Overview

Clignancourt Apartment Rental Photos and Description

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.

Charming French Flat

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is spacious and just oozes old French charm. The neighborhood at first glance seems worrisome but we never felt unsafe and the shop owners were so kind. They would even let us know when they were going home for the night so we could find parking!

Owner's Response: We are happy to hear you enjoyed the historical French charm of our apartment; we fell in love with it ourselves, as increasingly rare to find an apartment retaining so many of the "charms a l'ancien" (as the French say, historical charms). Glad to hear the shopkeepers were helpful with parking, parking never easy to find in Paris! Thank you for taking such great care of the apartment during your stay.

Beautiful apartment in the heart of Montmartre

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was exactly as described. Beautiful, large and right in heart of Monmartre. By the second day the apartment felt like our home in Paris. Even though the metro station by the apartment is closed for refurbishment, we had 3 other stations just a short walk away to choose from. I appreciated all of the communication and information Luke provided. We were greeted by Caroline at the apartment and she made us feel welcome right away. She also arranged for a car to pick us up for our return flight back to the States. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your beautiful apartment. We hope to return to Paris soon.

Parisian charm at its best!

  • 5 of 5

Having never been in Paris before we were comforted by the fact that Luke's attention to detail in the preparations made for a very smooth transition from the airport to setting up our 6 days in Paris. He was well supported by Caroline who met us on arrival and familiarised us with the set up at 'Chateau Montmartre'. The bottle of Champagne on arrival was a sweet touch from Luke and Jennifer.

As a family it was great to have space to enjoy the apartment and spread out after spending the day visiting the sites of Paris.

We enjoyed the great location with restaurants close by including a comprehensive supermarket just a block away. The Sacré-Cœur was just minutes away providing breathtaking views of Paris all the way to the Eiffel Tower.

Through our brief visit Luke kept in contact, ensuring our stay was going well and Caroline helped sort our transport back to Charles De Gaulle which was a blessing. Great location and an enjoyable stay in Paris.

Owner's Response: Craig, We are so happy to hear that you found the apartment both spacious, comfortable and the location near popular Sacre Coeur / Montmartre pragmatic for your stay. The view from atop the nearby hill, Paris's highest point, is especially great at sunset when the musicians and crowds are about. Appreciate that you also found the supportive help from us all making for a functionally smooth booking process and stay. Thank you to your family for taking such good care of our apartment! Luke

Clean, spacious, elegant and well equipped

  • 4 of 5

As described, this was an elegant, spacious and well equipped apartment. All beds were comfortable and the support from Luke and Caroline could not be bettered. At pavement level this area is the centre for wigs, hairdressing etc for predominantly the African and West Indian community hence the cosmopolitan feel. However, like other reviewers, we felt entirely safe at all times. We had good meal experiences at The Blue ( en route to the Sacre Coeur ) and at Le Gabin nearby. Because of recent problems we avoided the metro and used buses. Using rapt fr on the net it was extremely easy to find bus routes. We were a family of 2 adults with 3 children and we all had a great 5 day break. Highly recommended for accommodation and location.

Owner's Response: David, We are so happy to hear that your family enjoyed our apartment as elegant, spacious and well equipped, and we thank you for taking such good care of the apartment during your stay. Yes, use of ratp fr on the net is an easy tool for use of planning your public transit on Metro or Bus around Paris; everyone in Paris uses it frequently, whenever heading to a new place, as the the multitude of public transport links in Paris can often produce new and surprising routes. On restaurants, yes, we like Le Gabin also, and we will have to try The Blue, that is new to us. Kind Regards, Luke

The RainShower is awesome!

  • 4 of 5

Everything was just as we expected from reviewing the site and reading the visitors reviews. The kitchen was well organized and clean. The bedrooms were comfortable, we all had good nights sleep, although the extra bedroom was very warm throughout the night, even with the windows ajar. The dining area and living room was also user friendly and comfortable. Our stay was good, the only drawbacks were the single toilet and the shower room located off the master bedroom. You'll have to walk through the master bedroom to get to the shower. The toilet room is centrally located. It worked out fine because we were there with our adult daughter. If you are thinking of staying here with others whom you're not comfortable sharing everything with it would be different. The location of the apartment wasn't a surprise to us. I read the reviews and gathered it was located in an area that is going through gentrification. That said, we were completely safe our entire stay. It is conveniently located very close to the chateau rue stop. We found the metro system amazingly convenient. Luke kept in contact with us and Caroline greeted us at the door upon arrival giving us tips and directions for the neighborhood. I would say the cleaning fee is a little steep. We arrived at 8:00 and got charged extra, this was all in the fine print-just hadn't realized it. All said, it was an amazing stay in Paris! We absolutely loved the city and to come home to this apartment every night was a plus. Thanks Luke

Owner's Response: Dora, We are happy to hear you found the apartment as expected, including enjoyment of the clean kitchen, comfortable bedrooms, and user-friendly dining and living room. And that you found the rain shower to be awesome! Thank you for bringing our attention to the extra bedroom being too warm. Upon checking, we found that the previous renting guest had turned the heating to "manual" mode; we have now switched the heating back to "automatic", so the thermostat will correct the temperature. Yes, the one upside advantage of the shower en suite off the master bedroom is that the separate toilette room in the center of the apartment means that use of one does not block use of the other. Thank you for your family taking such good care of the apartment during your stay in Paris. Kind Regards, Luke
