« 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! »
-- YELENA K from NEW YORK.
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.
Thank you. We had a fantastic stay, exploring Paris from this base. Our group comprised 2 Mums and their 12 year old sons. We had a lovely welcome from the local host. She showed us round the appartment and gave us lots of ideas of things to do in Paris, including where to catch the bus, find a supermarket etc. The appartment was just as described. It was very light, large, spacious, clean and had very comfortable beds and a well equipped kitchen. We all slept very well as the bedrooms had shutters. It was also cool which was important as the temperatures were in the 30s when we were in Paris. The appt is well situated in the north of Paris with a bus stop just outside and the metro less than 5 mins walk away.The Sacre Couer and Montmatre are 5 mins walk and there is a Carrefour supermarket 2 mins away and a friendly bakery even closer.
Before our stay, the host sent us a very useful brochure describing the appt with details such as the entry codes for the doors and also ideas of things to do in Paris. On the day of our departure, we were able to leave our bags in the appt.
The listing description was accurate indeed; this is a beautiful apartment, very well maintained and well situated in a quiet street (in August at least), close to the subway. Martine welcomed us as friends, she was very kind and professional. I highly recommend this home for a short stay in Paris.
We were welcomed with a smile by Martine who also gave us lots of recommendations about the area and Paris itself. The apartment was clean and had all the fixings we needed to enjoy our stay. The location was great and close to Metro.
The apartperemt is a true gem in Paris. Very spacious with lots of light, clean and beautiful. Location is very convenient, yet quiet. It was perfect for us with 2 children 7 & 9 yrs old. Communication was very smooth from the beginning to the end. We highly recommend this place. Thank you, Jean-Michel.
Communication with Jean Michel and Martine was excellent. Martine gave us very good information on transport options and was even able to organize the trip to the Airport, seeing as we had so much luggage.
The apartment was as described and comfortable. It was clean, spacious and easily accommodated our family of four people. There are many cafes, bars and restaurants nearby and also a large supermarket. Access to the underground was close and made exploring Paris easy.
My Son and I had a perfect 3 nights in Paris, we were met at the apartment by Martina who told us all we needed to know, The apartment was ideal for us, everything needed was there, a dream kitchen, made it a pleasure to get up and cook a good Breakfast for the start of the day. Transport close at hand, a very comfortable stay. We would hope to stay again if either of us return to Paris, -- John Holland
Great flat, great location. Martine (who met us there) was really helpful and the whole place was spotless. Highly recommended.
