About this listing
This charming and spacious apartment 5min walk from Montmartre and Gare du Nord on a quiet street in the hip area of the 9eme. With three rooms it can accommodate 6 people. Enjoy a fully equipped kitchen and corner bath.
This charming apartment lies just 5 minutes walk from the Gare du Nord, Sacre Coeur and Pigalle. It's located on a quiet street in the trendy and chic 9th arrondissement. Avenue Trudaine and Rue des Martyrs are on the doorstep, with their collection of lively, local restaurants, bars and cafes, gorgeous boutiques, vintage shops and independent food shops from heaven
(Rose Bakery, Hotel Amour, Corso, Le Carmen, KB Cafeshop, Le Pantruche). We've compiled a list of our favourite local hangouts to help you make the most of your stay in this delightful neighbourhood.
The apartment is full of life and colour. With high ceilings, original coving, fireplaces, wooden floors and stylish decor you'll hopefully feel as cosy and Parisian as it makes us feel. It's clean and very comfortable, yet it's a LIVED-IN apartment with it's own quirks and uniqueness (including a few scuffs and scratches it's picked up over the years, and a few walls could do with a lick of paint where it's peeling a bit, which we'll get round to soon!), many books, jars, clothes and photos. It's principally our home, which we love, and want to share with you. But if you're looking for pristine, hotel-like apartment, then this may not be the best option for you.
It's in a very nice, well-kept and safe building, with 2 separate digital entrance doors and a leafy courtyard (with cats).
The apartment is on the 4th floor of a typical 19th century Parisian building - unfortunately there's no evevator!.
The main bedroom has a double bed, fireplace, and desk space. The living room has a double sofa bed. The study bedroom has a double sofa bed, desk space and fireplace.
They all have double glass windows overlooking the courtyard with flower window boxes (and occasionally little birds). They are light, spacious and full of character.
The sunny en-suite bathroom has a big corner bathtub, a powerful shower, washing machine and hairdryer. We provide clean bed sheets and clean towels.
You can cook at home with a fully equipped kitchen (oven, 6 gas hobs, kettle, toaster, presse-agrume, table & chairs for 6).
We have powerful wifi internet. No tv (we hope you won't have time for tele!). Phone access with free landline calls to Europe.
We ask that the apartment is left as you found it. Clean, and loved.

No smoking, and we'd like you to leave the flat reasonably tidy, wash up and take out the trash. Also we have some photography equipment in the flat, and we'd prefer that younger children were kept away from anything delicate. But otherwise make yourselves at home!
