Paris wel­come

France - - Have Your Say -

My hus­band and I have just re­turned from a lovely five-day visit to Paris. When plan­ning our trip, I re­mem­bered see­ing an ar­ti­cle on Paris ho­tels in FRANCE Mag­a­zine (May 2016, is­sue 212) and we chose the Hô­tel de la Tré­moille, which was a great suc­cess.

The ho­tel is cen­trally lo­cated, very com­fort­able and has help­ful staff. There were many good small restau­rants close by, and the ho­tel door­men were happy to rec­om­mend bistros and brasseries fur­ther away, book us a ta­ble and call a taxi.

We vis­ited sev­eral of the city’s won­der­ful gal­leries and mu­se­ums, par­tic­u­larly en­joy­ing the Musée d’or­say and the Musée Rodin. I have MS and find walk­ing more dif­fi­cult now, but if you have a Dis­abled Park­ing badge, you can go straight to the front of the queue – no wait­ing – and are given free en­try for your­self and a com­pan­ion. Most places have wheel­chairs avail­able to bor­row, plenty of lifts and fa­cil­i­ties for the dis­abled, and staff were all will­ing to help in any way they could. We also found this to be the case when we vis­ited the charm­ing Cau­mont arts cen­tre in Aix-en-provence last sum­mer. Jan­ice Ven­ables Kidling­ton, Ox­ford­shire
