Paris Arrondissement 18 apartment description

This romantic and beautiful studio apartment (formerly known as 'Le Diamant') has been freshly designed and renovated with the utmost attention to detail. Located on a quiet one-way street which was made famous by the hit movie “Le Fabuleux Destin d’Amelie Poulain” (yes that Amelie!), it promises you a stay to remember.

As a very spacious studio, the apartment is well laid-out to feel very large, but still cozy for a romantic getaway. From the high-security front door, one enters into a small foyer, which connects to both the bathroom and the bedroom area. The comfortable queen-sized bed is framed with ample storage space. High quality linens adorn the bed. The bedroom area can be separated from the living room by drawing a heavy decorative curtain, to span the width of the apartment -- great for additional family or friends using both sleeping spaces.

Beyond the main sleeping area is the living room and a luxurious sofa bed, above which is a magnificent map of ancient Paris. We don’t recommend that you use this map to plan your site-seeing route, but it is fun to try, nevertheless!

Opposite the sofa and fitting quite well into the apartment’s striking black and ivory color scheme, is a professional Yamaha black gloss piano, available for use by beginners and virtuosi alike. Above the piano is the flat screen television and DVD player to make your downtime more enjoyable with lots of fun Parisien DVDs to watch. The television comes with cable access to over 100 channels, including CNN and BBC World.

The kitchen has been created so that you can do as much or as little cooking as you would like. With a low profile four-burner stove, a full sized oven, separate microwave, and refrigerator with freezer compartment, there is little in the way of culinary creation that can’t be accomplished here. All the necessary utensils, plates, bowls and flatware are at your disposal. As with Paris itself, you are limited only by your imagination!

From the entrance foyer, on the right is a laundry closet, which houses a washer dryer combination as well as a separate drying rack, ironing board and iron.

Opposite the front door is the large bathroom, with toilet, full sized tub and shower with rainfall showerhead. A vanity and medicine cabinet provide space for your toiletries as well as the ample supply of fluffy towels that are provided for your use.

Staying connected will be easy from 'Romantique Montmartre', with free WiFi internet access and unlimited free telephone calls to over 70 countries, including the U.S., Canada and Australia.

The Area Around 'Romantique Montmartre'

This is the Montmartre we know as depicted in the movie 'Amelie Poulain.' In fact, the corner market she visited is just down the street! And even though a few cars do go down this charming street, it's just about as quiet a spot in Paris as you can find.

The imposing Sacré Coeur (La Basilique du Sacré Coeur de Montmartre) is just a short walk away, as is the artists' square, Place du Tertre, the Montmartre Cemetery (Cimetière de Montmartre), Le Moulin Rouge and the only working vineyard in Paris. In the immediate vicinity are numerous cafés, restaurants and quaint drinking spots.

Montmartre is a hill which claims to be the location at which the Jesuit order of priests was founded and the home to many famous artists who had studios there -- such as Salvador Dalí, Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso and Vincent van Gogh. At the end of the 19th-century, the area developed into a center of free-wheeling and decadent entertainment. Here is where was (and still is) the popular cabaret, the Moulin Rouge, and at Le Chat Noir, artists, singers and performers regularly appeared including Yvette Guilbert, Marcelle Lender, Aristide Bruant, La Goulue, Georges Guibourg, Mistinguett, Fréhel, Jane Avril, Damia and others.

Montmartre is an officially designated historic district with limited development allowed in order to maintain its historic and romantic character. A funicular railway, the Funiculaire de Montmartre, operated by RATP, ascends the hill from the south while the 'Montmartrobus' circles the hill.

The Abbeses Métro is just a few minutes walk from the apartment along with several buses. There is no shortage of wonderful neighborhood bistros, markets, boutiques and amenities of all kinds.

This is a very special corner of Paris with a special ambiance all its own that will seduce you, no doubt!

                    The creamy white domes of this basilica soar high above Paris. Inside is an artistic and archeological explosion of color and form; out front are sweeping views of the gorgeous city in soft pastels.

                    This is the quiet resting place of many famous people including Degas, Berlioz, Truffaut, Stendhal and others. This cemetery is very close to Rue Lepic where Van Gogh lived with his brother Theo.

                    Right next to the Sacre Coeur is this old square filled with artists just waiting to draw your portrait. It's a bit touristy and you'll need to barter to get a reasonable price, but it's a charming place if you don't mind the bustle.

                    Just out of the metro Abbesses, is this great street that runs parallel to where the apartment is. The unusual rust red church on the left with the turquoise mosaics is the neo-Gothic St-Jean-de-Montmartre. The rest of the street has plenty of great shops for fresh produce, cafes, restaurants, florists, dress shops etc.
