Overview

About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

One cannot dream of a better location in Montmartre (up to 5 guests).

This loft/apt is perfectly located. It lies in the living heart of Montmartre, the “Abbesses” district. It stays 50 footsteps from the place des abbesses, where the subway, and a charming & lively square are located. The building stays in a small street next to the square. The loft is bright, thanks to its large skylight and 2 windows.

The loft was designed by an Award winner designer

The apartment was design by a French architect, now living in Australia.

This loft owner is an artist of rare talent : a portraitist.

The loft belongs to an Australian friend of us, a portraitist. In this apartment, among many other paints, Ralph Heimans painted the first official portrait of Princess Mary of Denmark. It received widespread critical acclaim in Danish, European and Australian Media.

Transportation is easy. Most interesting Paris spots may be reached in 15 minutes.

As a bonus, Phone calls to land lines in France, and to US, Canada and australia are generaly free. It is also true for more than 50 countries. More over, calls to cell phones towards specific countries (often US & Canada) may also be free. Ask us for detail as it may vary with time and policies of operators.

About The Owner

Owner used to live in this apartment. He now leaves abroad and comes back for vacations a few weeks per year.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 1999

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

Had a great day time exploring Montmartre neighbourhoods and using nearby Metro stations to venture into many parts of Paris. Quiet, comfortable and we enjoyed staying at this property immensely.

Flat with Character

  • 4 of 5

This was a last minute booking and I appreciated the prompt response and especially the self-serve check-in. Thank you! We were two mums with 4 children (5, 4, 3, and 9 months).

The flat has tons of character with its stone wall (which I couldn't figure out if they were actually original or not - but cool none-the-less). The flat is not exactly as the photos, they have covered the stones on one wall and added a door to the hallway. I actually appreciated the door quite a bit as it cut down on noise coming from the building entrance. I personally loved the concrete flooring but my niece, who has two small children, found it too hard and cold - each to their own I suppose. :-) The steps down to the kitchen were slightly treacherous (only 2 steps), as they are not completely visible (no distinct colour change or anything else to indicate stairs), and with one sharp corner, and one or two small children actually did fall down them sadly. As an adult, I didn't mind them and again, enjoyed the added character, but this may not be the best location for those with new crawlers.

The sitting room with the sofa-bed makes a nice little private space, however - keep in mind that there is a truly lovely sky-light which brightens up the room considerably as the sun rises. In the summer time, that may mean that young ones are waking, literally, with the sun. :-/ Maybe not the best room for those nursing a hang-over either. ;-)

As others suggested, there was noise from the street but that was easily resolved by using the in-home speaker to attach our phones to, with white noise on it. When the white noise was on, we did not hear a thing.

The location of the flat really cannot be beat. It is really only a few steps to the funicular up to Sacre Coeur (we took the steps - even my 4 and 5 yr olds). There are restaurants and bakeries of many options within a 10 minute walk. There are bus stops quite close, the metro, and even the hop-on hop-off busses. We would definitely stay in this location again.

We did have some rather minor issues that were resolved as best as possible when contacting our host. We were able to stay a bit past check-out which was really appreciated. the children were able to have a bit of quiet time before we headed off to the airport.

Thank you again for everything!

Wonderful Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this property in early January 2017. It was great! The apartment is in the most charming area. It is steps away from a Metro station and a short walk to other stations. One really great thing about the apt is that it is right down the street from the beautiful Sacre Coeur church! Wonderful restaurants, bakeries, and shops are all right in the neighborhood. The apartment is perfect. There were 5 of us staying there and it was fine. The apartment was very clean and well taken care of. It even had a washing machine and dryer! That was a great thing! The apartment is on the ground level and right by the entrance to the building. So easy to go in and out! We felt very safe in this neighborhood. We would walk around in the evening and always felt safe. I highly recommend this property. Such wonderful memories made while we were there! I can't wait to visit again and we will definitely stay in this same apartment.

Great space, great location

The apartment was perfect. Comfortable for 2 or 3 people, so close to the Metro and fabulous neighborhood. There was a festival the day we arrived and the whole area was abuzz. Easy walk to Sacre Coeur, Moulin Rouge and many fabulous cafes. Can't go wrong with this rental.

Comfortable, clean and conveniently located

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at La Vieuville. The apartment was clean and comfortable. As well as conveniently located. The Montmartre area of the city is bustling with shopping, dining, and history. Jean-Noel was very easy to work with and an effortless exchange for checking in and out of the apartment. We would highly recommend.
