The flat is located on a private lane that gives onto the Rue de Martyrs (see map) and onto one of Paris' most chic neighbourhoods. That makes it very easy to reach any part of Paris from the house with the Métro (subway) system: the Pigalle and Le Peletier stations are close by, giving access to 4 Métro lines. The Gare du Nord is a 15-minute walk away, with its high-velocity trains and airport train. The lane is only open to residents and is watched by a security guard, which makes it a very calm and pleasant area.
Some of the best restaurants, cafés, fashion boutiques, and services are just a short walk away on the Rue des Martyrs, Avenue Trudaine, or Rue des Abbesses.
The neighbourhood is also pleasant for couples or friends, as well as for families, thanks to its parks, promenades, toy stores, and activities.
The Rue des Martyrs is located in the 9th arrondissement and is quite lively and active, with its famous food shops and other boutiques. It's a very fashionable neighbourhood in the centre of Paris at the base of the Montmartre Hill. South Pigalle boasts a diverse array of cafés, trendy restaurants, cinemas and theatres, and near the Galeries Lafayette and the Galeries du Printemps. See the New York Time's article about the Rue des Martyrs: "On a Historic Street, One That Got Away".
The 100-sq.m flat was recently renovated and is very comfortable and practical.
It is located on the 2nd floor, without elevator access though with an old staircase with easy steps.
The front part is perfect for 1 or 2 couples, with a large bedroom (Bedroom 1, with a king-size bed) and a living/dining room with a comfortable wardrobe/bed (Bedroom 2, with a king-size bed). A bathroom with a large shower and a new and well equipped kitchen is located on the other side of the entrance.
A separate bedroom (Bedroom 3) is located on the landing, and contains a shower room, and can be rented for a third couple for an additional €60 per day.
Access to the upper floor is reserved for travellers. You can rent groups of 2 or 4 (or 6 with the bedroom on the landing) depending on your preference. The rental is designed for a group of travellers, whether a family, group of friends, or a couple. Wi-Fi, TV and internet connections are available. In order to guarantee a peaceful experience, receptions are not allowed, and the rooms are non-smoking. Children are welcome.
Exchanges with travellers
When we welcome travellers, we include all the practical details about the lodgings and the neighbourhood in order to ensure a pleasant stay. We'll help you during your stay and give you all the information you may need, whether about the flat or Paris, from questions and advice to our insider tips. I live on the first floor, and am at your service for any questions you may have.
The flat offers easy access to buses, the subway, and taxis.
From the airport, come to the Rue des Martyrs, then follow the instructions given during the booking process. If you're taking the RER train from the airport (Roissy-Charles de Gaulle or Orly), the Gare du Nord station is quite close, about 800 m from the flat. The most practical Métro station is Pigalle, which is about 400 m away. Parking is available nearby, but vehicles are not recommended in Paris.
Rentals are for a minimum of 3 nights. We rent the main part of the flat for 1 or 2 couples for €200/day and the third bedroom on the landing as an optional addition for €30 per additional traveller, or €60 for an additional couple.
