The building is on the Seine facing the Marais in the very centre of Paris. This location is very close to the Pont Marie bridge over the river.

There is also a beautiful tree lined pedestrian water front walk right in front of the building.

The island is away from the hustle of Paris street traffic. This is a very prime location for quiet walks around the island.


Manager info

Year Purchased: 1990

About: My name is Art, I live full time in Manhattan and Fire Island. I have been in NY for 23 years, originally from San Diego, CA. I work hard to make this apartment nice. I am a finish carpenter and work on all my properties. I have other island properties to let if interested in the USA.

Why Notre Dame, Paris, France:
Walking around on the island during the sunset, is the most beautiful and peaceful place to end the day. There are a number of romanic sunset viewing spots to watch the sun go down over the Seine and the Cathedral, Notre Dame.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The unique situation about this apartment is that it is located on a very quiet courtyard 1st floor. Once you exit the building your on the tree lined Seine. The butcher, bakery, cheese shop, wine shop, ATM, & convenience store, all on the island. One does not need to leave the island for daily supplies. The metro at Pont Marie, #7 line pink, just across the bridge, along with the large grocery store at St. Paul, is very close.
