About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-6)

You will feel so much 'at home' in our beautiful Petite Maison, on the easily accessible ground floor of a lovely 17th century building, situated in one of Paris' most charming neighborhoods. Our little 'quartier' is featured in Frommer's 'Memorable Walks in Paris;' it is truly one of the most historic, lovingly preserved areas in the entire city.

Our historic two-bedroom, two-bath 820 s.f. pied a terre is tucked away on a serene side street; you'll awaken to the sounds of birds chirping in our private garden, along with the bells of the magnificent cathedral of Notre Dame, which appears like magic when you turn out of our front door.

Our 'little house' in the city (so-named by some Parisian friends) is just steps from the bouquinistes (booksellers) which line the Seine, and a five minute walk to the famous Place St. Michel and the excitement of the Latin Quarter. Within minutes you can see the Sorbonne, the Roman baths and Unicorn Tapestries at the Cluny Museum, take a quick stroll to Ile St. Louis, visit the Conciergerie where Marie Antoinette spent her waning days, or take in a fabulous classical concert at the famous St. Chappelle built by Louis the IX.

Our lovely neighborhood is very French, a rarified historic district filled with galleries, artisans, restaurants and unique shops. The wonderful open air market on Place Maubert is a three-minute walk, as is the Metro and a plethora of bakeries, wine purveyors and a fabulous cheese shop.

The apartment itself is exceedingly comfortable and handsomely furnished. It features two quiet bedrooms (one upstairs, and one down), each with a tres chic new en suite bathroom -- perfect for two couples or a family. Both can be made up with two twins, or one king sized bed. A comfortable day bed in the living room accommodates a fifth adult guest, or two small children. The spacious living room is a perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine with friends and recount the day's adventures.

The recently renovated, gorgeous kitchen equipped with high end European appliances is fully equipped to whip up some French cuisine using your finds from the market at Place Maubert. Petite Maison's unique architectural features include classic 'tommettes' (old tiles) on the floor and a barrel vaulted brick ceiling in the living room. A striking iron chandelier illuminates the large dining table, where you can spread out your repast, and bask in the light from two walls of windows. We are also blessed with a private garden, a lovely place to enjoy a morning coffee during the warm summer months, and a working fireplace to keep you cozy on winter nights.

Our really wonderful Paris-based manager is just a phone call away should an unexpected problem arise.She is also available to assist with restaurant, event or tour reservations, as well as to arrange transportation. A personalized 'users guide' filled with our personal recommendations will help make the most of your sojourn in our favorite city in the world. French themed movies; a CD player with music library and travel guides are also on hand should you decide to enjoy a quiet evening 'chez nous.'

Please note that our cancellation policy is 90 DAYS IN ADVANCE OF OCCUPANCY - VRBO/HomeAway doesn't allow this option in their system, but in our experience, since European travelers normally plan/book their vacations far in advance, this period of time is required in order to re-book our rental. Your 50% deposit (required to reserve dates) is fully refundable up to 90 days before the date you arrive; once the balance is paid the reservation is non-refundable. We will process any deposit refunds outside of the VRBO system. We do recommend trip insurance to protect against any unforeseen circumstances. While you may drop your bags as early as 10 am, check in time is 3 pm if another guest is checking out the morning of your arrival; check-out is 10 am. Please keep these times in mind when make travel arrangements. We of course do our best to get you in as early as possible, but the only way to guarantee an early check in is to reserve the night prior to arrival.

If you are looking for lovely, comfortable and quiet accommodations just steps away from all the best Paris has to offer, look no further than Petite Maison. Please let us know if you have any questions, we would love to welcome you to Petite Maison!

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is in a perfect location to get anywhere in the city. We stayed with my three children. It was charming and easy. The beds are very comfortable. The bathrooms are a little small but clean and newly renovated. We had a wonderful time. I would highly recommend!

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was absolutely perfect! It was in a perfect location between Notre Dame and St. Germaine... exactly what you'd wish for. Also, the actual apartment was wonderful. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a trundle bed in the living room - plenty of room for my family of five. It was beautifully decorated and had every amenity and thoughtful touches. We actually went to the market and had two dinners and all breakfasts at the apartment - can't do that in a hotel! I highly recommend this property and would stay here in a heartbeat in the future.

Petit Maison, Picture Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Everything you could want and more. Cozy, charming, a quiet get-away in the heart of Paris.

This little gem had everything we needed. 2 Couples, 10 days ... perfect. Michelle has thought of everything, and then some ... coffee, a bottle of champagne, upon arrival. The apartment is fresh and clean, the linens soft as can be, the back patio is ideal for a quiet cup of coffee in the morning or a glass of wine before dinner. You walk out the front door and to your right, across the Seine, is the beautiful Notre-Dame, without the crowds!

I Highly Recommend!

Perfect in Paris!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely owner who shares her secret "Paris Notes" so you can explore the Paris she knows. Paris chic & comfortable, 2 bedroom, 2 bath apartment with well stocked kitchen, perfect for two couples! Located on a quiet street across the Seine from Notre Dame, with easy access to notable landmarks via walking, subway, Uber or bus. Around the corner is market at Place Maubert noted for cheese store Fromagerie Laurent Dubois, Boulangerie, Charcuterie, Rotisserie and street market 3 days a week. Thoughtful introduction to apartment as well as thoughtful & helpful transportation to CDG with driver who helped us all the way to check-in gate! Great Paris Stay!

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

I had been looking forward to our stay in La Petite Mansion from the time of booking. It was absolutely lovely and SO convenient to everything that we wanted to do. You are within walking distance to many of the major sites and museums. The hop-on-hop-off Botabus docks within a block of the apartment and was a fun way to get around.

The apartment was stocked with everything that we needed to begin our stay. Both the owner and manager are delightful and quickly responsive to all requests.

It was such a joyful experience to awaken to the bells of Notre Dame! Our only regret is that we had such a short time in Paris that we hardly spent any time in this wonderful apartment! We were constantly on the go, but would have loved to have had more time to enjoy the apartments comfort and charm.

I will say as a word of warning that the bed and bath space is quite small with very little storage. Remember, you are in an old neighborhood of Paris where this is to be expected. Pack lightly, if possible, and utilize the washer and dryer provided in the apartment.

We loved the neighborhood! Shopping is just at the end of the little street...everything that you need! The market on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday at Place Maubert is great!

We would absolutely choose Petite Mansion again if we have opportunity to return!

Perfect Paris Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Loved this well-appointed little pad in Paris! From the pre-arrival service, to a bottle of champagne upon arrival, to checkout, the experience was seamless.

Our family enjoyed the togetherness of the cozy spaces but also felt like we could go to our corners for some privacy. The location is perfect for exploring everything from St. Germain to the Marais to the Latin Quarter. Would definitely stay here on future trips.

The only caution I would give is for tall travelers...we have several family members who are over 6'3" and they had to be attentive to doorways and showers. But the little bit of ducking was worth it!

See you next time!
