Today the Ile Saint Louis has become a highly residential area and a privileged destination and those looking for a romantic visit or who are impassioned about history looking for a Paris that is both elegant and authentic.
In general, the island retains its reputation as a home for the upper class. The permanent owners tend to be wealthy, comfortably settled, and of an older generation that keeps to itself, observing from a distance. However, while Ile Saint-Louis remains uniquely calm compared to the rest of Paris, it has not all together escaped the rise of tourism, especially in recent years.

In spring and summertime people from around the world come to explore the tiny shops, the peaceful and romantic quays, and of course the views on the city it has to offer. The most popular attractions are certainly the original (and still functional) site of the famous home made Berthillon ice cream and the western point of the island near the Pont Saint-Louis which joins the island to the Ile de la Cité. The cafés in this area are often filled to capacity with people-watchers and sight-seers savoring both the view of Notre-Dame and a cone of Berthillon.

Stairway access leads to the lower, tree-shaded quays. Those that gather there range from musicians, to lovers, to those just reading a book or feeding the ducks that swim close to shore, protected by the island. This attests to the fact that, despite its development, the island has not lost its original function as a place for people to gather and relax in company with the Seine.
Whereas the peripheral ring formed by the quays is, in general, home to the numerous 17th century Hôtels Particuliers (noble town houses), the inner streets, most notably the sort of "main street" running the length of the island called Rue Saint-Louis-en-l'Ile, are host to more commercial venues.

Throughout its history the island has always been known for its artistic richness. Even today anyone walking down this main street would be overwhelmed by the barrage of artists' galleries that specialize in anything from sculpture to painting to glass making to hand crafted jewellery. Occasionally you may be lucky and catch a private exhibition.

Small specialty shops play an important part in the commercial atmosphere on Ile Saint-Louis. Artistic clothing stores display their colorful and sprightly creations with pride, as do the toy shops carrying novelties, children' games, and puppets (especially the magnificent puppet shop "Clair de Rêve"). A handful of bookshops scattered around Ile Saint-Louis invite strollers to peruse their collections on history, archaeology, travel, and Paris' cultural heritage. And here and there you'll find shops specializing in goods from regions around the world including East Asia and Tibet.

Food is largely present on Ile Saint Louis. All the specialty shops for daily life can be found right on the main street: butcher shops, a bakery, creamery, wine shop, cheese shop, and of course a florist providing dinner table decoration. There are also a few gourmet food shops which sell high-priced, typically French products such as tea, jams, honey, and mustard.

Where food is concerned, however, the main focus lies in the restaurants. Eating on Ile Saint-Louis can be as basic or as luxurious as you choose. There are creperies and bistros serving everyday fare with the occasional freezer case of Berthillon tucked in the corner. In addition, you'll find a few middle-of-the-road restaurants serving traditional French food in an old-fashioned "gaulois" atmosphere, and one Japanese sushi bar, "Isami", which dots the Quai d'Orléans near the Rue de Deux Ponts. But if you prefer a truly excellent meal, the Orangerie and Mon Vieil Ami are gastronomic specialists that will delight the palate and are the perfect place to celebrate an occasion.

Currently, the island's existence is both contrasting and paradoxical. While the surrounding banks explode with city life, mobs of people, and avenues congested with traffic, the island seems to escape this hustle and bustle, resembling a small town rather than a booming metropolis. At the same time, the island remains at the historical, cultural, and physical center of Paris, only minutes from some of the most well known monuments, museums, and places of interests. Ile Saint-Louis is both at the very heart of the city and removed from it in mentality.

Those that come to this unique place range in their characteristics from humble to bourgeois, French to international. They are both tourists and long-time, permanent residents. All those who come are drawn there because of its exceptional history, charm, and tranquility. A package that has delighted for centuries and will surely continue to do so well into the future.

My wife and I spent our 10-year anniversary here. She loved it and said it was the best Airbnb she's ever stayed in. Naturally, I counted this trip and choice a success. If you want to be in the most charming and romantic part of Paris in a room that reflects what's outside its doors, look no further.

We had an amazing stay in this wonderful small apartment in Paris. The best neighborhood by far. The flat is very small. The bathroom is tiny but everything was clean and decorated so beautifully. One mention is the steps getting into the apartment. If you have heavy luggage you will need to carry it up a very narrow winding staircase. Pack lightly and nothing to worry about. Very enjoyable stay and hope to return!

Adorable and perfect for a couple! It had everything that you need to stay for more than a few days. I was great to have the kitchen and washing machine and the location is unbeatable.

Although it is smaller than I expected from seeing the photos, this one-room studio is very well appointed, nice and pleasant. The location is excellent of course, who hasn't heard about Ile Saint Louis. Visitors need to know it's on the third floor, no lift (lifts are practically nonexistent in the Ile Saint Louis with the historic buildings). Not an issue unless you have difficulty climbing or a lot of luggage. There was a little trouble at check-in and Alain has been quick to clear it. He has been excellent with communications. A nice accomodation, recommended.

My wife and I had a fabulous time staying in Alain's apartment. It is as good as it looks in the pictures; everything is just right, it is exceptionally clean, and it has all of the amenities you might need for a week long (or longer) stay. The location is terrific, within walking distance of the Louve, Notre Dame, Le Marais, St. Germain, the Latin Quarter and several major metro stations. The Ile St-Louis is bustling during the day but is very quiet at night and in the early morning. Alain is a great host. We would not hesitate to rent from him again and will recommend his place to our friends and family.

Well, where to start? I have been around maybe far too much...
Anyway, Paris is a city that has charmed me from the first time I set my eyes on it.

It teaches you about beauty, food, drink and above all human culture. You cannot come to Paris and not be changed somehow.

And in the midst of all that cornucopia, there is Ile Saint Louis... The cosmopolis' oasis. Time stops in there and life has it's own pace.

Come and taste that experience. I promise you will keep coming back. Forever.
