winds down to the Seine and
stops at the Louvre before
continuing past the Ile de la
Cite to the Hotel de Ville.
Finally, it crosses the Ile St-
Louis before winding
through the Latin Quarter.  
The Montmartrobus is a
small electric bus that winds
delightfully up and around
Four additional lines leave
around Place de Clichy,
about a 10-minute walk
from the apartment. Take
the 68 bus south on a direct
route to the Opéra Garnier,
across the river and to a stop
that drops you within yards
of Musée d’Orsay. Hop on
the 95 bus and hop off at the
Louvre .
The 30 bus will take
you west along Parc de
Monceau before stopping at
the edge of the Arc de
Triomphe. A bit farther
south, the 30 takes you to
Trocadero near the Eiffel
Meet the Owners
This bright and airy retreat is
owned by Marvin & Trish
who retired five years ago
and traveled the world. They
finally settled in Paris,
refreshed the flat entirely
extensively, use it as their
primary residence. They
splurged on some very
special rosewood furniture
and hope to share the
apartment with those who
will love and appreciate it as
much as they do. They
welcome you into there
home and hope you come to
love Montmartre and their
very special quartier

This is a wonderful
apartment for families with
or without children.  The
neighbors will greet you with
a friendly “bonjour”. The
immediate neighborhood of
Abbesses is filled with
families using the local parks
and the beautiful Parisian
carousel just around the
corner in the Place
Abbesses. Or take a 20-
minute walk to the glorious
and gigantic Parc Monceau
near the edge of the 18th.
You'll find a kids' play area
to rival any you've seen in
US parks or elsewhere.
The neighborhood (located
in Paris' 18th
arrondissement) is known as
Les Abbesses and has a
historical village-like
atmosphere where you will
find lively outdoor markets
and hidden quiet streets.
You'll find everything Paris
is known for and more in
this “village in a city”;
boulangeries – nine close by
– fromageries, cozy
neighborhood restaurants
and outdoor cafés, adorable
boutiques and galleries, all
within a few minutes walk.
Cinema 28, a classic movie
theater designed by Jean
Cocteau is a real treat.
Explore the butte with its
many lanes and stairways.
Extensive music collection
There is a full stereo system
built into the computer with
an extensive collection of
over 100 hours of music.  
While focused on classical a
wide selection of pop – both
French and other –  show
tunes, etc.
14 rue Houdon
All of Paris is literally at
your feet!
The apartment is located
between two distinct and
very special neighborhoods
or “quartiers”
Montmartre, specifically
the quartier of Abbesses is
just up the street.  Walk up
to the corner.  You can go
in any direction and its
Go to your left for all of
our wonderful
neighborhood shops and
cafés; the bank and the
post office. After exploring
the epicieries, fromageries,
boulangeries, boucheries
and the many cafés on rue
des Abbesses, turn left onto
rue Lepic for even more.  
If you have seen the
wonderful quintessential
French film “Amelie” you
will recognize many of the
local sights.  The area is
one of magic at all times:
on Saturdays when it seems
everyone in Montmartre is
shopping; Sundays when
the streets are closed to
traffic and French
accordion music wafts out
from the cafés; indeed at
anytime.  Sit in the cafés
and watch the passing
A good movie?  Studio 28
at 10 rue Tholoze, just off
rue des Abbesses is a real
treat.  All the films are
shown in the original format
with French subtitles when
needed.  The theater was
designed by Jean Cocteau
and is the oldest continually
operating cinema in Paris.  
If you don’t want to stand
in line, just go to the café
inside and have a drink or a
pastry.  They will wave you
into the theater when the
film starts. http://www.

Below and parallel to rue
des Abbesses, stretching
from rue Lepic back to our
own rue Houdon is the
small lane, rue Véron.  It’s
a bit of a secret, with its
small cafés, bars, shops and
ateliers.  Don’t miss it.  It’s
especially in character late
on a misty night when the
cobble stones glow and the
“ladies” of the night come

Go straight will take you up
to the top of the Butte
Montmartre and the
famous Basilque du Sacre-
Coeur. Wander the rues!  

Turn right and in a short
while you will be in the
“tissues” area where the
colorful shops sell fabrics
of all kinds – and for some
reason Middle Eastern belly
dancing costumes.  Beyond
is the Goutte d’O.r  This
fascinating area, the
location of many of Zola’s
nineteenth century novels is
largely populated by
immigrants from France’s
former African colonies.

One block to the east is rue
des Martyrs.  This is the
rue that St. Denis marched
in the third century carrying
his own head!  It is still one
of the most colorful rues in
