During this year’s Raucous Auction to support the Virginia Arts of the Book Center, you have the chance to bid on a one-week vacation in an apartment for two in Paris, France! The quiet ground floor apartment is located in the 17th arrondissement of Paris with easy access to public transportation and plenty of activities available in the neighborhood— shops, restaurants, cafés, and a park in walking distance.
With just a quick ride on the métro, you could take a trip to Champs Elysées which runs from the Place de la Concorde, one of the major public squares in Paris, all the way to the Arc de Triomphe, one of the most famous monuments in Paris. Spend your time exploring gardens and monuments that line the Champs Elysées. After that, the apartment is only six métro stops from Montmartre and a twenty-minute bus ride to the Latin Quarter.
Whether you’re interested in all of Paris’s scenery and historic monuments, or if you’d prefer to stay nearby and enjoy the rich variety of shops and cafés near your apartment, this is the prime location. Visit VABC’s online auction site to learn more about the trip or to make a bid in the online auction. Then, make plans to attend the live auction on November 18 to secure this trip to Paris for two!
