About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Welcome to Romantic Montmartre!

We are sure you'll feel completely at home in this classic Parisian apartment and you can use it as the perfect base from which to explore Montmartre and all the attractions of Paris.

This one-bedroom apartment is ideally situated for exploring this wonderful area of Paris made famous by so many artists, including Van Gogh, Picasso and Toulouse Lautrec. Within a couple of minutes walk from the apartment you have the famous artists' square the Place du Tertre, the Sacre Coeur Basilica and Montmartre's windmills. And just downstairs, two artists have their studios on the ground floor of the apartment building!

The condo apartment has been completely redecorated and refurbished. It is typically Parisian with its original features still intact, including marble fireplaces, oakwood floors, plaster mouldings and large windows that flood the apartment with light. From the balcony there is a breathtaking view of the famous windmill, the Moulin de la Galette.

The 45 square metres (480 square feet) apartment comprises a living room, bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, entry hallway and walk-in closet. The spacious bedroom has a double bed and the living room sofa converts to a full-size double bed. There's a walk-in closet in the hallway so if someone is sleeping in the living room, there's no need to disturb those sleeping in the bedroom when looking for clothes. (Sleeps 2-4)

The kitchen is fully equipped to allow you to cook at home if you like self-catering or you can sample the many wonderful restaurants in the neighbourhood - check out the Guest Guide in the apartment for our recommendations of tried and trusted cafes and restaurants.

For those rare nights in, there's a television with international channels and a DVD player with a selection of films. The apartment is equipped with free high-speed internet access via DSL or wi-fi, if you're travelling with a laptop or other electronic device. There's also a telephone with free calls to landlines in many countries.

The area is well-served by public transport linking you to all of Paris, including a direct bus route (80) to the Eiffel Tower! (nearest metro: Abbesses)

About Elaine

I fell in love with Paris on a school trip and knew I'd come back some day to live here - which I did. What was meant to be a year or two turned into a lifetime love affair with the city! I enjoy sharing my favourite city with visitors to Romantic Montmartre and I'm always on hand to help.

I travel the world for work and pleasure, staying in everything from top hotels to basic campsites so I have a good understanding of what amenities / facilities / little extras in a holiday rental can make a vacation more comfortable.

I speak English and French, so feel free to contact me in either.

Elaine purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Elaine chose 18th Arrondissement Montmartre

Montmartre has always had a special place in my heart, since I first discovered it on holiday in Paris. Montmartre has a unique combination of true Paris life, as experienced every day by Parisians, and the magic we expect when we visit Paris.

What makes this apartment unique

The living room has full-length windows that open on to a small balcony. There are a couple of floor cushions there so that you can take a book and a glass of wine and sit out on a summer evening. It's very peaceful. Or enjoy breakfast there while you watch people walking by down below.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We would just like to emphasize what everyone else has said. Elaine was great to deal with, and gave us lots of helpful advice. The apartment is quiet,

clean and very comfortable, but only 100m or so from the hustle and bustle of Montmartre. It was a fantastic base from which to explore and we would not hesitate to recommend it to our friends.

Bright and Inviting

My three children and I had a great time in the apartment. My son and I shared the bed in the bedroom and my daughters shared the sofa bed - they were both comfortable. The location was exellent. We would return.

Perfect location and apartment for 2

  • 5 of 5

After arriving from the busy hustle and bustle of the Paris airport (and getting scammed by a taxi driver) we easily found and arrived to the apartment thanks to the detailed instructions Elaine provided prior to arriving. Once at her apartment she personally greeted us at her door and showed us around, this was one more kind gesture among many. Elaine remembered that my husband and I were celebrating a late honey moon/anniversary so she had champagne ready to pop! Her apartment was nothing short of lovely and romantic, I spent my mornings sipping coffee and tea on her terrace and wrapped up my evenings listening to the joy of the people who passed it. Elaine's guide book helped me not only connect to wifi (essential to boasting on facebook) but also helped in narrowing down the many eateries around. Her guidebook also helped in knowing sightseeing opportunities around the corner and getting to know the cinematic history that occurred in Montmartre! As I run out of space to type I wrap up with noting our first time in Paris would not have been what it was without all of the gestures Elaine extended during our stay. Thank you for a lifetime.

Marvelous Montmartre Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Romantic Montmartre is an excellent choice for a couple in the romantic neighborhood of Montmartre in Paris. One of the things we like about VRBO rentals is the feeling like you’re in a real neighborhood . If you like to be in a neighborhood that still feels like the era of early 20th century artistis (Renoir, Picasso, Dali, Utrillo, Corot, etc.) who lived and painted here, this is your place. But also there are shops down the street for groceries, a sidewalk bistro or takeout food. The apartment is exactly as shown in the photos. Lots of light in the living room. Elaine is superb to work with. We arrived with a crisis – like lost wallet!!! Elaine worked with us for over two hours to make necessary reports, cancellations, replacements, etc. She went way beyond the call of duty. Highly recommended

Owner's Response: Thank you for kind words. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. Happy to have been able to help with your problem - I know that it's no fun to have to deal with a crisis like that within minutes of arrival, so I'm glad I was able to smooth the way a little. It was lovely meeting you both, and I hope to see you back in the future. -Elaine

Wirklich romantisch

  • 5 of 5

Wir verbrachten wunderbare 10 Tage im August in Paris. Vielleicht gerade weil halb Paris in den Ferien war, präsentierte sich die Stadt, abgesehen von den Tourismusbrennpunkten, als entspannt und entspannend. Die kleine Wohnung im vielleicht schönsten Teil des Montmartres erwies sich als ideal gelegen für unsere täglichen Exkursionen. Es gab auch in der Ferienzeit noch zahlreiche geöffnete Bistros und Restaurants, aber auch Geschäfte für die Selbstversorgung mit frischen Lebensmitteln. Trotz des touristischen Trubels rundum Sacré-Cœur lag die Wohnung recht ruhig und hatte einen schönen Ausblick auf den gegenüber gelegenen Garten. Die in einem Altbau gelegene Wohnung hat viel Charme und wirkt durch ihre modern-schlichte Einrichtung zugleich authentisch und praktisch. Es ist an alles gedacht, um einem den Aufenthalt so angenehm wie möglich zu machen: Wir fühlten uns sogleich Zuhause. Elaine zeigte sich sehr hilfsbereich und gab uns viele Tips für einen guten Start in unseren Urlaub. Auch nicht unwichtig: Verglichen mit der von unseren Freunden zur gleichen Zeit nur eine Straße weiter gemieteten Wohnung erwies sich die formale Abwicklung als angenehm prompt, korrekt und unkompliziert. Wir hoffen, bald wieder zurück kommen zu können.

Lovely Wintery Montmartre

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this Paris apartment with my husband and daughter (10 yrs) for just under a week. The weather was bright but cold. Paris wore an Autumn gown. The apartment was excellently situated near lively areas of Montmartre, very cosy, clean and bright and just right for our needs. Well described in the listing and the owner very helpful and welcoming. Recommended.
