Plan your journey from Paris la Madeleine
To discover the enthralling city of Paris for yourself, simply collect your Avis hire car from la Madeleine in the 8th arrondissement and take to the road.
The 1st arrondissement of Paris is the very centre of the city, and it’s here that the most famous landmarks and attractions are located; the Jardin des Tuileries, the Musée du Louvre and Pont des Arts bridge - adorned with the padlocks of lovers from across the world.
From your rental pick-up point, near L’église de la Madaeleine, the vibrant, bohemian area of Montmartre is easily reached. Part of the northern 18th arrondissement, it was once the hangout of artists from Picasso to Dali, Duchamp to Toulouse-Lautrec. Sitting at its crown is the Sacré-Cœur, an exquisite white church. The famous Moulin Rouge is also located close by.
Spread across the 3rd and 4th arrondissements, the Marais area of Paris is hip and vibrant, filled with vintage shops, flea markets and many trendy bars and cafes. It’s easy to while away an afternoon here as its streets are charmingly medieval and the independent boutiques and second-hand bookshops are unmissable.
Fashionistas rejoice, the Avenue des Champs-Élysées highlights the epitome of Parisian chic, and is easily the city’s most glamorous boulevard. With designer stores and glitzy boutiques, it’s a sophisticated and dazzling place to shop.

Beyond Paris la Madeleine
Sitting almost in the heart of France, Paris is a fantastic starting point for your French road trip. With your Avis hire car, you can tour the countryside, enjoying the delights of its vibrant cities and quaint towns in the utmost comfort and luxury.
Best known as the last home of Vincent van Gogh in the final three months of his life – as well as painters Manet, Cézanne and Renoir – Auvers-sur Oise is just a 45-minute drive north of Paris. Working inexhaustibly, van Gogh created one piece every single day up until his death, many of which take their inspiration from this impeccably pretty village. Whether you visit van Gogh’s attic apartment at Auberge Ravoux, or take a seat at table number five in the restaurant below where he enjoyed his meals, Auvers-sur-Oise is a picture-postcard town with plenty on offer.
Just an hour’s drive south of Paris, the commune of Fontainebleau is larger than Paris itself. Within this lays the forest of Fontainebleau – a former royal hunting ground – and the Château de Fontainebleau. Dating back to the 16th century, this royal palace has been home to the likes of Napoleon and Marie Antoinette, boasting hundreds of decadent rooms and wonderfully preserved artefacts.
The stunning sights of France are only a drive away with your Avis hire car.
