Our smart, recently renovated second floor apartment has a separate bedroom plus combined living room/dining area.
The warm, neutral colours of the walls provide a perfect contrast to the burnt orange touches added throughout the living area.
It adds the perfect amour or love appeal in an intimate space.
All of the rooms are off of a central entryway which comes into the open salon and kitchen area.
This makes it perfect should you have a third person sleeping on the sofa bed as no one must cross each other’s sleeping area to access the bathroom.
Off to the hall, you have access to the bedroom which offers a queen sized bed.
The double glazed windows in this room and others overlook the street below.
There is a large wardrobe with storage space above and a separate shaker style wooden hanging coat hook for your convenience.
Entering the hallway, the toilet and shower room is directly to the left of the front door (to the right if you are coming out of the bedroom).
Above the sink is a long, mirrored bathroom cabinet to store your toiletries.
Opposite the sink is a heated towel rail for your comfort on a chilly winter’s day.
The modern interior offers a calm, cool living space which you will enjoy returning to each day.
You can relax or ‘people watch’ from the open windows as you listen to the sounds of live musicians performing in and around the Place des Abbesses area.
The American style kitchen just off the living room area is well equipped with generous amounts of counter space and cupboards.
There is also Corian worktops, deep stainless steel sink with mixer tap.
For your convenience, there is a combination machine for both washing and drying your clothes as well as a dishwasher.
The refrigerator with separate freezer compartment is unusually large my most French standards.
The kitchen space also features a useful bar surface.
You can enjoy a glass of wine while watching someone prepare your meal from the fresh produce found everywhere along the rue des Abbesses and rue Lepic area.
Just off of the kitchen, in the living area, is a dining table perfect for two people to have a romantic dinner tete a tete.
There is both a 2 and 3 seater sofa in the living area and the small one can convert to a bed for one, if needed.
The storage cabinet in the living area has a television with cable for the nights when you may want to stay in and relax.
There is also a permanent internet connection should you be travelling with a computer or mobile device and need to stay in touch while away.
Abbesses Amour offers you a quiet and intimate sanctuary just 2 minutes from the hub which is Place des Abbesses.
This allows you to dip in and out of the bustling vibe of Abbesses as you wish.
Our well equipped flat welcomes you home after your activities out and about in Montmartre or further afield in Paris.
Living amongst other full-time Parisian residents also requires a different level of respect and consideration as you may have different schedules than the rest of the people living in the building. We ask that you always conduct yourselves in a respectful and discrete manner when entering/exiting the building and in the common spaces as many of us are more accustomed to larger spaces, or single family homes in our native countries with minimal contact with our neighbours. In Paris, as you will see, we all live right on top of one another.
Neither smoking nor pets are allowed.
Welcome to the Abbesses district of Montmartre, renowned for its trendy bars and cafes that tumble out onto the pavements.
You will immediately feel the intimacy of the area as you walk along the ancient cobbled streets, passing the stylish boutiques and food establishments offering cuisine from different parts of the globe as well as France.
If you prefer, the breads, pastries and cheeses will keep you satisfied as you stroll around.
For those who wish to eat a complete meal, ‘traiteurs’ offer cooked dinners to heat up at home.
Perched above Abbesses is the Basilica de Sacre Coeur that is accessed by charming stone staircases.
The climb is rewarded by spectacular views of Paris, the City of Light, aptly named, as you will see when taking an evening walk.
The relaxed village feel of Montmartre offers something for everyone.
As you mingle with the musicians and artists, you will quickly feel part of this vibrant quarter of Paris that is Montmartre.
