Les Etangs de Corot: hotel amongst impressionists

This is a magnificent hotel, near where I used to lived in Versailles. I put it here because I have been Inside as friends stayed there couple of times, and I was taken them out each time.
Etangs means water basins or lakes, and it is beautifully a painters heaven that is why Corot was here.
Most will come from Paris and a car is a must.
by the Porte Maillot / Pont de Suresnes, go on boulevard Henri Sellier towards St Cloud and continue to town and hotel is on the left hand side. by the Porte d’Auteuil / Pont de St Cloud, take direction St Cloud centre ville, go into the city of St Cloud (direction Garches). by the Porte de St Cloud / Pont de Sèvres, take the road D910 to the right Chaville. At about 800 meters take a right in direction Ville-d’Avray. by the autoroute A13, Paris/Normandie get off at exit/ sortie 5 (Versailles Centre ville/Chateau). Go underneath the A13, direction Versailles.

and if you at Versailles like I was you take the avenue de St Cloud, continue same road call avenue des Etats-Unis.Take right at the curvy road in direction Ville d’Avray and continue straight the hotel will be on your right hand side

by public transport, you can do it
take train from Gare St Lazare direction Versailles Rive Droite, stop at Gare Sèvres Ville d’Avray then take bus 469 direction Porte des Hauts-de-Seine, stop/arrêt Les Etangs or walk for about 20 minutes
also at same station in VErsailles you can take bus 471 direction Saint-Cloud,stop/ arrêt Les Etangs or take taxi for about 10 minutes/
From the Gare Montparnasse : take the train direction Rembouillet/Dreux or Mantes La Jolie, stop/ Arrêt Gare Sèvres Rive Gauche ,then bus 469 direction Porte des Hauts-de-Seine,stop/ arrêt Les
Etangs or stop/Arrêt gare Versailles Chantier then taxi as above

Beautiful rooms and restaurant decorated with paintings by Corot, and les caves des artistes, in the basement , where I like the most , just perfect. Also, a wonderful Spa Caudelie in house.

Camille Corot, painter forerunner of the Impressionists at age 21 when his parents buy 15 km from Paris a mansion where they have pleasure to come relax on weekend. Throughout his life, the painter will remain faithful to this small town of Ville-d'Avray, dedicating more than 250 paintings. Green water ponds, water lilies bordering a large place and the juxtaposition of a painting of the first half of the nineteenth century with a contemporary photo is amazingly confusing similarity.

It is without doubt one of the reasons for the immediate of the Etangs de Corot charm, complex hotelier of 42 rooms, sumptuous spa and gourmet restaurants, which hides well his game behind ancient facade, crunching the gravel of his whereabouts and its wrought-iron chairs, rusty just what he needed. The painter and his time sowed a few pebbles of a century gone without that nostalgia submerge you, a challenge.

Rooms play the card of decoration of charm where the chairs canework dialogue with the chintz of the flowered curtains. A trunk in wood, a top of bed in white damask, bathroom fitting vintage, not question hitting the eye. So far, instead is obsolete and it is there that the spa dedicated to the wine comes into play. Men will be happy to learn that a «ritual of the sommelier» is dedicated to them, is a half-day beauty that opens with a "barrel bath" and continues on a massage with the 'winemaker stick', where the technical tools how interfere in the world of luxury.

Magical indeed.

the Caves des Artistes is a great place for a nice meal or a glass of wine with someone you love. The closeness to Paris is an add on as well as to Versailles.

old Holiday Inn Disneyland: Magic Circus Hotel

When I go here usually stayed with family nearby, but one year (think it was 2006) was able to get a great rate from the Holiday Inn Disneyland (now call the Magic Circus Hotel); so we came in for the splash.

The hotel service was typical Disney property ,very nice, with all amenities and near the parks with bus transport to them. It has a circus theme ambiance all around with pool tables and game machines, as well as a very nice dining area.

Just with the game room and the indoor heated pool complex is worth coming over, recommended especially those with families enfants to junior kids. Free shuttle bus makes a regular run between the hotel and Disneyland® Paris Parks, Disney® Village and Marne-la-Vallée Chessy RER/TGV/Eurostar station. Its the No 54 bus running between 6h30 and 11h30 daily.

the proximity to the parks, the excellent rate was able to get and the most was the indoor pool complex , superb...free car parking lol!

Franklin D. Roosevelt Hotel: A small but clean and well maintained hotel

This hotel is a small hotel, there's really nothing fancy about it. It was relatively well maintained and housekeeping was quite good and prompt. The breakfast was included in our package and it was a basic buffet breakfast with cold cut meats, hot items such as scrambled eggs and potato with sauted tomato sauce and sausage. It also has cereals and fruits. The price was Euro 23, which is really overpriced, if I didn't have this included in our package, even if you pay me Euro 23, I would not have breakfast at this hotel because it was not worth the price for this meal. The airconditioning unit was never on the week we were there from 25 April to 2 May 2008. Thank goodness the weather was cool enough during that time in Paris not to have the airconditioning on. I suppose they are saving energy at the expense of the patrons. Also be very wary and extra cautious to leaving your money in their safe. We make it a point to lock the combination safe everyday but when we checked our cash supply the following morning, we were missing 5 US$100 bills. This is despite the fact that we were 100% sure the safe was locked when we left in the morning for our sight seeing around Paris. However, the smaller US$ denominations of a couple of 20s, 10s, 5s and a few 1 dollar bills though were surprisingly not taken. The only explanation is the hotel has the capability of bypassing our combination lock and opening the safe, which we think is what happened. The lesson here is check your money in the safe in the morning before you go out to do your touristy things and check it again when you return at the end of the day. Despite this, we tried not to get too upset about it and enjoyed our visit to Paris. If asked if I would stay in this hotel again? I would respond by saying I probably would but if its the summer, I'll ask them if the airconditioning is working, otherwise, if its the colder months, then it's not a big deal if the unit is off.

The convenience and proximity to the grandest avenue in Paris the Champs Elysees and the public transportation is a definite advantage. We also felt safe in the immediate neighborhood of this hotel, even during our midnight and 1:00AM walks.

This camping site also offer a luxury mobile homes for incase you dont have a caravan or a tent, it is very comfortable and you can rent it for a very reasonable price. And if you do have one, there are also spaces for caravans and a separated for tents.
Sanitary facilities are ample and meet all modern demands. There is a supermarket, if you wish to cook.

There are a large heated swimming pool, playground for children, video games and miniature golf and etc...etc..
There are enough things to do and experience.Moreever the surroundings are so enticing, exciting and very attractive.
Outside the caravan and camp site there are so much to see.From riding to walking or just parading in the picturesque village of Crécy la Chapelle, there are many little shops. And for the 'real golf players there is Golf de la Brie, it is a very nicely laid out par 74 eighteen hole golf course.
I'm guarantees everyone would have fun and have splendid holidays.

If you wish to visit Disneyland or to go to Paris.For both destination Le soleil de crécy is the ideal operating base.Not only figuratively, because of it's position, but especially literally.You can virtually board the bus right by your caravan door, taking you to Disneyland and futhermore, you can change busses there and travel to Paris.And in the evening you take the bus home!.

Hotel: Hotel Richelieu

For those Budget minded, it is a good option. Check-in Lobby is on the 1st floor ( our 2nd floor) & the elevator is very small only large enough for 1 and bags. So its easier to take the stairs and send the bags up the elevator. We did not use the Breakfast area so can not input anything in that area. Hotel was okay except it the rooms faces the street so was very noisy at night with the cars & scooters
