Villa Les Coquelicots
Ranked #1 of 3 Argenteuil B&B and Inns
Reviewed 18 August 2014

The 3 apartments are situated at the bottom of Mme Evrard's garden but can be reached via a private door into a rear street. There is on-street parking in this quiet area and we and our car were perfectly safe. Each room has a private bathroom and kitchenette where you could make simple meals if you wished to. Breakfast is waiting for you in a basket outside your door every morning. My husband and I had one of the 2 ground floor apartments and our teens had the first floor apartment which is big enough for 5 and has a lovely balcony where we all had breakfast each morning and entertained our French friends when they visited. You can take the bus from outside the main house to Argenteuil station and from there take the train to Gare St Lazare - only a few minutes walk from there to the Seine, the Eiffel Tower and the bateaux mouches. We had a lovely stay, comfy beds, all very clean, Mme Evrard doesn't speak English but is a helpful and charming host. SO much nicer than the local hotels and good value for money. We'll be back next time we are visiting our friends.

Room Tip: Go for the Peupliers if you are a family and want a bit more space. There is a stairgate to protect...

Selfish as I can be, I am not sure whether I should actually give away my best kept secret: Villa Les Coquelicots is a charming place in one of Argenteuil's nicest neighborhoods, and excellent quality for money for anybody willing to put up with a 15 minute train ride into the heart of Paris. The studio apartments are conveniently located in a separate building across the garden from the main house and are well equipped for both short and long stays. Everything is perfectly clean, and the friendly owners make sure your every wish is catered for. The only downside: there are only three rooms, so book well in advance to make sure one's got your name on it when you need it.

Let me introduce myself. My name is Molly, and I'm a University student. My travel, and life, partner's name is Tristan, and the two of us took a one month journey to Europe this summer. We actually just returned yesterday. We've been together for three years, and lived together for two, so the time seemed right. Although I have never been outside of the U.S. before, Tristan has been to many places, including Mexico, Turkey, and New Zealand. Our trip began in Paris, and that is where we stayed at the wonderful place Villa Les Coquelicots (The Villa of Poppies).

This definitely qualifies as a bed and breakfast. There are indeed beds, and breakfast is wonderful. Maybe it's just because we're American, but the fresh baguettes and croissants delivered every day to our door accompanied by our choice of hot chocolate or coffee and a variety of little butters, jams, and nutella packets was perfect. There is also a private kitchen in the room we stayed in, where we could make our own food. However, both Tristan and I would emphasize the importance of taking advantage of the opportunity to have dinner prepared there for you. Madame Evrard is a wonderful cook, and the French food we had the opportunity to taste was incredible. At only 10 euros a plate (arriving with salad and dessert) it's also cheaper than any good French restaurant you're going to find in Paris.

The room was very clean, and everything was in working order. The beds are comfortable; the kitchen furnished with pots and pans, plates, and glasses; and the bathroom very quaint with plenty of hot water, which is not an accomody found easily in Europe. The house is within easy walking distance of several food stores, an ice cream parlor, hair salons, markets, and other conveniences. The area is residential, even though it is only 15 minutes or so by train from Gare St. Lazare, so it is quiet and safe for families. We didn't rent a car, so I am unsure about parking availability, but locals do just fine so I'm sure it wouldn't be too hard.

Finally, I cannot stress enough what a wonderful family the Evrards are. They were helpful and friendly, even though Tristan and I do not speak any French. Any time we had questions, they were happy to help, and our trip to Paris could not have been better. Having a safe, comfortable place to stay at night is well worth the very affordable price, and I would recommend Villa Les Coquelicots to anyone.

Room Tip: Tristan and I stayed in the Dahlias room (House Dahlias on the website). We were very pleased with i...

We recently spent the weekend in Paris for a birthday party. French friends booked this accommodation for us. It proved to be very good value for money, the rooms are very comfortable and clean. The hosts were very welcoming and breakfast is delivered to the door. Parking is in the street which is not ideal but proved not to be a problem. Argenteuil is close to Paris with good links by train, and also very close to the upmarket suburb of Enghien les Bains.
In summary a good value for money option for those wanting to visit Paris and stay in family accommodation.

Room Tip: Sorry I clicked on swimming pool by mistake? The property has no pool.
