Stay at Someone's home in Paris


Immerse yourself in a truly French experience with Petite Paris by staying in someone’s home in Paris. Unique, interesting and ‘real’ homes with stories to tell have made our charming Bed & Breakfast service an increasingly popular alternative to a hotel for Australians.

An 1850s mansion boasting 8m high ceilings, glass dining room, open terrace, decorated with worldly treasures from generations past and a Victorian bath-lounge. Bed & Breakfast #279 is Clara’s spectacular apartment in Paris often featured in magazine shoots and films.

Near the famous district of Montparnasse, located in a paved street dating from the 18th Century, where only residents are to be seen walking their dogs, B&B130 is an architectural haven. Architects are surprised by the interior of this residence composed on a reassembly of post-offices from the beginning of the century.

Built in 1859 by Gustav Eiffel at the same time as his Eiffel Tower and made of the same metallic materials this building is made up of different artists workshops and is included in guided tours of Paris. Tourists are always surprised by this strange construction. The façade of the building (of Bed & Breakfast 331) will be registered soon with the Historical Monuments in Paris, the artists studio then being considered as part of the Parisian patrimony. With a 6m high ceiling in a 200m2 loft over 2 levels, guests enjoy and an authentic atmosphere of the artists workshops from the end of the 19th Century and worldly treasures decorated throughout.

B&B 361 was built in the 18th Century. Sober without any particular architecture it hides a story and uncommon history. It was the property of the Abbesses of the Church Saint Jean de Montmartre on Abbesses Square, divided into 3 levels. The 1st floor was the living quarter of the community of the Abbesses, 2nd floor was the praying room and 3rd floor was for the dormitories of the abbesses. It has belonged in Alexander’s family for over 130 years.

Art aficionados, revel in an antique artists studio converted into a Bed & Breakfast (342) guest suite spread over 2 levels. Your host’s Uncle – a well-known sculptor resided here and was the leader of the sculptor studio ‘Beaux-arts’ of Paris and his wife a professor of the Louvre school. In the entire house there are no doors and there is a very special mood throughout. Find original antique works of art and outside a tranquil green courtyard.

Enjoy feeling like you’re in a little country town rather than bustling Paris in a historic 1830s Haussmann with traditional oak parquet, ceiling mouldings, marble chimneys. The architectural interest at Bed & Breakfast 345 is its inner entry under the porch, which used to be a lane and was closed at the beginning of the century to form a very calm inner yard.

See the towers of the Notre Dame cathedral from Bed & Breakfast 321 where you will live as a Parisian in your own private home. This Haussmann building located in the latin quarter was built in 1870 but its foundations are gallo-roman. The apartment used to be the office of a lady doctor and souvenirs of the past still remain in the house including portraits of her ancestors and children’s toys dating back to the 1920s.
