This is a real ‘Parisian’, vibrant street, but once you get back home to the cosy apartment you’ll find how quiet and peaceful living on top floor is (with an elevator, of course) well insulated, if desired, by double-curtained, double-glass windows.
Since you are on the top floor of the building, you will not hear any of the overhead noise from people above you.
You should have all of the tranquility you need inside this flat.
This apartment is designed for a fully, comfortable urban living.
There is a comfortable sitting area with entertainment equipment as described above in thelist of amenities as well as a dining area with a table for four.
A comfortable antique chair sits in the corner to provide a nice nook for either planning your day or relaxing with a good book.
Although this is rarely needed in Paris, there is a very effective heater and air-conditioner unit in the salon.
Our modern kitchen is fully equipped for almost any gastronomic task.
We also have a coffee press should you wish to enjoy it in a more traditional manner.
You can enjoy the rare treat of sipping your coffee while overlooking the rooftops of the city.
To make it even more irresistible, try some delicious pastry from the boulangerie down the street (15 seconds walk!).
Additionally, we have a combination washer-dryer plus a dishwasher in the kitchen which are located under the counter space provided for preparing your meals.
The microwave doubles as a convection oven so feel free to pick up some delectable delights from one of the many ‘traiteurs’ in the area.
If you do not know what a traiteur is, they make prepared meals which you can take away to eat in the privacy of our flat in Paris.
The entrance to the bedroom is off of the living room
The bedroom has a very large closet with sliding doors for your luggage, clothes and new purchases.
There is a bit of shelving inside making it easier for you to arrange your things.
You will enjoy waking up in our queen sized bed with the sunshine streaming in to greet you.
One look out of the window when you awake will make you think you are in a Parisian paradise with the beautiful view of Sacre Coeur.
All of the photos of Sacre-Corue on this web page were taken from the apartment.
We have selected mostly original pictures to decorate the wall and insisted on hand made Asian rugs.
Many of the artwork was done by the owner, Ittai, who is also a well known musician- look carefully in the selection of CD’s and you will find one of his recordings.
In addition, there are a few amusing finds picked at the famous Parisian flea markets.
There are large, sunny windows in all the rooms and the bathroom has a ceiling matte window, providing beautiful light with maximum privacy, and a controlled natural ventilation.
The bathroom, which is off of the bedroom, has a toilet, sink and shower stall.
The rare panoramic view from this Montmartre nest spans uninterruptedly from Sacre Cur in the north, the horizon in the east and, finally, the overwhelming southern view of Paris seen from your breakfast table.
Above the rooftops of Montmartre you’ll see the Notre Dame, the Odeon and much further.
The cobble street corner of rue des Martyrs and rue des Abbesses is right in the centre of one of the most vivacious parts of Paris. Rue des Martyrs and the neighbouring streets have housed many famous artists such as Toulouse-Lautrec, Renoir, Moreau and more. Today, it is still a busy area for art dealers and collectors.
This area has many different styles and moods. We feel that ours is that of the calmer, old style Montmartre. You could easily spend your whole vacation within a five minutes’ walk in any direction from the apartment: the Basilique du Sacre Coeur, the Dali Museum, theatres, night clubs, a tremendous variety of fresh food stores and markets, bakeries, chocolateries, restaurants, brasseries and bistros. The closest metro station, Abbesses, is only a two minutes’ walk away. It is located in the lovely Square des Abbesses – where ‘Amelie’ fell in love!
