Perks for the Parents

This stylish and spacious family home in the Parisian suburbs comes with a huge kid-friendly garden and a separate guest suite in the basement for extra visitors. It sleeps 10 + 2. This property offers all of the space and perks of the suburbs, with a just a short journey to reach some of the world’s most famous tourist attractions - don’t miss a trip to the iconic Eiffel Tower, the medieval Notre Dame Cathedral, or The Louvre art museum (all less than half an hour by train). Parents will love wandering round the romantic hilly streets of Montmatre under the shadow of Sacré-Cœur Basilica, or taking a stroll along the banks of the River Seine. Bring the nanny or grandparents along to stay in the private basement guest suite - there’s enough room here for the whole family to relax.

Why Kids Love it

The house has lots of toys for boys and girls aged 10 and under. As well as the dedicated play room and multiple play areas outside (including a tree house, small zip line, swings, and a sandbox) the garden leads directly onto a large public park which has bike paths, a playground, and tennis courts. When they’re ready to explore the big city, take them to the Ménagerie du Jardin des plantes Zoo to spot some big cats, or visit the Bois de Boulogne (which also houses the Monet Museum) for the Jardin d’Acclimatation theme park - it has a farm, pony rides, puppet shows, water play in the summer, and a whole host of nature activities and workshops.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 7 nights in the summer, 3 nights rest of the year. Safety notes: the house has security doors at both entrances and a security system for the whole house. There is parking available for several cars on the driveway - car rental is recommended but not essential, as the train station is within walking distance for access to the city. The housekeeper visits the property twice a week. The hosts have bikes available for guests to borrow during their stay (2 for adults, 2 for kids) as well as kids’ scooters. The house comes with air conditioning, dishwasher, washer/dryer, DVD player, TV, and WiFi.

About the Location

The house is located in the suburbs of Paris, France. Paris’ international airport is also around 40 minutes’ drive. This suburban location means that the property comes with large living areas and a spacious garden, while being just a short drive (40 minutes) or train ride (25 minutes) into the city - the RER train station is just 5 minutes’ walk. The house is close to the Saint Germain-en-Laye, which is home to many museums, theaters, castles, parks, and shopping areas, including the Claude Debussy Museum (30 minutes’ walk or 5 minutes by car/train). The Palace of Versailles is just 25 minutes’ drive.

Accommodation Details

This residence has 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, set over 3 floors. On the ground floor, there is a large eat-in kitchen with island breakfast bar (seating 3), which leads to a dining room (seating 8), a cozy living room with stunning floor-to-ceiling windows and a modern fireplace, as well as a powder room and cloakroom.

The hosts offer an additional travel crib and crib. Outside, there is a patio and dining area with barbecue, as well as a large grassy lawn and play area.

Style Notes

Contemporary elegance. This newly-renovated house has been updated with modern luxuries, like air conditioning and heated bathroom floors, while maintaining the traditional French style of classic 1900’s properties. The hosts have chosen contemporary furniture and large windows blended with printed wallpapers and splashes of bold color to create a warm and welcoming yet stylish home. Original art and one-off finds from the famous Clignancourt flea market give this house it's unique character, together with its period features such as sloping ceilings and exposed stone wall in the playroom. We love the dark tones adding grandeur to the hallway, the modern fireplace bringing a design element to the living room, and the gorgeous dark cabinetry in the kitchen.

We had a great stay! Nicole is a wonderful host, and her home is breathtaking. The children had a blast, both in the garden and in the house. There were many toys for small children and lots of space to explore safely. The park just outside the house is also beautiful. We highly recommend!

City meets country

With fresh air, flower fields and pretty riverside villages, not to mention world-famous tennis courts and the world's largest flea market, the suburbs of Paris offer a quieter alternative to the famous city itself. Wander forests and castles, browse wine collections and brocante stalls, or simply sip a coffee in a pavement café and watch the world go by. It’s easy to visit the best of the city in a morning by train or metro, and then retire to the countryside in the afternoon.
