Nestled in a lovely old Paris neighbourhood, walking distance from the Eiffel Tower, you will feel right at home as you enter our family house and traverse the garden to access this private and quiet little heaven. You will rest assured, knowing that your hostess is close at hand to ensure your stay is flawless.

Description of the property: 'Little Cottage' is laid out on two stories and tastefully appointed to reflect the elegance and cosy atmosphere of the setting,with terracotta tiles and oak wooden floors, antique furniture and beautiful XVIII century style fabrics. 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. 'Little Cottage' is a cosy starting point indeed for exploring all the attractions of Paris - away from the bustling tourists crowds, in a privileged environment, but only 15 minutes via metro to the Louvre Museum,Place de la Concorde, Champs-Elysées, Montmartre and the Sacré-Coeur of Paris.

Best of all, after a long day of sightseeing, how happy you will feel to come home and enjoy the kind of rest you need to make your vacation a real success.

  • 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.

Home Sweet Home in Paris

  • 5 of 5

My sister, a friend, and I stayed at the little cottage for 4 nights. It was our first time visiting Paris and we wanted a nice place to stay without breaking our budget. Being in our early twenties, there were few nice and affordable options. After searching through a million apartment rentals, I came across this little cottage and it was just perfect!

Dominique and her family were wonderful hosts! Communication was fast and easy. We felt at home right away. Dominique was there upon our arrival to welcome us at the door. She explained how everything worked, provided us with maps and recommendations, and showed us the best places to go in the neighborhood. Unlike other apartment rental agencies who hand you the keys and send you on your way, Dominique made us feel like her guests.

As for the cottage, it is as charming and cozy as the pictures suggest. It was a welcome sight after a very long flight. 2 large bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and a kitchen all overlooking a small garden. It was clean and comfortable and everything we were hoping for!

If you want a perfect place to stay in Paris, look no further than the little cottage!

Owner's Response: That is so nice of you to have written those words. I am very touched. To hear that young people too could be " happy guests of the cottage "is a good point and the fact that you will keep nice memories of your first stay in Paris is the most important for me. I wish the three of you a very nice winter back home and I hope to welcome you again in the near future ! Kind regards Dominique

Great way to see Paris!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this cottage with another couple for just less than a week. It worked out excellently for the four of us. We could use the kitchen for informal meals and the bedrooms were fine. The biggest asset of staying here was the welcoming attitude of the hostess ( Dominique) and host and their family. All of them provided invaluable information for us as we used their help to navigate the Paris transportation system for the first time. It was a convenient walk to any type of store, restaurant, post office or either of two metro stops. All this for a very reasonable price. We are grateful for their hospitality and would certainly use it again.

GM,
