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.

My Fiance got down on one knee and proposed to me in this little leafy square. It looked like he stumbled upon it purely accidentally, which is great, as I don't think he could have picked a better spot! Given we didn't know much about...More

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,

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