Thus far, there were two islands so-called "L’île aux Vaches" and "L’île Notre-Dame". They got reunited thanks to an artificial dock. With a lot of mansions, this island is pretty residential. However, the rich and famous inhabitants transformed this place into a district appreciated by those tourists who like to take an alternative way.
Since the population is only 2,500 large, the Île Saint-Louis remains a very trendy and typical village in the heart of the French capital.Baudelaire, Claudel, Blum, Pompidou used to pass by.
