This tranquil and sunny apartment in Île Saint-Louis benefits from having views over the Seine and Rive Gauche. Not only is it located on one of Paris’ top five best streets, but it’s also ideal for sightseeing on foot—the Notre Dame and the Marais are within a ten minute mosey, while a walk to the Latin Quarter will take you just under twenty minutes. Inside, the mix-match antique furniture looks effortlessly curated and we loved the collection of exotic figurines and masks; we could have spent hours poring over each artefact. After the great location, our favourite feature is the vast amount of sunlight that floods into every room, making this home the ultimate spirit lifter. Pull open the windows and watch riverboats cruise by as you consider extending your stay just that little bit longer.
Home truths: *The sleeping arrangements for guests five and six include the sofa bed in the living space or futons in the twin room—but to ensure there's enough space for everyone, we recommend staying as a party of four
*If you do wish to stay as a party of six, let your host know upon booking if you wish to use the futons
*The apartment is on the third floor with no lift so it could be tricky for those with heavy suitcases or limited mobility
*There is no air-conditioning in this home but fans will be provided—just ask your host
*The courtyard is a communal space
