About Budé 1

I am Nicolas, married to Caroline. We are in our 30' and parents of twins baby boys of 3 years and a 4 years old little girl. I lived in the US at Austin TX (one of my best experience), in 2001 and loved to help my friends discovering France and Paris. I have some close family living in CA near Monterey and SF area.

A couple of years after being back to France, we decided with my wife to buy 2 places on the Ile Saint Louis (VRBO #168257 and VRBO#299432). I rapidly gets outstanding reviews and I decided to help friends to manage some selected other outstanding properties with a single guideline : welcoming guest who want to have their 'home away' experience in Paris.

My main activity is to be General Counsel working in the field of the French Start-up industry. With those apartments, I am really doing what I love to do : helping guests to have a magic experience of Paris with the most charming places in the best locations of Paris.

I am confident that your experience of Paris at home will be a sucess !

Budé 1 purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Budé 1 chose 4th Arrondissement Pompidou Le Marais

Location, Location, Location.

It's very simple : it's the best and most exclusive place of Paris.

What makes this apartment unique

Because there is no other place like Ile Saint Louis, even Le Marais or Saint Germain des près are not as magic as Ile Saint Louis. This is a privilege to live there.

So Exclusive !

Guestbook comments from the owner

Yesterday, one of my futur leaseholder asked me if I could be able to provide a guest comment. And I have send my own comment as the owner of the place !! Why ? Simply because I have been myself a guest of this appartment. And I found it so charming, cosy, and well rebuilt that I decided with my wife to buy it a couple of weeks ago. Simply because when I get in, I feel very well in it. The position and the Ile Saint Louis is a magic area to discover Paris not like a simple tourist. The walks along la Seine river with the view on the most beautiful monuments is magic(like Notre Dame and more). I would be happy to share this unique place with people who could appreciate to stay outside and hotel, even if I wish to provide the best service to make your trip a success ! Hope to see you soon. Nicolas

Fabulous Studio

  • 5 of 5

This studio is a wonderful treasure. It was described accurately and the pictures are accurate, as well. No unpleasant surprises! The location cannot be beat. You are in the middle of everything, yet feel removed from the hustle and bustle on quaint Rue Bude. We were concerned whether or not it would be noisy, but the windows are so great they keep any noise out. We slept late every morning as the mattress is amazing. With the cozy kitchen, comfy bed, washer/dryer, and lovely bathroom, this apartment is so wonderful you want to keep it a secret!

Three generations

  • 5 of 5

What can I possibly add to the ecstatic recommendations given this little spot of heaven, the best location in all of Paris? Rue Bude is a very quiet one block street ending at the Seine in one direction, a very busy little street in the other, with charming shops, a grocer, a boulangerie and cafes all only two blocks to the bridge taking you to Notre Dame. No need for taxis, most of Paris is within walking distance or by the metro. Grandmother, daughter and teenage granddaughter made this our home for one week, wishing that we could have remained for a month. The apartment is charming The description of the amenities provided was accurate, including a washer and dryer, a complete little kitchen and the bed and cot, which one opened at night,were more comfortable than ours at home! Our teenager loved the bathroom with its modern shower. We easily made many of our meals, the groceries, wine and bread purchased just around the corner The owner, whose English is perfect, could not have been more helpful. Having seen other studio apartments in Paris, none can come near in comparison.

Sweet little apartment

  • 4 of 5

We rented the studio for 2 weeks in May. The apartment was lovely. Nice big modern windows on the street and a small window at the other end at the kitchen sink for a little extra light. The washer/ dryer was a great feature. There was a drip coffee maker and a toaster.

The sofa bed was comfortable and easy to lift in and out. My only suggestion would be to take out some of the furniture to create a bit more space. When the sofa bed was out, it was a tight squeeze.

Nicolas was a pleasure to deal with.

Paris Treasure right out your door.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay on the Ile de St. Louis was perfect in every way. The apartment was in the best location to enjoy the treasures of Paris, all with walking distance. Hardly ever used the metro pass. The neighborhood on the Ile so perfectly charming and Parisienne with the outdoor cafes, boutiques, amazing glacé, and all in the shadow of the Notre Dame. The accommodations in the apartment met all our expectations and more. Roomy bathroom, convenience of washer and dryer, kitchen to prepare meals with items bought from delectable bucherie, boulangerie, creamerie. Quiet street and quiet building. The owner made check in and check out easy, as he was most accomodating. Can't imagine a better place to stay, it is MY Paris address for any occasion.

Sisters taking over Paris for the first time!

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I visited Paris for the first time on October 17th and were very happy staying at this clean cozy Parisian studio. Perfect for 2 people, it comes with all amenities and a very spacious bathroom, Internet and you can make phone calls home from the Studio's phone. On the counter you will find a book with information on places to eat, owner's family pictures and an English phone number to call for a Taxi.To get to the apartment you will need to go up a 20 steps spiral stair, it is a very easy climb. We took the RER B from the airport for $10 Euros and were at our destination in less than 30 minutes, the studio is only a 10 minute walk from Saint Michel station ( make sure you pack light, stairs at the station are narrow and quite few), feel free to roll your suitcases into the neighborhood, it is not a big deal. Notre-Dame just a few blocks away and the beautiful Seine river a block away. Nicolas the owner is a very pleasant man and very attentive, he will answer any question very graceful. This beautiful neighborhood is extremely quiet at night and during the morning you could walk to Café and Bakeries, there is a local market near by where you can buy what you need if you wish to make breakfast at home or to buy a wine bottle. We bought water at the local store since it is super expensive at the tourist site. As you step out of the building to the left ( right on the corner) you will find an exquisite gelato place. We had a wonderful time in Paris and will stay at this Studio again.

Superlatives aren't adequate

  • 5 of 5

My daughter, her 16 year old daughter and I lived in the small beautiful apartment for 6 days. It was clean, contained everything one could possibly need, and when the beds were put up in the morning, there was adequate room for the 3 of us. Both the large studio couch and the single bed were firm and more comfortable than my own at home! The best location in all of Paris. Our landlord was available, and helpful at a moment's notice. When we return to Paris we will never stay anywhere but at 11 Rue Bude
