We decided rather than paying exorbitant prices for a postage stamp hotel room that we’d try airbnb, an apartment in Montmartre looked like a good bet and we’ve ended up renting a place in 71 Rue Lamark (just down from the metro) for a week. The flat is renovated and fully furnished with the kitchen window opening out into a quiet courtyard and a view of a wild garden and adjoining apartments.
Brigitte our hostess has been very helpful, providing us with maps, suggestions and even umbrellas! as well as answering all our Paris newbie questions. If you’re looking for a place to stay I can’t recommend Au calme à Montmartre and Brigitte enough.
Merci Beaucoup, Brigitte.
