BRIGHT AND SUNNY ILE ST LOUIS STUDIO

4th Arrondissement Pompidou Le Marais Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2)

Firstly, here is a link, which you will need to copy and paste to your browser, to a 3D Virtual Tour of our apartment - http://www.vrbo.com/global/siteFrame.aspx?l=442317&k=2

In a traditional Ile St Louis building (like this one, very few have lifts but the beautiful wooden and iron stairs is typical), the apartment is on the third floor above Monsieur Lefranc’s cremerie and Madame Martin’s boulangerie. The chimes of the church of Ile St Louis’s bells from can be heard from across the street through the 3 south facing windows.

Accommodation

Beautifully but simply decorated and furnished to highlight its traditional features, this renovated 30m2 studio has style and character. It consists of a large living room and a smart, well equipped, kitchen with breakfast counter and stools. A very high quality sofa bed provides the same comfort as a normal double bed. The modern bathroom has an excellent shower. If you want to work or just check your emails, there is a stylish console desk and afterwards you can flop in the cool, orange Fatboy (very large beanbag!).

Above all this apartment offers great value for money for it's standard of accommodation and brilliant location.

Bonjour tout le monde (hello everybody),

Je m’appel (my name is) Liam (Guillaume en Francais) and I am the owner of this apartment we call LOUIS02. I am Irish and live with my family in Dublin, but my work takes us regularly to Paris and I love to immerse myself in the city’s daily life.

Staying in a traditional apartment as opposed to a hotel, even for a short stay, has always enabled us to get the most from our visits to Paris. This encouraged us to buy several studios on the wonderful Ile St Louis.

In my Blog for which i can send you a link, I share my own and my family's time and experiences in Paris to provide useful news and information for business and leisure travellers to the City of Lights.

You can also consult Feedback provided by previous guests and, when you have stayed in one of our apartments, provide your own feedback either directly to the Blog or by contacting me.

I look forward to doing my best to answer any of your questions about Paris and our apartments.

A bientot (see you soon),

Liam

Orla Lenehan purchased this apartment in 2005

2-person studio with timber beams, south facing French windows, minimalist decoration and furnishings and a smart kitchen corner. Great location, great price.

Wake up to the sound of the early morning church bells, stand at the French window looking across at the clock tower and realise you are on a little island in the Seine in the heart of Paris, then pop downstairs to Madame Martins' boulangerie for a baguette or croissant to have with your cafe ....

A wonderful 10 day stay on Ile saint Louis

Dear Liam We just returned from a wonderful 10 day stay in your Louis02 Isle St. Louis studio. The location was perfect and we can't imagine staying in any other area when we have the chance to return. We were central to everything yet the street is charming and quiet at night. Rue St Louis had wonderful restaurants, boulangeries, wine shops, ice cream shops, wine shops, and boutiques. The apartment was spacious enough for two and the bed was very comfortable, as well as the large pillows provided. We really appreciated the fan, as we hit a heat wave while we there. We really had most of what we needed for our stay. The only thing we could suggest is to equip the kitchen with wine glasses and to provide a blanket to take out for a picnic. The river is so close and our favorite thing at night was to take a bottle of wine out to the river and watch the boats go by. Many thanks to Liam and his staff for being so professional, helpful and responsive. Looking forward to our return! Warm regards,

We loved staying in an apartment on Ile Saint Louis

We stayed in your apartment Louis02 recently. We really enjoyed our visit to Paris which was helped by the fact that we loved staying in an Apartment on Ile Saint Louis. Staying in Ile Saint-Louis you experience traditional Parisian Life which is very much removed from the ‘hustle and bustle’ of a capital city. Most of the Buildings seem to be occupied by Residents……even the local Primary School is just down the Street! Although the Apartment is located in a Period Building the Apartment itself is very modern, spacious and comfortable. We definitely hope to stay there again.

Just home from an amazing month on the wonderful Ile Saint Louis! All our needs were catered for and we would go back in a second to stay in here. The owner was particularly helpful in helping us with all our questions about the apartment and the city. Thank you Liam, we will be returning hopefully very soon! Róisín and Róisín

... this most perfect apartment ...

  • Submitted: Sep 11, 2013

Bonjour Liam,
I will be leaving this most perfect apartment, tomorrow. It has been tremendous, living on the Ile.
I wanted to let you know that I could not get the tall white lamp to turn on, which was fine - plenty of light otherwise. It must have been something I had missed.
Merci beaucoup,
Kelly

Ile St Louis is one of the most enchanting places to stay in Paris and Paris by numbers can tell you now that as soon as you arrive you will find it hard to resist staying local for the duration of your visit and living side by side with the 3,000 or so inhabitants of this unique island on the Seine. The island has a village feel about it and is delightfully unspoilt with it’s mixture of handsome 17th century architecture, narrow streets and magnificent views from its tree-lined quays and berges (banks) where you can picnic and watch the boats go by.

Running lengthwise along the island is it’s main street, rue Saint Louis en l’Ile. It boasts a baroque church, refined boutiques and gift shops, old-fashioned bistros and brasseries, chocolate, ice cream, gourmet food and wine shops, a florist, bakeries, two amazing cheese shops and many little “salons de thés”. But of course here you are also at the geographical centre of Paris and from the island can walk, cycle the Velib, ride the Metro or hop on and off the Batobus on the Seine to reach all the city's landmarks.

Begin your sightseeing with Notre Dame (Ile de la Cité is linked to Ile St Louis by pedestrian bridge) and your shopping with rue de Rivoli, both of which are just a 10 minute walk away. Walk for a little longer and you will reach Saint Chapelle, Bastille, the Pompidou Centre , the Louvre and the Tuileries Gardens. For night life just pop across the bridges from the island to the the Latin Quarter (south) and the Marais (north).

RER B will take you direct from CDG and Orly airports to Notre Dame-Saint Michel and the island is serviced by three Metro stations: Pont Marie (line 7), St Paul (line 1) and Cité (line 4)
