About Ashley Maddox

We are an American / French couple that can't get enough of the magic that is Paris. We spend a few months a year soaking up the city.

Ashley Maddox purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Ashley Maddox chose 1st Arrondissement Louvre

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.

What makes this apartment unique

Housed in a classified 18th century, pre-Revolution building, this extraordinary apartment has been fully renovated by its American and French owners and their talented interior designers, the Paris-based ‘double g’. The apartment delivers the comforts and amenities of the best boutique hotels while offering the sophistication, privacy and charm of an authentic Parisian home.

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,



Tim OBrien

I have a new home for when in Paris!

  • 5 of 5
I had seen Ashley's Coq Heron apartment on Househunters International and tracked her down through the Internet. I was pleased to hear she was making it available for vacation rental. I go to Paris frequently -- having previously done business with a French company. Previously I always stayed in hotels -- but always well located. 7 Rue Coq Heron is PERFECT in every way. It is beautifully laid out. Amazingly located and has all of the small, but special touches to make your trip and your living just right. This trip was business/pleasure with a girlfriend/business associate and we just loved the accommodations. We were just blocks from the Louvre. Across the street from a grocery. And around the corner from a taxi stand. We had dinners at home after long days of touring -- but had all the amenities to do it right. Both of us will return and rent again and I will also bring my family on a future trip (the layout is perfect for families). I don't give recommendations easily -- having high standards and expectations -- but 7 Coq Heron is truly perfect.

A Wonderful Stay In Paris

  • 5 of 5
Our group of 4 (2 couples in our mid-60s) loved everything about the apartment, stating with it's great central location in the 1st and it's accessability to virtually all the sights of Paris. We walked virtually everywhere, except Versailles. We did take the Batobus and a taxi twice, but that was it.

The apartment was exactly as the pictures depicted it. Checking in went smoothly and it was very well equipped. There was even a welcoming bottle of wine and a vase of fresh flowers. We did have a couple of very minor issues that the owner fixed immediately.

I can't imagine having a better place to stay and I would wholeheartedly recommend this apartment to anyone needing a comfortable and well located apartment in Paris.

One tip: We really wanted see Paris at night, but we didn't like the options. You could choose a dinner cruise followed by a bus tour, which didn't interest us. There is a company called Paris Authentic that offers tours in old Deux Chevaux cars, but they only carry three people, so that didn't work. We decided to take a Rick Steves' tip and hire our own taxi from an English speaking taxi company and pay the meter charge. We made a reservation for the next night and we were picked up at our apartment and the driver took us exactly where we wanted to go...Notre Dame, the Eiffel tower, the Arc de Triomphe, etc. It was perfect and cost less than 60 euros for the 4 of us. The driver let us out at each stop and we took as long as we wanted before moving on.

Beautiful apartment in the perfect locale

  • 5 of 5
We had the loveliest time staying in this impeccable, chic 2 bedroom mere blocks from the Louvre. Five of us (my parents, husband and young daughter) were completely comfortable and loved "coming home" to it each day. The neighborhood is perfectly situated in the center of the city, walking distance to a dozen delicious bakeries and bistros. There's a grocery across the street and pharmacy next door. We will definitely rent it again sometime!

April in Paris - Heaven

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at Ashley's beautiful apartment in the 1st. The apartment was very clean, chic, well-appointed and in a fantastic central location. The decor is very clean and a great mix of original architecture with modern updates. We really appreciated having a washer and dryer, the elevator, the wi-fi and the computer available. The apt was incredibly quiet. Every morning we walked out to Rue Montorgueil just around the corner to get fresh strawberries and fruit and baguette/pain au chocolat from the boulangerie. It was great to be able to have such wonderful shops just a 5 minute walk away. There is also a supermarket right across the street for basic items. We appreciated Laurence, our greeter who met us upon our arrival and who also met us when it was time to check out. Laurence did a great job of walking us through the apt and when it was time to leave she called us a cab for the airport. Ashley put together a great "apartment bible" with everything you could possibily need to know about the apt, the neighborhood etc. She recommended the perfect restaurant for us to eat at for my daughter's 13th bday (Spring). I would definitely recommend any apt. owned by Ashley to anyone as I'm sure it will be very clean, well designed, chic and very well run. We had everything we needed to be very comfortable. My uncle also visited for 2 of the nights and slept on the pull out sofa bed which worked extremely well since there are pocket doors that separate the kitchen from the living room. She he was able to have privacy. It worked extremely well for us. I would be thrilled to go back to this apt in the future.

What you should know first

  • 2 of 5
I communicated back and forth with Ashley (owner) several times and was prompt to give deposit and payment without issue. Upon arrival, no one was there to meet us. We arrived at check-in at 3pm but not able to move in until 7pm. We had 730pm ballet tickets which we were late to, and missing the first part due to the fact the apartment was not cleaned yet. The owner offered to reimburse us one day, and NEVER did it, even though she assured me she would send it, then I emailed six months later and no response. Apartment is okay. Pictures look much better than being there, but it's clean, and a nice building.
