Could this be the most romantic apartment in Paris? It’s intimate, oozing charm and has 2 terraces with views of Ile Saint-Louis that stir you.
We have stayed twice at this tiny but perfectly formed apartment in the rooftops. Both times we rushed to the breakfast terrace first to drink in the view.
You can hear the hustle and bustle below of the quaint and boutique filled Rue Saint-Louis en L’Ile from here.
The rising sun makes this a perfect lazy breakfast spot.
Even if its a chilly April morning.
Step inside the French doors (literally!) and I’ll give you a quick tour. When the elegant Judith (the proud and lucky owner) greeted us there was chatter about monks and woodwork and some such.
This is actually the living space but nicely converts into another bedroom. Convenient little bar is within arms reach.
The space is full of quirky paneling and vintage chandeliers. It has, we all conclude, a good feel, a good energy.
Thankfully the doors are labeled!
The main bedroom is pretty special. Judith has style and one that suits this apartment so well.
Into the bathroom, where a gorgeous but gigantically sized mirror and bathroom unit greets you.
Stylish touches are everywhere.
The kitchen is petite. It’s beautiful tho’ and has everything you need including a very useful coffee machine. That went down very well with the boys. You climb out this window onto the evening terrace. You need to oil your knee joints for this stay!
The cabinet is full of scrumptious glasses, cups, plates and more.
The evening terrace has a brilliant little barbecue, is quite the sun trap and has views of Notre Dame no less.
Being a 17th century residence there is no lift. Being a rooftop apartment in Paris means you need to climb 8 flights of stairs to get there. This is us on our way to our 25th Wedding Anniversary re-vows. So we are smiling. And we are going down.
Still smiling. Still going down. Even climbing up after a days walking in Paris didn’t put us off. After all, I had thighs of steel by the end of the trip (always a silver lining).
Judith insists that you make yourself at home during your stay. We shopped at some brilliant little markets Rue Cler and Rue de Buci, so laid out the table for our supper.
Her tableware is so beautiful that the whole experience is enhanced.
Plates of this and that from the markets are placed on the coffee table.
Never has a simple meal looked so elegant.
Time to sit on the terrace and enjoy one more glass of wine and the ever changing, ever giving view.

We booked with Judith through airbnb ‘Paris luxury on the Ile Saint Louis’.
There, I’ve shared it. I’ve done something nice for man and woman kind. I only have myself to blame when I struggle to find availability at this most romantic apartment in the rooftops.
