About Brigitte

HI! I AM 51 AND HAVE BEEN LIVING IN THE MARAIS DISTRICT OF PARIS FOR THE PAST .... 42 YEARS.

AFTER LIVING HERE 'FULL TIME' FOR TEN YEARS, MY FRIEND AND I NOW SPLIT OUR TIME BETWEEN PARIS AND OUR COUNTRYSIDE HOUSE.

THAT'S WHY WE HAVE DECIDED TO SHARE THIS PLACE WE ADORE WITH VISITORS.

Brigitte purchased this apartment in 1960

Why Brigitte chose Paris

THE MARAIS DISTRICT IS A CHARMING TYPICAL AND VERY LIVELY PLACE, WALKING DISTANCE FROM MOST MONUMENTS AND MUSEUMS. JUST IDEALLY LOCATED FOR TOURISTS.

ALTHOUGH RECENTLY RENOVATED, WE HAVE ON PURPOSE DECIDED TO KEEP ANTIQUE FURNITURE FROM MY GRAND PARENTS WEDDING IN THE EARLY 30'S, AS WEEL AS ANCIENT TILES AND WALLPAPERS WE LIKE.

WE REALLY ENJOY SHARING THE PLACE WITH VISITORS, HOPING THEY CAN FEEL AT HOME, JUST LIKE REAL PARISIANS.

What makes this apartment unique

CITYLIFE-SIDE: RESTAURANTS AND BARS OF COURSE, BUT ALSO SHOPS AND MARKETS FOR EVERYDAY AND FOR THE SHOPPING-ADDICTS THE FAMOUS BAZAR DE L'HOTEL DE VILLE (DPT STORE) AND THE FASHION BOUTIQUES DOWN RUE DES FRANCS BOURGEOIS, OPENED EVEN EN SUNDAYS.. NOT TO TALK ABOUT THE HUGE 'LES HALLES' MALL WITH ITS SHOPS, RESTAURANTS, CINEMAS AND SWIMMING POOL...

ON TOURISTIC -SIDE: MUSEUMS (CARNAVALET, PICASSO, GEORGES POMPIDOU MODERN ART...) WALKING DISTANCE FOR NOTRE DAME, BASTILLE, BEAUBOURG PLACE DES VOSGES, QUARTIER LATIN AND AT 15 MN WITH THE SUBWAY FROM THE LOUVRE AND 30 MN FROM THE CHAMPS ELSEES.

Guestbook comments from the owner

C'était vraiment génial. Un magnifique appartement dans un très beau quartier, près de tout et sécuritaire! Notre hôtesse fut très accueillante et elle nous a guidé sur plusieurs aspects de notre séjour. Je vous le recommande fortement!

Convenient, comfortable and considerate

  • 5 of 5

Brigitte's apartment in the heart of Paris' Marais district could not have been more suitable for our two couples staying for three nights. Brigitte not only explained everything thoroughly upon our arrival, and gave use of all appliances, she had wonderful maps, guidebooks and suggestions for us which proved very helpful for our visit and enjoyment. Hers was the only place of six we stayed all around France that had fans for cooling on the 90 degree days- so nice! The apartment's mix of old and new was wonderful. The location is near the Seine which made for a short walk home each night after our stroll along the river, is near a couple different Metro stations which made it easy to visit all parts of the city, and was quiet at night (save the floorboards when someone had to "go" in the middle of the night :) Finally, Brigitte made arrangements for our taxi to the airport, which was greatly appreciated. Merci Beaucoup for everything! Until next time...

A perfect stay in the Marais!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 3 kids and I stayed in Brigitte's lovely home for the 5 nights we were in Paris this summer. To start Brigitte is very thoughtful and thorough. From her info on getting to apartment from the airport, instructions for the home, restaurant recommendations, and arranging for a taxi to the train station when we left everything was well communicated and perfect. This is honestly a treat. It was as if she anticipated our every need - truly a perfect host! The apartment is dreamy, the location superb and we can't wait to return! Staying in Brigitte's beautiful home made our experience in Paris superb!

comfortable and spacious

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (2 teenage girls) stayed 4 nights. The beds were very comfortable and even though it was quite warm when we visited, 2 large fans were available for us to use and we were very comfortable without air conditioning. She had lots of little extras available, coffee and even a few toiletries in case something was forgotten. The location was very walkable and safe, as well as close to the train station and metros

  • 5 of 5

Briggitte is a great host and welcoming to her family flat in Paris. The place is cozy charming and comfortable with every amenity. The location could not be better close to cultural attractions, fine dining, brasseries and cafes, and shopping. Highly recommended.

The best place in Paris for a truly authentic vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (2 teenage boys) stayed in Brigette's apt. over the Christmas holiday. We couldn't have been more pleased. The location is fabulous and close to everything you might possibly need. Brigitte has thought of every little thing and is so available to help answer questions and accommodate your stay. We loved Marais and wouldn't stay anywhere else in Paris. It's charming, convenient to restaurants, groceries and lots of shopping. We felt exceedingly safe as did our boys who would go off on their own for dinner here and there. Highly recommend! You won't be disappointed.
