Why Roux dit Buisson chose Saint Georges
The Rue des Martyrs is located in the 9th arrondissement and is quite lively and active, with its famous food shops and other boutiques. It's a very fashionable neighbourhood in the centre of Paris at the base of the Montmartre Hill, boasting a diverse array of cafés, trendy restaurants, cinemas and theatres, and near the Galeries Lafayette and the Galeries du Printemps. See the New York Time's article about the Rue des Martyrs: On a Historic Street, One That Got Away. The neighbourhood is both trendy and authentic and has been getting better and better over the 25 years that we have lived here. Great restaurants, cafés, trendy designers, supermarkets and typical Parisian food stores (bakeries, patisseries, cheese stores, butchers, fishmongers, greengrocers, and more) are all available within walking distance on the Rue des Martyrs and Rue des Abbesses. The famous department stores, Printemps and the Galerie Lafayette, are close by and 4 metro lines stop close to the flat, which can take you anywhere in the city (10 minutes to the Louvres and Orsay museums).

Montmartre October 2019
This immaculate apartment was perfect for us: 4 senior siblings and 2 spouses. The kitchen is completely separate from the other rooms, so the “early birds” could gather and make coffee, etc without disturbing others. The stairs are an easy climb. Great neighborhood and easy access to multiple metro lines. Raphael greeted us upon arrival, carried our heavy bags upstairs, showed us around the apartment, and then took us for a quick walk around the neighborhood. He checked in with us often to see if we had any questions or needs. One of the best VRBOs I have stayed in and certainly the most responsive owner.
Superb flat in Montmartre
This is hands down the best VRBO we have ever had the pleasure of staying in. It’s BEAUTIFUL, well-maintained and spacious. The location could not be better. Everything is at your doorstep, shops, bakeries, restaurants, the Metro. The host is a lovely man who meticulously maintains his property, the art work is GORGEOUS! We were a group of 6 adults and there was plenty of room. Everyone in our group loved everything about this flat. You’d be silly to stay elsewhere.
Great flat in an amazing area!
Raphael is a wonderful host and Camille was there to welcome us! He showed us how everything worked when he checked us in and even took us on a walk around the block to identify the metro, market and other things we might want or need.
The flat is quite spacious for Europe with a full kitchen with dishwasher and washer. The neighborhood was amazing! Great shops, restaurantes, beautiful fruit at the fruit stands and even a Carousel for our grandson. It is clean and safe. The metro is quite close making it easy to get around and see the sights. Easy walk to Sacre Coeur. I would come back here again and again!
Thank you Raphael!
Thank you so much for your kind words! My daughter Camille and I are glad you and your lovely family enjoyed your stay.
Nicest apartment in five stays in Paris
More space and so accommodating than we have ever experienced. Raphael even gave us a quick walk around the neighborhood. Great food on Rue de Martyrs. Our advice is to plan your day such that you pick up take out walking up from the 7 Metro each night. There are literally a dozen fantastic places to grab food from and the huge apartment easily fit our family of three kids, and three adults. Father-in-law even got his own little room with a shower. Wow.
Wonderful apartment and host
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and Raphael was a wonderful host.
Thank you! Brandee and family were very sweet guests who left the flat in a perfect state. Would definitely host them again.
The flat is located on a private lane that gives onto the Rue de Martyrs (9th Arrondissement) and onto one of Paris' most chic neighbourhoods, South Pigaille, right by Montmartre, right in the centre of Paris. This means that you can reach any part of Paris very quickly using the Métro (subway). Most parts of the city are less than 15 minutes away, and can be reached by lines 12, 7, and 2.
However, the lane is only open to residents and is watched by a security guard, which makes it a very calm and pleasant area.
Some of the best restaurants, cafés, fashion boutiques, and services are just a short walk away on the Rue des Martyrs, Avenue Trudaine, or Rue des Abbesses.
The neighbourhood is also pleasant for couples or friends, as well as for families, thanks to its parks, toy stores, and activities.
