« By far the best place we stayed ever at, in Paris. We go there at least twice a year on business, and have stayed in various hotels and apartments. This apartment fits the description in every aspect and it was a pleasure to deal with the owner. The place is spacious, clean, has any amenity you could wish for and perfect location. We were very comfortable there and would love to stay there again, next time.
Thank you Jean Michel! »

The apartment is just a few hundred feet downhill from one of Paris' breathtaking monuments: the SACRE COEUR and its great view on Paris.
The walk to Sacre Coeur is charming as you make your way up hill via stairs and quiet cobble stone streets.
Our part of Montmarte is a rich mix of ethnic and young Parisians, Prim old ladies, jocular bistro owners, young artists - everyone knows everyone in our neighborhood, and unlike in Paris’s chillier, more bourgeois neighborhoods, here we say “hello.”
We're in a perfect place to go and explore Paris from.
- Next to Buses and Subway lines.
- If you are coming from or heading to London, Brussel or Amsterdam, the apartment is not far from Gare du Nord

« Perfect, a beautiful, spacious and elegant apartment. Every detail is lovely. Both Jean-Michel and Martine are thoughtful, generous hosts whose recommendations and advice were fantastic. Montmartre is rich with diversity and without exception the people were friendly and helpful. I would love to return to this wonderful place, thank you so much."

« I highly recommend this lovely flat. We had a wonderful experience here. It is very light, with very high ceilings, and quite roomy. It is spare and uncluttered, but well-appointed. Everything was extremely clean and fresh. There was plenty of bedding and towels. The bed was the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. The neighborhood was great, and easy to get to and to get around the city. The host, Martine, was fantastic--friendly, helpful and full of great information. Jean-Michel provided a very helpful package with info on getting to the neighborhood & flat, places in the area, etc. We'll definitely come back. »

« Jean-michel is not lying when he says his apartment is big and beautiful! Compared to other Parisian apartments, which are notoriously tiny, this one is a palace in size, light and airy and very good value. We LOVED the area. It's one thing to be in walking distance to Sacre Coeur and Pigalle, but it's even better when you can also feel a part of a small neighborhood even for a few days; excellent fresh produce just across the street, the sweetest friendly barista who tries so hard to help you understand French, the excellent food, wine and staff at Cheri Bibi and other close by bars, a passionately delicious fromagerie, artisan boulangeries in morning-stroll distance. We also loved the less traveled back streets which take you up and down and around the back of Sacre Coeur and the street energy around the Metro stations very close by. We had a great stay and highly recommend this apartment! »

DESCRIPTION OF MY NEIGHBORHOOD :
Most visitors and residents of Paris are familiar with the famous Butte de Montmartre, and its wedding-cake Basilique Sacré-Coeur. After Amélie and Baz Luhrmann’s Moulin Rouge, even people who have never been there before recognize the Place des Abbesses and the neon windmill at Place Clichy.
But that’s only half the story of this unique Parisian village. Look past the Sacre Coeur and the Moulin Rouge for a Montmartre off the beaten tourist path. Village Ramey next to Abbesses is where resident Parisians eat and shop – and live - without a postcard stand, tour bus, or portrait artist in sight!
Just a few hundred feet downhill from Sacre Coeur and from the overly trendy Abbesses, in the Village Ramey quartier, a more authentic kind of charm is still alive. the small streets winding down the hill are calm and seem to feel a world away. Sure, its cobblestoned streets are being slicked up by trendy boutiques (gentrification is really kicking in turning Village Ramey into the new Abbesses), but the surrounding lanes are still lined with vegetable stands and open-air cafés.
And if you want and explore paris, jump in the bus (line 80, 85, 31) or subway (Line 2). Bus 85 gets you to the Jardin de Luxembourg, Notre Dame and the Louvre. Bus 80 bus takes you along the beautiful rue Caulaincourt and zooms you over to the Champs Elysée by the scenic route allowing you to take in the architecture and grandeur of Paris' arrondissements. Bus 31 gets you to Gare du Nord et gare de L’Est if you need to take the train at one of those train station. Bus 31 also gets you directly to l’Arc de triomphe on top of the Champs Elysee.
In the booklet, you will see all kind of practical information about the neighborhood and the apartment... What to know about the apartment. What to do and not do. How to get to the apartment... etc. We ask you to be respectful of the space and our neighbors. (No loud parties please!) - We also ask you to not overuse the heat. It gets hot quickly in the apartment and the electric bill can go up quikcly. Thank you! We will provide you with all kind of useful contact information in case of emergency (doctor, dentist...)
I'll send you the booklet after the reservation is confirmed and before your arrival.
Again -- Late check in (after 8pm) necessitate extra organization and can be done for an extra 30 Euros.
The second time as good as the first only better - your gone is central - easy to access and close to all amenities - thanks again - Lee
Mit meiner Frau und einem Freund waren wir Silvester 2014/15 in Paris, und haben die Zeit im wunderschönen Apartment von Jean Michel verbracht.
Empfangen und betreut wurden wir vor Ort von Martine. Ein ganz lieber und warmherziger Mensch, mit vielen Tipps und Anregungen. Bei Fragen stand sie uns hilfreich zur Seite. Bei unserem nächsten Besuch werden wir definitiv wieder Kontakt aufnehmen.
Das großzügige und ruhige Apartment war für uns drei optimal. Eine gut eingerichtete Küche, und nahegelegene Supermärkte, ermöglichten eine perfekte Selbstversorgung. Die Schlafzimmer sind komfortabel und ruhig gelegen. Das Bad ist nett eingerichtet, hat eine herrliche Regenschauer-Dusche und schön heißes Wasser.
Das Viertel ist kulturell gemischt und hat viele schöne Ecken, einladende Cafes und Boutiquen zum Shoppen. Sacre Coeur ist in ca. 10min zu Fuß erreichbar und bietet einen herrlichen Blick auf Paris.
Gern kommen wir an diesen schönen Ort wieder.
Au revoir, Torsten
We wanted a place to make an apartment home for our Paris adventure with our young adult children, who live hundreds of miles from us. That is exactly what we got!
Martine, the local host, and Jean Michel provided us with abundant, well-organized information that made us feel confident and at home before we even arrived. Martine helped us out when one of us had delayed baggage, and then she gave us the privacy we want.
The washer came in handy given the lost baggage issue, and the apartment was a comfortable haven when one of us came down with a virus. The wireless, TV, and phone worked great. We were able to make coffee in the morning for ourselves and to prepare Noël dinner for ourselves. We were within steps of transit and Sacrée Coeur, and yet when in the immediate neighborhood we felt like guests rather than tourists.
All homes have quirks. The quirk of greatest note here is that it takes time for hot water to return. Those who come should not plan to take long hot showers in sequence.
This is a beautiful, peaceful, spacious home full of character. The apartment played a major role in our most excellent adventure in Paris.
The apartment was wonderful central easy access to everything - wonderful greeting and all round enjoyable - thank you and looking forward to our next stay in the new year
The greeting was fantastic. We were also offered further information to help with our trip by the host. The apartment was spacious and in a very convenient area close to the metro and shops. We did experience a blackout though due to the use of the dishwasher and washing machine all at once and had to have a helpful neighbour show us where the fuse box was to get the power back on.
Host's representative was very cordial and helpful. Although rushed. The apartment was described as a 1.5 bath to our shock it was really what we consider a 1 bath or toilette. The single toilette without sink was in a very small closet in the entry hall, a separate room with shower, sink and washing machine located off the same entry was a bit tired. There is only a toilette in the entry way closet, no sink. In our selection of an apartment having two toilettes was a strong consideration and thus the reason for our displeasure with the accuracy of the listing. Although the apartment is airy it lacks any real warmth as there is little or no art on walls, noise is bright and loud as there is no carpeting. Beds comfortable but very basic. There is noise from the stairway if you are in the small bedroom. The neighborhood is lively and could be intimidating ( enough so that Martine mentioned you would be safe) to some, a few blocks away are lovely areas of Montmartre and a wonderful atmosphere. Kitchen and Bath could be a bit cleaner. It is a commercial building on the ground floor.
Over all it would have been a pleasant experience and all could have been overlooked if the listing was more accurate.
Martine made us feel amazingly welcome. She was so accommodating before we even arrived in France and showed us around. She even told us about the neighborhood and restaurants (including where not to walk alone after dark!). We had more than enough space, the location is great, close to a metro stop, and we would definitely stay here again!
