It’s men’s fashion week in Paris and who could be surprised that the city of style knows how to accommodate a well-heeled crowd. With a plethora of five-star hotels and chic B&B’s, there is no shortage of grandiose places to stay. Those who are imbued by the lights of the Champs Elysees, the Michelin dining, and the sweet flow of the Seine may look at investing in an historic piece of real estate. We have selected five fine and dandy homes for living the joie de vivre…
In the glitzy 16th androssiment surrounded by high art museums, the Fondation Louis Vuitton and beautiful Bois de Boulogne, 2 spectacular apartments have joined forces to create an 8-bed space that is nothing short of a French fairytale. Soaring 5-meter ceilings, 4 master suites with dressing rooms, maid’s quarters, and a professional kitchen sets the scene for a taste of the good life. Elegant Louis XIV style furnishings adorn cavernous rooms, dressed to impress with glittering chandeliers, heavy drapes, and gilded mirrors. Some rooms have a cozier more modern feel – and the bathroom is a vision in marble.
