Gilded grandeur Classical paintings in carved frames, leather-bound tomes, upholstered antique furniture – as you step into Rue du Faubourg Montmartre you’ll discover a family history spanning a century. A regal air pervades each elegant space – in the formal dining room traditional mahogany chairs sit abreast of the dining table, overlooked by ancestral portraits. An antique desk in the master bedroom provides a peaceful place to pause, while the heady scent of orange blossom on the roof terrace is the perfect complement to an al fresco breakfast. Art and history The fourth generation of their family to call this apartment home, your hosts are both accomplished art historians – she at the Louvre, and he at the Sorbonne. The classics An ancient typewriter and old-fashioned car model hark to bygone times, while the modern kitchen and gleaming white bathroom are cool and contemporary. Best of all, there are full-height windows which, complemented by this fifth-floor vantage, ensure plenty of natural light with which to take it all in. Nestled in the heart of Opéra, there’s plenty to see outside, too. The street below bustles with restaurants, bistros and bars, while Rue des Martyrs – with its lively weekend market – is mere minutes away.
