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 single mezzanine bed + 1 full bathroom

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.

Fun apartment, great views

  • 5 of 5

I stayed Nov 2017 with my 8 year old daughter. It was a fun place for us with the views of Eiffel Tower (5 km away), fun stairs and ladder up to the Mezzanine where she slept. I might not chose to stay with a toddler though or younger child as you'd have to keep a close eye them with the stairs. The queen bed was comfortable. We didn't use the pull-out. The apartment/kitchen had everything we needed including power converters, Paris travel books and maps to borrow, and even a light weight pull cart on wheels to use for the grocery store or shopping. The area was good and in walking distance to many of the sites, food, and shopping. The apartment being so high up was quiet. The old building is charming and so is the cozy elevator. Communication was great and any questions I had were promptly answered. I would recommend staying here!

Great space, great location, and amazing views

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying and would stay again. Great bar, grocery stores, bakeries, restaurants, and sites all minutes from here. Views of Effiel Tower in better in person. Easy access, check was smooth with great communication on how to check in and out.

Kitchen has all you need to prepare meals.

Depending on when you go, no air conditioning. So if hot, will be hot inside. But able to open windows and enjoy views and breeze during our stay.

Fantastic views of Paris!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our family stay in Paris. Still can not get over the views. This is a two floor apartment with one bathroom on the top floor. To get up there you walk up a very narrow winding staircase. The extra effort is worth it because of the spectacular views it offers.

It was about a 15 minute walk to the metro, but the location was safe with markets, bars, and restaurants all close by. Also great views of the Pantheon if you peek out the top window.

Great stay in Paris!

My wife and I celebrated our 10-year anniversary in Paris and was fortunate to find this great apartment. Excellent location with good proximity to Cluny and Luxembourg gardens metro. And to be honest, that region is a great place to stay. It's the perfect size for a couple or someone traveling alone. Would be really tight for a bigger family. Fantastic views from the windows (Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, Hotel des Invalides, etc). Washing machine, small had everything we needed for our trip. Most impressive was Krystyna who communicated with me on a number of issues making sure that there were no questions unanswered heading into our arrival. She was fantastic. I knew exactly what to expect. We rented a SIM card from the owner for the week which could not have been better. Just put it in our iPhone and saved money by not changing over to an international plan on our domestic carrier. Additionally, they keep tourist books in the apartment (e.g Rick Steves, etc), outlet convertors for those traveling from abroad, Wifi included....nothing but good things to say about this place and the owners. Only possible cons....twisty, narrow staircase going to bedroom. Could be problematic for some. Small-ish ceiling in the master bath that only comes into play when you're in the shower. Obviously, those are small things and the only negative things I could think of.

If you're spending some time in Paris, and this apartment is available, I don't suspect you'll be disappointed. Bon voyage!

Spectacular views, lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

This was my fifth trip to Paris, third traveling solo. I love this apartment. The two levels made for a unique experience and provided different perspectives of even the same views. It was great fun to have morning coffee in the upstairs window alcove watching the sunrise reflect off the Eiffel Tower, and have wine in the evening when the Eiffel Tower lights turn on. And then there's looking at that beautiful structure from the comfort of bed. Even though I've spent considerable time walking through Paris, I enjoyed selecting sites to revisit based on views out the bedroom windows of interesting roofs. Name a site in Paris and you can probably see it from those windows. The location of the apartment can't be beat. Close to train/metro stations, Luxembourg Garden, Rue Muffetard shops for all the ingredients for great meals to cook in the well appointed kitchen, and eat while looking at the Eiffel Tower. Aaron met me, explained how everything worked and told me of nearby options to explore. It's fun, exciting, well located, comfortable, clean. Just a wonderful apartment to share with friends or spend experiencing Paris alone. I will return again and again.
