About Art Collins

My name is Art, I live full time in Manhattan and Fire Island. I have been in NY for 23 years, 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 in the USA.

Art Collins purchased this apartment in 1990

Why Art Collins chose 4th Arrondissement Pompidou Le Marais

Walking around on the island during the sunset, is the most beautiful and peaceful place to end the day. There are a number of romanic sunset viewing spots to watch the sun go down over the Seine and the Cathedral, Notre Dame.

What makes this apartment unique

The unique situation about this apartment is that it is located on a very quiet courtyard 1st 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.

small basic apt, clean, great location

  • 4 of 5

The apt is not fancy, but had all we needed. Tanya the greeter, was delightful, and Art the owner, very helpful and friendly, answering all questions we had before we arrived and called to make sure we got in ok. Being on Ile St. Louis was wonderful as I had stayed on the island before. Convenient to sights, bakeries, small shops, food markets, restaurants, and metros. Near Notre Dame. The building and apt are old, as are all places on the island, and Art is working on the apt to update and improve it. Having a washer and dryer was an added plus. TV, free phone, and internet also included.

Apartment on Ile Saint Louis

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with my wife and 19 year old son for 3 days and it couldn't have been more ideal. We were welcomed by the greeter on time and she explained everything thoroughly with written reference all layed out very clearly. She was very nice.

It's in such a great location, we wanted for nothing. So many cafes, creperies, restaruants shops markets. We spent hours just on the island Saint Louis. Easy access to the Metro and cabs and easy walking distance of everything and anything you might want to see or do.

Location being the key for me, the apartment itself was perfect clean and comfy.

Thanks Art

Great property and location .

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful location on the Isle de St. Louis. Quiet, peaceful, secure building. The island has lovely restaurants, boulangeries and brasseries. Art, the owner was easy to work with for reservations and Tanya the greeter was very helpful, meeting us at the front door and showing us how everything worked. Apt. cozy with upstairs loft, very comfy bed but not room to stand up. Close to metro and easily accessible. Great time.

Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week on Île Saint-Louis! The apartment was perfect for my husband and me. All the necessities, and then some. The sleeping loft was comfortable. The washer and dryer were awesome to have. The folks on the island are very friendly, and everything you could need is literally around the corner... cafés, brasseries, boulangeries, frommageries, chocolate shops, patisseries... Art and François were very attentive and responsive to questions. They worked to help us have an absolutely wonderful vacation. We would recommend this lovely little place in a heartbeat. We hope to visit again someday!

Map

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 river.

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.
