Rue Monsieur was built in 1793, and its lofty proportions and intricate mouldings have been enchanting its occupants ever since. Here you’ll find splendid furniture, textured wallpaper and luscious pigments, not to mention exquisite oils and shelves of literature. Nancy Mitford lived on this street, as did Cole Porter – and you’ll soon see why he wrote ‘I love Paris’. You’re close to the gorgeous shops of Sevres Babylones, to the designer delights of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, and exactly halfway between the Jardins du Luxembourg and Jardins des Tuileries – a loveable location indeed.
I get a kick out of you
Your hostess is French, while your host hails from California. He often says he fell in love with Paris along with his wife, and even now, with two adult children, they’re as romantic as ever. Keenly musical, she often spends her evenings playing the piano.
Easy to love
Much of the art and furniture in Rue Monsieur has been in your hostess’ family for generations, and there’s a particular decadence to the conker-brown glow of hand-polished wood against the rich, daffodil-yellow walls. There’s a spacious eat-in kitchen, a dining room with ornate chandeliers and gilt edges, and two panelled bathrooms that are subtly Art Deco. And while the study transforms into a neat single bedroom, it’s the master bedroom – papered in ruby claret, and hung with a spectacular seascape – that we think you’ll prefer in the still of the night.
Your host has a dog, whilst it won't be there during your stay, allergy sufferers should be made aware.
There is enough place in the study to set up a single airbed where one additional guest could sleep. Please let our reservations team know if you need this set up for your stay.
