A real find! Well appointed. All amenities. Comfortable. Close to everything. Wonderful hosts!

  • 5 of 5

This darling apartment epitomizes Paris! Well located in a seventeenth century building, the hosts have gone out of their way to think of your comfort & provide amenities, everything a traveler would need. The apartment is minutes from the Pantheon. It is just steps from one of the most popular streets in Paris with a variety of restaurants & shops available ranging from restaurants & clothing to wines, cheeses, groceries, pharmacies, etc. The street is great for people watching or listening to street musicians. Yet, being just off the street & with a private courtyard access, it is quiet & lends to serene living. The pull out bed is as comfortable as a custom mattress (maybe it is a custom mattress) & is a stylish sofa when not in use as a bed. The bathroom is updated & modern. The kitchen, while tiny, serves the purpose & again, the hosts have thought of you by providing coffee, teas & wines! for your convenience & enjoyment.

The hosts will meet you personally & explain the workings of the apartment. They are also knowledgeable about the area & provide much helpful information & tips, right down to knowing reliable services such as taxi or specialty store locations. They are also only a phone call or text away & are most happy to be of help.

Overall, this "my little home" is a gem, not to be missed. I know I will be back.

Feel like a local in an established Paris neighborhood. Easy access to cafes & major attractions.

  • 4 of 5

Staying in My Little Home in Paris can make you feel like a local in a very traditional feeling little apartment and is very affordable. It has everything you need and is handy to cafes and all the major Paris attractions and metro stops. The bed is a fold-out but is very comfortable. If you must have modern luxury and lots of space, then this is not for you. But if you want simple comfort, cooking facilities, a "Parisienne" atmosphere and neighborhood, within walking distance to many attractions, then My Little Home in Paris is for you. In addition to the wonderful atmosphere of this little apartment in the Latin district, close to the Pantheon and Ernest Hemingway's Paris apartment and cafes, the owners are wonderful people who are very eager to help you with making your way around Paris and making your stay more enjoyable. We thoroughly enjoyed it.

The Best Little Home in Paris

  • 5 of 5

I have now been staying at 'My Little Home in Paris' annually for well over five years and don't see any reason that this will change. Sandy and Philippe have done a wonderful job of finishing the apartment with absolutely everything a vacationer/traveler would need. How wonderful to wake up on your first morning in Paris with a coffee pot and coffee at the ready!

Seriously, the area is great and so, so central to everything you would need in Paris and the apartment is so, so quiet. While right off the rue 'Mouf' MLHP is an oasis after spending a day walking/sightseeing the in the City of Lights.

This is not to forget that Sandy and Philippe are marvelous hosts - right down to meeting guests for an afternoon drink and get together. What a wonderful way to make strangers feel welcome in the neighborhood.

Wonderful stay in Paris at MLHP- I hope for many, many more.
