Description from owner
The enchantment of Parisian living with the luxury of modern amenities.
Located at the foot of the 'village' of Montmartre, the apartment was recently remodeled to preserve the original charm dating back to 1869, while providing for a comfortable stay in the city of lights. With over 900 square feet and two large bedrooms, guests have plenty of room to relax and make themselves at home. Five glass double doors bathe the apartment in sunlight and allow access to two separate balconies that run the length of the apartment. The living room seating area provides two couches as a comfortable space to recount the day's adventures. A well appointed kitchen and dining table for 6 people allow for a home cooked meal of local ingredients purchased from neighborhood markets. The original wooden floors will tell you the tales of Montmatre's days gone by, while a short walk up the hill through the lively village of Montmartre will find you at the foot of Sacre Coeur,

“Convenience to Paris with a taste of real apartment living”
My family of four were looking for a larger space with amenities while visiting Paris. This is a wonderful apartment which reflects how many Parisians live. This was ideal and had many services we were looking for including kitchen, internet and convenience to Metro. It was perfect in this regard. Great patisserie within 30 feet and good non-touristy local restaurants. The downsides to the place was the outside noise when windows were open and a dryer that never seemed to get the clothes dry. Never felt unsafe walking in the area.
Kevin, Thank you for your review and happy to hear the apartment was to your family's enjoyment. I understand and agree on your feedback on the clothes dryer being under-powered; they are not built as powerful in France as in USA (we have tried many models over the years in different apartments in Paris). We thank you and your family for taking such great care of our home during your visit to Paris. Luke
“The apartment was fantastic and very clean.”
We had an amazing time, the apartment was extremely clean. Easy walk to market, subway and taxi rank. Traveling with children was made much easier having a large space well-equipped kitchen and washing facilities. If planning a few weeks in Paris this is a great base.
Christiana, We are happy to hear your family enjoyed the apartment, finding it to be spacious, well equipped and "extremely" clean. (I will pass on your thanks to our cleaner!) We thank you and your children for taking such good care of our place during your stay! Luke
“Charming, authentic, perfect.”
This apartment has everything we were looking for - charm, space, a good modern, well equipped, kitchen and bathroom. Two nice and spacious bedrooms and a large sitting room gave us a really relaxing Paris stay. The house is built in the 1860's I believe, and most of the original details are beautifully preserved. The apartment is supplied with plenty of Paris guides for all tastes along with the hosts personal recommendations. The neighbourhood, the 18th, is as parisian you can get. Bustling, vibrant, friendly and just a short walk from the Sacre Coeur. The Metro station Chateau Rouge is just across the street, from there you're in the Marais, by the Notre Dame or on the left bank in 8 minutes. But if you want to experience the different moods of Paris I recommend you walk. A walk to the Quartier Latin takes an hour and a half with kids. We'd certainly love to stay in this apartment again - if you are looking for a stay which enhances the feeling of being in Paris - don't miss this.
LPloom, 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!
“Spacious, Beautiful, Convenient!”
Everything that others have written are absolutely true: fantastic apartment near Sacre Coeur. The apartment design is classic with fabulous fireplaces, mirrors, chandeliers, floor to ceiling windows with soundproofing, gorgeous old wood floors. Kitchen and bathroom are fully modernized, with gas cooktop, electric oven and microwave, great rain shower and power shower (no tub-didn't miss it). We never cooked anything but breakfast and barely that with more than one boulangerie nearby selling croissants to die for. A tip about the coffeemaker, be sure to manually switch it off when your cup is full, it doesn't shut off automatically like a Keurig machine (whoops). And the beds are indeed unbelievably comfortable. There is no air conditioning, but we would leave the windows open all evening before retiring to let in the cool air, then close them up and run the electric fans that were in the storage closet and we slept like the dead. Streets were too noisy for us to leave the windows open all night- sirens going all night, occasional loud arguments on the street, etc. As for owner/managers, Luke has really provided all of the needed information in a very helpful notebook, and also signs they have posted around the apartment. Caroline, the manager, was very friendly and helpful in getting us acclimated as well. The apartment was spotless upon our arrival and we very much appreciated the bottle of wine as a welcome gift. Also, there is unlimited wi-fi, which was huge for our teenage daughter! The only reason for 4 stars is that the street is not what you might imagine when looking at the interior shots of the apartment and knowing that it is in the Montmartre area, the street itself is definitely working class, not a tourist area. Lots of weave and wig shops, road construction down at the corner, very lively and noisy. But remember this is a huge space for the price, it felt totally safe, and the metro station is literally a block away. The basilica is also a short walk up the hill where you will find the long steps/stairs, which lead up into the artsy and very touristy area. Be sure to check out the fantastic view overlooking the entire city from the steps of the church around sunset. One other recommendation is if you are looking for fantastic crepes in a sit-down restaurant, there a creperie in the area called La Bolee d'Armorique-look it up! A couple of details to note, there is a hair dryer and clothes steamer in the bathroom, body wash is provided as well. We could have used an iron and ironing board, a broom for sweeping up our breakfast crumbs, and a few extra towels, there were only 3 towels provided; we had 3 people in there for 5 days. But of course there is a washer/dryer, so there can always be clean towels if you do enough laundry. Overall this was a wonderful Paris holiday with a superb apartment to come home to. Highly recommend!
Thank you for your very helpful and informative Review, and for your family's taking such great care of our apartment during your stay! When choosing our home in Paris, it was the highly unusual mix of a large space with such classic historic interior charms that you speak of that captured our imagination: fireplaces, mirrors, chandeliers, old parquet wood floors in Hungarian-point pattern. We endeavored to modernize the kitchen and bathroom, from floor to ceiling and everything in between, to bring the space into the comfort and luxury of the 21st century. Coffee machine: Yes, our Nespresso machine is a simple model, so must push the button to shut-off; thank you for reminder, I will aim to place a more permanent note on the machine. Guests are invited to bring or buy Nespresso capsules of their preference! Yes, in the heights of summer when the temperatures peak in Paris, our apartment can benefit from a nice cross-breeze to cool it down while you are home and inside. As people do stay out in the city later during the warmer months, we usually close the windows at night to dampen noise from outside, as you did. Glad to hear you found the information binder and signs helpful, and the apartment clean and spotless. And that you enjoyed the space! At 85 sq meters (900 sq ft) the apartment is very large for Paris these days. Again, thank you for your helpful review and feedback, as well as taking great care of our place during your stay!
“Live like a local!”
Firstly Luke the owner is extremely helpful and honest. This apartment is exactly how it looks in the photos. If you want to live like a local, renting an apartment is the way to go. My children played every afternoon in the courtyard with the gorgeous French children who lived in the apartment block. This was their highlight of their visit to Paris. The apartment is perfect for a family of six. There is plenty of room for children to move around instead of being restricted to a small, expensive hotel room. The apartment has grand mirrors above the four fireplaces in each room and gorgeous chandeliers hanging in the living room. The kitchen and bathroom are practically brand new. There are plenty of supermarkets a short walk away and a beautiful bakery a couple of doors down. The Metro station Chateau Rouge is across the road. It can get quite noisy some nights and apartment is in African area of Paris. Big positive is that is walking distance to Sacre Couer and old village of Montmartre.
Thank you for your kind and lovely review of our apartment, we sincerely appreciate it!
“Very Nice Apartment”
This apartment was a very nice base to see Paris from. It's easy walking distance from multiple metro stops, one of which is practically across the street. The street it's on is a little unusual with all of the hair weave shops but it's also really interesting and the people on the street were friendly, it was certainly not a problem area. The apartment is only a five minute walk to the Sacre Couer and the heart of Montmartre, and there are plenty of amenities near by including a very large supermarket. The building is old, and yes the floors squeak, but it's very charming and in very good condition. Very clean and well maintained. The manager was very friendly and helpful. I wouldn't say it was a terribly child friendly rental, at least not for a very young child. Unlike some vacation rentals there are not a lot of extras in the apartment. There were just enough towels provided - one bath towel for each person, one hand towel in the kitchen and one in the bath, and one kitchen towel. There wasn't enough toilet paper for our 3 day stay and I had to run and buy some along with paper towels. We have a toddler, we mop up a lot of spills. There were also no extra blankets, and we had to put our little one down with a huge comforter over her because there was nothing lighter available. Also, you can absolutely hear the upstairs neighbors, and while they weren't up particularly late or making an obscene amount of noise it was hard to put our toddler down to bed at 8pm, she didn't get to sleep until after 9 a single night. While there weren't any toys or anything she LOVED the antique bird cage. I have lots of cute pics. I would certainly recommend the apartment, though perhaps not for those traveling with a very young child. If I were back in Paris with just my husband or another adult friend I would certainly consider staying again.
Thank you for sharing your wonderful and helpful review of your stay at our apartment, and for taking such great care of the apartment during your family's stay. Yes, multiple grocery stores are within a 2 block walk, including the recent large renovated Carrefour on rue Clignancourt, 1.5 blocks away. We do provide a towel for each guests staying in the apartment; true that we do not provide 2 bath towels for each guest, as such number of towels in the apartment are not normally required by most guests during their vacation stay, particularly with the washing and drying machine available in the apartment. For consumable items like toilette paper, a minimum 2 rolls is provided, as per the rental agreement; as most families wish to buy some basic supplies at the neighborhood grocery stores for the apartment, any such additional supplies are usually purchased by our guests according to their preferences.
“Chic, Classic Parisian Apartment”
We had a wonderful stay over New Year at Luke and Jennifer's apartment, only a short walk away from the Sacré-Cœur. The apartment was immaculately clean when we arrived. Caroline, the apartment manager, was very kind and helpful, giving us all the information we would need to have a wonderful stay. The apartment itself was very charming - the shower was fabulous, the kitchen was brand new. We cooked at the apartment quite a lot and never lacked of utensils, etc. We were a family of 6 adults and one child (three-year-old). There was plenty of space and we never felt cramped. The location was perfect - many restaurants and attractions right at the doorstep. Thank you so much Luke, Jennifer and Caroline for a wonderful stay! I hope we are able to come back again, and will definitely recommend your place to our friends and family for their Paris stay!
We are so happy to hear of your family's wonderful experience and enjoyment of our apartment! 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!

“Parigi dall'alto di Montmarte”
Ho soggiornato in questo bellissimo appartamento con un gruppo di 5 amiche e siamo molto soddisfatte della tipologia scelta. Tipico appartamento parigino accogliente e confortevole. Ottima manutenzione, accurata pulizia. É inoltre molto comodo perché provvisto di una spaziosa sala da pranzo, grandi stanze da letto e una cucina molto ben attrezzata. In conclusione, rispecchia perfettamente la descrizione originale. Ringrazio ancora i proprietari e la Sig.ra Caroline per la disponibilitá e l 'attenzione nei nostri confronti. Lo consiglio con molta sincertá.
Grazie mille for your kind and informative Review of the apartment. Happy that you found the apartment and large bedrooms comfortable, clean and excellently maintained. The large 85 square meters space provided by our apartment offers a lot of room to breathe and relax after a busy day in Paris.
“Beautiful, typical Parisian apartment - a great base from which to explore Paris.”
Lovely spacious traditional style Parisian apartment in Montmartre. The apartment is tastefully furnished and the kitchen was well equipped. There is a lovely shower room and a concealed washer & dryer which was great travelling with children. The metro station (Chateau rouge) is literally a minute from the apatrment and there are several bakeries & supermarkets just 5 mins walk away. We could easily walk to Sacre Coeur and the surrounding area. We would definitely return to this apartment and would recommend it to others.
