Where to stay in Paris --not a newbie

Jump to last reply

We are headed to Paris mid-October for a week. We have visited 6 or 7 times before, staying once in the ST. Germain neighborhood, once in the 6th, and several times in the 16th.(Passy).

We are very comfortable with public transportation, using buses, Metro, and RER as needed.

My must-do list this time includes a day trip to visit Vaux le Vicomte and Chateau Fontainebleau, and a day visit to Versailles(we've only visited the gardens).

We are arriving mid-afternoon on a Sunday, departing the next Sunday, so we really only have 6 full days. The four days we have left beyond our day trips will be a mix of museums and visiting interesting neighborhoods and fresh markets.(No flea market-type)

We are thinking of staying in the Marais, but I'm looking for some input on specific areas that will provide a good home base for our explorations. We prefer to stay in an apartment rather than hotel, but that will need more research once I've settled on an area. I've been reading about the apt rental crackdown, so I'll be open to suggestions for agencies.

We will appreciate ideas for a specific area, as well as ideas for off-the-beaten path Paris explorations.
Thanks in advance,
Barb
