TWO BEDROOM COUNTRY HOUSE, FIFTEEN MINUTES WALK FROM THE EIFFEL TOWER

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.

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.

ABSOLUTELY CHARMING!

  • 5 of 5
Being new to the "online rental" process, I was nervous about making my first reservation. All it took was a conversation with Dominique to know that we were in good hands! From that inital phone call to the final goodbye, we were treated as welcome guests.

Highly recommended!

AMAZING, QUIET, PEACEFUL, RELAXING.

  • 5 of 5
If you want to visit Paris and have a retreat "away" from the tourist areas, this is the place to stay. Very close by subway or 15 minute walk to most attractions, yet nestled away from it all. Host were great giving advise on local stores and markets to purchase items for the kitchen and also told us about Lafourchette where you can eat at very nice restaurants (for us Senderens) for a 30% discount.

We felt like Parisians visiting the local markets and stores and finding fresh food for our dinners.

When we visit Paris again, this is where we will stay.

WHAT A WONDERFUL PROPERTY!

  • 5 of 5
Basically everything that has been said in previous reviews about how good this accommodation is - is true!

To access the cottage you walk off the main street (you need a pin number to get in), then walk through a grey glass door which takes you into a sort of garden area (also a bin area for the building), then you see the owners house straight ahead. It is a lovely three storey house which you walk through each time you want to access the cottage. You go downstairs and through their living room and out the back sliding doors and you see the cottage. A lovely winding path through the garden leads the way to a little slice of piece and quiet in the middle of Paris.

The house feels very french, has a lovely friendly feel and has a sunny aspect. The beds (main bedroom and sofa bed ) are very comfortable. The kitchen is fairly well set up so you can cook meals but it is small (not unusual in Paris though!). We managed to cook evening meals in there each night because we had young children (especially after a long day of sightseeing). The food shops - lots of bakeries, butchers and supermarkets (mono prix) are very close by and are very good. The bakery which has one best croissant in Paris is around the corner and is wonderful - the owner will give you a map and explain - it also has delicious bread too.

The owners and their children are very friendly and helpful. It was like being in a bed and breakfast with all the assistance you needed but with the privacy of your own cottage. And it was great to have the garden space where our children could run around safely.

I really appreciated the efforts of the owners in organising a taxi with childseats to go to the airport and making sure the taxi came. And for organising babysitting so we could have a night out from the kids.

Thank you for a really lovely stay - we will be returning when we come back to Paris.

COZY COTTAGE COMFORT IN THE HEART OF PARIS!

  • 5 of 5
This lovely cottage and the wonderful hosts truly exceeded our expectations! The cottage was clean and well-appointed with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The gracious owners were easily accessible for any questions we had as we set out each day, and always offered helpful tips. The real benefit of this property was the ability to step-out of a quiet, private residence and into a Parisian community. Very cool! After returning from a day of sightseeing, we enjoyed coming "home" to enjoy the cafes, restaurants and shopping that the locals use. We were really able to truly immerse ourselves into the Paris culture. The tourist areas begin just a short walk away with the Metro nearby and easy to use. Basically, one price ( currently 1.80 Euros) for any Paris destination. On our bigger outings, we would stop by a local boulangerie for a delicious box lunch (choice of sandwich on baguette, dessert & drink) to bring along. It's a great time saver when you're trying to see as much as possible in one day. We certainly hope to return again one day for another perfect vacation . . . Bon Voyage!
