I'm fighting the temptation to try and keep Villa Picasso a secret, but the fact that Steve deserves a glowing reference for this place has won out. All the practicalities worked for us. Booking was straight forward, Steve was helpful at every step. The location is fantastic. If you arrive on the Eurostar, you can travel direct on the M4...

Steve's place is great and his Restaurant suggestions were perfect. His villa is in the heart of the City, but it has the feel of a home. Less than 50 steps to Metro. 15 minutes to every major attraction in Paris. Easy walk to Latin Quarter, Lux Gardens, Notre Dame, Catacombs, Montparnase Towers and great places to eat. The Farmers...

The place was spacious, with working fireplaces and having a piano and a guitar handy was lovely. In the afternoons and evenings either my nephew would...

A NEIGHBORHOOD FOR STROLLING
