Hotel Particulier Montmartre
SECRETS COME IN ALL GUISES, but few are as sexy as the quirkily opulent Hotel Particulier Montmartre, tucked away down a cobbled passage in Montmartre near the Sacre-Coeur. This aristocratic art-house mansion is cloaked by a secret garden in the historic heart of Paris.
Only a discreet brass plaque marks out this hidden gem and guests arrive via the inviting garden, designed by Louis Bénech, magically appearing amongst the townhouses of Montmartre.
More surprises can be found inside the public salons, where pop-art pieces mix with Baroque-inspired antiques and classic Arne Jacobsen egg chairs. Relax in what feels like the living room of an eccentric well-to-do Parisian’s house as you sip a drink from the honesty bar.
At the heart of the hotel are the five huge suites, each one individually designed by Morgane Rousseau. Chill out in the whimsical jacuzzi-equipped Vegetal room, whose tree photo wallpaper makes you feel as if you’re waking up in a forest glen as the sunlight streams in through the windows.
Rooms are enormous by Parisian standards and feature quirky little touches such as hats for lampshades. Some rooms are saucier than others; Vitrine, designed by sculptor Philippe Mayaux, features suggestive blown-glass objects (say no more) and a steam room.
Whisper sexy secrets to your beau in the sumptuous Trees With Ears suite, which comes with Japanese wallpaper, an elegant living area adorned with antiques and a secret tannoy system so you can share sweet nothings.
Although you’ll find TVs and Wi-Fi here, Hotel Particulier’s charm lies in its quirkiness. There’s no restaurant, but you’re only a cobblestone’s throw away from all the bustle of Montmartre. A chef can be called in to prepare a private meal in the eclectic dining room, guarded by a life-sized angel statue.
