Brand new, modern, safe and secure apartment on the legendary Ile Saint Louis, just 20 metres from the beautiful and prestigious Quai Bethune – the prettiest Quai in the whole of Paris. The apartment is cozy, well located, on the ground floor, and has all new appliances.
Ideal for a single person or a couple and a great (and less expensive!) alternative to a hotel room.
This is the perfect place to experience Paris and is an ideal long-term renting solution. Great if you are in Paris for 4 weeks to 6 months.
Hotels on the island start so this is a very inexpensive opportunity to experience the Ile Saint Louis life. This apartment is like our spare bedroom, we live close by and have included many personal pieces of furniture and decorations and we want like-minded people to take care of this apartment, as it is indeed a very special little place.
The apartment is on the ground floor of a lovely building with a courtyard. It's approximately 27m2 split over two levels, so living/kitchen is 14m2 with bedroom/bathroom 13m2. It is on a quiet back street so there is no noise from traffic. It is a very safe building as there is a guardian who lives on the ground floor too. There is a door code to get in and the front door is very secure. This is a residential building of high standing with larger family apartments above.
The apartment consists of a living room with a small kitchen and then on the next floor up there is a double bed and a bathroom and WC. The apartment is very compact and the price reflects this. The kitchen is fully equipped with all new appliances. There is a fridge, elements, extractor fan, dishwasher, microwave/oven, a washing machine and dryer, plus kettle and toaster.
Upstairs is the bedroom with a double bed (160cms) with a small wardrobe for hanging clothes and shelves. There are also drawers under the bed. There is a hairdryer, a heated towel rail and all towels are provided. The WC is separate from the bathroom. The bathroom opens onto the bedroom and is full ventilated. Please see photos.
The staircase up to the bedroom is small and slightly stepper than a standard one; please look at photos as this may not be suitable for elderly people or a small child.
Ile Saint Louis is the most central location in Paris as well as being one of the most beautiful. Being on the island enables you to experience the real Parisian bohemian life. You will find yourself amongst retired war veterans, philosophers, struggling artists and billionaires. Ile Saint Louis is one of the most prettiest and safest areas in Paris, and after living in Paris for over 10 would never ever consider living anywhere else. Ile saint Louis is known for its specialty boutiques and picturesque streets plus location wise everything is on your door step, starting with Notre Dame, a 4 minute walk, the famous Marais area an 8 minute walk, the Louvre a gorgeous 20 minute stroll plus Musee D’Orsay, Pompidou Centre and Palais Royal, place des Vosges, Jardin des Tuileries, Concorde and Champs Elysées are just close by on foot. On the other side of Ile Saint Louis you have the Latin Quarter, Jardins du Luxembourg, Saint-Germain and le Jardin des Plantes.
We have a car service we can offer. We have been using Chan and his services ourselves for years, he has a lovely big Mercedes with air-condition. He can do pick ups and drop offs to the airport which is great as you can avoid the taxi queue plus grumpy taxi drivers! He will be there to greet you and help with luggage and speaks English.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us for more information. Cleaning and bed linen is included in the rate. We will meet you at the apartment to show you around and we live just around the corner so are easily contactable for advice. For stays of 2 weeks and longer we will provide a cleaning lady once a week at no extra charge.
This compact but cozy apartment will allow you to enjoy what Paris has to offer, its location is so central and ‘island life’ is like no other to be experienced anywhere else in the world.
