Why we like it
- A romantic boutique hotel built on the remains of a 13th century Abbey
- Located in the heart of the upmarket Saint-Germain-des-Prés, a stone's throw from the Seine
- Within walking distance of many of the city's main cultural attractions, such as the Louvre and Notre Dame
- 49 individually-designed rooms and suites
Borrow one of the hotel's bicycle and soak up the Parisian lifestyle as you cycle through the charming streets of St Germain and Le Marais.
A first-class service: finding a suitable cruise to fit my parameters; managing to extend the time during which the offer would remain open so as to give me more time to discuss the trip with my travelling companion; and finally making all the train and hotel bookings to make the whole holiday as trouble free as possible. I cannot speak too highly of the way in which everything been conducted.
