About the Property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Ile Saint Louis is the most prestigious and sought after location in all of Central Paris- a small island in the middle of the Seine yet away from all the crowds and tour buses . A small exclusive community live in 16th, 17th and 18th century mansions and apartments. The church of Saint Louis, Notre Dame,the Louvre, the Seine, Bastille opera , several open markets, several Metro stations , buses, fashionable shops and restaurants are all close by .

Since we purchased the apartment we have added a second bathroom and updated the main bathroom - VERY FEW Paris apartments have two bathrooms . The kitchen has been updated, windows in Living room , Dining room, door to terrasse and windows on street are now double glazed for energy efficiency. Solid oak hardwood floors throughout, and the apartment has quality furnishings and equipment . Pictures are also on our own web site.

The apartment is at the quiet end of the charming main street of Ile Saint Louis, in a small very well maintained 18th Century building at the far end of the street - away from all the noise of the boutiques and restaurants at the Notre Dame end. Real French people live in the building . It is close to the famous BERTILLON Ice Cream Store, wonderful patisseries, butcheries, restaurants, art galleries, bookstores and charcuteries. It is easy walking distance to all major attractions and to the Metro - Notre Dame, Louvre, the Sainte Chapelle, the Marais, the Bastille, and several street markets---it is only 100 metres from the Seine .


There are several bus lines close to the apartment, as well as the Metro Pont Marie or Sully Morland, Line 7, which takes you to the Louvre, Opera, Comedie Francaise and the Grands Magazins. Metro station Cite, on line 4, and Saint Paul on line 1 are also very close .

Our apartment is on 1er etage, one flight up, is 80 square metres - around 850 square feet, and as well, it has a 22-square-metre terrasse garden which gets afternoon sun . The floor plan can be faxed to you.
We have just - November 2012 - enlarged and remodelled the kitchen . Pictures will be soon on web site

There are two bedrooms, each with French king-size beds,
160 x 200 cms . The double living room has a full size sofa bed, and a mahogany desk/secretaire. There is a family room/casual eating area with a table seating six and a TV off the separate kitchen. The dining room has an antique mahogany table, with 8 mahogany cane seated chairs and can seat 8 to 10. It also has an exposed stone wall, and a serene outlook onto trees .

All five rooms have access to the terrasse- either with windows or French doors. Although there is no airconditioning, the apartment's thick stone walls, its numerous windows and the terrasse ensure that the apartment stays cool in the summer. The bedrooms are quiet, both located at the rear of the apartment. We do have two fans

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: We live in San Francisco when we are not in Paris taking care of this apartment and enjoying everything Paris has to offer. WE PROVIDE PERSONALISED SERVICE AND HAVE A WONDERFUL LOCAL REPRESENTATIVE AVAILABLE JUST A PHONE CALL AWAY

Why the Owner Chose Notre Dame, Paris, France:
This apartment needed some TLC when we bought it in 2003 , but no major work or reconfiguration .As well our realtor knew a contractor who could do the work needed- he was also doing up a palace for the Rothschilds at the same time . We love the location , which is quiet yet very central . The bedrooms are at the back of the aprtment so very quiet for sleeping

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The patisseries on our street and the newly managed Cheese shop. Watching the beautifully dressed children playing in the preschool opposite . As it is at far end of the street ,where no restaurants or boutiques are allowed , it is very quiet after 6 pm . The aprtment is very well equpped with top quality linens and china , most brought from USA
