Help! Family of 4 and 4 grandparents to Paris this month

Jump to last reply

We are traveling to Paris at the end of June with my 8yo and 10yo son and daughter, along with all four grandparents. I would love to get any tips and recommendations.
My husband and I have been to Paris years ago, but when you are just a couple things are simple LOL.

I tried to find a vacation home or timeshare that could accommodate all of us, but I haven't had much luck. The hotels are outrageously priced and those around the $225 range are only double beds. That's a little tight for two adults.
I have reconciled to the fact that for us to have a nice place with bigger beds and Air Conditioning ( a must for us), we are probably going to have spend about $1000 a night for the group.

We won't have a car so we need to be close the train stops. If anyone has any suggestions i would appreciate it.

Our itinerary otherwise would be:

Monday- arrive in Paris and visit the Eiffel Tower for my daughter's birthday.
Tuesday - tour of the city.
Wednesday- day trip to Euro Disney.... I know!! but have to make this trip memorable for the little guy.
Thursday - Versailles
Friday - Loire Valley trip- Is this a good idea?

Saturday- relaxed day until we have our evening flight back.

I am a huge foodie, but the rest of the crowd no so much. Kids are die hard macaron, croissant, baguette and crepe fans. All the items they have been exposed to here.

Thanks in advance for any help .
