'Lots of tourists swarm the island in Paris, home of Notre Dame Cathedral. But far too many overlook its adorable little sister, the quaint Isle Saint-Louis just a few steps away.

This small island (Isle Saint-Louis) is like an oasis from the rush of the city. It's almost as if someone dropped a small French village into the center of Paris, as it features markets, bakeries, fromageries and cafés. While much of Paris has modernized over the years, the island remains romantically frozen in the 17th century. It is remarkably the same as it was centuries ago. It is lined with adorable boutiques, is home to its own unique ice cream and features historic attractions.

Isle Saint-Louis will appeal to:

those who like more of a small-town feel,

those who appreciate historic neighborhoods and old towns,

those who appreciate a fine meal at a sidewalk café,

those who prefer to be in the center of it all,

tourists who prefer to live like locals,

anyone who loves to shop but abhors chain stores.'

From this apartment you can easily walk everywhere....Notre Dame, La Chapelle, pont neuf; On the Left Bank: Latin Quarter/Sorbonne, St. Michel, Cluny museum, St. Germain-dés-Prés; Open markets in the 5th district; and you can walk to the Right Bank: the Marais District & all its museums, the Pompidou Center, the Hotel de Ville, the Louvre, the Opera, & outdoor markets in the 1,2,3,4th districts. There is nothing better than staying on this calm part of the island in the center of Paris.

About Owner Representative

We love Paris & enjoy sharing our home.

Owner Representative purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Owner Representative chose Notre Dame

Since Paris is a walking city, we decided to stay right in the center so we could explore any direction.

Perfect location, beautiful apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four including two teenagers who spent six days in Paris. The apartment is very comfortable and well appointed. My wife and I were returning to Paris twenty years after being there for our honeymoon, this time with children. The kids loved the apartment allowing my wife and I to spend mornings and early afternoons out together. In the afternoons the four of us would wander the city, eat in one of the nearby restaurants and then happily return to the apartment, on the quieter end of the island. We loved that it was so close to the sights and transportation options situated in a quiet neighborhood. No doubt we will return!

Enjoyed the location and apartment- read if you are a light sleeper, just be aware....

  • 5 of 5

We had a nice stay, Nov 2017, 4 people in the apartment. Our communication on the reservation and check in was easy and gave us all the information we needed. The second bedroom is downstairs, which we knew, and that was no problem for us. Bathroom had plenty of towels, nice layout and plenty of warm water for showers/baths. Beds were SO comfortable and cozy! Kitchen had all we needed and location was wonderful to walk, walk and walk. Easy access to bus lines which is a great way to get around Paris. It didn't bother us but should mention, in both bedrooms (since the second bedroom is under the first), there is a former door that is painted, bolted, sealed, and locked shut that seems to have once opened to a stairway to a different building. Around 8-9am each morning, you hear the footsteps and conversations on the marble/hard floors of people walking down, down, down the multiple flights of stairs which finishes with a door opening/closing. Same at night on Fri/Sat night, later obviously, you hear people coming in. And I think many of the places there are perhaps rentals as well since we heard various languages. Not a big deal for us, however, if you are a light sleeper, and plan to sleep late, just something to be aware of- earplugs if you are concerned perhaps or a noise machine? I wouldn't let it stop you from staying here- we enjoyed our stay very much- just sharing so people know ahead.

Owner's Response: October is a great time to be in Paris & to stay in this flat in the middle of the city makes it all that easier to discover both the right & left banks. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay! Thank you so much for the review!

Charming Apartment in the Center of Paris!

  • 4 of 5

We were three friends sharing five nights in Paris as the finale to a European adventure.

The apartment was just as described. On the quiet end of the street you are steps away from everything you need. We were met by Jenn" s assistant who gave us the complete tour of the apartment, explained all the details and answered all of our questions. The apartment was perfect for our group and made the perfect retreat after each day of touring about.

The apartment was fully stocked and we made a full meal our last night right in our own Parisian Apartment. All food and wine procured from shops down the street. A great time was had by all.

Nice, traditional French apartment in fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in late August and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The property is a nice, traditional apartment on the third floor (fourth floor in American-speak) of a lovely building. It was clean, spacious and comfortable - not luxurious like a five-star hotel, more like the home you would want if you lived in Paris. Everything you need is provided and the property manager is super helpful and responsive. The location is ideal - truly great restaurants and shops on the same street, and centrally located near key sites and Metro stops. You are in the heart of Paris yet the area is peaceful (great for a good night's sleep). I've booked apartments around the world with VRBO and this was the most trouble-free, enjoyable stay I've had; also the most accurately represented site in the listing. I would definitely stay here again.

Spectacular stay! Comfortable and perfectly located.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 absolutely loved our stay in this flat. Not only is the flat centrally located, but it is also beautifully furnished and comfortable. The quiet street/flat was a wonderful juxtaposition to days spent scouring the city. The bedding is comfortable (not a given on such flats!), the kitchen well equipped (my wife loved the Nespresso machine and bee-lined for the store to buy pods), and the common rooms light and comfortable. Our teens appreciated the wifi. We really wanted some quality family time and this flat fit perfectly with that agenda. We very much hope to return some day.

Car: not necessary

Truly the center of Paris, the island of Saint Louis is just next to the island where the Notre Dame is located. You can't get any more central! From here its easy to walk to the Left Bank (Latin Quarter, St. Germain-dés-Près) or to the Right Bank (Marais district, Louvre, Opera district)

Good local restaurants abound on the island where the famous Bertillon ice cream is served in limitless flavors. Metro & bus are easily accessible.
