La maison FAVART – A mythical 4-starred hotel in Paris
I just spend a night at the fabulous 4-starred hotel: La Maison FAVART. A truely fascinating and magical place. I’ll tell you why…
Besides being one of the first hotels in Paris, la Maison FAVART is placed right in front of the beautiful comic opera…
I spend one night there and was first and foremost enchanted by the hotel’s interior decoration. It amazed me from the moment I stepped in the door!
The story about la Maison FAVART
But who are Monsieur and Madame FAVART you might ask?
They were the famous couple that established the renown of the beautiful Comic Opera in Paris.
Back in 1745 Charles-Simon FAVART was the director of the Comic Opera. He fall in love with the young and seductive actress and opera singer Justine DURONCERAY. They got married the very same year and so began the incredible story of the most famous couple in the history of Parisian theatre: Monsieur and Madame FAVART…
He wrote the plays and she acted in them. It was a real love story.
Today, their house has been turned into a fabulous 4-starred hotel. The perfect place for a weekend stay where you can combine relaxation with Parisien culture.
I stayed in the Charles & Justine Deluxe bedroom number 41 one of La Maison Favart’s front rooms (pointing to the rue de Marivaux) with a stunning view to the Comic Opera…
And as the night fell on, the Comic Opera was enlightened and tranformed into a magical spot (probably one of the most beautiful sites in Paris).
Downstairs I found the spa! An unique place..Absolutely perfect for relaxation…
There was even a fitness room.
The concierge had some amazing ideas for places to eat..and what actually surprised me was the area, with narrow cobbled streets filled with elegant restaurants, cinémas and fancy stores. Everything you could need within 10 minutes walk.
I felt like being a princess in a magical house where everything is taken care of.
Next morning the breakfast was served at this beautiful place…
