Stay in the heart of Paris, This apartment is on the very chic and desirable Ile Saint-Louis, on the river Seine and next to Ile de la Cité and Notre-Dame. It is the most beautiful and central location in Paris. Ile Saint-Louis is an upscale neighborhood, one of the most prestigious in Paris, where you have quirky shops and restaurants, bakeries, food stores and clothes stores. You can walk everywhere from here; to museums including the Louvre and Musee D’Orsay, Pompidou Centre and Palais Royal. You are a quick stroll from the Marais, place des Vosges, Jardin Tuileries, Concorde and Champs Elysées. On the other side of Ile Saint Louis you have the Latin Quarter, Jardins du Luxembourg and Saint-Germain des Prés just a leisurely stroll away. There is a boat stop about three minutes walk from the apartment and the famous bus tours can be caught by Notre Dame which is about a five minute walk away.
There is ‘Paris plage’ just across the Seine during summer, starting mid July. This is great for children and teenagers as there are outdoor concerts and cafes and a large swimming pool.
This charming apartment is a beautifully decorated in one of the 'Hotel Particulars” on Quai Bourbon of Ile Saint Louis on the ground floor. The location is undoubtly one of the most convenient and safest in Paris. There is hardly any need for public transport or taxis as the main attractions are within walking distance.
The apartment is situated in a building which is more than 400 years old yet has all modern conveniences. The apartment is in the second courtyard of the building so there is not a single noise from the street. It is very quiet and peaceful, great for getting over jetlag!
There are two door codes and a guardian so you are very safe.

I'm dance teacher (ballet and modern'jazz). i'm living in ile st louis 13 years ago at 1mn for the appartment. I travelling a lot but i like come back in this place. When i visited this appartment 'i fall in love '!!!!
I did renovation it's a little more modern but more confortable.
The Owner purchased this apartment in 2011
Because it's best place in paris to live or to spend vacation. It's so quiet and in the center of the town and for me it was dream to buy in 'ile saint louis'. And it's so charming and so 'frenchy'
And to come for airports there is RER B St Michel exit 5 parvis notre Dame (less than an hour ) and 10 mn by foot for the appartment. It's very easy to go everywhere in paris after .
Why this apartment verses a hotel for a trip to Paris?
Hotels in Paris are expensive and a 4 star hotel in Paris is closer to a 3 star hotel on international standards also with 60 million tourists pouring into Paris a year the service and quality is not always as one would expect.
There are two hotels on the island, Le Lutece and Jeu de Paume where double rooms start at around 250€. I have seen these rooms and they are quite small.
Also eating out 3 times a day can become very expensive. By having a base where you can prepare and eat quick inexpensive meals (baguette and cheese!) can mean huge savings. There are three bakeries located within 30 seconds of the apartment and a supermarket 5 minutes walk away, plus an out door food market close by on Wednesdays and Saturdays. There is also a fromagery (cheese monger) on the island and one of Paris best butchers. Water is drinkable from the tap, however the apartment comes with a couple of bottles of mineral water, milk tea and coffee.
If you want the beds made-up and apartment cleaned every morning this can be arranged at an extra cost of 30 Euros a day.
This was a perfect location! We were a family of 4 with 2 teenage girls staying in winter.
The apartment is separated over 3 levels and was really warm and cosy in the cold Paris winter.
It is close to everything you need, the metro, Paris attractions, restaurants, cafes, groceries, etc.
The apartment has everything you need from maps to cooking and cleaning supplies.
Isabel was fantastic to deal with and really helped us out while we were in Paris.
I wouldn't hesitate staying there again.
This was a perfect location! The immediate area has so much to offer ~ shops, restaurants, cafes, groceries, wine store, cheese shop, bakeries, etc. and is close to many attractions and sites. The photos and description provided are accurate. In addition, the apartment is well equipped and Isabel adds lovely, welcoming touches. She promptly answers questions and offers many helpful ideas and suggestions. Isabel was wonderful to work with from start to finish.
The location is the best you will find. It is centrally located. The place was clean and well kept. Isabel was very helpful with everything. The subway is just across the bridge right outside the door. The bakery is just around the corner, great to get a baguette any time you need one. A nice grocery store is about 3 blocks away. Ile Sainte Louis is the place you want to be. We had family in France and they said this place was really nice. The area is quite and very picturesqe. Walking around the area is very nice with plenty of small shops and more cafe's that you would ever need. Crepe shops and ice cream shops are plentyful and very good. Notre-Dame is also very close along with the lock bridge,if you don't know what that is look it up. If you have a chance to stay here you won't regret it.
Beautiful find on Ile Saint Louis - great location and yet quiet refuge in Paris. This apartment was beautifully decorated, creatively designed and well stocked with everything we needed for our short weekend stay in Paris. Every detail of the apartment has been well thought out - beautiful use of space, natural lighting and mirrors. Probably not the best for elderly visitors but perfect for a family of 4 -- or in our case a three generation trip to Paris (grandmother, mother and granddaughter). The owner has thought of everything and the guide tips for Paris were perfect as well. Highly recommend and would return!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this apartment! The apartment was clean and well stocked with anything you might want/need (dish soap, towels, etc) and the owner was very responsive to questions. The wifi worked perfectly. We absolutely loved being on Ile Saint Louis near the food and tourist locations. The one thing I would say is that I wouldn't recommend this apartment for families with young children. Our stay was great with well behaved 5 and 6 year olds, but I wouldn't trust them alone on the spiral staircases. This apartment is idea for families with older children. Because of the stairs to the bedrooms and bathroom, not a great apartment for elderly folks who don't get around well either. That said, we LOVED the apartment and would definitely stay here again. The owner also arranged a taxi back to the airport at the end of our stay which was very helpful.
My family (me/wife/ 2 boys 20 &16) visited this apartment. The website protrayal of the apartment is completely accurate. The location is exactly what I was looking and hoping for and the location completely met my very high expectations. Four people were tight, but cleary doable. As a coutesy to the neighbors, one does not use the air conditoining after 10 pm. Not an issue for us in early June, but during a hot spell in deep summer this could be an issue. One needs a PayPal account to book this apartment and it is not that big of a deal to set one up, but it took some elapsed time while I was fretting over getting the unit reserved. However, if location is a large objective for you (as it was for me) this is literally the best possible location.
