About the property

540 Sq. Foot / 51 Sq. Meter, 2 Bedroom, 1.5 Bathroom In The Best Location

This warm and cozy two bedroom apartment is on the 4th floor of a well maintained 18th-century building with a modern elevator for easy access. You know you are in Paris when you step in the house and immediately fall in love with it. There are original hardwood floors and wooden beams throughout the house. Even though you are in the heart of Paris, this apartment is off the main tourist's walkways and very quite, both day and night.

From the three windows inside of the apartment, there are gorgeous views of Notre Dame with best being in the master bedroom where you will sleep and wake up with this unbelievable postcard view as seen in the pictures. You will wake up in the middle of the night wondering if it is real or not. You will also have the pleasure of hearing Bells of Notre Dame to add to your experience.

Living room has a large window with view of Notre Dame. There is comfortable sofa, a couple of easy chairs, an antique fireplace (non-working), and a flat screen TV with BluRay DVD player. There is cable with a few English and many French channels. Included with the apartment is free WiFi and telephone. Long distance calls to land lines in over 100 countries are free. This extends to calls to cell phones in France, USA and Canada.

Dinning room has a large round table that seats up to 6 people. There is also a view of Notre Dame.

There's a fully equipped kitchen with a large size refrigerator, 4-burner stove, microwave, dishwasher, toaster, coffee maker, electric kettle, and all the dishes, cutlery, glassware, pots and pans, and serving pieces that you will need to cook for yourself if you so choose to but you will find it hard with having some many great fine and casual restaurants around you.

Master bedroom has a queen size bed with comfortable mattress and pillows and high quality linen. A floor to ceiling closet and dresser are in the room. Open the window and sit and watch Notre Dame and our courtyard while listening to Bells of Notre Dame. There is a 1/2 bathroom off the master bedroom with a small corner sink and a toilet.

Second guest bedroom is off the living room with two twin beds that converts to a king if need be and each has a comfortable mattress and pillows with high quality linen. The sliding door will give you privacy or keep them open to sleep and wake up to a view of Notre Dame. A floor to ceiling large closet and a small table are in the room.

Main bathroom off the dining room and kitchen area has a large tub with shower, towel heaters and nice size vanity. Off the bathroom in a small cove, there is a stacked washer/dryer so that you won't have to take a whole lot of clothing with you and instead save room in your luggage for shopping in Paris.

You will be greeted by our gracious host for your check-in and she will be available to answer any questions during your stay. She will also give you all the information you will need to have the best time in Paris, City of Lights.

Fantastic Stay, in a spectacular neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Very nice 2 bedroom flat with all you need. The rental is very secure. With a security gate that leads to the courtyard and then a security door before you enter the common area. It does have a small elevator to the apartment, but the walk up the stairs is not that bad.

The apartment is spacious with 1 1/2 baths, a laundry room, a fully equipped galley kitchen; a nice eating space and a very comfortable living room.

You cannot beat the location, just around the corner from Notre Dame, across the bridge from Hotel de Ville, and a quick walk to fantastic restaurants, shopping and of course great wine.

I would recommend my most discriminating friends to stay hear when in Paris.

Perfect location in the heart of Paris

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four was able to visit much of Paris mostly on foot from this perfectly centrally located charming apartment. The neighborhood is old and has character just like the apartment. It is remarkably quiet at night even with the window open which makes the squeaky floor seem loud but it's certainly preferable to street noise. It was easy to find and figure out the door and our lovely host was waiting for us upon arrival. She warmly welcomed us and showed us around. Upon departure, when we left something personal behind, she went above and beyond and packaged and shipped our belongings home to us. The owners were super easy to book with and were so helpful with helping us plan our trip in advance and answering any questions. The apartment is very well stocked, the beds comfortable, the linens nice, the two toilets essential, the closets ample, the lighting surprisingly really good and the laundry super handy for packing light. There are cafes and bakeries and ice cream and a small grocery very nearby. A wonderful apartment for our family with everything we needed and exactly what we expected. We felt extremely safe and knew our host was available if we needed anything. Highly recommend.

It Doesn't Get Better Than This!

  • 5 of 5

The owners of the property were so extremely helpful before, during, and after our stay. They offered tips on places to eat, things to see/do, etc. The home was just perfect and exactly as it was described. I felt so at home, I could have stayed forever. The location is absolutely perfect. You are walking distance to everything - even the Eiffel Tower if you're up for it. The only thing I found a bit tricky was operating the washer/dryer, but I eventually figured it out. Ice cream from Berthillon is a must, as well as a tour with Sight Seeker's Delight. I can't wait to return again!

C'est Fantastique!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing experience to stay on the Île de la Cité .. truly the heart of Paris! This flat is perfect! Perfect location, perfect amenities! We loved hearing the bells of Notre Dame each day .. what an added bonus! This location is absolutely wonderful .. within walking distance to so many Paris must-sees and great restaurants! It's in a very safe location and in a very secure building. Shahab was incredibly helpful from the moment we inquired about his flat and kept in contact with us throughout our stay in Paris! I've been to the amazing City of Light several times ... it was so awesome to stay in a flat where we were able to see the towers and spire of Notre Dame right out our bedroom window this time! If you want to stay where you feel like a local and experience a true Parisian flat then this is definitely the place! Highly, highly recommend! Thank you to Shahab and his family for sharing their little slice of heaven with us!

Jusqu'à la procaine fois!

Perfect location and perfect hosts.

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect location to see all of Paris.

We spent 10 nights in this wonderful apartment and would have loved to stay longer, but alas work interrupted our journey. The apartment has everything you need for comfort. Very Quiet except for the bells of Notre Dame which were a delight to listen to and soft enough not to be a bother. The queen bed is firm but comfortable. the twins can be pulled together to form a king-ish sized bed. The water heater gave us plenty of hot water for showers. We drank the water right out of the faucet and it was delicious and cold. The heating system kept us cozy. The kitchen was fine but we ate out every night due to the many wonderful dining options within a 10 minute walk. Shahab and Gurvinder were very easy to deal with and their local manger Luz was enormously helpful getting us settled in and any time we needed any help. All in all we would come back again in a heartbeat. Paris is amazing. We enjoyed very much the St Regis restaurant only 2 blocks away. We felt like locals by the end of our trip. Try the spaghetti Bolognese or the Scallops Risotto. Both were amazing.

Awesome Experience

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish we had a fantastic time. Once we booked, Shahab sent us a detailed packet of information covering everything from how to get to the apartment from the airport to nearby attractions. The location was fabulous, close to the Marais neighborhood and the Left Bank. Of course, the bells of Notre Dame were a special addition. The apartment worked great for two couples and was well furnished. Would happily stay there again.

Car: not necessary


This place is located in the heart of Paris where it all began for this great city. ILE DE LA CITE is one of the two islands in the middle of Seine River where NOTRE DAME is located in. The flat is where you want to be as not only you are a short walk around the corner to Notre Dame Cathedral but also to some of the greatest neighborhoods and main attractions in Paris.

The house is steps from Pont Saint-Louis, a short pedestrian bridge leading to the other island, the Ile Saint-Louis.

Louvre Museum, Saint Paul Cathedral, Pantheon, Latin Quarter, Marais, Hotel de Ville, Jardin de Luxembourg, and many more attractions are a short 10 to 15 minute walk.
