B&B Brigitte is a welcome haven for travelers seeking a cozy, secure home in the city centre, easy/safe walking distance to all the main sights and with a supportive, friendly host. Brigitte is an art historian and loves to host guests in her quintessential 17thC family home, that is filled with art, family heirlooms & antique furnishings.
This is a traditional, historic and authentic B&B in Paris where you will feel like you have just stepped back in time to 17th Century Paris, staying in a romantic, nostalgic little nook, moments from all the literary haunts that this neighbourhood is famous for, like the infamous Shakespeare & co bookstore. This B&B is registered with the Marie de Paris classified as an authentic traditional B&B homestay.
On arrival at your home you will receive a very warm family welcome from Brigitte, a very loyal and very experienced B&B host. She has been hosting travellers for over 20 years - way before the B&B world became the 'trend' over hotels and apartments. Brigitte loves Paris dearly and knows the best ways to discover the city of foot or on bicycle. She is a lover of art and Paris history and loves to share her tips and knowledge with guests who she often invites into her private section of her home, her warm lounge room, to enjoy for a tea and chat. Sometimes she invites a close friend of hers to join you. Brigitte speaks French and English and understands some Italian and Spanish (limited).
About the location:
Our building is located in the heart of Paris on the left-bank (5eme), on a very sought-after, quiet, safe and very central street - 'Rue Maitre-Albert' a traditional ancient street (one of Paris' oldest) with antique bookshops and antique decor shops, craft-men and artist workshops and 2 restaurants on the street.
The home is located mere steps to the Seine river too making it a very sought after and exclusive location as you will reach the Seine islands - ile de la Cite, Ile Saint Louis - and the Notre Dame Cathedral (which can be seen by merely walking down to the end of your small street) in seconds.
The building is also within walking distance (10mins approx) to the bustling chic and classic Saint-Germain-des-Pres neighbourhood with its cult cafes, brasseries, boutique shops and more. Also nearby the Sorbonne university, Cluny Museum (Medieval Art museum), transport facilities (metro and bus 3 mins away). B&B Brigitte is the ideal base to explore then best of Paris.
About the home:
This is a home and location that is not for the modern or minimalist lover, but rather for those who seek a REAL Parisian home with a simple regality about it, unpretentious atmosphere, classic wood floors complete with the creaks and squeaks and typical Parisian charm of old. There are tiled floors, slanted doorways and windows - the perfect authentic Paris.
This is also a very lived in home and guests can expect to feel like they are staying at a great aunts house, with old historic books, art, family heirloom and many stories to be told by Brigitte our lovely host who LOVES to chat with travelers in her home, encouraging them to explore the city like a local, sharing her secret spots with them as well as all her safety advice.
The home despite being classic and lived in, is impeccably presented, clean and very organised, guests will still feel very much like guests who have been carefully thought of and catered to with professionalism and wonderful hospitality. Towels, bed linens are all quality assured, basic are toiletries provided.
Petite B&B Brigitte offers 2 private entry guest rooms with entries straight off the hallway which means guests do not have to pass through Brigitte’s quarters first. One guest room is a double guestroom with private ensuite bathroom for 2 guests and the other is a loft style family suite with double bed and 2 twin beds (that children love) for a family of 4. The family suite also has an additional adjoining private dining room where breakfast is served.

Brigitte will also be likely to cordially invite you to her lovely lounge room for a chat sometime over tea as she really does love getting to know her Guests and hearing about their lives and thoughts.

Comment: Brigitte is absolutely lovely. She gave us many ideas for restaurants and was always available if we needed help with anything. The apartment was immaculate and probably the best place I’ve ever stayed in. I have never felt so central in my life! Even the building was something to tour around because it was so quintessentially French. Bed was super comfy and the hot water was always working. Also the window in the room was the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen with an absolutely stunning view. We went in the height of summer as well and the room was always a comfortable temperature. I will definitely be back!!

Comment: Thank you Brigitte for your hospitality and kindness. Brigitte attended to all our needs and was most attentive providing lots of valuable information and help. Suggesting places we could visit and ensuring we could get there by detailing maps for us. We were very comfortable and loved being with you. We felt at home and welcome. Thank you once again. We look forward to returning and enjoying your hospitality again. Our Warmest Regards Freda and Stephen Ennor

Comment: Very pleasant stay in a comfortable apartment with easy access to many sights. Brigitte was so friendly and helpful for exploring Paris and our daughters loved being tucked away in the loft of the family room with so many books to browse. Highly recommended.

Comment: We spent a lovely three nights here with our grandson. Madame Chatignoux was welcoming and made us feel at home. We loved walking a couple of yards up the road to the Seine and seeing a great view of Notre Dame. We are looking forward to returning next year with our grand daughter.

Comment: I love the feeling of returning to Paris when I turn onto rue Maitre-Albert, pass the Antinea pizza place on the left and Le Onze bar on the right, catch a glimpse of Notre Dame and the end of the rue and arrive at the big blue-green doors at number 7. Madame Chatignoux-Roussel is a wonderful host and I will always treasure my visits with her.

Comment: We - 2 adults with children of 3 & 11 - wanted to stay in a reasonably priced B&B in central Paris. This was just the job. The bedroom was large enough for all of us, and even though our 3 year old did not fancy sleeping above us in the mezzanine beds, there was plenty of room for the 3 of us in the bottom bed, leaving the 11 year old with the upper space to herself. There was a separate bathroom and a breakfast area, which was handy for sharing a bottle of wine, once the children were asleep. Brigitte was friendly and accommodating, and we had a two good nights in a perfect location.
