Discover Paris

“A Moveable Feast” by Ernest Hemingway

Visit Paris

Paris is more than just a city; it’s a mosaic of villages and neighborhoods (Montmartre, Belleville, Saint Germian des Près, Batignolles…), each with its own identity, each different from the others. You’ll soon fall under the spell of their architecture, their appearance and their atmosphere.

From Les3chambres you can get to the main monuments and museums of Paris on foot: the Louvre, the Musée d’Orsay, the Eiffel Tower or Montmartre.

The best way to get a feel for Paris is on foot. Take the time to head off in search of the city and its inhabitants as they really are, together with their mysteries and historical anecdotes.

Street by street, seek out the unusual, soak up the personality of each of the different neighborhoods, where craftspeople, artists and shopkeepers await you in their workshops and boutiques.

Paris river Seine docks

Following the Seine through Paris is a way of enjoying a thousand different escapades on the river, its bridges and islands. Daytime or night time, Left Bank or Right Bank, you will appreciate the buzz of activity along the quaysides and the lapping of the waves. There are any number of ways to relax – aboard a boat, cycling, walking briskly, sauntering lazily, or working out, dining, dancing on barges, exploring an area between two exhibitions, taking a post-shopping break, or sunbathing in a swimsuit. You never fail to be filled with wonder at these riverbanks, classed as a world heritage site by Unesco.
