Sacre Coeur StudioBack to Paris
The Sacré Coeur Studio is a petite studio apartment with views of the Sacré Coeur and Montmartre cemetery located just minutes from the heart of Montmartre in one direction and the trendy Batignolles neighborhood in the other. This is a diverse and bustling neighborhood, perfect for budget conscious guests looking for an authentic Parisian stay.
The building of the Sacré Coeur Studio is situated at the end of a private pedestrian street, a cité, which once housed the workshops of traditional French artisans. The studio consists of a luminous and cozy combination bedroom/living area with a fully-equipped kitchen. There is a double murphy bed that can be conveniently folded away during the day, a couch (also used as a single bed) and dining table complete with Sacré Coeur views. The cleverly designed kitchen provides everything you need for cooking full meals from a microwave/oven combo to a set of All Clad stainless steel pots and pans brought over from the US.
The modern bathroom sink and shower are tucked behind the kitchen for privacy, but are otherwise open to the studio space. You can enjoy the view and relax in the large walk-in rainshower. The W.C. is separate and private. This studio even offers a surprising range of storage options. This short- to long-term apartment rental is the perfect choice for a memorable, stress-free vacation.
Just a short walk from the Sacré Coeur Studio, you will find many restaurants, cafés, food markets, and shops along with charming streets to wander and explore. There is an excellent food and produce market on avenue de St-Ouen, just a five-minute walk from your Paris flat. The well-known rue Lepic market is a 10 minute walk in one direction while the Batignolles market is a lovely 10 minute stroll in the other. Backpackers, students, families, friends, and couples alike will feel at home in this lively and authentic Parisian neighborhood.

It’s no surprise that the picture-perfect village of Montmartre has been the backdrop of so many well known movies, from Amélie Poulain to Midnight in Paris, and inspiration to many famous painters, like Picasso, Dali, Van Gogh and Monet to Toulouse-Lautrec, Mondrian and Pissarro. Winding cobblestone streets, romantic staircases, and hilltop vistas seem to have stayed frozen in time, and are at their most enchanting in the early morning hours or at dusk, when the crowds have dispersed. The tremendous Sacré-Coeur basilica represents Paris’ highest elevation point and offers a crystal-clear view of the entire city. After you pay a visit to the basilica, other cultural must-sees include the Musée de Montmartre, the Éspace Dali, and the “I Love You” wall, found just behind the bustling Place des Abbesses. Get a taste of the neighborhood’s ambiance while wandering the Sunday food and produce market on rue Lepic and rue des Abbesses or the emerging small businesses around rue Caulaincourt and rue Custine. Don’t miss Muse Montmartre and its charming owner, Majid, on rue Burq for a gorgeous bouquet of flowers, Coquelicot for Sunday brunch, Cuillier Café for fresh-ground coffee, and L’Epicerie des Environs for all that is local and delicious. Rue des Martyrs, starting in Montmartre and finishing south in hip Sopi, is one of the oldest market streets in the city and has greatly evolved in the recent past. It now boasts the charming Café Marlette, delicious Rose Bakery, hip Kookaburra coffee shop, Pain Pain bakery, Neo T teahouse, Sebastien Gaudard pâtisserie, and many other delicious speciality food shops. Its warm, inviting charm only continues to grow and merits a stroll from top to bottom, and back. Staying in Montmartre, you’re steps from hip SoPi,,an easy metro or bus ride to the famous flea market at Porte de St-Ouen to the north, and an easy walk downhill toward the bustling Grand Boulevards, Opéra, and Madeleine neighborhoods to the south. The convenient metro will whisk you to any point within the city in no time at all.

We enjoyed celebrating our 30th anniversary in Paris with HIP. The Sacre Coeur studio was as advertised, small but well equipped and perfect for our 5 day stay. The location is great with quick access to the Metro, restaurants, cafes, and markets nearby. The view from the studio is stunning, and we really enjoyed the local flavour in Montmartre. As always, the HIP team ensured that everything went smoothly during our stay. Thank you Haven in Paris. A la prochaine!
Easily the most wonderful place to stay while in Paris - HIP are so kind, their lovely team will help you no matter what time of the day. The apartment is exactly as it looks in the photos - and the personal touches of a bottle of wine and flowers on arrival is just so lovely. It's a quite and perfect part of Paris to stay - and a place I'd happily stay in again one day.
What do you say about this quaint little studio in Paris, except C'est Magnifique! The whole process from booking to ending our stay was flawless. The HIP team were perfect in every way. They were very responsive, helpful and made the experience. Please do yourself a favor and take advantage of their suggestions on the website, especially the car service was great. I know Raffaella is leaving, but she was a dream. Sweet and very helpful. Her replacement will have big shoes to fill. As for the studio, we had a lovely view in a very sweet place to stay that truly helped make this trip a wonderful experience. Don't be turned off by the neighborhood, we never felt unsafe and in fact felt right at home. I could not recommend this place more. Enjoy!
The studio could not have been more well equipped and laid-out! It was amazingly efficient for such a compact space. The view over the cemetery looking up to Montmartre was amazing! Very easy to access the metro and loved exploring the neighborhood leading up to Montmartre.
tt was all perfect. Rafella was excellent in showing us around the apartment. I really can't think of any suggestions (maybe a lift - given the 4 flights of stairs - but that exercise meant I could eat more!). Otherwise I would recommend the apartment and HIP to anyone travelling to Paris. It was all so easy from booking through to departure. Cleaning was good.
The staff at Haven in Paris are tremendous to work with and will make your stay an enjoyable memorable time. Check the opening and closing times of favorite tourist attractions in the area if you are visiting and be prepared for wait times. We are very familiar with Paris and during the Christmas season there are many Christmas markets to visit all over Paris. We especially loved staying at the flat we did because of the locality to the Metro, shopping and ability to cook many of our meals. The flat is quiet with a wonderful view and great location to everything. If you are new to Paris make sure to ask about the local places to eat and places to visit that are not your usual tourist attractions. All we can say is that our trip was wonderful and the staff at Haven in Paris were the best! I could not recommend a better company to work with. Very honest and trust worthy!!! Merci Beaucoup for everything to the staff at HIP we will be staying again soon!
My trip was great and way too short, even at eight nights. I've made more than 20 trips to Paris. I enjoyed staying in a real Paris neighborhood ... usually I've stayed in the Marais or Left Bank ... and this area has a more "real" atmosphere. The apartment is tiny but totally functional. I liked having the murphy bed to get it up and out of the way during the day. The kitchen made it fun to buy food in the markets ... which for me was breakfasts and snacks more than actually cooking. The view across the cemetery to the Sacre Coeur was great. I was in Paris for a trade show and the combination of the Metro plus a bus almost at the doorstep made it easy to get around anywhere, and I am sure that would be the case for tourists as well. On the downside ... the four flights of stairs must be taken seriously! Since I had a long stay plus was going onto another location it was hard to get my things up to the place and actually down was even harder. One night, the light went out before I reached the door, I think it was on for another tenant and I'm not sure pressing twice extends the time, and it is VERY dark in that stairway. Also there is no way to put the light on if you are leaving in the dark. As a female traveling alone, I felt uncomfortable stopping at the immediately near-by cafes which seem dominated by Arab men only. Finally, there must be a high school near-by and several mornings the students outside were quite loud when I really wanted to sleep in. Despite those points, the ease of getting around and the price make it likely that I would stay there again. Note from HiP: Thank you for your candid comments Carol. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the apartment, but are sorry that you felt uncomfortable at the nearby cafes and the students from the high school woke you up. The area around the apartment is certainly safe, but does have some more diversity to it than other neighborhoods. The high school is a few doors down and the students do congregate on the street to chat before and during classes. We are sorry that this prevented you from sleeping in on a few mornings, but do appreciate you noting all of this for future guests. We look forward to having the opportunity to host you again in the future!
With over a week remaining in our stay, we already had thoughts of extending it. Paris, a wonderful city to walk, to see the buildings, the gardens, the crowded Metro, the museums, it is a never-ending site.
I just wanted you thank you all for helping me during my process for my amazing dream vacation. I was so nervous going on vacation alone but your dream team help me through my process. Your team have answered all of my questions that I have asked. The Sacre Coeur Studio property had everything that I needed. It was clean and the location was perfect where I had easy access to the Metro. I was able to do my own shopping at a convenience marketplace not even 2 minutes away from apartment. I am also extremely happy that I was able to make telephone calls to my family just to inform them that I was okay. Rafaella was great and she was very helpful and available when I needed her. In the future I do hope to make a second trip back to Paris or maybe try another location like London. I will most definitely use your services. Again thank you all so much from the bottom of my heart. I truly appreciate everything you all done to make my dreams comes true.
The check in and check out greeters were fantastic, no complaints at all. Rafaella was out of town when we arrived but she made arrangements for a friend to meet us instead which she had let us know about ahead of time. Her friend was really friendly, on time, accommodating when we asked to push back the greeting time by 30 minutes due to arriving at the airport late, and knowledgeable about the apartment. She showed us how to work every appliance and showed us what was available in every cabinet. Rafaella was also very friendly and on time as well with the check out. She also contacted us when she came back into town to see if we needed anything but we were fine. I also really appreciated the email from HiP halfway through our stay, checking on us. The flat was basically spotless!! We were very pleased about this. Also we were very pleased that the cleaners managed to get everything done in time for an early check-in - we were fully prepared to wander the streets of Paris after dropping off our luggage but pleasantly surprised that we were able to use the apartment already (just the thing you really need when jet-lagged and pregnant). We were also pleased about all the appliances, dish ware, and even teabags available in the apartment. The mattress on the bed was on the soft side and may not be suitable for someone who has chronic back pain like me where a firmer mattress is generally preferred. However, there is a daybed in the flat which is firmer as long as you don't mind sleeping apart from whoever you came with. :) Thanks to HiP for a great stay! We truly enjoyed it and were so happy we went with it. We will definitely be recommending to all of our friends!
We enjoyed our stay in Paris and found the apartment to be of a high standard, very well stocked with everything you should need and more. Fitted out to a very high standard and very ingenious use of space. We felt very safe in the apartment and enjoyed the well kept gated courtyard and the friendly greetings of the guardianne and other occupants when we bumped into them on the stairs. There was a boulangerie opposite and another down the street and two supermarkets for any impromtu breakfasts and English breakfast tea for my necessary morning cuppa. Our greeter, Rafaella was charming, helpful and kind. We couldn't be more pleased with her local knowledge, professionalism and helpfulness. She is gold standard! The cleanliness of the apartment was very high and it was easy to keep clean.
Raffaella greeted us when we arrived in Paris and was superb in helping us to understand how everything worked. The book in the apartment was wonderful in helping to remember all the details. Raffaella was perfect for both check in and check out and was friendly and helpful. I would recommend her highly. The apartment was well appointed and lived up to its billing: the 4 sets of stairs were exactly that. The beds provided were exactly as advertised. The provisions in the apartment were perfect and I was very impressed with how this tiny-perfect apartment worked for myself and my two daughters. We all loved it. One tiny detail: we came back around 11pm on Saturday evening and came in the back entrance by the cemetery. Everything worked perfectly but we did notice that there was a group of young men gathering and starting to follow us (not in a positive way) as we walked down the street who appeared thwarted when we let ourselves into the gated entrance. I would recommend that you advise visitors not to come in that entrance after dark. Otherwise the neighbourhood appeared to be very safe as we were right across the street from a school. I would highly recommend your service and this apartment. We booked one of the cab companies noted in the handbook in the apartment to get to the Gare du Nord and they were excellent. Thank you for your constant updates and communication. Everything was clear and as expected. Perfect for our holiday. Anne-Marie: Thank you for letting us know about the group near the cemetery. We are sorry about that. I do not think this is normal; I lived here for over a year and luckily that never happened to me, but renters should be on guard anywhere in Paris.
We had a wonderful week's stay at the Sacre Coeur apartment in Montmartre. Rafaella's welcome was much appreciated and informative; it was nice to know she was just a phone call away if we needed anything. The apartment is small, but has absolutely everything you may need, including a washer and dryer which came in very handy.The fourth-floor walkup can be seen as an inconvenient, but we chose to see it as a bonus workout on top of our long walks through the city. The view over Montmartre Cemetery with Sacre Coeur in the distance is gorgeous, and best enjoyed with a glass of wine in hand! All in all we had a wonderful experience and wouldn't hesitate to rent a Haven in Paris apartment again.
A fantastic way to enjoy Paris like a true parisienne! I stayed in the apartment for a week and was able to fully explore Montmartre and the rest of the city. The area is the 'real Paris' rather than some of the more manicured areas on the Left Bank but I felt very safe and it was rare to hear another English voice around and about. Although the location isn't traditionally central there are great transport links and it's also only a 30 minute walk into the 1ere arrondissement. I was really impressed by the cleanliness and high quality fittings furnishings - from the powerful shower to the free calls and fully kitted out kitchen. Don't let the bed put you off, it's very easy to manage and very comfy! The HiP service was spot on - my greater was there when I arrived and kept in touch during my trip without being invasive. I can't recommend it highly enough!
You accept that visiting Montmartre and Sacre-Coeur is a Paris must-do, but this time we also decided to stay right in the heart of this area, in a tiny studio really just for two. The climb up 4 flights of narrow steps with cases tested the upper legs, but rewarded with close cemetery view, eyes settling on the distant landmark of S-C. Cleanliness was high level; inclusions provided for all aspects including fresh soap bar, plenty towels and varied book selection. Best of all was being part of the community, greeted daily by neighbours, quiet walks beyond cemetery yet shops and traffic towards metro stations. S-C studio introduced us to a different Paris.
Our stay at the Sacre Coeur Studio was excellent. The flat was small, but more than adequate for two best friends spending a week in Paris. The flat had everything we needed. Rafaella was a great hostess - very truthful and full of recommendations. The apartment was very clean - much cleaner than my own apartment in the States! The location is a bit outside of mainstream Paris which we enjoyed and it is quite close to the Metro station La Fouche. As young women, we avoided the metro after 10pm or so, but at no time did we ever feel threatened or unsafe. We have already made recommendations for friends/family to use HIP and in the future would do it all again!
We absolutely loved this apartment. It was updated, clean, charming, just wonderful. We loved Rafaella, our greeter. She was sweet and showed us how everything worked. It was very nice to have a washer/dryer fridge. The metro stop was close and we had such a great time exploring the city. The only thing we didn't love was how thin the walls were. We could hear the neighbors talking and listening to music. I'm sure that is something everyone in Paris deals with in these wonderful old buildings, but it was a little unsettling. We would stay here again though, it wasn't a big deal!
We stayed in the Sacre Coeur studio apartment for 7 nights in May 2013 on our first trip to Paris. The Haven in Paris team were extremely helpful throughout the entire booking process. Their prompt communication was fantastic and upon booking the apartment, we were provided with instructions on how to locate the apartment on arrival as well as a Paris guide that included information such as public transport services, tours, classes, shopping and restaurants. There was also a copy of this guide in the apartment when we arrived. Our greeter Raffaella was lovely and very helpful. Raffaella had contacted us prior to our arrival to schedule a time to meet to show us into the apartment. We ran a little late and Raffaella was very patient and waited for us to arrive, despite having another appointment immediately after ours. The apartment was what I imagine typical Paris living to be, it was compact but well equipped with a well stocked kitchen, a washing machine and dryer and new appliances throughout. It was very clean and well presented, there was a great selection of books and Paris guides and we had everything we needed and more. International calls to Australia were included from the phone in the apartment which was a nice touch so that we could call home to let our families know our big news when my partner proposed to me outside Sacre Couer on our second day in Paris! The location was great. It was a short walk to the main street in Montmarte and close to Metro stations. It was a great base for our holiday in Paris. I would highly recommend Haven in Paris to anyone holidaying in Paris.
Haven in Paris was fantastic. Having never rented a vacation apartment in the past (we've always stayed in hotels when traveling), I was a little nervous booking one of the HIP properties. But after speaking with a few others who'd gone through HIP in the past - and hearing about their positive experiences - we decided to give it a shot. Not only was it easy (and economical!) to book a property with HIP, the property itself (we stayed in the Sacre Coeur studio apartment) was very clean and well equipped with most things someone with a lengthier stay would need - i.e., pots/pans, dishes, cutlery, towels/linens, etc. Finally, our greeter was Roger and he was incredibly friendly and had excellent suggestions for us regarding where to shop locally for groceries, eateries to try, and so on and so forth. He took his time making us feel comfortable in the studio apartment and was always easily accessible (by e-mail, phone) whenever we had questions - both prior to our arrival as well as during our stay. I strongly recommend booking a property through Haven in Paris. We had a great time and will look to them again the next time we visit Paris - perhaps try one of their other locations.
Rafaella greeted us very warmly upon our arrival and was very helpful with any questions with accommodations and any other random questions we had. The studio was quaint with an awesome view of an old cemetery. It was small but had everything you could possibly need for a week long trip. We made dinner a few nights and did a couple loads of laundry at our fingertips. The studio was in a great location, walking distance to Sacre Couer and close to the Metro. Overall, the trip was magical and the host and studio was perfect pair for our first time to Paris. We would definitely stay there again. Merci!
What a wonderful week we spent here in this beautiful apartment. Thank you for your marvelous accommodations - can't wait to return!
An excellent stay - the property was just as we had imagined. At the last minute our 6' 5" son decided to come along with us, so we were three in the apartment. The apartment is very small, but just as we expected and well set out so it wasn't a problem at all. The approach to the apartment is charming and the view over the cemetery gorgeous - this isn't mentioned on the website but was a major bonus as far as we were concerned. The apartment is light and sunny. It is not in the usual touristy areas, but the metro is very close and you can get anywhere fast. If I was going to make a suggestion, we cooked every night we were there and the kitchen equipment could have been a tad better - i.e. no glasses of a decent size for a spirit drink, oven in microwave and not a lot of baking equipment i.e. baking dish, but this is being very picky. There were other things we weren't expecting like orange juice press which was great. Roger who met us was terrific and generous with his time. Excellent - would definitely stay again.
We loved everything about our stay in this apartment. The rental process was easy, prompt and reasonable in every respect. The property itself was gorgeous. My husband and I have traveled in many parts of the world and lived in major cities such as NYC. We have stayed in a variety of upscale properties, but this simple studio was perhaps my nicest experience in over 40 years of travel. The location was magical, from entering the darling courtyard, noting the architectural details of the Cite, climbing the winding stairs, to the fascinating views of the cemetery and Sacre Coeur basilica throughout the day and night. I have serious arthritis and my husband has asthma, so a clean and physically accessible location is key for us. In spite of the stairs, this studio was so beautifully thought out in its layout and so well located that I never felt the walk-up aspect was an impediment to managing with the arthritis. The cleanliness of the apartment when we arrived achieved my very picky level of housekeeping, which is rare for even the finest hotel. In addition, the quality of the renovation of the apartment, such as the paint, tile, fixtures, and finish work, was very high, making it quick and easy for me to keep the place spotless during our stay using the vacuum and ample cleaning supplies. This was very important to me, as my husband and daughter (whom we were visiting) have asthma and allergies and have become sick in dirty hotels. The ad mentions a small hot water heater, but we never had problems with hot water running out, and the bathroom itself was, again, constructed with high quality fixtures, making it a comfortable and soothing bathing experience for my middle aged, arthritic body - and who can beat the view of Sacre Coeur from the shower! We loved being steps from the grocery store, Metro, and fun and funky Montmartre. Finally, we used a driver recommended by HiP, who arrived promptly and safely and efficiently got us to CDG at a horribly early hour in the morning.
The property is in an excellent location (i.e., by Metro, grocery/wine shop)! The directions for getting into to the apartment from the gate are specific, however, finding the gate was challenging. Our directions on Mapquest brought us to the opposite side of the building, which had no entrance, so it would have been helpful to direct us from the Metro stop to Avenue de St Owen and provide an approximate number of meters along that route to the gate. On arrival, we were timely greeted by Roger, who oriented us to the apartment and the neighborhood, and answered our questions about Paris. We found Roger to be a very friendly and helpful fellow, who was extremely customer oriented. We enjoyed meeting him! The apartment furnishings were excellent, even down to providing us with a few staples such as coffee, tea, and spices if we wanted to cook or just have a cup of tea! Also, the kitchen was well stocked with plates, pots, etc, if you decided to cook in, or just have breakfast as you plan your day. The kitchen had everything you needed. Lastly, having a washer and dryer in the apartment was a big bonus. Our experience in the Sacre Coeur apartment was extremely positive. In fact, on our last night, we watched a wonderful display of fireworks over the Sacre Coeur! It could not have been better. We would definitely stay here again!
I thoroughly enjoyed my stayed at the Sacre Coeur Studio.I found it to be exactly as described and pictured on the website, but also full of thoughtful details and touches, such as a fully stocked kitchen and lovely fluffy towels! It was spotless, cleverly designed, and - oh!- that view! My greeter, Roger, did an excellent job of making me feel welcome. He followed up immediately when I had trouble initially with the WiFi. Much to my delight, he had it working the very next day! I enjoyed getting to know the area, which proved to be quite convenient. At Haven in Paris' suggestion, I checked out Le Bal, an art space and cafe right nearby, which is wonderful. I also spent the better part of an afternoon wandering in the Cemetery which is fascinating and beautiful. All in all, a completely positive experience. I can't wait to come back!
As a writer I'm always looking for a nice quiet place where I can write, read and rest. I've been renting apartments all over Europe for the last fifteen years, but the tiny Studio Montmartre found via Hipparis is my favourite, among with a room in a former palace I came over in Trastevere, Rome. It's pocket size but clean and furnished with both style and comfort. Even forks and knives in the kitchenette are picked out with great taste. And the view from the windows makes you want to stay forever! It was also nice to be greeted with flowers and wine. It's all in the details!
We loved the apartment and upgrades you have done. We cooked, did laundry and love your linens and dishes. You have beautiful china and silverware! We will be with you again. Great views! Merci!
Haven in Paris is an excellent property management company to use while traveling abroad. Everything was done in an excellent and efficient manner from the booking, meeting our host on site, and the accommodations. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to rent abroad for a vacation!
My wife and I truly enjoyed the stay at the Sacre Coeur Studio in Paris. We are so happy we found Haven in Paris. The service and reservation process was incredible. Each person associated with HIP was great to work with. It was wonderful to be able to stay in an actual Parisian apartment and neighborhood. After the busy days of exploring Paris, the apartment really was our haven in Paris. It was relaxing and beyond our expectations. I highly recommend renting an apartment from Haven in Paris.
We loved our little Sacre Coeur home for our week in Paris. It had everything we needed - great facilities (washer & dryer), fantastic chic shower, comfortable bed, decked-out kitchen (even with a bounty of ground coffee ready to go in the fridge) and was ideally located down the road from two supermarkets and within walking distance to one of the best boulangeries in town. We felt truly spoilt to wake up to a stunning view over the cemetery to the Sacre Coeur and look forward to staying there again the next time we are in Paris.
Raffaella was wonderful and let us know everything we needed around the apartment and in the neighborhood. The apartment was also wonderful-- it was exactly as we pictured and it was clean and fresh when we arrived. It was so convenient to have the laundry in the apartment as we did not pack enough cold-weather clothes but were able to wash the few that we had for our stay! Our stay was wonderful and we will recommend Haven in Paris to our friends. In fact, my brother and his wife are staying in another apartment in Montmarte in just a couple of weeks! Thank you!
Ingenious is the word that springs to mind to describe this little studio. Only 20 m2, yet it looks and feels stylish, airy and spacious, and it's equipped with everything you need. Thanks to clever built-in cupboards there is tons of storage space, and the Murphy bed is very comfortable. Being in an apartment building, you can hear the neighbours' comings and goings, but at night it is really quiet -- not even any traffic noise. The street of little workshops and cottages is charming too. We loved the fact that any passing neighbours would say bonjour. Being off the tourist track like this makes you feel like a local. It's only a couple of minutes' walk from the metro, and there are plenty of local shops, including a boulangerie across the street and a supermarket just a couple of hundred yards away. A 10-15 minute walk takes you to Abbesses and rue Lepic. Perfect in every way!
Thanks for having such a well-stocked and well-furnished apartment for us to stay in! We appreciated the high quality kitchen utensils and appliances so that we could make a few home-cooked meals. We won't hesitate to use your services again to explore another area of the City of Lights! Merci beaucoup!
The Sacré Coeur Studio was just the right size for my fiancé and I. We spent a week in Paris and it really felt like a home away from home for us. We are looking forward to staying in another HiP apartment in the future! Thanks for having such a well-stocked and well-furnished apartment for us to stay in! We appreciated the high quality kitchen utensils and appliances so that we could make a few home-cooked meals. We won't hesitate to use your services again to explore another area of the City of Lights! Merci beaucoup!
Thank you for the follow up email. We enjoyed our stay and the property was as described. Our greeter was very helpful and friendly. Overall, no complaints and we would not hesitate to rent another property from your agency in the future.
Rafaella was great. She texted me as soon as I arrived at the airport, was responsive to any questions I had, etc. Really lovely. The shower was great. The flat was very clean. Very! and I am picky. One of the selling points for the apartment was reports of the cleanliness, and I was not disappointed.The bath towels were as great as reported by others, so that was nice. The Murphy bed was extremely comfortable but I would not have been able to share it with anyone. For just me, it was amazing. The whole flat was perfect for one person. Not sure how it would be for two. The apartment was not as noise-proof as a hotel room. You could hear all the neighbors, their music, conversation, and of course, comings and goings. On the other hand, it was nice to have neighbors. I needed a match at one point and the guy on the first floor was friendly as could be. I also was missing a glove one morning and when I walked downstairs someone had found it and propped it on the banister. You might want to list as an item to bring: shampoo and conditioner. Also, I was also happy to have a pocket umbrella, which I knew to bring since someone else mentioned wanting an umbrella. It is great that you had one in the apartment, but I was happier to have my own that I could stick in my bag. I loved my week at the Sacre Coeur studio. Thank you!
After six weeks in Paris, this was the perfect place to finish our trip! Thanks to Haven in Paris and Raffaella for all your dedication. We enjoyed our stay!
We loved our stay in Paris. In brief, the cleaning was excellent. Raffaella, our greeter, is a sensitive sweetheart and everything we expected in a concierge/greeter. We contacted her several times prior to our arrival in Paris and were pleased with her responses, which we found to be clear, efficient, yet open and engaging. Raffaella explained everything clearly and helped us with other issues, over and above what a greeter /concierge would normally handle. She is an excellent representative of Haven in Paris and I would highly recommend her to handle questions and crisis alike.
Awake early our last full day in Paris, thinking and talking about our very full and happy week. The sweet Sacre Coeur studio will serve as a lovely frame for our memory of a realization of a dream we had 30 + years ago. We enjoyed this dear place from top to bottom. Thank you for your attention to detail which plainly shows your care for your clients. We were delighted with the fireworks near Sacre Coeur on the night of Oct. 8. It was fun to watch here in our "jammies". I'd love to return.
I concur with Jill's comments completely. We have long dreamed of traveling to Paris ever since our children were young. Now, as grandmothers of many, we are here experiencing this incredible city. The week has been made extra special because of this dear apartment. Its quaintness, the Murphy bed, the lovely thick towels - and our marvelous view of Sacre Coeur - what a way to feel a part of a city. We were made to feel so welcomed by Raffaella and her fabulous friendly smile. It was most comforting to know she was near should we need her assistance. This is truly a lifetime experience - merci beaucoup!
We loved our little apartment. It met our needs very well. Raffaella was a wonderful greeter and was eager to be of assistance. We also loved all the contact emails prior to our departure as they were personable and welcoming. Only recommendations: advise as to where the stairwell light switch is as we had to leave at 6:00 one morning and we walked down all those stairs in total darkness clinging to the bannister.* Also the computer was not reliable nor was the TV.** Ended up not accessing it at all. Thank you for the free telephone calling to the US. That was a great bonus. Loved the total experience! *HiP Note: We are currently taking care of the computer and TV situation. **HiP Note: We will make sure to tell future clients about the light switch in the stairwell.
Perfect for a single person using it as a base for a long stay.
This studio was perfect for myself and a friend. It's the perfect size, in a quite neighborhood with a beautiful view every morning. I look forward to returning on my next stay to Paris.
My husband and I stayed at the Sacre Coeur studio for five nights and it was great! The location was very good - close to Metro and the view was fantastic. The apt was small (from a North American perspective) but much bigger than the average hotel room in Paris and super cute. It was very well laid out and had everything we needed including a bottle of wine when we arrived! The neighbours were very nice as well. I would highly recommend this apt and HIP!
Thank you for giving me the feeling that I lived in Paris for a week, not that I visited Paris.
We loved the location and the apartment was very cozy and fully equipped. Would be sure to emphasize that it is a walk up for those having heavy bags. The greater was prompt, thorough, and friendly. **HiP Note: We do note on the property page that this apartment is up 4 short flights of stairs and would be a problem for anyone with trouble walking.
My husband and I came to Paris to celebrate a family member's birthday and our 25th anniversary. The Sacre Coeur studio was just lovely with breathtaking views of the Sacre Coeur and the cemetery. We enjoyed the cozy quaint apartment which was well equipped. Thnank you Erica for for provding this lovely apartment and Raffaella for her warm welcome. Our trip to Paris was delightful
The property was as described on your website and in the correspondence. The kitchen was well stocked with every implement that could possibly be required. The bed was comfortable and the duvet fluffy. Loved the view, and the flowers and bottle of wine were a particularly nice touch. Raffaela was great. She did an excellent job of explaining all aspects of the apartment and made it very clear that I could contact her if I had any questions/issues. The apartment was exceptionally clean. And it was also easy to keep clean, due to all the cleaning products/implements provided. It's good that you make clear prior to booking that the staircase would be a challenge for anyone who suffers from mobility issues. Certainly, getting a large suitcase up the staircase was a challenge, but well worth it once I got there! I was one person, and there was a good amount of space me. Two people would also work. I really would not recommend this apartment to a group of three or more, or even two + a child. Haven in Paris' booking and communication process is excellent. Very reassuring and extremely professionally organized. I will definitely recommend Haven in Paris to anyone I know looking for an apartment in Paris, and am looking forward to booking again myself in the future. Thanks for a great stay in Paris!
What a lovely and romantic spot for my partner and I to spend a week in Paris. It really was such a luxury to come back to a peaceful, "home" feeling space after the hustle and bustle of the city. Tea in the morning while looking across at the cemetery and Sacre Coeur was a delight. Haven in Paris was so helpful and so was Raffaella - definitely an experience to remember and repeat! Thanks so much!
We had a direct connection with HIP through Ariel, who is a good friend of my niece. She was wonderful in responding to my first foray into the booking process. The communication and consistent follow-up from HIP was fantastic. The Sacre Coeur studio was a tiny(!) but very charming studio with such a view, it was a joy to wake up there and to come home to at the end of our day. This was my second visit to Paris but my daughters first, it was a gift to her for her 21st birthday. I especially wanted to stay in the Montmatre area as she is a Fine Art student. We had the most memorable week together in Paris, walking for miles and taking in everything including many art museums and shops. The food was wonderful.
We absolutely loved staying in this apartment! It was cute, clean, and well stocked with the basics we needed. The neighborhood was exactly what we were hoping for. It feels like the "real" Paris we wanted to experience. Walking to the shops on rue Lepic to pick out our breads, wines, meats, and cheeses to eat back at the apartment was one of our favorite things about our time in Paris. The apartment was clean and efficient and Raffaella (our greeter) was great. She was there waiting for us when we arrived, and was there a few minutes early to come meet us when we were leaving. She was very efficient in showing us the apartment and how to use all the appliances. We can't wait to come back to Paris!
Thank you for a wonderful stay! We so enjoyed exploring the other side of Sacre Coeur, and sleeping peacefully with the cemetary below. Thanks for the thoughtfulness and care in the Haven in Paris experience-we'll be back!
Thank you for allowing my daughter and me to live like Parisians for a week. It was a dream come true! We love the simplicity and efficiency of the apartment and we love waking up to bright sunshine and view of Sacre Coeur. I would love to come back to Paris with the rest of my family and rent a bigger apartment for us, and when I do. I'll know to use your services again. Thank you and till next time. P.S. Raffaella (our greeter) was wonderful - a great first welcome into the apartment. Such a vibrant young lady!
As return client to this property, we knew we would find the place to be pleasant, and impeccably clean with a great view. We knew a smiling, caring, competent greeter would be there as agreed and come quickly to set things right when we actually goofed up the much appreciated TV/computer setup. We'll be back - what else can I say! Thank you, Fritz
I had a WONDERFUL week in Paris. It was a lifetime dream come true. My little apartment was just perfect. David picked me up right on time and was charming. Snazzy car too! Raffaella met us at the apartment and she was a delight. She explained the techie things and showed me where to find everything I might need. She also brought lovely roses and snipped the ends and put them in a vase for me. She even got out a wine glass! The apt. was well equipped, spotless and cozy. I had everything I needed. I was on the go! Wow! I should have booked at least a month! It was filled with light from the enormous windows and the view of Sacre Coeur behind the cemetery was spectacular. There was nothing to improve upon, as far as I noticed. I LOVED it! So yes, it is possible for a 68 year old grandma to go alone to France, speaking only a little French AND have a great experience. You ladies helped with it all, and I am very grateful. I will certainly use your agency again when I plan another trip. Thank you for all your help. The trip was a dream come true for me.
The Sacre Coeur studio property was such a surprise! Although compact in size, the unit was thoughtfully organized and furnished, and very clean. The view of the cemetery covered with fresh snow was hauntingly spectacular with a view of the top of the Sacre Coeur lit up at night. The proximity to the cemetery made this neighborhood especially quiet. The location was within walking distance of some fantastic restaurants--La Famille, Le Miroir, etc.--and of course close to the Metro. Definitely felt away from the tourist element. Our greeter was very cheerful and helpful. This was our first experience with Haven in Paris and will definitely not be our last.
The apartment was super. We will use your service again. Seriously a great and affordable way to travel with a family.
Roger, the greeter, was great. A fountain of information. He was truly an asset to our Paris experience. The apartment was clean and well appointed. The all clad pots made me feel like I was at home.
The Sacre Coeur studio apartment is a marvelous gem. I could imagine returning year after year to "my" home in Paris. All the amenities and comforts of home plus the privilege of living Parisienne! We enjoyed many new experiences here this trip but the one that I will be talking about is returning from the market with ingredients for dinner that I cooked for us right here in Paris! Very comfortable. A great experience!
Roger (our greeter) was most gracious, meeting us within 10 minutes of our arrival (even though we got in nearly an hour early)! The apartment was in great shape. Very clean. Everything was in good working order. We had no complaints & were quite comfortable! Thank you!
Mark and I love the Sacre Coeur studio apartment. We are most comfortable here and are very impressed with the thought that went into equipping the apartment with top quality items. Laurance was very helpful and ensured we were well looked after. Already we are talking about returning next year (maybe with another couple so will need a bigger apartment). Thanks for the great customer service.
Dealing with the Haven in Paris team from first booking the Sacre Coeur studio over the Internet to the day we checked out was such a pleasure. The process that HIP have set up (i.e., explicit instructions on what to do when you reach Paris, having someone greet you at the unit and as your contact during your stay) is very reassuring. The Pilleux studio is quite small so it best suits 2 people, but it's set up extremely well and has top quality fittings, All Clad pots and pans and instructions on how to work the appliances. They even provide all the staples you would need for cooking. One of the best things was having the computer with Internet access not to mention the bouquet of fresh flowers and bottle of wine on arrival! We look forward to using HIP again for our next visit to France.
The Sacre Coeur studio is well-situated and we enjoyed our stay. It was really nice to stay off the main tourist beat and the studio was very quiet at night, which for us was a major plus as we live in the country usually. Our neighbours were very friendly, including a small ginger kitten. Montmartre (away from Pigalle) is lovely with good shops. Our greeter Laurence kindly waited until 1am to let us in as my plane was delayed. Loredana arrived exactly on time for our departure and was most helpful. We did not use drivers etc recommended as they were not available (I tried to book David I think) because of our late arrival which was a pity as it would have saved a lot of stress as I found on arrival the CDG fast train was not running. The studio is very well-equipped, the Murphy bed very comfortable and the cleaner fantastic. We enjoyed having our own little place to return to.
This was my second stay at the Sacre Coeur studio apartment which I like to refer to as my Paris home. I absolutely love the apartment and the neighborhood is great. Loredana my greeter was very helpful. When I had some friends over for dinner at the apartment they fell in love with it too. My friend Jordan said it was the most efficient use of space he had ever seen. I miss Paris dearly and can't wait to return next summer.
We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary in Paris, and enjoyed this little respite from the city very much. From the warm welcome the first morning, through the week, it was comfortable and had everything we could need (umbrellas). Next time we plan to bringing our daughters and rent at Haven in Paris' larger apartments so we can all enjoy living like a Parisian for a little while! thank you for providing such a friendly, clean, hospitable stay!
We were warmly welcomed to the charming and updated, Sacre Coeur studio apartment which we found to be comfortable, very clean and well-appointed (lots of towels, umbrellas,nice bedding,guide books,binder of helpful info,etc,). There was a nice bottle of wine, flowers,a gorgeous view of a graveyard and the Sacre Coeur out our windows, and a comfy bed to sleep off the jet- lag! Once you figure out the Metro (not very difficult)it proved to be a great spot to start out from everyday. Not a lot going on in the neighborhood food-wise in the evening,so plan to eat out before heading "home" for the night. We really enjoyed staying at the apartment and will do so again as it is more private and an unique experience not found in a hotel.
I wanted a real Parisian experience and being an interior designer I am a little bit fussy about where I live ( even if it is for just a few days ). We loved our little apartment and even more special was the way our neighbours greeted us in French ( ie we didn't obviously stand out as tourists ).
I truly thank you for such a wonderful place to rest after walking Paris - I felt as if I actually lived in Paris every time I punched in the black gate code - I also appreciated the sunshine you arranged this past week! What a treat! The Sacre Coeur studio apartment was very well stocked - I was quite surprised & pleased with all the amenieties! Au revoir & merci beaucoup!
Your attention to detail is superb. In the apartment was soap in the shower, wonderful thick towels, condiments, coffee, really just about everything needed. The murphy bed was easy and very comfortable. The view was outstanding. And I loved the neighborhood. The metro was close as were great shops. Just a wonderful overall experience. Merci beucoup! I also appreciate the way you ordered up sunshine for the entire week!
Sunrises over the Sacre Coeur, cats lurking on ancient graves below our window, spring birds singing to us each morning... This was what it should feel like to stay in Paris. No hotel full of tourists, no luggage carts or maids invading the room each morning! We loved our stay with Haven in Paris. We saw the Paris that Renoir painted - a beautiful, quiet corner, where friends laugh and drink and enjoy the joie de vivre. The apartment was parfait! We loved the amenities, the privacy and the location. We really couldn't have asked for more. Thank you for such a wonderful stay!
The Studio was larger than we had pictured and the view was better than we could have imagined! Everything was clean, well stocked, and worked as expected, though a comment on HIP mentioned umbrellas and there were none. (it rained 2 days during our trip). HIP communicated very well which was probably the most important factor of all, especially during the booking process and greeter confirmation. NOTE from Haven in Paris - We have taken note and there will be an umbrella in the flat from now on.
This is a nice little apartment. I love the view of Sacre Coeur and the Montmartre cemetery. HiP does not scrimp on the amenities even though this apartment belongs to the budget end. I discovered my new favorite tea - thanks to the pantry in this apartment. I'll drink only Mariage Frères tea from now on (I have bought two tins back home). Loredana, my greeter, is most helpful. She even managed to come down to the apartment to meet me in record time after knowing that my flight landed an hour early. I love the HiP experience, and I'm already plotting for my return to Paris.
A note of thanks for a wonderful stay at the Sacre Coeur studio apartment. We enjoyed the super clean, comfortable, well stocked apartment. The property even exceeded my expectations with respect to how well stocked it was with linens, dishes etc. and my expectations for cleanliness. It was absolutely spotless. It has every necessary amenity one would need for daily life. The view is wonderful, the building very quiet, the only thing is the four flights up, but, then again, it helped with the wonderful food we ate. We went to La Maison and I went to La Mascott which were recommend on the Haven website. La Maison was fantastic. Loredana is a great asset as the greeter, contact person in case of questions etc. She was there immediately when we called with questions. She led me through all necessary instructions to operate the appliances, computer, TV etc. Her outgoing personality and competence makes her perfect for the job. I so enjoyed meeting her! I have one suggestions with respect to towel bars; I looked around for a place that one might install a bar to hang wet bath towels. Another suggestion is to put knobs on the cupboards to make them easier to open. I know this kind of ruins the overall look, but it would help. NOTE FROM HIP - We will look into your suggestions!
Ben and I made it back to the states last night and we are already missing Paris! We will miss this sweet little apartment. We loved the sunshine in the mornings and the lit-up Sacre-Cœur at nights. We wanted to say thank you for care you put into making our stay a pleasant one. All the care you put into the reservation process and the apartment itself is evident. We will definitely recommend your company to friends and family. The Sacre Coeur studio apartment was a very comfortable place with everything we needed. Thanks a lot!!!
We were both very pleased with the apartment. We would definitely stay at the Sacre Coeur studio apartment again. What a wonderful place! Perfect neighborhood. Gorgeous view. I appreciated the fact that you offer a relatively inexpensive apartment choice that, though small, still adheres to the high standard we have experienced from HiP in the past. We booked this trip as a quick getaway where we did not want to spend a lot of money and for that Pilleux was perfect. We had a wonderful time.
Process to rent property exceptional nothing too much trouble. Apartment beautiful to come home to every day and enhanced our stay in Paris. Mary our greeter was lovely and very helpful. My friend and I (we are late 40's early 50's) did manage the stairs - they are beautiful. Both beds very comfortable and all facilities wonderful. Views amazing and felt like living amongst locals.
We had an amazing experience - everything from the ease of booking to the friendly and accessible greeter to the simply beautiful apartment. We fell in the love with MonteMarte and really enjoyed having a true Parisian experience. The neighborhood bakeries and shops were all wonderful and not all touristy. And the apartment was easy to access from the Metro. This apartment was advertised as "budget" friendly, but it was bigger and cleaner than the more expensive hotels we stayed at for other nights of our trip. We are already planning our return! Only thing we'd appreciate is an alarm clock (which we needed only for the last day to leave for the airport!).
We loved our vacation to Paris and your apartment was such a nice place to stay in. We were constantly surprised over how quiet it would be even with the windows open. The building has so much character and the neighbourhood is fantastic. The 18th and the 19th were new experiences for us. Thank you again for having us.
I absolutely loved the Sacre Coeur studio apartment -- it is rare for places to live up to pictures and this one did and more. Clean, efficient space as well as cozy with a fantastic shower and views! Other points to highlight -- it was a real treat for me and my family that I was able to call home so easily and clearly. I was obsessed with the shower -- it was better than mine at home. I love the lighting in the kitchen. Having a hair dryer was above and beyond! Thank you so much for all your hard work with your properties. It is obvious that you all take great care in choosing, maintaining and improving the places you manage. It is also clear that your company shares a love of Paris and does a fabulous job making travelers feel welcome and encouraged to explore. I can't wait for my next trip and will certainly be recommending this company to everyone I know. It was too good to be true.
My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Sacre Coeur studio apartment. The flat was cozy and contained everything necessary to have a live-in Paris experience. The location of the flat, just on the outskirts of the city, offered the opportunity for us to feel residential and integrated with the Parisians. The property has a villa feel that satisfies the romantic notion of Paris. The permanent residents of the building were very kind and greeted us warmly each time we passed each other. Metro stops, bakeries, cafes, and markets are all within easy walking distance. The Haven staff were very helpful and easy to deal with; they assisted us in numerous ways and were always pleased to offer help or information. Overall, the Haven played a large role in making our Paris trip a highly enjoyable and stress-free vacation.
The apartment was small and compact but met our needs exactly. It was a block away from the subway with a 10 minute ride to the sites on the Seine. Down the street were superb vegetable/fruit/cheese/meat stores with very friendly vendors. There was a small grocery a few doors down for basics. We used a driver as recommended on the site to pick us up at the airport. He was very soliticious pointing out all the sites and things to do and in particular the local wine store. Our greeter Mary showed us the basics and kept in touch to assure that we were managing ok. A very pleasant holiday.
Thank you for providing us with a Haven in Paris! The place is wonderful: we loved the light, the view, the cleverness with which the limited space was made to feel not crowded at all, the thoughtful and tasteful layout, the free phone and the Mac (just like home) the generous supplies (including that delicious bottle of wine), the pleasant and efficient business arrangement, and - of course - Didier, our super-caring greeter. When we decide to return to Paris we will be in touch again, to be sure. PS: Note to Didier our greeter - Thank you again for being there and for welcoming us so perfectly. This, like so many other things, show how caring and efficient you and the Haven in Paris team work. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at that beautiful place - I think this will not be the only time! By the way: taking the #54 bus to Gare du Nord (3rd stop there!) and then the train to CDG works perfectly. It may take a bit longer than the Metro but there are no connections to make and NO STAIRS - and most folks will have a transport Pass (Paris Visite) anyhow. You may recommend that to other guests.
I just returned from a wonderful 5 week stay at the Sacre Coeur studio apartment. The studio has absolutely everything you need and I will definitely want to stay there again when I return to Paris. Didier the greeter was so helpful and just great to talk to. I just can't say enough good things about my stay there. I have already strongly recommended Haven in Paris to friends who are planning trips to Paris.
We have just returned to New Zealand after an amazing 2 month holiday which began with 1 month at Sacre Coeur studio apartment in Monmartre. The studio was just wonderful, very small but so well planned and laid out that it didnt feel small. The view is of Sacre Couer is magnificent, the facilities are perfect and the greeter, Didier, was an absolute gem. The 67 step climb to the Apartment allowed us to indulge in as many french pastries as we desired so we didnt find it difficult at all. The locals were great. We got to know the local Boucherie, Boulangerie and Supermarche staff well - they laughed when they saw us coming as our french was very limited and they thought we were very funny!! Also the French people in general were so very helpful and if we were standing in the street looking at a map someone would always approach us and try to help with directions. we loved every minute of our stay in Paris and our little studio and would return again in a heart beat.
I wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful time and everything with the property was perfect. Our greeter was very helpful and a gracious host. We were very sad to have to leave Paris and look forward to our next trip there and will definitely use your services again and heartily recommend them to our friends and co-workers. Thanks to your team for the great experience.
I would highly recommend Haven in Paris. The personnel were extremely professional, timely in communications, and accommodating. The reservation process which we did online, was extremely easy. We really enjoyed staying in an apartment vs. a hotel, as it gave us a glimpse of what it's like to live in Paris. We also found it was more economical than a hotel - overall the rates were better and we had the ability to eat some meals 'at home'. The Pilleux apartment is a small but efficient space, which was all we needed to rest our heads at the end of each day. The apartment is located in a quiet mews and overlooks the Montmartre Cemetery, which is an amazing landmark to see everyday. The apartment has all the amenities you would expect - bathroom, shower, washer, and Internet access. The apartment is a 4 story walk up, so renters should be fit enough to walk the stairs. Both of our Greeters were prompt, polite and helpful. Both were very willing to help us w/our extremely heavy luggage, which Roger and I appreciated. We were pleasantly surprised by the message we received on our last day, asking if your company could help w/travel arrangements back to the train station. We weren't aware that this was a service you provided, so we spent some time searching for a taxi stand near the apartment. So, needless to say, we were pleasantly surprised by the offer to arrange a taxi for us. That was a big help - and a time saver for us. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We will gladly recommend Haven in Paris to any of our friends and family and will use them again if we're lucky enough to travel to Paris again.
The Sacre Coeur studio is perfect. The studio has the best shower in Paris and a kitchen equipped for everything from a quick breakfast to an attempt at a three course dinner. The location is far from the tourist crowd but close enough to a metro stop to get anywhere quickly. The neighbors were friendly, and everyone from Haven in Paris was responsive and helpful. The whole experience was wonderful. I would recommend it to anyone for a quick trip or an extended stay.
I spent a three month vacation in Paris, living in the Pilleux-Sacre Coeur studio. My experience with the property and with Haven in Paris could not have been better. The studio has been built out and appointed with care and thoughtfullness bordering on obsession. Even though the space is only nineteen square meters, it never felt cramped. And anytime I needed anything, from a food processor to a hair dryer, I had only to go looking through the many cabinets to find that it had been provided. To top it all off, the view out over Montmartre onto Sacre Coeur is really something. The people associated with Haven in Paris helped to make the experience. Everyone I dealt with was not just helpful and professional but genuinely friendly. I wound up attending several all afternoon brunches at the home of the owner of HIP and the home of the greeter who settled me into the apartment. My experience with HIP was one of those rare experiences where all expectations were exceeded.
I loved my stay at the Sacre Coeur studio apartment. This cute studio is compact, yet provides more than enough space to sleep, cook, dine, and relax in comfort. The apartment is sunny and cheery, and we felt comfortable as soon as we set down our bags. It is perfect for a romantic getaway or even a restorative solitary escape. I loved coming "home" every evening to savour a glass of wine and the amazing view of the Montmartre cemetery and the Sacre Couer. The location is truly Parisian and was a welcome break from cookie-cutter hotels. Hopefully this first visit will not be my last. I will return as soon as I can!
Having just stayed in the Sacre Coeur studio apartment it feels like I discovered a mini hidden gem in Paris! Although small, the apartment is a marvel of space and style. We actually cooked and entertained 9 people there! After all the guests left, we just pulled down the ingenious bed from the wall and the room transformed into a bedroom. Set against the backdrop of green from the Montmartre cemetery, we found it quite peaceful and tranquil. And the shower is fantastic – a real “rain” showerhead, so rare in Paris! It was really wonderful thank you so much Erica and Alain.
I arrived in Paris worried about staying in a studio that is smaller than my bedroom at home. However, as soon as I walked in and saw how well planned out the apartment was, I knew it would be just fine. I have stayed in many apartments in France, and this was by far the best thought out. The shower is large and relaxing (and has a view!). The fully equipped kitchen made it a pleasure to shop and cook in the apartment, and there was even enough space to make a Mexican feast with friends! It was a very quiet, romantic place to stay, and the reflection on Sacre Coeur and the hillside at sunset was breathtaking - I took photos almost every night. Having unlimited internet and phone made it easy to keep in touch with people back in the U.S., and I felt like I really had my own little home in Paris. When I come back, I hope it will be to the same apartment! For a cozy and pleasant stay in Paris, you can't do any better.
A friend and I stayed at the Sacre Coeur studio for two weeks and had the most blissful time there. The apartment is small but perfectly comfortable with a decked out kitchen and free calls home. The most incredible part is the view: overlooking the Montmartre cemetery and over the trees to the tippy top of Paris, Le Sacre Coeur. In the morning we were woken up bathed in Parisian light. I can't imagine a more perfect apartment in Paris exists.
