Tucked into a private garden on the slope of the Montagne St-Geneviève, this lovely hotel gives you the impression you have just walked out of Paris and into the countryside. A path leads to a flower-bedecked interior courtyard, where birds chirp in the trees; the reception area adjoins an inviting breakfast room with potted plants and an upright piano. The spotless rooms are filled with country-style furniture and papered in old-fashioned prints; quilted bedspreads and framed etchings complete the look. Views from most windows are of either the garden or surrounding trees. The calm is such that the hotel has nixed TVs. What’s more, this unique ambience comes at a reasonable price. Rooms in the “Garden Building” are more modern, with newer bathrooms; families will appreciate the six suites that each sleep four.
