Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Faubourg Saint-Germain - Jacques

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 6

Located on Paris’s prestigious Left Bank, the spacious apartment is nestled between the Ecole Militaire and Les Invalides. It is on a quiet street but just minutes away by foot from the world-famous Eiffel Tower, Champ de Mars, U.N.E.S.C.O., Musee Rodin, Musee Branly, Musee d’Orsay, Grand Palais, Petit Palais, Trocadero, and the rue Cler, one of the best street markets in Paris. Paris’s 7th arrondissement is true chic aristocracy.

Your apartment is on the second floor of a classic building with secure entry and elevator. There are 5 French windows across the front of the apartment letting in the gorgeous light from the wrap-around balcony. Around the corner you can catch a glimpse of the Eiffel Tower. The apartment windows are double-glazed for your comfort.

The 105 square meter (1,130 square feet) apartment is tastefully furnished with a mix of 1940’s antiques and contemporary. The artwork was especially selected to give you the true feeling of being in Paris, the City of Light.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This apartment is about as central as you could want in Paris. It is minutes from Invalides and the Rodin Museum. If you like to walk, you are in walking distance of the Eiffel Tower (about 1 mile), D’Orsay Museum (also approximately 1 mile) and the Louvre (approximately 1 ½ miles). Since you are in Paris, part of your trip should include walking through the city to enjoy its beautiful architecture so the walks are not an issue! On the ground floor of the building is a little shop where we purchased fruit and freshly squeezed orange juice every morning. Around the corner is a patisserie where we would pick up our morning pastries. There are numerous restaurants in the vicinity and Paris’ great metro has stations nearby. Download a Paris metro map and use it hand in hand with the metro to make your stay even easier. Because the apartment is located about 2 blocks from the metro it was easy to venture farther out, such as Notre Dame, the Montmarte area and the Arc de Triomphe. The central location is key. It allowed us to be very flexible with what we wanted to see and when, knowing that we would always be near the Rodin and the Army Museum / Invalides. Our host was great, supplying us with all of the necessities for our 5 night stay. He met us at the apartment when we arrived and gave us the lay of the land and also treated us to a bottle of wine (French, of course) and some beer. This is a perfect apartment for 2 couples. 2 bedrooms with Queen beds and 2 full baths, though one of the baths is broken up into 2 rooms – no big deal. We used the 3rd bedroom to hold all of our luggage and thus it kept our bedrooms and the living room – dining room clear. And, though narrow, the balcony provided a view of the Eiffel Tower. We sifted through dozens of apartments before ending up with this location and the 4 of us could not have been happier with our decision.

Beautiful apartment, perfect for two couples, walking distance to Eiffel Tower.

  • 5 of 5

Loved our apartment in Paris, David was there to greet us when we arrived and introduced us to the apartment. The apartment was clean and well equipped with all the amenities we needed. Very nice neighborhood, quiet and secure. The location was perfect, walking distance to the Eiffel Tower, Les Invalides, Musee Rodin and walks along the Seine. Lovely cafes close by, a wonderful bakery around the corner and a fruit and vegetable stand next door.

Thank you David, we would love to come back again, there is so much to see in Paris and your apartment is lovely! Catherine

Fabulous apartment- convenient, spacious, peaceful and ideal location

  • 5 of 5

We were four adults traveling from California for a week in Paris and we were delighted with this spacious and spotless apartment. The 7th district is the most perfect location; less crowded, elegant and with a neighborhood feel that was perfect for us. We had a green grocer right next door, a patisserie underneath, a convenience grocery store across the street, etc. We loved the 4 restaurants in our 'hood' and frequented them when we were tired and worn out from a 12 hour tourist day. The kitchen was well equipped for our breakfasts and wine and cheese tastings before dinner. Bathrooms were modern, bedrooms were average size and lots of storage within. We loved the dining room for our coffee and breakfasts while we watched the neighborhood come awake each morning. Our train was delayed over 2 hours and it was a bit of a problem finding a taxi so we were very late arriving at the apartment and therefore we were DELIGHTED to find David inside the apartment waiting for us to arrive. We literally were standing on the street wondering 'what on earth will we do to contact David to open the apartment??". At that very moment, David opened the lobby door and helped us with our luggage! We had a marvelous time and loved this apartment and I could easily see myself living there for a month. We would have liked to have had more towels and pillows but that was a very small item and we did not bother David with this.

A True Home in the Luxurious 7th Arrondissement

  • 5 of 5

My sister-in-law and I took our daughters to Paris this summer for a two-week graduation celebration trip and had the great pleasure of staying in this apartment. This was my 7th rental experience in Paris and by far the best. The apartment is spacious and beautifully decorated and maintained; the bathrooms rival those in fine hotels and the kitchen appears to be very recently remodeled. All of the beds were very comfortable (we used the den as a bedroom) and there is a huge amount of storage space, so we were able to put away our suitcases and our clothing. The location can't be beat; a boulangerie/patisserie is located just downstairs and the fabulous cafés, restaurants, and attractions of the 7th arrondissement are just minutes away. The convenient École Militaire metro stop is 5 minutes from the apartment; located on line 8, this stop connects with the major lines and makes traveling through Paris very easy.

I've had small disappointments with every Parisian apartment that I've previously rented; either the space was tight, or the location not so great, or the apartment not in great condition but this apartment truly has it all. After long hot days of walking throughout the city we loved coming home to our comfortable and spacious refuge, and I felt more at home in Paris than I ever had before. David, the apartment manager, was one of the biggest reasons that we had such a great experience; he met us promptly as we arrived from the airport, worked behind the scenes to make sure the apartment was in perfect condition when we checked in, and responded quickly to my texts when I had questions.

I cannot recommend this apartment enough; yes, it is a little pricier than other apartments you might find, but considering the space, the quality, and the location, I think this apartment is a very good value, indeed.

Live like a local

  • 5 of 5

Great location and very spacious. Near Boulangeries, Patisseries and restaurants. Great balcony for people watching. Near to 2 Metro stations. Everything you need in a nicely furnished upscale style. Many balcony doors open for a great breeze on a warm day. It made for a great vacation. We'd go back to this apartment in a heartbeat.

Lovely spacious apartment in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this apartment in Novemmber with 3 girlfriends on a long shopping weekend in November. The apartment is bright, airy and spacious, in an excellent location, close to Metro stations and walking distance from just about everywhere. The bar/restaurant opposite was a great place for a bite to eat when we arrived jet-lagged and to weary to venture far.

David was a marvellous host and had gone to a great deal of trouble to prepare a handbook for visitors, as well as toiletries, sparkling wine and an unexpected but very welcome basket of goodies, to keep us going.

I would recommend this apartment and would stay there again.

Perfect Accommodation!

  • 5 of 5

We sayed here in August with our four children (ages 16 to 22) and we all agreed that this apartment was the perfect place for us. The location was ideal as it was within walking distance to many places of interest including the Eifel Tower, and just around the corner there was a bakery for those morning croissants and a small grocery store to buy eggs and milk. We also felt very safe to walk around at night.

The photographs are very representative of the apartment and David was very hospitable when we arrived...he even provided us with oranges and a nice gift basket of coffee, biscuits and other treats. We would not hesitate to recommend this apartment to friends and family and we would definitely return.
