P.S. I am so sorry that I just discovered the book because I definitely would have given it as Holiday Gifts had I known!

If you're like me and don't like big, stuffy, commercial hotels then Casey O'Brien Blondes Parisian Hideaways is the perfect planning book for a visit to Paris.

Here is a cripsly written and lavishly illustrated book that is a useful guide to the quiet hotels in scenic pockets of the city.

Paris is a mystery to everyone but Parisians. Here is a cripsly written and lavishly illustrated book that is a useful guide to the quiet hotels in scenic pockets of the city. I loved reading about the quirks of the proprietors and their tips about their neighborhoods, from scenic views to hidden shops. Parisian Hideaways is something between porn and poetry for the urbane traveler.

I've had more fun planning my upcoming trip with Ms. Blondes' book as a delicious resource. I used her previous Ouevre, "French Country Hideaways" to plan a previous trip to France and was perfectly guided to find the right chateaux to suit me. Imagine my delight to now discover a Parisian version. One of the most helpful aspects of her books are the "Coups de Coeur" for each property. The little extras in the neighbourhood that enrich your experience. I am using her suggestions to plan my itinerary of things to do while visiting. Even though I am only staying in one of these gems, I've made a note of where I want to stop by for drinks or tea just to take in the ambience. Bravo!
P.S. I am so sorry that I just discovered the book because I definitely would have given it as Holiday Gifts had I known!

Whether you are looking for Parisian luxury or simple French style, O'Brien Blondes has sought out the most intriguing places to stay in the City of Lights. I have given Parisian Hideways to a number of friends traveling to Paris, all of whom have reported back with rave reviews for this exquisite selection of choice hotels.
