When we have a few days available in the next 2 weeks, or receive a late cancellation, we would rather be MAKING SOMEBODY HAPPY by renting at a VERY LOW RATE than leaving the apartment unoccupied.
The studio is located on a charming square, the “Place Emile Goudeau'. In 1920-40, our building was the furnished “hotel du Poirier” (Pear tree hotel). Many famous guests lived in (MODIGLIANI, Albert CAMUS, Max JACOB …). PICASSO and other artists lived across in the “BATEAU LAVOIR”.
The view of the studio embraces Paris roofs on the south. One can see “Notre Dame”, “Les invalides”, the Montparnasse tower, the “Museum of modern Art” in les Halles and many more sites.
As a bonus, Phone calls to land lines in France, and to US, Canada and australia are generaly free. It is also true for more than 50 countries. More over, calls to cell phones towards specific countries (often US & Canada) may also be free. Ask us for detail as it may vary with time and policies of operators.
On the left is the Abbesses district, on the right is the Old Montmartre village. The square is planted with big Spanish Oak trees. The area is very safe and calm.
We are in the same block as the fruit and vegetable stand featured in the famous movie 'Le Destin d’Amélie Poulain.'. The Abbesses subway station is 2 mn walk. Most interesting places in Paris may be reached in 15mn.
The studio was designed by my wife who is an architect. It has been entirely renovated in January 2006. It is 270 sq foot. It has a perfectly equiped kitchen, open by a bar on the studio. Located at the third floor, it is very bright and its 2 large windows let the sun in.
The furniture is typical, vintage wooden French furniture.
The apartment comfortably hosts 2 guests. On request, a third guest may sleep on a single bed that can be added for periods under 10 days.
We are living on the fourth floor, just above. We are here if you need help, but do not worry, we will not be intrusive.
Just a point, important to us. We decided to rent the apartment on a short-term basis because customers are mainly foreigners. We enjoy meeting foreign people and believe this is a way to meet nice people as well as getting some return on the apartment. We want people to enjoy their stay as much as possible.
Here is one of the last mail we received from one of our guests:
Bonsoir Jean Noel, many thanks for the superb vacation primarily due to your lovely apartment and the spectacular location.
We really enjoyed the Montmartre experience and its lively street scene. Again thank you for your wonderful hospitality and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
