A 44 m², through flat on the 5th floor
in the Gobelins district of Paris’ 5th arrondissement
Paris, PARIS paris 75005 FR


Rue-de-la-Collégiale, in the 5th arrondissement of the French capital, owes its name to the old collegiate church of Saint-Marcel, no longer in existence. The Gobelins district, known by the name of Faubourg-Saint-Marceau up until the 15th century, boomed with the development of a dyeing industry by a certain Jean-Gobelin. Louis XIV had the Royal Factory of Furniture and Tapestries to the Crown installed there in 1663. Today, just a stone’s throw from Jardin-des-Plantes, from Rue Mouffetard made famous by Jean-Pierre-Jeunet in the film “Amelie from Montmartre” and from the Sorbonne, this district is one of the liveliest in Paris. This flat is less than 200 m from Les-Gobelins underground station and from a theatre, of the same name, a little further away. Universities, local shops and Austerlitz train station are also nearby.


This flat, in a dressed stone building dating from the late 19th century, spans a floor surface area of 44 m². In pristine condition, it almost touches the clouds. This 5th floor flat can be reached via a lift or via a stairway and the communal areas are immaculately kept. The entrance hall provides access, on one side, to a first bedroom and, on the other, to a corridor. The latter leads to a living room and to a second bedroom. The floors are covered with strip pattern parquet flooring. Further on, a small kitchen is perfectly functional, just like the bathroom with its shower. This particularly bright, through flat looks out via its numerous windows over two inner courtyards. Its new owners will, therefore, be able to take advantage of the morning and the evening light. They could also revamp the layout to suit their own personal tastes as the sizes of the rooms make them extremely flexible.

Our opinion

Behind its apparent simplicity, this delightful flat makes an ideal pied-à-terre. In a historic district in the midst of the French capital, its residents can follow in the steps of Balzac who, walking the narrow streets in the 19th century, described it as “an esplanade, dominating Paris, conquered by players of French bowls, old grey figures, full of good cheer, decent people that continue our ancestors”. With its narrow, paved streets, its market and its old buildings, now an integral part of French history books, this district still exudes the village atmosphere that appealed so much to writers.
