With elegant lush interiors and an insta-worthy pastel colour palette, the freshly opened Cour des Vosges is the city’s new hotel sensation!
“As chic as it gets“ could be a fitting way to describe this freshly opened, chic hotel in Paris called Cour des Vosges. A secret retreat, an esoteric spot, and a hotel unlike any other, Cour des Vosges cultivates the French art de vivre and the elegance of Parisian mansions of a bygone era. The interior design is by Lecoadic-Scotto, they have created quite an unusual atmosphere: a discussion between eras where contemporary design meets period objects and references.
There are no big concept surprises or twists- just a hotel so pretty to look at and to live in that you can’t ask for anything else. Located in a hôtel particulier a.k.a. a nobleman’s mansion, the hotel overlooks the city’s oldest square, the famous Place des Vosges.
It was originally was planned by King Henri IV as a royal square and was inaugurated in 1612 to celebrate the engagement of Louis XIII and Anne of Austria. Its elegant arcades, the symmetrical pink brick houses with slate roofs and the Louis XIII gardens in the middle make for one of the most beautiful squares in Paris- and a stunning window view from the hotel’s rooms.
The Cour des Vosges interiors respect the french royal past, through the high ceilings, terra cotta floor tiles, redesigned four-poster beds and stone walls. At the top of the grand staircase, behind each door hides Renaissance grandeur, with listed painted ceilings and a unique décor in blue and pink pastel shades bathed in light and mystery. Secret doors and sliding walls structure the interstices of this understated and elegant well-being.
This impression of tranquility is continued by the confidential serenity of the Roman baths. Light refreshments are available at the Brach-La Pâtisserie tearoom and its terrace, inviting guests under the arcades to taste the creations of Yann Brys, Meilleur Ouvrier de France.
