The Experience

Provided you’re happy to climb to the third floor, Junior Suite is perfect on every score. Light pours in through tall windows, the bedroom faces a tiny street (traffic? You can barely hear it), the detailing is tip-top and everything’s folded, fluffed or shining. At 40m2, this flat is not large but it’s cleverly laid out and as homely as can be. Off a tiny hall is the living room – no sofa but comfy chairs at the dining table, and a fridge-and-microwave kitchenette – a small bathroom to the right and a delightful bedroom to the left. Beds (made up as a queen or two twins) are topped with feather pillows and lovely linen, there’s a large TV and books galore – including some fascinating old travel journals – a polished pine floor that has aged gracefully, and some elegant oriental antiques. Welcoming you with bathrobes, kimonos, extra towels, umbrellas, croissants and a bottle of wine is Belgian-born Catherine, generous, well-travelled and living on the fourth floor. She knows all the places to go, from restaurants and delis to Notre Dame and the Jardin des Plantes, two minutes away.

We had a wonderful stay. Catherine is a very generous host and the flat is tasteful and immaculate! It is also in a lovely convenient area.

Amanda, Kew, Melbourne

The apartment is beautifully appointed and the location is hard to beat. Catherine is gracious and welcoming. We'll be back

Lyse, Ottawa, Canada

We (mother&daughter) enjoyed our stay very much! Catherine is an excellent hostess, you can immediately feel at home. The apartment is very nicely decorated in every detail- I will be very happy to come back.

Barbara, Hamburg

We have stayed with Catherine on several occasions now and each time confirms that we would never want to stay anywhere else in Paris. Her apartment is full of beautiful pieces and artwork which create a feeling of being at home yet in an extremely cultured environment. In fact it is so comfortable you never want to leave. Spotlessly clean, extremely quiet, yet in the centre of a wonderful precinct that caters for everything you need.

Christine, Adelaide, South Australia

The location of Catherine's flat is ideal to experience authentic Paris. There are good bus and metro lines close by but walking in Paris is a real treat and from this location one can get to many places. St Germain, Odean, Moufftard, Bastille to name a few. The nearby street markets provide a glimpse into French daily life and are well worth the visit, as are the Luxembourg gardens. I relished in the beautiful architecture of the neighbourhood and the general vibe. It was a joy to stay at Catherine's.

Junior, Palma de Mallorca

A beautiful flat in a wonderful neighbourhood, a stone’s throw from the botanical gardens. Charming hostess; you don’t feel like a tourist but a house guest.

Sara, Edinburgh

I was stayed with Catherine in year 2017 and I do like her personality and her flat. Catherine is a thoughtful and charming person, the way she decorate her flat shows her taste. I had such great experience with Catherine, and I am very happy to come back to stay with her. When I am planning to visit Paris this year, Catherine's flat is my only choice. She's like an old friend of mine, I would love to stay with her in my every visit to Pairs.

Josie, Taiwan

This is the second time that my friend and I have stayed in Catherine’s flat. It is a delightful place with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Catherine is so helpful and friendly and lives on the floor above and can help with any queries you have without being in any way intrusive. It is situated in an area of Paris with many places to eat within walking distance and a metro station just along the road for exploring other parts of this wonderful city.

Allan, Northwich, Cheshire

Madame le Guay's apartment in the Latin quarter is the stuff of dreams, high up on the third floor with tall windows and red geraniums on the windowsills. Open the door and there is Paris! The apartment is central, quiet and secure, with every comfort a traveller could desire. Madame le Guay is a lovely host and just upstairs if one needs help. Her care and attention for her guests is evident in every detail of the apartment, and her map of the quartier allowed my husband and I to feel like locals and know where the markets would be on different days. We enjoyed our stay and hope to return.

Annabel, Brisbane

Just returned from a wonderful trip to Paris where we stayed at this fabulous apartment. It was charming, clean, spacious with lots! of windows to let in light. Our host, Catherine, could not have been more generous with her attention to the smallest details in the apartment and with her time orienting us to the area. Certainly receiving a bottle of wine upon arrival made us feel right at home. Metro stop is close by so it was easy for us to explore as much of the City as we could during our 9 day stay. Will definitely stay there next time I am in Paris and will recommend to friends.

Maureen, Berkeley

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our first stay in Paris in July thanks especially to our wonderful host Catherine and her lovely, clean and bright apartment in the Latin Quarter. The location is ideal - quiet, safe and within a minute walk from the Metro and walking distance from many of the city sights and surrounded by local restaurants and cafes. Catherine is a delightful person who provided not only breakfast treats but also a great introduction to many of Paris’ attractions and beauty. We would love to come back and stay here the next time we return!

Lynne, Los Angeles

We arrived just in time for the Gay Rights Parade! Catherine's apartment is in a great location to reach all the interesting places in Paris. Easy walking to the Pompidou, Louvre, Notre Dame, Picasso Museum and a local street market just 5 minutes away. This is a place to keep coming back to!

Mike, Madison

We have spent many weeks in Paris over the years and we have had mixed experiences with our accommodation in the past. This stay with Catherine as host was certainly once of the best we have had and we will definitely stay here again. The apartment is well located, well appointed and Catherine was the perfect host.

John, Mirepoix

This was my first stay at the Junior Suite and I loved every minute of it. I had travelled for 24 hours from Australia so it was a real treat to be met by Catherine and a glass of red. I loved the location, and its cosy comfort, and the proximity to so many of the Paris attractions. I walked and walked, and with Catherine's guidance I also mastered the metro. I'm looking forward to my next visit.

Christine, Melbourne, Australia

This flat was absolutely perfect. It was spacious, had wonderful light, and all the amenities we could have hoped for. In a sweet neighborhood with a metro stop just at the corner we could easily get anywhere in the city. Catherine was a lovely host, providing us with any assistance we needed. We would recommend this flat to everyone and will certainly stay here the next time we are in Paris.

Caroline, Berlin

This is one of my favorite place to stay in Paris. I've stayed in this lovely apartment several times over the past years. On this visit my daughters took the apartment and enjoyed it immensely. Of course the location is perfect, but more importantly the apartment is beautiful and Catherine is a superb host. We think of this wonderful little gem as "notre masion parisienne."

David, San Francisco

This was our second stay in Catherine’s lovely stylish and very comfortable, chic apartment. We love the views from the windows, the elegant bedroom and Catherine’s warm welcoming attitude to her guests which makes us feel it’s like a home for us in Paris. She booked for us two different very good local restaurants where the food, wine and Left Bank ambience was excellent. The street is very quiet and the apartment is very close to the Jardin des Plantes which you can walk through to get to the Gare de Lyon. We will happily stay there again when we next visit Paris.

Lizzie and Alistair, Cambridge, England

Charming flat in a safe and quiet location. Wonderful amenities, easy to walk to restaurants, bakeries and historic sites. Most importantly, lovely host to help with all of your needs to make your visit memorable.

J & K, Kailua

I have stayed several times with Catherine in the rue Linné, and I expect I will stay there again. I like this part of town very much, and I find the apartment itself charming, sophisticated, quiet, and well maintained. Catherine is thoughtful, discrete, accommodating, friendly and helpful; a gracious host! Highly recommended! (It would not be suitable for someone who has difficulty with stairs, since it is a walkup.)

Gregory, New York

Back home we think of Paris as an inspiration - and our appartment "chez Cathrine" was part of it! Annette (Hamburg) and I (Düsseldorf) could have chosen a very good hotel for our trip to Paris, but opening the door to the private space of a well furnished appartment, finding a good bottle of wine waiting for you, the discreete note at the door suggesting something you might be interested in - that all makes the difference! We found a very well maintained stylish interior and recommend it - no ifs and buts!!!
