The Experience

At the end of the street are the Seine and the glory of Notre Dame. In a grand old building (with a new lift by the 17th-century stairs), the two unaffected rooms, one above the other, look down to a little garden. The mezzanined family room has its bathroom off the landing; a simple breakfast of shop-packed items is laid here. Upstairs is the smaller room: bed in the corner, timeworn shower room and your own entrance. Madame is polyglot, active and eager to help when she is available; she leaves breakfast ready if she has to go out. She appreciates the variety of contact guests bring. A gem in the heart of Paris.

We had a lovely stay. Brigitte made us very welcome and was very happy to provide information on places to visit. Lovely location with easy access to sites of Paris. Would love to return.

Greg, Sheffield

We had such a lovely stay and felt very at home. Brigitte was a wonderful host, who gave us lots of good information about places to visit in the area and places to eat. A great location, and a beautiful home. We do hope to come back again.

Alice, London

The ideal place to stay when wishing to explore the centre of Paris, especially when there is a public transport strike in progress! Thus we were in walking distance of almost all the places we had planned to visit. Our room was delightful, our breakfast delicious & our host, Brigette, not only charming but very well informed & extremely helpful. With very many thanks, James, Sarah & Claudia.

James, London

We had a wonderful stay in Brigitte’s apartment, which is classically French and fabulously located right near to Notre Dame. It has also the beauty of being in walking distance of so many sights and interesting places. Brigitte couldn’t have been more helpful in ensuring we had everything we needed before and during our stay. A unique place that feels like being at home in the middle of Paris. We’ll definitely be back.

Ros, London

I’ve been chez Brigitte for a long weekend in June with my husband and a 10 year old boy.The place is really wonderful you feel in a real French home. It’s in the heart of Paris 5 minutes’ walk from ile de Saint Louis and Notre Dame....We stayed in the blue room which was spacious and clean and also the bathroom was big (quite unusual by Parisian standards). Madame Brigitte was a wonderful host and was extremely helpful in giving us every kind of advice. All in all a delightful accommodation. Merci Madame! We are looking forward to come back!

Valentina, Roma

We, my wife and me and our two daughters, stayed at Madame Brigitte's charming, spacious and authentic Parisian apartment for five nights. It was a wonderful stay, directly in the heart of Paris, very close to Notre Dame, the Latin Quarter, Paris-St-Germain-des-Pres. Madame Brigitte is a great host, always helpful, providing us with many recommendations and support to make our stay in Paris a great experience. Breakfast was simple, but perfect and exactly the way how one wants to start a day in Paris. We definitely will try to book this accommodation again next time. Thanks, Madame!

Martin, Ulm, Germany

This was a great place to stay. It is so convenient to the sites of Paris around Notre Dame and the Latin District. The owner was delightful and was most helpful in so many ways to maneuver the public transportation and a wealth of information of things to do. If I return to Paris again, I hope to book the same location!

Susan, Washington DC

A gem of place! 9th visit to Paris and the first time we have found the perfect place to stay - a truly authentic Parisian apartment. We woke on the Sunday morning to the sound of the Notre Dame bells less than 3 minutes walk away. We all adored our host Brigitte who was so happy to provide us with recommendations and information. Breakfast was simple but just what we wanted to start our days. We absolutely loved it and will DEFINITELY be returning! Thank you Brigitte for sharing your home x

Gilly, Leigh on Sea

Centrally located, quiet, reasonably priced, and with an elevator, you can't ask for anything more. Brigitte Chatignoux was a wonderful hostess, helpful with ideas of things to see and providing resources such as books, maps and brochures. We would definitely stay here again.

Kate, Berkeley

We had a wonderful two night stay in the smaller of Brigitte's two rooms. It suited us perfectly and we loved it! It is incredibly well located, and Brigitte welcomed us warmly, with loads of information about the local area. The room is compact but perfect, with a charming view out into a lovely courtyard. Even though it was a busy warm weekend, we heard only birdsong in the morning, and exited onto a quiet shaded street to start our day. Brilliant! We can't wait to return. Thank you, Brigitte!

Dale, London

A fabulous few days staying in Brigitte’s quiet but perfectly located apartment. Plenty of space for a family of 4 and breakfast every day was welcome and varied. Brigitte gave us little hints and tips, from a newly refurbished church to visit to the local market. Felt like we were very much at home and would certainly rebook or recommend. Merci Brigitte.

Sian, Oxford

Hi Mrs Chatignoux, on behalf of my family and myself we would like to say thank you, we had a very good time in Paris and part of this wonderful vacation was you, thanks for the tips about transportation and many thanks for your kindness. We experienced first hand Parisienne hospitality and we are going to save that in our hearts for the rest of our life.

Mosquera family

The apartment is perfectly located and has everything you need. It`s snug, cosy and provided us with a glimpse into living life as a Parisian. Our host was warm, friendly and charming, and provided us lots of local information. We felt completely at home and it was always a pleasure to chat. Breakfast was a selection of breads and condiments, with fruit, yoghurt and tea/coffee. There are many shops and restaurants nearby and despite its` very central position only moments away from Notre Dame, it is a quiet and relaxing place to stay. St Michel station is just a few minutes walk away.

Garry, Southampton

We spent 3 excellent nights in Notre Dame. It is really well located, close to the cathedral, the RER and the metro. Very easy access from Charles de Gaulle. We stayed in the blue room and really enjoyed the ambience of this perfect Parisian apartment. Brigitte is a lovely lady, happy to chat and provide lots of useful information about the surrounding area and life in Paris. Thank you Brigitte.

Judith, Belfast

We had a fantastic stay. The host was very helpful always happy to answer questions and offer suggestions on places to go/eat. Accommodation was great, good breakfast and fantastic location. I will be staying here again!

Isaac, London

We had a delightful three nights here staying with our grandson. Brigitte welcomed us and we immediately felt at home. She was full of ideas and advice on what we could do. We could walk to most of the places we wanted to see and the metro was just around the corner. We enjoyed wandering round the local streets visiting the food shops and the local restaurants. We're looking forward to coming back next year with the next grandchild.

Louise, London

We had 2 rooms booked and enjoyed it very much! Its in a quiet cobble-stoned street very near to Notre Dame, so very central and it overlooks a tranquil and sweet backcourt. The beds are very comfortable and there is free Wifi. The owner is very helpful and kind and gave us useful tips. It is possible to book only 1 room for 4 people or 2 rooms for 6 people altogether. Its a lovely ambiance and I would stay there again.


I first stayed with Brigitte in 1994 and have returned several times, most recently in 2014. The central location is great, just steps from the river and Notre Dame in one direction and the wonderful Place Maubert, with it's market and village atmosphere, in the other direction. The room is comfortable in a centuries old building. The views into the courtyard have lingered in my memories for many years. But the main reason I choose this spot is Brigitte herself. She treats me like an old friend. I hope to return again soon.

Thomas, Houston, Texas

A very comfortable, cosy hideaway in the heart of Paris. It was a perfect base for a family of four for a weekend in Paris. The beds were warm and comfortable, the breakfast plentiful and Mme Chatignoux was so kind and thoughtful. Just delightful.


A calm quiet flat just across the seine from Notre Dame, the entrance and old tiled stairway quite magical. We had a lovely two nights chez madame chatignoux.
