Comfortable and convenient location

The apartment certainly lived up to the description in the VRBO announcement. It would be very high on our list for a return visit to Paris. In short, highly recommended.

Wonderful Paris VII siècle apartment made our anniversary trip!

  • 5 of 5

We just had a wonderful stay at the apartment on the I'le Saint Louis! The apartment was perfect for us; my husband and I were celebrating our 36th anniversary. It was rustic and cozy, with everything we needed right there.

The management company and especially Myriam were friendly and personable... The location was superb... lots of great shops and restaurants within 2 blocks, plus all of Paris was around the corner.

You won't regret your choice of this apartment; we can't wait to return!

An historic property and quiet refuge in the middle of Paris

  • 5 of 5

Waking up in a hotel particulier that existed over a hundred years before the United States became a nation is an experience not to be missed. The grandeur of a thick wooden beamed ceiling that is colossal in its height elicits feelings of a lush, bygone era. Located in the oldest part of Paris, history surrounds you- Marie Curie's house is just down the road as is Notre Dame cathedral. Let your mind wander even farther back this is one of the islands where the Romans first stayed. Across the River Seine, the Jewish district (the trendy Marais- built on land originally granted to the Knight's Templar) awaits. Add a delicious bakery three doors down, Berthillon's original ice cream store (not to be missed), a wonderful meat shop, a grocery store and a chic cafe (St Regis) then you have the recipe for a great stay in Paris. While chilly on first entering, the apartment warmed and heating was never a problem thereafter. A kitchen and adorable loft are huge bonuses as well Highly recommended.

Apartment needs renovating!

  • 2 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this Ile Saint Louis apartment for five nights in early December. The best things about the apartment were the location and the fact that it was clean. The apartment was not as it looked in the pictures. The walls had small holes, and the lighting was very poor. We had to pick up a lamp and hold it over the closet to see our clothes. And it was cold! There are two space heaters - one in the living room, and one in the bedroom. Despite keeping them going all the time, the apartment was never really warm. Our plane arrived from the US at 8:00 a.m. We were charged 30 euros (and it was quoted at 60) to access the apartment before 2:00 p.m. even though no one had stayed there the night before. I would not recommend this apartment until it has been renovated.

Owner's Response: Hi Dawn, Thank you for your review and mentioning its cleanliness and perfect location. We are sorry you found the lighting was poor and felt the heating was not sufficient. You should have called us , we would have brought you an extra heater and lamp. We will do the needful. The apt has been decorated on purpose in the ancient style of the Iles Saint-Louis. We understand that the style may not appeal to some guests who are looking for modern decoration. We hope to welcome you some day in another one of our more modern style apts.
