We offer our special apartment in Paris to lovers of Paris. Located on rue St Jacques in the heart of the Latin Quarter, this romantic self-catering apartment is on the 3rd and 4th floor of a building overlooking the St Severin church. You will find it hard to find such a central apartment in Paris. It is amazing to have an apartment so centrally located in Paris, being only a minute’s walk from Notre Dame and the Ile de la Cité, and about the same distance from Blvd St Germain and Blvd St Michel in the heart of the Latin Quarter. This is a perfect place for a couple, but also ideal for a couple with one or two children (up to 4 pers) to experience Paris. This apartment has had people living in it for over 400 years, so feel free to contact us to see if you can share with us part of this history. If you find that our apartment isn’t just what you were after please contact us.
The bedroom is on the third floor off the entrance hall. The bedroom is not small and has good cupboard spaces. The bed is 1.65m wide and is a top of the range bed with independent zones. There are double windows which open from the bedroom, and open on to the space over the courtyard below, which allows those to have lovely fresh air in the bedroom. This bedroom is very quiet and you could almost feel as though you were sleeping in the countryside, whereas you are in the centre of the bustling city of Paris. Off the bedroom opens to the ensuite bathroom. The WC is located off the entrance hallway just outside the bedroom door. Once you are in the entrance hallway you go up stairs to the main living area on the 4th floor. In the lounge is a high quality Italian made comfortable fold out settee with a double bed. There is an armoire for storing clothes for those sleeping here. There is also a single sofa-bed, which has a roll-out single sofa bed stored underneath....moreless
The bathroom is quite new and very contemporary. Actually the bathroom consists of a basin, and a bath all fitted in to the same 'stone' bench top - you step down to the basin and up to the bath! There is a very good new separate shower which consists of an over-head large shower, and a hand-held shower. This shower is a glass enclosure with a glass concertinaed door. The bathroom is well lit with halogen lighting and the bathroom wall is well mirrored. There is a hair dryer, and heated towel rail. The WC is independent from the bathroom and is located in the entrance hall....moreless
This apartment is located on the third and fourth floors of this apartment building. There is no lift to the apartment but the stairs are very easy and are not steep or restrictive. It is a very secure building with digicode access on the street door as well as the internal entrance door.
The apartment makes a perfect home for a couple, however it easily accommodates another person or couple. The extra couple or single person is comfortably catered for in the lounge (on either the double fold-out or the single sofa bed), and with the lounge and bedrooms being on different levels and with a separate WC, both sleeping areas are very separate and independent from each other.
In the winter central heating is provided, which is charged for separately.
A large selection of English language books....moreless

This apartment is located only about 100m from the Seine River and Blvd St Germain respectively and several minutes walking takes you to the front of the Cathedral of Notre Dame. Within a few minutes walk you can access two of the best metros and RER stations available, and there are some wonderful bus route from near the apartment. You are also minutes walk as well from the Cluny Museum, Ste Chapelle, the Pantheon, and the Sorbonne University. You are in the heart of the Latin Quarter. Within five to ten minutes walk away you can get to the Louvre, Musee d'Orsay, the Cluny Medieval Museum, Pantheon, Hotel de Ville, the Luxembourg Gardens. Within minutes of the apartment you will arrive at the Place Maubert market on Blvd St Germain, and there are restaurants galore in the neighbourhood. You couldn't be located in a more central location - because of your proximity to all major sights you hardly have a necessity to take public transport while here!
Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: I have been involved in French tourism since 1993 organising tours and renting villas and apartments to clients. In 2007 my accountant said to me that my life would not be complete until I owned a property in France! What a rare accountant! So my wife and I fell in love with this property in Paris the second we saw it. The rest is history!
Why the Owner Chose Paris Arrondissement 5: We had always wanted to own a property in France, and we looked far and wide for the suitable place. We looked particularly through Provence, but every place we saw we never really fell in love with. I wanted a place that I would want to have a framed photo of in my home in NZ - one that friends would look at enviously. After a very short search in Paris we stumbled on this apartment. I asked a friend in Paris to see the apartment straight away and he advised me that 'it was a little jewel' (un petit bijou). I travelled immediately to Paris to see it, and immediately on seeing it I hugged the real estate agent - this was the place. We are privileged to be able to own such a special piece of Paris.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment: In buying a property I wanted a few features. I wanted to be on the third floor, far enough away from the street below, and I wanted to have a lovely view. On walking into the lounge you are transfixed by the glorious view of the St Severin Church and garden - they are my neighbours! As a bonus the apartment faces west so gets the afternoon sun - I've even had people sun-bathing in the window!! As a bonus we are as centrally located as you could possibly be - the Seine River is 150 metres away and Notre Dame Cathedral is a minute's walk away. Because of this proximity everything in central Paris is so close, with barely any need to take the metro. Despite the proximity to the busy Notre Dame area, the area behind Rue St Jacques is absolutely local Latin quarter, with the local hub being based around Place Maubert with their exciting array of magnificent food shops and market.
