Villa d'Estrees

Author: Anothertravelguide.com0 COMMENTS

Villa d'Estrees

Villa d'Estrees can be found on Paris' left bank (Rive Gauche), just twenty or so meters from the Seine itself and tucked into a small street that heaves with historical suggestion. The hotel is housed in a 17th century building and has only ten rooms, and although each one is different, they all have been decorated with the striped walls, empire-style furniture and oriental carpets that embody the discreet elegance of the era of Napoleon III and Baron Haussmann. Unusually large for Paris hotel rooms, the accommodations at Villa d'Estrees are more reminiscent of the apartments that Left Bank intellectuals pass down from one generation to the next - but with modern-day comforts thrown in. While staying here, it takes no effort at all to imagine the times when Sartre and Camu haunted the local cafes, and in the nearby grande brasserie, you can still find one of the best seafood restaurants in Paris - La Coupole, the legendary place where Picasso was a regular, Matisse would drink beer, and Joyce - imbibe his daily whiskey. The hotel's lobby awakens memories of Old World vestibules - a lost part of Paris that Woody Allen has masterfully recorded for posterity in his gem of a film, "Midnight in Paris".
