Place Adolphe Max is located in the North West area of Paris, South of the Moulin Rouge landmark, between Metro Clichy and Blanche in the 9th arrondissement. It is walking distance to the Montmartre Sacre Coeur. Maps show it as a green spot because of the Square Hector Berlioz. The apartment's balconies and shutters open onto the square overlooking the trees. A quiet haven in the most Parisian of neighborhoods: Montmartre and Pigalle (named after Jean-Baptiste Pigalle, a 19th century painter and sculptor).
This truly special full floor condominium of 1450 square foot is airy, bright, private, and conveniently located. It is four flights up with elevator.

There is a concierge in the building and it is situated on a quiet residential block.

The front part has hardwood floors in the dining room, living room, and two bedrooms which all face the square. The flat sleeps four (4) people very comfortably and a twin bed will accommodate an extra person. It is ideal for a couple with two children or two couples.
This neighborhood is known for its artists hangouts. You will still find numerous ateliers turned museums such as the Gustave Moreau Museum and the Museum of Romantic Life.
It's will stay a family home for generations even if I am a San Franciscan at heart.
Location, location, location. Can't ask for more. Close to all public transports. Being only 1/2 block away walking distance from metro, buses and taxis but a world away from the Paris hustle and bustle.
