Clarisse ; grand-daughter of Madeleine

My personal Versailles story …

This city seduced and captured my heart from the beginning. And after living here for many years it still continues to fascinate me… with its architecture, green spaces, charming boutiques, friendly shopkeepers, gourmet restaurants, cake shops and cycle paths. Not to mention one of its greatest advantages, its proximity to Paris!

Why « Madeleine Furnished Flats »?

The name was chosen in honor of my Grand Mére Madeleine, whom I worshipped and adored. She was always a ray of sunshine in my life, so warm and welcoming, showering me and others with her special attention and care. Handpicked flowers from her garden, delights from her cozy kitchen and her famous concoction of summer time punch are just a few ways she liked to spoil her family and friends. Her door was always open for an impromptu visit  or planned event.

My wish is to continue in this spirit and welcome my guess “at home” in Versailles.
