Paris; the city of lights, the most romantic city in the world… Who wouldn’t want to feel at home wandering the historic streets lined with opulent ornate buildings, freshly baked baguette in hand? Villa Daubenton offers just such an experience. Your own Paris apartment on a quiet residential street in the Latin Quarter. There are plenty of tourists hot spots nearby, but you wouldn’t know it from the peaceful views from the balcony.
In fact, Villa Daubenton is only a 20 minute walk from Notre Dame cathedral and the tourist hustle and bustle of the Ile de la Cite.
Of course what’s inside the apartment is perhaps more impressive than the attractions outside. Villa Daubenton offers accommodations suitable from 2-6 people in a studio, one bedroom, or two bedroom apartment. I stayed in a two bedroom apartment, which can accommodate up to six people.
The two bedroom apartment consist of a master bedroom with a king sized bed, a second bedroom with two twin beds, a living area with pull out sofa, full kitchen and two bathrooms on two separate floors, complete with spiral stairs! In a city notorious for teeny tiny hotel rooms, this is quite the asset and of course all of the apartments are immaculately decorated.
Of course all amenities are included and then some!
Oh and let’s not forget the most important part of any vacation… the food! Breakfast at Villa Daubenton is to die for! Each morning one of the wonderful staff members delivers a bag full of fresh delicious treats procured from local bakeries. Croissants, fruit, coffee, freshly squeezed orange juice and a morning paper (in either French or English). The croissants in Paris are unrivaled, and when both the traditional and chocolate variety are delivered to your door, that’s heavenly!
Best of all (besides those views and those croissants!) is that the Villa Daubenton is part of the Happy Culture hotel group. Each Happy Culture hotel offers a unique experience for it’s guests, be it a mid-day wine tasting, a 24/7 candy bar, or in the case of Villa Daubenton, evening movies and cocooning.
This was the perfect way to spend a cold rainy night in Paris, bundled up watching movies and eating freshly popped popcorn!
The great thing about staying at one of the Happy Culture hotels, is that you have access to all 19 Happy Culture hotels around town. This means where ever you are in the city, you can pop into a nearby hotel and enjoy a glass of wine or cup of coffee while you charge up on their complementary lobby phone chargers. Just check out the Happy Culture app to find out what hotels are near you and what they have to offer.
There are many reasons that the Villa Daubenton is the perfect place to stay in Paris, but none more than the service. The team at Villa Daubenton provides what I’m convinced is the best service in all of Paris. Do yourself a favor and pick their brains. Everyone there is passionate about their city and full of great recommendations for restaurants and attractions off the regular tourist path. Paris can be an intimidating city and these guys really make you feel at home.
