There’s seeing the sights, then there’s the view from Avenue de Suffren II. The Eiffel Tower greets you from beyond the window, or with curtains drawn this home is classic and cosy. Against a warm colour palette, your host’s collection of antiques is thoughtfully arranged – the sitting room is set with high-backed armchairs, a writing desk and a traditional dresser. But if the views tempt you down to ground level, you’ll find the banks of the Seine are within easy reach. Cross the water to the Trocadéro, follow the river to Saint-Germain, or take your host’s favourite route down the tree-lined path to the Île aux Cygnes.
Your host’s family are wide-spread: his son lives in the USA and his daughter has settled in Dubai. When he’s not travelling the globe to visit them, you’ll find him reading or beating his friends at bridge.
Rise and shine
With over 50 years of family history, this home has plenty of storied pieces – from the lacquered tea tray to the cut-glass decanters. The chest of drawers beneath the sitting room’s mirror dates back to the 18th century and was crafted with wood from a Cuban cashew tree. Beyond the living area, you’ll find the bright bathroom, the corner bath bordered with sky-blue tiles. The kitchen is simple, with a table for two positioned for gazing on the Eiffel Tower. Or the bedroom is similarly pared-back, with access to the balcony for a closer look.
Your host enjoys the occasional cigarette inside, so guests may detect a slight aroma.
Unfortunately there is no guest storage space in the master bedroom, but there is plenty in the hallway just outside.
This home is only suitable for adults.
