Review 4005: Owner, Montmartre Charm (#219995)


Review by Alaskaitaly from Italy

Studio apartment in Montmartre, Paris


September 2008, 2 weeks


Montmartre area - felt like living in a small village as all shops and necessities were very close. The apartment is in a cul-de-sac in a late 19th century building.

Nearby Amenities

Many shops - chocolate, cheese, wine, groceries - everything you would need or want. In addition, an excellent massage studio very close.

The House/Apartment

The apartment was peaceful. Charming decoration and felt like a home. The apartment offered a lot of light and great amenities.

Furnishings/Cleanliness/Living Areas

Everything was in excellent condition. The owner obviously had put a lot of thought into choosing pieces that would serve several functions while not cluttering the space. The apartment was extremely clean and well taken care of.

There was a table seating two but if I wanted friends over, there was a pull out table that seated four.


The double bed has a mattress made of vegetable latex - heavenly comfortable.

The bathroom was a full bath with tub.


Kitchen was great for this size of an apartment. Good quality. The owner uses the apartment as her home when she is in Paris - so there were items I normally do not find in vacation rentals that were really helpful to have.

Problems or Bonuses

I was surprised I liked this area as much as I did. I stay quite often in Paris. I've had vacation rental apartments in the 11th, 7th, 16th, 5th and a few in the 3rd.

I liked the feel of this area - the comfort and the energy - while having easy access to the rest of Paris whenever I wanted to explore.

Because I am traveling by myself and writing a great deal of the time, I am not so interested in a busy touristy area. I liked that this area gave me the sense of being a resident of Paris - not a tourist.

Agency and Representatives (and price)

The owner responded to my emails quickly, politely and with lots of helpful information on the area and the apartment. It was quite clear how much she loved her home and the area and wanted to share that with me.

I had no problems gaining access to the apartment. If anything, the advertising on VRBO did not do the place justice.

Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?

Yes, I would stay here again. Yes, I have recommended to my friends to stay in this apartment with no qualifications.
