About the property

Apartment, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Located in an unspoiled corner of Montmartre, our 8th floor apartment has unparallel views over the rooftops of Paris and the Sacré Coeur Basilica. Situated in a charming 1920s stone Art Deco building the studio is accessible by elevator. The building maintains its charm with its original birdcage elevator, stained glass and art deco motifs.

Being on the 8th floor, the studio has a brightness and luminosity enhanced by 3 sets of windows. The studio is made up of a main living area, a separate, fully-equipped kitchen, and a separate bathroom. The apartment is tastefully and comfortably decorated and accommodates with ease 2 adults (30m2). It is cool in the Summer with 3 sets of windows and good air flow, and warm in the Winter with central heating.

It is in close proximity to some of the sights of Montmartre; the Sacre Coeur, Place des Tertres, Montmartre vineyard, the Clignancourt flea market, the staircases of Montmartre, and several street markets. The area with its small cobbled streets that wind up the hill has been adopted as home by artists and celebrities past and present. There are many good restaurants and bars. You're close enough to Sacré Coeur to hear its bells, but not close enough as to be inundated by its crowds. It is the perfect place to read, rest, and relax after having experienced the excitement that Paris has to offer.

The studio has easy access to 3 métro stations, several major bus routes and the Vélib bicycle rental system.

About The Owner

My spouse and I own this apartment; we live in the US and spend five to six months per year in Paris. We hope that visitors who stay at our studio come to enjoy Paris as much as we do.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2006

Why The Owner chose Grandes-Carrières

After having lived in Paris for 10 years, we came to know and love this corner of Paris very well. For us it is more than a vacation home; it is a second home. When we come to Paris we really do feel at home and very much part of a neighborhood. Between us, we do a lot of writing and this was one of the things that inspired us to locate in this area. We chose the place as a quiet, romantic retreat in fabled Montmartre, giving us easy access to the City, while also giving us the option of staying home to read and write. When we were originally looking to buy an apartment in Paris we spent several months looking. When we entered our apartment for the first time we knew straightaway that this was the one.

What makes this apartment unique

We return to Paris several times a year and between the two of us we do a lot of writing. And when in Paris, Montmartre IS OUR HOME. This is something that we were looking for in an apartment - a retreat. A place to enjoy everything that Paris has to offer but also a place to come back to and relax, write and reflect. We invite our guests to come back, because as you get to know the neighborhood, the neighborhood becomes YOURS. You find YOUR baker, YOUR cheese shop, YOUR wine merchant. And they DO remember you, the more you visit them. You feel like a real local, when you walk into YOUR neighborhood café and the waiter welcomes you as a 'regular,' and brings 'your usual.'

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our Paris adventure was a huge success! Thank you for the use of your apartment. It was perfect for us and it is truly a room with a view. We had perfect Summer weather and our stay including watching the full moon rise over the Sacre Coeur each night. That was a bonus. We loved being part of the Montmartre neighborhood.

A wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of living in this lovely apartment for 3 months. The apartment's location is ideal for longer stays as it benefits from of being in a residential area (local shops, kids playing, quiet, local parks) as well as easy access to all the amenities a visitor is interested in. The apartment is well designed and feels larger than it is. The separate kitchen, the hallway, wonderful windows and space for writing, reading and sleeping all contribute to a wonderful living space without any sense of being cramped. People in the building were pleasant and I loved the traditional elevator. Access to shops, transit and restaurants are within blocks with the dilemma being which one to choose. The owners were delightful to work with and responded immediately to the few queries I had. I look forward to staying here again.

Convenient, Quiet, and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this lovely apartment for 6 weeks in 2015 and began to feel very at home in the neighborhood. There's a grocery store, a bakery, a laundry, and a park nearby. Don't miss the most popular German pub in Paris in the next block! I was traveling alone for some of this time and always felt very safe. The info the owners send in advance is wonderful and I followed much of their advice with great success. Even during a few days of unusually high temps, this top floor apartment has a cross-breeze that is delightful. I had always wanted the experience of being a resident rather than a tourist and this location made that possible.

The Perfect Way To Experience Paris

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to experience Paris in as non-commercial a way as we could. Arriving to the apartment from Gare du Nord via the Metro was super easy. We were previously provided with a booklet filled with useful information that helped tremendously. The apartment was clean, cozy and conveniently located with lots of shops, restaurants and Metro stations in close proximity. Very shortly after arriving, we were exploring Paris as Parisians. We dined a few times at the local restaurants, but saved some money by having a few meals at the apartment as well. All in all, an excellent getaway that we'll be doing again soon!

Wonderful Neighborhood Beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this neighborhood. The people were friendly and very helpful. The apartment was just perfect for our needs. Very clean and comfortable. Slept better than at home. The kitchen was great to prepare meals in if needed. Transportation was close and accessible. It seemed that we could walk to the markets, our only regret is that we should have planned a longer stay. We would go back and stay again in this apartment, it was perfect.

Beautiful View

  • 5 of 5

This was an awesome Paris Apartment experience. Very Clean and the owners are so helpful. The apartment is located close to bus and Metro stops that take you to all the sites. And the apartment is a great place to come home to after a busy day.

Real Paris

  • 5 of 5

We loved this quaint and comfortable apartment. It had everything we needed to make our stay there delightful. The Montmartre area is walkable and vibrant - but the apartment is on a quiet, residential street just minutes from the action. It is convenient to two Metro stations, making all of Paris accessible as well. The owners provided information on everything we needed to know about the area including the location of markets, ATM's, restaurants and the local post office and laundry. We definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a "real" Paris experience - so much better than a mere hotel!
