About Marie

••• Marie and Pascal •••

a dynamic, efficient and available team to help you tailor the trip of your dreams.

They provide assistance before your trip to help you plan, they help you 24/24 and 7/7 through a cell phone they provide while you are in Paris.

Marie is a retired college professor and Pascal works at CDG.

They help you with arrivals and departures.

Marie provides personalized assistance for the discovery of Paris and of other places around Paris.

She assists you at night for your safety if needed.

If you are concerned about SAFETY, no worries with Parisians at your side.

Marie purchased this studio in 1977

Why Marie chose 8th Arrondissement Champs Elysees

I fell in love with the area and the apartment in 1977. It is VERY safe.

It was for me a dream come true, it had everything I love. I love the XIX century impressionists, Monet was born nearby, they all lived in our neighborhood.

It was perfectly situated, in a busy area which is great but the apartment is nevertheless very QUIET.

The 2 balconies are perfect to enjoy sunsets and sunrises, for a drink or just sit outside after your day out.

It is so romantic at sunset and so incredibly Parisian chic.

I love to walk in Paris and it is within walking distance of everything anyone loves about Paris like the Champs Elysees, the Opera house, famous concert halls, restaurants and shows.

Shopping is great too at the Printemps and Galeries Lafayette right on Haussmann Bd, only minutes away.

Being close to the American Embassy and the French Presidential Palace, the area is VERY SAFE.

What makes this studio unique

The unique benefits are better described by my guests:

'We're giving Marie and Pascal five stars only because it won't let us give them six. The apartment is beautiful, on one of the prettiest streets in Paris, within walking distance to just about everything you want to see in the City of Light. And the customer service was incredible. They answered all our questions before we arrived, met us at the airport and escorted us to the property. We opted for the walking tours with Marie and she showed us all over the beautiful city and offered some great tips - like the secret entrance to the Louvre where you don't have to stand in line. She knows Paris and is happy to share her knowledge and enthusiasm. She even gave us a cell phone that we could use to call if we had any questions or problems. We truly cannot imagine a better experience ...'

Thank you Robert from Charleston, North Carolina to describe so well the unique benefits of Haussmann.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Sejour mémorable pour notre lune de miel!"

En octobre dernier, nous avons passé notre lune de miel sur une croisière sur la méditerranée et nous avons décidé d'ajouter quelques jours à Paris au passage. Et c'était tellement une bonne idée!! Non seulement nous avons découvert 2 merveilleuses personnes Marie et Pascal, mais nous avons également visité la Ville lumière sous un angle qu'aucune compagnie de tours organisés n'aurait pu nous offrir.

Nous n'avions pas beaucoup de temps, mais Marie a su adapter les escapades selon nos goûts et selon le temps disponible. L'aide à l'aéroport et avec les valises a été très appréciée. L'appartement est très bien situé et près de tout. Il est donc très facile de s'y promener.

Toutes les petites attentions portées par Marie et Pascal font en sorte qu'on a envie d'y retourner chaque année! Si vous planifiez un séjour à Paris, vous devez absolument réserver Haussmann!

Paris Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I can only echo everything else already said. The reviews are accurate. The place is wonderful and you are immersed in the true Paris during your stay. Just open the windows, sit on the balcony and breathe it in while watching a sunset. The secret, however, is the team of Marie and Pascal. They treat you like family more than guests. They have a great sense of when to offer some more ideas and when to just let things chill. They also sense your physical limits and never push. Marie is in incredible teacher of all things French and Paris, from art history to political history to current local politics, and it simply flows from her like an enjoyable story. It seems there is nothing she does not know about Paris without ever looking on Google.

The Perfect Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

I’m not sure what I can say that hasn’t already been said. Marie and pascal are quite simply- amazing! From the moment you arrive- all the way until the second you leave- they make sure your trip is perfect. Pascal greets you at the airport (with a sign that has your name- so VIP!) and ensures you are on the right bus into the city. Especially coming off of a red eye- he takes all the stress and worry out of arriving into a new country- especially for someone like us who does not speak fluent French. The apartment is very cozy. It has all the amenities you need (including a kitchen that allows you to eat in and save some money if you want) and a very comfortable queen size bed (so important after a full day of walking around Paris!). The apartment is restricted entry by an access code so it feels extremely safe. It is quiet, and Marie and Pascal are fantastic when it comes to cleanliness. They think of everything- they have business cards of all the local places to eat, maps to show you around the city, and they even provide a cell phone so you can contact them anytime. This is especially nice because they are always available for any question you might have. They also offer many tours- I highly recommend you take advantage of this. Her tours are amazing and worth every euro. The Paris by night tour is an absolute must! My husband and I were first time Paris visitors- and we took advantage of many of her tours at the beginning of our trip. She showed us how to take advantage of the bus system, showed us around, and by the second half of our trip- we were navigating ourselves through Paris quite efficiently on our own! They are incredibly friendly hosts, and we could not have been more pleased with our vacation. Marie and Pascal genuinely love Paris, and it shows. They love meeting new people and ensuring their trip is amazing- and they have certainly perfected their craft. Look no further- you cannot find a better place to stay, or better people to show you Paris!

Lovely Paris pied-a-terre and much more

  • 5 of 5

This well-appointed pied-a-terre proved to be perfect for our four-day stay in Paris. The place is immaculate, contains all amenities, is nicely furnished and graced with two balconies overlooking other buildings of Haussmann design. It is in a great location with easy bus and metro access and shops and cafes close by. We particularly enjoyed visiting the exquisite nearby Musée Jacquemart-André, a mansion museum.

The owners deserve these excellent ratings. Marie thought of every detail a guest might want to know, filling a bookcase with travel guides and binders with instructions and information about local restaurants, etc. Pascal actually met us at Gare de Lyon, leading the way by bus to the building and serving as an impromptu guide. (We learned they do private, customized tours, something we would like to do in the future.) At the end of our stay, Pascal also accompanied us back to the train station. In all our travels, we’ve never met such gracious and delightful hosts. Their knowledge of France is extensive and entertaining.

A dream came true.

  • 5 of 5

My wife rented this appartment 3 years before and met great friends called Marie and Pascal. When I met Pascal at the airport and took the bus with us, I knew we were going to have a pleasant trip in France. Marie was waiting for us at the appartment and as soon we arrived, she showed us everything we wanted to find Near the appartment. We went everywhere with this passionate couple , Right and Left Banks of Paris, Champagne, château de Versailles ... We even left Paris for 3 night to visit the nicest areas and villages in Normandy. They make your dreams come true, we had the previlege to sleep at Mont Saint-Michel, another night in a Castle and met the owners for breakfast. They made us dream for the Time we were in Paris. Many thanks to our friends Marie andy Pascal and hope to see you soon. From Montreal, Québec.

Arlette & Gilbert.

Enough cannot be said about the apartment and more so the owner Marie. The apartment is perfect in a perfect location. You are within walking distance from absolutely everything: sites, restaurants, transportation! The apartment, though small, is so well appointed and Marie has added everything that anyone would think to need. The two balconies add extra room and were a glorious place to sit in the mid-afternoon. Marie's attention to detail is amazing and she makes you feel so welcome and at home. We took the opportunity to have Marie take us on her practical tour. It is so worth it!!!!! She shows you all the ins and outs of the immediate area of the apartment. I would definitely recommend her practical tour for anyone's first trip to Paris. Enough cannot be said except - stay at Marie's and tour with Marie. You will be so happy you did - WE CERTAINLY WERE!!!! Thank you Marie!

Perfect: Location, Accommodations, Amenities

  • 5 of 5

"Perfect" is the word that immediately comes to mind with regard to this fabulous accommodation! Perfect accommodation, perfect location, and perfect hostess (and host).

This ideally situated apartment is in the very heart of Paris, only steps to historic sites and to groceries, pharmacies, bakeries, and a host of sundry shops. Upon arrival, the lovely Marie and Pascal greeted us at the train station with sincere warmth and enthusiasm. The flat is quite simply perfect - bright, clean, well-stocked with ample kitchen utensils and linens. The location provides the perfect starting point for outings, both for sightseeing or for enjoying the charming nightlife in Paris - in easily walkable area with plenty of shopping and restaurants from which to choose. Exceptionally close to the Metro (outside the entrance) and buses. This was our second stay at Haussmann 85 and we felt at home, both at the flat and in the neighborhood. We cannot wait to return for our third stay to this prefect flat to again drink in the delights of Paris. speak with Marie about her lovely customized tours - she took us for a spectacular day to nearby Versailles! Unforgettable!
