I fell in love with Paris when I was 18 and came to study Law at Nanterre University, leaving Switzerland where I was raised.
Years after, as I modeled around the world, leaving my Saint-Germain-des-Prés apartment early in the morning, the taxi drives to the airport, would take me across the bridge from the Left Bank to the Right Bank, through the Island. Living in the Ile Saint-Louis was absolutely out of my reach then, but it always was my fantasy. I was in awe of the impressionist paintings of Monet representing the Seine in the morning and the bridges. The pink-grey lights of dawn, the golden illumination at night, triggered an intense sense of beauty, peace, serenity and elegance.
Years after, when we found this dream place, it had been owned by the same Parisian lady, for over 50 years ( Paula received it as a wedding present from her father when she was twenty one). We fell in love with her, and her place. Needless to say it was like awakening the Sleeping Beauty. It needed to come to modern life, while preserving its original 'cachet'.
It was an immense privilege and a great joy to give a second life to this rare and full of charm haven, and I must say that sharing it with our lovely guests and friends has also been a great privilege and a joy.
Alina Ventura purchased this apartment in 1999
Our love for this garden, this enchanting haven, in the middle of this dream Island...Paris and love, the best combination in the world!!!! The location in not the least of the conveniences and charm of this unique place on the Island.
Whether seating in the dining-room, or in the living-room, or lying in bed, we always enjoy the serenity of the place. We read in peace and silence. When friends stop by, we seat in the garden and sip a cocktail or have tea in the afternoon while listening to Edith Piaf 'La Vie en Rose'. When we want to go to museums or shopping we just ride our bikes to the Place des Vosges or to Musée Beaubourg, or go to Saint-Germain-des-Prés. It's like two minutes from everything that represents Paris to us.
This 3 bedroom home with 2+ bathrooms is bright, spacious, modern and artsy -- and the private garden is an extraordinary great surprise! It is well appointed with a nicely prepared, efficient kitchen and with comfortable sofa and chairs and blankets and pillows. The ground floor (street level) location is very convenient, yet the home is very quiet and private. Once inside, you would never know that you are actually along the street! Three steps out the front door and you are right into the life of I'le de St. Louie. There are multiple bakeries and groceries (with great fruit) and cafes and restaurants, fun clothing and kitchen stores, art galleries, pharmacy, and everything you could ask for within 10 to 100 meters from your front door. No need to buy groceries for the pantry, when it is just as fast to step out the front door and buy what you need from a shop across the street! My son went down the street one night, saw a great men's barbershop, and decided to shed his long surfer hair to get a fresh French haircut! Our family of 5 stayed for 5 days (ages 17 to 50's), and joined by our son's girlfriend one night. With the layout of the bedrooms, bathrooms, and living areas, there was plenty of room. There are excellent restaurants with many different types of offering. The I'le St. Louis is the best place I have ever stayed in Paris. Narrow streets with lots of people walking, not too many cars. Mostly local people and not too many tourists (at least compared to elsewhere). It's quiet but still lively. A simple walk to several metro stops and to many popular nearby destinations. November temperatures were too cold to use the garden, but it was beautiful to have the garden there, and too look upon it, and to walk outside amidst the pretty plants and trees every once in a while -- here in the middle of the Seine ! Who would have guessed? I highly recommend this charming and fun place to stay, and will indeed recommend it to any friends of ours who are planning a trip to Paris. We first stayed in a 5th floor grand apartment on Blvd St Germain (which was very very nice, with great balcony and views), and then stayed at I'le St Louis. Both were VRBO and both were wonderful. If you've got the time (8+ days), stay at both. if not, stay at Alina's place on I'le St Louis.
We were two active senior couples thrilled with the apt. and especially enjoyed the spacious, quiet private garden! Our friends are Paris "regulars" and recommended we try to find a place to stay on the island. Best advice ever and we felt so fortunate to find Alina's apt available for rent. Upon arrival, we found the unit to be very clean (and I'm super particular about that). A great way to start our stay. However, we were disappointed to have our first few days with no internet, phone or TV due to a service change, but Alina was very helpful and by Day#3, all was fixed. Although the kitchen area is small, it is very well equipped. We picked up fresh baked goods from the boulangerie a few doors down, brewed our coffee and had breakfast (sometimes with eggs and juice too) "at home" every morning before we set out for the day's activities. One of the bedrooms has 2 twin beds that are quite small, but fortunately my husband and I managed fine, although we would have preferred a double or queen bed. I don't think our friends could have fit in those bed comfortably - they stayed in the Master BR with attached bathroom. We did not try the sofa bed in the study as our general experience with them is that they aren't particularly comfortable. The decor and layout of the apt made us feel so at home, especially after a long day of walking/exploring the beautiful city of Paris! The location of the apt is in a busy area during the day, but the action was all positive. Lots of nice shops and good restaurants closely ... many within a block or two of the apt. Transportation is within easy walking distance and during our 2+ weeks there, we managed to get most anywhere within Paris, no problem! Without hesitation, we highly recommend Alina's apt and we're ready to book again for 2017!! Thank you Alina for sharing your fantastic apt with us. Although we regret not meeting you in person ... you were the ultimate hostess!!
We loved being so close to everything and yet quiet and peaceful!
Excellent location for shops restaurants and site seeing. Abdel could not have been more helpful. We all enjoyed our stay, my daughter was so excited to be able to see the Notre Dame Cathedral everyday!!!!
I would definitely recommend this accommodation and would visit it again!!!
This beautiful apartment on Saint-Louis-en-I'lle was so lovely, spacious and with a gorgeous garden. Our group of 6 ladies arrived after a very long trip from Australia to find a very lovely place to call home for the next week. Beautifully furnished with all the comforts and amenities needed for our stay.
The shops in the street had everything you could possible need, bakery, groceries, wine, restaurants, ice-creamery, gifts etc. The location was so close to any transport or just walk as we did everywhere and to most tourist venues. I could not recommend this apartment more highly as all of us enjoyed our 7 days there immensely and would recommend it to anyone wanting a beautiful place to stay, close to all shopping requirements and yet tucked away in a quiet and comfortable street close to everything. Thank you Alina for making us feel so welcome in your beautiful apartment.
Best wishes from the 6 Aussie ladies.
2nd time renting this home, it is perfect street with all you need 5-10 steps away! The 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms are great, but love the open living area and huge outdoor (private) courtyard. I'm sure I'll be back for a 3rd visit. Highly recommend...
