The grand lepic apartment which suits 8 adults and up to 10 people if including children is situated in a classical hausmannian residence which dates back to 1892. The building was once the residence of the dancers and performers of the world famous moulin rouge-which is located just down the street at place blanche.
This grand duplex, situated on 2 floors, measures a stunning 160m2 (1722 ft2). It has 4 bedrooms, 3 spacious full bath & shower rooms and one separate wc. 4 separate apartments were combined and redesigned with the idea of creating a large, bright & beautiful duplex.
A large balcony that runs the length of the apartment means you can soak up the ambiance of montmartre-one of the most original neighbourhoods of paris. Enjoy your morning coffee and croissant from one of the many fabulous local boulangeries as you watch the passersby shopping at the various market vendors on the street or watch the sunset as you enjoy your glass of wine.
The apartment combines both modern comfort and a classic french style.
On the first floor there are two bedrooms-the master bedroom and a child's room.
The master bedroom contains a queen-size bed, a large screen tv and a spacious walk-in closet. We have an extra single fold out bed in this bedroom.
The second bedroom on 1st floor is a charming child's room with a custom-built fortified castle-like bed fit for any little prince or princess. The bedroom also has a folding bed that transforms into an additional single bed for another child or even an adult.
Up one level there are 2 additional bedrooms-one with a queen-size futon bed and the other bedroom with a double-size brass bed that would be appealing to any weary traveler. This adjustable bed is perfect for two people with different sleeping habits since you can lift the mattress up at the head or foot of the bed while your partner'a side remains flat if they so desire. Both bedrooms also have their own tvs.
Three of the four bedrooms are courtyard facing. Only the bedroom containing the brass bed faces the street, but you won't have to worry about street noise since there are noise-blocking double-glazed windows throughout the entire apartment.
In total the apartment sleeps up to 10 people (maximum of 7-8 adults).
The luxurious residence has two full bathroom/shower-rooms and one shower room with a separate wc. On the main floor, one of the shower rooms offers both a normal shower or a true spa experience with the whirlpool shower located next to the master bedroom . A separate wc is located just next door to this shower room.
On the other side of the apartment on the same floor, you have a newly renovated full bathroom with a whirlpool tub and shower- ideal after a long day of sight-seing.
On the second floor you will find the last shower room, which is both spacious & modern.
The large foodie-friendly kitchen, located on the main floor off the entry hall, is fully equipped and spacious enough to enjoy a quick breakfast.
The main living area combines three living spaces-the dining room, a parlor & the main living room.
The dining room table can seat 8-10 people and serves as a perfect display for any festive feast or casual dinner. The apartment comes equipped with crystal glassware and porcelain plates from a renowned porcelain maker. And of course, casual dining ware is also provided.
Enjoy reading in the elegant parlor over a cup of tea or coffee.
Plenty of seating space is available in the living room where you can watch cable tv (which provides a substantial list of multi-language channels), on a large screen or play on the nintendo wii-w have provided a few games.
Supporters of the chateau de versailles and lovers of the furnishings of the 18th and 19th century, the owner of the apartment chose several pieces of furniture that stand out in this space as a testament to his admiration-including a louis xvi secretaire, a copy of furniture from the wallace collection in london and a louis xv dresser with ravishing ornate marquetry.
With all these classic touches the apartment remains inviting, calm, and discreet. Bright colors, beautiful artwork and original pieces of furniture both modern and classical, come together harmoniously.
The library on the upper level can serve as an office should you need to work during your stay in paris or can also serve as a second living room where there is a sofa and a fold our single bed + cable tv.
The laundry room is located next to the kitchen on the first floor and contains a washer and separate dryer. This room also has a large wall-mounted drying rack if you like to air dry any of your clothes.
