Stay at Someone’s Home…
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.
Bed & Breakfast 310 is a bright loft of130m2 and has
been completely designed by Anne-Claude, your
host. It’s located inside what was once an old Parisian
cinema studio now converted into apartments.
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.
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.
A private mansion built in 1890 on the old gardens of Tivoli; at
the time the house of the courtesan. It was purchased by
your hosts grandparents. Bed & Breakfast 295 boasts a 100m2
garden, charming traditional Parisian architecture, decor
resembling the interior of French castles and family antique
furniture.
What’s more interesting that the buildings is people. Our hosts consist of music record
producers, photographers, antique dealers, artists, theatre directors, a clown, radio
personalities, journalists, actresses, writers, producers and more. Intriguing characters
and personalities, hosts are friendly and hospitable yet discreet and private.
