Great location, walking distance from the restaurants and market. Wonderful room and facility, including great breakfast. Most important warm hospitality and great recommendations on activities and wine in the area.

Fantastic newly refurbished property with a nice fresh decor throughout, an extremely comfortable bed and all the essential facilities. The owners are a lovely couple and recommended places to eat, drink as well as sights to see. Would definitely recommend and return in the future.

lovely, clean, new accommodation, conveniently located to town and walking distance from most restaurants. Best hair dryer I have ever come across, peaceful setting and beautiful pool and garden to lounge about. Thank you to Annelise and Colin for their friendliness and hospitality.

What a great surprise. Beautifully decorated room with everything you need. Our view of the mountains from the 'Rochelle' room was spectacular. Perfectly located 2 blocks from town. Easy walking distance to all the main sights. Hosts were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend.

It was my husband's birthday and I had emailed Annelise prior to arriving and she upgraded us to a beautiful upstairs suite. Then, Colin and Annelise spent so much time making the perfect dinner reservation... More

Such a lovely stay, from the hosts being so welcoming and accommodating to our needs (as we had to get up early they prepared breakfast boxes) and the rooms were stunning. Would definitely recommend Le Petit Paris. It went beyond my expectations of a B&B. Will be back on our next visit.
