A Gem in Montmartre
The apartment is very pleasant, compact but well stocked and laid out. Everything you need for a comfortable stay is provided, including a great library of resource books to help you plan your daily adventures. Suggestions and tips are generously offered by the owner, Laurie, so that you can get the most out of your holiday. Situated conveniently between two metro stations, the apartment is steps away from a vibrant neighborhood that is especially a treat for cooks and those who like to eat: great butchers, fishmongers, produce, and, of course, award-winning boulangeries - bakeries. As a family of four (two girls, 8 & 11, were happy to share the very nice sofabed), we found this a great place to stay in Paris.

All of Paris at your feet
Well-maintained, well-appointed Montmartre one bedroom with well-thought out amenities including internet connection. Close to 2 Metro lines and the Best Baguette in Paris (winner, 2010). Perfect size for the two of us, apt could sleep 4 (2 on the sofa bed). Laurie's notebook of suggestions/instructions as well as her pre-arrival support made our visit smooth and lovely. What we liked least: that eventually we had to leave...

New Year in Paris
We had a great experience at this apartment. The location of this apartment is second to none. Montmarte feels like a village with loads of fabulous shops and places to get a tasty bite. Anvers metro station is a two minute walk and is a very convient way to get around the city. We stayed there for five days with our kids and they had a ball. The highlight was spending new years eve at the Sacre Coeur and then being able to walk down the hill and straight into our beds at the end of it. Overall a great experience and a great service.

We Love This Flat!
We have stayed in Laurie and Owen's Paris flat three times over the past six years. Generally a week to 2 weeks at a time. Our most recent visit was Christmas 2009. Our family now considers this apartment home! Each time we have stayed in the flat, we were met by a wonderful local agent who supplied us with a typical french welcome. Flowers, cheese, bread, wine. After our long flights, we were thrilled to have someone take care of us. The flat is on the 4th floor (5th US) and is at the rear of the building, so much quieter than other flats which are situated on the street. The building is typical french, six stories high and built in the mid to late 1800's. The interior is well maintained with a security door and even an elevator! The unit is beautifully furnished and maintained. It has 1 bedroom and a sofa sleeper in the living room. The sofa is a special model so it feels as a bed, not a sleeper. Our party included husband, wife and 2 boys (term used loosely as they are 13 and 21). There is plenty of room, even in the winter! All the windows are operable. It is wonderful to have the true light and air. The kitchen is compact, but fully functional. We mostly eat in because we love to shop for fresh food in Paris and try different cuisines. Markets are close by. Laurie and Owen's book in the bookcase is a wealth of information about markets and restaurants. You feel as if someone is guiding you over the whole of Montmartre. The building is situated close to 2 metro stops (Anver and Abbesses). It is also near the funicular at Sacre Coeur. I can't think of a negative. As you can see we love Laurie and Owen's place and we plan to stay there again!

A lovely spot in Montmartre!
I have stayed in this Montmartre apartment several times & I just love it. You will find everything you need in this clean, bright space including a well-appointed kitchen, guidebooks, and even local restaurant recommendations. It is located just a short walk from the Abbesses metro station,(Amelie's metro!), in a lively neighborhood with many boutique shops and restaurants. I feel like I have found my own petit appartement on the butte of this beautiful city.
