About the property

Romantic Paris apartment featured in many magazines

This Romantic Paris apartment is located in what has recently become a very trendy neighborhood called So-Pi ( South of Pigalle ) out of the tourist area, yet within a five-minute walk of Montmartre and Sacre Coeur. The apartment looks out on a little garden, and is free from any street noise. As you stroll the surrounding area, you will find both hip and traditional restaurants, shops, and craftsmen nearby. And just two blocks away is a full-size swimming pool. The 660 square ft. apartment was decorated by Parisian artist Bruno Pascal and has just been completely refurbished. It offers all of the modern conveniences including a technologically outstanding shower, a high-tech adjustable bed system, an extra KS sofa bed, microwave, dishwasher, a Bang & Olufson TV and DVD player as well as broad-band internet. This is strictly a non-smoking property.

The apartment has featured in several books, magazines and TV shows both in Europe and the US:

About Karolien De Craecker

I live with my family in Ghent-Belgium-two hours by train from Paris. On the spot Cassia takes care of the apartment and the guests.

Karolien De Craecker purchased this apartment in 1997

Why Karolien De Craecker chose Rochechouart

We bought this apartment to use it ourselves in the first place. So we looked for an area that was safe, child-friendly and not to touristic. On the other hand it had to be at walking distance to the main attractions like Louvre, Marais, Champs Elysées etc..

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is located in what is now one of the hippest areas of central Paris called South of Pigalle. It has been refurbished in 2014.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What an island of tranquility in the midst of Paris!

Spacious, light and warm (we were there in winter!) it was heaven to retreat to after a hectic day on the metro around Paris.

There was a great supermarket down the road to the right, and a boulangerie with great croissants.

Two metro lines took us wherever we wanted to go and there were plenty of great guides in the apartment. As an artist I loved the painting there, it radiated peacefulness! I can wholeheartedly recommend the loft to any discerning traveller as the ideal place to stay in Paris!

Many many thanks Peter & Rita ...we loved it.

My wife and I spend a magnificent week this month in this apartment. It was really our 2nd home away from home. As a new parent we thought it maybe difficult to fined every thing we need in short term rental apartment but instead of that every we brought was already there and ready to use.

I would recommend this apartment for every one want to spend a pleasure romantic stay in Paris.

Our family of five enjoyed a fantastic 5 days in this apartment. We were comfortable, cooked, ate in local restaurants, bought fruit from the market, croissants from the boulangeries, coffee from the cafe below, groceries from the down the road, frequented Anvers Park, ran up the stairs to Sacre Cœur, and conveniently accessed three metro stations. Great hosts, lovely space and location.

The neighbourhood cannot be better

  • 5 of 5

South of Pigalle has become such a hot spot. Difficult to get a table without making reservations a few days before certainly for Friday nights.The apartment is in the middle of where it all happens but so calm once you're in.

U hebt een ongelooflijk fijn en leuk appartement met alles erop en eraan.

Rozenn heeft dit voortreffelijk aangepakt en ons een hartelijk welkom gegeven!

We hebben uitstappen gedaan zoals "het Louvere", boottocht op de Seine met halte aan de Eifeltoren en de Notre-Dame en met taxi of te voet eenvoudig te bereiken.

We hebben geluk gehad om onze dagen (van 18/12/15 tot 21/12/15) altijd te kunnen buiten eten op de terrassen doordat men verwarming liet branden, gewoon zalig!

Een hoogtepunt was toch wel het diner in "La Mascotte" waar we uitgebreid hebben gedineerd met natuurlijk "les fruits de mer". Heel vriendelijke bediening en ons buikje was rond.

In Parijs hebben we veel gesprekken gehad met de mensen die er echt zelf wonen - men is vriendelijk en behulpzaam om allerlei leuke info over Parijs te geven.

Het ouderwetse bakkertje en de kaaswinkel in de straat heeft lekkere dingen zodat je niet meer weet wat kiezen.

De taxi's (G7 = officiële taxi's) waren prima en voor niet veel geld kon je overal naartoe. Prima alternatief voor personen die lange afstanden moeilijk kunnen wandelen.

Een echte aanrader en een plek om terug te keren!!!!

We had a great stay on the edge of Montmartre. This is a little oasis in the busy City. Well designed, the spaces work very well together and we were very comfortable. The Metro is close with three stations within a few blocks. The Friday market is great and there is a grocery store nearby (a very well stocked Monoprix). Peter gave us a lot of leads on nearby restaurants.

Incredible Paris loft apartment in an historic artistic area

  • 5 of 5

The loft was clean and interestingly designed. Comfortable bed and close to the metro. It is a safe and perfect Parisian neighborhood with nearby shops and stores. The price was right and the owner was very friendly and helpful. We had a fantastic time in Paris and when we were tired from all our walking and sightseeing, it was a home away from home.
