ROMANTIQUE MONTMARTRE - LUXURY STUDIO HIDEAWAY

18th Arrondissement Montmartre Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Large Studio Apartment (Sleeps 2)

This romantic and beautiful studio apartment (formerly known as 'Le Diamant') has been freshly designed and renovated with the utmost attention to detail. Located on a quiet one-way street which was made famous by the hit movie “Le Fabuleux Destin d’Amelie Poulain” (yes that Amelie!), it promises you a stay to remember.

As a very spacious studio, the apartment is well laid-out to feel very large, but still cozy for a romantic getaway. From the high-security front door, one enters into a small foyer, which connects to both the bathroom and the bedroom area. The comfortable queen-sized bed is framed with ample storage space. High quality linens adorn the bed. The bedroom area can be separated from the living room by drawing a heavy decorative curtain, to span the width of the apartment -- great for additional family or friends using both sleeping spaces.

Beyond the main sleeping area is the living room and a luxurious sofa bed, above which is a magnificent map of ancient Paris. We don’t recommend that you use this map to plan your site-seeing route, but it is fun to try, nevertheless!

Opposite the sofa and fitting quite well into the apartment’s striking black and ivory color scheme, is a professional Yamaha black gloss piano, available for use by beginners and virtuosi alike. Above the piano is the flat screen television and DVD player to make your downtime more enjoyable with lots of fun Parisien DVDs to watch. The television comes with cable access to over 100 channels, including CNN and BBC World.

The kitchen has been created so that you can do as much or as little cooking as you would like. With a low profile four-burner stove, a full sized oven, separate microwave, and refrigerator with freezer compartment, there is little in the way of culinary creation that can’t be accomplished here. All the necessary utensils, plates, bowls and flatware are at your disposal. As with Paris itself, you are limited only by your imagination!

From the entrance foyer, on the right is a laundry closet, which houses a washer dryer combination as well as a separate drying rack, ironing board and iron.

Opposite the front door is the large bathroom, with toilet, full sized tub and shower with rainfall showerhead. A vanity and medicine cabinet provide space for your toiletries as well as the ample supply of fluffy towels that are provided for your use.

Staying connected will be easy from 'Romantique Montmartre', with free WiFi internet access and unlimited free telephone calls to over 70 countries, including the U.S., Canada and Australia.

The Area Around 'Romantique Montmartre'

This is the Montmartre we know as depicted in the movie 'Amelie Poulain.' In fact, the corner market she visited is just down the street! And even though a few cars do go down this charming street, it's just about as quiet a spot in Paris as you can find.

The imposing Sacré Coeur (La Basilique du Sacré Coeur de Montmartre) is just a short walk away, as is the artists' square, Place du Tertre, the Montmartre Cemetery (Cimetière de Montmartre), Le Moulin Rouge and the only working vineyard in Paris. In the immediate vicinity are numerous cafés, restaurants and quaint drinking spots.

Montmartre is a hill which claims to be the location at which the Jesuit order of priests was founded and the home to many famous artists who had studios there -- such as Salvador Dalí, Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso and Vincent van Gogh. At the end of the 19th-century, the area developed into a center of free-wheeling and decadent entertainment. Here is where was (and still is) the popular cabaret, the Moulin Rouge, and at Le Chat Noir, artists, singers and performers regularly appeared including Yvette Guilbert, Marcelle Lender, Aristide Bruant, La Goulue, Georges Guibourg, Mistinguett, Fréhel, Jane Avril, Damia and others.

Montmartre is an officially designated historic district with limited development allowed in order to maintain its historic and romantic character. A funicular railway, the Funiculaire de Montmartre, operated by RATP, ascends the hill from the south while the 'Montmartrobus' circles the hill.

The Abbeses Métro is just a few minutes walk from the apartment along with several buses. There is no shortage of wonderful neighborhood bistros, markets, boutiques and amenities of all kinds.

This is a very special corner of Paris with a special ambiance all its own that will seduce you, no doubt!

Guestbook comments from the manager
This was a great find. Well located, very easy to get around Paris via the nearby metro station. The room met all our needs and the site manager was able to book us rides to and from he airport.

I originally came to Paris because of work and then fell in love with the city, especially the vibrant arts and cultural scene, and romantic nooks. I'm originally a teacher from Australia but have travelled the world for a long time now. Currently I'm based in Kenya working on education and health issues in Kenya, Rwanda, Eritrea and Somalia. I try to get back to Paris a few times each year. Do have a wonderful adventure in Paris and enjoy your time in my home!!!

Montmartre is artistic, romantic and full of life. It is hard to think of a more interesting and vibrant neighborhood in all of Paris!

ROMANTIQUE MONTMARTE

  • 5 of 5
We spent three nights at the apartment the first of June, 2013. The photos and description of the apartment were good but seeing it in person was even better. We loved the location and enjoyed many of the cafes and shops within easy walking distance. The artists square near the apartment was fun to visit and the view from the church was breathtaking. There was easy access to the metro and all the wonderful sights of Paris. The only problem we had was not planning enough time to stay. We plan a return trip for sure and would highly recommend this property.

BEAUTIFULLY DECORATED AND THOUGHTFULLY EQUIPPED

  • 5 of 5
This apartment was decorated beautifully. It was clean and well-equipped for visitors. The Abbesses neighbourhood was safe and interesting with restaurants, shops, cleaners, hairdressers etc. Transportation (bus and metro) are nearby. Books and instructions about touring in Paris were helpful.
Cleaning and a change of linens every week were included in the rent. The greeter was at the door when I arrived so everything went off flawlessly. I enjoyed the Café Bruant on Des Abbesses. We also went to the Moulin Rouge which was walkable.

Owner's Response: Thank you Joanne for sharing your experience. We had a professional designer help us put in place a mix of both traditional and comtemporary french ideas for the decor. And of course because it is our home, it also needs to be very functional and practical. We look forward to welcoming you again soon. best, Helen Craig (owner)

Lovely apartment in charming neighborhood. Clean and well-equipped and comfortable. Host provided excellent, helpful information on the neighborhood, Paris in general and how to use the apartment amenities. Greeter arrived on time and ensured all was set up perfectly for our stay. Location was close to a metro stop which gave us excellent access to all Paris attractions. We would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone going to Paris and would love to return to it ourselves!

WELL EQUIPPED STUDIO

  • 5 of 5
The two us stayed for a week earlier this month. We have stayed in over 20 flats in Europe and the Sates and this one of the most richly decorated units. Many units have cheap dishes, dull knives, worn off Teflon pans, no microwave oven and poor lighting. I have come to expect that and work around it due to the cost savings and extra space of staying in a flat. Helen’s unit was the opposite, very bright and with a well equipped kitchen. It was also very clean, in both the common areas and the studio. It is very quiet inside with this windows closed. The location is just outside the tourist throngs of the center of the Montmartre area and several blocks to butcher, cheese, veg. shops and the G20 supermarket.
This is my second time staying in this area of Paris (last was one street north). Others included St Germaine, Latin Quarter near the Sorbonne and Montparnasse.
The few blocks around Helen's are my favorite location.

Owner's Response: We’re very pleased that Le Diamant exceeded your expectations Walt. It is a luxury apartment and therefore we try to maintain high standards throughout the apartment for the enjoyment of our guests and at an affordable rate. We also find it a fun and vibrant neighborhood which guests like to return to many times as their base for exploring other parts of Paris. (Helen Craig, owner)
