Paris at its best

"Dear Rosa,
At long last I can tell you how we both got on in Paris as per your itinerary. Well, you are superb and we followed it to the letter and it went perfectly - thank you!
Velly restaurant was superb and the food magnificent, varied and market fresh together with being value for money. Fantastic location which we made use of by walking up to the Sacré Coeur that evening after supper. What we loved was to see the fishmongers, boulangerie etc all still open well after 8pm. The French take such pride in their food, even the smallest item.
The Grande Epicerie blew my mind and Fauchon and we had the most wonderful lunch at the Café Du Marché.
I could go on and on but you know what you are talking about and because of you we achieved everything we had hoped for and more.
Most of all we had been to Paris before but stayed around the Champs Elysées and were disillusioned to say the least. This time we saw the real Paris and because of you will return very soon. I'll be in touch....
Thank you again so very much"
