FRENCH TRUE EXPERIENCE!

Please note that this apartment is 5 nights min( 2 or 3 if there is a 'free spot' in the planning).

Stay in the heart of Paris, This apartment is on the very chic and desirable Ile Saint-Louis, on the river Seine and next to Ile de la Cité and Notre-Dame. It is the most beautiful and central location in Paris. Ile Saint-Louis is an upscale neighborhood, one of the most prestigious in Paris, where you have quirky shops and restaurants, bakeries, food stores and clothes stores. You can walk everywhere from here; to museums including the Louvre and Musee D’Orsay, Pompidou Centre and Palais Royal. You are a quick stroll from the Marais, place des Vosges, Jardin Tuileries, Concorde and Champs Elysées. On the other side of Ile Saint Louis you have the Latin Quarter, Jardins du Luxembourg and Saint-Germain des Prés just a leisurely stroll away. There is a boat stop about three minutes walk from the apartment and the famous bus tours can be caught by Notre Dame which is about a five minute walk away.

There is "les voies sur berge " now just across the Seine . This is great for children and teenagers as there are outdoor concerts and cafes .

And it's a messing to have a walk on the river !!!

This charming apartment is a beautifully decorated in one of the 'Hotel Particulars” on Quai Bourbon of Ile Saint Louis on the ground floor. The location is undoubtly one of the most convenient and safest in Paris. There is hardly any need for public transport or taxis as the main attractions are within walking distance.

The apartment is situated in a building which is more than 400 years old yet has all modern conveniences. The apartment is in the second courtyard of the building so there is not a single noise from the street. It is very quiet and peaceful, great for getting over jetlag!

There are two door codes and a guardian so you are very safe.

The apartment is 64 square meters and spread over three levels the bottom being in the basement with windows.

The ground floor is the entrance into the apartment with the kitchen and living room. Then above the living room is a mezzanine bedroom with window looking onto the courtyard and below the living room there is another bedroom and bathroom with separate toilet, these are basement level and have skylights to let in natural light and proper ventilation. The whole apartment is loft like in the sense that it is open plan but each bedroom has sufficient privacy.

It has a kitchen area with original tiles and a very high glass ceiling. There is a bar.The kitchen is new and fully equipped with everything you would need to cook a complete meal, plus a dishwasher, microwave/oven and electric elements.

The living room is cozy and has floor boards and original 400 year old exposed stone walls. There is a large three seater sofa , a television with Cable, wifi and a telephone which can be used to make calls to any landline, worldwide or USA cell phone for free.

There are two bedrooms, one is on a mezzanine floor above the living room which has a double bed, this has a window looking onto the courtyard. The stairs to climb to this are attic style and may not be suitable for elderly people or todlers. (Please look at photo) The other is downstairs by the bathroom and contains two single beds which can be pushed together if desired and a large chest of drawers. This is not closed by a wall, but has heavy curtains which provide privacy and would be perfect for two young children or if you were to have guests . Please look at photos. It is so quite and peaceful, you will sleep the best you have ever slept!

The bathroom contains a shower and a separate toilet. There is a very large wardrobe and chest of drawers in the bathroom as well as a washing machine with dryer. There is also a hairdryer.

The courtyard has a small table with benchs, great for having a coffee outdoors, this area can be used by smokers too. There is central heating plus very thick stone walls which ensure that the apartment is well insulated from the summer heat and winter time cold, and there is air conditioning.

About Fargeot Isabel

I'm dance teacher (ballet and modern'jazz). i'm living in ile st louis 13 years ago at 1mn for the appartment. I travelling a lot but i like come back in this place. When i visited this appartment 'i fall in love '!!!!

I did renovation it's a little more modern but more confortable.

Fargeot Isabel purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Fargeot Isabel chose Les Îles

Because it's best place in paris to live or to spend vacation. It's so quiet and in the center of the town and for me it was dream to buy in 'ile saint louis'. And it's so charming and so 'frenchy'

And to come for airports there is RER B St Michel exit 5 parvis notre Dame (less than an hour ) and 10 mn by foot for the appartment. It's very easy to go everywhere in paris after .

What makes this apartment unique

Why this apartment verses a hotel for a trip to Paris?

Hotels in Paris are expensive and a 4 star hotel in Paris is closer to a 3 star hotel on international standards also with 60 million tourists pouring into Paris a year the service and quality is not always as one would expect.

There are two hotels on the island, Le Lutece and Jeu de Paume where double rooms start at around 250€. I have seen these rooms and they are quite small.

Also eating out 3 times a day can become very expensive. By having a base where you can prepare and eat quick inexpensive meals (baguette and cheese!) can mean huge savings. There are three bakeries located within 30 seconds of the apartment and a supermarket 5 minutes walk away, plus an out door food market close by on Wednesdays and Saturdays. There is also a fromagery (cheese monger) on the island and one of Paris best butchers. Water is drinkable from the tap, however the apartment comes with a couple of bottles of mineral water, milk tea and coffee.

THE QUAI THE SEINE ARE A MESSING!!

If you want the beds made-up and apartment cleaned every morning this can be arranged at an extra cost of 30 Euros a day.

Location

THERE IS A NEW AREA ON "THE QUAI DE SEINE"

TO HAVE A WALK ,TAKE THE SUN, WONDERFUL FOR CHILDREN TO PLAY FOOTBALL, BICYCLE SKATE, A CLIMBING WALL . TO DO SPORT THERE IS ROWING MACHINE, BICYCLE.

Best location, great host

  • 4 of 5

We loved staying at Isabel's apartment. Note that this is not well-suited for young children or people with mobility problems - both sets of stairs are very steep. I would recommend the apartment to anyone who knows they won't be spending a lot of time at home. Her beds were very comfortable.

Simply Perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay on Isle St Louis could not have been better! The location is perfectly situated to

access all the primary sites; walking at least 5 miles daily was a great way to explore the City from this location. Le Marais is The Premier old City, with many quaint places to eat, shop and explore. We visited our bakery and market around the corner, everyday, making it Our Neighborhood. The VRBO apartment is beautiful, well-accommodated, and with beds that lulled us to sleep. Highly recommend this VRBO!!!

Great location! Quaint and very European.

  • 5 of 5

I'le Saint-Louis location was very central and very comfortable with easy access to lots of museums and sites!

The apartment is secure with double combo entrances. The unit is a tight space but very workable. Probably not for folks with mobility issues. We did not spent a lot of time hanging out there. The courtyard was a nice quiet space. Miss Isobel was very easy to work with and was very helpful! It worked for us and we were glad we could use and enjoy the apartment!

A treasure!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is a little treasure, a true delight. It is decorated so smartly and located so conveniently. Isabel is most welcoming and accommodating. There were cookies, wine, and roses to greet us. She also arranged our driver from the airport. Her pages of suggestions for the island and around were most helpful. Many great restaurants.

There are challenging stairs going up and down to each bedroom, but we quickly got used to them and regarded them as part of the charm.

All in all, we loved our stay and would use this property again.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

I want to start with all the positive reviews first. We were a party of four that stayed at the rental property. I can't express how wonderful working with Isabel was. She was fantastic and very informative. Her driver Michel was also great, but the "back-up" driver was not so much.

The location of the property couldn't be better. It was easy to get around and the Seine was right outside the door.

Now for the other side of the coin. The property is beautiful to walk into with a little patio. However, the living room can only fit three people. One of us was always sitting on the floor. The a/c that is stated in the description is only in the kitchen area. This, however, was not a problem as it was very comfortable while we were there.

The property itself is narrow. What I mean by this is the stairs leading the the top bedroom only allows you to use the correct footing to ascend/descend. Also, there was no way one would get their luggage to either the top or bottom bedrooms. Our luggage stayed in the kitchen area.

Also, be aware that the bathroom is on the bottom floor.

All in all, we enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to smaller parties.

Thank you Isabel for working with us and allowing us to stay an additional night.
