Overview

About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

This unique apartment (6 guests, 2 bedrooms, 75 m2) is located on the 1st floor (US standard no elevator) in a Montmartre 19th century building. It is located “rue d’Orchampt”, one of the highest rated streets in Montmartre. “Rue d’Orchampt” is a small and quiet street featuring many romantic artists studios. Close by lies the famous place du bateau Lavoir. This is where many famous artists lived, PICASSO, MODIGLIANI, Albert CAMUS, Max JACOB.

The owner has completely redesigned the apartment. The unit is facing another apt of 50 m2, listing #222895 which may be rented together for parties up to 12 guests. Apartments may communicate at will.

The architect played with the former apartment decoration: he selected some of the valuable antique wooden furniture, re-used some stained-glass doors, and kept the “tapisserie” on some of the living room walls as well as the full white marble bathroom. Alternatively he created a contrast by designing a modern kitchen with bright colors which links the living room, one of the bedroom and the bathroom.

• Entering the apartment, the first glimpse is the view over Paris through the large left window. The light sprinkles over the stained-glass doors of the bedroom which is on the right.

• The bedroom offers a queen size bed. It is equipped with large bookshelves. The bedroom window has a view over the calm rue d’Orchamps (semi pedestrian). When stained glass doors are slid open, light comes from both sides of the bed.

• After entrance, one steps in the exceptionally large living room. It has 3 tall windows. It is furnished with a large antique wooden table, and a sofa corner with armchairs and extra chairs (on photos the sofa has not been delivered yet). The sofa will be a comfortable convertible sofa (may sleep to adults for short stay).

• The kitchen is a separate room, fully equipped including dishwasher and washer drier. It is brand new and colorful modern designs. One walks through the kitchen from the living room to reach the master bedroom and the bathroom.

• The master bedroom offers a queen size bed. It has 2 windows with view over Paris. It is equipped with a wooden (& valuable) wardrobe close to the bathroom. Toilets are inside the bathroom.

• The original white marble of the bathroom and the faucets were kept. The look is art déco type. It is equipped with a bath with shower, and has a high window.

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. More over, 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.

SACRE COEUR church is 3 minute walking distance. Les abbesses, the trendy part of Montmartre is just down the square: many restaurants, shops and nice café terraces. The ABBESSES SUBWAY station is 2 minute walk. PIGALLES & BLANCHE stations are only 3 minute away. 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 & restful area to be appreciated after a whole day shopping and walking through museums...

Last point, we are staying 1 block away. We are here if you need help

Terrific Location in Montmartre

  • 4 of 5

Very Nice , very "French" apartment on the hill in Montmartre. Very near shops and restaurants and very near to the Moulin Gallette of the famous painting. The views were spectacular and the apartment was spacious for 4 people. It is a beautiful area with lots of local flavor on the other side of the hill, however there is TONS of tourist traffic around the church and in the place du Tertre. This apartment requires a bit of stamina if you are sight-seeing. The Metro stops are either at the bottom of the hill or at Abbesses it is a long stair climb in addition to the walk up the hill. This apartment has frequent tourist group stops right in front of the apartment, so the windows have to remain closed because of the noise. There is also a playground on the opposite side of the apartment in the courtyard. This can be noisy as well during daylight hours. There was also construction going on in the building that we were not notified of. So while the management company stresses how you should have some consideration and be quiet for the neighbors, the surrounding neighborhood is certainly not quiet. Its a great place overall, but be prepared for early mornings and late nights.

Owner's Response: Hi Adam, Thanks you for your review . This apt is indeed very French and our guest appreciate its view over paris and the square and its charm a lot. As far as the noise of the playground, it should be mentioned that the play ground is a square that opens at 10 am and closes at 7 pm in winter, 8 pm in summer. If the windows are closed the sound is barely audible. It is audible in summer. We never had complaints. The 3 days works happened to be repainting the windows from outside. Unfortunately in Paris it is impossible to plan when the works will exactly start. We have offered a compensation for this inconvenience and one can be sure it will not happen in the next 10 years. Hope to host you again in Paris. Sincerely, Jean

Amazing Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We rented this apartment and another apartment in the same building for a family trip. We loved this apartment. There is a great open living room/dining room area for hanging out and the kitchen is small but pretty large for a city apartment. There is a washer and dryer as well which we used to keep our bags small. The neighborhood is great. You really get the living in Paris experience in this apartment. There is a good amount of natural light and great views of Paris from the apartment. Shops and restaurants are very close and its about a 10 minute walk up to Sacre Couer. The apartment is short uphill walk from the subway, but we didn't mind it too much since we were walking all day. I would recommend this apartment to anyone!

Lovely location and stay.

  • 4 of 5

Our stay in Montmartre:

The apartment was lovely - sunny, spacious, with most all the amenities that you would have at home. The beds were very comfortable and it was so nice to have a place to lay out the plans for the day to come at the dining room table and a place to lay out the cheese, baguette, and wine in the living room to plan out the evening while relaxing on the couch or numerous armchairs. Plenty of shopping and restaurants near by and the neighborhood is interesting and safe. It would be nice if there were some basic things in the kitchen like salt, pepper and oil. The only downside was that the toilet was not very strong and took a long time to fill which could be problematic for multiple people staying. Check in was easy enough and the communication from the staff was great.

Great Stay

We loved our first 4 days in Paris at the Lepic apartment. It was in a great neighborhood (Montmartre) within walking distance to many good restaurants and shopping area's. It was clean, spacious and comfortable for the 4 of us and had beautiful views.

Wonderful stay in Paris

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at the Lepic apartment.

It's spacious, bright, and has spectacular views of Montmartre and Paris.

If you want to live like a Parisian in a real Parisian neighborhood then you have to stay here. The apt is only a couple of blocks away from Montmartre's main street, which is full of cafes and cute boutiques. It's also very close to the Abesses metro.

It was the first time we stayed in Montmartre and we'll definitely stay here again.

We truly enjoyed the experience of staying at the apt and living in Montmartre.

The apt was impeccably clean, the beds very comfortable and plenty of towels for everybody.

Thanks for letting us stay at the apt.

Maria

Great rate / good location

  • 2 of 5

Overall an adequate experience. The flat is located in a perfect location next to Metro Station Abbessee and accessible to all of Paris. It is located near a very trendy part of town with plenty of restaurants and grocery stores. The building is older and typical French style. The flat itself is very French with an IKEA kitchen that has a washer / dryer toaster coffee machine stove fridge and lots of plates and dishwear. The bedrooms are nice but the beds are somewhat older and the mattress is warped and difficult to sleep well on. The flat is near a school so afternoon naps with the sound of loud children is difficult and the park is often used at night by youth to play music which woke us up in the middle of the night each night. Windows are older so closing them does very little. Bathroom is traditional French the toilet is located in a very odd angle and doesn't flush well at all often having to flush three of four times to clear it. The shower is by hand and the window is right there so don't expect any privacy from the other flats. The floors were disgustingly dirty often the socks and feet black from walking around. We are charged a cleaning fee but there is dust everywhere including the lights in the kitchen and counters... I cleaned better leaving and it was dirty coming into it. Not enough pillows for both beds and no extras provides. Arrival was fine but confusing... Not clear you had to go to another location to get the keys. Wouldn't stay here again despite the location.

Owner's Response: Hi Cliff, Thank you for your review. The apartment is indeed in a great location and our guests generally like it very much as one can see in the other reviews. The view over Paris and the square is great. There are often kids playing in the square. We do respect your feelings. Other guests never felt bothered, the noise level is actually limited as the square is at a largely lower level and not directly against the building. Kids are coming mainly in afternoon, the square closes at 7pm. We understand the cleaning was not perfect when you arrived. We are definitely sorry about this. We would have sent a cleaning lady right away if you had called us. The company which does the cleaning is generally very reliable. Unfortunately it happens that a cleaning lady is on holiday and was replaced by a less skilled person. We will do a commercial gesture to compensate this issue and inform our cleaning supplier so that he traces back the cleaner and trains him again. Sincerely, Jnoel
