Bill, I attempted to make plans to visit Paris last Christmas thinking the same thing and was a bit surprised. Rates at about ten hotels I checked were actually higher at Christmas than the rest of Dec, Jan or Feb by quite a bit and many were requiring minimum stays. I checked apartments, and they were even worse. Not to discourage you, since I am only one person, but just a slight warning. Rudy in coastal NC, USA
