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.

Fantastic location, secure building comfortable easy access

Ile St Louis is the best location in Paris, near all city activities and sight seeing while retaining a quaint and quiet feel. Great restaurants nearby, kitchen well equipped if you want to eat in....a week went by quickly and we wish we were still there.

This was a perfect place to stay! The location is so central that we were able to walk everywhere! With a very short walk in one direction we would be in Marais; the opposite direction and we would be in the latin quarter. Easy to get to the metro. We took the train to and from the airport and that was simple with the directions given by the owner of the apartment.

But the location was more than just convenient. Our days started with opening those gorgeous windows to hear the bells of Notre Dame and ended with nightly strolls along the river to get "home". The beauty of this location never stopped thrilling us.

The apartment itself is charming! Quiet neighbors, safe and secure building. Our greeter was helpful and made herself available throughout our stay. The apartment is modern, clean and the bed is very comfortable! The owner has thought of every detail.... even has a flashlight on the key toggle!

Calm and convenient

Perfect location on Ile St Louis. Very good bed and extra sofa bed. Washer/dryer. A very tall person might find the loft a bit snug but fine for me. Was greeted as arranged. Restaurant recs: les fous de l'ile, au bascou, chez janou

This apartment was super cleaned and well equipped. The owner and the greeter were very communicative and full of information. You cannot have picked a better location with a 3 minute beautiful river walk to Norte Dame. A very peaceful part of Paris.

Perfectly appointed, great location.

  • 5 of 5

Three of us ladies shared this apartment for a week and we really enjoyed our stay! The apartment had everything we needed to feel like we had a home away from home. It's centrally located on the Isle and an easy walk to so many attractions and metro stops. We frequently cooked meals and in the the kitchen and found it had everything we needed. The beds were comfy and it was a treat to have a tub in the bathroom. Art was so easy to work with (even when I goofed the dates of our initial reservation), and his greeter Francois was very nice, helpful, and responsive. If we ever return to Paris, I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!

Quaint Paris apartment

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is spacious for two and well-appointed. The location is very good with quick access to the Metro. The fact that it is so close to Notre Dame makes it perfect for night-time strolls along the Seine. It was particularly nice to have access to English TV channels as we had been without news for two weeks. Art's greeter, Tanya, was very helpful. We will certainly consider staying here again on our next trip to Paris.

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.
