... the French mix up the flowers in their baskets, pots and flower beds in a way we wouldn't, often because the plants they put together would get too big in Australia with our longer growing season. Although we have only been in northern France each region is quite different. We came from Alsace where you can see the German influence in many ways. of course Alsace has been part of Germany in the past. We saw a very moving war memorial in the little town of Riquewihr ...
... by the brilliantly coloured stained glass windows and detailed ceiling paintings. I even get lucky with some sun through the windows. The paintings on the walls and ceiling domes feature a lot of gilt too, catching little bits of light. It's a really nice buildings, and of course has many sculptures too - including some stone angles with wings merging with the big dome (amazing to look at). Next I head to Shakespeare and Co., which I didn't feel I ...
... Next morning I asked the others how they felt. Both Olga and Warwick admitted to feeling unwell although they didn't seem to have been as badly affected as I was. Even by Monday morning I was still feeling the effects so took it very easy at breakfast with only dry toast and the best thing ever for helping this condition - peppermint tea. Instant relief from stomach cramps and discomfort. By Monday weather had turned miserable. Cold and wet. Good day to feel lousy as ...

Today the people all seem to be in foul moods and I am convinced that the weather has a big role to play in this. Yesterday was sunny and one could feel the joy in the people around you.This put quite a damper on the big parade that they have at 1900. We also decided to stand on the other side so that we could see the floats from a different angle but even this was not as exciting as the night before. We spent a lot of time looking ...

Our hotel is in the Latin Quarter and there are lots of little cobblestone alleyways all around. We just kind of wandered about until we saw a restaurant that looked good. There were a lot of tourist trap places but we kept going until we saw this place that had some tourists, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Marriott's Village d'Ile-de-France Bailly-Romainvilliers
What a great place! We stayed here November 4-11 and it was so wonderful! Since it was a larger unit, we invited my parents along with us and it was perfect!
I stayed at this hotel with my family who was visiting me. They wanted to go to Paris but I didn't want to drive all the way into the city. The 6 of us stayed in a townhouse and opted to take the train into the city.
The townhouse was very spacious and nice, especially considering we only paid 119 euro.
We did have some heat problems, were missing the coffee pot from our coffee maker, and given a little bit of misinformation.
Overall, we did enjoy this location. I would highly recommend it, and I would come back again.
This resort itself is very well built and all the staff were very friendly and helpful, we didn't find anything to complain about. The view was very good. The rooms, kitchens are all well-equiped. There was a lady at "activity desk" to arrange various activities for your family to nearby regions. However, you have to know that it takes more than one hour for you to get into paris by shuttle-RER-metro. If you plan to get into paris almost everyday, you probably should stay in town. (The hotel now offer several complimentary shuttles to Chessy station, but otherwise you have to catch up a 34 line bus or by taxi/reserve minivan by hotel.)
We walked into our townhouse and my husband said, "This is our dream home." It was decorated as a model home would be. The beds were extremely comfortable. Our daughters loved the two pools. We chose this place because we wanted to be close to Disneyland Paris and the price was amazing-- a two bedroom townhouse which sleeps six was only 119 euros for the night. Stay here but also know that the shuttle to Disneyland is not entirely convenient.
As regular visitors to Disneyland Paris (DLP) since it first opened we have previously stayed on a range of on-site Disney accomodation. As we have 2 small daughters we have found the Camp Davy Crockett Lodges the best family option until now becauase of the multiple bed rooms HOWEVER this time we tried the Marriott timeshare resort at Marriott d'Ile-de-France. Although we own at Marriott Marbella, Marriott Cypress Harbour and DVC, we did this as a cash booking via the Marriott website rather than using timeshare points. This was simply the best accommodation we have ever stayed in when visiting DLP. Yes the resort is not yet finished, but we did not actually notice any construction going on (although you could see where it was screened off at the far end of the resort, there was no noise or construction traffic whilst we were there). There was a shuttle to DLP but as we live in London we had taken our own car over via the Channel Tunnel. The swimming pool (an indoor and an outdoor one) was fantastic - much loved by our daughters. There is no on-site restaurant, but this is not a bad thing - who wants to dine on hotel food? The accommodation was first class - we had a two bedroom town house which was better designed than our house in London. There is no way that we are going to use DLP hotels again if we can get in here, and there is everylikelihood of repeat visits. Top Tip - if you want to visit the DLP parks for more than 3 days you might find the Annual Passes better value - especially the 345 day Fantasy Pass. We bought the annual passes because we enjoyed the flexibility of simply dipping in and out of the parks - rather than trying to cram our visit in to 1 or 2 days.
Our family really enjoyed staying here. Our cute two story townhouse was quite large and gave everyone their space. We had a full kitchen and walked to Bailly Romainvilliers to buy groceries at a small but amazing supermarket.
We used their shuttle service to go to the Marne La Vallee train station and caught the RER A to go into Paris.
It should be noted that there is no Wi-Fi Internet access offered, you have to buy a card with a passkey to use their public Internet computers.
Overall, it's a great place and we are definitely planning to return.
Our two bedroom, 2 1/2 baths villa was spacious and tastefully decorated. It had hardwood floors throughout, granite countertops, a washer/dryer combination, and a fully equipped kitchen. The daily maid service kept everything tidy and clean. The view of the golf course was very pretty, especially with the mist rising in the morning. We were also pleased with the pool area and small convenience store that supplied tasty baked goods and small grocery items. We walked to the neighborhood bakery and grocery store in Bailly Romainville daily for additional items - a mere 10 minutes away. The free shuttle bus was offered 3-4 x mornings and late afternoon/evenings. We found it very convenient to catch the shuttle and then transfer to the RER at the Disneyland station to catch the train into Paris. I would recommend the Carte Orange pass to save money on train fares. Our family of four had a wonderful time at the Marriott visiting both Disney and Paris, and we hope to return soon.
What a beautiful resort. Still not finishes, but 100% in use. It consists of small houses with a livingroom-kitchen and toilet and washer and dryer downstairs and two bedrooms plus 2 bathrooms upstairs.
This vacation was a disaster from start to finish. It began waiting fourty five minutes for a shuttle to pick us up from the Eurostar station. Then when we arrived at the resort, it was like walking into the hotel from "The Shining". The lobby was empty, there is NO restaurant on the premises, and the staff appear to have as much charisma as corpses.
