"Le Caulaincourt" - A bleu blanc rouge legend

Have you heard of Bleu, Blanc, Rouge?
The nostalgic (bleu), joyful (blanc), and romantic (rouge) aspects of Montmartre, the most visited village in the world, all have their place in this lovely 2 bedroom apartment overlooking the famous café Francoeur on one side, and a wooded courtyard on the other.
"Bleu, blanc, rouge" is also a reference to the famous trilogy by film maker Krzysztof Kieslowski. The secret of this apartment is that Kieslowski actually wrote the script for the trilogy, as well as the Double Vie de Véronique, during the period when he lived in this apartment.
Whether you feel the colors of the past in a present place or not, this is simple a delightful, peaceful apartment in which to enjoy Montmartre and Paris, either as two couples or a family.
Bleu Blanc Rouge are also, of course, the colors of the French flag, and this apartment will offer you an unforgettable French experience.

The 3rd floor (with an elevator) apartment is comprised of two separate bedrooms each with a double bed, a living and dining room adjoining a fully equipped kitchen, both with views over the wooded courtyard. There a single bathroom with shower, and a separate toilet.
The apartment is decorated in a joyful French-World fusion decorative style, with some objects reminiscent of travels to far-off land and others from the French countryside. The apartment has been renovated in February 2014, and all beds and furnishings are brand new.

The tree-lined and winding Rue Caulaincourt is a Montmartre mainstreet, loved by Parisians and tourists alike. On this street you will find plethora of irresistable Parisian shops, bakeries (one of the best in Paris just across the street), cafés and restaurants, and the access to the many stairs leading up to the top of Montmartre.

This apartment is located in a great neighbourhood- across the street from bakeries, a butcher and a cheese shop. The two bistros (beside and across the street) were very good and had great service. The apartment is easily reached using the metro line 4 (there is an elevator so dont ...

The three of us arrived at Caulaincourt for our three week escape in Paris. This quaint apartment in the heart of charming Montmartre was literally next door to some wonderful shops, cafes and restaurants. As close as the metro was, we found that taking the bus was a great way ...

Loved this 2 bedroom apartment from the minute we arrived. Location was convenient, apartment was spotlessly clean and tidy, the kitchen was well equipped (loved the coffee pod machine), and the decor was simple, elegant, and just, well, French. Oh we could have stayed for so much longer! Two couples ...

The apartment was clean and centrally located in a really cool area of Paris, Montmarte. As previous reviews have noted, the street is a little busy and there are several loud emergency vehicles running by at the wee hours of the night. Not a problem for heavy sleepers but could ...
