The most romantic apartment in paris – the rooftops of Ile Saint-Louis.

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. If you are looking for a cozy, roof top apartment with character (this is a 17th century property), this one has it all! We wanted to find a place to rent in central Paris and decided this little island near Notre Dame was the ideal position for sightseeing all the major sights.

The Ile Saint-Louis is surprisingly intimate, with small, narrow streets and rows of beautiful old apartments. There are some fantastic boutique shopping, quality food shops and a handful of characterful cafés and restaurants.

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 the two terraces. This one is the larger of the two and a great one for the morning and lunchtime sun.

The rising sun makes this a perfect lazy breakfast spot.

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 a small apartment, perfect for two but still good for four, as the living space 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 and a joy to be in.

There are a little row of old wooden doors separating the toilet, bathroom and main bedroom. Thankfully the doors are labeled!

The kitchen is petite to say the least, but we absolutely loved it! It’s beautiful, full of character and has everything you need including a very useful coffee machine. That went down very well with the boys.

Brilliantly, you climb out this window onto the evening terrace. You’ll need to oil your knee joints for this stay!

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.

8 flights of stairs!

Even after a days walking around Paris hasn’t put us off. After all, I had thighs of steel by the end of the trip (always a silver lining).

Judith, (the owner) insists that you make yourself at home during your stay. We shopped at some brilliant little food markets Rue Cler and Rue de Buci, and laid out the table for our supper.

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. Search ‘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 Paris.

Let’s stay connected!!
