Notre Dame district

Bed & Breakfast

A little gem in the centre of Paris and run by an enthusiastic owner - she and her daughter love the contact their guests bring. Charming


2 rooms


Rooms sleep 2 - 4


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.

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.

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.


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.


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.

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!

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.

This is a little gem in the centre of Paris - we had a very warm welcome from the owner and loved our stay. The family room has a charming mezzanine floor where the children had a secret hideaway. The room, bathroom and breakfast room are clean and welcoming and the breakfast very tasty. Notre Dame and the Seine are literally at the end of the road and the whole of Paris is at your feet. Would definitely recommend.


Fantastic location, just opposite Notre-Dame, on the Rive Gauche! The room is basic but very clean and the bed is extremely comfortable. We haven't had the pleasure of meeting the landlady, but she has been very efficient in dealing with the booking and in providing us with the information needed. Great value for money.


Charming place in a perfect central location. Sweet hostess willing to provide all info to make my stay even better.I really enjoyed the central location and being able to walk to the MArais across the ILe St Louis. I was there in winter and the place was lovely and cosy warm. Would go back ! Very quiet in the middle of the city !

We stayed in the Red Room for 2 nights – it was clean and cosy – a small oasis in the centre of Paris, tucked away off a side street and overlooking a quiet courtyard. The Seine and Notre Dame are literally round the corner and there are many excellent galleries, shops, cafes and bars nearby. Brigitte is a warm and welcoming host – we had a delightful stay, it was a truly authentic Parisian experience!

Thankyou Brigitte for the most wonderful stay. You made us feel welcome, comfortable and offered ideas and visits to enhance our stay. We could not have asked for a more idyllic location and your home and its views are well kept and beautiful! We hope to stay again on our next trip to Paris


This was the perfect place for our two night stay in Paris during the summer holidays. The mezzanined room was ideal for the four of us, and it was very peaceful even though we were right in the centre of Paris. Brigitte looked after us really well, and there were loads of useful leaflets and maps. We'd definitely stay there again.


An excellent place to stay. I would highly recommend it. Right in the heart of Paris yet really quiet. The family room is perfect with your own dining room adjoining so there's room to play board games in the evening if you're travelling with children and don't want to stay out late. Madame Chatignoux is the perfect host offering helpful advice on where to go and how to get there. We will definitely stay again.


I recently stayed in the RED ROOM, belonging to Madame Chatignoux. Not only is she a lovely lady, she is also accommodating & has the room set up with all the information for around the area & Paris in general. Its well set up; the bed is comfy; the view is lovely & its in a great location! Will hopefully be able to stay again.. Thank you Madame! :)


We have been using Special Places ti Stay for a few years now and have always been delighted with the results.Our most recent find was Madame Chatignoux in Rue Maitre Albert in Paris.We would like to express our pleasure in finding a Chambre d hote in a prime location with a hostess who was second to none being informative helpful and courteous.we enjoyed the "buzz" of Centreville contrasting with the tranquility of an apartment built around a courtyard. Perfect. Certainly one to return to.


I spent 6 nights here and it was fantastic!! Close to great restaurants, museums, art galleries, the Marais. The room was quiet, comfortable and very clean. Brigitte was the perfect land lady, providing maps, visitor information and milk on arrival. She very kindly let me use her personal phone when I had to report my mobile phone stolen. I recommend her property without reservation and hope to have the chance to stay there again.
