Le Saint Jacques : Breathtaking Paris Vista from Your Lofty Apartment

Bedrooms 1
Space 600 sq ft
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 4 nights


About the property

1 queen bed + 1 convertible sofa + 1 bathroom/wc + elevator + wifi

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.

Le Saint Jacques property exceeded our expectations. And WOW, what a view!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Le Saint Jacques property definitely exceeded our expectations. All communications before and during our stay were handled both timely and professionally. Any questions that came up were promptly answered and resolved. Instructions for checking into the apartment were adequate and well communicated. The apartment was well kept, clean, and spacious enough for 4 adults. Everything was in working order. The location of the apartment was excellent as well. It was located close to everything we needed during our stay. There were many restaurants, shops, bakeries, and public transportation stops all within a short walking distance. Most importantly, the view of the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, and the Pantheon just can’t be beat.

Good location and terrific views

  • 4 of 5

It was a pleasant experience staying at Le Saint Jacques. The check in and check out was very easy, efficient and communication was great. The apartment was clean and nicely decorated. The views over the roof tops and of the Eiffel Tower are quite nice. The one thing I would mention is that there is a fairly narrow spiral staircase in the apartment to get from the living room/kitchen area up to the bedroom/bathroom area, and one needs to be okay with climbing up and down frequently, since there is no bathroom on the 1st floor of the apartment. The apartment is located in a good neighborhood, and is almost next to the Pantheon and the Paris-Sorbonne University. It does have a bit of a University neighborhood feel, and there many brasseries, cafes, and boulangeries close by.

Spacious for Paris

  • 4 of 5

Clean, spacious and overall a great place to stay for a few days. Be aware there is no A/C so during warm months it may get too hot. The spiral staircase is a little precarious, I think it could have been called out more in the advertised property. The check in and out process was perfect, could not have been better explained. The location is fabulous, close to Luxembourg Gardens and right around the corner from the Pantheon. Restaurants abound, you will want for nothing in this location.

Owner's Response: Thank you again for staying with us! It was a pleasure having you as our guests. The apartment is kept comfortable with its thick stone walls, and because our building is higher than any other -- hence those amazing views! When you open any of the 6 windows, the stream of air is constant, and we have fans too. The spiral staircase is prominently featured in our listing, it's one of the many unique architectural delights. We even show a picture of it. Great advice though, thank you. We will warn mature, retired couples, that they still need to be active retirees to enjoy our beautiful duplex. Kind Regards

So many little touches to make our stay in Paris more comfortable. Great communication before our trip so that everything went smoothly once we arrived. Excellent location. Walkable neighborhood, and close to Metro and RER to get you to other areas. The bus just a block away goes right to the Louvre. Easy walk to Notre Dome. Many bakeries, restaurants just outside the door of the apartment building. And even though you are in the heart of the city it is quiet in the flat. Very relaxing home base after a full day of sight seeing.
