The Paris/Ile de France region
Paris is known for its famous buildings and works of art, its chic fashion scene and its modern literary, artistic, and intellectual ideals, and is a must for anyone wishing to experience the best of both contemporary and age old European culture. If you have limited time, make sure to go to the area north of the river, the Rive Droite, to see the tree-lined Avenue des Champs Elysees, running west from the Arc de Triomphe. East of the avenue is the
Musee du Louvre, the Centre Georges Pompidou and a lively district of museums, shops, markets and restaurants. Immediately south of the Pompidou Centre on the Ile de la Cite is Notre Dame Cathedral. If you still have time, head west along the river and you will find the city’s trademark, the Eiffel Tower. If you are intrigued by Paris’ famous academic, artistic and intellectual enclave, the Saint Germain de Pres and Montparnasse districts are located just to the east.
The 4th is a very centrally located arrondissement, right between the Châtelet and Bastille areas, two of Paris' main transportation.
The main thing to do being to explore. Of particular interest is the Île Saint Louis (complete with having an ice-cream or sorbet from Berthillon), the Hôtels Particuliars, and the Pletzle particularly rue des Rosiers and the area around Place du Marché Sainte-Catherine.
The 4th is a good chunk of what used to be medieval Paris, and you'll find a lot left from that time on both islands and in the narrow streets of the lower Marais. Meanwhile there's lots that's contemporary to look at especially at the Centre Georges Pompidou where you'll find a lot of the very best contemporary art.
At night the 4th has several of the most active bar scenes most travelers will have ever seen, including the lower Marais district which is sometimes known as gay Paris although there are no shortage of bars catering to straight singles or a mixed crowd, or, in the early evening, families.

"Well located Parisian apartment"
I stayed in this apartment with my parents and my children - we were thrilled to be able to find a proper 3 bed apartment as there aren't many in a good location. This place is just off the Place… More

"Lovely typically Parisienne quirky apartment"
The apartment was absolutely lovely. It was like a home from home as the owners had left lots of their own personal items, there's even a piano! It's in an old building, typically Parisienne, with uneven floors and quirky little nooks and crannies.The only down-side is that there is not sufficient comfortable seating in the living room for a large party. You might also consider the fact that there are no English channels on the TV a downside, but this didn't bother us as we just used the iPod dock supplied to play music. There is a DVD player, so if you want to keep children amused, take a few DVDs.
It would sleep 6 comfortably and probably more as there was at least one other pull out bed we discovered. The two double bedrooms are at the back and very quiet. The front twin room was noisier as there are a few bars and bistros in the street below, but fine if you don't mind sleeping with the windows closed.
The stairs up to two of the bedrooms and the bathroom are narrow and quite steep but this only added to the charm. We did have to duck to get round them so this might be a bit dangerous for children or even adults after a few glasses of vin rouge! There's a bath and a seperate shower, but don't expect to be able to lie and soak - the bath is not very long.
The area is quite up-market but, away from the more popular areas, you can still eat at a sensible price - Paris is expensive remember! There are plenty of bistros, bars and restaurants to chose from but there's all you need in the apartment if you prefer to stay in and cook (why would you!!).
It's close to the Bastille metro station so if you're coming in on Eurostar just hop on line 5 and you don't have to change metro lines - easy, peasy. Within easy walking distance of Notre Dame and many other attractions, but use the metro if you don't want to walk around this beautiful city. The metro is cheap and very easy to use but most stations don't have escalators so are not very buggy or wheelchair friendly.
We were a group of 'mature ladies' who had a fabulous 4 days in this apartment and would happily have stayed longer. I would highly recommend it but be warned that it is on the second floor and there's no lift.
