About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

We are making Paris feel like home, one guest at a time...

Why stay in a cramped hotel room when you can have all the comforts of home for less?

Charming, historic one bedroom apartment that has recently been completely renovated with love and care. Traditional Parisian stone-faced building dating from the 1920's with fireplaces in both the living room and bedroom. The apartment is located on the 1st floor (European), one short flight up. There is no elevator, but the one flight of stairs is generally manageable for those with slightly restricted mobility.

We are minutes away from the famous rue Daguerre, a typical market street packed with fresh fruit and vegetable stands, butchers, chocolate shops, restaurants, flower shops and bakeries. The local market takes place on Tuesday and Friday mornings. Lots of guidebooks and local information are at your disposal during your stay.

Some ideas for your stay: Our ideal day starts with a stop at our favorite local bakery for some warm pains au chocolat. We then head over to one the local markets to check out the fresh offers for the day. The afternoon is spent exploring one of the numerous close by attractions, Jardin du Luxembourg, Notre Dame, Opera, or the Catacombs or a visit to one of Paris' wonderful museums: Musee D'Orsay, the Pompidou Centre, or the Musee Carnavalet. In the evening enjoy some of the best and most affordable French restaurants the city has to offer or pop out to see an opera or a concert in one of Paris' many exceptional venues.

Truly your home away from home in Paris with all amenities included: Fully equipped kitchen, Internet access with WiFi, Cable TV, Electric kettle, hairdryer, telephone, stereo with CD player, etc. The apartment even offers a full library of both French and English books, including numerous guidebooks to the city and novels to unwind with at the end of the day.

Just steps to the Metro (Lines four and six) and the RER-B. Excellent direct access for Charles de Gaulle (Roissy) and Orly airports.

About The Owner

We are a French-American couple that moved to the US in 2007. We wanted to be able to raise our 2 children in a bi-cultural family so we've held onto our wonderful apartment to allow us to 'go back home' once a year.

This is a photo of us on a week-end in Rome.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 1999

Why The Owner chose Petit-Montrouge

The apartment has an interesting history. For years it served as an archive room for the bank below. In 2000, the apartment was gutted and renovated. The location is fabulous for transport links (both within Paris and also to both CDG and Orly airports). This is a truly French neighborhood. The apartment is comfortable, quiet and has plenty of light.

What makes this apartment unique

We love the authentic feel of the neighborhood. While we invite guests to come and stay in our home when we are not there, this apartment truly is our home in Paris. We love to hear about guests finding a resource on our bookshelves or the fabulous meals they have created in our kitchen. It makes us feel as though we are not so far away.

The apartment is wonderful too in that is is peaceful, a respite from a busy visitor's day and yet everything one could need is within a few minutes walk.

Well-located and incredibly comfortable home base!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely apartment was a great place for my mom and me as we explored Paris for five days. It is conveniently located in a quiet, residential neighborhood close to the metro and lots of great restaurants. There's a grocery store across the street and a great bakery just down the street. The location allowed us to experience the city as a local. We appreciated that the apartment was on the first floor, had comfortable beds, a dining table where we ate a number of meals, a computer with reliable internet access, and everything else we could have needed (fully equipped kitchen, hair dryer, etc). Tara was incredibly helpful, and very responsive. We appreciated being able to share their home, and would happily return!

This nice apartment is located near bus and metro and has an abundance of restaurants within walking distance. I would recommend it for anyone looking in this area!

Bed is comfortable. Kitchen well equipped and bath had everything we needed. Adequate storage space too in this nicely decorated apartment.

A Perfect Choice

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in Tara & Pierre-Olivier's apartment for a month & I can't recommend it highly enough. It's comfortable, quiet, very well outfitted, & seems larger than in the photos. It's clearly a beloved home. There's plenty of storage space so that you can unpack completely & really settle in. I appreciated the well-equipped kitchen (especially the oven), & I cooked & baked often. The long dining table was perfect for eating & working, & the wifi was flawless. I felt completely at home, & also very safe, which was important to me as a woman traveling alone. The building is quite lovely & well maintained, with pretty stained glass windows in the stairwells. Check-in was smooth & easy despite the fact that my arrival was delayed for several hours due to a cancelled flight. The neighborhood is lively, low-key, & super-convenient. There is a wealth of good food shopping nearby, including a very nice twice-weekly market near the mairie. There are also many, many restaurants & cafes in the neighborhood. The area has a good local feel, with very few tourists. Metro & bus stops are very close, as is public transportation to the airports. It was an easy walk with a rolling suitcase to the RER B to CDG at Denfert-Rochereau (easier than all the stairs when transferring from the metro). I often went to Parc Montsouris, a 10-15 minute walk from the apartment. Thank you, Tara & Pierre-Olivier, for sharing your lovely home. I would love to stay here again!

Excellnt Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this excellent apartment for five nights during February, 2017 and were very happy with the accommodations, especially the well-equipped kitchen, which is quite suitable for the preparation of light meals based on the superbly fresh food available in nearby outdoor markets. The living-dining room area provided plenty of space eating, reading, etc. The spacious bedroom was quite to our liking, as was the excellent library it contained (many travel books, history books, and thrillers in English). The bathroom was large by French standards with plenty of hot water and excellent water pressure. Towels were provided in magnificent abundance. Even though the apartment is located on the first (US second) floor, there was never intrusive noise from the street. Indeed the first-floor location became more-and-more appreciated as the days wore on, reducing our stair-climbing requirement. I should add that Tara and Pierre, the owners, are extremely helpful and accommodating.

Fabulous Location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is well located close to everything. The bus and metro are a short walk away. Wonderful shopping for everything you need right around the corner. The apartment is located in a beautiful building and you will fell like a true "Parisienne" when you return home each day! The apartment is perfect for two, well equipped and a comfortable bed. We have already recommended it to our friends who live around the corner for any of their overflow guests. We hope to return again to Chez Pierre.

Wonderful option during your stay in Paris

  • 5 of 5

The location of Chez Pierre is perfect. In the neighborhood itself, we had fantastic meals and convenient access to the Metro (and Metro is by far the best way to explore Paris). We were always happy to get away from the crowded tourist areas to come back home, which typically took around 15 minutes. The apartment itself is cozy, well-furnished and has all the conveniences needed, especially in terms of a nice kitchen and a washing machine. We would highly recommend a stay at Chez Pierre!!!!
