Property description

Stay at my charming and romantic apartment located on historic Saint Louis Island, in the very heart of Paris, just 1 minute away from Notre-Dame Cathedral! All monuments are within walking distance!

I look forward to welcoming you in Paris and will do my best for you to have a wonderful experience.

CENTRALLY LOCATED IN HISTORIC SAINT LOUIS ISLAND...

A very nice, bright (facing south, it has direct light all day long), clean and tidy, newly renovated 3rd floor apartment with gorgeous views on the River Seine and lovely monuments (the Pantheon, Tour Montparnasse, Saint Sulpice church... and the tip of the Eiffel Tower!). The area is very safe and quiet: there is almost no traffic on the bank... and yet you'll be staying in the center of Paris!

SOME HISTORY

The whole river bank was built between 1614 and1646. Historic sources mention the existence of the building as early as 1637. The river bank 'Quai d'Orléans' is named after the younger brother of Louis XIII, Gaston Jean Baptiste de France, Duke d'Anjou, and later Duke d'Orléans (b. Fontainebleau, 24 april 1608 - d. Blois, 2 february 1660). After the French Revolution, is was renamed 'Equality river bank' between1792 and 1806 in order to get rid of any royal reference...

SPACE DESCRIPTION...

The apartment sleeps 2 people comfortably thanks to its queen size (140x190 cm), very comfortable, high quality sofa/bed.

It can accommodate a 3rd guest thanks to a high quality extra mattress to be put on the floor.

The 2 windows are soundproof and have light-blocking blinds. They are located on two different sides of the building, allowing a nice cross breeze between them when open. Heat is never extreme in the apartment, but the apartment is equipped with a fan.

You'll also enjoy walking on the 19th century marble floor.

EQUIPMENT includes:
- free high speed internet/wi-fi and free phone to landline numbers in most countries,
- hairdryer
- kettle, toaster, nespresso coffee machine,
- stove top, washing & drying machine, micro-wave oven, refrigerator with a freezer section
- iron & ironing board, vacuum cleaner
- I provide linens and towels - they can be changed weekly for long stays upon request
- upon check-in, refrigerator always contains complimentary food and fresh juice for your first breakfast
... and 3 deckchairs to be taken with you on the river banks just down the building for relaxing and getting a nice tan by the Seine! Summer picnics are very popular around...
