This apartment is a true rarity within Paris, it took us three years to find it then a year to renovate and decorate. There are no hotels anywhere in Paris which could offer you the same river views, plus a sun drenched terrace. This is truly an exceptional apartment and an opportunity to live a real Parisian dream!

We finished this apartment then had to move to London, this was our home for only a few months. We are leaving everything as is and want like minded people to rent and take care of it as they would their own home. We have a full time concierge, who will check you in and out and can be contacted at any time if you need assistance throughout your stay.

Ile Saint Louis is the most central location in Paris as well as being one of the most beautiful. Staying on the island is a true luxury and staying in this apartment will add to the pure magic of it all! Ile Saint Louis is one of the most prettiest and safest areas in Paris, and after living in Paris for over 10 years would never ever consider living anywhere else!

Ile Saint Louis is known for its specialty boutiques and picturesque streets plus location wise everything is on your door step, starting with Notre Dame, a 4 minute walk, the famous Marais area, an 8 minute walk, the Louvre, a gorgeous 20 minute stroll plus Musee D’Orsay, Pompidou Centre and Palais Royal, place des Vosges, Jardin des Tuileries, Concorde and Champs Elysées are just close by on foot. On the other side of Ile Saint Louis you have the Latin Quarter, Jardins du Luxembourg, Saint-Germain and le Jardin des Plantes.

The apartment is on the 5th and 6th floor with elevator access of a 17th Century building. The other residents are French and of high standing and this is one of 5 apartments in the building. It is bathed in sunlight all day, sun streams in over the balcony (north) all morning then by early afternoon the sun in coming through the French doors and bay window onto the terrace.

The entrance to the apartment has sun streaming in early morning, there is a built in cupboard for hiding jackets and umbrellas, to the left under the stairs which lead to the upstairs living area there is the toilet with a hand basin and to the right is the bedroom.

The bedroom is therefore on the entrance level, it has original windows and a sky light which sun pours though and an opaque blind to shut it out if desired, it is truly so light and airy. It has large built in wardrobes, a brand new large double bed 160cm x 200cm with a new mattress and a chest of drawers. There is plenty of lighting and reading lights, plus a large mirror. All linen is of the upmost quality.

Take the stairs to the first level and you arrive at the open plan 35sq2 meter living and entertaining area. The ceilings are high and have beautiful original polished beams, its so spacious and light even on a grey day! There is a balcony which receives the morning sun and over looks the Seine, perfect for a quick coffee before exploring the city. Then there is a 5 m2 terrace with table and chairs which is perfect for outdoor entertaining. The 18th century French doors open directly onto this and the sun drenches this from 2pm until 7pm.

The view from the apartment balcony is simply breathtaking, very very hard to come by. You are in the most stunning city in the world, 6 floors up overlooking the most beautiful river embroidered with bridges and the world’s most historical monuments everywhere you look! This view of Paris is particulary rare to come by unless you own a river front apartment 6 floors up on this particular street, interestingly there are no hotels in Paris which have river views so this apartment is a real find! You can see from the Champs de Elysees all the way to Bastille plus in-between, Sacred Coeur, the Louvre, Hotel de Ville Pompidou center, Bastille.

The view from the terrace is a typical French rooftop view. Red terracotta tiles and chimneys and the elites rooftop terraces , plus you can see the Pantheon and the Montparnasse tower. No one looks onto you or is beside you so you are in your own private cocoon. Perfect for a chilled glass of French champagne or ice cold rose!

The kitchen is fully equipped with state of the art appliances, a descending oven and an ascending ventilator. There is an oven, microwave, clothes washing machine which dries and a dishwasher, two cooking elements plus a toaster and a jug, everything you need for making a three course meal. There is a central bar which is great for eating meals, there are four stools and two hanging lights. Meals can be prepared and eaten here, or on the terrace.
The living area has a couch and two confortable armchairs. There is a coffee table plus a large screen television with international channels such as CNN and BBC.

The bathroom or washroom has Italian floor and wall tiles and a window which morning sun streams through. It’s a fantastic sensation have a shower in the sun! Although small it is perfectly functional and bright and pristine.

This is just a spectacular apartment and will only enhance your stay in Paris. Everyone who enters has to catch their breath as it is very rare to find this type of apartment, with a lift on the Ile Saint Louis!

This is such a great opportunity to make your stay in Paris truly unforgettable.

We have a car service we can offer too. We have been using Chan and his services ourselves for years, he has a lovely big Mercedes with aircon. He can do pick ups and drop offs to the airport which is great as you can avoid the taxi queue plus grumpy taxi drivers! He will be there to greet you and help with luggage and speaks great English.
His fee is 100 euros one way to airport. (Taxis are normally 70 to 80 euros)
Half day for 4 hours is 150 euros
Full day is 300 euros

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: We are an English/French couple and this apartment was a labour of love and is furnished with may personal items. We just love coming back to Paris to stay here, it really is so beautiful, bright and homely.

                  Why the Owner Chose Paris Arrondissement 4:
                  It is truly the best location in Paris, you are in the middle of the city but then hidden away from the hussel and bussel of it all. You can walk everywhere and the best restaurants and shops are all walking distance from the apartment.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                  Croissants and freshly squeezed orange juice on the balcony over looking the Seine in the morning sun and chilled rose and cheese on the terrace in the evening sun! The views are simply stunning!
