About Sophie BARROUYER

I have always lived in Paris and worked in the field of culture and media. I studied in the United states and speak fluently english. With my husband Frederic we have enjoyed since very long to welcome in our home, students and friends of all ages and from all over the world.

We like to go the opera, theater, movies and concerts. We belong to the Friends of the Louvre museum and Paris modern art museum and go often to museums, exhibits and galleries.

We like to go and eat out and are very open to new cultural trends as well as the very elegant restaurant.

We are always happy to share our good knowledge of parisian cultural and social life, restaurants, shops and curiosities.

We are very concerned for our guests to have the best time in Paris according to their tastes and desires! LOOKING FORWARD TO SEE YOU!.

Sophie BARROUYER purchased this apartment in 1995

Why Sophie BARROUYER chose Sainte-Avoye

My house is uniquely located to visit Paris for a short time just walking around, but also very pleasant to stay longer, because of its quietness and the nice surroundings which mixed historical unique momuments, squares, churchs, theaters, concert halls with also a very parisian atmosphere with friendly food markets and small restaurants, bars and shops next to elegant stores, parks, 1 to 3 stars restaurants... bikes and electric car renting stations just by the house and parkings fo those who come by car!

What makes this apartment unique

My appartment is a 'HOUSE' in the center of Paris with a real house atmosphere. It is so quiet that at night you forget you are in Paris. The second floor where is the suite offers a lot of space and confort. The ground floor is extremely large and offer you all what your own home does.

*The 2 students living on the first flooor are very discreets and rarely there, going to school, working or going out. We never had anycomplain about having to share some spaces with them. They may babysit for you.
