Why Ashley Maddox chose Les Halles

Our Parisian home is in a sensational location in the absolute center of the city.

The majesty of the Louvre, the grandeur of the Place des Victoires, the glory of the 16th century Église de Saint-Eustache, the beauty of the 17th century gardens of the Palais Royal, and the charm of River Seine are all within five minutes by foot.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Ashley,

Thanks again for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful apartment in Paris. It is lovely--perfect, in fact-- and we had a most enjoyable stay.... although much too short. We hope to return and you will be the first person we contact when that happens.

With best wishes,

The property description says it all: Sunny, Chic and Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great extended long weekend stay here with friends. The apartment was wonderfully modern, and right in the centre of Paris. It's perfect for friends because there is a big living room to lounge in, and has two equally sized bedrooms with king size beds. Storage is good, and the two bathrooms are thoroughly modern (although only one is en suite). The kitchen is also nice, equipped with most of what you might need, and with quality items. The apartment has wonderfully big windows letting in lots of bright light — and importantly in the summer — a nice breeze. The only downside is that when those windows are open, it can be very noisy. But I think this should be expected in central Paris. Besides, the bedrooms are at the back, facing into a quiet courtyard.

We are already trying to plan our return!

Even better than the photos!

  • 5 of 5

I took a once in a lifetime trip woth my mom to Paris, and i wanted to book a special place for us. Shes not easy to please, and weary of rentals. From the moment we walked in every aspect of the apartment was impressive, the size, the character, the bathrooms and the cleanliness. It is run very professionally. If there is one fault i would ask them to add an alple tv so we could log into our netflix, but beyond that, its perfection.

Stunning and the Most Perfect Location.

  • 5 of 5

Stunning is what this apartment is. The overall feel is airy, chic and so inviting to relax after a day on foot visiting Paris. The apartment is well equipped with all of the necessities to make it feel like your home. The 2 bedrooms are situated in the back away from street noise. The beds and linen are very comfortable. The apartment is simply amazing and would stay there again.

Did I mention the location, it's perfect to visit the Louvre, Notre-Dame etc. There is a Michelin restaurant next door, a few blocks away is Pizzeria Popolare , the best pizza but beware the line up starts 30 minutes before they open. Grocery store is across the street, the bakery is down the street and the subway is a few block away. Everything is very convenient to enjoy your stay in Paris.

This is the most spectacular place I have stayed in all of Europe. I am very picky about the places I stay, and this met all of my expectations! No detail is spared in this apartment, from the beautiful decor to the fresh cut flowers to the computer for use of the guests. We felt safe. The apartment is in an absolutely splendid location as it is near the main attractions in Paris; you can easily walk to the Louvre (10 min walk) or you can even walk further to Eiffel Tower (~30 min). There is a wonderful grocery store across the street. We would also recommend Loupe, which is across the street. I will probably be back to this place next time I'm in Paris! We appreciated having Laurence come and show us everything, and Ashley is very responsive. Please also look up condo when it was on HGTV international house hunters! Have a fund stay!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our recent stay at Ashley's apartment! Myself, my husband and two little boys couldn't have been happier. The location is great. The apartment itself has all the amenities one could hope for and it is immaculate. Beds are super plush and comfy and bathrooms were spacious and beautiful. Check in and check out was a pleasure and Laurence was soo helpful. We had a great time and would love to stay here again when visiting Paris.

Perfect for a week in Paris!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful place for me, my husband, and our 22 year old son. Terrific location, easy to get to, we felt like we were part of a vibrant neighborhood. Easy walk to the Seine, the Louvre, and the metro. This apartment has all the comforts of home, and was well equipped. We would highly recommend!
