Quiet apartment near Montmartre, PARIS, France

Our apartment is in a peaceful building with windows overlooking private courtyards in the heart of Paris.

The 9th arrondissement has become quite 'chic' ('bobo' in French) with a great deal new restaurant and stores. The foot of Montmartre is also just a 10-minute walk. However, the neighbourhood remains quiet and residential. It is walking distance from Gare du Nord and Gare du L'Est.

Our apartment is 73 square meters on the 3rd floor of a Haussmannian building: 1 master bedroom and 1 bedroom with two adult-sized mezzanine beds.

Master bedroom with queen-sized bed, large flatscreen TV/DVD, shower, two small private sinks Master bathroom with bathtub/shower Living room Laundry area with washer/dryer Kitchen, equipped with dishwasher Wifi (and use of Apple computer if needed), Elevator.

Our Neighbourhood

Nearest Airport: CDG (especially easy with a direct RER at Gare du Nord within walking distance), Orly -

We are in a quiet, residential neighbourhood located in the heart of Paris, just a few minutes from Montmartre, and a short walk from Gare de L'Est and Gare du Nord (Eurostar station, first stop from RER high-speed metro coming from Charles-de Gaulle Airport).

A 20-minute walk (and a 5-minute bus ride from right under our apartment!) to Printemps, Galleries Lafayette (Christmas window decorations)... and yet nestled away from the tourist scene with several parks only a few blocks away.
Closest métros: Cadet, Poissionière, Anvers

Some nice bus routes nearby:
- 85 bus (2 blocks away) stops at Grand Boulevards, passes right by the Louvre, then pont neuf (where one gets on the bateaux mouches), then over the seine to place St Michel to arrive at the Luxembourg gardens...
-42 bus (bus stop downstairs - normal bus ticket) passes by the Grands Magasins (Printemps, Galleries Lafayette ), then Opéra, then Concorde, the Champs-Elysées, the Tour Eiffel...
