Hello! I am taking my brand new wife to Paris for part of our honeymoon in September. On our honeymoon, she wants to not feel so compelled to SEE, GO, and DO everything. Rather, she wants the easy-going local experience, spending plenty of lazy afternoons lounging in cafes, picnicking along the banks of the Seine, strolling along the streets, poking in and out of shops, etc. Of course she still wants to do SOME of the touristy things (go to the top of the Eiffel Tower, walk through some of the Louvre, etc). Where is the BEST place to stay (looking for at least a 4 star hotel) with great access to the best little cafes and the fun/relaxing parts of Paris, while also maintaining great views and proximity to the major sites and the metro? Should I look closer to the Champs Elysees? The Louvre?
Thanks for any advice you could give.
