Our cozy, 3 bedroom single-family "urban cottage" is located in Maisons-Laffitte, just 20 minutes by direct train to the center of Paris (Champs-Elysees). We love being close to the excitement and bustle of Paris, but also the calm, quaint village atmosphere of Maisons-Laffitte. Our house is perfect for a family with children OR for adults who want a more typical French experience than what is usually found staying at a downtown Paris hotel. We are a short (10 minute) walk from the river Seine, where you can have picnics, ride your bike, or just relax.
We have all of the American “creature comforts”- washer/dryer, dishwasher, Wi-Fi, Netflix, Xbox, etc. The house is extremely sunny with high windows , tall ceilings, and a ridiculous amount of marble fireplaces :) We have a private garden for eating and/or hanging out during warmer weather, as well as a firepit area for chilling out once the sun goes down.
The master bedroom has a queen sized bed, the 2 smaller rooms each have double sized beds. The living room also has a sleeper sofa, with french doors to close it off from the rest of the house (for privacy). Lastly, we've built out a "man-cave" in the basement where we have xbox/wii, a home cinema set-up, television, and another double sleeper-sofa.
Our house is extremely cozy and sunny. We love going to flea markets and have decorated our place with a lot of our flea-market treasures. Our kids are in their teens, but we still have lots of toys, books, games, etc for younger kids to play with, as well.
