A boutique hotel in Paris like Fauchon L’Hôtel is a gateway to art, culture and history like no other. Today, the wide boulevards lined with tall Haussmann residences seem iconic to us, but these are 19th century replacements. A number of these boulevards radiate out from the famous Arc de Triomphe. Head into Saint-Germain, south of the famous Notre Dame cathedral, and you’ll find narrow, pedestrianised streets. In the north of the city, Montmartre looks different again, having taken the care to start protecting its character in the 19th century.
Your boutique hotel will put you close to haute cuisine restaurants of contemporary Paris such as Carré des Feuillants between Jardin de Tuileries and the Palais Garnier opera house. Impressionism began in Paris in the 1870s. The work of these revolutionaries, once condemned, now finds pride of place at Musée d’Orsay. Paris also has many other smaller museums such as Musée de Montmartre and Musée de Cluny, home of the famous Lady and the Unicorn tapestries. Paris is also home to the equally revolutionary Chanel. Once you’ve selected your haute couture, you can go for a stroll along the Seine, as so many Parisians do.
