“Great location - perhaps not the best choice in summer....”

We stayed for a week in July. We had a good stay. Mark and his partner were excellent to deal with.

First up (there is no getting around it) the apartment is small, even by European standards. We moved the table around so that the suitcases didn't take up all the floor space. After three months living in hotels we were used to 'cosy' spaces, and the apartment is a similar size to most hotel rooms.

Also, there is a thin, winding staircase to the apartment. I had been hauling my suitcase around for three months and have no mobility issues, and this is the only place I doubted that I could get up the stairs. I only had problems when carting the suitcase, otherwise it was OK. I would not recommend this apartment for anyone with mobility issues or young children.

We stayed during summer and had asked if there was air-conditioning. There was a portable unit which unfortunately made no difference (other than constant noise). It was often cooler outside than inside. We were pretty uncomfortable due to the temperature most of our stay.

The bathroom and kitchen are adequate and the internet is excellent. Mark provided two maps of Paris.

The location on Ile St Louis is lovely. We had walked around the island on a previous trip, which made us want to stay here this time. In hindsight, I should have also realised that there would be hundreds of people 'strolling' the island whenever we stepped outside. We did stay during peak season, but be aware that it is not a quiet little getaway. The footpaths are full from around 11am each day.

The apartment and location have a lot of character. The main issues we had were due to the time of year we visited (hot weather and big crowds). I would recommend this apartment for 1-2 people in a quieter season.

This is a lovely small, but comfortable apartment in a great central location. The air conditioning was very welcome in the hot week that we were in Paris. All communications and transactions with owner Mark were very smooth and pleasant. We would definitely consider staying here again.
