Four girlfriends in Paris. Great location in 2nd arrondissement. A bit noisy at night but apartment just like the photos. Very comfortable. Good bathroom and kitchen. Modern appliances. Handy to have washing machine in apartment. Lift very small but did work most of the time. The only thing that would have been helpful was instructions for tv and washing machine.... More

After reading a review in our local West Australian newspaper, we decided to give Special Apartments a try. So happy we did so. Communication between us and Jessica was always responded to quickly over the past 12 months since we booked. We had Apartment #045 in Rue des Gravilliers, Marais District. To be honest we were a bit wary standing... More

After researching online, we booked an apartment through "Special Apartments" and found the process very easy thanks to Regis and Jessica. We chose Apt #23 in the heart of the Marais district for our stay in Paris. Despite our delayed arrival into CDG, our driver from Green Shuttle who Jessica had arranged, was waiting. Jessica welcomed us warmly at the... More

We stayed in #037 in the Ile St Louis, for now the third time, which is obviously the highest recommendation we can give it. Ideally located, the apartment is spacious and well-equipped. Although not for the physically frail, given the 100-add stairs of the narrow winding staircase, it has a view over the rooftops to Notre Dame from the loft... More

Rent an apartment from Cobblestone if you want to live like a Parisian. We stayed in Voyage de Isle St. Louis March 29-Apr. 3.

We arrived at night and finding the office to pick up our key was very difficult. The apartment itself was easy to find. It was beautiful, had very fast internet, spacious (but not as much as the photos made it look!) and very close to a Metro station and many attractions. Would stay here again :)

I stayed in this apartment for 3 weeks and it was superb! The apartment was wonderful, very clean and simple. It looked like the pictures you posted, the location was perfect, it was great that it had an elevator and a security code to get into the building.

We very much enjoyed our stay in Special Apartments #45. It will definitely be the way we will stay in Paris from now on. The apartment was charming, very well equipped and in a very central location. It was also half the price of the usual hotel we stay at!

Staying in Ile de la Cite / Ile Saint-Louis

Neighbourhood Profile
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 before her execution. Tourists flock to see the iconic Notre Dame and the beautiful bridges that straddle the Seine. Ile Saint-Louis, the more provincial island, welcomes you with cozy traditional eateries, small boutiques, and what some people say is the best ice cream in the city. This is essential Paris from its very beginnings to its modern appeal.
