Overview

9th Arrondissement Opera Condo Rental Photos and Description

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

This beautiful place that can sleep 5/6 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 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, Poltrona Frau 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 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 2 people. 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

Why Diane J. chose 9th Arrondissement Opera

this neighborhood is the real Paris: fun, classic, intellectual and in the center of everything. the new york times finally discovered the neighborhood... 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 country home, 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, etc...

Wonderful would come back again to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My girls( age 22&18) and I had a wonderful experience staying at Diane's apartment. We really appreciated all the lovely decorative touches and her little extras that made our stay so special. We enjoyed exploring the neighborhood and appreciated her detailed reccomendations. The neighborhood towards Moulin Rouge is "interesting" but we never felt unsafe even walking late at night. The apartment was conviently located close to a grocery store and the metro. Diane was lovely to work with and very responsive with lots and lots of information! We would highly recommend this rental and hope to revisit again in the future

A charming apartment in an excellent location for exploring Paris.

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is delightful. The two separate bedrooms, living room and kitchen make it a perfect place for two couples or one couple and two singles to enjoy. The information the owner Diane provided was very helpful. It was nice to follow her route for "what to do on your first day in Paris". It took us a couple of days to discover the wonderful grocery stores at the bottom of Rue Des Martyrs but we were quick to find the gorgeous croissants just around the corner. The Pigalle area is a great location to access the Metro and the buses-also good for a quiet wonder through the Montmartre. The area still has dance clubs that are quite busy on the weekend but we were too busy enjoying our own dinner and wine to be bothered! We would definitely return and would recommend it to others.

Fabulous stay in February

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 stayed here in February of 2016. It was fabulous. The location is very convenient to buses and the metro. The apartment is just how it is described in the listing. There is a grocery store just a few doors down and many delicious patisseries (try them all!) in the neighborhood. Diane has prepared many wonderful tips and maps on things to do and how to get places. I highly recommend this apartment without reservations.

My second stay here, as great as the first time

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this apartment previously in March 2015 for 3 weeks and liked it so much that I reserved the same place in January 2016 when I returned to Paris for 5 nights. The apartment was as nice and comfortable as I remember. It's very clean, bright and well-located, with 2 good-sized bedrooms, large bathroom, washer/dryer, dishwasher, kitchen, dining table, cable TV, WiFi. The apartment is nicely decorated and very comfortable. The location in the South Pigalle area is amazing -- cafes, restaurants, specialty boutiques, and right near a metro stop. A great thing about the neighborhood is that it's vibrant and interesting, but not too touristy. The owner Diane provides lots of guidance and information about the apartment and the neighborhood. Highly recommended.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment in a convenient, bohemian location! Within 200 yds of a Metro station and only a block or two away from Montmarte and Rue de Martyrs. The apartment itself was well furnished and worked extremely well for a family of four with two college age kids. Diane's booklet with insider advice to the neighborhood was thoughtful and valuable. Would recommend highly.
