Transport
Eurostar
connects St Pancras International and Ashford with Paris Gare du Nord (from £69). Air France, BA, easyJet and Jet2 fly to Roissy- Charles de Gaulle and Orly airports from 11 UK cities (from £80). Ryanair flies to more remote Beauvais Airport from Edinburgh, Glasgow and Manchester. Travel from the airports to the city using RER trains or express bus services Roissybus or Orlybus. Paris’s Métro is efficient (£10 for a carnet of 10 tickets); buses are scenic but slow; while walking and Vélib’ bikes are good options (day ticket £1.40).

Where to stay
The Latin Quarter’s Hotel la Demeure is run by a father–son team who speak English. Rooms include iPod docks and wine glasses for BYO. Corner rooms have lovely balconies (51 Boulevard Saint Marcel; from £95). More cool than romantic, Hotel Amour, a former ‘pay by the hour establishment’, pays homage to erotic Paris. Rooms at the black-clad Amour feature art, erotic novels and vintage magazines (8 Rue Navarin; from £130). With its rotating exhibitions, a stay at 18th-century Hotel Particulier Montmartre is like staying in a modern art collector’s home. The five suites are designed by two top French artists (23 Av Junot; from £355).
