photoThe apartment

The St. Pierre apartment was one of three flats on the fifth floor (in American lingo, sixth floor) of an elevator building between Sacré-Coeur and the Anvers Métro stop. (The park and steps leading up to the Basilica were less than half a block from our entrance door on the Rue de Steinkerque.)

From the fifth-floor landing, our door opened into a long hallway that led past a small kitchen and a toilet room. To the right of the hall was a living room with a balcony overlooking the street; to the left were a large dining room/library and--just beyond--a bedroom, both with views toward Sacré-Coeur. Between the dining room and living room, a door led into the bathroom with its sink and sabot bathtub/shower stall.

Although the St. Pierre apartment had only one bedroom, the living room could easily have doubled as a second bedroom, thanks to a door and a double sofa bed. (The sofa in the dining room can be used to accommodate a fifth guest.) The apartment felt very spacious, with a great expanse of polished wood floors and plenty of light from the many windows. We fell in love with the apartment immediately, although we probably would have added a small sink to the toilet room if we'd been the owners.
