About the property

2 bedrooms, 2 sleeper-sofas, 1 bathroom (WC in separate room), 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 (now with fiber-optic speed) and phone calls to landlines in more than 50 countries. All bedding, linens, and towels are provided.

About Luke

We are two Americans that have lived in many places around the world, and were luckily enough to put down roots in Paris.

Luke purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Luke chose 18th Arrondissement Montmartre

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful stay at the apartment . We owe you for one drinking glass which was accidentally dropped! Please make a note of it.

Beautiful and spacious apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this lovely apartment. It has a "classic French feel," and I fell in love with the ceilings, you'll see what I mean when you wake up in the morning. The apartment had plenty of room, and I was very impressed with the spacious closet. It was also very convenient to have use of the washer and dryer so we could launder our clothing while we were there for two weeks. The beds were comfortable, and we enjoyed cooking several meals in the kitchen. It was very handy that there was a metro stop right around the corner as well. After a long day of walking the city and enjoying the beauty, it was nice to come home to this beautiful apartment. At the end of our trip, the manager Caroline was kind enough to arrange a ride for us to get back to the airport with all of our luggage..

Owner's Response: Deborah, We are happy to hear you enjoyed the apartment and its "classic French feel", we fell in love with the apartment, and made it our home, for the same reason. Original parquet floors, crown molding ceilings, and four marble fireplaces (non-functioning). Spacious bedrooms, lots of natural light through tall windows, and a large living room (formerly two rooms, many many years ago). Pleased that the beds were comfortable and the kitchen enjoyable for cooking during your trip. We appreciate your family taking such great care of the apartment during your stay. Your friends/family are always most welcome! Luke

Very nice apartment with the ambiance of a 19th century building!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the living space and overall charm! The kitchen was up to date and the shower was great. We would have liked the bath to be more centrally located, but it worked. Bring your own salt and pepper! Luke was a great host and provided lots of information!!

Pretty but super loud

  • 3 of 5

The apartment was nice, but overall the location was not my favorite of Paris and was super loud at night. Also, the place had no fans which kept the apartment hot and the internet was down during our stay. Luke was very nice when he talked to us on the phone, but we wished the problem could have been resolved, because it made our stay a little bit more difficult to navigate without internet. Overall, the place was not bad, but there were a few things we didn't enjoy.

Owner's Response: Kathy, Thank you for taking great care of the apartment during your rental. Our apologies for the disruption of internet service during your stay and that our efforts together were not immediately successful; a technician determined a hardware problem in the WiFi/router, and replaced the unit, so WiFi internet has been restored and is now functioning. The apartment has 2 portable fans for use in the bedrooms during the warmest weeks of summer. Luke

Perfect place to stay in Paris

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four (two teenagers) and the apartment was just perfect for our time in Paris. Lots of space for everyone, well equipped and in a great location. The surrounding area is full of great restaurants, cafes and bars. Convenient to the Metro (3 stops within a 10 minute walk) which makes reaching all the sites in Paris super easy. Several large Carrefour supermarkets and other shops all around as well. Great communication with the Luke the owner. Can't imagine we could have done better accommodation wise in Paris. Thanks so much!
