Paris living

  • 5 of 5

We returned our rental to Charles De Gaulle, and then boarded the Metro for a long 2 hr nightmare. We were given the wrong instructions on line changes, by a person, working for the Metro. I had messaged Dominique that we would be arriving between 4 - 5 pm. we didn't arrive until 7.

The cottage was superb. We would go and get fresh baguettes, croissants, and quiche every morning. Have our tea and coffee and then head out for the sights. Having the Paris Metro App is the way to go. You provide the start and stop and it'll tell you where to change and what line to take, if necessary.

Dominique was very informative and helpful. Her recommendation for the patisserie was spot on. We had tried two that were close by but a little "stretch of the legs" was well worth it. During our travels around the city, we would eat at local cafe's using Google Maps for recommendations. We were never disappointed.

The surrounding neighborhood is filled with shops, cafe's, small convenience stores, open air markets, fresh produce stores, butchers, fish mongers. There are large stores that carry grocery, liquor, and household items. It's a chain and goes by the name of Franprix.

During all of our travels in France, we met only kind and helpful people. Sometimes they would offer to help with directions or even with our luggage. Nobody was disrespectful or upset that we didn't speak French.

A perfect Paris get away

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is wonderful as are the people who own it. A very special experience. Perfect for people who want to be in a French neighborhood and a bit away from tourist central.

Like staying with family

What a delightful hideaway in the middle of Paris. Dominique and her family are absolutely charming. The house that is provided is the perfect size for a holiday getaway or even an extended stay. We had a great time. Everything was perfect. We look forward to returning. Dominique has now become a friend. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay.

Wonderful cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Little Cottage for a week and enjoyed every minute. It's exactly as pictured, with two great bedrooms and a wonderful backyard. Dominique is a great host and helped us find the little shops and bakeries nearby that make you feel right at home (or the equivalent of home if you don't have a croissant shop within a minute from your bedroom). I highly recommend that others visit here, and I would stay at the Little Cottage again!

Dominique and her family are an incredibly classy group... and it resonated throughout the property and our stay. My husband and I stayed here with another couple for our 10th wedding anniversary and were thrilled with the location. A definite repeat stay next time we go to Paris! The cottage was adorable, close to the Metro, included modern amenities, quiet and within walking distance to everything you could need. Wish we could go back tomorrow!

LOVE staying here! ❤️

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here two years ago for a family trip with our teenage children. We enjoyed it so much that we came here again with another couple. The two-story cottage is so charming and comfortable! You cannot beat the location. Many destinations within walking distance plus tha subway is just one block away. The garden-like yard is so private and quiet that you forget you are in the heart of the city! The owners, Dominique and Jacques, are the most gracious people you will ever meet. We had an absolutely wonderful stay, AGAIN!!
