A Paris Apartment

Ours, actually. Located in the 18th arrondissement, a few blocks east of the center of Montmartre and only one block from the metro: it was inexpensive and suited our needs perfectly. I found it through Airbnb, which is my new go-to source for travel accommodation. We didn't spend much time there (sleeping, mostly), but I couldn't be more in love with its understated charm. The juliet window/balcony was my very favorite feature--especially at night, when the stars seemed to waltz, as if calling with a reminder that everything surrounding us positively sparkled.

  1. Oh the joy of windows that open sideways. I miss them so much! You can actually pop your head and more out, without a fear of getting a head concussion.....

  5. what an awesome apartment! It must have made it seem like you were "living" in france instead of just being a tourist. Which I think is super important.

  9. Airbnb, you say? Yup, I'll definitely be using them in the future! Especially if I can land such a sweet place. It's lovely! And so Parisian too.

  11. That second photo is gor-geous! I love the idea of staying in an apartment like this, sounds like you got the full Paris experience!

    Oh, and I can't remember what the place I stayed at was called because it was a couple years ago + it was so last minute. We ended up changing our accommodations at the very last minute (while in Paris), but I'll definitely have to mention it when I (finally) get around to my Paris travel post!
