On the sixth floor of a stately building, Avenue du Général Leclerc is ornately carved. The sitting room is set with herringbone floors and moulded walls, and a collection of antique chairs and a soft sofa are arranged around the hearth. Just beyond, the lacquered dining table sits beneath a grand chandelier, and there are leafy street views from the French windows. Alésia is a mellow spot, with daily markets at Rue Daguerre and plenty of nearby parks. The only public entrance to the Catacombs is moments from the doorstep, too.
Your hosts have lived in this home since the 1980s, and have filled it with 20s-inspired designs. Their favourite spot is out on the terrace, where they relish their view across Paris.
Just off the living area, you’ll find four bold and bright bedrooms. The characterful master bedroom has terracotta walls and a turquoise carpet, and there’s an extravagant chandelier and a decorative mirror atop the mantel. The pretty twin room is brushed with peach and pastel pink tones, and the bathrooms are equally bold. One is framed with burnt-orange walls, another is bordered with bright-red tiles, and the master ensuite has a pale-painted bathtub for dreamy evenings in.
There is a small double bed in the third bedroom, which comfortably sleeps one person or two people at a squeeze.
The third bedroom is not suitable for babies, children and toddlers, as the stairs leading to it are very narrow and steep.
