Little Cottage Paris Review -

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Little Cottage September 22-27, 2017 and it was fabulous. The cottage is adorable and so comfortable. It was totally adequate for our two couples and the location can't be beat. It is only 2 blocks to the Metro which is so convenient and there are many little shops and cafes within easy walking distance. Dominique, the owner, was so pleasant and helpful. She is the best! She met us on our arrival and gave us all kinds of recommendations on how to navigate around Paris as well as suggestions for restaurants. She even made arrangements for a cab for our return to the airport and was there with us to make sure the taxi came on time and gave him the directions. We would recommend the cottage and the owners without hesitation. It was a 5 star plus stay! Linda and Ray Shipley, Oregon and Bert and Marti Sampson, Maine USA

Wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

The best part of Little Cottage was our host, Dominique! She took the time to show us around the neighborhood, pointing out her favorite cheese shop, bakeries and restaurants. She helped us with mapping out points of interest, made dinner reservations and arranged for transportation to the airport for us. The location is wonderful. Within walking distance of the Eiffel Tower and other attractions. In fact, we walked all over the city in lieu of taking the metro. The cottage was small but adequate. The downstairs bathroom/shower is very small, difficult for my 6'3" husband to maneuver. We did have a problem with hot water for showers for 4 people and internet service was spotty. An extra roll of toilet paper and extra trash bags would have been helpful, however, the excellent location and wonderful host still warrants a 5 star rating.

Idyllic

  • 5 of 5

Staying at the "little cottage" provided a home away from home. This beautifully decorated house offers comfort and privacy. The living room, the breakfast nook, the bedroom, TV area, laundry room, patio, garden and two bathrooms create a feeling of spaciousness in the heart of Paris. Dominique, the owner, makes every effort to ensure her guests have what they need. Loved it!!! Hope to return!!!

Peaceful, Convenient & Beautiful Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Unbelievable that this cottage could be even more amazing than it looks in photos, but it is! A quiet, private and restful respite right in the heart of the city with amazing cheese shop, fresh baguettes, award-winning pastries, restaurants, great coffee and more all within a couple blocks. We loved the private garden and proximity to Eiffel Tower and metro. Hosts are very warm, welcoming, responsive & helpful. Comfortable beds, well-maintained, clean and oveflowing with character - we can't wait to go back!
