Overview

About the property

Bedrooms 2, Bathrooms 1, Sleeps 5

The apartment is on a street on a hill which ends in a set of stairs going up to the Moulin de la Galette (one of the remaining historic windmills). Close by are Rue Lepic and Rue des Abbesses, known for their high quality food stores and restaurants. The Paris fabric district, the Marche Saint Pierre, is at the foot of the Sacre Coeur Cathedral, just a few minutes walk away.

The Montmartre district, famous for its place in the history of Impressionism and modern art, is still full of galleries and street artists. Picasso's studio, the Bateau Lavoir, is just around the corner. Some of Renoir's best known paintings were done just up the street and Toulouse-Lautrec got much of the inspiration for his most famous work from the Moulin Rouge, just down the hill.

The apartment extends the full width of the building, so its three large front windows overlook the small street and the back windows (downstairs bedroom and bathroom) are overlooking the interior courtyard. It is remarkably quiet since it is at the top of the building and the small street has little or no traffic.

The living room is a large, open-plan living room/dining room/kitchen with open access to a large loft on the upper level. The furnishings are a mixture of comfortable contemporary with some lovely antiques and original art. There is a large leather sofa, a Moroccan tiled coffee table, Persian carpet, and polished hardwood floors on the main level. The dining area has a table with four chairs and a cut glass art deco chandelier overhead. There is DSL with Wi-Fi in the apartment, VOIP Phone.... and no TV.

The downstairs also has one bedroom with a queen size bed and the modern bathroom with a walk-in shower, toilet, and basin.

The upstairs bedroom/study on the loft is carpeted and has a queen size bed, a low sloped ceiling, and several skylights as it is literally under the roof. It has a separate study area with desk and chair, storage closets/cupboards, and the clothes washer/dryer. There is also a single pull out mattress that can be used to sleep one person.

The kitchen has four cooking elements (3 gas and 1 electric), a conventional oven, refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, and the full compliment of appliances, dishes, and utensils for six. There is a separate freezer under the eves on the top floor level.

Great Place in Montmartre

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. Great location and convenient to many cafes, shops, grocery and eateries. Keep in mind that given the location in Montmartre, hills are just part of the experience and was not difficult for our active family of four to manage. That includes the stairs leading to the apartment. The apartment suited our needs very well and being able to hang out and have the option of eating dinner (baguettes, wine, cheese, fruit!) without having to go out is a nice option. Sleeping was not an issue, as the beds were comfortable especially after a long day of walking and site seeing. We have not lived in Paris, but it felt very Parisian and much better than a hotel. Getting to Sacre-Couer was just a five minute walk - making it a frequent place for us to walk around in the evenings after visiting all of the various destinations/attractions throughout Paris during the day. Several options for train or bus are nearby making it very easy to get around. The apartment is located on a dead-end street with very little car traffic or noise. But there are the occasional moped cycles picking up food deliveries from the four restaurants nearby. (All very god options for eating out, by the way.) The windows opened out for fresh air and sounds of the night life below. The noise level for us was manageable and part of the whole experience of living in Paris. In addition, you have an amazing view of the Dome of the Palace of Invalides. The stairs to the upstairs bedroom are a little tricky to navigate as previously noted, but it was not an issue for our two teen-agers. However, it could be difficult for younger kids to navigate the stairs, or taller adults given the ceiling height. The only reason we did not rate it 5 stars is because of some difficulty with the dishwasher, which was fixed by the owner/manager before we left, who was very helpful in resolving our issue.

Beautiful old-style apartment in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic experience in our week-long stay. We would most definitely go back to this place. The pros outweigh the cons by far.

PROS: We loved the charm and the warmth. The friendly woman who met us there to give us the keys and show us around the apartment was great and easy to contact with additional questions. The neighborhood was perfect with great restaurants, shopping, and Sacre Couer, etc. within walking distance. The building was quiet, private, and peaceful. The home phone had the added benefit that calls to the US were free.

CONS: There is no lift and it is three flights up (this didn't bother us at all, but it is something to be aware if you have a lot of luggage). The stairs going up are steep and not very safe for children and the upstairs bedroom has a ceiling so low that you have to hunch over a bit (again, it didn't bother us, but good to know). Our biggest complaint was that the lock can be quite difficult to unlock. It took us a few minutes to get inside the apartment (not the building) sometimes.

This is the place to be!

  • 5 of 5

We realized that we have made the correct decision as soon as we walked in. It was nicely decorated and had a comfortable ambiance. The apartment has plenty of space for a family and it helped us to enjoy our vacation with more freedom. The furnishings are comfortable and the kitchen is totally stocked. I highly recommend this apartment for anyone who is planning to stay in Montmartre.

Lovely Montmartre apartment!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my family of four. We wanted to stay somewhere that was both historic and beautiful, and this area was a great choice. The apartment is open, and the decor is eclectic and comfortable. To me, it felt very French; it was relaxed and had character. The kitchen was well equipped, and while we did dine out quite a bit, we ate breakfast at the table every day. We slept well, and the sky lights on the loft level helped cool the place. Booking and checking was easy, and the home was clean and tidy when we arrived.
