About the property

Apartment, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)




A luxurious and cozy apartment with a Breathtaking Panoramic View on the Seine River in the heart of the most romantic city in the world: Paris!

Everything you need will be at your disposal: Flat screen TV with Cable, High Speed Internet, Fully Equipped Kitchen, Large Comfortable Bed, Washer, Spacious Shower, Elevator, etc...

Ile de la Cite is the most prestigious location because you are in the epicenter of Paris! The Notre Dame Cathedral is just steps from your door; The Hotel de Ville is just across the bridge; St. Michel, the Place des Vosges, the Marais, and the Latin Quarter are just a 5 min. walk away! The stunning Eiffel Tower is just a stroll away by foot down the river or by one of Paris' famous fly boats.

The apartment is accessible by all the major metro stations (Metro Lines 1,4,10, RER B..) and there is a new bike rental station around the corner - a great new Eco-friendly way to see the city.


1. Is the Apartment in a safe area? Yes. It's in the heart of Paris where it always lively; the streets are well-lit at night; there is a code to enter into the building; and of course we're always near by if you're ever in need!

2. Where is the nearest grocery store? There is a large supermarket on Rue de Rivoli not far from the apartment, however; the area around the Marais and the Ile St. Louis are known for their small specialty stores where you can find the best bread, cheese, wine and meat in Paris.

3. Can I make calls from the Apartment? How much are they? There is a phone in the apartment, and you can call to the US for FREE with our carrier! Some other destinations are free as well, please e-mail us with a list of countries you would like to call, and we'll let you know how little our carrier will charge. You can also buy a pre-paid MobiCarte, which is a SIM card you can buy at any Tabac, to use with your own cell phone here.

4. How do I get there from the airport? How much is it?

-- TAXI : 35-45 Euro

-- Direct Train (RER B) from Charles de Gaulle Airport and Orly Airport to Chatelet or St. Michel metro stations : less than 9 euro/per person + a short walk to the apartment

5. How do I get around? There is a vast metro/bus/train system in Paris that is easy to navigate, although the best mode of transport when you stay in the center of all the activity is by foot! There is also a hop-on/hop-off sightseeing bus, as well as a hop on/hop off sightseeing boat! The latest marvel is the new bike rental system! You can find one on almost any street corner - just rent it for however long you wish with your credit card (at what looks like an ATM) and off you go! (You can even return it to a different location, too).

6. How much would it be to stay in such a great location at a Hotel instead? In fact there are no hotels directly on the Seine River on the Ile de la Cite, that is what makes our apartment so special! And we have all the amenities of a hotel - plus so much more!


The payment conditions depend on the rental term:

For short term rentals (four nights to one month), we ask an immediate payment of half of the rent (usually a bank transfer) and the payment of the other half at arrival. A security deposit of € 500 is also required.

For long term rentals (one month to one year), we ask the first two months rent as an immediate payment and a two months security deposit.

The rent is including TV cable, internet, phone calls for several foreign countries (USA, Canada,Europe, ...) The rent includes all utilities + electricity (not exceeding 50€/week). The rent may change according to the season.

About The Owner

We're a friendly French, English, German & Spanish-speaking family who are happy to welcome all nationalities with open arms... We know all the best places in Paris and we will be here to help make your stay care-free and wonderful!

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2007

Why The Owner chose Paris Arr. 4 (Marais, Hotel de Ville)

We love Paris, and we would like tourists to live a real parisian life during their stay and we strongly believe that renting an apartment is a 1000 times better than going to an expensive hotel... where rooms are moreover usually very very tiny, furniture usually old fashioned. And the best way to enjoy Paris is to live like a parisian in a typical french apartment!

Being the historic center of Paris, Ile de la Cité is one of the most prestigious location in Paris, in the heart of 'Le Marais' quarter, you are 2 minutes walk from the world famous church Notre Dame, and close to all major sightseeings: Louvre Museum, Picasso Museum, famous Place des Vosges, Pompidou Center, Hotel de Ville...etc..

What makes this apartment unique

The location of our 'Lovenest' apartment is quite UNIQUE as you can see from the first two pictures: Located on the Quai aux fleurs, on the 2nd floor of a 17th century old renovated building, with a brand new elevator (very rare in this neighborhood), our apartment has 2 large windows, meaning lots of light, and above all from which you will have a DIRECT, panoramic and AMAZING view on the Seine River and on the Hotel de Ville, Pont Louis Philippe, and Saint Louis Island...

Thus, sitting comfortably in the leather couch in the living room, you will have a real show: the famous 'Bateaux Mouches' passing by... and the beauty of this scene especially at night when Paris becomes the City of light !

We wanted to give the 'french touch/taste' to our apartment, along with very high level and luxurious furniture for your comfort: a designer leather couch, antique table and chairs, a magnifiscent tapestry make the french style, while the modern 'american' kitchen, the italian style modern shower and the electronic high standard murphy bed gives you all the 'like home' comfort you need...!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Both my boyfriend and I LOVED this apartment! We really can't say enough good things about it! We stayed for one week and we felt like we where really living in Paris! It's perfect for two people. The murphy bed is truly comfortable! We sleep in a queen size bed at home, but this full size bed did not feel small at all! The entire apartment is clean! We never once felt like we had to worry about anything being dirty...the towels, the linens, dishes...everything was perfect! The bathroom is spacious with plenty of storage space for your toiletries. The closet was also very spacious equipped with an iron and ironing board. The washer was also perfect...the clothes come out cleaner than at home and practically dry because european washers take longer to cycle and spin a lot faster than the US was like having a washer and dryer in one! The location and view are amazing! Overlooking the river and near two metro stops...we where truly near to everything! The next island over (one block away) has a little market where we would buy fruit and right accross there is a bakery where we would buy crossaints in the morning. After walking all over the city, we where convinced we had picked the right place to stay...still central to everything, but away from the busy tourist chaos...we felt like we where part of the city there and not travelers passing by. The owners are also sweet as can be! They are there to welcome you and to wish you a farewell...they had water and champagne at our arrival. Thank you Marie and Marc! Our transaction was smooth from beginning to end. We will definitely stay here on our next trip to Paris! No doubts or hesitations :)

Cozy apartment on the Seine

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfect for our anniversary trip. You can't beat the location and the view of the Seine. The bed was super comfortable. Our delightful hostess made sure we had everything we needed. We hope to return again.

Magic and comfort in the heart of Paris!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this property was enchanting! Marie-Christine was extremely prompt in responding to my email enquiries & it was very easy to reach the flat from CDG Airport. Marie-Christine and her husband met me there and explained everything I needed to know re the flat, transport in Paris, sights to see etc. There are several guide books and maps in the flat that you can use during your stay.The location is PERFECT as many highlights of Paris are all within a15 minutes walk: Notre Dame, Ste Chappelle, Le Marais, the Latin Quarter, St Germain de Pres, Isle St Louis. The Louvre and Musee D'Orsay, l'Orangerie and other sights are just further along the Seine, we walked everywhere but one can easily take the Metro if preferred. La Tour Eiffel is easily reached using the subway which you can catch minutes from the flat. My husband and I stayed at this property before and including Christmas and it was MAGICAL! The flat itself is very cozy, extremely clean, and beautifully decorated. We left the murphy bed down as we felt there was no need to put it away during the day. There is a very handy Boulangerie just around the block (Rue d'Arcole) for morning croissants! We would DEFINITELY rent this flat again! Marie-Christine was a lovely hostess and this flat makes your stay quite extraordinary, watching the bateaux mouches and barges pass by.....a special pass-time which we enjoyed immensely.

Lovely visit in the heart of Paris

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is as tiny as described, and as conveniently located as described. We ended up leaving the bed down most of the time as it gave an extra surface to lay things while getting organized, and to save time, and we were not inside during the day very often. Our November visit meant very short lines, but we had gotten the Paris Museum Pass anyway. Being so conveniently located meant we could arrive early at Notre Dame without packing for the whole day, and return to the comfort of the apartment to figure out the rest of the day based on weather. We were also able to time our trip to St. Chappelle based on timing for sunlight (rare our cloudy week) through the stained glass (magnificent!).

Marie-Christine is a wonderful host, very helpful in offering suggestions by email in advance (so glad we made it over to the Fondation Louis Vuitton for their special exhibit that I can't spell offhand) and with a great handbook in the apartment with maps showing nearest bakery, different grocery stores, etc. She had a whole album of business cards from restaurants in Paris, but she visited with us on check-in to recommend restaurants based on our tastes, budget, and parts of town we planned to visit. We enjoyed a very convenient and reasonably-priced restaurant just around the corner (Au Bougnat) and will be pleased to try a meal at the restaurant (La Reserve de Quasimodo) that seemed so convenient that we saved it for a busy day toward the end and then ate our food remaining in the refrigerator instead.

We never used the washer and dryer, but were glad to have it as a backup if the weather had been rainy enough to get muddy or want to dry things out. Of course, it is very convenient for an inexpensive breakfast at a flexible time to have a refrigerator for milk and orange juice when Marie-Christine provides good materials for making coffee and the bakery is so convenient.

I would recommend you pack as lightly as possible due to limited storage space, but that is wise anyway, for carrying bags up escalators that aren't working in the RER or airport, etc. (Elevator here works.) The Batobus has stops on each side of the river convenient to the apartment, and is delightful in the summer. But if you are traveling there in winter, be aware the batobus stops running at 5 PM except 7 PM on Friday, so do not bother buying the pass until you have really figured out that you will use it. We should have just used the RER, etc., for this trip.

Lovely apartment in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy to return to Paris and to this perfect little apartment! It's a beautifully laid-out studio, spotlessly clean, with a wonderful view across the Seine to the Hotel de Ville and the towers of St-Gervais-et-St-Protais. In the mornings, we made tea and coffee and enjoyed the croissants that we had picked up the day before, and each evening, after a long happy day of wandering through the city, we sat on the sofa and watched the lights of the boats as they headed back to their berths. The apartment's central location means that it's easy to walk to almost everywhere that you'd like to go (and the metro isn't far, if walking doesn't appeal). The building and the street are quiet and calm, just right for winding down after a delicious dinner in a neighborhood brasserie. Marie-Christine and Marc are generous hosts, and we're so grateful that they made this place possible. This was our second stay with them, and we hope to come back many times.

Perfect central location

  • 5 of 5

Our two week stay was wonderful. Centrally located suite was exactly as described. It is small but has everything you need. Fully equipped modern kitchen and bathroom. Most attractions are within walking distance or enjoy the view and boats on the Seine through two large windows. Property clean and well maintained with luxury bed linens and towels. Before our arrival and during our stay Marie Christine and Marc were very attentive, accommodating, and thorough in providing information about the suite and surrounding area. Easy to communicate with. Extras such as bottled water, 'welcome' wine and macarons are all appreciated touches. I will recommend this suite to family and friends and hope to be back myself. Notre Dame, restaurants, hop on hop off buses, river cruises and hop on hop off boats, metro stations all within a block or two. Thank you Marie Christine and Marc!

Beautiful location and a wonderful apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for one week in this very clean, well-appointed apartment. The views are exceptional and Marie Christine thought of everything that one would need. We were greeted at the arranged time and Marie had a bottle of wine and bottles of water ready for us. The apartment is close to several metro stops and it is also easy to explore various neighborhoods and sights on foot from the apartment. It is a very secure location. While it is a studio apartment, we never felt cramped as it is efficiently organized and there is plenty of storage for clothes and suitcases. Marie provided a notebook containing locations of grocery stores and markets, and we enjoyed cooking a few meals in the nice kitchen.

We highly recommend this property.

Thank you for such a fabulous way to enjoy the City of Light!
