Paris Arrondissement 9 apartment description

This fantastic 2-bedroom apartment is in Quartier Martyrs, a real French neighbourhood. It is a clean, well-equipped property, ideal for a young family and best of all it is, as the French might say, à deux pas from rue des Martyrs, of which the New York Times said in a recent article, there is no better place to rent an apartment and to pretend, even for a brief time, to live in Paris.

Actually, this is better than the other apartments, because in this apartment each of the two bedrooms is off the street and onto cool and quiet courtyard areas. A quiet night's sleep, the benefits cannot be overestimated!

The property is located at number 6 rue St Lazare, at the junction of rue St Lazare, rue des Martyrs and rue Notre-Dame de Lorette. If you stand at the bottom of rue des Martyrs and look North, you can see up to the basilica of Sacré Coeur, one of Paris’s most famous landmarks.

This apartment is right behind Notre-Dame de Lorette Metro station and within two minutes of leaving the front door, you can be on the platform on the number 12 Metro line.

The Metro is the fastest way of getting about the city, although the buses are also very good. Paris is small enough, that most of the time you can simply walk to almost wherever you want to go. To make it easy for you, I have walked the city and can tell you now that you can reach the apartment by walking downhill from Gare du Nord in around 15 minutes. You can also walk right to Galeries Lafayette on Boulevard Haussmann in 15 minutes and be at the Opéra Garnier in the same time. Of course, the other Grand Magasins of Paris are right nearby too. Once you are at the Opéra, it is not far to the Louvre and if you are at the Louvre, you could easily wander over the Seine and down into St Germain des Près.

You might stop off on the way to look in the many interesting little shops, cafés and bars on the way. You might spend your 15 minutes walking to the great brasserie Mollard for dinner. The Time Out guide for Paris has quite a few recommendations even closer to the apartment, including one Chez Jean, which is just two doors away.

Frankly, you may never wish to leave the ninth. It is a fantastic neighbourhood that wants for nothing. Traditional French boucheries, traiteurs, boulangeries and patisseries are all vying for your business, not to mention the bars, café's and restaurants. The area has its own website, which is in French only, a link which can be found on my main website for the property.

The double living and dining area is spacious and bright, with amenities including Wifi high speed internet, a 32 inch widescreen TV with digital channels including CNN and BBC, DVD player, and a stereo with CD Player, which plays mp3 CDs and has a special cable to connect in your iPod. Tucked in a corner is a proper desk for if you really need to work. The seating area contains leather club armchairs and a top grade sofa-bed that sleeps 2 and converts with no effort at all.

The dining table and chairs can seat six in comfort. After all, you will want to dine properly with all that great produce on your doorstep.

                I retired several years ago thus enabling me and my wife to spend a few months in Paris most years and for the last few years we have chosen the St. Lazare apt. Probably the main reason is the manager, Paula Caballero, who jumps through hoops to make you feel like her most important client, bolstered by the British owner who is most cooperative and is not at all averse to spending money to keep everything functioning smoothly. We are very pleased with the location, right at the foot of Rue des Martyrs which is the premier market street in the area. There is a metro stop (Notre Dame de Lorettes) literally just across the street, two ATM machines downstairs and multiple bus lines within one block. The neighborhood has attracted a plethora of excellent bistros and restaurants which is always a sign of a vibrant quarter; coincidentally, the excellent restaurant critic/author Alex Lobrano lives close by. The apt. itself is roomy and comfortable with an excellent, well equipped kitchen, separate laundry room with U.S. style washer and dryer and that rarity of rarities a large bathroom with a separate shower and bath tub. Even though the 9th arrondissement has become one of the rising stars, the rental prices are still much more reasonable than the 6th & 7th where my fellow Americans tend to swarm. The best recommendation I can give is that we have re-reserved this Spring and Fall.

                Recommended for: Adventure seekers, girls getaway, age 55+, sightseeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway.

                Visited Paris with hubby and two young daughters . This was the first leg of our month long journey through France and Paris. I dealt with Paula over the Internet to arrange details and she was always prompt and polite. I was SO relieved when the transportation service she recommended to get us to the airport to the apartment was there waiting, on time. We arrived to the apartment and there she was also waiting for us. One never knows what to expect when booking over the Internet , but Paula and the apartment exceeded our expectations and we are in the travel and tourism business . The whole booking and checking in process was flawless, apartment was clean and lovely (showed better then pictures) , Internet was great! Great shopping in neighbourhood including handy grocery store and very close to train station. Security deposit was refunded right away. We will be staying he again. Thank you! Thank you ! Thank you! We will be staying here again!!

                Our family of five adults spent a week in this lovely apartment. We were very comfortable. We enjoy cooking and found the kitchen equipped for all our needs. The apartment is the perfect marriage between old charm and modern convenience. We loved coming "home" in the evenings, putting our very tired feet up and sipping wine with the windows open to the street...Sometimes the traffic could be loud, but we all commented on how well the windows silenced the noise when closed. The location is very convenient...short walks to public transportation and an ATM machine just outside the front door. There are delightful food shops right around every corner. Paula was wonderful and very accomodating to our last minute travel plan changes. Our entire family highly recommend this "home away from home"!

                We are a family of 5 ( 2 adults and 3 young childs) and we had a wonderful stay in Paris. The apartment was good, with everything we needed, clean , everything worked and on a good location ( very close to the subway station and many places to buy food) The neighborhood was really cute. Thanks Paula for your warm welcome and hospitality.

                This is an excellent property and a great place for our month-long stay in Paris. The building is secure, the apartment is well-furnished and so clean. You will love the washer and dryer, and the full kitchen. Paula was a dream to deal with! The neighborhood offers many choices for food -- a convenient grocery store across the street, fresh food markets, and lots of places to buy take-out. The metro station is right across the street and there are several bus lines to take you anywhere in the city. This is the best apartment I have ever rented in Paris and would definitely recommend St. Lazare to anyone!

                The flat was an excellent base from which to explore Paris. Very comfortable, elegantly furnished, and equipped with everything we needed. Although we pushed the sleeping space to the limits (our 3 children are large teenagers - we effectively had five adults staying there) we felt comfortable. The children were glad of the internet access (we travelled with a laptop). The location was perfect for moving around the city - on the "velib" bikes (two stations to pick these up just round the corner) or the metro (worth getting a "navigo" pass sorted out at the start of the week) or on foot. We loved the feel of the neighbourhood, and at the end of a full and exhausting day of sight-seeing, stepping off the street and into the courtyard at No 6 was a delight. Having a Shoppi supermarket over the road was extremely handy, and the bakery opposite it was lovely. In our dealings with both Paula, the agent, and with the owners we found them to be helpful and efficient. We would love to come again (perhaps when the £ recovers a bit against the euro!) and would definitely like to stay at the flat again.

                We stayed here with 4 children and LOVED the apartment! The apartment was VERY nice, roomy, and well kept. The owners and Paula were VERY accomodating with our late night arrival and Paula was SO helpful giving us specific bus, metro restaurant info - and even mailed us back our daughter's shoes that we'd forgotten! The metro was right out the front door and a grocery store was right behind - perfect. Highly recommend the rotisserie chicken across from the apartment, too! Loved the non-touristy area - French people are SO nice! We couldn't ask for a better Paris vacation! Would definitely stay in this apartment again!!

                We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this apartment - it is in a fantastic location close to the delights of the different food shops in rue des Martyrs. We particularly enjoyed staying in a non-touristy area. Very close to the Metro which was so convenient. The apartment is very well equipped and care for - Paula was particularly helpful and attentive during the reservation process and when we arrived. We have been to Paris a number of times and this will be our first choice next time we visit.

                There are not enough kind words to say about our stay at 6 rue saint lazare! The location, Darin and his wife, the beautiful home, and the culture was unforgetable! I would stay again and I have spread the word of this fantastic home to everyone. Thank you for such an amazing vacation. Sharon and Family
