Why The Owner chose 18th Arrondissement Montmartre
Montmartre is a village within Paris: it combines the atmosphere of an ancient village with trendy shops and fabulous restaurants. Many artists and movie stars live in the district. It is a very charming and restful area to be appreciated after a whole day shopping and walking through museums.
As you walk through Montmartre you will pass many winding and picturesque streets with fascinating houses, stairs and wonderful views over Paris. Look for the Montmartre Vineyard, walk to 'Place du Tertre' where artists will offer to draw your portrait and see Picasso’s house and the Salvador Dali museum. Visit the famous Sacre Coeur Moorish-looking church.
On the 'Rue des Abbesses' you will discover shops, cafes and clothing stores and in 'Rue Lepic' you will come across the market, wine shops - the cheese shop was rated n° 3 in France – bakeries and charcuteries. It’ll take a few days to select your preferred “café” !!! Walk down to the Moulin Rouge and experience the Paris nightlife.
On the north side, close to the “Lamarck” metro station is the famous Rue du Poteau Market as well as quaint antique shops.
What makes this apartment unique
The Champs-Elysees is only a ten-minute Metro ride, the Eiffel Tower, Le Marais, Les Halles, and Saint-Germain are all between 15- 20 minutes from Abbesses or Lamarck subway station.
Guestbook comments from the manager
Thank you for a wonderful short holiday in Paris. The apartment was cool and comfortable even when it was 35 degreees outside. The location was perfect and we loved the local cafes and restaurants, I thought places like those had all disappeared! It was great to be able to wander out just a few hundred meters for an aperitif or dinner and find such an eclectic mix of food and flavours!
And for that perfect Parisian tourist experience we loved the restaurant and cafe Les Buttes de Montmartre where a more classic menu and more bourgeois experience can be had and all with a wonderful view down the steps and out over the roof tops of Paris.
You were right all the beds were extremely comfortable and the polished concrete floor is a great comfort to sore feet! The storage space was great too and the whole place felt spacious and was easy to use.
Thanks again for a lovely holiday,
Jane, Grace and Charlotte
