Discover a portrait in an art gallery under the arches, admire a beautiful object in an antique shop, linger at a table for lunch, read on the lawn in front of the fountain… It's always exhilarating to wander around Place des Vosges, identifiable by its red brick facades and its blue slate roofs.
This small architectural gem was built for King Henry IV. The royal privilege to stay here becomes reality with this house (one of 36 on the square) that has been transformed into a four-star hotel. As soon as you cross the threshold, a feeling of another time and another place steals over you. The ivy clinging to the interior facade gives the impression of a soothing cloak of leaves.
You are transported to the era of Anne, Queen of Austria and of France, who lived in another part of this square in the 17th century. The historical style is maintained but the comfortable rooms reflect contemporary modernity. The Carita group's aptly named Spa de la Reine (Queen's Spa) offers you the royal treatment.
