Thinking of bringing your kids along on a city break but not sure where to go? There's only one place for it: Paris.

Sleeping up to six guests, this family home set close to the Champs-Élysées – one of the world's most famous shopping streets – ticks all the boxes. All three bedrooms have their own bathroom, providing privacy for all guests (something that will undoubtedly be appreciated by any teenagers in your party). One of the bedrooms is particularly ideally suited for children with a double bed, bunk beds and a child’s cot. The home has two living areas, one more formal and one more laidback, meaning the kids can gather round the TV while you enjoy some rather more sophisticated adult conversation. When it comes to the best location for an Airbnb in Paris for families, this home takes the metaphorical (chocolate) biscuit. Take your sweet-toothed children to nearby Maison du Chocolat and enjoy a range of delectable chocolates and pastries. Finding someone to watch over kids whilst you are having a meal in one of the Michelin star restaurants won’t be a problem either, as this home offers an exclusive babysitting service.

The modern open-plan kitchen and dining area, perfect for dinners en famille is a particular plus, while there are toys on offer for the younger family members.
