will be easily explained.
Each apartment is individually themed in terms of décor and location to suit an eclectic mix of tastes and preferences. They are also stocked with an excellent assortment of maps, guide books, DVDs as well as an invaluable welcome book created by Yetunde herself, including a comprehensive list of personal recommendations and suggestions for the best places to visit besides the main tourist attractions. The Feels Like Home in Paris blog provides an excellent accompaniment to this collection, essentially forming an insider’s guide in itself to Paris and Montmartre.
As the majority of the apartments are ideally situated in Montmartre – home of the internationally acclaimed Bal du Moulin Rouge, minutes from the steps of La Basilique du Sacré-Coeur and some of the best views in Paris, while only a short bus/metro ride from the city center - we can pretty much guarantee your stay with Feels Like Home in Paris will leave you not just feeling like, but wishing it actually was your home.
The attention to detail and all-round dedication in delivering a first class example of hospitality to visitors of a new locale can also be felt in the addition of a complimentary welcome basket and wine and cheese tasting, courtesy of Cook’n With Class (a cookery school owned by Yetunde’s husband). Exemplified even further by a deal for couples to receive a 50% discount off a cooking class of their choice, it is easy to understand why Feels Like Home in Paris has received such excellent reviews online. We were certainly treated impeccably during our stay.
