About the property

2 bedrooms, 2 sleeper-sofas, 1 bathroom (WC in separate room), sleeps 7

The enchantment of Parisian living with the luxury of modern amenities.

Located at the foot of the 'village' of Montmartre, the apartment was recently remodeled to preserve the original charm dating back to 1869, while providing for a comfortable stay in the city of lights. With over 900 square feet and two large bedrooms, guests have plenty of room to relax and make themselves at home. Five glass double doors bathe the apartment in sunlight and allow access to two separate balconies that run the length of the apartment. The living room seating area provides two couches as a comfortable space to recount the day's adventures. A well appointed kitchen and dining table for 6 people allow for a home cooked meal of local ingredients purchased from neighborhood markets. The original wooden floors will tell you the tales of Montmatre's days gone by, while a short walk up the hill through the lively village of Montmartre will find you at the foot of Sacre Coeur, providing for a stunning view of the entire city.

In the village of Montmarte, there are numerous cafés, boutiques, restaurants, renowned pâtisseries and chocolate shops.

The apartment is located on the French second (American third) floor of a walk-up building. Three useful metro lines (#2, 4, and 12) For arrivals from the Eurostar, Gare du Nord is a ten minute metro ride to the apartment.

Additional amenities include wifi (now with fiber-optic speed) and phone calls to landlines in more than 50 countries. All bedding, linens, and towels are provided.

About Luke

We are two Americans that have lived in many places around the world, and were luckily enough to put down roots in Paris.

Luke purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Luke chose 18th Montmartre

After an exhaustive property search in the city we love (honestly over 40 apartments visited), we were thrilled to become the owners of our own little 'Château' apartment. From the first step on the original wooden floors of Château Montmartre, we were enamoured with the charm and detail that could only be found in such an authentic place. The atmosphere transported us everyday from the hustle of the city life below, to the decadent days of French gilded mirrors and marble fireplaces.

What makes this apartment unique

We decided to take on the challenge of self-managing a few updates to allow for a comfortable lifestyle. With an expanded, modern kitchen, and a spa-inspired bathroom, we believe the apartment offers the best of both worlds.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you, Luke,

We just arrived and found the apartment as promised ! It's perfect!

Thank you for the information !! Great Apartment!

We had a wonderful stay at the apartment . We owe you for one drinking glass which was accidentally dropped! Please make a note of it.

Quaint French apartment

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! We were very comfortable. The apartment had a nice kitchen with everything we needed to feel at home. The beds were also very comfortable. The only thing that was difficult was the bath is in the master bedroom and the toilet is in a different area of the house. Luke was very easy to work with when making preparations for our stay. We would definitely stay again when we return to Paris.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your thoughtful response, we are happy to hear that your family enjoyed staying at our apartment during your vacation, finding the beds comfortable and the modern kitchen to your liking. The split-bathroom arrangement (toilette and shower in separate rooms) is common in France, a clever idea to avoid that use of one prevents use of the other by other members of the family.

Perfect Place for the Perfect Price!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was perfect for our stay in Paris in all ways--price, location, comfort.

PRICE: For the very reasonable cost (an entire 8 nights cost the same per person as maybe 2 nights in a hotel). The three of us all felt as if we had our own space in the apartment (two bedrooms and the pullout in the living room) and enjoyed the common space in the evenings when we could bring home a dinner or sit around the table before bed having champagne. Overall, the apartment is very cute and spacious for Europe and gives you the amenities that you just don't get in hotels. The full kitchen was great because we were able to buy/store some breakfast items (as we were often out the door before most cafe's opened) and were able to have morning coffee. While there is a TV, we didn't use it because...well, you're in PARIS! Additionally, the apartment comes with a washer/dryer. While we didn't end up using it, had we known that this was included we may have packed a little lighter and washed our outfits half way through. Either way--it's incredibly nice to have just in case you accidentally spill a delicious Nutella crepe on your white shirt.

LOCATION: Two of us had never been to Paris before and we planned to do many of the tourist things. This apartment was right next to a few metro lines so it was very easy to get around the city and go everywhere we wanted to--we didn't take any taxis except to and from the airport. Additionally, it's so close to Sacre Couer and the Montmartre area that you could easily spend a day just walking around that neighborhood and getting lost in shops and cafes.

COMFORT: Luke and Caroline were also amazing to work with. Luke was very informative and sends you plenty of information prior to your trip so that you feel safe and prepared upon arrival. Caroline was also very helpful in answering questions about the apartment and even set up taxis to take us to the airport. Both were extremely responsive to our emails or questions during our stay, which made us feel very comfortable.

In the end, we had never been to Paris before so really weren't sure where we should or where we wanted to stay. However, this apartment completely met our needs. If you're like us--this is a great rental!

Owner's Response: We are so happy to read your thoughtful review and that your family enjoyed the apartment. Yes, the apartment is very spacious for Paris at 85 square meters (900 square feet), and besides the old historic Parisian interior design charms, we invested in enlarging a fully renovated kitchen and bathroom to modern standards. We enjoy being supportive and responsive before and during your rental stay, to best enable your enjoyment of the apartment and your time in Paris. Thank you for taking such good care of the apartment!

Beautiful apartment in up-and-coming neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This is an extremely charming 2BR apartment with a great modern kitchen / bathroom and other amenities including washer/dryer, on the outskirts of the Monmartre hill. We loved our stay and had no complaints. As other reviewers noted the block directly around the apartment is not really for tourists, but just a 5 minute walk up the hill is a lovely street with bustling restaurants, bars, etc., and of course the Monmartre hill itself and all its attractions. Luke was a highly professional and responsive host and went above and beyond when we requested to extend our stay by a couple of days. I hope I will be back some day !

Owner's Response: Happy to hear that you enjoyed our apartment and thank you for the great review! The modernization of the bathroom and kitchen was our primary contribution, as the rest of apartment's very classic Parisian charms needed very little improvement. I was happy to support your enjoyable experience and stay, thank you for being such mindful renters and taking great care of the apartment.

Charming French Flat

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is spacious and just oozes old French charm. The neighborhood at first glance seems worrisome but we never felt unsafe and the shop owners were so kind. They would even let us know when they were going home for the night so we could find parking!

Owner's Response: We are happy to hear you enjoyed the historical French charm of our apartment; we fell in love with it ourselves, as increasingly rare to find an apartment retaining so many of the "charms a l'ancien" (as the French say, historical charms). Glad to hear the shopkeepers were helpful with parking, parking never easy to find in Paris! Thank you for taking such great care of the apartment during your stay.
