About the location
Île Saint-Louis is one of the prettiest and most prestigious neighbourhoods in Paris, with its elegant 17th century townhouses lining the quays next to the river Seine. Already at the time when I was a student, I loved to come to this beautiful island. With friends we would stroll along the quays, sit in one of the many terraces of the cafes, discussing how the world should be. Afterwards we walked to the best icemaker in the world, Berthillon who sell his ice-cream only on the island. So ever since, this was “my” Parisian place to be.
Until today I still admire every day the architecture of the private mansions of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries and the magical walk or run along the bridges. I enjoy, particularly the beautifully preserved and authentic quarter of this jewel island, which will make for sure your stay in Paris unforgettable.
