Recent Paris Arr. 18 (Montmartre, Sacre Coeur) reviews
Loved our "Montmartrois" experience!
We returned the other day from our two week vacation in France. I am rather reluctantly putting your key in the mail today, only because mailing it really truly signals the end of our most wonderful vacation, in large measure due to your great apartment in Paris.
We first spent a week at your apartment in Montmartre, that charming area of Paris with its incredible history, the beautiful Sacré Coeur cathedral, a plethora of cafés and restaurants, oozing Parisian authenticity at every turn. In order to situate ourselves, we took advantage of a couple of guided tours of the area, one we found in the “Pariscope” magazine, another through an English-speaking group we found on the internet. We found them both incredibly helpful in elucidating the history and the excitement of Montmartre and helping us to better make our way around.
Your apartment, while small, was brilliantly laid out and had all the conveniences of home. We were extremely comfortable (loved that bed and the quiet of the courtyard!) and were surprised at the general peace of the whole building. We had great breakfasts every morning (we loved those croissants from the bakery on the rue des Abbesses) and often came home in the evenings with delicacies from the local shops of liver paté, cheese, WINE, and unpronounceable French goodies. We used your microwave quite a bit and kept our goodies in the fridge. We usually had lunch out somewhere as we were exploring the capital. The proximity to the Abbesses metro station was a blessing, and we also tried a couple of the local buses which left from the nearby Place de Pigalle with that weekly metro pass which you suggested we buy.
We truly felt French as we punched in the code in the doorway as if we were natives, and as the tourists stared at us as they went by, we slipped in as if we belonged there. We truly felt we did and your apartment in great measure helped us establish that feeling. We discovered a new word on one of our guided tours: we learned that we were “Montmartrois.” Can’t pronounce it for the likes of me, but loved thinking that I took on that allure.
We went on to Provence after Paris and while we loved the countryside and the Cezanne feeling in the air, we missed the buzz and the excitement of the capital.
Thanks for all your help and guidance, too, as we were sorting through our travel plans. It was terrific dealing with you.
We shall return!!

"Title: Cute apartment in Montmartre
We spent a wonderful few days with my mother in Gabor’s apartment during the summer. It is quiet, and at a great location – the Sacre Cœur is literally a few minutes away if one is willing to climb the stairs. The rooms are extremely clean, all the appliances are in working order and the internet is fast. The beds are comfortable. It is only about 5 minutes walk to the closest subway station and is also great for cyclers – it is safe to leave the bicycles in the courtyard. There is an excellent bakery just around the corner with fresh baguette, croissant and coffee for breakfast.
Overall, I can highly recommend this apartment for anyone who wants to spend a pleasant few days, weeks or months in Paris."

"Fantastic apartment in a great location. We had our pick of bistros and if we weren't in the mood to eat out, the supermarket downstairs is a well stocked alternative. The apartment is large, with plenty of room for us all (5 people in total) and the neighbourhood has a lively, happy feeling about it. We felt safe walking back at night as there were always people about and I found the French to be very polite and friendly. Would definitely recommend. Paula was also great to deal with, she gave clear, handy instructions and all went smoothly."
