My wife and I have just returned from a three night stay at Manoir de Beauregard. We booked this delightful accommodation, formerly a hunting lodge, based on previous TripAdvisor comments and were not disappointed. Madame Marie-Rose Girard is a charming and attentive host who takes great care in making sure that each guest feels that they are staying in a friend’s home in Paris. When we first arrived around 8 o’clock in the evening she greeted us with the offer of an aperitif and some nibbles while she told us (in excellent English) about our room, the house and the neighbourhood. We had taken a taxi from Charles de Gaulle airport - the metered cost was almost exactly 50 euros. Breakfast is served at a communal table hosted by Marie-Rose and we enjoyed both the interesting conversation and the delicious food – freshly-squeezed orange juice, the legendary hot chocolate and French toast, fruit compote with yogurt, together with a selection of baked goods including a variety of home-made cakes and jams: the artisan-made butter and cheese had a wonderful flavour that mass-produced versions cannot achieve. We stayed in two different rooms – the Garden Room and the Chinese Blue Room - both quiet, beautifully furnished and very comfortable. Therese, the housekeeper, ensures that everything in the house is kept in tip-top condition. Central Paris can be reached quickly - the Manoir is within a short walk of at least two Metro stations – Place de Fetes where there is an excellent market and Botzaris near which there is a very pleasant park. We had an evening flight home, and near the Metro station at Place de Fetes we caught the No. 48 bus which took us to Gare du Nord where we used the excellent left luggage facilities so that we could enjoy the day in Paris before returning to take the RER train to the airport. There are several nearby restaurants but we liked Le Zephyr, recommended by Marie-Rose, which is about a fifteen minute walk. It is in a completely un-touristy neighbourhood, very French and serves good food at an affordable price.
We warmly recommend the whole experience!
