Overview

About the property

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...

Highly recommend it!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely enjoyed the apartment! The welcome packet is a must read. It is full of great information. Lilly was there to welcome us (thanks for your patience- our arrival took longer than expected) and walked us through the basics. The apartment was perfect for my family of 4. We traveled there with a 1yr and 6yr old. Thanks again!

Beautiful apartment. Helpful and welcoming owner.

  • 5 of 5

Apartment is right on the fringes of the red light district to the west, but travelling an easy walking distance in any other direction offers great sightseeing- Montmartre, Sacré Cœur, the Opera Garnier - and you are only 100 metres from the Pigalle metro station that will take you to the rest of Paris. The apartment itself is lovely and charming, and fully stocked with extra towels, linens, dishes, and kitchen items. Warning: you need to do a REALLY small load of laundry (no more than 2 full outfits) if you want it to emerge dry from the combo washer/dryer, but there is racking in the master bedroom closet where you can hang some items to dry as well, so it is still pretty convenient. Overall impression - Diane is a great host, and we would DEFINITELY stay again.

Lovely Apartment

  • 4 of 5

Diane sent a wealth of information prior to our arrival which was very helpful, and Lili greeted us warmly. The apartment is near the red light area but to be honest its not really a big deal and I have kids who are 9 and 7. its also near Montmartre and Moulin Rouge. You can also access the apartment from another train station and take a walk up Rue de Maryters (spelling is probably wrong). The apartment was very comfortable, clean and tidy, quite roomy for the 4 of us and surprisingly quiet for being so close to cafes and bars. Its very well equipped. Its on the 4th floor so I think I lost weight while in Paris but there is a 1 person lift up which is great for the bags but I never used it. Good storage area for the bags so they were out of the way. Highly recommend and if we ever get back to Paris would love to rent it again.

Owner's Response: Hello Rochelle. You seem to have found the way to loose the croissant calories !! I should have done it when I was leaving in there. We were quite lazy and used to take the lift with my husband and kid. Vital space was not an issue in this configuration. I do hope you kids will remember this trip and come back one day Diane

Fabulous home base in Paris!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six enjoyed a marvelous stay in Paris and quickly found our home in this comfortable apartment. We loved being able to walk to local markets, cafes and restaurants -- just steps away and so convenient. Visiting a few different boulangeries & patisseries was a morning ritual! Some days the kids liked to sleep in and wake up to a take-away breakfast, briefly connect to WiFi...and then off to a fun-filled day! The neighborhood was lively and it certainly felt like we were living as much like locals as possible. It is worthwhile to explore the SoPi neighborhood a bit as there is much to take in. Our last full day we walked to Montmartre, took in the view from the Sacre-Coeur and admired all the artists works and talents; we even purchased a small canvas to display at home! The nearby Metro was easy to utilize, however we walked more than we rode the train. Though I think if we did it again, we may not walk to the Eiffel Tower and climb it, then to the Arc De Triomphe and climb it AND walk back on the return trip all in one day ;) But what sights and excitement! All-in-all, tremendous apartment with so much to offer amongst an exciting local vibe. Merci beaucoup!

Owner's Response: I am so happy all of you had a good time and love the fact you spent some time in SoPi. I just love this neighborhood. It makes you feel that you are a part of it, not "watching' or "visiting" it. have a nice trip back diane

Best apartment we ever had!

  • 5 of 5

We travel a lot, mostly staying in holiday apartments.

We found this apartment to be close to perfect to our needs.

Stating from the communication with Diane, entering to the apartment past midnight, the cleanliness, equipment, comfortable beds, the kitchen, location close to transportation and much much more.
