When luxury hotel industry shows interest in the world of camping, the results are truly remarkable…
The perfect restoration of the Particulier Villeroy Paris Hotel
Money was definitely not an object, when the former Villeroy mansion was turned into a lavish resort in the heart of the Golden Triangle ...
When they conceived their first hotel, international company The Collection, had very specific criteria in mind. “We wanted to offer a unique Parisian villa with amazing interiors, a sense of detail and the services of a personal butler,” explains Jacques Udino, CEO of the company. All of this, and much more, was brought to life at the Hotel Particulier Villeroy Paris, which opened in January on the 8th Arrondissement of Paris. With only eleven rooms, apartments and condos, the intimate hotel is located in a villa originally built in 1908 for Nicholas Lucien Villeroy, a family member who founded the refined porcelain company, Villeroy & Boch.
Recently characterized as a historic monument, this villa, with its gorgeous original decoration elements still visible, has preserved the delicate plaster ceiling decorations at Suite Lescot and gilded, intriguing cast iron gilders that edge the marble staircase leading you to the restaurant. Still, while the ambiance setting is definitely retro, the design and pieces of room furniture are contemporary, creating chic Parisian pied-a-terre. The velvet-lined armchairs and the sofas in gray, pale blue and beige colors that are the work of Promemoria, the Italian chandelier by Atelier Alain Ellouz, are accompanied by Apple TV sets and Vimes sound systems.
As Udino says, the details are also top notch. Guests sleep on $ 20,000 handmade mattresses, made by Vispring, UK, while enjoying a daily dose of caffeine using Nespresso Zenius leather-wrapped machines in the tones used in the rooms. In the bathrooms, L'Officine Universelle Buly offers them a custom made offer.
At Trente-Trois Restaurant, Michelin-starred chef Sebastian Sanju creates a true French feast in an intimate setting, while Bar Jean Goujon serves cocktails, Japanese whiskey and more, in an atmosphere featuring ceilings decorated with gold leaf. If we add to this a 24-hour butler service, luxury will definitely reach a whole new level.
