I'm Parisian working in the finance industry and have being living in this city for about 20 years.
I've spent the other part of my life living abroad, travelling worldwide for business or entertainment. Throughout my extensive traveller experience on all the continents, I had the opportunity to stay in some of the most renowned and exclusive hotels and places in the world, from the unique Atacama Desert resort in Chile, to fashionable and privileged Mayfair addresses or opulent maharadja castle in Radjastan.
When refurbishing this recently acquired apartment our goal was to make this place which benefited from a first class location on the Ile Saint Louis, a 5-star-hotel-suite like flat.
Decorated and furnished with personal items, mixing French antic with souvenir de voyages you will find here cosiness of a flat and functionality of a hotel suite.
Owner purchased this apartment in 2008
I've been living in Paris for some 20 years and Ile Saint Louis is really the essence of Paris to me.
I've been looking for years for an exclusive property in the centre of Paris without suffering from the trouble of a megapolis. I found it...
The isle is a retreat from the stress and motion of the city. In addition to its exclusive setting in Paris the Ile Saint Louis offers peaceful and romantic tree-shaded quays accessed by stairway and, of course, the views on the city. This attests to the fact that, despite its development, the island has not lost its original function as a place for people to gather and relax in company with the Seine.
The island has had many illustrious residents such as the poet Charles Baudelaire, physicist Marie Curie and philosopher Voltaire. In the 1920s it was a favorite haunt of Hemingway and more recently home of late President of France Georges Pompidou as well as, Foreign Affairs Minister Roland Dumas.
Today Ile Saint-Louis continues to be a very sought-after. It has become a privileged destination and those looking for a romantic visit or who are impassioned about history looking for an address with amazing cachet.
Exclusive location and amazing view
We stayed for four nights and enjoyed our trip very much. The flat is truly a luxury experience - full view on Montmartre and the Seine, great furniture, fully equipped kitchen.
The island is a real gem - great restaurants, bakeries etc. and in the flat, you find a full library of travel literature to explore Paris just like a local.
Came to Paris for my first time and stayed here as opposed to a hotel. What a great choice that was! The location was perfect with many restaurants and shops right around the corner.
The apartment is on the top floor of a 5 story building with secure access via two, locked, downstairs doors. The two windows look out onto the river and let in plenty of light. Everything was very clean and comfortable and had a great homey feeling.
Working with the owner was very easy and my deposit was promptly returned the day I left. I will absolutely stay here again.
The owners attention to detail was obvious. Automatic shades, a great washer/dryer, a good lift, sound retardant windows and a compact kitchen. Everything you could need. The apartment has even more charm than the pictures would indicate. Located in the very heart of Paris it could not be more convenient. Walk across Pont Marie to the Metro and the best coffee shop in Paris. The windows look out on the Seine and Quai de Bourbon, arguably the most beautiful street in the most beautiful city. Right on the Seine and yet quiet at night. Even our Parisian friends were impressed. This is without a doubt the best apartment we have rented anywhere. Thank You Pierre
the place was really great. i highly recommend it. And we had a wonderful time there. The rooms are light, relatively spacious for Paris, the furniture and bed comfortable. But there were some issues in terms of everything being crammed into a very small space (although both rooms had plenty of room and light). but the kitchen for instance -- a lot is crammed into one console and we did find ourselves hitting our heads with doors and stuff. and the bed is fitted into cutouts in the wall with bed "table" niches which were so narrow we were constantly knocking things off. the elevator-- and how wonderful to have an elevator to a high floor on Ile St. Louis, really rare and great not to have to climb flights. but it was really the smallest elevator i have ever seen. really only room for one person and a bag or two people with no bags. we are not big people but we often felt we were bumping into things. the toilet as well, just enough room to get in and out. adjacent bathroom not too bad in those terms, with nice fixtures, (oddly high sink and toilet, though) good shower.also, the view, is only amazing if you stand up and look down from the windows to see the Seine. seated it is still nice. some paris in the distance and a lot of sky. I only mention these things if you would be particularly bothered by them and not to raise expectations too high. We really were happy we rented it.
The property was exactly what we wanted for two weeks in Paris: close to major attractions and yet quiet at night, decorated tastefully with comfort in mind, a thoughtfully designed small apartment with a place for everything, and very well equipped.
The owner replies promptly and helpfully to every communication, and provides useful recommendations to attractions, museums, and shops. His recommendations were spot on (e.g. the best boulangerie, good restaurants, and excellent freshly squeezed orange juice, all very close by).
Once again we found Paris to be fabulous city with some very helpful people, particularly in restaurants. We would add one restaurant to the list, Alliance, 5 rue de Poissy, just across Pont de la Tournelle. It's innovative, fresh, delicious with a very helpful staff.
I happily recommend this apartment with complete confidence.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the apartment. It was just the right size for a week (or more) and even though we did not cook , the facilities were certainly all there.
The guide book to the apartment and its facilities was excellent (wish more places produced such a booklet) and even though we have been to Paris many times , we still got useful hints from your guide book.
Although we stayed on the island 2 years ago , a new (for us) feature was the closure of the right bank river side road and the establishment of café / restaurants on the moored boats and riverside . We went down several times for a late afternoon drink and listen to a band.
Thanks for the advice of the refunded deposit and thanks for allowing us to use the apartment beyond the usual departure time.
We would certainly recommend the apartment.

The Île Saint-Louis is one of two natural islands in the Seine river (the other natural island is Île de la Cité). The island is connected to the rest of Paris by bridges to both banks of the river and by the Pont Saint Louis to the Île de la Cité.
The Ile Saint Louis has become a highly residential area and a privileged destination and those looking for a romantic visit or who are impassioned about history looking for a Paris that is both elegant and authentic.
Ile Saint Louis will appeal to those who like more of a small-town feel, who appreciate historic neighborhoods and old towns, fine meals at a sidewalk café and guests tourists who prefer to live like locals, Often considered the most romantic part of Paris, the peaceful Ile St-Louis is prime strolling territory.
The flat is a three minute walk from Notre-Dame, a five minute walk from the famous Marais area and ten minute walk from Place des Vosges. Saint Germain, its art galeries and fashion shop are only 15 min walk
