Property description

The Area: The cobble street corner of rue des Martyrs and rue des Abbesses is right in the centre of one of the most vivacious parts of Paris. Rue des Martyrs and the neighbouring streets have housed many famous artists such as Toulouse-Lautrec, Renoir, Moreau, and more. Today, it is still a busy area for art dealers and collectors.

This area has many different styles and moods. We feel that ours is that of the calmer, old style Montmartre. You could easily spend your whole vacation within a five minute walk in any direction from the apartment: the Basilique du Sacre Coeur, the Dali Museum, theatres, night clubs, a tremendous variety of fresh food stores and markets, bakeries, chocolateries, restaurants, brasseries, and bistros. The closest metro station, Abbesses, is only a two minute walk away. It is located in the lovely Square des Abbesses - where 'Amelie' fell in love!

Location: Line 12 of the metro brings you directly to Pigalle and the Moulin Rouge, Concorde, and its fantastic gardens, St-Germain-des-Pres and its writers, Montparnasse and its artists. See us on a map. Metro Abbesses is truly in the heart of old Montmartre. It is a place to explore with your feet - walking from one charming road to the next. If you aren't up to doing it on your own, there are organized tours that leave bi-weekly from the Abbesses station. You could also take the Montmartrobus to see the neighborhood.

You'll be welcomed by an English speaker who also speaks fluent French and a bottle of wine will be waiting for you for a nice Parisian start. This is a real 'Parisian', vibrant street, but once you get back home to the cozy apartment you'll find how quiet and peaceful living on top floor is (with an elevator, of course), well insulated, if desired, by double-curtained, double-glass windows. This apartment is designed for a fully, comfortable urban living: comfortable sitting area with entertainment equipment, dining area with a table for four plus an option for six.

There is also a very effective heater and air-conditioner unit in the salon. This newly renovated kitchen is fully-equipped for almost any gastronomic task, including an espresso maker which you can use to make a cup for breakfast. You can enjoy the rare treat of sipping your coffee while overlooking the rooftops of the city. To make it even more irresistible, try some delicious pastry from the boulangerie down the street (15 seconds walk!).

Additionally, we have a washer, dryer, and dishwasher. The bedroom has a very large closet for your luggage, clothes and new purchases. You'll enjoy waking up in our queen-size bed with the sunshine streaming in to greet you. One look out of the window when you away will make you think you are in a Parisian paradise with the beautiful view of Sacre Coeur. The salon sofa opens easily into an additional bed. We've selected mostly original pictures to decorate the wall and insisted on hand made Asian rugs. In addition, there are a few amusing finds picked at the famous Parisian flea markets.

There are large, sunny windows in all the rooms and the bathroom has a ceiling matte window, providing beautiful light with maximum privacy, and a controlled natural ventilation. The rare panoramic view from this Montmartre nest spans uninterruptedly from Sacre Coeur in the north, the horizon in the east and, finally, the overwhelming southern view of Paris seen from your breakfast table. Above the rooftops of Montmartre you'll see the Notre Dame, the Odeon and much further.
