Half as old as time
This winding Roman road is one of Paris’ oldest residents – and there’s something imperishable about this home, too. Beyond a charmingly antiquated façade, hours may drift into days as you settle into the snug, characterful sitting room. Weathered beams run widely overhead, while an old church confessional whispers its tales of ages past. But the tone is far from sepia in the TV snug, all pop art and squishy red chairs – and the bedrooms, too, are as brightly inviting as tradition could dictate.
Your hosts have lived at Rue Mouffetard II for over a quarter of a century, raising their three now-grown children here. Your hostess is a children’s doctor and your host’s a commercial councillor who has lived his whole life in the 5th arrondissement. The confessional was inherited from his grandmother, while the Moroccan jar dates to their honeymoon.
The dusky beams lend a timeless touch to the sitting room’s walls of white, while the sofa and armchairs are slouchy in grey. Take in the slant of the casement windows, and the sharp lines of the low coffee table, or let decades of delicious fare be your inspiration in the gentle yellow kitchen.
There are book-stocked shelves to help you pass time, and when you’re ready to fold the page you’ve a choice between the eye-catching single bedroom, the Marilyn Monroe-hung double, or the ageless elegance of the peach-hued master.
Since the onefinestay photoshoot, the third bedroom has been updated with a double bed instead of a single bed.
There is no wardrobe in the master bedroom so we will provide a hanging rail for storage.
There is no wardrobe in the double bedrooms but there is hanging space in the hall closet just outside the rooms.
This home doesn't have air-conditioning, so ask us if you'd like to have fans for your stay.
A youth hostel is located across the street and while it contributes to the joyful atmosphere of Rue Mouffetard, it can sometimes be noisy in the evenings.
