Last year we offered a fabulous Paris break for two courtesy of Airbnb and Trip4Real as our grand survey prize, and lucky winners James & Lucy Marsland have just returned from their weekend trip to the French capital. They sent Harden’s fantastic pictures of their mini holiday alongside a great write up detailing what they got up to.
This year survey participants have the chance to win a weekend trip to Rome for two courtesy of Villa Spalletti Trivelli and Kirker Holidays. Don’t miss out – fill in your restaurant reviews here today!
James said: “We had an amazing weekend break in Paris courtesy of Harden’s, Trip4Real and Airbnb. Our Eurostar train arrived bang on time so we dropped the bags at our stunning apartment in the Marais area and headed for lunch at a restaurant that had come recommended called Les Papilles (30 Rue Gay Russac). There is no choice in this small, traditional french restaurant but all four courses were outstanding. The creamy celery soup to start and plentiful servings of Duck, lentils and vegetables with an amazing jus being the highlights.
“The weather on the following day was clear blue skies, so perfect for our guided tour of Montmatre. Our guide was quirky, funny and very knowledgeable. This really is a beautiful part of Paris. Lunch followed, sat in the sun, at a great new find called Hugette (81 Rue De Seine) which served incredible seafood such as oysters, crevettes and squid. All washed down with a lovely bottle of Cote Du Provence Rosé!
“After a lovely boat trip down the Seine we met with our photographer for the photo shoot. We hadn’t done anything like this since our wedding but it was great fun and the pics came out really well. We finished off with an amazing meal at le Comptoire at Hotel Relais St Germain. Well worth queuing for!”
