Overview

18th Arrondissement Montmartre Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom (WC in separate room), sleeps 7

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, providing for a stunning view of the entire city.

In the village of Montmarte, there are numerous cafés, boutiques, restaurants, renowned pâtisseries and chocolate shops.

The apartment is located on the French second (American third) floor of a walk-up building. Three useful metro lines (#2, 4, and 12) For arrivals from the Eurostar, Gare du Nord is a ten minute metro ride to the apartment.

Additional amenities include wifi (now with fiber-optic speed) and phone calls to landlines in more than 50 countries. All bedding, linens, and towels are provided.

About Luke W.

We are two Americans that have lived in many places around the world, and were luckily enough to put down roots in Paris. We were saddened to temporarily leave Paris on a work-related relocation, but we are thrilled to have the opportunity to share the home we love with fellow Francophiles.

Luke W. purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Luke W. chose 18th Arrondissement Montmartre

After an exhaustive property search in the city we love (honestly over 40 apartments visited), we were thrilled to become the owners of our own little 'Château' apartment. From the first step on the original wooden floors of Château Montmartre, we were enamoured with the charm and detail that could only be found in such an authentic place. The atmosphere transported us everyday from the hustle of the city life below, to the decadent days of French gilded mirrors and marble fireplaces.

What makes this apartment unique

We decided to take on the challenge of self-managing a few updates to allow for a comfortable lifestyle. With an expanded, modern kitchen, and a spa-inspired bathroom, we believe the apartment offers the best of both worlds.

Beautiful and well-appointed home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My son and I were visiting Paris recently and wanted to be able explore the Montmartre area and be near Metro lines and Gare du Nord. Luke and Jennifer's apartment fit the bill on all accounts, and some!

The photos we saw on the VRBO site attracted us to the Chateau in the first place but in person it is even more palatial! Beautiful decoration and furnishings, clean and spacious, light and elegant, plus a modern fully-equipped kitchen and and a new bathroom with an amazing rain shower that is just the ticket after a long day walking or traveling. The toilet has an innovative washbasin that is incorporated into the top of the tank, and the water used for handwashing is part of the flushing process!

Caroline, the apartment manager, met us as scheduled to let us in and gave us the keys and all the details we needed about the apartment and local area. She was very knowledgeable and gave us lots of tips, and was kind enough to offer to be an emergency contact if my son returns to attend university in Paris. Additionally we were welcomed with a delicious bottle of Brut from the Loire Valley, and we found plenty of restaurants to choose from nearby, as well as boulangeries, patisseries, pharmacies and supermarkets for all our needs.

Sacre Coeur is five minutes walk away, and the Chateau Rouge Metro station is literally just across the Boulevard Barbes from the apartment, and can whisk you to anywhere you need to go in Paris, and from there the Gare du Nord is only two stops away, if you feel like walking there it is only about 10 minutes on foot! Or a taxi ride is five minutes and around 5 to 8 euros.

We will be sure to stay at the Chateau Montmartre whenever we return to Paris, and cannot recommend it highly enough. We were very sad to leave, it is our Paris home away from home!

Chic, Classic Parisian Apartment

  • 5 of 5

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!

Owner's Response: Hi Kimberley, 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! Luke

Hermoso departamento, completo y muy bien ubicado.

  • 5 of 5

Nos llevamos un recuerdo hermosos del lugar, mucho mejor que estar en un hotel 5 estrellas. Está equipado con todos los detalles. Todo anda, está limpio y es muy cómodo. La cocina es increíble, perfecta, la ducha un placer. Las camas super cómodas, el living hermoso. La decoración es de muy buen gusto, todo lindo. Volvería al mismo lugar y desde ya se lo recomendaré a todos los que viajen a París. Sus dueños son muy cálidos y amables y te reciben con una botella de champagne, increíble!!!! La operación fué muy fácil de realizar sin ningún inconveniente, nos recibió Caroline que nos explicó como funcionaba todo y estuvo atenta a nuestras consultas durante nuestra estadía. Estamos muy agradecidos!

A Jolly/Murphy adventure 2014

  • 4 of 5

A lovely place to stay! A warm welcome on arrival, and a very convenient situation for the metro. Just a very short amble up to the sacre coeur, the montmatre cafes, quirky little shops and bustling artist square too.

The boys loved their pain au chocolates for breakfast from the local bakery and I was very impressed with the gluten free range available in the supermarket just down the main street!

The flat was spotless and warm, the block was quiet and the other residents we bumped into were friendly. We had everything we could need and the kitchen was very well stocked and maintained (thank goodness for dishwashers!)

The beds were comfortable and the shower room was very stylish. The shower had great water pressure which helped ease off the aches from all the walking!

With 3 young boys, it was a blessing indeed to have a washing machine and a dryer to hand too!

We spent 2 days in Paris and 2 days in Disneyland. The metro links to the train lines for the airport and the parks from the flat were great, with hardly any waiting, they were clean and frequent.

All in all a great place to stay. I've already recommended it to family thinking of travelling to Paris next year!

By the way, for gluten free cafes, take a trip to Biosphere and Noglu. They won't disappoint!

Owner's Response: Sarah, We are delighted to have such a glowing review and hear of these different positive aspects of your stay at our apartment. The location beside the hill of Montmartre, with only 500 meters (2.5 blocks) walk to the hillside staircase to Sacre Coeur basilica atop Montmartre and the highest point in Paris, is one of the regular charms enjoyed by everyone. And the Metro station just down the street, while often very busy, does provide great direct links 2 stops away to the Gare du Nord train station (for train to airport and Eurostar to London/Brussels/Amsterdam) and only 20min direct to Notre Dame, Latin Quarter and St Germain des Pres neighborhoods along the river Seine. Happy to hear you found the flat clean and spotless (I will pass on this thanks to our cleaner!) and that you found the dishwasher, clothes washer and clothes dryer very convenient to the comfort and enjoyment of your stay with your 3 young boys. Also pleased you enjoyed the style of the shower room, with oversized rain-shower and stone walls, as this room and the kitchen were our two big renovation projects, in which we invested many thoughtful hours and trips to bizarre locations outside Paris to find the right style and materials. We would look forward to welcoming your family and friends, and thank you to your family for taking such great care of our flat! Kind Regards, Luke

Parigi dall'alto di Montmartre

  • 5 of 5

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.

Ideaal verblijf voor een leuk lang w-e in Parijs

  • 5 of 5

Zeer goed uitgerust appartement, quasi alle courant gebruikte huishoudtoestellen zijn aanwezig en werken naar behoren.

Zeer ruim voor 6 personen, en alles is voorzien tot 8 personen. Wel rekening houden dat er slechts 1 badkamer, en 1 afzonderlijk toilet is.

De trappenhal is best OK, en passage daar is niet storend voor de bewoners.

De buurt is multi-cultureel (zoals er wel meerdere wijken in grootsteden zijn), maar niks speciaal en werd door ons zeker niet als negatief ervaren.

Trouwens binnen is er geen hinder van de soms levendige buurt, en vanaf het terras kan je er veel van opsteken.

De ligging is prima, op 1' van metro lijn 4, op 10' wandelen van Gare du Nord (en daar ook goede parking voor auto)

Flexibele check-in (lekker ;-) en check-out.

Ook de terugbetaling van de borg was snel en correct.

Kortom ons verblijfplaats was GEWELDIG.

Thanks Luke & Jennifer & appartmentmanager
