Beautiful apartment in a great location with all the amenities of home (if your home is a 5-star hotel inside of an historic Parisian building!). The best part about the location is that you get to know the neighborhood and the winemonger, the cheese guy, and most important the boulangerie. Our liaison, Leandro, was very welcoming and quick to respond to our queries. In fact, he was able to accommodate us for two extra days when our flight was canceled. Highly recommend.
My husband and I just stayed in this beautiful apartment for a week and it was absolutely perfect for us. We were met by Leandro when we arrived and he showed us around and explained everything we'd need to know during our stay. The apartment was a great size for 2 people, compact but not tiny, and had every comfort you could need.
My only complaint was that it was a bit too cold inside for my liking (but I am Australian and not at all used to a French winter!) - I would have been more comfortable if the apartment could have been heated a little warmer. That said, the bed was very warm so we were nice and cosy at night.
The apartment is up 3 flights of stairs, a crazy little circular stairway that was a bit hard to navigate with our bags but not a huge issue.. it may be tougher for older guests though.
Having a washing machine was a big plus for us, it's great to be able to wash clothes as you go rather than having to do it all when you get home. There were a couple of English news channels which was great, and music channels that alternated between English and French language music.
L'Ile Saint-Louis is centrally located and an easy walk from Le Marais and Saint-Germain - there was lots of shopping and eating options close by. We didn't bother with the metro at all - we were able to walk most places and only got a cab a couple of times (they are a lot cheaper than Aussie cabs!). Notre Dame is just on the next island and you can hear the bells chiming from inside the apartment, pretty surreal.
One of the most famous/best ice-creameries in Paris (or the world!) is right outside the front the door, and there are also bakeries, patisseries, cheese and meat stores right on the street. All food groups were covered!
All in all we had an excellent stay - Paris is such a beautiful city, every corner you turn offers breath taking scenery.. I really hope we'll be back soon and wouldn't hesitate to stay in this apartment again.
What a wonderful experience all round. Our four night stay in Ile Saint Louis was ideal thanks to Vinicius & Eduardo's beautiful modern apartment in an old building. Just as the pictures show only better with the atmosphere that you soak in as soon as you arrive.. A true Parisian lifestyle, just as we imagined. Mariane met us and was very professional yet friendly. She went out of her way to ensure we were comfortable with everything in and around the apartment. Even gave us tips on where to find the best ice cream! It's well serviced, clean with everything you need, yet uncluttered.
We'd definitely love to come back.
We felt really welcomed and happy in the flat! it was carefully designed, clean and chic.
My son and I just returned from a week long stay in Paris. The apartment was absolutely perfect! Central location ( got quite busy at times, but apartment was perfectly quiet with windows closed). Vinicius and Arthur were easy to work with, and we couldn't have asked for a better place to relax after our long days of exploring. There are three steep flights of stairs to reach the apartment, but it wasn't a problem for us. We will definitely look forward to staying here again!
This apartment was super adorable and in a great location! Everything looked like the pictures and the service was great! Stay here and you will not be sorry!
We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful apartment. Through the blue door, up the winding green staircase, into a quiet haven on an idyllic Parisian street. The layout of the apartment is very comfortable, and it is beautifully renovated -- modern with historical touches preserved. Just outside the door are an excellent bakery, cheese shop, market, diner, chocolatier, church bells, pigeons -- all you could want. A few doors down, we found a perfect neighborhood restaurant called Sorza -- such a friendly place, we went twice in a weekend. Eduardo was a great host and negotiating the stay with Vinicius and Arthur via email was a breeze. Highly recommended on all fronts.
