About MICHELE COUTTS
I am half French half English. Originally from London, I have now lived in France for over thirty years. I live only a few minutes away from the apartment and I will be happy to help you settle in personally upon your arrival. We are situated just 20 minutes away from the Champs Elysées and a perfect base for visiting in and around Paris. You will be able to relax here and recharge your batteries away from the bustle of the inner city. I look forward to welcoming you in the near future. Bon voyage!

Perfect location, beautiful place and a wonderful owner
Michelle was absolutely wonderful, the house was immaculate and very convenient. Located in such a beautiful small town where you have access to restaurants, supermarket and all the necessities. We will definitely stay there again!
2-Level Apartment Lacks Nothing
Beautiful, immaculate apartment on outskirts of Paris w/closet space.
Feels like living in France, not just Paris.
Fully outfitted kitchen, farmers' market twice weekly.
Michele is nearby and very helpful.
Michele was so welcoming and the house was great. Clean, it had everything we needed. Quiet and secluded so we could relax, but still a 20 minute on a train to Paris. I highly recommend.
Thank you for your kind review. It was a pleasure to welcome you and your family to stay. I hope to be able to welcome you again.
Excellent in every way.

A Great Place To Stay When Touring around Paris
This was a really lovely place to stay. The maisonette was spotless and equipped with everything needed for our visit, plus lots of considerate extras.
Michéle was a great host, offering advice both before and during our stay. Some very thoughtful provisions awaited us on our arrival, and when we asked for some old towels to use for swimming she bought additional towels immediately. The local swimming pool, meanwhile, was a huge hit with the children, including outdoor and indoor pools and even a sprinkler playground.
Maisons Laffitte was really convenient to reach by car and the house was only a short walk to station (with RER links directly with Metro 1 line or with Gare St Lazare).
It was lovely to be able to sit outside in our private garden after a day's touring around the city.
Thank you for taking time to write a review for my property. I'm very glad that you enjoyed your stay and hope to be able to welcome you and your family again.
Our stay at La maison du Parc
We had a wonderful stay at La maison du Parc! For anyone wanting to stay near Paris, especially with a car, there is absolutely nowhere better. The car is totally safe in remote controlled security gates but we hardly used it at all as the train service to Paris is exceptional. The station is a few minutes walk away and in 20 minutes you emerge from the metro immediately in front of the Arc de Triomphe! We purchased the Navigo pass which allows unlimited travel to, from and within Paris - even to Versailles which is in the same zone. The house itself is spotlessly clean with everything you could possibly need - the TV even has a full Freeview package. There is no need to drive to a supermarket as the Casino is within easy walking distance and has everything you could want. Maisons Laffitte itself is a safe and affluent suburb of Paris with lovely walks and a fascinating château. There are several restaurants and excellent delicatessens plus of course the all important bakers' shops. Michèle our bi-lingual host was extremely pleasant and lives close by should you need her. We cannot praise this property and its location too highly and can't wait to return next year!
Thank you for your very positive review. I look forward to welcoming you both again next year.

Maisons Laffitte is a pretty town, lying between the banks of the Seine and the forest of St Germain en Laye. It boasts a wide range of bars, cafés, restaurants and shops, an arts cinema with frequent screenings of films in English and a concert hall. Tennis, horse riding, golf and a public swimming pool are all within a 10 minute walk of the house which is located in the former royal park of the château, offering splendid walks (and runs!) or cycle rides. Unlimited travel passes to Paris cost from around €10 (daily) to €35 (weekly).
