'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-Près; 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.

About Owner Representative

We love Paris & enjoy sharing our home.

Owner Representative purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Owner Representative chose Paris Arr. 4 (Marais, Hotel de Ville)

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

Terrific host and location--definitely would go back

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is definitely "as advertised." Unfortunately we hit Paris during a historical heat wave so I would caution anyone booking during the hot months as the apartment does not have air conditioning. It was brutal! That said, the host (Jenn) obviously had no control over the weather and did everything she could to ensure a memorable trip for us so definitely take advantage of getting her advice before arriving. The apartment is well-equipped and very comfortable for a family of four. It's a short walk to Notre Dame, some terrific restaurants and great local shopping. You really would not need to leave the block and have yourself a great time. Give this place a try on your next trip to Paris. You'll be glad you did!

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!

Perfect location, great apartment

  • 5 of 5

Staying on the island was great! The apartment was at the end of the street that had everything you could need. The apartment itself was the perfect size for our foursome. It had a study with tv, a dining room and living room. The bedrooms were large with very comfy beds. The two showers and toilets made getting ready in the morning easy. I would definately stay at this apartment again.

Beautiful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is bright, spacious, comfortable and the perfect location in Paris.

King size beds were very comfortable with large bedrooms overlooking an inner courtyard, it was incredibly quiet at night. The two sitting areas had comfortable couches, felt like home.

Main shower had excellent water pressure and lots of hot water. The lower bathroom had an electronic toilet that you can't put paper in, no sink and tiny shower.

The apartment manager met us when we arrived, she was very pleasant and helpful.

St. Regis cafe down the street serves a wonderful breakfast. We love staying on Ile St Louis, nights and mornings are quiet and it has many metro accesses. We would stay here again.

Perfect Apartment in the Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband, teenage daughter, and I just returned from a week in this lovely third-floor apartment at the quiet end of the Ile St. Louis. The central location provides walking access to many of the top sights, the Left Bank, and the Marais. We loved being tucked away at the quiet end of the street, but within a few blocks of all the needed shops. The apartment is beautifully appointed with unique furnishings and feels authentically Parisian. The kitchen was compact but furnished with all we needed for daily breakfast and an occasional meal. The two bedrooms had ample space and very comfortable beds. One bedroom is separated from the rest of the apartment by a set of stairs, which we didn't mind. Only issue to take into account is that sound travels throughout the building from the common areas. This is not a problem, but you do need to be mindful of not disturbing the neighbors as you come and go. We loved the apartment and hope to return someday.

Map

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.
