This is your opportunity to stay in Montmartre one of the most colorful, mixed and touristy areas of Paris and live like a real Parisian half way between the Basilica of the Sacré-Coeur and the Moulin Rouge. Appreciate the feeling of being at home, and enjoy the calm of this small 1 bedroom apartment after a busy day discovering the city.
Located on the 3rd French floor of an 18th century walk up classic Parisian building, this very quiet small 1 bedroom apartment of 32 m2 (340 sq ft) with its parquet floor, offers a master bedroom with a double bed and a desk, a bright living room with a sofa bed and a meal corner. Better suited for a couple it can host up to 4 people (ideally 2 adults and 2 children).
The small kitchen is fully equipped with a refrigerator, washing machine, microwave, electric oven, coffee machine, so you can enjoy your meals in the apartment.
The building is on a ‘cul de sac’ and the apartment backs onto a private courtyard. You will appreciate the calm and the clear view while being in the center of Montmartre, an eclectic and touristy Parisian neighborhood. This mythical district where many artists as Dalí, Modigliani, Monet, Picasso and Van Gogh had studios or worked has a unique feel of a small village within the city with many attractions, boutiques, restaurants, wineries, fromageries...
A professional maid is in charge of the cleaning and ensures that bed linen and towels are changed before and after stays.

Interaction with Guests
It’s important to keep communication flowing prior and during you stay. If you need information, directions, have an issue or complaint don’t hesitate to contact me.
I try to meet all my guests. As I work during the day and travel quite often this is not always possible, yet my wife or friends are always available and I’m just an email away to help you as you get acquainted with Paris.
The apartment is located in the heart of the lively, colorful, mixed and touristy neighborhood of Montmartre steps away to the metro station Anvers (200 meters), the Basilica of the Sacré-Coeur (300 meters) and the Moulin Rouge.
The apartment is in the crossroad of 4 different areas of Montmartre:
Touristy up north, popular to the west, trendy to the east and familiar down south.
This is an eclectic neighborhood, with ‘real’ Parisians living and lots of tourists visiting. A mix of cultures and nationalities makes this area authentic and always busy yet safe.
In Montmartre's hill many of the 18th century buildings are still intact, giving the neighborhood a history-charged feel. By contrast, the area is also known for its art scene and its trendsetting qualities.
FROM THE NEW YORK TIMES TRAVEL EDITION:
“Few neighborhoods in the world are as associated with art as Montmartre in Paris. Since the middle of the 19th century, it has been attracting artists with its enchanting location overlooking Paris, the domed Basilica de Sacré-Coeur, winding, cobblestone streets and cozy cafes. Monet, Van Gogh, Dali and Picasso are only a few of the great names associated with the district.”
FROM THE AIRBNB NEIGHBOORHOOD GUIDE TO PARIS:
“This idyllic inner-Paris neighborhood boasts the best of Parisian art, culture, and romance.
There’s a reason why Montmartre is always bustling. This iconic hilltop neighborhood’s striped awnings, cobblestone streets, and lively plazas rest at the foot of its pilgrimage-worthy basilica, Sacre Coeur. The neighborhood’s sacred structure and artisanal shops encourage frequent foot traffic, but Montmartre's ceaseless activity invites more than pleasure strollers along its cinema-worthy streets—entrepreneurial misfits add a picaresque slant to Montmartre’s picturesque street scenes.”
Three subway lines and many buses just steps away will bring you straight to all attractions (Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame, Le Louvre...) and shopping areas (Galeries Lafayette, Avenue Montaigne, Rue du Faubourg St Honoré) and 4 Railway stations (Gare du Nord, Gare de l'Est, Gare Montparnasse and Gare St Lazare).
The nearest subway station is Anvers (200 meters).
It's super easy to get to the apartment from the all Paris airports.
A public parking is available at 100 meters.
Everyone respectful to neighbors and considerate to the space is welcomed. No "party" types.
This is a very quiet residential building so please keep noise down during your stay especially at night.
If you smoke, make sure to ventilate the apartment for the comfort of the next guests.
Please remember to take out the trash; the waste bin is in the courtyard behind the doors on the right.
This was our first AirBnB experience, so we were a little nervous about using the platform, but we couldn't have asked for a better first host than Gabriel.
As soon as we booked, he sent an email confirming all of our details so he could make the appropriate arrangements. Immediately prior to our arrival, Gabriel provided very clear instructions about how to get to the apartment, where to find everything, etc. We arrived late, so we weren't able to meet in person, but he still made our arrival easy and enjoyable. He also provided great recommendations for some of the restaurants in the area, which I sincerely appreciated. We tried a few and they were excellent!
The apartment itself is in a fabulous location, just down the hill from Sacre Coeur. It's right between two Metro stops, so is very accessible if you plan to use public transportation. The apartment is minimally-decorated, but very well-cared for, and comfortable. It has a charming view of some of the Parisian rooftops, and even though it's situated in Montemarte, you don't hear a ton of the noise - even with the windows open. The only struggle we had was with the bathroom, which is more due to our familiarity with large American bathrooms, and both my husband and I being over 6ft tall. The shower is very small, so if you're tall, you'll have to do some gymnastics to make it work.
Overall, we had a fabulous stay, made smooth and efficient by our wonderful host. We'll certainly look to stay again the next time we're in Paris.
Gabriel s'est inquiété quotidiennement de savoir si tout se passait bien et si nous avions besoin de conseils ou d'aide.
L'appartement est très calme et très propres
A coté du métro, très pratique pour se déplacer dans Paris
De plus nous avons eu une météo splendide !
Staying at Gabriel's listing in Montmarte was a treat. The apartment was very accessible via the metro and near lots of restaurants and bars to enjoy. Also Gabriel's communication and assistance was absolutely wonderful. My only inside notes regarding the apartment is that the bathroom is extremely small and tight (as covered in previous reviews), the place is decorated with the very minimum, which threw me off at first and finally the standard winding staircase may be a bit tricky to navigate with large or multiple luggage ( as it was for me especially after arriving from a 3 flight journey). Nonetheless Gabriel's attentiveness, the strong wifi and the wonderful view of the courtyard and neighboring rooftops makes it all up. I would definitely recommend this location for travelers looking for an affordable stay in a great part of Paris!
Very handy location and nice, quiet, small Parisian styled flat.
Gabriel was phenomenally helpful and full of clear directions and good advice.
Definitely recommend if it'll be your first time in Paris.
Gabriel is very friendly, very well organised for to welcome you at your best convenience, particularly reactive to stay in touch if you need any advice, tips and driving you around Paris for your purpose. The flat is clean, well located in Paris, good wifi. I recommand Gabriel for tour stay in Paris!
Overall : 4/10

I had a short and improvised visit to Paris; yet, Gabriel was fast, efficient, clear and incredibly helpful. I did not get to meet him in person but he's quite a reliable host.
The place is just as it's shown.
Way to go Gabriel, thanks again.
