A restored, 2-storey flat, with 59 m² of living space, on the top floor of a 17th century building
very near to Place-du-Panthéon in Paris’ 5th arrondissement
Paris, PARIS paris 75005 FR


Rue-Valette runs from Place-du-Panthéon alongside Sainte-Geneviève library. It is steeped in outstanding heritage in the form of 17th and 18th century facades. Surrounded by Saint-Etienne-du-Mont church, with its flamboyant gothic style, and the famous Louis-le-Grand and Henri-IV Lycées, Place-du-Panthéon contributes to the historic character of the area. Whilst Rue-Soufflot leads towards the wild pathways and the flower-filled parterres of Luxembourg Gardens, Boulevard-Saint-Michel abounds in shops. Just a stone’s throw away is the famous market in Place-Maubert, one of the oldest in Paris. Illustrious and convivial café terraces, like that of Le-Rostand and those in Rue-Mouffetard, flourish. A little further away, Luxembourg, Maubert-Mutualité and Cardinal-Lemoine underground stations as well as several bus stops make this district a very real crossroads for the French capital.


The dressed stone building, constructed in the early 17th century, still exudes an air of its era. A carriage entrance with its thick moulded panels, provides access to a passageway leading to a wooded courtyard, paved with sandstone. There stands “Tour Calvin”, a vestige of the Collège-de-Fortet, part of a university since the 14th century. Jean Calvin, “master of arts” was a student there. This two-storey flat, on the fourth and top floor, can be reached via a comfortable wooden stairway, with terracotta tile steps.
Spanning a surface area of 33.40 m² (59 m² of living space) and spanning south-east and west, this restored flat opens into a 22 m² living room, with exposed ceiling beams, illuminated via a window providing an unobstructed view of Sainte-Geneviève library. Next a kitchen, followed by a toilet. A flight of steps goes to the upper level where a bedroom, with a ground surface area of 29 m², and its bathroom are illuminated via insulated skylights. The rooms are laid with sprung parquet flooring under a roofing framework featuring heavy period beams.

Our opinion

Built during the Age of Light, the building and its picturesque courtyard stand in a privileged location in this emblematic district on Paris’ Left Bank. At the foot of the Panthéon, this crossroads in the lives of students abounds in renowned universities such as that of École-Normale, Lycée-Henri-IV and the Sorbonne as well as those café terraces, whose pictures tour the world. From Zola to Apollinaire and from Sartre to Hugo, the history of the City of Lights was written in these surroundings, home to this delightful, meticulously restored flat. An ideal place to live that is quiet and bright, whilst shrouded in a touch of eternity.
