Our apartments are in the heart of Paris -- 2 are on Ile Saint Louis and the rest are in other centrally located and cool areas. Immerse yourself in all the history, arts and culture of Paris.  Spend less time on the Metro or taxis and more time strolling from place to place. Why stay in a hotel when you can take home all the treasures of Parisian markets and prepare them in your own well-equipped kitchen? Of course, there are far too many fantastic restaurants to just dine in. Our apartments are in centuries-old buildings yet have all the comforts of home, such as cable TV, WiFi and in-home washer & dryer. Live like a local in a short-term furnished apartment just steps from the Seine.

The Neighbourhood

The Ile Saint Louis was the only planned development in Paris, being settled in the 17th Century, when many lovely hotel particuliers were built. Our apartment is in a small 18th century building, and occupies all of 1er etage (2nd floor American).
Most of the buildings on the Ile Saint Louis are now protected, and cannot be modified or torn down. Many famous people have called Ile Saint Louis their home over the centuries, such as Balzac, President Pompidou, and Helena Rubinstein (who tore down a beautiful building in the 50′s and constructed something in the Art Deco Style).
The building dates from the 18th century and is secure and well-maintained. A business office is on the ground floor, so there is nothing happening after business hours. A preschool garden is directly opposite and the children go home at 4 or 5 pm.

Amenities

The apartment is fully equipped and accessorized for comfortable elegant living. There is a new flat screen TV with premium cable channels such as CNN, BBC, and Canal Jimmy, as well as free WiFi. Bring your laptop and you can get online quickly and easily. If you do not want to bring a laptop, there are several reasonably priced internet cafes a few steps away. The 09 line allows unlimited phone calls to the US and Canada and some other countries.

The Neighbourhood

We did a lot of research and looked at a lot of apartments before buying Git le Coeur. We wanted a place in a cool neighborhood that was easily accessible to all the major attractions, yet not in the most touristy area.

The Git le Coeur apartment has a fabulous view of the Seine from the living room and bedroom. You can also see part of the Louvre, the Pont Neuf, and Le Quai des Orfevres as you watch the boats (filled with less fortunate visitors) pass by your window.

The site was formerly the palace of a mistress of Francois 1er. This burned down in 16th Century, and was replaced by 4 separate structures. One is Hotel du Vieux Paris, which used to be a seedy hotel where Jack Kerouac and the beats holed up – it now has four stars.The apartment is in a small charming 17th Century building on 3ieme etage – four floors up. There is no elevator. The apartment occupies the entire floor, and is very well laid out – with no wasted space – although it is only 50 m2.

Amenities

The apartment is fully equipped and accessorized for comfortable elegant living. Most of the linens, china and silver were purchased in the USA. There is a new flat screen TV with premium cable channels such as CNN, BBC, and Canal Jimmy, as well as free WiFi. Bring your laptop and you can get online quickly and easily.

  • The Apartment

    • The apartment is in one of the most beautiful and prestigious areas of Paris, and very close to all major attractions. It has two bedrooms, two full bathrooms and is a very spacious 80 m2, with a 22 m2 terrace.

      The apartment is painted in neutral colors throughout and hardwood floors were installed in 2004. We also updated the kitchen and bathrooms.

      There are two bedrooms at the quiet rear of the apartment, each with a king size bed. Both bedrooms open onto the terrace. There is also a separate kitchen with a new four-burner gas stove, oven and a new dishwasher. The kitchen window looks onto the terrasse. A casual dining area / office area off the kitchen also looks onto the terrace. The casual dining room is furnished with a table to seat six and a sideboard that holds china, etc.

      The double living room with four windows looks onto the trees of the preschool across the street. The children go home at 4 or 5 pm, so there is no noise after this time. There is an antique mahogany dining table with eight chairs along a beautiful exposed stone wall. The table can seat 12 with two leaves. Also in the living room is a sofabed, which opens into a double bed.

      One bathroom has a shower, a new Bosch washer and a dryer, and a toilet. There is another bathroom that is split — a toilet and sink are in one room, and a tiled shower is in another. See the Photos for more details, including a floorplan.

    • “We loved the apartment , and our French friends were very impressed with the beams – said they must date from the 17th Century. We enjoyed moving the dining table to the window and watching the boats and the Seine during dinner.”

      - CJ, Mexico

      - J and G, Pennsylvania

      “Your apartment is perfect, we really loved it. The location on Ile Saint Louis could not be better. It was a marvelous visit, and again thank you. I hope that we will be able to rent your apartment another time, perhaps for a longer visit.”
      -A and C, Illinois

These Paris apartments are owned by a group of families who live in California, USA, Queensland, Australia, and Dublin, Ireland. We are of British / Australian / Peruvian / American / French origins.

One of our daughters was living and working in Paris for a year, and during this period we decided it would be wonderful to own an apartment in this beautiful city, and not to have to stay in small cramped hotel rooms. Being able to bring home the wonderful produce, cheeses, and meat etc. available in the markets makes a Paris stay much more enjoyable, not to mention less costly. Being able to have breakfast in our own apartment without dressing to go out for an expensive coffee and croissant has been wonderful as well.

We like to entertain, and we also appreciate being able to cook and welcome friends to our temporary home.

Git le Coeur:The first apartment in a small 17th century Building on rue Git le Coeur in the 6th arrondisement in February 2000, and we were immediately able to rent it using the Internet. In the process we have met many wonderful people, some people have returned every year.

 
Ile Saint Louis I: is on rue Saint Louis en L’Ile is in a small 18th Century building. Purchased in 2003 and remodeled. We painted it, added some modern appliances, and added hardwood floors – parquet as the French say – everywhere except for the bathrooms and kitchen.

 

Ile Saint Louis II: is the third apartment on Ile Saint Louis and in the same 18th Century building as Ile Saint Louis I. The entire building was remodeled in 2005. We added this apartment to our site in 2009 and it is full of character and charm.

 

Champs Elysees: is in another cool Central Paris location. Recently renovated, this apartment is just gorgeous, with a really efficient layout, tons of natural light and a sleeping loft.

 

Atelier: The apartment is in a gentrified area of 17th arrondisement. The ground floor apartment opens into a flower-filled courtyard. The Apartment was a scupltor’s studio before being totally restored by its current owner in 2002.

 
We hope you will enjoy staying in our Paris apartments as much as we do.
