Isabelle and Jerome’s house is the second of two mansions built in 1860 by one of the “Cité des Fleurs” founders for each of his daughters.
Once through the gates, you enter a small enclosed garden in the front of a beautiful stone facade, with a charming wooden terrace, topped by a young fig tree and garnished with plants and flowers as soon as the weather is nice. Climb up the steps and you are in one of the very rare guest houses in Paris.
In the large hall paved with black and white tiles and lit with a Murano red glass chandelier, you will be welcomed personally and will start feeling the intimate and authentic atmosphere that makes the real charm of homestays.
A splendid staircase covered with soft carpet leads up to both floors reserved for guests, each with two large bedrooms named after their children, with dressing room, private bathrooms and separate toilets.
In the mornings, breakfast is served in the private dining room on the ground floor. Basking in the light from both the living room and inner courtyard, and under the mischievous look of a girl in a graceful pose (terracotta bust by Belgian sculptor Georges Van der Straeten), you will enjoy a delicious and lavish homemade breakfast while planning the day with Isabelle and Jerome’s helpful advice.
