Both bedrooms have lovely, south facing garden views and are conceived to create an ambiance for tranquillity and rest.

There is a fully tiled and newly refurbished bathroom with WC on each floor.

The ground floor dining room is full of light, with French doors opening onto a sunny, wooden dining terrace. Here is an ideal spot for breakfast in the morning sunshine, with a lovely perspective onto a landscaped flower garden dotted with flowering rose laurels.

A small, modern kitchen gives on to the dining room and is equipped with all you need to prepare breakfast or simple meals.

The house also offers the convenience of a laundry room with washing machine, clothes dryer, iron and iron board.

Around the corner: Our guests in 'Little Cottage' enjoy a rare isle of quietness in a lively, upscale, residential neighbourhood. You can live like a Parisian, exploring the multitude of excellent bakeries, cafes, restaurants and wine boutiques, as well as cinemas and fashionable clothing shops. traditional, picturesque street markets are around the corner, offering best quality regional products. High-end supermarkets such as the Monoprix are nearby as well.

We are a pleasant walking distance from the Eiffel Tower and Champ de Mars gardens, Seine River, Trocadero, even the Invalides.

A perfect location for exploring Paris : The Metro is 1 minute walk from our door, and with 3 subways lines (6, 10, 12) at your disposition, you can get to all of Paris easily.

Sheer happiness

  • 5 of 5

Cannot express how wonderful "The Little Cottage" is. It's located in center city and you first arrive to door on the busy street your a little cautious, you are given a code or can use the call button to be let in. Then you find yourself out of the hustle of the street, go through the courtyard and through the owners wooden gate.

From there the owner will meet you and take you out to the cottage. You come through Dominique's home and out to the backyard. The cottage is adorable and beautiful all at the same time. There was four of us and we had plenty of space, we even made dinner in one night. The attached patio extends the living space and quickly became a favorite place to have a glass of wine and make plans for the day.

You are in walking distance to great shopping, dining and the Eiffle tower.

For those traveling for the first time to France the location cannot be beat but not just because of its city location but the safety the cottage offers being tucked behind the owners home, it's like staying in your own private spot in Paris. I would love to stay there again.

Thank you to Dominique & family for being so kind, helpful and welcoming. You made our trip so wonderful!!!

Private, quiet cottage in center of Paris

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the little cottage for 1 week. It was everything we expected and more. Our host could not have been more gracious! Dominique gave us a personal tour and map of the neighborhood, helped us to purchase Metro tickets, arranged a taxi for our return to the airport, and more. We had everything we needed in the cottage and wish we could have stayed longer. It was the perfect oasis to return to every evening after our adventures. When we return to Paris someday, we hope to stay at the cottage again!

Better than a hotel

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here! It was pricey but worth it. Our hosts, Dominique and Jacques, were welcoming and helpful. Their thoughtfulness was so touching. The cottage was safe/secure, quiet, clean, warm, classy and homey. We loved coming here at the end of busy tour days. There were so many nice restaurants to walk to. The convenience store across the street had the best freshly-squeezed orange juice we ever had. A metro station was very close by. Our daughters got so attached to this place.

A beautiful escape at the end of the day!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in "The Cottage" was wonderful. Dominique and her family were delightful and helped us at each step of the way. After a busy day of sightseeing, it was a treat to come home to the quiet garden right in the middle of the city. The location is close to transportation services and provided easy access to the rest of the city. The beds are very comfortable and although one of the bathrooms is extremely small, the luxury of having an outside patio and garden made it the PREFECT retreat! Thank you Dominique for making our stay one that we will remember for a lifetime!

Quiet, conveniently located, beautiful garden in the middle of the city. Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

A little bit of Paradise in the middle of Paris. 1 short block from Metro 12 - the BEST line for all the main sites. Walking distance to the Eiffel Tower. And Dominique could not have been more helpful and welcoming. Quiet, hidden back and away from Traffic Lots of restaurants and bars and shopping minutes away..

I highly recommend her charming cottage.

Unique Paris Experience

  • 5 of 5

This cottage in central Paris is handy to the metro with easy access to all tourist areas. Places to eat and drink are everywhere and the area felt really safe. Dominique is a wonderful and welcoming host and can answer any queries you may have. The setup is a bit different in that you access your cottage by walking through Dominique's place but this proved easy and also gave you a place away from the street. The cottage itself is lovely and quaint and well kept - the 2 bathrooms are small but no different to our previous French stays. The living areas especially downstairs are spacious and I'm sure in Summer the outside courtyard would be fantastic.
