Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, 6 people Stylish, bright and Quiet with all you need

This beautiful place that can sleep 6 people plus there is a baby bed. We equiped it like the way we want to travel ourselves to make your life easier: 2 french cellphones with free communication so that your group can split and communicate easily (free of charge), hair iron, towel dryer, nespresso machine for great expresso, baby accessories, baby carrier backpack etc.

It is located right on 2 subway lines and 5 buses lines to visit all monuments with no trouble (I will provide itinerary guide).

Recently renovated by an architect, it kept its classic touch as it has parquet floors, molded ceilings but has modernity thanks to the designers furniture (Philippe Starck, P. Urquiola, etc...), antics and authentic classic advertising from the 1930’s (you will love them !!). There is no doubt you will feel at home. While being in a lively area, this 5th floor condo (with a elevator) is incredibly quiet as it opens on 2 courtyards on both sides. It proposes a master bedroom with a queen size bed and a dressing, another bedroom that can be set up with a queen size bed size or 2 twin’s beds and, an extra sleeping in the living room with a sofa that can sleep very comfortably 2 people (queen size). One baby bed is also available if needed. The kitchen is well equipped with modern appliances to cook fantastic French dinner

few details

Neighbourhood: Our appartment is located in the 9th, the real Paris, in the 'trendy' SOPI - South Pigalle that the NY times describes as ' “There is no better place to rent an apartment and to pretend, even for a brief time, to live in Paris.”

Walkable distance to Montmartre, Moulin Rouge, Place des Abbesses, the bar staged in the movie Amelie, and all the shopping area of the Grand Magasins/Opera, and the garden of the museum of the vie romantique! Historically, this neighbourhood, famous in 19th Century literature, was called the 'New Athens' as most of the intellectuals of the era were living there at the time: Hugo, Chopin, Sand,Gauguin etc… while less wealthy artists were living in Montmartre. This unique intellectual energy and the mosaic of people living here, makes it one of the neighbourhoods valued by the Parisians to live. It has been celebrated by the New York Times as the 'real Paris’ off the standard tourist track. Jean Paul Gaultier and several movie stars are living a few houses away and can be seen in the street. This neighbourhood is a unique one, which explains the limited number of apartments that are available. Today, many young, talented fashion designers have located in this neighbourhood and are side by side with authentic food store and the numerous guitar shops. The famous 'rue des Martyrs' is 5mn away proposing one of the best and authentic choices in term of food shopping and real Parisian fooding (NY times describes it as 'the last real street in Paris.”).

Transportation: Very well located to discover Paris, it is connected to most of the key neighbourhoods by 2 subway lines that covers Paris from North to South (line 12) and east /west (line 2) and 5 buses (30/54/67/74/montmartrobus) will take you directly to the Champs Elysees, the Louvre, the top of Montmartre, the left bank etc..

Adjacent to the building, you will find a grocery store open every day until late (very unique in Paris) andstores with very nice owners. Our building host as well a tiny standing comedy theatre that has some English speaking shows in the summer time (no noise for you as it is on the street side). It is located on a quiet courtyard just off the animated ‘rue Jean Baptiste Pigalle and the rue des martyrs

About Diane J.

We are an Franco/American family- Diane is Parisian and my husband is American. We have been traveling a lot, lived in the 2 countries. One of our source of joy is to share our best times and addresses of our trip. Paris is a very special place for us. If you need any tips for family travel in Paris, let us know.

Diane J. purchased this condo in 2000

Why Diane J. chose Paris Arr. 9 (Opera)

South Pigalle is the real and "hip" Paris: fun, classic, intellectual and in the center of everything. Best food scene (in competition with North Marais), the new york times, Vogues, etc... has now discovered the neighborhood which increase the number of designers and good restaurants here... but I am an "early adopter". I fell in love with it when I arrive to study in paris... in 1990.... and I am still in love with it.

As the NY times describe it:

“There is no better place to rent an apartment and to pretend, even for a brief time, to live in Paris.” “FOR me, the Rue des martyrs is the last real street in Paris.”

What makes this condo unique

The quietness of our place in a lively neighborhood. the style of the place with unique piece of furniture from our french family, unique piece of arts from the 1930's and the fact you can do everything walking or enjoy the fantastic subway and bus connection that are right there.

You will enjoy all the details to make your life easy: 2 local cellphones to use during your trip, beauty accessories such hair iron, adaptors, tooth brush charger, baby gears if needed etc...

Highly recommend it!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely enjoyed the apartment! The welcome packet is a must read. It is full of great information. Lilly was there to welcome us (thanks for your patience- our arrival took longer than expected) and walked us through the basics. The apartment was perfect for my family of 4. We traveled there with a 1yr and 6yr old. Thanks again!

Great place to stay in Paris and feel like a Parisian!

  • 5 of 5

Our two families stayed comfortably in this apt. for a week on vacation. What a wonderful way to get the experience of living in Paris! The grocery store is just a few steps away from the entrance of the apt. building and the metro stop is also very close by. While it is located in an area near to some of the seedier establishments of Paris, it is in a neighborhood which is very safe and family friendly. We walked to the metro station and toured the area by foot several evenings. We had two children with us, ages 9 and 11, and they enjoyed the area, as well. Lily was great to meet us upon our arrival and showed us how to operate all of the appliances and explained all of the features of the apt. She was so warm and personable and we felt at home immediately. Diane's excellent instructions for how to get to the apt. and descriptions of all of the local shopping and eating places were wonderful. We used the two cellphones while in Paris to keep in touch with the other family staying with us and was a wonderful added touch. The wifi worked well when we used it and all appliances worked great! We had a wonderful stay and would stay here again if we ever visit Paris again. The only negative is that the apt. is on the 4th floor and requires using a set of very old and worn spiral stairs. This is really not an issue if you are able-bodied, and there is an elevator, but it is extremely small and mostly useful for luggage and small children. While some may view this as a negative, we were happy to walk the stairs as it meant we could eat more ice cream at a local shop. :) The decor is beautiful and having the windows open for fresh air was very comfortable and kept the apt. cool. We even loved the fans used for air circulation so much that we ordered one online while we were there to be shipped to our home. It's a great little momento to remind us of our Paris vacation. The attention to detail in this rental is excellent and Diane does everything to make your experience perfect! We felt like we got a real experience of what it is like to live in the city of Paris rather than being tourists. Thank you for such a great time! We won't say au revoir, but rather a la prochaine.

Amazing Apartment in Pigalle

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the most wonderful stay in this lovely, stylish, well-appointed apartment. Diane has done a beautiful job making this a true home away from home experience for her guests. Her hospitality and generosity went beyond our expectations. Her welcome guide and list of area restaurants/travel options/sights/events was so helpful. Thank you, Diane, for helping us make the memories of a lifetime in your beautiful place! Fantastique!
