About Ashley Maddox

We are an American / French couple that can't get enough of the magic that is Paris. We spend a few months a year soaking up the city.

Ashley Maddox purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Ashley Maddox chose Les Halles

Our Parisian home is in a sensational location in the absolute center of the city.

The majesty of the Louvre, the grandeur of the Place des Victoires, the glory of the 16th century Église de Saint-Eustache, the beauty of the 17th century gardens of the Palais Royal, and the charm of River Seine are all within five minutes by foot.

What makes this apartment unique

Housed in a classified 18th century, pre-Revolution building, this extraordinary apartment has been fully renovated by its American and French owners and their talented interior designers, the Paris-based ‘double g’. The apartment delivers the comforts and amenities of the best boutique hotels while offering the sophistication, privacy and charm of an authentic Parisian home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Ashley,

Thanks again for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful apartment in Paris. It is lovely--perfect, in fact-- and we had a most enjoyable stay.... although much too short. We hope to return and you will be the first person we contact when that happens.

With best wishes,

Tim OBrien

This is the most spectacular place I have stayed in all of Europe. I am very picky about the places I stay, and this met all of my expectations! No detail is spared in this apartment, from the beautiful decor to the fresh cut flowers to the computer for use of the guests. We felt safe. The apartment is in an absolutely splendid location as it is near the main attractions in Paris; you can easily walk to the Louvre (10 min walk) or you can even walk further to Eiffel Tower (~30 min). There is a wonderful grocery store across the street. We would also recommend Loupe, which is across the street. I will probably be back to this place next time I'm in Paris! We appreciated having Laurence come and show us everything, and Ashley is very responsive. Please also look up condo when it was on HGTV international house hunters! Have a fund stay!

Loved our recent stay at Ashley's apartment! Myself, my husband and two little boys couldn't have been happier. The location is great. The apartment itself has all the amenities one could hope for and it is immaculate. Beds are super plush and comfy and bathrooms were spacious and beautiful. Check in and check out was a pleasure and Laurence was soo helpful. We had a great time and would love to stay here again when visiting Paris.

Perfect for a week in Paris!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful place for me, my husband, and our 22 year old son. Terrific location, easy to get to, we felt like we were part of a vibrant neighborhood. Easy walk to the Seine, the Louvre, and the metro. This apartment has all the comforts of home, and was well equipped. We would highly recommend!

I really have a great time at 7 Rue Coq Heron. Nothing to comment, but perfect. Ashley and Laurence, the owner and manager, make it like home, not just a room in hotel or apartment for the short term rent.

The bookshelf and apartment guide file are full of informations may needed in Paris especially restaurants and bakery, we tried some and all are great. I will definitely be back and stay here again.

Stylish, comfortable and well located apartment

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here and were warm and cozy despite the unusually cold January week. All questions before arrival were quickly answered, we had a smooth time getting into the apartment with a great walk through from the caretaker. She anticipated everything we'd need to know. The "bible" in the apartment helped us find great restaurants, wash some clothes and enjoy our stay. Would definitely book again.

Wonderful location with great acomadations. Clean secure bright comfortable.A second home.

  • 5 of 5

The check in was easy with clear directions given along with a book with printed details. The beds were comfortable. My daughter slept on a pullout in the living room and appreciated the sliding pullout doors that turned the room into a private space. The other beds and bedrooms were comfortable and there was adequate closet space to place our bags. The bathrooms were clean and modernized. The kitchen was also up to date. A computer was provided with wifi connection. The front door was like that of a bank vault. The building were quiet and the elevator was great for getting the bags up to the flat although we usually took the stairs up and down the winding staircase. There was a locked gate to a courtyard followed by a locked door to the building as well. We had no problems with the apartment and plan to stay here next time we are in Paris.
