My secret tip when visiting Paris is to base yourself in Enghien Les Bains, beautiful spa resort just eight miles from Paris. You'd be in good company: VIctor Hugo, Alexandre Dumas and Frédéric Chopin all did.
Centre piece is the scenic Lake Enghien, cool and resplendent. Picturesquely dotted around the lake are little shops, hotels, a casino, its theatre - all under a relaxed and charming atmosphere. What better start to the day than to wander leisurely around the glistening lake then select a café for coffee and croissants?
