RIVER FRONT BUILDING / 37M2 LARGE STUDIO APT / ILE-SAINT-LOUIS

4th Arrondissement Pompidou Le Marais Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio, 1 Bedroom + Convertible Bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-4)

This large studio is on one of the two islands in the very center of Paris. This apartment building was built in 1643 on the Seine. This is one of the best old world addresses in Paris.

The 369 year old building is on the Seine, and the apartment with a courtyard view, a total of 47m2. The studio is a good size, 37m2 downstairs and separate large comfortable 10m2 sleeping loft upstairs. The main room has 11 ft ceilings, tall windows with open wooden beams. Unlike most apartments this size, the bedroom has a large separate loft upstairs away from the living area. The loft has a low ceiling clearance but is easy to get around in this large area with plenty of storage for your luggage and can sleep three.

As you exit the building you're on the Seine once again. The river is beautiful and tranquil at all times of the year with the riverboats coming and going. A very special area of Paris.

The pictures enclosed tell all.

Please go to TripAdvisor and look at the map for this area for hotels. Click it and see the prices for this area and the size of room you really get for a hotel and their location is not on the river.

About Art Collins

My name is Art, I live full time in Manhattan and Fire Island and have been in NY for 19 years now, originally from San Diego, CA. I work hard to make this apartment nice. I am a finish carpenter and work on all my properties. I have other island properties to let if interested.

Art Collins purchased this studio in 1990

Why Art Collins chose 4th Arrondissement Pompidou Le Marais

To be on the island and walk on the river walk during the sunset, is the most beautiful place to end the day.

What makes this studio unique

The unique situation about this apartment is that it is located on a very quiet courtyard 2nd floor. Once you exit the building your on the tree lined Seine. The butcher, bakery, cheese shop, wine shop, ATM, & convenience store, all on the island. One does not need to leave the island for daily supplies. The metro at Pont Marie, #7 line pink, just across the bridge, along with the large grocery store at St. Paul, is very close.

Paris Parfait!

  • 5 of 5
The flat was a superb fit for the 2 of us, both retired teachers. The 1 flight of stairs up to the quite spacious studio was no problem, as we packed simply, each with just a roller bag carry on. That was all that was needed for our week there, as the flat has a washing machine and a separate dryer, a rarity for European flats. The queen size bed up the few stairs to the loft was super comfy, as was the couch on the main level that converts to a double sized bed. The Metro station is a few blocks away. There are many small cafes, bakeries, and shops along the way between the flat and the station where you can obtain just about anything you would need. As mentioned by previous reviewers, the flat is fully equipped and very secure and quiet in addition to being lovely.
Outside is the crown jewel of the flat - a most lovely neighborhood of 400 year old buildings, located on L’Isle St. Louis, in the center of the river Seine, just a 2 block walk to the bridge that leads to L’Isle de la Cite where Notre Dame Cathedral is located. Across from Notre Dame is the Batobus dock, a river taxi service that goes between the Louvre, Musee D’Orsay, Eiffel Tower, etc., which is a fun alternative to the Metro, as you can see Paris as you glide by on the river.
Working with owner Art was seamless. We received very detailed information in the instructions his greeter emailed prior to our departure, and quick to response to our email questions. Art even called us mid-week at the flat to see how things were going there and ask if we had any concerns! He has thought of every small detail in creating the perfect lovely home away from home. We felt like Parisians rather than tourists there. I will assuredly stay there the next time I visit Paris!

Great location!

We had a wonderful time on the Ile St. Louis. The location was perfect- so close to everything. Would definitely recommend this apartment. It was comfortable, quiet, and well equipped.

Location, Location, Location!

This apartment is centrally located in Paris on the Ile Saint-Louis. It is in a secure and charming 17th century building, on the first floor (one flight up), and very quiet. The Seine is just opposite the front door of the apartment building. If you like to walk you can get almost anywhere from here. We walked to the Latin Quarter, Eiffel Tower, Louvre, Musee d’Orsay, the Luxembourg Gardens, Le Bon Marche department store, the Marais, the Bastille and many other places. Access to and from the CDG airport is easy via the RER B train. For ice cream lovers, Berthillons is one of the best ice cream makers in the world and they are located just a few blocks away!

Art was an outstanding landlord. Before we booked, he called us to make sure that we would be able to use the upstairs sleeping loft. We had looked at the pictures and told him that, if we couldn’t, we would use the downstairs futon - which is what we did. The futon was very comfortable for our week-long stay. His agent in Paris, Tanya, was very good at meeting us and showing us how everything in the apartment worked.

The apartment was well maintained, comfortable, roomy for two people and well equipped. There was a washer and dryer, refrigerator, cooktop, loads of cooking, serving and eating utensils, a very good television, Internet access and a phone that let you call land lines in the U.S. and Canada at no charge. Art has put together the most thorough book I have seen documenting almost everything you would want to know about the apartment, including how to call the English language telephone number for the G7 Taxi company. There are also descriptions of local stores and shops so you know where to go to buy what you need and all are just a short distance from the apartment.

Public transportation is very easy to access from here, so if you don’t walk as much as we do it is not a problem to easily get anywhere in Paris and the outlying neighborhoods.

I must say that my wife and I really enjoyed our stay here and will definitely book again on our next trip to Paris.

Thank you, Art, for helping to make our trip so very memorable!

Paris-Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
This Paris apartment is as lovely as the pictures make it seem! The location cannot be improved on -- quiet because it is not on the street but tucked back in a courtyard, and yet right on the banks of the Seine in the wonderful "village" of Ile-Saint-Louis with shops and restaurants just steps away (including everything you could want to eat or drink, or bring home to enjoy). You can walk to Notre Dame, or across the Pont Marie into the Marais, or to the metro to go farther afield in Paris. The apartment itself is charming -- an upstairs loft for sleeping and a downstairs sofa bed that belies the name (it's very very comfortable!). There are lots of linens, and pillows, and every sort of kitchen ware one could want -- including champagne flutes as well as wine glasses. There's even a washer and dryer which was a delight for us as we were on a long trip and needed it. The owner was in personal contact during booking as well as while we were there even though he lives in the states. His local representative was accommodating and pleasant. I was there with my two adult children and we all managed to find a spot to retreat to after a long day of walking and sight-seeing, or to read or play cards. Although it was grey and wintery in Paris, it was warm and cozy in the apartment, and we enjoyed it immensely!

Location is the Best!

  • 4 of 5
My wife and I spent 4 nights in the apartment and are impressed by the location being in easy walking distance to most sights of the Metro. The Il-St Louis feels very safe and is well insulated from the Paris traffic noise. Most of the needs for groceries, bakery wine, etc. are on the Ile within a 5 minute walk. Ms. Miller met us at the apartment and was very helpful and when we had a minor issue with the internet was available by the phone in the apartment. The apartment with the bed in a loft was comfortable. The kitchen and carpet are adequate and could be up dated which is the reason for not giving the apartment a 5 star. Art the owner lives in New York and Ms. Miller is English so there were no language issues which can be very important. We enjoyed staying here and would recommend the property as an excellent value.

The building is on the Seine facing the Marais in the very centre of Paris. This location is very close to the Pont Marie bridge over the Seine.

There is also a beautiful tree lined pedestrian water front walk right in front of the building.

The island is away from the hustle of Paris street traffic. This is a very prime location for quiet walks around the island.
