Brigitte & Gérard greet you

Your Hosts


Brigitte  & Gérard Place des  Vosges Your hosts, Brigitte and Gérard, are in their fifties.
They have offered their guest room to visitors since 1994 because they are fond of meeting new people and exchanging cultures.

Brigitte works in a bank and Gérard works for the car company BMW.

Brigitte, Parisian-born, will be able to provide you with good advice for all your visits or to assist you with booking a restaurant, a show or a taxi.
Brigitte and Gérard offer you to watch a video on Paris (in English) and to share a drink with them at the same time.
Brigitte speaks very good English.

Your Hosts' apartment


Your hosts' quiet and bright apartment was built in 1950 and is located on the seventh floor (with elevator).

A small hall separate the private rooms of Brigitte and Gerard from the guest room, which gives much privacy to both guests and hosts.
You will be most welcome in the large and comfortable living-room if you wish to relax in the afternoons and evenings or talk with Brigitte and Gérard.

You will appreciate the cosy atmosphere of the room, which is always supplied with biscuits, chocolates, sweets, a kettle and coffee bags, teas bags, herbal teas to prepare warm drinks, mineral water and fruit juice.
Thanks to its good soundproofing (double-glazed window and oriented on an inner courtyard), you can completely relax peacefully.

The bedroom is furnished with queen size double bed (160 cm X 200 cm), with feather pillows and a thick quilt. Pillows without weather are available upon request for people who suffer from allergies to feathers; a mini-refrigerator and a microwave oven.
You will find a lot of documentation and maps of Paris in your room, as well as a small library with books in different languages.

During the week, you are offered to help yourselves in your hosts' refrigerator for all the goods which have to be kept in a cold place.






Additional information


Your arrival or deposit of your bags is possible every day between 7.00 am and 10.00 pm.
If your hosts cannot be at home to welcome you, they will let a key for you at a neighbour's so that you can access directly to your bedroom and have a little rest, even if they are not there.

They both love animals. Your dog, if he is small and well educated, will be most welcome, but you cannot leave him alone in the apartment during the day.
From time to time, Brigitte and Gerard look after a dog who belongs to friends of them. He sleeps in their bedroom and is not allowed to go to your room. Thus you will not meet him often. However, if you are allergic to dogs, please tell Brigitte so that she will not have him at home during your stay.

The bedroom is strictly non smoking. Gérard is a smoker, but he does not smoke in the apartment ; if you are also smoker, when your hosts are at home you can smoke on the balcony of the dining-room, but never in the guest room.

An iron and an ironing board are available upon request.

Brigitte loves music and she has a piano that you can play if you wish, when she is at home.



Additional services


In the afternoon, Brigitte can be available to spend time for a conversation in French with you or to accompany you and to show you the real Paris , for a guided tour in the neighbourhood, or to an open-air market, or to some interesting places less visited by tourists than the usual well-known touristic places recommended in the guide books (25 euros for one hour, tours for two hours minimum – these are private tours personalized for you only, not in a group).

If you travel by car, you can have an access to a garage behind the building for 10 euros a day.
