About the home
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.

Enjoy Cable Television with international news channels and stay connected with high speed internet access for your laptop computer. We will be installing a computer in the apartment by the Spring of 2008.

The open-plan kitchen has a combination microwave/oven with several program settings to allow you to either re-heat some of the goodies found in the local shops, or to whip up one of your own delightful meals.

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 Central Paris / 18th / XVIIIe - Montmartre area
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.
How to get there
Click map icons for more information
Just about 20 km from Roissy Charles de Gaulle airport.
You can use the RER B to get into Paris (Gare du Nord). Within the Gare du Nord station follow the signs to towards the metro line 6 (if you are coming in on Eurostar or Thalys walk towards the RER station signs first to begin to see the metro line 6 signs). Take line 6 toward Porte de Clignancourt to metro stop Chateau Rouge which is just a short walk away from where the apartment is located.
Be aware that at CDG airport the line to get a metro ticket to go into Paris can be very long as the automatic ticket machines only work for French credit cards.
You do always have the option of taking a regular taxi but the line is often long and you will be charged a small surplus for bags and of course the meter is running even if the traffic isn't moving.

Great stay. Apartment is well maintained with all facilities needed, including computer and wireless internet.
Location is really good, maybe 100 m from Blanche metro so access from airport is easy. The local area has great food outlets, mostly fresh, plus supermarkets, takeaways, bars, restaurants and entertainment. No real need to go far!
i would happily go back.

We enjoyed our stay at French Kiss. It was a nicely decorated, relatively spacious apartment close to 2 metros, shops, cafes, and practically on the door step of Sacre Coeur. We received a welcome basket on arrival with a nice bottle of wine, we had use of a laptop, free wi-fi, and were also able to phone home free of charge. James who greeted us was very helpful and informative and gave us information about the city. We didnt have any problems with the apartment while we were there & would stay again if we returned to Paris.
We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay in Paris at French Kiss. We look forward to having you with us at this or another one of our apartments.
