Overview

About the property

1BR + Convertible bed, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

The premises offers a charming experience for a stay in Montmartre the old parisian village.

It sleeps 4. Located at the third floor, it is very bright and has many large windows (four in total). Our guests enjoy it very much.

There is a living room with 2 large windows, an open kitchen, one bedroom, and a bathroom.

The furniture is a mix of antique wooden French furniture and pictures, and modern pieces as the bed, comfortable convertible sofa and closet.

The living room has a lounging and a dining space. It offers a comfortable sofa, dining table and design chairs, a flat screen television and 2 windows with view over the trees.

The sofa can be converted into a comfortable double bed in the evening.

The kitchen is open on the living room, fully equipped and offers a bar table perfect for those quick on-the-move meals or to savor a glass of wine wine.

To the left of the living area is the bedroom. It offers a comfortable queensize bed, with nice bedside tables, a wardrobe and a writing desk.

The tiled bathroom offers a sink, a walk in shower and a toilet. It is clear and sunny in afternoon thanks to a large size window.

The premises have been largely renovated in 2012 and 2017 after a bad review. We listened to the enhancements proposed. Lot of work and improvement was done and are guests are know back to 5 star reviews.

The building is central in the Old Montmartre village. Really one of the best place. The location is close to "Le Mur des je t'aime" that one can see on the map. All the rooms enjoy nice light. The area is very safe : .The subway station very near and the Sacre Coeur Church a few hundred yards. Most interesting places in Paris may be reached in 15mn.

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

Just a point, important to us. We decided to rent our residence when our son does not need to stay in. We enjoy meeting foreign people and believe this is a way to meet nice people as well as getting some return on the apartment. We want people to enjoy their stay as much as possible.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2000

Why The Owner chose Grandes-Carrières

We live in Montmartre since 1992 and will never leave the area. Montmartre is really a village. One easily meets people around here. Not like in a big city.

What makes this apartment unique

We feel on holidays everyday. Light, charm, nice people around, and No cars, No stress.

Guestbook comments from the owner

For anyone seeking an authentic Paris lifestyle experience, the Apartment "DOUIS" is perfect! The building is older-and has a spiral staircase. This is very typical of older buildings, and adds to the experience of the apartment. Right outside of the apartment is a lively little square that is full of life and energy, but not overly touristy. There is a cafe and a bar down the street, which provides background sounds during the day, but at night with the windows closed the apartment becomes a refuge of quiet. The unit iself is just as pictured-small bathroom and kitchen, living area and bedroom. Having a washer and dryer was nice-operates very differently that American units, but the instructions are clear and posted on the front door (inside the unit.) Overall, given the location, price, and amenities--I'd rent this unit again. The manager is highly professional and renting the unit was very smooth. Even if you do not rent this unit, rent from the manager-outstanding!

Great Location

  • 2 of 5

Loved the location however the accommodation was not what we expected. The place needs updating and a good cleaning. We ran out of hot water every morning even though there were only two of us. The shower stall is extremely small so if you are above average size ~ beware. The place was dark and cold. Limited lighting was available. Kitchen seemed well stocked however we did not use it since we found the place depressing. Bed was comfortable. Bring your own hand soap. Would love to stay in the area again because we enjoyed staying in a community with the locals. Lock box was broken- opening and closing the box was challenging. Noise was not a problem once we closed the windows. Many restaurants and pubs close by. Easy to walk to attraction sights

Clean, three flights of steps, this must be what it is like to live in an apartment in Montmartre!

  • 4 of 5

We loved experiencing Montmartre. Staying in the apartment Douis felt as if we were living there rather than being tourists in Paris. There is night life outside the windows as songs and conversations drift up through open windows and pigeons to wake you in the morning. Closing them shuts out the sounds. The view of treetops provided a wonderful place for dreaming of the next day's exploration. If this is what you are looking for, this is the place for you!

Best location in Paris!

  • 5 of 5

We are back home and just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our stay at the apartment. It was refurbished recently, including a brand new sofa bed, and very comfortable. I miss it already. The location has to be the best in Paris! The charming square outside the window with the happy sounds of musicians was just heavenly. We will tell all our friends about Apartment Douis. Thanks for everything.

Beautiful setting in the heart of lively Montmartre!

  • 5 of 5

I loved my stay on the leafy green quad, super convenient to all my favorite Montmartre cafes! The apartment is roomy and bright with many wonderful large French windows. Refurbished wooden floors add a special charm and there is plenty of storage space in the bedroom and kitchenette. A perfect place from which to enjoy Paris - only a 5 minute walk to the Metro! InBeauParis is a great organization - the staff are always kind and helpful!

Cozy apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay, the owner hospitality, the cozy apartment and neighborhood. It is an enjoyable area, rich with music and art! We have already recommended it to a few friends.

The available amenities made our stay comfortable. It was a pleasure staying in the apartment while we were in this beautiful city.

The owner said the place was recently refurnished and we found all was nice and clean, starting with the comfortable sofa bed in living room that is super easy to maneuver. The bed was comfortable. The sheets were fresh. The mix of the contemporary feel with the antique pieces of furniture added to charm of the apartment.

We couldn't have picked a better apartment location for our first family trip to Europe!

We made it back to NYC safely and miss Paris already, Montmartre in particular.

Hope to return to Paris in the future.
