Overview

About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

You will never forget your stay in this luxuriously appointed, utterly charming 'jewel box' of an apartment on the magical island of Ile St. Louis. The beauty of this Parisian pied-a-terre is exceeded only by its perfect location.

Juliette's 725 s.f. can accommodate from 1 - 6 people (5 adults, maximum) and is best suited for a romantic retreat, a 'girls' getaway, or a small family. With its 'open' floor plan, it does not provide absolute privacy; if that is what you require, please contact us and we may be able to offer alternative accommodations.

Originally constructed in 1652, renovations were overseen by an award-winning French movie set designer; virtually every element is custom, from the 17th century hardwood floors to the hand-painted Renaissance era beams and exposed stonework. Nestled between the Left Bank (Latin Quarter) and Right Bank (the hip Marais district), our little 'island on the Seine' enchants with its narrow, cobblestone-lined streets filled with cafes,art galleries, gourmet restaurants, patisseries, chocolatiers and elegant boutiques selling antiques, traditional produce and fine foods and flowers. The 'Ile' is also home to the world famous glacier (ice cream purveyor) Berthillon, nearby. It is a five-minute walk to Notre Dame, and a short Metro ride (or walk) to every major tourist attraction and shopping area. This picture-perfect location - a favorite of visiting Americans and Europeans -- is everything you've imagined Paris to be. You will feel exceedingly comfortable and safe in this very special neighborhood.

Upon entering, you will be embraced by Juliette's warmth and unique character, which was lovingly created by its former owner, the wife of a French Senator, who scoured the flea markets and villages around Paris to create the ambiance of 17th Century France. At the same time, the apartment boasts the latest, modern amenities -- from WiFi and high-end appliances to luxury linens and a spacious travertine American style shower -- to make your stay completely convenient and comfortable.

LOWER LEVEL

You'll enter a small foyer where an antique writing desk, equipped by a MAC desktop, WiFi printer, and travel guide filled bookcase is framed by another ten-foot window greenery-filled floor-to-ceiling French window; the perfect spot to pen a postcard or your Parisian memoirs. The adjacent downstairs bedroom features two beds - a double in an alcove flanked by two spacious wardrobes; a second twin bed with storage neatly tucked under stairs leads to a romantic, low-ceilinged upstairs loft.

The large living space is spacious yet warm, and filled with wonderful antiques. A 17th century ship captain's safe serves as a stand for a flat-screen TV, and an 18th century portrait graces an antique hearth with a working eco-friendly fireplace, which faces a comfortable daybed (which can accommodate a sixth guest). The space is illuminated by a sparkling crystal chandelier. A pretty dining table sits adjacent to a street-side ten foot classic French window. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to create perfect French cuisine, including a famous 'La Cornue' stove (the Rolls Royce of French cooking equipment), microwave, dishwasher (cleverly concealed in an antique hutch), a lovely buffet with marble-topped workspace, and a full complement of utensils, pots, pans, china and glassware. Cable television, DVD and CD player are accompanied by a selection of music and French-themed American movies to complete the ambiance. The lovely shower room features a spacious shower with classic French brass fixtures, crystal sconces and an antique chest/sink. The lavatory is in a separate room, with a unique ship captain's wash basin that complements the nautical theme. There is also a Miele washer/dryer.

THE ROMANTIC LOFT

You may not want to leave your cozy nest in the mezzanine loft, with a queen sized bed adjacent to an en suite bathroom featuring a wonderful Napoleonic era claw foot tub -- a perfect place to soak after a long day on the cobblestones. It also includes a sink and toilet. Please note that, while adding to the unique charm of this property, the low ceiling in the loft will require ducking for anyone of stature (over 5'5'); the loft is also open to the area below.

With its perfect central location and beautiful interior, updated with modern conveniences, this very special, historic apartment will make your experience in Paris all the more memorable. Juliette is a very special place from which to explore all the best that this magical city has to offer.

Please note: our nightly rate is for up to four guests; there is an additional $25 per night charge for additional guests to cover the cost of additional linens and cleaning. Our cancellation policy is 90 DAYS IN ADVANCE OF OCCUPANCY - VRBO/HomeAway doesn't allow this option in their system, but in our experience, since European travelers normally plan/book their vacations far in advance, this period of time is required in order to re-book our rental. Your 50% deposit (required to reserve dates) is fully refundable up to 90 days before the date you arrive; once the balance is paid the reservation is non-refundable. We will process any deposit refunds outside of the VRBO system. We do recommend trip insurance to protect against any unforeseen circumstances. While you may drop your bags as early as 10 am, check in time is 3 pm if another guest is checking out the morning of your arrival. Check-out is 10 am. Please keep these times in mind when make travel arrangements. We of course do our best to get you in as early as possible, but the only way to guarantee an early check in is to reserve the night prior to arrival.

Please let us know if you have any questions. We would love to welcome you to Juliette!

Utterly charming and well-appointed in central Paris

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent two weeks in Paris--our first time in Paris--staying at this lovely, clean, and charming Juliette apartment. We were amazed that you could hear no street noise at all with the windows closed. The beds were substantial and super comfortable. Lots of outlets for charging camera, etc. Very good water pressure and plenty of hot water in the 3 bathrooms (we used loft bathroom only once--for the great clawfoot tub--so soothing for tired tootsies--just watch your head with ceiling height below five feet, as the picture shows).

The location is more than perfect. Not only can you walk to many top places of interest e.g. Notre Dame), but you could actually never leave the island at all, if you liked, as it has plenty of stores, restaurants, grocery, boulangerie, pattiserie, etc. Of course one MUST leave the island for the Paris experience. The walk to the Pont Marie metro stop on right bank was very convenient. We took the metro frequently...very easy to use.

And the help and support of Michele and David made for an anxiety-free trip...always there to help before and during the trip. We had left a bag of purchases (art and clothes) at a restaurant in the Montmarte and David called them on our behalf to see if was still there more than a day later (when we finally remembered it) and it was! He communicated to them our plan to return the next day to retrieve it. All of Michele's advice is excellent and especially the idea to go to Café St. Regis if you arrive before check in time. Best Eggs Benedict in Paris (probably). We returned for breakfast a few more times (when not getting pastries from one of the three nearby shops).

Two recommendations to pass along--We recommend Les Ombres restaurant--a roof top location with sparkling view of the Eiffel Tower and the sunset and great food. And for the best hot chocolate (in the world, IMHO) go to Angelina's and order the Chocolate Chaud Africain. It is to die for. Flagship store is on Rue de Rivoli near the Louvre, but there is also an Angelina's inside the Louvre, Palace of Versailles, and Galeries Lafayette department store in the Opera district.

We appreciated having a dishwasher and a washer and dryer (two separate appliances) which worked extremely well. The apartment was exactly what we hoped for and more.

Perfect spot to enjoy Paris

  • 5 of 5

This is a great property and so fun to be in a historic building right in one of th oldest neighborhoods in Paris. Michelle was great and took care of everything we needed. We got great recommendations for food and shopping. It was extremely hot last week when we were there and the air conditioning worked just fine. Great shower and kitchen, very thoughtfully stocked. Really comfortable beds and great antique furniture. There were two of us and I can see how you could have a family but it would be tight. For us it was perfect!

The Place From Which to Visit Paris

  • 5 of 5

A charming apartment in the center of everything -- attractions, transportation, restaurants et al. Michelle Lollo, the property manager, was a terrific hostess - welcoming us, and providing priceless tips on places to go. How to get there and enjoy. Would certainly have Juliette on the top of our list of places to stay in Paris, when we return. Thank you. Merci.

Perfectly lovely apartment for 2 people in the most beautiful part of Paris - close to everything! The bed, bedding & bathrobe were fabulous..the kitchen had even a Nespresso machine with pods & tea, lovely dinnerware...free internet & phone calls...Michelle & Emil were there or on call when we needed anything! So how do you say perfect in French? Parfait!

Lovely Juliette

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a week at the lovely "Juliette" on Ile St. Louis in the center of Paris. Location is great, Ile St. Louis is like a little village in the center of the city, great shops, restaurants and boulangeries near by. Very good proximity to Norte Dame, Le Marais, Latin Quarter and Louvre. Apartment was everything we needed, beautifully decorated and clean. I would recommend this apartment to anyone seeking a taste of authentic Paris. Michelle was very prompt in replying to any questions or concerns we had. Merci Michelle!

Old world ambiance with 5 star comforts and beauty.

  • 5 of 5

We just came home from our Paris vacation and stayed at the Juliette. My husband and I were both in awe of this place. It is decorated so beautifully and comfortably we were amazed. As my husband said "you can't buy that kind of history ". Michelle and Allen have done a great job making this unique apartment feel authentic and at the same time making us feel like we were in a spa environment with the updated, gorgeous bathrooms. I would highly recommend this to friends and family that were traveling to Paris. Michelle gave us great ideas on where to eat, tours to take, walks, shopping, metro advice, etc. Everything we needed to know for a trip that took us to different places than the obvious hot spots. Even the travel books on her shelves about movie locations in Paris were fun to peruse while we ate our croissants and coffee in the morning before we took off for our day. Even had a few picnic dinners in the house because it was as fun to be there as in a restaurant. Last, location is excellent. You can walk to almost everything and the metro is an easy walk when we needed it. We hope to go back to Paris and would definitely stay there again.
