There are plenty of really nice restaurants (not necessarily cheap!) and lots of quirky shops as well

A neat neighborhood in the middle of the Seine. Definitely worth a visit. There are some nice restaurants and shops - and years ago we stayed at a neat hotel on the island- but even if you just visit to talk a walk it is a scenic place to visit.

This island was a wonderful neighborhood to stay in. There are many cafes to choose from, grocery stores, shops and creperies. It is a relatively quiet place within walking distance of many of the sights. It is a great location to base your stay in Paris.

I was here in Feb 2015. Most of the shops were closed. Seems that many stores were out of business. I don't know if this was due to the off season visit, or if the area has struggled due to some road construction. It is very cute and worth a quick walk even with the closed shops. If you are...

Very quaint little district in Paris. Not many tourists and the tiniest streets. Nice break from the bustle around Notre Dame. We went into the lovely old church where the locals were summoned to mass by the ringing of the church bells. A memorable experience.

Lovely, old and very historic area. There is a wonderful cheese shop on the little street going through the Ile. Lovely old mansions along the River.

A typical image of eternal Paris... Still quiet, this place which used to be the centre of the city in the past. Special atmosphere. That's why the prices of apartments are so high ! The best ice creams too !

This is a great place to unwind and stroll. It is not too big to enjoy. There are creperies, restaurants, and of course, Berthillon (31, Rue Saint-Louis en I'lle)- the best sorbet in the world. Wait in line for a table- there are only a few, so you can savor every bite of this wonderful ice cream and sorbet. Take... More
