The space

Lovely airy room in a large typical Parisian Haussmanian flat (135m2), located 200metres from the Parc Monceau and 5 minutes walk to the Champs Elysees. We have several metro stops nearby (Etoile, Courcelles, St. Philippe du Roule).The neighbourhood is very residential, quiet on weekends, but very well located for visiting all of Paris or just chilling in the nearby parks. The room and bathroom were entirely repainted in April 2013. We have a big kitchen and lounge as well 2 other bedrooms.

The room that we're renting out gives onto a very quiet courtyard, has lots of cupboard space, has a private ensuite shower and private toilet. There is also a flat screen television and kettle.

We're a Franco- British family with an 12 year old daughter as well as a lovely cat. Quiet and relaxing atmosphere. Guests can benefit if they wish to have their own entrance on the 3rd floor. Wifi, clean linen & towels are included in the price. Washer & dryer available on request also.

The flat is located in the prestigious 8th Arrondissement of Paris. A fifteen to twenty minute walk will bring you to the"Faubourg Saint-Honoré" haute couture shopping street (past the Elysée Palace) and the "Boulevard Haussmann", in the Opera Garnier area, which is world renown for the "Printemps" and "Galeries Lafayette" Departement Stores , the largest beauty departments in the world, 45,000 square metres of shopping dedicated to fashion & luxury brands, as well as other labels such as GAP, H&M etc....Opéra being the biggest shopping area in Paris! If you're too tired to walk home, you can either catch a direct bus or metro home, it won't take you more than 15 minutes at the most! There are 2 Starbucks' restaurants nearby for the coffee addicts.

From the appartment, you can easily visit nearby attractions such as The Champs Elysees, the Arc of Triomphe, the Park Monceau, the Jacquemart André & Nissim de Commando museums all located only a few minutes away. You are spoilt for choice in terms of classical performances, you have the Opera Garnier not far or the "Salle Pleyel" which is a 5-6 minutes walk.

This area is also a great venue to go shopping, having a drink in a fancy lounge bar- the Hilton hotel is around the corner, they have a lovely lounge bar. There is also the "Ternes" area a 10 minutes walk away, which offers a wide variety of shops and restaurants. Other trendy bars & nightclubs are all very near. There are many cinemas with films in English on the Champs Elysées also. A visit to the Louvre museum is direct by metro (about 15 minutes door to door) followed by a picninc or romantic walk through the Tuileries gardens. The Eiffel Tower is about 20 minutes away by direct metro (line 6).

Once you have covered all of the neighbourhood, you can attack the rest of Paris easily from our place! There is a variety of different public transportation options to take you in 10 - 15 minutes to Ile de la Cité - Ile Saint-Louis, Châtelet Les Halles, the Marais District or Latin quarter, Montmartre etc...amongst other options! Further out Versailles and Disneyland are also direct from Charles de Gaulle Etoile with the RER.

So much to discover, we hope you enjoy your stay in Paris!

Very welcoming host; safe location; excellent value. It was quite convenient to have a private bathroom and entrance. The single bed was extremely comfortable, and there was a tea kettle and tea in the room. (There's also a TV and heater, but I didn't use either.) It's not luxurious but it is quite comfortable. Kathleen and her daughter are welcoming and easy to talk to but you have as much privacy as you like. Tip: When you leave the building, turn left! That is where the grocery store, the best bakeries and cafes, the metro, and the wonderful Parc Monceau are.

Happy's place is absolutely perfect for a home base from which to explore Paris. There are very useful maps as well as a folder with directions to various metro and bus stops. For tired travelers a tea kettle and collection of teas and an ensuite shower and private toilet across from the room are a great comfort. The hostess was very gracious and gladly answered all my various questions.

If you are traveling to Paris for the first time and a little nervous about where to stay - this is your place! I stayed here a few days to get my "bearings" around the city and I was immediately made comfortable by Kathleen. I speak very little French, and it was great to stay with her, ask questions, and feel my nervousness dissipate! She was very helpful on a few things to check out in the neighborhood and was very thorough explaining the check-in process and how to move around the city. As for the rental - this is an old and beautiful building, and was a perfect introduction to Paris. I loved being able to open the old shutters in the morning and look onto the courtyard and up at the sky, and sip coffee made from a kettle in my own room. Do note that the apartment is on the 3rd floor, but there IS a small lift if you can't take the stairs. Thank you so much, Kathleen! I hope to be back soon :)

Kathleen was super helpful giving me tips of how to get around and how to get to her place from the airport - I was a little nervous coming to Paris by myself for the first time but she made it so easy! Her place is very central and a short walk to the metro and Champs-Elysee with shops and cafes around the corner. Although I didn't see much of Kathleen she was so helpful, she wasn't home when I arrived but left a detailed list of instructions and tips for me. I would defiantly recommend staying here. It's in a great location, I felt really safe. I wish I could have stayed there longer! Would highly recommend :)
