Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 3
Situated on the first floor in a "Montmartois" building, French Kiss is a romantic and cozy hideaway located on in a cobble-stoned passage. The name of the apartment was inspired by Doisneau's "Le Baiser de L'Hôtel de Ville", which you find prominently featured in the living room. Never was a more romantic image of Paris taken by one of the world's most renowned photographers. Other images of Paris that have circled the world are featured throughout the apartment.
The apartment has been tastefully decorated to give you a feeling of calm and tranquility even in the busy city of lights. The rooms overlook a small inner courtyard and large windows allow in plenty of natural light. This cozy, intimate retreat is a lovely place which to call home during your stay with us in Paris so we hope to see you soon at French Kiss.

The Paris/Ile de France region
Montmartre has been the home to artists and performers and lovers of the arts for hundreds of years. This is a great location for experiencing the real Paris. Enjoy the buzz of Montmartre and take a step into a relaxed Bohemian atmosphere.
Enjoy an espresso in one of the many bars or cafes or a nice glass of wine on one the terraces. There is always something going on in Montmartre from weekly live jazz performances at local restaurants or the impromptu concert at Place des Abbesses near the Carousel.
The area is home to the Moulin Rouge, Sacre Coeur and the last vineyard in Paris. The stairs on the street lead to the Sacre Coeur cathedral, which is a 2-minute walk from the apartment. From there, you have arguably the best view of Paris.
If you wish to experience a local French market, you can benefit from the rue du Poteau market for the purchasing of your fresh food products. More exotic food finds can be purchased at the Chateau Rouge market (about 5 minutes away), Paris' most famous African market. Rue Poteau also has many specialty shops where you can buy everything from exotic teas and African & Asian foods, to fresh cheese and meat or just a slice of pizza.
