Saint Georges Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, 6 people Stylish, bright and Quiet with all you need

This beautiful place that can sleep 6 people plus there is a baby bed. We equiped it like the way we want to travel ourselves to make your life easier: 2 french cellphones with free communication so that your group can split and communicate easily (free of charge), hair iron, towel dryer, nespresso machine for great expresso, baby accessories, baby carrier backpack etc.

It is located right on 2 subway lines and 5 buses lines to visit all monuments with no trouble (I will provide itinerary guide).

Recently renovated by an architect, it kept its classic touch as it has parquet floors, molded ceilings but has modernity thanks to the designers furniture (Philippe Starck, P. Urquiola, etc...), antics and authentic classic advertising from the 1930’s (you will love them !!). There is no doubt you will feel at home. While being in a lively area, this 5th floor condo (with a elevator) is incredibly quiet as it opens on 2 courtyards on both sides. It proposes a master bedroom with a queen size bed and a dressing, another bedroom that can be set up with a queen size bed size or 2 twin’s beds and, an extra sleeping in the living room with a sofa that can sleep very comfortably 2 people (queen size). One baby bed is also available if needed. The kitchen is well equipped with modern appliances to cook fantastic French dinner

few details

Neighbourhood: Our appartment is located in the 9th, the real Paris, in the 'trendy' SOPI - South Pigalle that the NY times describes as ' “There is no better place to rent an apartment and to pretend, even for a brief time, to live in Paris.”

Walkable distance to Montmartre, Moulin Rouge, Place des Abbesses, the bar staged in the movie Amelie, and all the shopping area of the Grand Magasins/Opera, and the garden of the museum of the vie romantique! Historically, this neighbourhood, famous in 19th Century literature, was called the 'New Athens' as most of the intellectuals of the era were living there at the time: Hugo, Chopin, Sand,Gauguin etc… while less wealthy artists were living in Montmartre. This unique intellectual energy and the mosaic of people living here, makes it one of the neighbourhoods valued by the Parisians to live. It has been celebrated by the New York Times as the 'real Paris’ off the standard tourist track. Jean Paul Gaultier and several movie stars are living a few houses away and can be seen in the street. This neighbourhood is a unique one, which explains the limited number of apartments that are available. Today, many young, talented fashion designers have located in this neighbourhood and are side by side with authentic food store and the numerous guitar shops. The famous 'rue des Martyrs' is 5mn away proposing one of the best and authentic choices in term of food shopping and real Parisian fooding (NY times describes it as 'the last real street in Paris.”).

Transportation: Very well located to discover Paris, it is connected to most of the key neighbourhoods by 2 subway lines that covers Paris from North to South (line 12) and east /west (line 2) and 5 buses (30/54/67/74/montmartrobus) will take you directly to the Champs Elysees, the Louvre, the top of Montmartre, the left bank etc..

Adjacent to the building, you will find a grocery store open every day until late (very unique in Paris) andstores with very nice owners. Our building host as well a tiny standing comedy theatre that has some English speaking shows in the summer time (no noise for you as it is on the street side). It is located on a quiet courtyard just off the animated ‘rue Jean Baptiste Pigalle and the rue des martyrs

About Diane J.

We are an Franco/American family- Diane is Parisian and my husband is American. We have been traveling a lot, lived in the 2 countries. One of our source of joy is to share our best times and addresses of our trip. Paris is a very special place for us. If you need any tips for family travel in Paris, let us know.

Diane J. purchased this condo in 2000

Why Diane J. chose 9th Arrondissement Opera

South Pigalle is the real and "hip" Paris: fun, classic, intellectual and in the center of everything. Best food scene (in competition with North Marais), the new york times, Vogues, etc... has now discovered the neighborhood which increase the number of designers and good restaurants here... but I am an "early adopter". I fell in love with it when I arrive to study in paris... in 1990.... and I am still in love with it.

As the NY times describe it:

“There is no better place to rent an apartment and to pretend, even for a brief time, to live in Paris.” “FOR me, the Rue des martyrs is the last real street in Paris.”

What makes this condo unique

The quietness of our place in a lively neighborhood. the style of the place with unique piece of furniture from our french family, unique piece of arts from the 1930's and the fact you can do everything walking or enjoy the fantastic subway and bus connection that are right there.

You will enjoy all the details to make your life easy: 2 local cellphones to use during your trip, beauty accessories such hair iron, adaptors, tooth brush charger, baby gears if needed etc...

A beautiful Parisian home with a Gracious Host

  • 5 of 5

Communication with Diane was amazing from the beginning of contact. She provides prompt responses and amazing amounts of information concerning Paris and the flat. When we arrived at the flat, Lily was there to welcome us and give us a comprehensive tour, showing us how everything worked. There were a couple of bumps at the beginning of the stay, which Diane responded to immediately and made everything right. She even provides some french liquor libations as part of the welcome that guests can try.

The flat is beautifully decorated, clean, wonderfully equipped and has great light. The bedding is comfortable and clean, even the pull out couch in the living room, which was new installed upon right before our arrival. We were actually disappointed that we could not purchase the same type of sleeper sofa in the US since it was easy to use and comfortable to sleep in.

Even though the stated square footage seems small, it was a great size for the 5 of us to use, since the layout seems to increase the spacious feel of the flat. Each of the bedroom windows face a private courtyard, so street noise is almost non existent during the sleeping hours.

The flat is close to restaurants and many forms of transportation including bus and metro. A few different small super markets are available within a block range.

Basically, we can't wait to return to this charming beautiful Parisian home. Thank you Diane.

Central apartment, responsive owner

  • 4 of 5

I stayed at Diane's apartment with my 3 children in early November 2016. I found it to be a very comfortable pied à terre in Paris and well equipped for families travelling with small(er) children. The location is very central, close to Montmartre and many other attractions (for instance, you can walk to the Passages Couverts in under 20 minutes). There are at least 3 (!) small supermarkets just outside the door. Good bakeries also abound in the neighbourhood, especially on Rue des Martyrs. What really set this apartment apart for me, however, was the responsiveness and solicitude of the owner, Diane. I sent her an email due to a slight mixup over our arrival time, and she called me back literally within minutes. I can recommend this apartment and would stay here again. You can book with confidence.

Dream come true!

  • 5 of 5

Our family visited Paris for the first time and chose this apartment based on the reviews that said the location was convenient to transit. Well, every aspect of the apartment was absolutely perfect. The care taken to ensure everything our family would need while away from home for six days was spot on. The availability of two cell phones, the adaptors to charge our American devices, the linens and comfortable beds, and the well stocked kitchen made the apartment the perfect home away from home. The location was unbelievable. Getting on and off the metro and being home within three minutes was wonderful. One of the other great things about the apartment was a pleasant surprise. Even though the apartment is so close to transit, as well as plenty of shops and cafes, it is unbelievably quiet due to being on the inside courtyard of the building. Thank you, Diane and Lilly, for your hospitality and for playing such a large part in making our first family trip abroad such a tremendous success!

Sincerely,

The Collins Family

A home away home

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the apartment before Lily; however, with the detailed info provided by Diane before arrival, we had no problem getting ourselves into the apartment. The apartment is clean and has all the things we needed, ie. comfortable beds, fully stocked kitchen, laundry units etc. When Lily arrived, she also gave us an orientation about the apartment. She is very friendly and helpful. The apartment is nearby metro and bus stations. It does not face street so it's very quiet. It's also very close two grocery stores, which we visited a few times. Most importantly, Diane is a great host that provided so much help and tips even before our arrival so that we had a very enjoyable trip in Paris. We would definitely stay there again.

Comfortable Flat in a Lively Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

From the exterior, the property is very plain-looking, but once one is past the front entry, in the courtyard, and up the stairs (or lift), it has charm and character. The interior layout of the apartment is quite nice with the master bedroom tucked away down the hall, a second, nice-sized bedroom, and a comfortable living/dining room. The kitchen is quite small but contains good, contemporary equipment, and the bathroom is great--with a very attractive tub/shower and even a combined washer-dryer. We were traveling with a small child and were thankful for the potty seat and travel crib.

One of the highlights of the apartment is the host, Diane, who is very conscientious and caring. She has put together a terrific booklet about favorite restaurants, cafes, and shops along with nearby sights and transit information. I have spent very little time in Paris, but was able to jump right into the experience with her as a guide.

If I had a chance to stay in this apartment again in the future, I would jump at the opportunity.

Owner's Response: Frances, thank you so much for your kind words. You were wonderful to have over. I really do appreciate family traveling with kids as it is a wonderful chance for them to experience the world early. We even improved the appartment after you left: new beautiful angle couch to relax at the end of the day, beautiful marble diner table and few equipment for the kids: comfy changing station to adapt in the bathroom + a baby carrier backpack. all will be ready when you come back. a tres bientot- Diane
