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.

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
