Europe / France / Paris
On the tranquil end of the Ile Saint-Louis, this authentic French apartment offers the perfect home away from home for a family, with the enviable combination of a central location with easy access to all that Paris has to offer
It is a well-known adage that once you have stayed in an apartment, staying in a hotel has less appeal. Those who have had the good sense to spend time on the Ile Saint-Louis know this even better than most. Once the restaurants clear out at night the streets of the little village fall quiet and a late stroll down the main street of the island can be a solitary affair. In the morning only the shopkeepers and residents are up and about early. You can walk to the bakery and take your time making selections. You can walk by ice cream haven Berthillon and actually see inside -it’s usually and rightfully thronged with people in the afternoons. Having the Ile Saint Louis as your neighborhood is special indeed, and Ile Flottante is the ideal pied a terre to create an unforgettable experience.
In a classic building with elevator on the east side of the island, the apartment is spacious and sunny. The living-dining room area is casually furnished with a mix of contemporary and antique pieces carefully chosen by the American owner. The dining table accommodates six, and the kitchen is fully equipped for preparing simple or more elaborate meals. The large bedroom has elegant crown moulding and is richly furnished with an impressive armoire and chest of drawers. There is a king-sized bed and in-wall closets. The main bathroom has a tub with wall-mounted shower and curtain, with single sink and WC. The washing-machine dryer is also in this bathroom.
Downstairs is a second bedroom of identical proportions, with a king-sized bed that can be split into twin beds. Under the stairs is a quirky half-bath – a shower for people under 6’ and a sink. Occupants of this bedroom use a guest powder room near the entrance of the apartment.
Between the bewitching location, sunny spaces and sophisticated yet welcoming furnishings, Ile Flottante has a lot to offer Paris novices and experts alike.
