Still owned by the original family, this beautiful 1799 mansion is one of the oldest villas in the area.
Your warm and welcoming hosts, Mary-Rose and Georges, are a perfect introduction to Paris. We want to adopt them as our French grandparents forever. Their home is comfortable, quiet, and peaceful. Their sumptuous breakfasts are full-on French gourmet, with home-baked cakes, fruit compote, fresh-squeezed orange juice, yoghurt, fresh local cheeses, amazing brioche, teas, coffee, hot chocolate, and home-made fruit preserves from their country home on the outskirts of Paris. Every morning the table was beautifully set with patterned linens and the family silverware and china; they included us in their family breakfast. Our many questions were always answered with expert local knowledge, whether about museums, restaurants, or how to get to where. It was such a fine experience; we’ll stay there again.
The day we arrived, jet-lagged at 3pm, Mary-Rose and Georges were ready with madelines hot from their oven, tea, and tawny port. What could be better?
Our Blue de Chine suite is newly remodeled, has classical French décor, and very comfortable, with excellent beds and linens. The bathroom is newly remodeled, too. The lilacs were blooming in their manicured yard during our visit there on the Rue des Lilas.
The B&B is less than 15 minutes by Metro (Line 11) to downtown in an entirely French neighborhood; no tourists, traffic noise, or buses.
The nearby Belleville area is a great walk; all French, no tourists, excellent pastisseries, boulangeries, and bistros. It can be part of a loop from Manoir de Beauregard to the lovely Parc des Buttes-Chaumont.
The Manoir is the eastern perimeter of the singularly delightful Quartier de la Mouzaïa. (Search on the name for photos.) Several blocks of cobblestone, pedestrian-only streets with picturesque village homes from the 1870s to 1930s. Mary-Rose’s ancestor, the builder of Manoir de Beauregard, operated several windmills here on the Butte de Beauregard, at the same time that windmills turned on Montmartre to the west...which you can see from the top floor rooms.
Or you could pay the same for a tiny room in a heavily touristed area, with coffee & croissants.
