For more information please contact me! ABSOLUTELY FIRST CLASS !!! ILE SAINT LOUIS : Today the Ile Saint Louis has become a highly residential area and a privileged destination and those looking for a romantic visit or who are impassioned about history looking for a Paris that is both elegant and authentic. In general, the island retains its reputation as a home for the upper class. The permanent owners tend to be wealthy, comfortably settled, and of an older generation that keeps to itself, observing from a distance. However, while Ile Saint-Louis remains uniquely calm compared to the rest of Paris, it has not all together escaped the rise of tourism, especially in recent years. In spring and summertime people from around the world come to explore the tiny shops, the peaceful and romantic quays, and of course the views on the city it has to offer. The most popular attractions are certainly the original (and still functional) site of the famous home made Berthillon ice cream and the western point of the island near the Pont Saint-Louis which joins the island to the Ile de la Cité. The cafés in this area are often filled to capacity with people-watchers and sight-seers savouring both the view of Notre-Dame and a cone of Berthillon. Stairway access leads to the lower, tree-shaded quays. Those that gather there range from musicians, to lovers, to those just reading a book or feeding the ducks that swim close to shore, protected by the island. This attests to the fact that, despite its development, the island has not lost its original function as a place for people to gather and relax in company with the Seine. Whereas the peripheral ring formed by the quays is, in general, home to the numerous 17th century Hôtels Particuliers (noble town houses), the inner streets, most notably the sort of 'main street' running the length of the island called Rue Saint-Louis-en-l'Ile, are host to more commercial venues. Throughout its history the island has always been known for its artistic richness. Even today anyone walking down this main street would be overwhelmed by the barrage of artists' galleries that specialize in anything from sculpture to painting to glass making to hand crafted jewellery. Occasionally you may be lucky and catch a private exhibition. Small speciality shops play an important part in the commercial atmosphere on Ile Saint-Louis. Artistic clothing stores display their colourful and sprightly creations with pride, as do the toy shops carrying novelties, children' games, and puppets (especially the magnificent puppet shop 'Clair de Rêve'). A handful of bookshops scattered around Ile Saint-Louis invite strollers to peruse their collections on history, archaeology, travel, and Paris' cultural heritage. And here and there you'll find shops specializing in goods from regions around the world including East Asia and Tibet. Food is largely present on Ile Saint Louis. All the speciality shops for daily life can be found right on the main street: butcher shops, a bakery, creamery, wine shop, cheese shop, and of course a florist providing dinner table decoration. There are also a few gourmet food shops which sell high-priced, typically French products such as tea, jams, honey, and mustard. Where food is concerned, however, the main focus lies in the restaurants. Eating on Ile Saint-Louis can be as basic or as luxurious as you choose. There are creperies and bistros serving everyday fare with the occasional freezer case of Berthillon tucked in the corner. In addition, you'll find a truly excellent meal, the Orangerie and Mon Vieil Ami are gastronomic specialists that will delight the palate and are the perfect place to celebrate an occasion. Currently, the island's existence is both contrasting and paradoxical. The island seems to escape the hustle and bustle, resembling a small town rather than a booming metropolis. It remains at the historical, cultural, and physical centre of Paris, only minutes from some of the most well known monuments, museums, and places of interests. Those that come to this unique place range in their characteristics from humble to bourgeois, French to international. They are both tourists and long-time, permanent residents. All those who come are drawn there because of its exceptional history, charm, and tranquillity. A package that has delighted for centuries and will surely continue to do so well into the future. More
