A harmonious triangle of town homes from another era with a delightful park in the middle. This is one of Paris' treasures and should not be missed. Simore Signorier and Yve Montand lived here, for good reason. Stop by at night when it sparkles.

Ile de la Cite / Ile Saint-Louis
Two islands sit in the middle of the Seine at the very
heart of Paris. The more majestic one, Ile de la Cité,
sparkles with history. This is the birthplace of
Paris, the home of the Gothic Sainte-Chapelle, and the
site of the prison where Marie Antoinette was held

Notre Dame and the beautiful bridges that straddle the
Seine. Ile Saint-Louis, the more provincial island,
