Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible Bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 4)
Tucked away on a quiet street in the village of Montmartre in the 18th Arrondissement of Paris, this charming one-bedroom apartment makes the perfect home base for budget-conscious couples or families on a Parisian holiday.
The apartment is located in lovely Parisian 19th century residential building. Walk less than 15 minutes to the Sacre Coeur basilica, and along the way enjoy cafes, restaurants and boutiques which abound in this typically Parisian neighborhood, which is complete with a neighborhood park. Windows in the living room and bedroom open from this flat onto the building’s inner courtyard, eliminating the distraction of street noises.
LIVING AREA: The living area features a new, high-quality double sofa bed designed for daily use, and suitable for up to two adults. The wall-to-wall bookcase opposite the sofa holds a TV, DVD player plenty of books and DVDs to browse through. The TV has cable television with a few international news channels in English. The storage unit in the bookcase also provides additional space for those sleeping in the living to store their belongings. The dining table seats four comfortably, and there is a desk opposite the kitchen for guests who need to work while in Paris.
MASTER BEDROOM: The bedroom is spacious and furnished with a king-sized bed (160cm). A large armoire provides plenty of space to store your belongings, and an original decorative fireplace adds Parisian charm to the room.
DINING AREA: The table can be expanded on both sides to give plenty of room to happy diners.
KITCHEN: The open kitchen includes a refrigerator with freezer compartment, two burner electric stove, clothes washer, and a combination oven/microwave. Clothing can be dried on an air drying rack. The apartment also has an iron, ironing board, hair dryer and alarm clock.
BATHROOM: Off of the living room area is a small-yet-functional with shower, toilet and sink with a mirror. It's a truly Parisian experience to learn how to make do with small spaces. The apartment shower has hot water on demand and good water pressure.
FAMILIES: Walk two minutes to reach the neighborhood park at Square Carpeaux. We will happily provide a baby travel crib and/or lightweight stroller for you as well, upon request.
STAY CONNECTED: The apartment has WIFI internet and a landline telephone with free international calling to many countries (US & Canada included - ask for other countries). The main living room TV has cable and access to some English-language news stations.
TRANSPORTATION: A quick walk also leads you to two different metro stops - Guy Moquet (Line 13) or Lamarck Caulaincourt (Line 12). Two handy bus lines (95, 81) will also help you explore Paris easily.
SHOPPING: For foodies, this is a perfect in which to go shopping “à la française.” Visiting the cheese shop, the butcher and the green grocer is French tradition! But don't worry - you'll find plenty of modern supermarkets, too, such as Carrefour and Franprix. The apartment’s location is within a short distance of rue Damremont’s boutiques, bakeries, butcher, fish market, chocolate shop and wine cave. It's also a quick walk to Avenue de St. Ouen’s daily outdoor food market. Rue Ordener offers a twice-per-week market just a 2-minute walk from the apartment, and the lovely rue de Poteau (10-minute walk) also offers a daily market street. Whether you choose to prepare your meals yourself or to partake of the many restaurant offerings, you can be sure to find your heart’s desire in this neighborhood.

The apartment was clean and comfortable. The owner was excellent communicating and responding all
We had a great stay at rue Carpeaux. The property was just as described in the listing, clean and comfortable.
Great small apartment in a nice location
We loved our stay at the apartment. Paula was speedy, efficient and helpful with her communications. The apartment is clean, nicely decorated, comfortable and has everything we needed for a week's stay in Paris. The space is cozy but not confining. We were three - two mature adults and our 20 year old son. The space was perfect for us but might be challenging for more than 3 adults. The neighborhood is close to the metro (we easily walked to three different stations), bus, shops, restaurant and sights (Montmartre museums & Sacre Coeur etc.) We felt very safe. Directions to the apartment and the meet up were perfect - keys easy to use, first floor location convenient. While there was some normal apartment building noise, we had very peaceful nights - the neighbors all seemed very quiet. I would definitely return to this apartment and would recommend it to friends & relatives.
very good but very small bathroom hardly enough room to turn round
Property was clean well prepared and we were greeted by a lady who explained every thing we asked, she also has a very good knowledge of the transport systems and how to explore Paris. Two things that stood out were the very small shower cubicle which I had read about but it seemed smaller than I imagined also the freezer compartment was unusable because it was full of ice, badly needs to be defrosted. The beds were comfortable and I had a good nights sleep every night , the (click clack) convertible bed was just he same my granddaughter stated just as good as home. Would I stay there again certainly, very close to Guy Moquet Metro about five minute walk, plenty of taxis close to this station.
Great place in a great location
The apartment is a decent size, clean, and has comfortable furniture including a large bed. The bathroom/shower is a little small but functional. The only improvement I would make would be to add some plates, as there were only bowls and cups.
The location is perfect, right next the 95 bus stop and close to the 12 or 13 metro, all which take you right downtown in 15 minutes. The local area has great restaurants, wine shops, and cheese shop. It’s away from the tourist areas and you get a much more local feel.
We would definitely stay there again!
Great neighborhood! Felt safe and like a resident instead of a tourist.
Tiny shower stall but manageable - big people could struggle with it. Apt. was outfitted nicely. Great location - easy walk to metro, great bistros and grocery store. Pretty quiet - a few sounds from neighbors - not much from outside. Hearing kids enjoying their recess was nice. More than 2 adults would be a little crowded. Handy info book helped us orient ourselves. Paula was very helpful.
So Easy to Walk to EVERYWHERE!!!
First of all, I have to say that Paula gets A+ in terms of communication. Throughout all the months, any question, big or small, she answered with amazing speed!!!
The apartment is cute; very secure. It is a little noisy with the neighbours (hardwood floors) but you'll be exhausted after walking all over Paris.
Everything you could ever want (if the apt doesn't have it, you don't need it) is in the apartment. Paula left us a welcoming box of chocolates and a card; a VERY nice touch. She went through everything with us and was available any time to answer any questions.
I wasn't crazy about the white bed coverings but that's a personal preference. There are lots of towels, etc.
I loved the sound of the kids in the daycare a couple of doors away.
Now, the bathroom. It's tiny. We knew that going in. Even though we knew how tiny the shower was, it took some balancing for sure and is making for some good banter when telling people about it.
I would recommend this place to anyone.
This apartment is in a quiet building in central Paris, allowing you to visit all the famous sites but return home to a 'real' neighborhood and enjoy living like a Parisian during your stay.
