The Issy Island Retreat offers a rare opportunity to enjoy the comforts of a spacious, luxury villa just minutes from the heart of central Paris. A stay in this extraordinary rental home begins at the foot of the Eiffel Tower. Here your chartered boat and personal captain will greet you with champagne to sip on your leisurely 30-minute cruise westward along the Seine to your private dock on the exclusive Île-Saint-Germain, a lush island in the heart of Issy-les-Moulineaux.
Follow the dock to the villa’s garden, a tranquil oasis of greenery decorated with original sculptures and complete with a large teak terrace and heated pool. Beyond the garden sits the immaculate and meticulously designed 756m2/ 8137 sq ft four-story villa with its cathedral ceilings, skylights, internal elevator, and custom-made furniture.
The living area on the main level will delight you with the custom wood and steel bar and huge, retractable bay-style windows that open onto the terrace, pool, and garden. With the windows removed, the entire area can be enjoyed as an outdoor space. A double-sided fireplace between the interior living and dining areas allows for seamless enjoyment of both spaces. The large dining table can accommodate up to twelve guests and is adjacent to a professional, eat-in-kitchen. The kitchen offers direct access to a covered outdoor dining terrace.
From the living room, climb one flight of stairs or take a quick ride in the private elevator to the second floor, which features a cozy music room, with a beautiful Steinway & Sons grand piano and a multimedia room that can be used for viewing movies or hosting professional meetings. This floor offers space that is wonderfully conducive to creativity and will inspire artists and business people alike. The large windows overlook the Seine river, pool, and garden below.
The third floor hosts an eclectic library with over 800 books collected by a lover of Brazilian and world literature and three of the villa’s four distinct bedroom suites, each with its own private bathroom and dressing area. The first bedroom suite is designed using steel to create a refined and stylish industrial ambiance, and includes a large workspace overlooking the garden. The second suite highlights the use of wood in its construction, most notably with the gorgeous platform bed. This peaceful room has a view of the Seine and the garden. Finally, the third suite embraces the industrial loft feel, showcasing the use of modern concrete. The impressive shower looks as though it has been carved out of stone.
The expansive master bedroom suite is privately located on the entire top floor and is truly a haven of peace and tranquility, with an electric fireplace embedded in a striking, wood-paneled wall and expansive views from the bay windows. The bathroom takes luxury to a whole new level with its decadent soaking tub and open two-person shower. A private Jacuzzi can be enjoyed on the adjoining balcony, alongside a personal dining table. The main suite also features a spacious dressing room, a fully-equipped gym, and a large, Turkish-style steam room.
This private four-bedroom home can sleep up to eight guests. An additional two to three people can be accommodated in the adjacent 35m2 studio apartment. The studio is lovely and comfortable but not of the same luxury standard as the rest of the villa. It has a double sofa bed, and a single bed can also be provided if needed, although space will be tight. The studio can function independently with its own fully-equipped kitchen and a full bath with shower, toilet, and sink. This is the perfect space for teenaged children, a personal assistant, a nanny, a chef, or anyone who needs to be close yet have some privacy from the main villa as well.
While central Paris is easily accessible by car or public transit, if you prefer to visit by boat, your captain will remain available throughout your stay, day and night, and will take you wherever you wish. For boating and outdoor enthusiasts, there are also canoes, kayaks, and a sculling boat with oars available for recreational use. A private two-car garage is also available.
The location of this home in the heart of Île-Saint-Germain in Issy-les-Moulineaux is unmatchable, and your stay here is sure to feel almost surreal. This beautiful neighborhood is filled with many beautiful architecturally unique homes and artist studios, and it sits adjacent to a 44.5-acre park with a natural garden, equestrian club, and a restaurant.
Île-Saint-Germain is understandably one of the preferred locations for those in the know who wish to indulge in the ultimate luxury of an exclusive, private home, just minutes from the heart of Paris’ city center. The Issy Island Retreat is the ideal spot for a family vacation, a once in a lifetime event, a business retreat, or a group of friends vacationing together. This property can be rented for special events such as weddings, wine tastings, fashion week, business meetings, yoga retreats and cooking getaways. Large groups can comfortably gather during the day. There is room for seminars and conferences of up to 100 people. Dinner for up to 80 can be provided and breakfast for up to 100. For cocktail parties, groups of up to 150 can be accommodated.

Issy-les-Moulineaux is a Parisian suburb located along the left bank of Seine River, just southwest of central Paris. The area offers an authentic French-living experience in a lovely, tranquil setting, all within easy access of the many attractions and activities to be found in the City of Light. Issy-les-Moulineaux is a wonderful place for those who enjoy an outdoor lifestyle. There are numerous delightful parks, green spaces, and a botanical garden, collectively spanning over 130 acres. Issy’s prime attractions lie on the Île Saint-Germain, an exclusive island that on one side features an upscale, residential neighborhood with many artist studios and unique homes built by famous architects, such as Philippe Starck. On the other side of the island, a five-mile promenade highlights wonderful river views as it wanders through verdant forests, multiple thematic gardens (including lavender and wildflowers), an equestrian club, a restaurant, a discovery trail for children, and more. Issy-les-Moulineaux and the Île Saint-Germain offer a range of restaurants and dining options, as well as cafés, supermarkets, pharmacies, banks, and more. For those who like water sports, options are available from sailing to canoeing, sculling, and kayaking. Central Paris is a quick metro, taxi, or boat ride away, allowing you to be able to enjoy all the famous sights and culture of the capital whenever you wish.
