About Alina Ventura
I fell in love with Paris when I was 18 and came to study Law at Nanterre University, leaving Switzerland where I was raised.
Years after, as I modeled around the world, leaving my Saint-Germain-des-Prés apartment early in the morning, the taxi drives to the airport, would take me across the bridge from the Left Bank to the Right Bank, through the Island. Living in the Ile Saint-Louis was absolutely out of my reach then, but it always was my fantasy. I was in awe of the impressionist paintings of Monet representing the Seine in the morning and the bridges. The pink-grey lights of dawn, the golden illumination at night, triggered an intense sense of beauty, peace, serenity and elegance.
Years after, when we found this dream place, it had been owned by the same Parisian lady, for over 50 years ( Paula received it as a wedding present from her father when she was twenty one). We fell in love with her, and her place. Needless to say it was like awakening the Sleeping Beauty. It needed to come to modern life, while preserving its original 'cachet'.
It was an immense privilege and a great joy to give a second life to this rare and full of charm haven, and I must say that sharing it with our lovely guests and friends has also been a great privilege and a joy.
Alina Ventura purchased this apartment in 1999
Why Alina Ventura chose 4th Arrondissement Pompidou Le Marais
Our love for this garden, this enchanting haven, in the middle of this dream Island...Paris and love, the best combination in the world!!!! The location in not the least of the conveniences and charm of this unique place on the Island.
What makes this apartment unique
Whether seating in the dining-room, or in the living-room, or lying in bed, we always enjoy the serenity of the place. We read in peace and silence. When friends stop by, we seat in the garden and sip a cocktail or have tea in the afternoon while listening to Edith Piaf 'La Vie en Rose'. When we want to go to museums or shopping we just ride our bikes to the Place des Vosges or to Musée Beaubourg, or go to Saint-Germain-des-Prés. It's like two minutes from everything that represents Paris to us.
