Travel to Paris


La Maison Favart, Paris

30 August 2016

Words / Images: Geoff Brokate

La Maison Favart is a spacious boutique hotel that pays homage to the romance of 18th century couple, and Opéra-Comique founders, Charles Simon Favart and Marie-Justine Favart. The hotel has a classically Parisian style that recalls a time when the rooms would have been occupied by travelling acrobats, Baroque musicians and neoclassical painters. Now, of course, that style meets the contemporary necessities of a flat screen TV, Nespresso machine and free Wi-Fi.

The idea is to create the impression that you’re guests of the Favarts. The rooms are decorated to represent stages of Marie-Justine’s career, and you’ll find antiques and souvenirs collected from a lifetime of travels. Ultimately, though, it’s the excellent location – you’re a five-minute walk from the Folies Bergère – attentive staff and good value for money here that impress most. The mini spa is simply a fantastic bonus.
