About the property

60 m2 country house, enclosed by a family garden,a heaven in the heart of Paris

Nestled in a lovely old Paris neighbourhood, walking distance from the Eiffel Tower, you will feel right at home as you enter our family house and traverse the garden to access this private and quiet little heaven. You will rest assured, knowing that your hostess is close at hand to ensure your stay is flawless. 'Little Cottage' offers the rare luxury of an independent, private house in Paris coupled with peace of mind- a friendly presence is just across the garden, happy to answer your questions and help in any way.

Description of the property: 'Little Cottage' is laid out on two stories and tastefully appointed to reflect the elegance and cosy atmosphere of the setting,with terracotta tiles and oak wooden floors, antique furniture and beautiful XVIII century style fabrics. Both bedrooms have lovely, south facing garden views and are conceived to create an ambiance for tranquillity and rest.

There is a fully tiled and newly refurbished bathroom with WC on each floor.

The ground floor dining room is full of light, with French doors opening onto a sunny, wooden dining terrace. Here is an ideal spot for breakfast in the morning sunshine, with a lovely perspective onto a landscaped flower garden dotted with flowering rose laurels.

A small, modern kitchen gives on to the dining room and is equipped with all you need to prepare breakfast or simple meals.

The house also offers the convenience of a laundry room with washing machine, clothes dryer, iron and iron board.

Around the corner: Our guests in 'Little Cottage' enjoy a rare isle of quietness in a lively, upscale, residential neighbourhood. You can live like a Parisian, exploring the multitude of excellent bakeries, cafes, restaurants and wine boutiques, as well as cinemas and fashionable clothing shops. traditional, picturesque street markets are around the corner, offering best quality regional products. High-end supermarkets such as the Monoprix are nearby as well.

We are a pleasant walking distance from the Eiffel Tower and Champ de Mars gardens, Seine River, Trocadero, even the Invalides.

A perfect location for exploring Paris : The Metro is 1 minute walk from our door, and with 3 subways lines (6, 10, 12) at your disposition, you can get to all of Paris easily. 'Little Cottage' is a cosy starting point indeed for exploring all the attractions of Paris - away from the bustling tourists crowds, in a privileged environment, but only 15 minutes via metro to the Louvre Museum,Place de la Concorde, Champs-Elysées, Montmartre and the Sacré-Coeur of Paris.

Best of all, after a long day of sightseeing, how happy you will feel to come home and enjoy the kind of rest you need to make your vacation a real success.

Very quiet and lovely neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying in the Little Cottage. It was super quiet at night and Dominique was very accommodating! It really is a gem. And we loved the neighborhood. I will say though - for American travelers - I would not really say that the cottage has A/C. There is one portable AC unit that you can use either upstairs or downstairs, but you cannot cool off both rooms at the same time. If you are traveling any time other than July or August, this should not be an issue. We really appreciated the use of a washer and dryer while we were staying there with our two children, ages 6 and 8. I would definitely stay there again and hope to sometime soon! Thanks Dominique!

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Simply the best! We loved our time at the cottage. Our family of four were so blessed to stay in this slice of Parisian heaven! We can't say enough about Dominique and Jacques! They were generous with their time and attention. We truly felt like they welcomed each of us wholeheartedly! They were friendly and very informative with recommendations for everything we needed to know for our 5 day stay! The cottage was very comfortable for the four of us-Mom, Dad and two grown children. The cottage was very clean, safe, charming and felt like home. The surrounding neighborhood was lovely and convenient with nearby restaurants, grocery stores, bakery, wine shop and cheese shop. We miss it already and can't wait to go back! Thank you Dominique and Jacques for your hospitality!

my 3rd time in paris & the best ever because of the graciousness of dominique & family. the cottage is a haven after being out & about. the metro is a short quick walk from the cottage PLUS very close by there are wonderful bakeries, butcher shops where one can buy delicious homemade entrees & salads, grocery stores & restaurants....the 9 days just were not enough! i could go on & on about this area....2-3 times a week street markets, the ponte de vanves flea market on saturdays/sundays. dominique, her husband & handsome son speak fluent english , are a wealth of knowledge & are always willing to help in any way. sleeping was good as the matresses were just the right firmness for us plus at night one could smell the jasmine drifting into the 3 french doors that i kept open all night as there was total privacy & safely. there is no doubt in my mind that i will be back!

Charming serene "cottage" in the middle of Paris.

  • 5 of 5

Very lovely 1 bedroom on second floor with pullout sofa in living room. Hosts are extremely accommodating and helpful with recommendations for things to do. We enjoyed coming home at the end of a tiring day of sightseeing with our "emporter" (take away) dinner and dine in the lovely garden with a glass of wine.

Paris living

  • 5 of 5

We returned our rental to Charles De Gaulle, and then boarded the Metro for a long 2 hr nightmare. We were given the wrong instructions on line changes, by a person, working for the Metro. I had messaged Dominique that we would be arriving between 4 - 5 pm. we didn't arrive until 7.

The cottage was superb. We would go and get fresh baguettes, croissants, and quiche every morning. Have our tea and coffee and then head out for the sights. Having the Paris Metro App is the way to go. You provide the start and stop and it'll tell you where to change and what line to take, if necessary.

Dominique was very informative and helpful. Her recommendation for the patisserie was spot on. We had tried two that were close by but a little "stretch of the legs" was well worth it. During our travels around the city, we would eat at local cafe's using Google Maps for recommendations. We were never disappointed.

The surrounding neighborhood is filled with shops, cafe's, small convenience stores, open air markets, fresh produce stores, butchers, fish mongers. There are large stores that carry grocery, liquor, and household items. It's a chain and goes by the name of Franprix.

During all of our travels in France, we met only kind and helpful people. Sometimes they would offer to help with directions or even with our luggage. Nobody was disrespectful or upset that we didn't speak French.
