    Maison Lepic is a comfortable B&B in the 18th arrondissement, boasting one of the most animated locations in Paris. As it’s a short walk from La Cigale concert hall and other major attractions, such as the Sacré-Cœur, Théâtre des Mathurins and Opéra Garnier, it’s a great base for a city break. There’s a relaxing garden, a terrace to soak up the sun and a cosy shared lounge. Not many people know that Maison Lepic was once home to one of the most influential figures in the history of Western art. Between 1886 and 1889, it was the address of legendary Dutch impressionist Vincent van Gogh, who drew lots of inspiration from his time in Paris. It’s a must-stay for anyone who wants to follow in the footsteps of Van Gogh.

    Shakespeare & Co. Paris

    Some might say we’ve saved the quirkiest B&B in Paris for last – it’s definitely one of the most coveted. The bookstore Shakespeare & Co., established by Sylvia Beach in 1919, has been inviting “tumbleweeds” (bohemian poets and writers) to sleep in its rustic quarters for decades. It’s the perfect spot for the book-loving introvert to ponder. More than 30,000 aspiring artists have stayed in the bookstore in exchange for a few hours of work on the tills during the day. All you have to do is send the current owner an email, explaining why you’d like to stay, mentioning your passion for literature. There’s a resident cat mooching around in case you get lonely, often with the sound of someone playing the piano in the background. The bookstore hosts evening workshops, readings and author talks, which will keep you busy until late.
