I travel with my family, and could only sleep at night comfortably if I  recommended properties to other families that I would personally go back to visit.  Hello friends!

    Welcome to Paris! Beinvenue à Paris!

    Welcome to Paris, or Bienvenue à Paris was the beautiful, pinch-me-because-am-I-really-here sign that greeted me at Orly Airport.
