With an amazing view of the local square and the River Seine from the balcony and the sitting room, you can watch both people and boats pass by while enjoying your morning coffee from this exclusive spot on the Île-de-la-Cité. Inside, a fitting naval theme takes hold. The collection of ocean-themed artworks and yachting badges tell of your host’s former navy career, while original parquet floors, antique furniture and original features evoke the grandeur of a classic liner. Whether you settle on one of the sitting room’s elegant chairs with a tome, or head out for a meander along the boulevards, be sure to savour the river lights come evening.
One of your hosts is a retired naval officer, and has passed his love of the ocean onto his family – who are all keen sailors. They’ve long enjoyed their Parisian home with its unique seafaring accessories.
Boulevard du Palais is filled with old-world class. In the sitting room, the carved coffee table and dining table for four perch atop two richly patterned rugs. And each characterful bedroom has its own intriguing collection of furniture and artworks – from ornate wardrobes and bamboo side tables, to globes and seascapes. But it’s in the master suite where you’ll find the most intriguing nautical accents. An intricate model ship takes anchor beside the bathtub, and golden dolphin ornaments are poised against the yellow tiles.
