Walls as crisp as a white coat, the neatest of chrome appliances and soothing original beams – Rue de Sèvres is just what the doctor ordered. A neutral palette is enlivened by pulses of scarlet, while outside on the terrace, green leaves tumble and the furniture is neon-bright. Once your step has regained its spring, head to Le Bon Marché for some retail therapy, or sate your stomach at La Grande Épicerie de Paris – who knew the city would prove such a balm?
Your host is a former surgeon. Now retired, he spends much of his time in Africa training new doctors. He took possession of his Paris home three years ago, and relishes its sense of peace.
The beamed ceiling whispers of the past, and the raw, exposed brickwork is just as captivating. But your host has brought this historic home into the present – there’s a selection of contemporary furniture and knots of vibrant colour, too. The sitting room’s sofa is topped with cushions in autumnal hues, and next door the master bedroom looks out onto the terrace. And with a well-stocked shelf of books, white-painted bricks and smooth wooden furnishings, it’s enough to make even the most jaded soul sing.
There is a sofabed in the sitting room where two additional guests can sleep. Please let our reservations team know if you need this set up for your stay. We will also set up a collapsible wardrobe for your stay.
Please be aware that the subway passes under the building and therefore vibrations and noise can be noticed in the home.
This home doesn't have air-conditioning, so ask us if you'd like to have fans for your stay.
There are internal stairs in the home.
