Ile de la Cite is like village within the city. The apartment is a few hundred meters from Notre Dame and Hotel de Ville. The apartment is well appointed, with a kitchen enabling guests to self cater and prepare their own meals using the goodies from boulangeries and boucheries nearby. Very clean with a washing machine and all the amenities of home. We loved walking everywhere, try some good bistros, and enjoying Berthillon ice cream for dessert. The metros Cite or Pont Marie are super close, so all of Paris is within easy reach. I would recommend this property for anyone wanting to experience life as a Parisian for a few days.
