• An Exceptional and Truly Unique Setting : Almost completely unchanged from Louis XIII’s reign, this authentic and prestigious isle remains a perfect example of the late French Renaissance period. The Ile Saint Louis is a self-contained oasis in the middle of the river Seine, home to quality restaurants and food shops including an excellent and well known cheese shop and butcher and the very famous Berthillon ice cream! Moments from your apartment, on the neighboring Ile de la Cité, is the stunning Notre Dame church, while the Latin Quarter is just across the bridge onto the left bank. To your north explore on foot the whole of the charming Marais neighborhood. With the antique shops in the Village Saint Paul, the lovely and original clothes shops along rue des Francs Bourgeois and all the many sites, museums and galleries in the area, our Ile Saint Louis apartment is the perfect location for touring Paris.
The Metro Pont-Marie is a few minutes walk just across the bridge from your apartment.
This apartment is ideally located and perfectly appointed for four. The website is accurate in its description, but cannot offer the perspective of just how good it really is. You walk out through the courtyard to the entry portal on the street and there is the Seine and just ahead is Notre Dame. The Pont Marie Metro is just across the bridge. Restaurants and shops fill the streets of the Ile Saint Louis. Because the owners have prepared you so well with their "black book" of details and recommendations, you can explore the area with confidence. The owner offered any help that we needed and always promptly returned our calls. We were met at the apartment on time and given fresh flowers and a bottle of wine as a welcome to our home in Paris. This was our third stay in Paris and it was unanimous that it was the best. I am not sure how the owners arranged for perfect weather, but they did. We will be back, I am sure, and we are recommending the apartment to all our friends so long as they don't want our week.
