About the Property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

This is my home when I am in Paris. It can be yours for a week or two or even a month. It is located in one of the most beautiful mansions of the ile Saint Louis the ”Hotel Charron” built in 1640 to house the wealthy Charron family, which is today registered as a historical monument with the Ministry of Culture.

The apartment is two floors up (sorry no elevator, but the Ministry of Culture would not permit that) and measures 100 sq. meters (over 900 sq. feet). Its six windows facing west overlook a garden with beautiful roses and hydrangeas and receive plenty of sunshine. In addition, small windows high up on the eastern wall (called “jours de souffrance”) let the morning sun brighten the living room.

The apartment is composed of a large beamed living room/dining room and two bedrooms (also beamed) one of which contains a queen size bed and the other one two twin beds. There is also one bathroom with bathtub and shower and a washer dryer, and a fully equipped kitchen. Both the bathroom and kitchen have been newly renovated.

The ile Saint Louis is in the center of Paris, five minutes on foot from Notre Dame on the ile de la Cité, also a short walk from the Sorbonne in the Quartier Latin on the left bank and the Louvre on the right bank. You can also stroll on the river banks at the foot of the building and much more.

The surrounding streets are full of restaurants and people, and very lively especially during the tourist season, but when you are tired of the crowds you can return home where everything is peaceful and you will hear only the birds in the garden under your windows. It is very bright all day long and very comfortable with two sofas on which you can slouch in front of the fireplace while watching the evening news on CNN, BBC or the European networks, and it is beautifully furnished with family heirlooms (a XVth century chest, a Louis XVI writing table, beautiful prints etc…). The dining table in the living room sits easily six persons so you can even invite your friends for dinner if you so desire. And a small table in the kitchen will permit you to have your breakfast in the kitchen if you prefer that.

The closest subway station is Pont Marie, just over the bridge, but a five minutes walk will take you to other metro stations and bus stops.

You can call all over France and certain other countries for free (except for cell phones [any number starting with 06 in France] and numbers starting with 08 for which there is a charge) from the telephone in the apartment, and there is a Wi-Fi connection if you are traveling with your computer.

I only ask you to be a good neighbor and not give loud parties and also not to smoke or bring a pet.

Year Purchased: 1968

About: I purchased my apartment in 1968 when I still lived year round in Paris.

Why Notre Dame, Paris, France:
I purchased my apartment in 1968 when I still lived year round in Paris. Any Parisian dreams of living on the Ile St Louis, but when I visited the Quai de Bourbon, I knew that I had found that dream. First it is in the heart of the old city where I could walk to every place that counts: the Louvre, the jardin du Luxembourg, the quays along the Seine, the old streets of the Marais, St Germain des Prés and the Latin quarter, shopping, cinemas… and at the same time I could find complete quiet at home.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Now I spend most of my time either with my children and grand children who live in the United States or in my country house in the mountains of central France. But I do reserve a few weeks for Paris when I am in France. Sometimes, if I have a very busy day there and I am so happy to get back to the quiet of my apartment in the evening. And sometimes, I simply stay home for the pleasure of being in this gorgeous place. It is so roomy and sunny. My friends love to come and visit me there and we either go out and have a meal in one of the many restaurants in the neighborhood or we have dinner at home around my dinner table that can sit 8. I never tire of it All of Ile St Louis is attractive and most buildings date from the XVIIth or XVIIIth century, but a few are particularly beautiful. Hotel Lambert, at the eastern tip of the island is the best known, but Hotel Charron, where my apartment is located is close second
