About Fabienne

I am pleased to welcoming my guests and put special attention to our guests needs. I hope to make you feel home in France, in a place that can be considered ideal for Paris visits and authentic life style!

Fabienne purchased this condo in 1989

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

For its perfect situation, quiet surrounding, beautiful layout, and charming and safe neighborhood with on-shore restaurants.

What makes this condo unique

What is so special about this rental location: Perhaps hearing the bells of Notre Dame? Or just bumping out of the house door and being within the very ancient heart of historical city centre of Paris: the isle Cité, where Lutetia - the city of lights - was originally founded? These are only some of all reasons, why you will feel so great in this place! Having just a 2 minutes walk to twin island St. Louis, right over the bridge in front of Notre Dame. Passing by the church`s prominent facade and beautiful park, enjoying sunshine and the view on boats on river Seine passing by, having a sunny breakfast on a boat fixed to the river side: this is how to enjoy the most perfect and peasant of all Paris atmospheres - right in front of your house -!

There is nothing more romantic!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We spent a perfect time, indeed in the very centre of historical Paris. A great place to be, very clean, quiet and cosy.

We will be back!

Great place! Good location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this property. It provides a full kitchen where you can cook if you want, two bedrooms, however one is also the living room with sofas. No separate living room, but it worked for us. It is a wonderful location, and walking distance to lots. We loved hearing the bells from Notre Dame all day. Fabrienne was very helpful when we arrived. Great Place!!

Location, Location, Location!

Nicely renovated apartment in an old building steps from Notre Dame. Well-furnished for a short stay. Only improvement would be the beds, which have fairly thin mattresses on wood platforms and are not what you would call comfy Stairwell is narrow and dark so bring a light. All worth it to be on the Île de la Cité.

Brilliant location and on the first floor too.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment on Ile de Cite is in a great location. Close to Notre Dame but not so close that the bells ringing are a problem, it is close to everything (bars, restaurants and the metro). The kitchen is well appointed and sleeping areas are spacious. We would recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a short stay on the island.

Fun and easy

  • 5 of 5

Everything we needed was there and the location is really convenient. Short walk to Notre Dame and cafe's and shopping. The place is very quiet except for the bells of Notre Dame which makes it feel so authentic. The stairs were only one flight and seemed a bit dark at first but nothing to worry about. Big breakfast seating area in kitchen. Two nice sized bedrooms. Great for two couples or family with one or two small children. Dorm sized fridge.

Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment consists of two bedrooms and a kitchen. There are two couches in one of the bedrooms and so that room can also be used as a living room. It is not a fancy place but we were looking just for a safe and clean place to sleep with a good location. The apartment is right behind Notre Dame on Ile de la Cite and so it is very central. There is a metro stop about 2 blocks away and also a RER train stop that was very convenient to take the RER train to Charles de Gaulle airport.
