About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

This 30m2, 2nd floor, 1 bedroom apartment was designed and furnished by a designer friend of the American owner. It has been recently repainted.

The designer has divided the flat in 3 main spaces :

- a living/dining room with integrated kitchen

- a calm and convenient bedroom

- and a nice stone tiled bathroom.

The living room is extremely bright thanks to its 2 large windows. Facing the windows is a select stone building with nice bow windows.

The kitchen is fully integrated. A table/bar specially designed has drawers opening on both ends. Its tray may be set long or short.

The rest of the furniture is of the same style and wood material. Finally, a large mirror reflects the light and widens the room.

In between the living room and the bedroom, a curtain creates privacy at will . It received the custom built wardrobe.

The bedroom receives light from the two sides, bedroom windows and the curtained entrance. It offers a very comfortable bed for 2.

The cosy modern sofa in the living room can also be used as a single bed.

Bathroom offers a nice bath tub. It is designed with modern style sink and toilets. All the floor and walls are covered with stone tiles. The bathroom has a large window that brings sun lights into the bath.

As a bonus, Phone calls to land lines in France, and to US, Canada and australia are generaly free. It is also true for more than 50 countries. More over, calls to cell phones towards specific countries (often US & Canada) may also be free. Ask us for detail as it may vary with time and policies of operators.

The rue CHAPPE, where the apt is located, gives on a large and steep stairs on the left. The SACRE COEUR gardens are 2 mn walking distance.

The apt is located in the inner Montmartre: Les abbesses. The trendy part of Montmartre is just down the street : many restaurants, shops and nice café terraces. The ABBESSES subway station is 2 mn walk. This location is a perfect base to visit Paris. It stays 15 minute by subway to most interesting Paris locations AND is a very charming and restful area to be appreciated after a whole day shopping and walking through museums.

Last point, we are staying 1 block away. We are here if you need help.

erfect location

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in apartment Chappe. Montmartre was a new section of Paris for us, and it was fantastic--great restaurants, lots of variety; great little shops, and a lot going on. It had a real neighborhood feel. The flat was comfortable and quiet, and it is perfectly situated to take advantage of all Montmartre has to offer. We will definitely be back!

A marvelous time in Paris

  • 5 of 5

What a marvelous time in Paris! I was traveling alone and wanted to have somewhere comfortable to call my home base. This beautiful flat in Montmartre was just that. Honestly I probably spent a little too much time there, it was just so nice. Central location, close to everything on the hill... hardly a block from the Sacre Coeur and abbesses subway, and walking distance to the moulin rouge. Lots of cute boutiques and cafe's right around you. Touristy section isn't too far off - if that's your thing - but also easily avoidable.

The area felt very safe and comfortable. As a native new yorker I'm used to being hassled a bit in cities and sorta tried to prepare myself to experience that while traveling alone. Nope! Paris kept it clean, aside from a few flirty accordion players who added some laughs to my Parisian experience.

Jean Noel made the check in process incredibly simple. No problems finding my way there from the airport by subway, or getting into the building. Deposit returned within a few days of my departure. I would totally rent from him again, and recommend his properties to my friends.

A unique stay

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at apartment Chappe was exactly what we wanted and expected. It was a very clean and efficient apartment that suited our needs as a young married couple looking to explore the city for the first time! Though we did not cook in the apartment the kitchen was perfectly equipped and had we stayed longer we would have utilized it. The location is in a very interesting part of Paris that we grew to enjoy - it is close to a very touristy area but within a few blocks you are in a part of Paris that many probably do not take the time to find. It was conveniently located a few blocks from a major metro line and had plenty of cafes and bakeries that we frequented daily! Jean-Noel was excellent in responding to any needs. I would highly recommend renting this apartment if you're looking for a unique stay on a budget while still having a desire for something very nice!

Exactly as described

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was really cool. We liked the apartment. It was exactly as in the pictures. As it is located in the center of Paris, it was really convenient to visit other places too. Also the surroundings were very calm. And it was easy to catch the metros and shops. We really loved our stay. We recommend this apartment to all our friends, families and everyone. Definitely, we will choose this apartment for our next visit in Paris.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5


We had the absolute BEST time in Chappe. We couldn't have asked for a better, cleaner, more convenient apartment. I already miss Monmartre and I just left yesterday. Thank you for making everything so easy for us and helping us to get into the apartment so quickly.

We look forward to staying with you again!

Lovely apartment but huge hassle with water leaks

  • 2 of 5

The location of the apartment is superb in the heart of Montmartre and very close to metro stops for easy access to the rest of Paris. It is a cute hotel alternative for a couple on vacation in Paris at what seemed like a great price. That is the reason for two stars instead of only one. The issue was that when we arrived we noticed water leaking from the base of the toilet. It wasn't a huge deal at that point but I let the property management know because I wanted to be clear it was like that when we arrived. During our stay the leak got worse with a water puddle forming on the floor, and on top of that water started dripping from the ceiling above the toilet. We had to drape ourselves with a towel to use the toilet! I called and because it was a weekend they couldn't have someone fix it right away so we had to live with that. It was a real bummer on our vacation. Apparently the bathroom in the apartment above us had a leak and I guess the owner there was gone but eventually they turned the water off and someone came to fix the leak. The toilet continued to have a minor leak. Just beware there may be issues with the bathroom and toilet. Although it may have been fixed since we stayed in May, I question the overall maintenance of the apartment since there was clearly a leak when we arrived and no one had done anything about it.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. It always helps us to improve our service. We are sorry you were inconvenienced due to the leak. Unfortunately leaks happen. The leak was located in the apartment above. It had nothing to do with maintenance of our apartment, which we believe is very well maintained. Thankfully the leak was a minor one. We immediately did our best to identify the owner of the apt. above. It took 3 days as the owner was on vacation. As soon as the apt above was accessible the water was shut off and the leak stopped. Future guests can feel comfortable and can rest assured : since May, the building managing committee has had experts, architects and plumbers visit the building to identify the source of problem and repair. All is well.
