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
