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 was for me a dream come true, it had everything I love.

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 down the street.

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!

ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!!!

  • 5 of 5

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. And...do speak with Marie about her lovely customized tours - she took us for a spectacular day to nearby Versailles! Unforgettable!

Absolutely Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment has everything you could possibly need while in Paris, especially the owner - Marie and her husband, Pascal. Pascal meets you at the airport and takes you to the apartment. Then Marie takes you on a tour of the surrounding area to familiarize you with the sites, cafes, and shops. It was just wonderful! We also availed ourselves to several of Marie's tours and we HIGHLY recommend them. Marie is a virtual encyclopedia of information and tidbits about everything! Marie and Pascal are wonderful company and made our trip very memorable. The apartment exceeded our expectations and the location was great! It is easy to see now how quickly Marie's apartment schedule fills up - she offers a beautiful apartment along with PREMIER service, literally no detail is left out. We will never stay anywhere else and can't wait to take more of Marie's tours!

Wish I Had Stayed Longer

  • 5 of 5

I only stayed in Paris two nights, as I was wrapping up a holiday with family in Germany, but wish I would have stayed longer. I can't begin to say enough wonderful things about Marie and her space. When I arrived in Paris, she met me at the train station and brought me to the apartment. I really appreciated this, as I was traveling alone and am somewhat unfamiliar with Paris. The apartment, while small (it was perfect for me), was absolutely wonderful!. The location was excellent. The apartment was extremely clean, and Marie made sure I had everything I needed. Another great perk with staying there, is that Marie also offers a variety of tours of Paris. Since I only had one full day in the city, I decided to take advantage of her offer to walk around with me. I must say, I couldn't have asked for a more kind and knowledgeable companion. She guided me effortlessly around Paris. I was able to see so much more with her help, than if I had tried navigating myself around this amazing city. I truly enjoyed spending time with her, and feel as if I now have a new friend. Needless to say, I was very sad to leave. I will most definitely be returning! As some of the reviews have said, five stars are not enough.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

From the initial booking to saying goodbye at the bus, Marie and Pascal were attentive to my every need! I simply cannot imagine better people. The apartment is spotless, well located and boasts two balconies and a fabulous Boulevard and skyline view. Marie is a gracious tour guide and gave me advice on transportation, shopping, tours and food. ( I am a vegetarian, and the building also has a health food market on the ground level.) If you are seeking the perfect Paris apartment with hosts that provide extraordinary service, this is the place for you to stay. Five stars are not enough!

Trip of a Lifetime!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from our trip to Paris. From start to finish our vacation was wonderful thanks to Marie and Pascal who own and rent their apartment on 85 Haussmann in Paris. The apartment is conveniently located near the bus and Metro. When we arrived, Pascal met us at the airport and accompanied us by bus to the apartment which is in a safe, beautiful area. Marie met us there and gave us a tour of the apartment which was small but clean and modern and had all the amenities we needed for a comfortable stay. Marie offers day trips to all the sights around Paris and if you rent the apartment, you can take some or all of them with her. She has a passion for Paris and vast knowledge about its history. Not knowing the language, we chose to tour with her most of our days there. Each day was a new adventure and as we walked the streets, we felt like we were Marie's friends and not tourists. Pascal joined us on the the night tour by driving to all of the famous illuminated landmarks where we were able to take pictures and admire the romantic scenery. We also took a day tour of the Champagne area where Pascal drove and Marie explained everything about the region. Both the Champagne area and Reims were very beautiful and interesting. The restaurant they chose for lunch was perfect and the food was delicious. Every restaurant Marie chose or suggested was reasonably priced and because I am a vegetarian, she made sure they offered choices for me. Even though Marie and Pascal had to leave Paris because of a last minute family situation, they left us in the competent hands of a friend of the family. Their friend Laetitia took us to Versailles on the train and was a wealth of information about the area. She made sure that our trip was perfect from beginning to end and sought to cater to our every need. It was fun spending the day with her and learning all of the exciting facts about Marie Antoinette and Louis XVI! Laetitia also helped us reschedule a boat cruise that we missed and made sure that we were able to enjoy it on our final night in Paris. The day that we had to depart for home, Laetitia came to the apartment and accompanied us to the bus to the airport. She made sure we got the tickets we needed and that we were on the bus on time for our flight. We are so happy to have met this lovely family and their friend. They went above and beyond our expectations to make this a trip of a lifetime!
