Hello from Ralph & Karen!

We own, operate, and spoil this 2-bedroom apartment, Le Trésor de Montmartre, above the cobblestone streets of Paris’s iconic Montmarte neighborhood. After months and months spent prepping and perfecting this 19th century apartment, nothing makes us happier than the many positive reviews we get from our guests.

Parisian touches inside include designer furnishings, watercolour hues, and the warm glow of chandeliers. Throw open the shuttered windows and listen to the quiet in this tucked-away part of the city—the perfect refuge after a day of “touristing.”

Call us for more details. +1 832 567 7530 [-7h from Paris]

Set in the iconic Montmartre neighborhood of central Paris. Here cobblestone streets and rich history meet, and artists such as, Van Gogh, Picasso, Monet, Dali, and Toulouse-Lautrec practiced their art. Montmartre was the centre of free-wheeling and decadent entertainment at the turn of the 20th century. No doubt you’ve heard of the era’s popular cabarets including the Moulin Rouge, Le Chat Noir, and Lapin Agile.

Now, locals stroll with fresh groceries and duck into their favorite cafes. Yet the neighborhood retains its artistic vibe, and you can still enjoy five-star dining or take in a show at the local cabaret. And, in the midst of this historic backdrop, you’ll find our lovely vacation rental, Le Trésor de Montmartre, which features classical French architecture for a seamless Parisian experience.

Le Trésor de Montmartre is a beauty created from muted, watercolor-inspired hues, natural light, lovely cross-breezes in summertime, and the warm glow of chandeliers. Authentic crown molding, French doors, and two original, ceramic ornamental fireplaces preserve the apartment’s vintage 19th century charm, while upgrades like a sleek new kitchen, elegant luxury bathroom, and even an office space with a printer, free WiFi, free long distance phone calls remind you of our modern day’s advantages*. We even have an elevator, which makes hauling your luggage and daily groceries upstairs a breeze!

The open living area invites you to gather with your family for an unhurried conversation on plush furniture near floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking Montmartre, or at the glass dining table with Phillip Starck-designed seating for four. An adjacent kitchen provides a four-burner flat top stove, a refrigerator, and a microwave/oven combination set against a sleek tile backsplash.

Through a set of shaded French doors, access the office space, which also doubles as an extra bedroom, thanks to the sofa that converts to a queen-sized bed (its comfort will be a pleasant surprise!). There is a convenient desk for your laptop, should you need to work [hope not!!] or browse the 'net.

A master bedroom, also entered through shaded French doors, calls to you at the end of the day. The queen-sized bed is fitted with supremely soft sheets and a pile of downy pillows. A large window opens to the quiet, cobblestone street and a traditional Montmartre stairway, made famous by several French films set here. When you want to block out the outside world for a bit—after a long flight, or during bright summer nights maybe—heavy curtains over the windows make all the difference.

Wait until you see the bathroom, which is located off the living room. It’s quite large by Parisian standards, luxurious, and outfitted with all the best amenities—from a rainfall showerhead, to a deep soaker tub, to a vanity with plenty of space for all of your toiletries. Sink into a long, hot bath with a glass of wine at hand and a collection of our ultra-plush towels warming in the heated towel rack.

Located on a quiet side street, Le Trésor de Montmartre is just a two-minute walk from the cafes, restaurants, grocers, wine shops, cheese shops, chocolate shops, and butchers that together create that feeling—the one that belongs to Paris alone. Begin your morning with coffee and croissants from the boulangerie down the street. Later enjoy a quiet dinner party with your friends as you sip wine and sample cheese. For more far-flung exploring, the metro or bus are just a few minutes away by foot.

Le Trésor de Montmartre is a true gem in central Paris.

Don’t miss out—contact us today to reserve your dates!

About Ralph & Karen Moorhouse

After visiting Paris many times, we knew we wanted to spend a lot more time in this amazing city. After many kilometers walking around the city, we found this apartment in 2007 and after an extensive renovation we have a 'home' that we like to share.

Ralph & Karen Moorhouse purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Ralph & Karen Moorhouse chose 18th Arrondissement Montmartre

One week, two weeks, or even a year are not enough time to really get to know Paris. You can explore forever and always find something fascinating and enjoyable.

Guests tell us time and time again how much they enjoy the neighborhood with its multitude of restaurants, bistros, food stores all within 5 minutes walk. Perhaps mostly they enjoy the 'feel' of being a 'local', yest being close to the main touristic attractions of Paris and beyond

What makes this apartment unique

We will help make your trip easy and special. Let us know your special needs and interests, we are here to share our love of Paris with you.

Superior in all ways to any Hotel in Paris

  • 5 of 5

With an over abundance of hotels and rental accommodations available in Paris, I finally made a decision on Le Tresor de Montmartre. I have never stayed in a vacation rental before and was apprehensive. On the recommendation of my sister who is doctor and only stays in vacation rentals while in Europe, I decided to try it. The experience was so outstanding I booked my next vacation rental for my next stop which was Florence. Paris is a walking city and Montmartre is a 20 minute walk to

anywhere you want to go. The apartment was bright, clean and spacious with big windows that opened up. Bathroom had a Hugh soaker tub and large window and was very bright. Although a representative let me in, the owner who was 5000 miles away was the biggest selling feature. Ralph was a wealth of information by text or email with minutes and provided the best customer service I have every encountered in 51 years. My mission was accomplished as I felt like a local in Paris. Thank you sincerely Ralph, you’re a diamond in the rough. I highly recommend this place.

Owner's Response: Leslie; Thank you for a great and flattering review. I really enjoy working closely with guests to make sure they have a very enjoyable stay at our apartment, neighborhood and the city. It’s sometimes easy to forgot that for many guests this is the 1st time in Paris and even Montmartre so we make sure they have all the info they might need to experience Montmartre [and Paris] as if it were home. Glad you mentioned that Paris is a walking city and it actually is as quick or quicker to walk to many of the attractions as it is to take the metro. I do admire that you walked back fromm Versailles but will not necessarily suggest that as an alternative to the train !!! . Thanks again – hope you had a great time in Florence and come back to see us in Paris or Nice> R&K

Lovely apartment, convenient location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely one week stay at Le Tresor de Montmartre. The apartment was exactly as described, very comfortable for three adults in a quiet and convenient location, clean and well maintained. It had everything we needed included WiFi, laundry, kitchen appliances, wireless printer and a bevy of guide books, maps, and a personal manual of the owner's favorite area restaurants and shops. We even entertained a few friends for dinner one night and had plenty of plates, wine glasses, serving dishes, etc.

The owner, Ralph, was very helpful and provided a lot of useful information prior to the trip. When we arrived we were greeted and given a tour of the apartment. The neighborhood is very residential, but walking distance to some tourist sights and close to bus and metro stops. Everyone was very friendly and helpful.

I would definitely recommend this property to a friend or relative.

What an excellent vacation spot!!!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Paris and found Le Trésor de Montmartre to be a wonderful place. The neighborhood is perfect, the local cafes, restaurants and shops are located close to the property (the wine and cheese shop and local market were visited every day). Evening walks up to Sacre Coeur were a nice bonus as well. Ralph and Karen are also excellent hosts and I would highly recommend this location to anyone. Plan on an Uber, or Metro ride to the city center as Montmartre is in northern neighborhood! Not a big deal, and being north was a bit more quiet. Thanks again for everything!

Owner's Response: Ron: Sounds like you lived like a Parisian - wine, cheese and local market every day - isn't it great to have such shops so close - did you miss the chocolate shop around the corner?. As you mention, its nice to be a little away from the hustle and bustle but yet be close via the metro or Uber. Uber is our recommended way to get to the airport or train station, otherwise the metro [or bus] is so convenient to get around town. We really enjoyed working with you. Thanks again and hope to see you again.

Cosy and romantic

  • 5 of 5

A great place to stay in Paris. This was our 4th stay in Paris, and we were concerned about staying out in Montmartre, but we found it to be very central and easy to get around the whole city, by foot or subway. The apt. itself is clean and very nicely decorated. The details, and attention to small things did not go unnoticed. We are recommending it to some friends who will be taking their honeymoon in Paris. That says it all! Thank you!

Owner's Response: Tammy: appreciate your kind comments and referral. Many may hestitate about staying in Montmartre rather than in the Marais or St Germaine, but as you discovered, it is easy to access the main tourist sites and best of all, you have a fabulous neighborhood to return to. with lots a of great restaurants and foodshops but without hoards of tourists. Hope to see you again. Thanks - R&K

Memorable

  • 5 of 5

A very quiet street, not far from the Metro, with many good choices nearby for lunch, dinner, or shopping. Owners and agents were extremely responsive and supportive. The apartment is handsome and up to date, felt like France, with a modern kitchen and bath, comfortable bed, gadgets, and generous landline use policy. Housekeeping is up to snuff. Financial details were handled without any hassle.

Owner's Response: John – thanks for your kind feedback and glad you enjoyed your stay. Sounds like you now know why we love this neighborhood – so many great eating and watering holes within a short walk yet only a short metro ride to the sights. We enjoy making your stay as hassle-free as possible and communication is our big focus. You were the 1st to receive our free early check-in and pastries/coffee offer and I believe it hit the spot after a long overnight trip! Hope we can ‘see’ you again in Paris or Nice. Best wishes to you all from R&K

Owner's Response: Byron: Glad you had a good visit, enjoyed our apartment and our location. We've had quite a bit of feedback and guest interaction recently, that has made us quite 'homesick' so we will have to spend some time there soon. We have a few local eateries and jazz cluds to check out! Hope your onward travels went well and you think of us again when you go to Paris or Nice - thanks for a nice review.. R&K

Montmartre: The Soul of Paris: After more than two decades of exploring Paris and its diverse arrondissements, we concluded that nowhere in Paris is more enthralling, and quintessentially Parisian, than La Butte de Montmartre. Guests at our apartment, Le Tresor de Montmartre, agree: whimsical, beautiful Montmartre feels almost untouched by modern influence. It's as if the world stopped turning during France’s Belle Époque. In fact, some of our guests are so drawn to Montmartre’s time-capsule qualities, they end up spending their whole trip in just this one arrondissement.

Picture cobblestone streets, flowering Bougainvillea vines, window shutters painted vibrant colors, and the white domes of the Sacré Coeur presiding over it all. Climb the steps to the Sacré Coeur, take a few more steps into the belly of the dome, and be presented with an unbeatable panorama of Paris:

A creative, bohemian heart beats here, and has for centuries. Montmartre is where Picasso, Monet, Dali, van Gogh and other modernists created the masterpieces that changed art forever, and where the Moulin Rouge introduced its raucous cabaret in 1889.

Today, artists gather at the many cafés and boulangeries that perfume the air with delicate pastries and loaves of crusty bread. At the square, Place du Tertre, artists set up their easels and paint portraiture for tourists in the open air.

Meanwhile, at the base of the hill, Moulin Rouge’s dancers still Cancan dance underneath an iconic neon-lit windmill.

Our apartment, Le Trésor de Montmartre, is walkable to these and many more of Montmartre’s highlights. On foot, we’re 10 minutes to Sacré Coeur, 10-15 minutes to the Moulin Rouge, and 5 minutes to the metro—an easy, cost-effective way to see all of Paris. We're also 2 minutes from the city bus. We’re located below the Place du Tertre (Montmartre’s square), and we’re reachable on foot by the staircases of the Rue des Saules, the funicular at Abbess, or the small train in Montmartre.

The nearest metro is Lamarck/Caulaincourt (Line 12). This metro is only 8 stops from the Concorde station—15 minutes, no changes needed—which is the station for the Louvre, Musee D'Orsay, Champs Elysee, the Eiffel Tower, and the Bateaux Mouches on the Seine.

EARLY ARRIVAL? Usually we can accomodate early arrivals and will provide coffee and pastries, if you wish - no charge, just tell us!!!
