“Lovely artistic apartment”

Reviewed 12 Apr 2014

Very comfortable 4 nights for 4 people despite the single bedroom (sofa-bed perfectly accommodating). Kitchen used every day without problem, and we ate whilst enjoying the quiet but lovely view of the street. Great situation, near La Butte de Montmartre and the Sacré Coeur, and easy to find from Abesses metro station. Lovely to know that this is the same building Picasso had his first Parisien apartement in, and the apartment itself felt wonderfully welcoming from arrival - very beautiful decoration. Extremely generous and personable hosts, offering us a very kind welcome and goodbye. We will be happy to return in the future, and highly recommend.

“Return trip to Paris”

Reviewed 8 Jun 2013

This was a return trip to Paris for my daughter and I (15 years after the first trip to celebrate her 30th birthday!). On our first trip we had stayed near the Eiffel Tower and it was lovely, but we had fallen in love with Monmartre. Also, the idea of an apartment and living in a neighborhood really appealed to us. The apartment turned out to be perfect! The shops, restaurants, cafes, grocers, metros all conveniently located. And it was wonderful to feel part of a see people coming and going to and from work and children to and from the nearby neighborhood school. A wonderful experience that I hope to repeat in the future. Also... Valeria and Jean-Yves were very gracious!

“Romantic stay in Paris”

Reviewed 26 May 2010

Nice apartment very close to Place du Tertre. It was very well equipped and logistically connected with any place by metro with a stop nearby. Very kind the owners and quite silent the street, to grant a good rest for the night. Picasso had his first laboratory right in this house and not far from there he created the cubism together with Modigliani and other famous painters.. You enjoy a romantic atmosphere and can jump into a bohemienne world just crossing the street. Sacre Coeur is very close to be reached by foot, "Boulangerie" and other different shops are also available. You could not ask for more...

“Comfortable stay”

Reviewed 23 Sep 2009

We stayed for a week in this comfortable apartment and had a wonderful time. It's quiet at night and feels very much like a family home, with lots of lovely books to look at. The food shops in Montmartre are fabulous so we ate at home most nights. Going to other parts of Paris from here is very easy and Montmartre has lots of interesting places to explore too. Great walks!

Top Montmartre was a wonderful venue for a week in Paris. The neighborhood was wonderful, full of energy and fun, close to transportation. The apartment was simple, comfortable, with all we needed. Free phone and WiFi was much appreciated. Our host was gracious and considerate. I will be back again.

“Excellent, all-around”

Reviewed 8 Oct 2008

Valeria, and her beautiful apartment with such an incredible view, couldn't be nicer! We had a lovely stay, Valeria was very helpful and honest, and we had absolutely no complaints. The building was beautiful, perfectly located, and very charming. I would love to spend months there! Thank you again. I could not recommend this apartment more highly.

“Quaint and Pretty House”

Reviewed 4 Aug 2008

We just spent a week in JY and Valerie's house in Montmartre. This was our first time in Paris - I must say the house was our haven for those eight days. Its a lovely house, with beautiful light and atmosphere. The windows look out into a pretty cobblestone street. The main Montmartre square and Sacre Coeur is just a few minutes away. Every day we walked around Montmartre we would find another fascinating and beautiful place. The hill is like a treasure house! The rooms are comfortable and homely, I did'nt once feel like I am not in my own house. The kitchen is well stocked and easy work in. JY and Valerie are exceptionally warm and friendly people. I would recommend this flat to my friends and to anyone else visiting Paris.
