Do you have a question about this home or the local area?

Located in the heart of Paris’ Latin Quarter – right by the Finnish Institute in France and a two-minute walk from the Sorbonne – this home is quintessentially Parisian. From its tall, corniced ceilings to its parquet flooring and floor-to-ceiling windows offering incredible views of Notre Dame and the old Gallo-Roman baths, there’s a feeling of bohemian elegance here that captures the soul of the city. Art and books abound here – particularly in the dining room and study – offering plenty of opportunities for you to peruse the shelves while enjoying your morning coffee or evening glass of wine. With multiple desks at hand, you’re never far from a workspace when artistic inspiration strikes, nor from a Juliet balcony when quiet contemplation is called for. Whether you’re sitting down to a meal prepared by a private chef (organised by your host) or whipping up a delicious dinner in the modern kitchen courtesy of the thrice-weekly Maubert food market (a five-minute walk away), you’re sure to be pleasantly satiated by the neighbourhood’s bakeries, cheese shops and bistros. Outside of your home, Notre Dame is a ten-minute walk away, the Luxembourg Gardens are reachable in five minutes on foot, while the Louvre is just a fifteen-minute stroll from your front door.

About Île de la Cité

Ile de la Cité is one of the two natural islands known as the official epicentre of Paris, where the medieval city was founded. With only 1,000 inhabitants, it's definitely exclusive! The streets are picture perfect, with paved streets and curving walls aplenty. With these film-star looks, you’ll inevitably see a fair amount of tourists during the daytime, though you'll also see plenty of Parisians too: simply crossing the Seine,...
