After looking at photos of the studio, we were pleasantly surprised to see how much larger it appeared when we actually stepped inside. The apartment is decorated in warm colors, and all of the mirrors help make the space feel quite spacious but cozy. The bathroom is huge with a great walk-in shower, and the pull-out sofa bed is quite comfortable. There is a fully equipped kitchen with really every amenity that you would require. However the best part of this apartment is definitely the location. The train from the airport drops you off no more than a 5 minute walk away, and you are perfectly placed to visit every neighborhood of Paris. Ile Saint Louis has a number of cute restaurants and shops, and the Marais is just a quick walk across the bridge and provides access to a great area full of unique and fun restaurants. Our favorite part was that we could walk to pretty much everything! Even though the weather was chilly, we were able to walk to the Notre Dame, the Louvre, and the Pompidou Centre. Many other places are walkable, or at a minimum a quick metro ride away if you don’t feel like walking! Nicolas is a great host, as he provides tons of information and is readily available on his cell phone. Any questions you have, he’s happy to answer for you and gives great advice.

Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: I am Nicolas, married to Caroline. We are in our 30' and parents of twins baby boys of 3 years and a 4 years old little girl. I lived in the US at Austin TX (one of my best experience), in 2001 and loved to help my friends discovering France and Paris. I have some close family living in CA near Monterey and SF area.
A couple of years after being back to France, we decided with my wife to buy 2 places on the Ile Saint Louis (VRBO #168257 and VRBO#299432). I rapidly gets outstanding reviews and I decided to help friends to manage some selected other outstanding properties with a single guideline : welcoming guest who want to have their 'home away' experience in Paris.
My main activity is to be General Counsel working in the field of the French Start-up industry. With those apartments, I am really doing what I love to do : helping guests to have a magic experience of Paris with the most charming places in the best locations of Paris.
I am confident that your experience of Paris at home will be a sucess !
Why the Owner Chose Paris Arrondissement 4: Location, Location, Location.
It's very simple : it's the best and most exclusive place of Paris.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment: Because there is no other place like Ile Saint Louis, even Le Marais or Saint Germain des près are not as magic as Ile Saint Louis. This is a privilege to live there.
So Exclusive !
