We are so happy to hear your family enjoyed your stay and experience in our apartment. Indeed, the building dates to 1869, and we selected it as our home years ago due to the rarity of finding so many of the historical French interior architectural charms, combined with such a large living room, large bedrooms and space between them all. The kitchen and bathroom were our major investment, to bring up to a level of 21st Century comfort and modest luxury.
Montmartre, as it has always been, is a bustling and bohemian mix of peoples, and the small streets around the Montmartre hill can add touches of ?village life? to the neighborhoods (even though it is still full of ?big city people?).
We agree that walking is the best walk to experience Paris. To the Moulin Rouge is 20min, to the Opera is 30min and to the Louvre museum (and river Seine) is 40min.
We thank you and your family for taking such good care of our home during your trip and for sharing your experience with other travelers!

Pleased to hear the many points of feedback.
Clean: Will pass on your thanks to our cleaner!
Shower and Kitchen: Our two major renovations to the apartment to add a touch of modern luxury... happy that you appreciated them!
Space: At 85 square meters, the apartment is very large for Paris, and does allow for a comfortable space for family's travelling and relaxing during the enjoyment of the city.
Location: The hillside Montmartre neighborhood has some of Paris's most charming small streets and winding hidden neighborhoods; we chose it for that same reason!
We would welcome your friends and family on any future trips to Paris!
Thank you again!
