FRENCH CHARM WITH MODERN AMENITIES IN SPACIOUS MONTMARTRE APARTMENT

18th Arrondissement Montmartre Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, 1 separate WC, 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, an apartment laptop, and phone calls to landlines in more than 50 countries. All bedding, linens, and towels are provided.

Guestbook comments from the owner
I had a great stay in Paris as always, your apartment is just fantastic for what I wanted to do. Well appointed, spacious for Paris and well located to get around. The area is great there it had all what is needed on a daily base. I also felt looked after and your help with the issue of heating was fast. I know on a weekend it is not easy to get some one to fix those things. I will recommend your apartment to our guests who often stay in Paris before or after us.

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

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.

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.

REASONABLE PRICE, CLOSE TO METRO, GOOD KITCHEN

  • 2 of 5
Great modern kitchen, close to the Metro. Ad is misleading, suggests it has a toilet in the on suite plus another WC. There is only 1 very small toilet next to the kitchen. Had to undertake repairs to the toilet door so it was usable. No provision for ironing at the apartment. Very dirty streets and did not feel comfortable going out late at night. Apartment needs some TLC to bring it back to an acceptable standard, would not recommend to friends based on current condition and location.

Owner's Response: Lloyd,
Thank you for your feedback on the positive highlights (reasonable price, modern kitchen, proximity to Metro) of the apartment and suggested improvements, which are appreciated.
Following your suggestion, we have adjusted our ad listing to specify the split bathroom and toilet room; a useful setup that is common in France. Thank you re-securing the old toilet door handle.
Based on your feedback about an iron, we have purchased and provided the apartment with a handheld garment steamer (which avoids risk of damaging guests clothes).
Following your stay, per your suggestion, we spent several days at apartment adding a TLC "refresh" on cleaning, supplies, added a painting and hired a woodworker to strengthen/fortify the clothes washer/dryer closet doors/hinges.
We thank you again for renting our apartment, and believe that these improvements made will benefit future guests!

UNBELIEVABLE LUXURY IN MONTMARTRE

  • 5 of 5
This apartment exceeded our expectations in size, amenities, cleanliness, and convenience. I have stayed in a number of Montmartre apartments, and this has been the best. The American kitchen with 5 burner stove is a rare thing in Paris. The living area is huge, and can accommodate two extra beds (comfortable pull-out couches). The dining table can seat 6+. There are two balconies for looking out at the street. The neighbourhood itself is not stereotypical for Montmartre as the apartment is situated in Barbès on a street populated with hair extension salons. But this is the "real" Paris in all its cosmopolitain flair. We were steps from the Chateau Rouge metro and a minute walk to Barbès-Rochechouart. If you want stereotypical Montmartre, the Sacré-Coeur cathedral is a charming 20 minute walk away, and rue des Abbesses is only 10 minutes away. Don't miss out on this rare property.

Owner's Response: Very pleased to hear you enjoyed our apartment!
The apartment is large for Paris, at 83 square meters (900 square feet) [average in Paris is around 50 square meters], and the living room at 32 square meters is called in France a "double-living" (as you can clearly see it used to be two rooms, prior to a wall being removed.)
The large 5-burner stove... what can I say, when we renovated the kitchen from floor to cieling, we literally built the room around this brand-new large stove that we had purchased even before the kitchen design had begun! (true story) Nice to have room and space to make any cooking easy and fun while in France.

VACANZA CON FAMIGLIA

  • 4 of 5
l'appartamento è molto bello, siamo stati molto bene. Il bagno è alla francese, ma del resto si tratta di Parigi. I bambini si sono trovati bene.
Sotto casa avevamo tutti i servizi necessari, dal supermercato ai negozietti dove trovare ogni sfiziosità. La metropolitana si trova a pochi metri.
Proprietari disponibili e gentili.
Unico neo, ma poco rilevante, è che la strada d'accesso è sporca.

Owner's Response: Federica,

We are happy to hear your family enjoyed your stay and rental of the apartment. Yes, in addition to the 5 supermarkets located within 300m in different directions, there are many charming small local delicacy shops (cheese shops, wine shops, butcher shops, fruit/vegetable shops, and other fine gourmet shops) on rue Ramey, just 100m away.

Thank you for sharing your review! (e in italiano, es molte bene!)

MONTMARTRE APARTMENT

  • 4 of 5
This was a great apartment in the heart of a bustling area of Paris. We love being in walking distance to the Sacre Coeur and several Metro stations, plus grocery stores and cafes. The apartment itself had great space. A negative was that the coffee pot did not match the coffee maker so someone had to literally hold the coffee pot while coffee was being brewed. A minor annoyance was that we had to immediately go out to buy toilet paper since there was only one partial roll left. We love the toilet/handwashing system - very "green." There was a wonderful shower. The floors in the hall were squeaky but well maintained. The owners and caretaker were both courteous and friendly and responsive to any questions.

Owner's Response: Angie,
We are very pleased that your family enjoyed our apartment during your stay in Paris, and thank you for adding this review. At 85 square meters (900 sq ft), the apartment is very large for Paris, and with very high cielings. The short 500m walk up to Sacre Coeur atop the hill of Montmartre gives the best views over Paris, not to mention live music on the steps and the rest of the charms of the hillside community nearby.
Thank you for alerting us to the issue with coffee pot. The previous guest had accidentally broken the original coffee pot, and we obtained the replacement pot from the store of original purchase, however it sounds like they gave us slightly the incorrect model; we have now ordered online the replacement coffee pot according to its exact model code number for delivery May 9.

JUST PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Chateau Montmartre for two weeks with our two young kids. It was everything we hoped it would be. The apartment is beautiful but homey and comfortable. It is extremely well located, close to the Metro, and amazing bakery on the same block (which supplied us with our daily breakfast) and several good grocery stores.

Our family of four never felt cramped and there is enough room for everyone to have space at the end of a long day of togetherness. The kitchen is very well equipped and we saved a fortune on eating in. The apartment was very clean. The shower was particularly delightful.

All our communications with Luke were clear and professional and it made booking very simple.

We had to work while on our trip and the Wi-Fi was excellent - we never had a problem.

If we return to Paris (and I hope we do) we will definitely look to stay here first.

GROSSZÜGIGE UND SEHR SAUBERE UNTERKUNFT

  • 5 of 5
Wer diese Unterkunft bucht, macht nichts falsch.
Die Wohnung ist für französische Verhältnisse sehr großzugig geschnitten und hochwertig eingerichtet.
Metro, Restaurants und Bäckereien sind in direkter Nachbarschaft anzutreffen.
Die wunderschöne Sacre-Coeur erreicht man zu Fuß in 10 Minuten und auch alle anderen Sehenswürdigkeiten sind mit der Metro genial einfach und schnell zu erreichen.
Der Kontakt mit dem Vermieter war schnell und sehr freundlich und die Abwicklung absolut problemlos.
SEHR ZU EMPFEHLEN !!!
