Here, there, everywhere
Welcome to Rue Durantin, where you should expect the unexpected. From the ancient to the avant garde, it’s all here – Japanese dolls and Senegalese masks, ‘70s stools and an upright piano. Though for all its dazzling diversity, every object sits perfectly in its place. And the same can be said for the apartment itself. In the very heart of Montmatre, a five-minute walk from the tourist hotspots of the Sacré Coeur and the Place du Tertre, there’s a villagey atmosphere to this quiet neighbourhood, with daily markets on the Rues Lepic and des Martyrs, and all manner of friendly boutiques and bistros.
Rough and tumble
Your hosts are a family of four, she runs an agency while he’s in software. They’re a well-travelled lot who’ve a penchant for unusual souvenirs and a love of entertaining, with more than a few evenings ending in an epic battle of Babyfoot.
This and that
Exhilarating abstracts, brooding landscapes and sensual photography line the walls, while the furniture ranges from sleek leather couches to Jacobean chairs. The two children’s rooms have something of a Scandi feel, colour bursting from pillows, books and toys, while the stylish master bedroom is resplendent in rich burgundy. White and glossy turquoise give the kitchen a sunny appeal, and here you can dine at the funky Formica table beneath a shoal of shimmering sardines – should the buzzing eateries of Abbesses not take your fancy, that is.
Since the pictures were taken, the homeowner has replaced the small double bed in the second bedroom with a queen bed. In the third bedroom, the bunk beds have been replaced with two single beds, which can be set up together as a double bed. Please let us know when you book if you would like it prepared.
Please be aware that there is no guest storage space in the master bedroom, but there is a wardrobe available in the bathroom.
