This charming apartment is perfectly located in the heart of Paris on the island of I'le Saint Louis in the Seine. Notre Dame on the neighboring island of I'le de la Cite is just minutes away and can literally be seen from the apartment window.

Because I don't want to many of you to come to this peaceful, very French part of tourist-loaded Marais. It all started with Google.

Staying in Ile de la Cite / Ile Saint-Louis

Neighbourhood Profile
Ile de la Cite / Ile Saint-Louis
Two islands sit in the middle of the Seine at the very heart of Paris. The more majestic one, Ile de la Cité, sparkles with history. This is the birthplace of Paris, the home of the Gothic Sainte-Chapelle, and the site of the prison where Marie Antoinette was held before her execution. Tourists flock to see the iconic Notre Dame and the beautiful bridges that straddle the Seine. Ile Saint-Louis, the more provincial island, welcomes you with cozy traditional eateries, small boutiques, and what some people say is the best ice cream in the city. This is essential Paris from its very beginnings to its modern appeal.
