This three-bedroom apartment is ideally located on the quay de Bourbon. The very exclusive area of Ile St Louis is mostly residential and one of the most select and beautiful Paris neighborhoods. In the middle of the island, there are numerous little shops, cozy crêperies, and smart restaurants, often in vaulted cellars which make an attractive setting for an elegant meal. The harmony of the closely packed houses, the little cafes where a petit café can be enjoyed at leisure, the quiet quays and the aura of the past which pervades the island, give it a particular charm.
The Seine Islands are the egg from which Paris was hatched. Ile de la Cite lies quietly in the shadow of Notre Dame. The home of French kings until the 14th century, the island still maintains its medieval air. An iron bridge leads to the Ile Saint Louis, the smaller and quieter island of the two river islands, which has remained as it was in the 17th century. It is very close to the Hôtel de Ville, the Latin Quarter and the Panthéon.
