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.
The two south facing windows bath the main room of the studio in sunlight all day long. The main room is decorated with antique furniture and original photography. There are books, travel guides, maps and brochures for guests to use.
This cozy studio apartment (20m2/215ft2) 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 new w/ 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) and his wife (an Italian) are 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 lives just around the corner and is available to answer any questions you may have, but he lets 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, clean and enjoy your stay at the apartment, in the neighborhood and in Paris.
great flat! Small but fully equipped, very well located in a nice neighbourhood. Good value for money and very nice host
I stayed in Jeff's apartment in Montmartre with my 17 year old daughter. The apartment is just as described and incredibly well equipped. It's things like sellotape, scissors, spare batteries, more towels/bed linen and carrier bags ( so you don't need to pay for some in the supermarkets) which make a massive difference.
He was available as needed and very kindly bought an adaptor for our plug when I realised I'd taken the wrong one!
His suggestions for eating and shopping were brilliant and there are plenty of maps and guidebooks if needed.
The apartment was lovely and warm, but has windows to open if needed. The beds were comfy and the kitchen does actually have everything ( and more!) - again, brilliant.
It was fabulous to stay in such a thoughtfully set up apartment- there's nothing I'd change and we plan to return.
Easy access to Chateau Rouge or Abbesses Metro so great to get around Paris...although we walked as much as we could!
Jeff gave us great directions from Gare du Nord which made getting to our Paris home easy and stress free.
If you're looking for somewhere to stay in central Montmartre, look at this. Great apartment, great price and fabulous host!
Thank you so much

Jeff was incredible welcoming and generous when we got to the apartment. We loved the area immediately as its at the foot of the scare coeur and had a lot of character. He recommended some places to go and was very quick to reply to any messages we sent for example we forgot to print out a eurostar ticket and he very kindly printed it for us. The shower was very hot so took a bit to adjust to but better than being cold and everything was there for us. We had a fantastic time thank you again.
très bien accueilli par Jeff*** amabilité service sourire tout pour se sentir bien à laisse ***j'espère revenir j'aime beaucoup ce quartier de paris
Aunque coincidi poco con Jeff, estuvo muy atento. El apartamento se encuentra en una zona muy buena y muy accesible. Estuve muy a gusto.
Jeff was welcoming and so helpful with directions, and super flexible about our arrival when our train was canceled. The apartment was very convenient to several different train lines, and it was very easy to get pretty much anywhere we needed to go. The kitchen was the perfect size to fix breakfast in, store amazing baguettes from the bakery downstairs, or get supplies from the list of shops that Jeff gave us. Would totally recommend it to anyone for their first trip to Paris!

I've spent a lifetime traveling the world and have enjoyed the hospitality of the people I've met all along the way. In the great nomadic tradition, I also enjoy being host to travelers who come to Paris, where I have lived for more than 20 years.
