About Alina Ventura

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

Why Alina Ventura chose Les Îles

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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.

Brief stay on Ile Saint-Louis

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice time at the apartment. The location was so convenient to everything. We enjoyed walking down along the river in the evening. The Ile was awesome. We enjoyed the many shops there. Our family enjoyed staying here. The WiFi could be improved, but didn't overly impact our stay. We enjoyed visiting all of the sites from this beautiful location. Thank You!

Wonderful apartment in fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our weekend stay at this spacious apartment, which is in a perfect location only a 5 minute walk to Notre Dame. The large apartment was more than adequate for 4 people and could have easily accommodated another couple with its 3 bedrooms. We enjoyed the evenings sitting in the garden and having a glass of wine, cheese, fruit and other treats we purchased close by.

The only add is that it took us a little while to find Abdel's fruit shop to get the key when we arrived as I was thinking it would be next door to the apartment, and actually it was 50 meters or so down the street.

All in all, a great experience and we would not hesitate to come back again. Very quiet at night, especially compared to other places we have stayed in Paris over the years.

Perfect 3Br/2BA place to stay right on Ile St Louis!

  • 5 of 5

We started planning our trip to France back in February. When looking for a place for the 4 of us (all adults) to stay in Paris, my list of requirements included 3 bedrooms, a clothes washer AND dryer, and either ground floor or available lift. When I came across this place and found that it was available for our dates in October 2017, I said "That's it!". But then to find out that it is located almost in the center of the Ile St Louis and the apartment was on the ground floor sealed the deal for me.

Alina was wonderful in keeping touch before our arrival. The apartment is secured, requiring to go through two sets of entrance doors. The first two bedrooms face out onto the Rue Saint-Louis en I'lle street, but we had no issues with noise, and the island is mostly quiet after dark. The clothes washer and dryer worked great (as compared to reviews of other places where the dryer never works).

The apartment has 2 bathrooms, but the toilets are both in a separate room for the bathtub and sink, so you have room to spread out. Please note, there is no walk in shower -- both are standard tubs with shower. The living and dining room is also very spacious.

You have a dozen or more restaurants to choose from right on the island, and we ate at a different one every night, plus different ones for breakfast on some days. Never had a bad meal anywhere.

Of course, two other highlights is the Berthillon ice cream and the fact that a 5 minute walk across the pedestrian bridge takes you right to Notre Dame.

Absolutely a gem of a place in the heart of Paris. Even when taxi drivers came to pick us up or drop us off, they all asked how we found this place.

Great location and a well-secured apartment building

  • 3 of 5

The apartment met all our basic requirements, and we loved the location on Ile Saint-Louis, which was very convenient to lots of things, and not far from the Metro. The island is just lovely, and kind of its own little town.

The "private" garden is very pretty, but most of the other apartment windows opened onto the courtyard, so we had little privacy outside. On our last day, a workman was in the garden at 8am (didn't know there was another entrance!) by our sliding door, hammering above our door and doing other work. We really would have appreciated a notice that this was going to happen.

The apartment was adequate, but not as clean as we would have liked. The freezer was frozen over and unusable, and dishes were dirty. The bathtub stopper didn't work, and there was limited hot water. The robes provided seemed like they had recently been worn by someone else: mine had a sock in one pocket, and tissues in the other. The wifi was pretty weak and unavailable in the master bedroom.

I notified the owner about the freezer issue and lack of extra keys, but did not receive a response. We did very much appreciate the wine left for us, though!

While I'd happily return to this part of the city, I don't think I would stay in this apartment again.

Excellent Property for Paris Trip

  • 5 of 5

We have previously stayed at hotels on the Ile St. Louis, so we knew the location was perfect. If you are not familiar with the location, it is literally in the center of Paris, but not as chaotic since it is a small island. The apartment was exactly as advertised by Alina. It was comfortable, beautifully appointed, well maintained and spacious. We were on a mother-daughter trip - 2 moms and 2, 16yo girls - and we were very comfortable. Given the lay out of the apartment and the spacious patio, you can easily have a family with up to 4 children, 3 couples or 5 friends. The only thing that might matter to some people, is that the 2 smaller bedrooms on the street side, can be a little noisy at night or early morning because they are right next to the sidewalk and sometimes people stay out late, and the local merchants get started pretty early in the a.m. This did not pose a problem for us - the one person who had an issue with it, simply used ear plugs and was fine. It is certainly not a reason to pass up this apartments. As a host, Alina was excellent to work with and very responsive. She is particular about the care and use of things in her apartment, but that is also the reason it is such a wonderful place to stay - she makes sure everyone takes care of it. This property will always be my first choice for Paris.

Comfortable apartment with perhaps the best location in Paris.

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable apartment on the Ile Saint-Louis with huge garden. The apartment was in a great location, minutes from Notre Dame, Marais, and Latin Quarter. Good amount of living space, modern bathrooms and a large quite urban garden. The beds were comfortable and bedrooms efficiently laid out. No complaints. The apartment is located on a busy street during the day (mostly foot traffic, very few cars) but the street was sufficiently quiet at night. Key for us was the easy access to the Street, no stairs or elevators. Loved visiting all the bread and cheese shops on the island and the St Regis cafe down the street was a nice place to get a drink or food. We found the check in/out process simple and the host was pleasant to work with. Would definitely come back, the location cannot be beat.
