Stay in the lively Latin Quarter, just a five-minute walk from Notre Dame. Spend mornings strolling through Luxembourg Garden, just a sixteen-minute walk away, and afternoons perusing the hallowed shelves of Shakespeare and Company book store. While so much of Paris will be accessible on foot, the nearest metro stop – Saint-Michel Notre-Dame – is just a four-minute walk away and will connect you all over the city. Back at home, you’ll find a charming one-bedroom brought to life with fun wallpaper and vibrant colourful furniture. The chartreuse curtains and velvet orange sofa make for a playful sitting room, while the marble fireplace and large gilded mirror add Parisian sophistication. The eat-in kitchen is small but functional for getting your day going with breakfast or fixing up snacks, though, with so many boulangeries and restaurants nearby, we wouldn't be surprised if you ate most of your meals out. We especially love the bedroom, with its classic large French windows and blue and white curtains. Start your days with coffee at the wood dining table set against a mural of a Roman temple, and end it in the tranquil and comfortable bedroom, gazing out through patterned curtains at the bustling city.

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,...
