“Always Great”
Reviewed 4 January 2014

This ile is a little gem inside Paris and the streets on the iles provide some wonderful discoveries. Whether it be stores, restaurants or to just look at the outside of the most expensive apartments in Paris. All wonderful.

“Island High Street”
Reviewed 25 August 2013

We were staying on the island as a climax to our summer visit to France. The street runs the length of the island and has a surprising variety of shops, including a boulangerie, supermarket and, of course, souvenir shops. Take your time to wander along its length starting from Ile de la Cité and include a visit to the church, where I suggest you pause a while and contemplate your next steps on this gem of an island in the middle of paris.

“Charming island, picturesque with interesting shopping”
Reviewed 29 June 2013

This is a charming island in the middle of the Seine in central Paris. It is connected to both banks of the river and to L'ile du cite and Notre Dame. But its value lies in the small interesting shops, galleries and restaurants which are located along this central road. You can spend some very pleasant hours meandering along the road exploring these establishments.

“Paris in a village”
Reviewed 31 January 2013

This is a wonderful tiny island in the middle of the Seine a short walk from Notre Dame. It has everything you could wish for a short break. Cheese shops, bakeries, wine shops, great restaurants to suit all budgets, cafes and galleries, and lovely quaint hotels.

“Christmas in Paris”
Reviewed 14 December 2012

We rented an apartment in Rue st. Louis en l'ile for our Christmas vacation 2011. The lodgings were charming beyond belief. Small, but excellently furnished, quiet and cheaper than any hotel. The presence of boulangeries and small "alimentations" secured a marvelous breakfast every morning. The street was lined with charming shops and galleries, and the staff was friendly and helpful. One night, we dined at a small restaurant whose name escapes me. The food was nice, the owner was chatty, and when time came for coffee and dessert, we were presented with two glasses of cognac. On the house, just because we were Americans. How times have changed!
