The bathroom is also totally refurbished with shower.
The apartment is ideally positioned facing south towards the center of the city, so it has lots of natural light and sun all day long, something quite exceptional in Paris.
It is situated at the edge of the famous Montmartre area, with its many small streets and its little specialist shops, cafes and restaurants. A bit further up the hill and just 3 min away on foot, you will find the stairs that lead to Sacre Coeur, another famous Parisian landmark. Behind it, on Place de Tertre many artists gather to sell their works of art or to draw your portrait for a small fee, continuing the long tradition of artists, Montmartre is famous for.
This is how Montmartre is described in one of the guides.
'Everyone has their opinions about what to see first in Paris, the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame, blah blah. Forget it. Get off the plane and go to Montmartre --one of the neighborhoods of the 18th arrondissement, an 'outer' arrondissements of this little escargot known by the locals as 'Paname.' This arrondissement, the center of Bohemian romantic life, the setting for Buz Luhrmann's Moulin Rouge and of the Les fabuleux déstin d'Amélie Poulain (Amelie) has everything. Great food at good prices, French Chanson, art, tacky sketch artists, charm, vulgarity, shops, monuments, class, and if you don't want it -- you can find no class. The 18th is where you will find spectacular Sacre Coeur, the Musee Dali, winding hills, vulgar and cheap souvenirs to take home to people you don't like so much anyway, Moulin Rouge, Pigalle – everything that is great about Paris. Though it is no longer home to as many artists and bohemians as it once (they have moved to Montreuil a neighborhood to the East of Paris) and even though the bourgeoisie and their money has flooded in, there is little that can be done to erase the charm of this neighborhood... gentrified or not.'
Another important fact about this apartment, is that both metro and buses are right in front of it, which means that you will not have to walk far with your luggage when arriving and departing or when getting home after a long day out sightseeing, or even better you can get home for a few hours to rest and then go out again.
With Paris and the Eiffel Tower just at your feet, beautiful Montmartre just around and a fresh looking, cozy, home to come back to, this is by far one of the best places to be when in Paris!
Welcome and enjoy your stay!
Minimum stay 4 nights.
