New Apartment! Cozy, bright and sunny loft on Quai aux Fleurs, on the île de la Cité island in the very heart of Paris overlooking the Seine river from multiple windows with fantastic views. 4th floor apartment in a 17th century building with new elevator (US 5th floor) and high security. This area of is one of the most exclusive locations in Paris, a stone's throw from Ile Saint Louis. It is quite a peaceful and quiet part of the island, escaping the hustle and bustle of the popular tourist areas around the corner.
It is the perfect romantic spot and a film maker’s favourite, with the very building itself featured in countless movies from Stanley Donen’s “Charade” with Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn to Woody Allen’s "Midnight in Paris". The address is famous for housing the prominent short fiction writer Katherine Mansfield who lived for a time at the start of WWI in writer Francis Carco's apartment, from which she wrote several works and many detailed letters where she recounts the fascinating events outside her window and draws inspiration from the views and sights.
The stunning day and night time river views offer a truly unique and special opportunity to experience the full beauty and magic of Paris. This apartment is on the corner facing both north and east and there is as such no other place on Ile de la Cité with this unique panoramic view facing both the Hotel de Ville and Ile Saint Louis. The spectacular evening lights and the sight of the boats going by on the Seine are so special you won't even want to leave the apartment. There is even a view of Notre Dame from the bathroom. This place is a must see!
