Lots of room for a bear to kick back and relax. 02/27/2013

VRBO Bear stayed here:

This apartment is absolutely beautiful, and very large for Paris! It is in a charming old building, but has been completely remodeled so that it possesses the best of both worlds. Its large windows provide warm lighting, and high ceilings display wonderful exposed hardwood beams. It has a nice sized bedroom and a large living room that has both a couch and a chair that fold out to provide room for another 3 people. There is storage everywhere for clothing and anything else you can imagine. The bathroom has all new hardware and an amazing walk-in shower. A great kitchen is equipped with new appliances and all the amenities if you feel like staying in and cooking. However the location is absolutely perfect, with tons of excellent restaurants and brasseries within walking distance for those who prefer to dine out. Many other places of interest are walkable, or at a minimum a quick metro ride away if you don’t feel like walking. The apartment is on a nice quiet street, so you won’t be bothered if you decide to sleep late, but is close to all sorts of nightlife if you decide that you want to stay out late. Overall the apartment and location are ideal, with everything you could ask for to provide an amazing Paris getaway.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

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. This is very simple : Ile Saint Louis is a dream area even for Parisian People. The most exclusive and well placed area of the city. I couldn't buy anywhere else. You can find cheaper, but nowhere else you will feel the city like on the Island ! This is a fact that the most exclusive area is the Ile Saint Louis and the most historic.

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. Ile Saint Louis is the most exclusive part of Paris and the best place to 'feel' the city. But at the night, the ambiance is calm and magic. Walking along la Seine river with Notre Dame Cathedral as a view is amazing. And when I got back to my place, with its old beams and tiled floor in an 17th century building, yes, I can say it : i am in the heart of Paris, well in my cozy place !
