This perfectly situated apartment on the island of Ile Saint Louis brings you back to the old world. Just a few steps up the street from the apartment doorway is the Seine with a magnificent view of Notre Dame, the Pantheon, and the Left Bank. Apart from its beauty, this small island, in the center of Paris, is dotted with many specialty shops and restaurants, including the famed ice cream shop Berthillon. Summertime brings outdoor street performers and picnics along the banks of the river. The colder months feel poetic, with white skies and shiny cobblestone streets from yesterday’s rain. And you are just a bridge away from nearby central locations Saint Michel and the Marais.
Located on the 1st European floor (2nd US) in a walk up building, the apartment itself fits perfectly into the mood of the island. Its oak floors, pale brown walls, and warm tones, bring warmth to its elegance. Notice the antique window handles which are mermaid shaped, and the artwork brought back from travels to the East.
One enters the apartment through a small vestibule leading in four directions; to the right is the bathroom with a large walk-in shower and tiled with Roman-looking mosaics and pebble flooring. Here you’ll find a clothes- washer and separate dryer, an unusual luxury in Paris! The WC is separate for easy access for all.
To the left of the bathroom door is the kitchen, which is especially pleasant because just beyond the sink area is a wood counter, which is actually in the living room, so that while you are washing up, you look out into the living room and towards the street-side windows. The kitchen is equipped with everything you’ll need including a large refrigerator and separate freezer, dishwasher, coffee maker, microwave, and a 4 burner gas stove. Perfect to prepare all the local cuisine!
The brown toned living room has a leather sofa bed and small wicker table with 3 chairs. A wall-to-wall mirror makes the room feel spacious and its Persian sculptures add to the elegance. Just beyond the living room is the den, which can be closed off with its sliding door, making a bedroom, or left open to make the living room space larger. Lots of wood, warm tones, a large closet and elegant curtains make this room cozy and practical if used as a bedroom. You’ll find a trundle bed in this room which can become two single beds or together can form a large queen bed. This is where the wall-mounted flat screen TV is located. Also included in this apartment is free WiFi and free calls to North America.
Head down the narrow curved hallway and you reach the main bedroom, with separate WC just across the hallway. This bedroom is beautiful, with its marble fireplace and mirror, and its queen bed with Persian headboard. A ceiling fan spins around the overhead light. Its elegant old world style makes you feel as if you walked into a Proust novel. A large closet, whose sliding doors are full-length mirrors, gives you space to comfortably organize your clothes.
Let this home bring you back to the Paris of yesteryear's, encompassing centuries of French history flavored with Romanticism and enjoy the best and most refined of what Paris has to offer.
