About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

If you like open horizons and open vistas, if you are searching for a cosy nest to rest in the centre of a busy city, a warm, peaceful and relaxing Home Away from Home, a small yet well equipped and affordable retreat, look no further! This is the place for you in Paris!

This 30 sq metres apartment is a two room apartment on the 6th and last floor of an 1800’s building with elevator. It has been completely renovated into a sitting room/bedroom, a dining room with corner kitchen and a bathroom. It's an ideal 'pied a terre' for 2 people, but it can accommodate up to 4. Ideal for a family with 2 children or 3 friends.

The sitting room/bedroom, is painted in a combination of a subtle bois de rose and a delicate magnolia colour, has a parquet wooden floor, a double bed and a sofa that turns into a comfortable queen size bed, both with very good quality mattress, flat screen television, DVD with a selection of classical films, books, a desk, a bookcase/wardrobe, selected indoor plants and air-conditioning. The balcony offers spectacular views of the Eiffel Tower and central Paris.

The dining room/kitchen painted in mauve/red and magnolia is complete with dining table and chairs that can accommodate up to 4 people, a refrigerator, washing machine, dish washer, oven, micro wave, toaster, coffee maker, a selection of indoor plants and a plant filled balcony with floor cushions that one can sit on and enjoy breakfast or a drink while enjoying the views over the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomph and central Paris.

The bathroom is small but also totally refurbished with shower.

The apartment is ideally positioned facing south towards the center of the city, so it has lots of natural light and sun all day long, something quite exceptional in Paris.

It is situated at the edge of the famous Montmartre area, with its many small streets and its little specialist shops, cafes and restaurants. A bit further up the hill and just 3 min away on foot, you will find the stairs that lead to Sacre Coeur, another famous Parisian landmark. Behind it, on Place de Tertre many artists gather to sell their works of art or to draw your portrait for a small fee, continuing the long tradition of artists, Montmartre is famous for.

This is how Montmartre is described in one of the guides.

'Everyone has their opinions about what to see first in Paris, the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame, blah blah. Forget it. Get off the plane and go to Montmartre --one of the neighborhoods of the 18th arrondissement, an 'outer' arrondissements of this little escargot known by the locals as 'Paname.' This arrondissement, the center of Bohemian romantic life, the setting for Buz Luhrmann's Moulin Rouge and of the Les fabuleux déstin d'Amélie Poulain (Amelie) has everything. Great food at good prices, French Chanson, art, tacky sketch artists, charm, vulgarity, shops, monuments, class, and if you don't want it -- you can find no class. The 18th is where you will find spectacular Sacre Coeur, the Musee Dali, winding hills, vulgar and cheap souvenirs to take home to people you don't like so much anyway, Moulin Rouge, Pigalle – everything that is great about Paris. Though it is no longer home to as many artists and bohemians as it once (they have moved to Montreuil a neighborhood to the East of Paris) and even though the bourgeoisie and their money has flooded in, there is little that can be done to erase the charm of this neighborhood... gentrified or not.'

Another important fact about this apartment, is that both metro and buses are right in front of it, which means that you will not have to walk far with your luggage when arriving and departing or when getting home after a long day out sightseeing, or even better you can get home for a few hours to rest and then go out again.

With Paris and the Eiffel Tower just at your feet, beautiful Montmartre just around and a fresh looking, cozy, home to come back to, this is by far one of the best places to be when in Paris!

Welcome and enjoy your stay!

About Galatea

About me. I am an avid world traveller myself. I am also a passionate gardener so you will be surrounded by flowers all year round. I love animals and I am a keen bird watcher. I write travel articles and make travel and wildlife photography.

Galatea purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Galatea chose Clignancourt

I fell immediately in love with this little nest of an apartment. Having this kind of view in Paris is quite exceptional as is having lots of light. Many apartments look out on courtyards that the sun never reaches. On the contrary this small but lovely apartment is virtually drenched in light, even if the day is grey. It just changes your mood!

What makes this apartment unique

Things that make this place unique are the views it offers over Paris, its position and quality of light and its proximity to transportation. What could be more invaluable than looking at the Eiffel Tower first thing in the morning and last thing at night from your window. How many people have this privilege in Paris?

Guestbook comments from the manager

We've so enjoyed our ten days here. The apt is delightfully equipped + the view is wonderful!

Metro stop just outside the door of the building. Bus 30 with direction Trocadero takes you directly to Trocadero, a vantage point for looking at and visiting the Eiffel Tower. Get off at the end and walk to Trocadero a few steps away from the bus terminal. Bus 67 (Terminal on Place Pigalle just outside the apartment) takes you directly to the Louvre, the Seine, Hotel de Ville and just a bridge away from Ile de la Cite and Notre Dame. Very convenient.

Location is great!

  • 4 of 5

Loved the location! Perfectly situated in the heart of Montmartre with a breathtaking view of the Eiffel Tower. The apartment was clean but the bed could have been more comfortable.

Cozy little apartment with a great view

  • 5 of 5

My mother and me had wonderful days in Gala's little, romantic, cute apartment. I only can agree with all the other reviews. The apartment has everything what you need for a nice holiday in Paris. The absolut highlight was the view to the Eiffel Tower. We sat every evening on the balcony with a glass of wine and enjoyed to sit over the roofs of Paris with the Eiffel Tower in fanzy lights. Communication with Gala was really good and uncomplicated. Everything went well during our arrival and departure. The area of the apartment couldn't be better. Bus, Metro, walking around ist very easy. Nice bars, restaurants, little shops are near and a supermarket is accross the street. We definitely would come back! Thank you again Gala!

I can highly recommend this cute, cozy flat for anyone who is searching for a place to call "home" while visiting Paris.

Galatea was extremely responsive - from our initial request to book, to ensuring someone was available to meet us upon our arrival. We never had a moment of concern nor were any questions left unanswered. We received extremely detailed info regarding directions, and specific info about appliances, etc were readily available in the desk at the flat.

We had absolutely no issues with any part of our stay - as the emailed info and documents in the flat provided step by step instructions for us.

And, it was a treat to step out on the balcony off he kitchen to watch Place Pigalle light up at night and see the Eiffel Tower put on her hourly sparkling light show.

With a cafe, market, boulangerie and pharmacy within the circle and within steps of this awesome flat...all of our basic needs were met and we could concentrate on venturing out to enjoy other areas.

Metro and bus stops are within feet of this awesome little place!

After traveling for days between Prague, Reims, Chartres and Versailles, my travel companion and I both agreed that Galatea's flat was the perfect place to call "home".

The wireless internet was great (and fast) which was a HUGE help because I had to buckle down and handle some serious deadline-driven work.

The washer was great and we were able to pack lighter because we knew we could launder items at the flat.

The coffee maker was easy to use - we bought additional coffee and left it for future guests.

The flat had every amenity we could have hoped for.

And, the neighbors? Extremely friendly and helpful. We were actually met by a neighbor - who provided the key - he spent a good fifteen minutes going over appliances, cable, internet, etc. And he told us to feel free to reach out to him if we had any issues.

I couldn't have asked for a better experience! When we visit again, I hope to book this same flat!

Wonderful views

  • 5 of 5

We only left one day ago and I already miss Paris. This apartment was wonderful. This was our first time to use VRBO and we were not disappointed. Galatea gave us very useful information and the apartment was fully equipped. We stayed for 6 nights and thoroughly enjoyed the neighborhood. One of the neighbors stopped by our first night to make sure we didn't have any questions - very nice. Even though you are on a busy street, the windows have great sound proofing and we slept well in the bed. We also appreciated the metro stop right across the street. Watching the Eiffel tower from the kitchen/dining room was a favorite activity in the evening with a bottle of wine. We highly recommend this apartment.

I miss it already

  • 5 of 5

Loved this apartment, we stayed for 8 nights. It has a very homely and comfortable feel to it. Directly opposite Pigalle Metro station, it is easy to get around. The neighbourhood is colourful and vibrant, close to the Moulin Rouge and Sacré-Cœur.

One of the best things about it was to sit and watch the street below and the view over the rooftops of Paris. There’s plenty of food and wine places around, so you won’t go hungry or thirsty. If you stay here make sure you walk up and down every street in Montmartre, it is quite lovely.

The apartment had just about everything we needed, the only thing to note is that the fridge does not have a freezer in it. There is a lift that goes from ground to the top floor, so no stairs at all unless you want to.

The neighbour who greeted us was very friendly and helpful as were everyone we met in the building. The instructions on arrival details and what to do locally were very helpful.

I really miss already not coming home to this apartment, I would love to return again someday.
