A stunning riverside location on the Quai de la Tournelle on the Seine’s Rive Gauche. This bright apartment combines modern fittings and traditional features creating an open-plan and social space.
With hardwood parquet flooring throughout, the large welcoming entrance hall is spacious and light. Through into the living room illuminated by two huge windows that provide cosy extra seating on deep cushioned window ledges. It would be easy to while a day away with a library wall and coffee table full of books. Through to the formal dining room with seating for up to 8 guests with soft lighting and sculptural décor.
The cool, masculine kitchen has a high gloss suite and a breakfast bar for casual dining. One double bedroom overlooking the street below with a smart ensuite with a bathtub and showerhead. The second bedroom has a single bed and double sofa bed and an ensuite with walk-in shower.
Located on the banks of the River Seine just across the bridge from St. Louis and Cité islands this apartment is surrounded by stunning examples of gothic, art nouveau and baroque architecture. These charming islands bobbing between the Left and Right banks of Paris are full of candle-lit bistros, local boulangeries and book shops to explore. A stroll around the islands at dusk is undeniably romantic, perhaps due to the associated tales of medieval Notre-Dame.
Victor Hugo’s novel Notre-Dame de Paris kick-started a major gothic revival and probably prevented the planned destruction of its namesake. Based in the Latin Quarter you will not be short of delicious brasseries and hidden jazz caverns.
Along the Seine pop in to Shakespeare & Company a well-loved English book shop. You can also walk to the Jardin du Luxembourg, a beautifully maintained 15th Century park comprising English and French gardens commissioned by Queen Marie de Medicis. Wander along Rue Mouffetard for colourful fromageries and flower markets.
