Situated on the Ile Saint Louis facing the river Seine and located in between the right and left banks of Paris, this typical 17th century hostelry offers you a superb and romantic Parisian
Really comfortable studio with wonderful views and excellent location. Patric was a fantastic host - at check-in he gave us a very thorough tour of the well-appointed apartment, with suggestions for nearby bakeries and restaurants. Patric was also great with communications throughout our stay. Even provided some "getting started" drinks and food in the fridge and cupboards. There's a nice wine bar downstairs, and most of the major sights are within a 30 minute walk of this location. A great place from which to enjoy Paris!
Patric's apartment was beautiful and spacious and exactly as represented in the listing, and Patric himself was easy to communicate with. Upon arriving he explained all the workings of the apartment, the appliances, etc., and took time to answer any questions. He also stocked the kitchen with some staples to make the first couple of days easier for us - milk, juice, bottled water, beer, yogurt and butter, croissants and baguettes! The apartment was very large and comfortable (the bed especially is very comfy) - it really felt like home. And the views of the Seine are incredible. Also the location is perfect - waking distance to many sights and popular neighborhoods, and multiple subway stops within minutes of the doorstep - and Ile St Louis itself is a charming place to explore and enjoy cafes, gelato, boulangeries, fromageries, wine shops and gift shops. We had such a nice time we were reluctant to leave. I would stay in this apartment again if I return to Paris for another visit. Highly recommend!
We were not yet out of our airport transportation when Patric rushed out to meet us. He let us know he would be at the apartment well in advance of our arrival. Our first impression of the apartment was that it was very much larger than we expected (it is the only apartment on the 1st floor) and that the view from the windows was going to be difficult to pull ourselves away from. The apartment, the location of the apartment, the friendly and helpful host, Patric - all were beyond our expectations. Patric made sure that we, in our jet lagged state, could operate all the appliances, the cable TV, and wireless connection before leaving us. The layout of the apartment the furnishings and the bed allow for total comfort. The location was perfect for exploring areas in our very favorite city, Paris, the Latin Quarter, the Marais, the Ile de la Cité , and the Ile St-Louis - a wonderful little "village" in itself. To find that the building we were staying in (as well as most of the other buildings on the island), were built in a year that America was first being settled gave us an incredible historical perspective. We would have a difficult time staying anywhere else in Paris! It was so perfect for us and what we were looking for on our 20th visit to Paris - one where we lived in Paris in Patric's beautiful apartment by the River Seine for a month. The friends we made on the island will be friends for life. We cannot wait to return.
Patric's apartment was perfect, with fantastic views of the Seine and of the Pont Marie. It was definitely more spacious than is apparent in the photographs; for example, we left the "Murphy bed" (which was quite comfortable) down during our entire stay because it was totally out of the way of the rest of the apartment. The apartment was easily accessible, being up only one level from the street. The music from the bar below was not intrusive, transmitted mainly via some low-level vibrations from the bass notes . . . not enough to wake us up. And, of course, Ile Saint-Louis is an ideal location both for the amenities of its own neighborhood and for its ready access to excellent restaurants, arts and entertainment in the rest of Paris. We shall definitely try to book this apartment next time we travel to Paris!
Patric's apartment was amazing! A really perfect location with the best view of the river. It's like being at a cafe being able to people watch but with the comfort of being able to be in your temporary home away from home. Patric was so helpful with communication beforehand and even upon leaving he helped us get a taxi to the airport. The apartment is surprisingly spacious for a studio, the bed comfy, the living/dining areas great and just a second away from being on the Seine with a bottle of wine. Loved it!
Patric met us at the apartment timely and was wonderful, explaining everything we would need to know about the appliances etc. He also gave us information about the area and even had the fridge stocked with some essentials like milk, orange juice, butter. He had fresh bread from the local bakery! Really nice and over the top. The unit was spacious and lovely, what a view. Extremely comfortable and I would definitely stay again!
Patric is a wonderful host. He took the time to explain all of the workings of his apartment and even the local amenities in the neighborhood. The apartment is charming and very comfortable. I recommend his place for the convenience of the location, the pleasantries of the host and the adorable space.
