Overview

About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-6)

You will feel so much 'at home' in our beautiful Petite Maison, on the easily accessible ground floor of a lovely 17th century building, situated in one of Paris' most charming neighborhoods. Our little 'quartier' is featured in Frommer's 'Memorable Walks in Paris;' it is truly one of the most historic, lovingly preserved areas in the entire city.

Our historic two-bedroom, two-bath 820 s.f. pied a terre is tucked away on a serene side street; you'll awaken to the sounds of birds chirping in our private garden, along with the bells of the magnificent cathedral of Notre Dame, which appears like magic when you turn out of our front door.

Our 'little house' in the city (so-named by some Parisian friends) is just steps from the bouquinistes (booksellers) which line the Seine, and a five minute walk to the famous Place St. Michel and the excitement of the Latin Quarter. Within minutes you can see the Sorbonne, the Roman baths and Unicorn Tapestries at the Cluny Museum, take a quick stroll to Ile St. Louis, visit the Conciergerie where Marie Antoinette spent her waning days, or take in a fabulous classical concert at the famous St. Chappelle built by Louis the IX.

Our lovely neighborhood is very French, a rarified historic district filled with galleries, artisans, restaurants and unique shops. The wonderful open air market on Place Maubert is a three-minute walk, as is the Metro and a plethora of bakeries, wine purveyors and a fabulous cheese shop.

The apartment itself is exceedingly comfortable and handsomely furnished. It features two quiet bedrooms (one upstairs, and one down), each with a tres chic new en suite bathroom -- perfect for two couples or a family. Both can be made up with two twins, or one king sized bed. A comfortable day bed in the living room accommodates a fifth adult guest, or two small children. The spacious living room is a perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine with friends and recount the day's adventures.

The recently renovated, gorgeous kitchen equipped with high end European appliances is fully equipped to whip up some French cuisine using your finds from the market at Place Maubert. Petite Maison's unique architectural features include classic 'tommettes' (old tiles) on the floor and a barrel vaulted brick ceiling in the living room. A striking iron chandelier illuminates the large dining table, where you can spread out your repast, and bask in the light from two walls of windows. We are also blessed with a private garden, a lovely place to enjoy a morning coffee during the warm summer months, and a working fireplace to keep you cozy on winter nights.

Our really wonderful Paris-based manager is just a phone call away should an unexpected problem arise.She is also available to assist with restaurant, event or tour reservations, as well as to arrange transportation. A personalized 'users guide' filled with our personal recommendations will help make the most of your sojourn in our favorite city in the world. French themed movies; a CD player with music library and travel guides are also on hand should you decide to enjoy a quiet evening 'chez nous.'

Please note that our cancellation policy is 90 DAYS IN ADVANCE OF OCCUPANCY - VRBO/HomeAway doesn't allow this option in their system, but in our experience, since European travelers normally plan/book their vacations far in advance, this period of time is required in order to re-book our rental. Your 50% deposit (required to reserve dates) is fully refundable up to 90 days before the date you arrive; once the balance is paid the reservation is non-refundable. We will process any deposit refunds outside of the VRBO system. We do recommend trip insurance to protect against any unforeseen circumstances. While you may drop your bags as early as 10 am, check in time is 3 pm if another guest is checking out the morning of your arrival; check-out is 10 am. Please keep these times in mind when make travel arrangements. We of course do our best to get you in as early as possible, but the only way to guarantee an early check in is to reserve the night prior to arrival.

If you are looking for lovely, comfortable and quiet accommodations just steps away from all the best Paris has to offer, look no further than Petite Maison. Please let us know if you have any questions, we would love to welcome you to Petite Maison!

Ideal location and perfect apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Great location -- perfect for being able to get around the city. Loved the special touches at Petite Maison --complimentary robes, coffee/tea and best of all Michelle's travel notes! Great vacation! Highly recommend Petite Maison.

Lovely apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in Paris and this apartment was perfect. We were greeted upon arrival and given a very thorough tour and instructions on everything. Nicely decorated, high end finishes, comfortable beds, safe building. Michelle communicated with me several times before the trip and provided lots of helpful information. Couldn't have asked for more. Thanks!

Beautiful apartment with a fantastic location. Worked well with our 3 teens.

  • 5 of 5

Owner and manger very organized, helpful and responsive. Loved the area and very much appreciated all of the recommendations given to us. Kids very bummed when we had to leave. Comfortable beds, washer and dryer worked perfectly and good functioning kitchen. We made some nice breakfasts and had a fun night in (great movie selection!) one night. If in Paris again, will definitely plan to stay here.

Location, location, location!

  • 5 of 5

For our family of 6 (grandparents, parents, & kids) this was the perfect apartment in terms of location and charm. It was lovingly remodeled and decorated and could not have been more convenient. Notre Dame is literally a half block away and food markets are a block the other way. If you want to cook in, it is very doable but restaurants abound. Michelle, the manager, was more than accommodating and prompt in answering any questions. She arranged for a driver to pick us up at the airport (highly recommend) and deliver us to the train station when leaving. The neighborhood is incredibly quiet despite nearby street sounds and traffic. Try the pizza place down the street to the left. Prior to booking, the owner was very helpful about answering any questions and all transactions were a snap. Do be aware that French AC is not like American-these are old buildings and hard to cool. But we were there in mid July and managed just fine. I can't say enough about how happy we were with the "Petit Maison".

Just right

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 4 visiting from the US. We had a very nice stay at the Petite Mason. The apartment was clean, comfortable, has new appliances, plenty of Nespresso capsules, washer and dryer for laundry, and everything works. We were even given a bottle of champagne as a welcome gift. The surrounding neighborhood is amazing with everything you could want within easy walking distance--boulangerie, grocery store, patisserie, many great restaurants, Notre Dame, metro and RER stops, etc. The managers were very helpful, kept in close touch with us by email and phone as needed, arranged transport to the airport when we were heading home. All in all a perfect stay, my wife loved it, said if she was going to have an apartment in Paris, this is exactly what she would want. So there you go. Nothing more we could have asked for. Thanks!

Additional information about rental rates

Please note: We have a 90-day cancellation policy (50% is due at time of booking to reserve, which is fully refundable up to 90-days prior to occupancy). The balance is due at the 90-mark and at that time the reservation becomes non-refundable unless we can successfully rebook your dates. With a European property it is extremely difficult to rebook a cancelled reservation with less notice, we thank you for your understanding. Please ignore any conflicting messages from VRBO/HomeAway.

Owner's Cancellation Policy

  • 100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
