The Garret is located on the third floor of the main house . There are four Garret rooms: Gaston, Pierre, Carrie, and Jeanne. The history of Garret Rooms dates to 19th century Paris when the city became over populated and attics were converted to accommodate the housing needs of the growing population. The rooms of the Garret are located on the third floor of the main house. Named for the children of the household, Degas’ nieces and nephews, who are documented to have played in the open attic space on rainy days. They are modeled after artists’ studios, and built into the eaves of the house. Degas himself, lived in Parisian garrets. As a “night crawler” he enjoyed the quiet and privacy of the garret removed from the street noise and day light. There are no windows, but all rooms have private baths, hardwood floors, and charming antique furnishings and can accommodate two or three people. Available for long-term rental.
