All right, so it's more of a dream than a feasible plan. What I am fairly sure of is that in forty years' time Saint-Louis will probably be much the same as is today: quaint, calm and delightful.
During the recent spell of glorious weather, I've been taking in the sunshine around the city. One of my favourite places to walk is Saint-Louis. With its narrow streets and bustling cafés "it's almost as if someone dropped a small French village into the center of Paris". With no metro stations or major landmarks, it's calmer than its neighbour île de la Cité, perfect for a wander.
These two photos are ones I've taken of Saint-Louis. One is of a saxophone player by the Pont Louis-Phillipe, the other is of two fishermen.
If you are tempted by life on the île Saint-Louis then have a look at this estate agent site where you can find the latest ads. Sadly none of them are in my current price bracket, but maybe one day eh?
