A cosy apartment perfect for a couple or three guests. Above a neighborhood bakery in the heart of Montmartre, just a few steps from the Sacre Coeur, it's well equipped, decorated with antiques, original photography & has lots of useful information.
This cozy studio apartment () is in a typical Montmartre building and is decorated with antiques and original photography. It has everything you need to make your stay comfortable, including: a new double bed and a single pull-out bed (also with quality mattress), equipped independent kitchen, bathroom with shower, linens, DVD/BlueRay player, TV with international cable channels, free wifi internet connection and unlimited free telephone calls to over 90 countries, including France, the US and Canada (landlines and cell numbers), all EU countries, Australia, South Africa, China and many more (landlines only). On a quiet street in the heart of Montmartre above a neighborhood bakery (fresh croissants, baguettes and pastries are just down the stairs), the apartment is only steps away from the Sacré Coeur and a short walk from Montmartre's many attractions. The neighborhood is replete with boutiques, galleries, cafes, restaurants, music night spots and theaters as well as all the shops, supermarkets, pharmacies and commerce that you may need. It is a short walk from several metro stations (Anvers, Chateau Rouge and Les Abbesses) as well as bus lines to get you anywhere in Paris with ease. The apartment is close to the Gare du Nord, Gare de l'Est and Saint Lazare train stations and is easily accessible from Charles de Gaulle and Orly airports by public transport or taxi. The owner (an American) will be happy to answer any questions you may have about the apartment, the neighborhood or Paris.
The apartment is independent and guests will have full use of the space, including cable TV, free phone calls to over 90 countries, free wifi internet access, a well equipped kitchen, guide books, useful information and recommendations for local cafés, restaurants, bars, boutiques and sites. And best of all, an award-winning bakery is just down the stairs on the ground floor - fresh bagettes, croissants and pastries are never far away.
Interaction with guests
The host, an American photojournalist, has had a base in Paris for more than 20 years. Although I travel a great deal and rent my apartment out when I'm away, I know and love the neighborhood well. I am always available to answer any questions you may have, but will let you enjoy your sojourn in Paris without being a bother.
The apartment is in the heart of Montmartre just a few steps from the Sacre Coeur and it's gardens as well as all of Montmartre's numerous attractions. While in proximity to popular tourist attractions, the apartment is located in an authentic Montmartre neighborhood replete with cafés, local restaurants, bars, music spots, galleries, shops and boutiques. The neighborhood is lively, but the apartment is on a quiet, one-way street where you won't be disturbed by traffic or noise. Although in the middle of a major international city, the neighborhood has the feel of a village.
The apartment is easily accessible from Paris' two major airports - only two stops on the metro from the Gare du Nord where the airport trains arrive. It is also easily accessible from Paris' other train stations. There are three metro stations that service three different metro lines within a few minutes walk from the apartment, so it is quick and direct to get just about anywhere in Paris. There are also numerous bus lines that pass nearby.
Other things to note
Paris has many wonderful neighborhoods to discover and explore, but I have lived in this neighborhood for more than 15 years and wouldn't live anywhere else. I'm happy to answer any questions you may have and to make suggestions to help you have an authentic experience of Montmartre and to feel like you're living in Paris, if only for a few days.
Be respectful of the apartment and the neighbors, clean and enjoy your stay in the neighborhood and in Paris.
