This Company has a well run friendly and trust worthy service. I have stayed in two apartments and booked a third for Sept. Well run clean and as described in the website. When booking online it is worth knowing you will get what you paid for - I recommend this service

The apartment was clean, beautifully furnished and well supplied. It was exactly...

We took the one bedroom in the Rue Isle St Louis. Perfection. Dreamy. These people are super reliable and I will now use all their apartments. No problems picking up the key and the perfect location. The photos are real, though as you can imagine the real thing is always a bit smaller than the snaps.

My wife and I stayed for 6 nights at apartment #14, which was ideally placed—on the rue de Rivoli across the street from the Louvre—for the work I needed to do (at the Bibliothèque nationale on rue de Richelieu) and for enjoying the city.

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.
