Overview

About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

This elegant 70m², 2 bedrooms apt is located on the second floor of a very nice brick and stone building. The old paved street is quiet, offers many flowered courtyards, and within a short distance one reaches the most central area of Montmartre “Rue des Abbesses” in a very safe and very familial environment.

The apartment was fully refurbished early 2011. It is of high quality, has 4 large windows with views on the private courtyards of the area, a traditional wooden floor and 3 nice traditional chimneys. Decoration is delicate. The apt has also a balcony with table and chairs to enjoy a drink and the sunshine. It offers a rare combination of advantages:

• A perfect location, lively but quiet : a few meters from the trendy Abbesses area, minutes away form the subway, close to the Sacré-Coeur.

• The apartment offers 2 bedrooms. It can be used for up to 6 guests. 2nd bedroom & living room can be linked.

• The overall quality of the apt is very high. Large windows bathe living room and bedrooms with light. The wooden floor gives a feeling of warmth. It is fully equipped.

The living room area has a nice view on the old haussmannian buildings and private gardens of the vicinity. It is bathed in light by 2 windows that open of the balcony. It offers a flat TV, a chimney, a dining area for 6, a lounge area by the windows and a comfortable convertible sofa bed for 2.

Both bedrooms are also bathed in light by windows and offers chimneys. The 1st bedroom offers a comfortable queen size bed and a piano for music lovers ! (note we cannot ensure the piano is in tune). The 2nd Bedroom offers a double bed.

The bathroom is equipped with bathtub with shower. Toilets are separate but inside the apartment.

The kitchen is fully equipped with microwave oven, refrigerator, stoves, dish washer, washer and dryer. A window gives view on the quiet private courtyard. It also offers a nicely designed dining area.

As a bonus, Phone calls to land lines in France, and to US, Canada and Australia are generally free. It is also true for more than 50 countries. Moreover, 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.

This location is a perfect base to visit Paris. It stays 15 minute by subway to most interesting Paris locations AND is a very charming and restful area to be appreciated after a whole day shopping and walking through museums.

Neighborhood :

• Montmartre is a village within Paris: it combines the atmosphere of an ancient village with trendy shops and fabulous restaurants. Many artists and movie stars live in the district.

• As you walk through Montmartre you will pass many winding and picturesque streets with fascinating houses, stairs and wonderful views over Paris. Look for the Montmartre Vineyard, walk to 'Place du Tertre' where artists will offer to draw your portrait and see Picasso’s house and the Salvador Dali museum. Visit the famous Sacré-Coeur Moorish-looking church.

• On the 'Rue des Abbesses' you will discover shops, cafes and clothing stores and in 'Rue Lepic' you will come across the market, wine shops - the cheese shop was rated n° 3 in France – bakeries and charcuteries. It’ll take a few days to select your preferred “café” !!! Walk down to the Moulin Rouge and experience the Paris nightlife.

• On the north side, close to the “Lamarck” metro station is the famous Rue du Poteau Market as well as quaint antique shops.

• The Champs-Elysees is only a ten-minute Metro ride, the Eiffel Tower, Le Marais, Les Halles, and Saint-Germain are all between 15- 20 minutes from Abbesses.

About InBP6

In Beau Paris is a Vacation Rental Agency operating in Paris for more than 10 years.

We manage close to 100 apartments in Paris, all of very good to luxury standard.

We take care of the advertising of apartments, the reservation process from payments to security deposit refund; and even the cleaning and the maintenance of the apartment.

We would be very happy to host you in one of our apartments that you will find on VRBO Listing #26870.

We do very little brand name advertisement. We focus on what matters: MAKING SURE OUR GUESTS ARE SATISFIED (check the reviews on any of our apts. Recent apts do not have reviews yet).

We believe it is the best way to develop our activities which have been growing steadily every year. You are welcome to try our service.

InBP6 purchased this apartment in 2001

Why InBP6 chose Grandes-Carrières

We selected this property because of its great location close to a vibrant area of Moulin Rouge and yet in a peaceful stone building in an old paved street and the elegancy of the apartment.

It is the main residence of the owner. He rents when going to his secondary residence. For a guest, renting a main residence is a warranty of high quality : it is always maintained at top level. Obvioulsy, the owner puts away personal belonging. There is more than enough space available for guests.

WE DO CARE ABOUT PROPERTIES WE MANAGE.

What makes this apartment unique

We know searching for an apartment can be a nightmare :

that is why, from beginning of your search to the end of your stay, you will have REAL PEOPLE INTERACTING WITH YOU, not automatic mailing or automatic booking.

WE ARE PROFESSIONALS.

We answer to each request and send a detailed quote & contract on each request. We believe the instant quote given on the site is not precise enough for a guest to book an apt.

We react fast, be it by mail (often in the hour, max 24h, we have evening shift), Immediatly by phone. Note we do not take booking on the phone nor discuss prices or availability, risk of mistake is too high. E-mail is much more secure & precise. We nevertheless are happy to answer specific questions.

During your stay, we are always available. We can advise you on how to use the apt. We run a night emergency line, for real emergencies :-). When problem arise, we do our best to solve them, quickly.

We want our guest to have the best memories of their stay. We have a high rate of returning guests : it seems they do.

A dream come true

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at the Germain apartment. We had 4 adults and one toddler. The rooms of the apartment were very large and the location was absolutely fabulous. We loved walking down to rue des Abbesses and the market street rue Lepic was very close and great for dinners. Plus the Italian restaurant across the street was fabulous.

It was my dream to stay in Paris and this was definitely a dream come true.

Check in a problem

  • 3 of 5

I was traveling with my 9 year old and we are very adept with public transportation. I did not find out about the check in routine until after I had paid. You have to pick up the keys in a Da Vinci Code fashion at a different location than the actual apartment. If you weren't traveling with any luggage to drag up and down the hills of Montmartre, this would not be a problem. They suggest a taxi to do this but why should I pay for a taxi when I am perfectly capable of using public transport for less than half the price?! I did have the option of hiring and paying someone to meet me at the apartment, but again...why should I spend money on something unnecessary? Part of the reason I use VRBO and airbnb is because I think having that personal touch from meeting the OWNER is nice and helpful. This is a rental agency, not the owner! And the property looks like it is not lived in but rented year round. It lacks those obvious personal touches of an actual owner.

And this is important for those traveling with children-this is Pigalle not Montmartre! The metro you will use requires you to pass by numerous shops that scream SEX TOYS, which my 9 year old inquired about. Thanks a lot. You can use Abbesses metro but the Pigalle stop is much closer. It would have been nice for the manager to say-hey with the check in policy and the location this may not be the best place for a 9 year old.

All this said, it is a nice apartment in a convenient location for ADULTS. The street out front was somewhat loud until pretty late, like 2 am, but the windows did a good job of blocking out noise. Unfortunately this meant shutting them which meant it could get stiflingly hot by morning. There was not a pot or pan that I would use, they were all BADLY scratched non-stick teflon pans. I washed every dish we used prior to using it because they were not clean, some had hardened particles on them and some were actually greasy. As long as you eat out and pre-wash dishes, the kitchen was fine. The bathroom was ok, the shower splattered water on the floor because it is only partially blocked by a glass panel. No hairdryer in apartment. The living area was pleasant and comfortable and kitchen had a nice eating area as well. Bedrooms were comfortable with good mattresses. I would stay here again without children and if the check in were more convenient.

Owner's Response: Dear Kristin, We do appreciate your comments and take them into account. It helps us improve our service. We are sorry the apt did not fully match your needs. Our guest generally do appreciate our check in process, we get very positive feedback : it makes possible check in / Out at any time of the day (early/late flights), the pick up location is near (200m) and it keeps the price of the rental lower. As you said we can offer a personal check in as an option. It is better to use the Abbesses subway station when travelling with a child. Let us point out is actually at the same distance as the other one. We have asked the cleaning team to do a deep clean of the apt and are sorry if some pans had not been cleaned thoroughly enough. Hopefully you found the general cleaning satisfactory. We will be happy to offer your to stay in an apartment in another location in your next visit and will be happy to offer a free personal check in. Sincerely Jnoel

Great area with super cafes and restaurants

  • 4 of 5

I loved the apartment and location. My wife, daughter and I stayed here very comfortably. Property management was very responsive, easy to deal with and the directions are detailed and very helpful. Neighborhood is wonderful but head top of the hill. Just a couple things to know in advance, these were not big issues just a little inconvenient and unanticipated. The inconvenience is walking up a hill to access and return the key to apartment, 2 flights of stairs to the apartment difficult to manage with heavy luggage and unanticapted was the amount of sex shops on Blvd de Clichy. Best option is if you can get the taxi to wait while you pick up key....ours would not or didn't understand. Stay off off Clichy unless going to specific spot. I do wish we had tried Moulin Rouge though. Montmaterie is out of the way of the many tourists in Paris, easy access to the Metro, people very friendly(except for anyone in the banks), neighborhood atmosphere fabulous and food as good or better than around tourist areas. Places I recommend are Le Relais Gascon restaurant, Place du Terte a great square with artists/cafes and walk the hills to find other intimate cafes/restaurants/squares. If we had the opportunity to return to Paris we would stay here again.

A great place in a great location

  • 5 of 5

I found the apartment to be exactly like the pictures. The bed was very comfortable, and had zero issues with anything. The manager was easy to contact, and he provided tons of information to you before you arrive, and there a several pages of notes in the apartment. The apartment was close to plenty of great restaurants, and a couple of block to the Metro. Overall great experience.

Great Apartment, but a few Problems

  • 3 of 5

This is my 3rd time in Paris and 2nd time in this area. The apartment is accurate to the photos and comfortable if you know the old style Parisien apartment you're buying. Very secure with all the codes to get in and a quote street in an active neighborhood. My only complaints have to do with cleaning and contact with the company. I never really received any check in from the people renting the apartment, even though we called on arrival and emailed. Also, there were ants throughout the apartment floors and counters on arrival. We killed them, along with cleaning some of the floors and counters that had crumbs. The apartment wasn't cleaned particularly well and at the end of the rent time, I found a swarm of ants under the kitchen sink with crumbs and dust showing it hadn't been cleaned. Manageable, but wasn't too happy about it.

Owner's Response: Hi Catarina, Thanks for your review and nice to know you found the apartment to be great, accurate to the photos, comfortable and very secure. Ants are alas rather common in springtime in Paris. Why didn’t you call us when you discovered them? We would have quickly sent the maintenance company to take care of them. We are sorry you didn’t find the apartment well cleaned. We forwarded your comments to the cleaning company manager and asked him to improve for our future guests. Thanks for your feedback, it is always helpful. Sincerely, Jean
