Coming from New york on the red eye Sabine met all of our jetlagged needs upon arrival with fresh peach juice, tea, coffee, and refreshments. I had expected a "bed and breakfast", but this residence is so much more. The rooms are sun drenched and luxurious. We stayed in Hermes which was particularly large, but Timmins was beautiful too (and still very spacious) with a stunning hidden bath room with a deep soaking tub. As most BNB's state a specific cut of time for breakfast, at Eliel there is no such thing. A gourmet continental breakfast is provided whenever you wake up ( which for us being on the US time zone was normally around 1pm). Never before have I experienced such a great assortment of pastries (from a world class pastry chef), cheeses, crepes and of course to this day the most delicious tea I have ever had. The location is great. We walked to the Sacre Couer in 25min, and took the train to the Louvre in less than 10. The neighborhood is very hip with great boutiques, as well as boutique restaurants everywhere. You really feel like you are in Paris and not just at a tourist attraction. I have spent a lot of time in Paris over the years, and have stayed in everything from high end hotels, to apartments, to bed and breakfasts, and this is by far the nicest residence I have found. Living in Brooklyn and downtown Manhattan I like to think I have a very cosmopolitan perspective so if you're from my neighborhoods this is definitely the place for you. However, its so quaint and in a mellow part of Paris this could be great for the solo traveller, or quiet couple looking for a little rest and relaxation. Lastly, there is an amazing single room with a roll out, that is perfect for kids and is much bigger than it appears in photographs. This is a great affordable/luxury option for families too! Sabine is an amazing host, and a master of creating a full service luxury living experience at an affordable price. I can't wait to return next year. Charlie NY
We (family of 4) stayed for 5 nights in mid-September. We saw mainly Pascale and found her very helpful with suggestions of places to visit, where to buy the great baguettes enjoyed at breakfast and a great (continental)breakfast each day. The bedroom was big enough with its mezzanine floor, and the bathroom really roomy. Finding a building tucked in behind the apartment building with its own garden was a luxury. Don't worry about the image on Google street view - that's a few doors away.
Wir wollten Paris erkunden und haben dafür die richtige Pension gefunden. Uns wurde sofort alles erklärt wo und wie wir am besten nach Paris kommen. Für unser Auto bekamen wir eine Garage . Der Bahnhof UBahn und Busbahnhof sind 5 Minuten zu Fuss zu erreichen. Das Frühstück wurde liebevoll zubereitet, mit allem was dazu gehört, sogar Erdbeeren und frische Pfannkuchen waren dabei. Wir werden wiederkommen! Ein echter Geheimtip !!
We stayed 5 days in Paris, Farida and Claude did everything they could to make us feel easy, they gave us kindly help to make our trip wonderful. It is convenient to come to their house by public traffic, the room is very clean and comfortable, the breakfast includes home-made juice, it is really delicious. We are satisfied with everything about this stay and we would not be hesitate to recommend Le Home du Soleil to others¿
We stayed in Paris 5 days in September and we really enjoyed our holidays. The B&B is located in a quiet street near bus stops and the metro station. The room was clean,comfortable and well decorated,and we loved the huge breakfasts in the morning! The owners are very welcoming and friendly,we shared a dinner together and we had great time chatting with them. We will come back by Christophe and Pierre-Louis for sure if we'll plan to visit Paris once again! Thank you! Martina & Giorgio
Accueil chaleureux et cadre agréable. Les chambres sont très spacieuses avec un lit King size. Manque juste un peu de rafraîchissement dans la salle de bain. Sinon reviendront avec plaisir si nous repassons dans le coin.
My husband and I stayed here for 7 days and have nothing but good things to say about La Villa Paris. Marie is a most welcoming hostess from the first time she greets you on arrival with a cup of tea or coffee and a chat in the beautiful breakfast room until she is helping you load your luggage into the taxi she has ordered for you upon your departure. Breakfast was delicious with cereals, pastries, eggs, baguette's with freshly squeezed orange juice and tea or coffee on offer. Marie's assistant Alex was more than happy to make us a "paper bag" breakfast and left it in the fridge for us to pick up on the morning we had a very early start. It was delicious and a great way to start the day.The Concorde room in which we stayed was excellent, it has a large very comfortable bed and plenty of room with an ensuite. The B&B is situated in a residential area of Paris with a bus stop literally a 1 minute walk away which takes you to either the Metro station or you can stay on the bus and it will take you all the way to the Louvre and even further. There is also a bike rental area directly in front of the villa if you are inclined to tackle the Paris traffic! It was very easy to get around and Marie is more than happy to assist in giving you recommendations, maps and directions on how to get to places. She is also full of recommendations regarding restaurants around the area, we found Le Circus to be great, the staff were very helpful in explaining the menu and being of assistance when ordering. We would most definitely stay with Marie again if ever we should revisit Paris in the future.
Christophe y François son muy simpáticos, limpios y buenos hospitalarios. Las fotos corresponden a la realidad ( incluso hasta mejor visto del vivo), lo mejor de todo es que estas en el centro de París!! François y Christophe están siempre dispuestos a ayudarte y a aconsejarte..La próxima vez que volvamos a París nos quedaremos aquí sin lugar a dudas!
We had a short but most enjoyable stay with Pascale and Pierre's at their B&B. Pierre greeted us, pointed out the best French Restaurants, helped us with visiting sites (including the best ice-cream). Breakfast was delicious, it included homemade jam, beautiful bagettes, and we were lucky enough to eat some of their grapes from their garden. The bedroom was spacious, the bathroom was huge, the bed was comfy and there is a mezzanine with another bed upstairs. Wifi access included. Its less than 3min walk to the metro, however the best way to see old Paris was by walking. The apartment is tucked away and behind a set of apartments, you don't hear or see any traffic. The hospitality was lovely, we really enjoyed our stay with Pierre, Pascale and Vincent their son (who is a singer and will be releasing a single).
A l'occasion d'un weekend surprise pour l'anniversaire de mon ami, nous avons passé un moment inoubliable dans la chambre Toscane. Un petit coin de paradis. Très propre, lumineux, confortable et intime. Annabelle nous a très bien accueilli. Le seul petit point négatif, le jacuzzi est bruyant la nuit ;( Nous reviendrons...
Quelle belle découverte que cette magnifique propriété située au coeur d'un petit coin de campagne pleine de charme. Rien à redire à ce petit break passé en couple dans la chambre dotée du jacuzzi et du sauna privatifs. Agréable, calme, propre, déco pleine de goût. Le prix reste abordable pour ce niveau d'équipement. Accueil chaleureux des propriétaires que nous remercions pour cet excellent moment. Florian & Aïssatou
Un passage court à Paris, des hôtes charmants et prévenants, un échange très agréable, une jolie chambre avec petit balcon, proche du métro... Sans conteste nous reviendrons lors de notre prochain passage à Paris. JC et Marie
Hallo! Wir sind ein Ehepaar aus Deutschland und haben bei Christophe und Pierre-Louis drei Tage gewohnt, wo wir uns sehr gut gefühlt haben und sehr willkommen. Das Zimmer hat ein eigenes Bad und sieht sogar besser als in Fotos, alles war sehr sauber und geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Das französische Frühstück war sehr lecker und in einer angenehmen Atmosphäre. Auf der Terasse konnten wir abends einen Wein genießen. Gute Anbindungen zum öffentlichen Verkehrsmittel und zum Einkaufszentrum! Die Gastgeber waren sehr hilfsbereit und sehr bemüht! Wir haben uns viel besser als im Hotel gefühlt und würden gerne bei Cristoph und Pierre-Louis wieder übernachten :) Merci beaucoup pour votre hospitalite !
My 18 year old daughter and I had the pleasure of staying at Le Cremieux apartments during our 6 day visit to Paris, August 17th to the 23rd. It was our first visit to this fabulous city and I can honestly say that we looked forward to the end of each day when we could head back to "our little spot" to relax, unwind and start planning our next day's activities. This apartment is perfectly appointed with everything one might need to make you feel at home..and the location was so convenient....walking distance to so many fabulous sights....The Bastille, The Marais Area, Notre Dame....and if you didn't feel like walking, well, the Gare de Lyon is literally right around the corner!...so simple and handy....and we felt safe and every second we were there...even walking home later in the evening. I will recommend staying at Rue Cremieux to anyone...and hopefully will have a chance to return some day. Thank you to Joel and Nicolas. Catherine from Canada.
Nous avons beaucoup apprécié l'accueil, le calme et le confort. Le petit déjeuner était vraiment copieux et les confitures maison délicieuses et inventives ! Le métro est à côté, mais nous avons beaucoup visité à pied. Encore merci à Pascale pour son accueil et ses conseils.
My family and I came from Brazil and stayed six days in Pascale and Pierre's B&B. Vincent, their son welcome us warmly. We visited a lot of places, and we got a lot of good ideas to see beautiful things, eat to restaurants. Breakfast was so good, the bathroom is so huge ! The weather was not beautiful, but our stay was. Thank you for all !
Thanks to Farida and her husband our stay in Paris was beautiful and amazing. We were welcomed and pampered, excellent breakfast where we could chat and exchange ideas about life and the world. Thanks for the smile and impeccable hospitality.
We spent 3 nights at La Villa, it was a wonderful stay. The room was very comfortable, cosy, quiet, clean and very nice furnished. Breakfast was very delicious, my daughter liked fresh juice and croissant very much. Maria was very friendly and helpful, always ready to give very useful and precise advices about where to eat, to buy, to go, etc. We even find a Chinese book on the bookshelf. Not in the center of Paris, but easy access to Metro. In summary, everything was perfect.
The two of us enjoyed our stay at the Cremieux apt. Everything was provided and Pascal met us as Joel was away. Pascal handled a "small" emergency quickly and professionally. Location was great, apartment was spotless and the kitchen fully stocked. We recommend this apartment highly and would consider it again should we return to Paris. Thanks
Nous avons passé 2 nuits chez Ghislain avec nos 3 enfants et nous avons été très bien accueilli. Un accueil super et un endroit propre et très bien situé. Un petit déjeuner copieux. Rien à redire. Une adresse à conserver sans aucun doute.
This was our first visit to Paris and Farida and Claude did everything they could to make us feel welcome. The breakfast is amazing - all of the delicious homemade food was a real treat! The room is to the rear of the building and was as quieter than we thought it may be in the middle of a city. It felt private but homely at the same time. The area around the B&B is nice, with metro stops and plenty of shops (supermarkets, bakeries etc.) within easy walking distance. Farida and Claude were very helpful, telling us the easiest/quickest ways to get to the places we wanted to visit and suggesting things we could do and see in the area. I would not hesitate to recommend Le Home du Soleil to others.
The place is very central and is very close to a metro station. The apartment was very comfortable, private, clean and with everything you need to prepare your own food if you wanted it. It was the first time I traveled to Paris and Farida and Claude made ¿¿my visit more magical. They are very nice people and their attention was excellent at all times. Breakfast was delicious, it was like being at home. Spend pleasant moments in this place, I highly recommend it.
This 1-bedroom garden cottage is absolutely marvelous. Mme Cordesse is a great hostess, delivering fresh bakeries for us to have French breakfast every morning. She is a great English speaking resource for Paris touring advice as well, letting visitors know how to get around in Paris, complete with printed tour guides and maps waiting ready to be borrowed on the living room table (in English). The Wi-Fi worked fine. The place is totally tranquil and one enters the cottage via her house and passing through a small beautifully manicured garden. The kitchen is fully equipped, I loved the espresso machine, and the fridge stocked with most anything you may desire for breakfast. The rooms are totally clean and so comfortable. We all felt right at home (I, dad, was visiting Paris with my two teenage daughters). The walk to the metro and street cars is about 10 minutes, so the total commute to most Paris downtown sights takes about 25-45 minutes. There are several quaint lovely little restaurants within walking distance of the cottage, as well as grocery stores, a butcher, a bakery and several banks (automatic teller machines included). So convenient! My daughters are so eager to come and stay there again soon.
My fiancee and I had a lovely time in Paris staying at the Home du Soleil for three nights. The location is excellent for excursions of the city and surroundings - 5 min walk to the station, and direct metro connection to the center in less than 10 min. The inkeepers are very friendly and helpful and committed to making the stay pleasant. Clean facilities, and indeed a real bed as advertised :-) Breakfast was delicious! The part of town felt generally safe.
very conveniently located, very quiet and private location. The Host is very charming and helpful. We felt very welcome especially after 12 hours in the air and jet lagged. We cannot thank the Host enough for making our stay so enjoyable!
