Description

I have been living in France for 20 years and have created a warm and welcoming Bed & Breakfast environment within the smart but comfortable top floor apartment that I am looking forward to sharing with you.

52 Clichy is the only B&B in the 2016 Frommer's Paris Day by Day guidebook and it is listed as the Best Value property in Paris. 'Make yourselves at home' is the only house rule.

As the B&B overlooks an inner courtyard and private gardens, 52 Clichy is an oasis of calm and peace where birdsong is normally the loudest noise you will hear - this is surprising because you are in the heart of the city, with the Moulin Rouge and Montmartre just a few minutes walk away to the North and the luxury shopping area and the Paris Opéra to the South.

Your bedroom can be organised to accommodate either a very comfortable 2m wide bed with feather mattress or 2 twin beds. Bedlinen is luxury 400 count thread cotton. Your ensuite bathroom has a shower in bath and your private

I have been living in France for 20 years and have created a warm and welcoming Bed & Breakfast environment within the smart but comfortable top floor apartment that I am looking forward to sharing with you.

52 Clichy is the only B&B in the 2016 Frommer's Paris Day by Day guidebook and it is listed as the Best Value property in Paris. 'Make yourselves at home' is the only house rule.

As the B&B overlooks an inner courtyard and private gardens, 52 Clichy is an oasis of calm and peace where birdsong is normally the loudest noise you will hear - this is surprising because you are in the heart of the city, with the Moulin Rouge and Montmartre just a few minutes walk away to the North and the luxury shopping area and the Paris Opéra to the South.

Your bedroom can be organised to accommodate either a very comfortable 2m wide bed with feather mattress or 2 twin beds. Bedlinen is luxury 400 count thread cotton. Your ensuite bathroom has a shower in bath and your private WC is opposite (as in most French homes the toilet is separate from the bathroom).

However you won't spend too much time in the bedroom because you have a large living space and a wonderfully sunny terrace (from which breakfast will be provided on warm mornings). Why not take an aperitif on the terrace before dinner whilst planning your next day's schedule or spend the evenings relaxing on the comfortable sofas in the living room resting your feet after walking around the city all day.

Breakfast is an important moment in the B&B experience I offer, it is the time for great discussions and lots of laughter, many questions and answers, when I may help with your itinerary, explain the intricacies of French life or just how to use the metro!

For those who have difficulty walking, there are NO steps / stairs to deal with - there is a modern elevator from the ground floor to the front door of the apartment and the apartment is Wheelchair friendly - Internal doors are at least 80cms / 31 inches wide - if you need a wheelchair at times the B&B is perfect though you need to be able to take a couple of steps to access the balcony. If you are completely wheelchair-bound take a look at my apartment by searching for '52 Clichy apartment ' as it is completely functional for wheelchair users.

There is Free (and very fast - 100 Mb/s) fibre optic internet access and Wifi. The internet provider also offers free telephone calls to almost all landlines around the World and calls to cell phones in the USA and Canada.

I love this area as we are so central, we are an ideal base for walking / visiting all that Paris has to offer. We are surrounded by great local restaurants (just ask for my list!) especially those dotted around Montmartre on the way to the fabulous Sacré Coeur that dominates the Parisian skyline.

Transportation is excellent, there are 3 metro stations on rue de Clichy which is only half mile long ! There are also dozens of buses from Place de Clichy and St Lazare passing all the places you want to go. If you want to go further afield, in 5 minutes walk you can catch a train from St Lazare train station to Versailles Chateau or Monet's Gardens or even to the Normandy Beaches.

If you arrive by car there is a secure Car Park very close by (ask for the internet link) and if you book in advance it is half price and 'Vélib' & 'Autolib' (bike & car hire) stations are just opposite the building for the brave at heart.

Why stay here and not close to Notre Dame ? If you take your map of Paris and draw a line from Montmartre/SacréCoeur church in the North, to the Arc de Triomphe in the West, scoop round the Eiffel Tower to Notre Dame on the Island in the middle of the Seine and back to Montmartre you have a triangle with the Opera Garnier in the heart of the city. Rue de Clichy is just 3 minutes from there!

Also we don't suffer the downside of any of the very touristy areas ; constant traffic noise, millions of tourists and the accompanying awful tourist restaurants. Here we are close enough to walk to everything but just far enough away to have an amazing garden view, THAT terrace, birdsong, no traffic noise and excellent local restaurants so you have a real Parisian Experience.

The Ile-de-France region

If you must leave Central Paris then from St Lazare train station at the bottom of the road you can take a 30 minute shuttle to the Chateau de Versailles, it is the easiest way to get there.

A direct train from St Lazare takes you directly to Giverny and Monet's Gardens whilst visiting the Bayeux tapestry and the Normandy Beach coastline is easily possible in a day trip.

In only 45 minutes on a TGV train from the Gare du Nord train station, just 15 minutes from us, you can be champagne tasting in Reims in the Champagne region!

Central Paris

Left, left and 2nd left are the directions necessary to arrive in less than 5 minutes at the Moulin Rouge and the base of Montmartre. Walk straight down the hill to the luxury Grands Magasins (Galeries Lafayette & Printemps) and the Opéra all in less than 10 minutes.

Surrounded by excellent restaurants in this local area you are close to everything but without being disturbed by the bustle of tourists.

“Feels like home, and great, convenient location.”

Reviewed 15 Apr 2016

Great, homey apartment. Has everything you need from clean bathrooms, bright natural light in the unit, to amazing breakfast (homemade yogurt, beautiful fruit plate, and amazing breads and pastries). It is located just a 10 minutes' walk from Galeries Lafayette: close enough to the city-center, yet far enough to not feel suffocated.

Dear Noodee, Thank you for your review of the B&B, it is always lovely to see you during each Fashion Week at least twice a year and I look forward to seeing you again soon. Regards,

We stayed with Rosemary for 5 nights in October. Lovely apartment, our room was very comfortable as was our entire stay. Breakfast was beautiful with Rosemary presenting us each morning with a different selection of fresh pastries and breads from the local bakery, along with fresh fruit, orange juice and coffee. The location is fantastic, as it is easy to get around to see all the sights and sounds of Paris. Rosemary saved us time with helpful tips on how to better plan our activities. The neighborhood restaurants in the area were fantastic and we chose three of them from Rosemary's website. The locals in the area were very friendly and we felt safe walking up to Montmartre and Sacre Coeur in the evenings. We plan on returning next year.

Dear Leanne and Jeff, Thank you so much for your super review. Great to know that you think my restaurant recommendations which are also on my website are as amazing as I think they are. Also so happy to her that you have already decided to return to see me next year, I look forward to it. Regards,

We stayed with Rosemary in her B&B for three nights early this month. It was like staying with a friend. When we arrived we were invited to make ourselves at home and offered lots of information about the area and the restaurants we might like to try. Our room was attractively furnished, very clean and the bed extremely comfortable. The breakfast Rosemary prepared and shared with us in the common living area was wonderful: juice, fresh fruit, yoghurt, coffee and tea, and each morning Rosemary bought a different baguette or pastry for us to try. The apartment is a real oasis from all the hustle and bustle of this vibrant exciting area of Montmartre, and Rosemary is an extremely agreeable hostess.

Dear Alison and Peter, After such a long boating trip through Europe I am so glad you enjoyed your last stop so much. Really enjoyed the discussions at breakfast although I am certain neither you nor I will believe Peter was right about French vs English book publishing - the French print book spines upside down! Looking forward to your next visit. Regards,

“Quiet, clean, comfortable, convenient accomodation in Paris with English speaking host”

Reviewed 22 Aug 2015

This was our first trip to Paris and we were thankful to have a hostess who spoke English and could help us find our way around the city. Rosemary gave us exactly the right advice that we needed to make our plans and find our way without too much difficulty. Rue de Clichy is about midway between the Opera and Moulin Rouge, so it's not on the river; hence the traffic and crowds are not as bad. The condo is in a very nice place with excellent security; the balcony a very pleasant place to have breakfast and visit. Rosemary ate breakfast with us and that was a good way to catch up and and plan for the day. She bought fresh pastries from a local bakery every morning and provided that along with varied fruits and yogurts and juice. The bedroom and bath are nice and very clean. We really appreciated all that Rosemary did to help make our stay enjoyable. We were there for 6 nights.

Dear Peggy and Steve, Thank you for the lovely review and the flowers which I have dried to perfection. I will contact you for the 'recipe' for the washing powder once you have had time to settle now that I see from Facebook that you are home. Regards,

“Lovely and friendly place to stay”

Reviewed 21 Aug 2015

Our stay at 52 Clichy was as wonderful as the Rosemary, a great hostess with a lovely sense of humour and charm. Rosemary made our holiday that much better with her advice on places to see, travel within Paris and where to eat. All added up to a excellent experience. We shared her appartment and we felt very comfortable in doing so. It felt so much like visiting and staying with a good friend. Recommend to anyone wanting to experience staying in Paris with a local.

Dear Matt and Jacquie, It was wonderful to meet you and thank you for the lovely review. Thank you also for all the laughs on the balcony, mostly at the expense of Matt but he seemed prepared for it! Sorry that your internet connections for the rest of your holiday were not easy so I look forward to finding out about your adventures via Facebook soon. Regards,

“One night in Paris”

Reviewed 8 Jul 2015

This was a same day booking and Rosemary could not have been more accommodating. The apartment was very conveniently located. Rosemary was very welcoming and the room and bathroom were spotless. Everything worked out very well and we would certainly recommend staying with Rosemary to others.

Dear Nicky and Jasmine, Thank you so much for your very positive review. Next time I hope you will not keep the taxi waiting everywhere and we will have a chance of a breakfast conversation, at least! Regards,

“Wonderful place to stay in Paris!”

Reviewed 22 Jun 2015

52 Clichy B&B is located in a great area of Paris with many wonderful restaurants, bakeries, shops, etc. close by along with access to transportation links that will take you wherever you want to go in Paris as well as Versailles. Our host provided a true "French" breakfast each morning as well as wonderful tips on what to see, best ways to move around the city, places to eat, etc. Can't say enough good things about the experience. Only negative was that we wish we could have stayed longer!

Dear Frank and Terri, Thank you so much for your lovely review. I was a pleasure to get to know you both over breakfast chatting at the table and I am so glad you loved Paris and the apartment. I am looking forward to seeing you both again soon, if Terri can fit me in to her busy holiday schedule! Regards,

“Just as wonderful as our first stay!!”

Reviewed 20 May 2015

Last May a friend and I stayed at Rosemary's for the first time. It was a little slice of heaven. Sitting on her beautiful balcony and the incredible breakfast - fruit, yogurt, fresh pastries picked up that morning and french press coffee would be enough to make it special, but having an English host who can give you all sorts of tips and help is invaluable. The building is beautiful, very secure, has an elevator and is central to transportation so you can get anywhere if you don't want to walk. When I surprisingly got another opportunity to go to Paris this year, I contacted Rosemary right away to book her place. I took a different friend this year and she fell in love with 52 Clichy and Rosemary, just as we did last year.

“True apartment living in Paris-with an amazing terrace and breakfasts to boot!”

Reviewed 15 May 2015

I've already sent prospective guests to Rosemary for their Parisian stay. What a lovely apartment with awesome building views out of all the windows. The delicious breakfasts are beautiful too. Rosemary made a coffee drinker out of me with her French press coffee each morning! She also is extremely helpful with where you need to go, how you need to get there and what you need to do. I made a dear friend staying in Rosemary's apartment.

“Comfortable, quiet and central”

Reviewed 14 Dec 2014

The title says it all, except that Rosemary is a welcoming and knowledgable host - and for those who don't know Paris she is a fount of useful information. Breakfast for me was perfect, the flat was warm, and the beds very comfortable. The location is very central with easy access to the Metro. To be recommended.
