Le Saint Jacques : Breathtaking Paris Vista from Your Lofty Apartment

Bedrooms 1
Space 55 m²
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 4 nights


About the property

1 queen bed + 1 convertible sofa + 1 full bathroom + elevator

Le St. Jacques is an amazing, duplex/loft style apartment, dated from the late 1700's, on the top floor, and located at the heart of Paris' most revered neighborhoods, the Latin Quarter & St Germain.

You'll be steps away from the Pantheon (literally around the corner), the Jardin du Luxembourg, the Seine, Notre Dame, Place St. Michel & Blvd St. Michel, Place St. Germain, the always lively Rue Mouffetard, La Sorbonne, etc., etc. Shops, restaurants, cafés and amazing bakeries are plentiful. Metro and buses are easily accessible, as is transportation to and from both Airports.

This apartment is located in an historic, regal building, which is well maintained, and secured with entry code and secondary glassed doors.

There's an elevator to take you to the US 6th floor (French 5th), and then you'll ascend one more flight to the top, and last floor, where you'll find your truly Lofty lodgings.

Le St. Jacques was recently renovated, but with loving care, to maintain the apartment's original Parisian charm, and those spectacular exposed, oak beams!

The living room is complete with parquet floors, fire place, Queen sized convertible bed and 2 windows, that will allow you to admire the Eiffel Tower, the Golden Invalides' Dome, and Paris' amazing roof tops day and night.

The kitchen is modern and fully quipped, with a wide counter and bar, with stools, for your morning Café & Croissant, and a dining table for candle-lit meals.

You'll then ascend the stair case to the spacious bedroom, which is on the US 8th (French 7th) and final floor of the building, and you'll be amazed by the 10 foot high, cathedral style, vaulted ceiling, with massive oak beams, rare in Paris. The bedroom has a Queen sized bed and a large sitting area. There are also 3 more windows, this time with views of the Pantheon.

Above the bedroom, there is a mezzanine floor, which contains a single mattress, and a bedside table and lamp.

Access is by way of a ladder attached to the wall (suitable only for children to sleep there)

The bathroom is modern, but still has those unforgettable exposed, oak beams. There's a double sink, a bathtub/shower, with rain style shower head, and a clothes washer that drys as well.

You'll feel like you're au 7ème Ciel (High above the Roof Tops, and sitting on Clouds) in this Parisian gem. All of Paris will literally be at your feet!

Magical place to immerse yourself in Paris

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our recent trip to Paris and stay at Le St Jacques was fantastic. From the initial communications and ease/clarity of check in to the clean, large, modern, comfortable apartment, it was just perfect. Walking distance from RER stop, so getting here from airport was a breeze. The location in the Latin Quarter was ideal for walking to sites or accessing the metro for others. Good local eateries and having a lift up to the 5th floor was great. And the washer/dryer worked perfectly - just follow the instructions provided. Then there are the views. They are even more breathtaking than the photos. My favorite was sitting upstairs watching the Eiffel Tower light show after a day of adventure. This was our first trip to Paris, so I don't have anything to compare this to. However, my friends and coworkers who have been were amazed at this location. You will be too. You can stop looking at other properties.

Book this one.

A Parisian Dream Property

  • 5 of 5

For a week, in this wonderful apartment with views that cannot be described, my wife and I were able to live our Parisian dream.

Logistics were simple. The communication with the team was clear and quick. Arrival and departure could not have been more simple. Taxi stand is nearby. RER from CDG is easy walking distance. The location was perfect for us, with shopping and dining choices everywhere we turned. The apartment is within just minutes of so many of the city's most evocative and fascinating sites. We spent many hours just wandering, getting lost, finding new treasures around every corner. The WOS Bar across the street was great fun and a friendly place to wind up the night. The apartment is well equipped, well maintained, clean, and charming. All of those things matter, of course, and made our stay a good one, but what elevated the entire experience was the view. Photographs do not do justice to the view. The Eiffel Tower seems within touching distance. Notre Dame as it glowed at night. The rooftops and the city beyond. Honestly, it seems like a dream. We cannot recommend this apartment highly enough. If you've never been to Paris, this is it. If you've been, as we had, this is still so much more than expected. Just brilliant.

Wonderful place to stay in Paris

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed at this property on a trip to Paris to celebrate his 50th birthday. It's located near the Pantheon and the Sorbonne, so it's in a very lively neighborhood with a wine shop, bakery and cheese shop just across the street. (And a Green Bay Packers bar, which is a bit weird, but good if you're a fan, I suppose.)

The apartment is impeccably clean with a very comfortable bed and good linens and towels. We didn't use the kitchen, but everything one needs to cook is there. The views of the Eiffel tower are wonderful, of course, and we enjoyed that both day and night.

The owners were very responsive, and really accommodating and helpful when we had questions. Highly recommend!

Great location and views

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this flat in Paris. We were a family of four traveling with children ages 10 and 13. The flat was located in a great area with plenty of restaurants, cafés, markets and other food options. We were walking distance to many sites of interest. It was about a 10 minute walk to Notre Dame and a bout a 20 minute walk to the catacombs. We took a taxi to get to further out places like the Arc de Triomphe/Champs Élysés. We even walked to the Eiffel Tower for extra exercise! The flat has views of the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame from both the first floor windows and the upstairs bedroom window. The unit is on the sixth floor. The small elevator goes to the fifth floor and you walk the last flight of stairs to the flat. This was not a problem for our family as we are pretty fit, we chose to take the stairs instead of the elevator anyway. Once inside, the flat is equipped with a kitchen, living area and small table for dining. The bedroom and bathroom are up a flight of spiral stairs. There’s a small loft above the bedroom that you can get to buy climbing a ladder attached to the wall. The loft is open to the bedroom.The unit was clean and tastefully decorated and the kitchen was well equipped. We chose to eat all of our meals out so never cooked in the kitchen but kept fresh fruit and water in the refrigerator. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend to friends/family.
