What's on in Paris - Sports events - 2016 Tour de France Finish

Published on July 9, 2016 by Ralph and Karen

On Sunday, July 24 the Tour will end in Paris http://www.letour.com/le-tour/2016/us/stage-21.html. For the 1st time since 1984 the final stage will run from the Château de Chantilly, north of Paris to the Arc de Triomphe. This grand finale is always worth watching even if you are not a cycling fan – it’s the end of a long [ 3 week] and hard event and although the winner may already be decided, the final circuits around the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs-Elysées will be quite the spectacle.

The long line of riders start their circuit in central Paris along the Rue de Rivoli, past the Place de Concorde then on towards the Arc de Triomphe via the Champs-Elysées. They actually finish half way up the 'Champs' then continue to do several laps. The route goes around the 'Arc', back down the 'Champs' along the Quai des Tuileries to the Louvre before doubling back to the Place de la Concorde and along the 'Champs' to the 'Arc'. Usually several laps are taken before the conclusion and celebrations along the Champs – see http://bit.ly/29sEfaR

Hello! We are Ralph and Karen, an Anglo-American couple who fell in love with Paris and France over 20 years ago. Work-related trips brought us here, but we kept coming back for holidays, then extended visits, and then… In 2005, we decided nothing was stopping us from buying a place of our own in Paris. Lots of research, learning, and many kilometers of sneaker-rubber later, we put our house in the United States on the market. It sold in 10 days, and we found our apartment in Montmartre two months later. After a massive, year-long renovation project and its many challenges, we hit our biggest bump yet. As it turned out, we had to stay based in the US after all. Our lovingly remodeled apartment in Paris became a place where we returned only for short visits. In 2008, we started renting to guests—travelers like we once were (we always preferred apartments over expensive, cramped hotels). And the rest, as they say, is history. Le Trésor de Montmartre has proved quite popular, to the extent that we have trouble finding a break in the booking calendar to stay there ourselves! In the midst of this, we found Nice. After several holidays in and around Nice, we thought, why not buy a pied-à-terre in the area? Despite the challenges involved in renovating from afar—which we knew very well at that point—we jumped in again in late 2010. After another renovation, another year, and hundreds more gray hairs between us, we added Le Trésor de Nice to our rental portfolio. A year so so later we picked up 3 other apartment to manage. We hope you find the properties inviting, and hope even more that you will come see them for yourselves! Please get in touch with questions, or to book your stay at one of our apartments. We’d be happy to share our insider knowledge of these places we love so much.
