Overview

15th Arrondissement Vaugirard House Rental Photos and Description

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.

the very best Paris has to offer

  • 5 of 5

I would recommend a stay with Dominque and her husband Jacques in the "Little Cottage" to a friend in a heartbeat (in fact, I already have several times!) -- what a lovely place to stay & rest! My family (2 adults and 2 toddlers) had a wonderful time staying here, and Dominque and Jacques are two of the loveliest people you could ever hope to meet -- full of wonderful suggestions for things to do, places to shop, etc. in the area without being intrusive at all, and very caring & attentive in making sure that everything was just perfect for us in the cottage. It truly felt like staying with dear friends.

The garden is a lovely place to sit and have a relaxing picnic-style meal after having shopped at all the lovely local stores for cheese, fruit, baguettes, etc! The local metro stop (Volontaires) is literally less than a block away, and you are just steps across from a Franprix (small size grocery store), several pastry/bread shops, restaurants, etc., although once have gone through to the Little Cottage & garden, you can no longer hear any street noise. It's really the best of both worlds! A few blocks away are many more market-style stores and a larger grocery store (Monoprix).

If we ever come back to Paris, this is certainly where we will stay! Thank you Dominque and Jacques for the best vacation we have ever had -- we are so grateful for your wonderful hospitality!

Owner's Response: Dear Family Your nice review gives us another opportunity to tell you how wonderful it was to welcome you in the little cottage ! we were happy to assist you as it was your first time in Paris and we were amazed the way you were able to handle two toddlers all around visiting Versailles, Vaux le Vicomte, Montmartre, the Arc de Triomphe ....all by public transport . Nevertheless the unfriendly weather (we will all remember this 1st of May week), you made the best of it ! We will be thrilled to welcome you again and all your friends will be "bienvenue" ! Kind Regards Dominique and Jacques

Countryside in Paris

  • 5 of 5

We (two couples) had a wonderful stay at Dominique's little cottage. She was very helpful in showing us where to shop and where to park the car. She and her familly gave us the impression like staying with friends.

The cottage is situated in the families private garden. Once you were there nothing could be heard of the cities noises. It was perfect for us two couples. Everything was clean and tidy. The kitchen and the dining room was sufficient for breakfast for the four of us. The weather was nice enough even for a dinner in the garden.

All in all: The place is very recommendable.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Heidrun for your nice words. That was a treat to have the four of you in the little cottage, happy with everything and enjoying every moment! You must definitely choose May/June for your next visit in order to enjoy the garden with all the flowers blossoming ! I wish you a very nice summer and hope to see you soon in our little paradise ! Kind Regards Dominique de Taisne

Oasis in the 15th!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful, serene treasure in the heart of Paris! Just as described - clean, charming, quiet, and thoughtfully put together cottage in a superb location run by truly kind and helpful hosts. The kitchenette was well-stocked, the bathrooms (2!) updated and with all the conveniences necessary, comfortable beds, and lovely indoor and outdoor seating areas. Volontaires Metro is just a block away, the Velib bikesharing service a half-block, Champ de Mars a 15 minute walk, and the neighborhood offers many great choices for artisan bakeries, bistros, grocery shopping, business needs, etc. Dominique and her family were warm and welcoming without ever being intrusive - can't say enough about what a pleasure it was to find this little gem tucked away in the middle of busy, bustling Paris. We'll be back!

Dreamy Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was the most wonderful and memorable vacation we have taken! The hosts, Dominique and Jacques, were so welcoming and helpful with finding our way around. The cottage and surrounding landscape is adorable and very well kept. After touring the city all day, this was a welcome respite. Very quiet, comfortable beds. We traveled with our two teenagers and they loved the cottage (probably because of the WiFi)! A pizza place was right next door and that became a nice treat on some late nights! We would dine al fresco on the patio, as pictured. Our favorite place for lunch/dinner was Roi du Cafe, just a short walk from the cottage. Would highly recommend the Fat Tire Bike Tours. We did two of them: evening tour of Paris & Monet's Gardens in Giverney. Both were outstanding! Make sure to enjoy crepes from one of the street vendors. Yum. The cottage is within walking distance of many things and just one block from the subway, which we used frequently. You will not be disappointed with the accommodations. First class. Loved everything about it.

Absolutely OUTSTANDING!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The four of us gave this wonderful little cottage in the middle of Paris a "FIVE STAR RATING" not only for its location, but the OUTSTANDING HOSPITALITY and assistance that the owners provide you with from the time you arrive until the time that you depart. YOU CANNOT ASK FOR ANYTHING BETTER WHILE STAYING IN PARIS!!!!!!! This is where you find peace and quiet, security, and shop where the local Parisians shop. Here you can find everything from delicious pastries, wines, meats, fruits, clothes, jewelry, and the list just goes on and on... More importantly, you are just minutes away from the metro and all of the major attractions that Paris has to offer! The next time we return to Paris, this is where we intend to stay. It is ideally suited for two couples! The four of us all agreed that words cannot express enough about how much we enjoyed our stay in this wonderful little cottage, the location, and most of all, the OUTSTANDING HOSPITALITY OF DOMINIQUE AND HER HUSBAND, JACQUES!!!!!! They are absolutely terrific in every sense of the word!!!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much to the four of you for your very kind words ! We were so happy to have you and enjoyed your presence as much as you enjoyed your stay in Paris !! Our door will always be open to you! We wish you could have stayed a little longer to see all the garden flowers in full blossom. We hope you took back a little bit of Paris to Alaska and North Carolina and we cannot wait till your next visit ! Many thanks and much warmth Dominique and Jacques

a very special place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The little cottage exceeded expectations in every way. I agree with all that has been said in other reviews-- it is a lovely as the photos, the hosts are wonderfully helpful and friendly (giving the best of both the B&B and private apartment experience) and the location is a perfect combination of easy access to the sites and the feeling of living in an upscale but village-like Parisian neighborhood. Just perfect. It made my vacation.
