This is long overdue. I don’t know how many times I’ve got an email from a reader asking for some advice on where to book an AirBnb in Paris, so I’ve finally got around to making a wishlist of my favourite stays for all budgets, group sizes and tastes. Each one is located in an area I think you would love to get to know.
