In an authentic Parisian Haussmannien building (dated 1861), bedroom in a flat with a stylish and typical French ancient decoration style, beautiful antiques. Located in the called “Little Africa” district of Paris, in its gentrification turn, right down Montmartre (7 min from Sacré Coeur) and close to Moulin Rouge in Pigalle (10 min) Entirely renovated, modern equipments. Very well connected with public transportation (2 min from metro with 2 lines) and 10 min walk from Gare du Nord & de l'Est.
You will be staying in the apartment I also live in (both at the opposite sides of the apartment, in a total independent manner)
The 100 m² flat (about 1000 ft²) has been fully renovated in 2015, with modern equipments.
It has been professionally decorated in a cosy and elegant typical Parisian way, with furniture and items of family or clouded in brocante and antique dealers. The global design is slightly modernized by a few contemporary touches.
It used to be 2 separate apartments, now linked by the living room. The 2 “night spaces” are situated at the opposite sides of the apartment. The 2 entrances have been kept. One of them gives access to a corridor that serve the 2 bedrooms for rent (which can be booked together or separately), a dressing room (which also isolates perfectly well the 2 bedrooms), a shower room and separate toilets which are shared by the 2 bedrooms.
The part I live in is at the other side of the flat and runs independently (including for sanitary amenities)
The whole apartment looks onto the courtyard. So it’s very quiet.
It is located on the 4th floor, without elevator.
To help you to get familiar with the environment, I will leave you a list of nice places (restaurants, bars, bakery, supermarket,...) in the district and a map where will be spotted important places.
The guests have access to the shower room and the independent toilets and also the living/dining room and the kitchen. The kitchen is fully equipped and functional (groceries, condiments, tea and coffee are available)
The meals can be taken on the dining table, and you will be able to stay in the living room (I’m often out or in my office)
You also have access to a dressing room where you can put your clothing (hangers available)
Bed linen, towels and comfortable bathrobes are provided.
An iron and a table are also made available.
Some toiletries are at your disposal (shampoos, shower gel, toothpaste, various oils and creams) such as a hair-dryer.
Interaction with guests
As far as possible, and depending on your time of arrival, I might be able to give you personally the key and a little tour of the house.
In any way I will send you before your arrival a little plan of the apartment and will leave in the bedroom a map of the area on which are spotted all shops you might need, with a list of helpful information.
In the living room, there is a “tips” book with good addresses of the area.
Of course, in case of emergency and if I’m away from home, I remain reachable by email or by phone (leave a message)
Other things to note
Check-in and check-out times: The check-in time is from 2 pm and the check-out is 11 am. If you plan to arrive before 2pm or to leave after 11am, please let me know asap.
If you arrive before 2pm or leave after 11am, luggage storage is possible: 5€ per luggage.
Most of the furniture and items in the house are ancient, precious and fragile, which explains the amount of the deposit requested.
About the deposite: it is NOT debited from your account when you make the booking. It might be only if anything happens during your stay (... which is hopefully rare! ;)
The main rule is the respect. Of the place, the furniture and all amenities at your disposal, and also respect of the tranquility of all the persons staying at home or living in the building.
As it is difficult to please everyone, the place is non-smoking. You can go down in the courtyard if you want to smoke.
Complete house rules will be left in the bedroom.
