About This Listing
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.
My classmate and I spent nine days in Jeff's apartment and we absolutely loved it. Everything was a short distance away, and the Sacre Coeur was literally up the street. The metro station was only a couple of blocks away which made it easy to travel around the city. The apartment was comfortable and fully equipped. This apartment definitely met our expectations and we would definitely recommend it to anyone interested in visiting Paris. Thanks Jeff!
Jeff was a really good host, even more friendly and supportive than I expected. His place is well-located in a cozy part of Montmartre. In addition, his flat is clean and have everything you need, including cutleries, kitchen appliances, toiletries and both beds are pretty comfortable.
Sure I will recommend it to my friends. And once again, thanks a lot Jeff!
We had such an amazing stay here. The area was beautiful. Jeff could not have been a more helpful and accommodating host, so lovely, and such a great place to stay, would definitely recommend to anyone looking to stay in the area
Jeff was waiting for us at the apartment at the appointed time. He was very friendly and is vey informative about the apartment and gave some great tips where to go, eat, drink, have coffee and shop in the lovely neighborhood Montmartre. The apartment is really in the midst of this famous part of Paris.
L'appartamento è come promesso, piccolo ma c'è tutto il necessario per stare confortevolmente. Il proprietario, Jeff, è gentilissimo, simpatico e puntuale, ci ha dato informazioni molto dettagliate, sia riguardo all'appartamento che alla strada per arrivare.
Jeff, our host, made us feel very much at ease, contacting us by email to make sure we knew the way from the Metro and sending us very clear instructions. He was waiting at the apartment at the time we had agreed upon, and showed us how to deal with the locks, hot water system etc before leaving us with the invitation to phone him at any time if we had questions.
As it happened we had no need to contact him again until the final morning when he had offered to look after our luggage until mid-afternoon as another visitor was due in the morning and our train didn't leave till after four o'clock. This worked very well and we were very grateful to him for his help and promptness in meeting us with the bags again at 2.30.
The apartment is small but very well equipped and was just as cosy and atmospheric as it looked in the photos. We didn't expect equipment to be new and everything we needed was provided (including two umbrellas and hair-dryers) and was all very serviceable. The beds and bedding were excellent. The wifi and TV were very good, too.
We chose Jeff's apartment for its homely ambience and its location in Montmartre, very near Sacre-Coeur, Les Halles de St Jacques and several metro stations giving us easy access to the Gare du Nord, Gare St Lazare and every other area of the Ile de France that we might want to visit.
The apartment is in a side street leading to the rue de Clignancourt. It's a mixed area and within five minutes you are in a predominantly African section of the city, as you would expect in Montmartre. We felt perfectly safe and at ease there. As you might expect, there was quite a lot of noise, some nights, until late, but we got used to it and almost overslept on the last morning!
The other residents of the block were very pleasant, friendly young French people and there is an excellent boulangerie/patisserie on the ground floor. There's a large supermarket just round the corner, and many small restaurants and clothes shops also nearby.
We enjoyed our stay very much and if we come back to Montmartre we'll make Jeff's apartment our first choice.

About the Host, Jeff
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.
