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!!

"I just wanted to take a moment to tell you how much my family and I enjoyed our stay in Basilique. We are a family of five, with children ranging in age from 8 to 14, and the apartment was perfect for us. Everything about the process, from making the reservation through return of the security deposit was simple and very well explained. The apartment was clean with modern appliances, and the view of Sacre-Couer from the balcony is beyond description. In fact, my wife says that her favorite thing about the entire vacation was the view from that balcony. I will be recommending you to my acquaintances who are traveling to Paris and if we ever are fortunate enough to make it there again, you can be sure we will book Basilique. Thank you again for helping our family create some amazing memories"

"Our stay at apartment Chappe was exactly what we wanted and expected. It was a very clean and efficient apartment that suited our needs as a young married couple looking to explore the city for the first time! Though we did not cook in the apartment the kitchen was perfectly equipped and had we stayed longer we would have utilized it. The location is in a very interesting part of Paris that we grew to enjoy - it is close to a very touristy area but within a few blocks you are in a part of Paris that many probably do not take the time to find. It was conveniently located a few blocks from a major metro line and had plenty of cafes and bakeries that we frequented daily! Jean-Noel was excellent in responding to any needs. I would highly recommend renting this apartment if you're looking for a unique stay on a budget while still having a desire for something very nice!"
