"The 6 Most Luxurious Paris Mansions that you can actually stay in"


The famous magazine Architectural Digest, from the Condé Nast group, recently published an article revealing a selection of luxury Parisian mansions in one of these latest reviews.

The American freelance writer and journalist, Amy Tara Koch, has notably participated in current writings for the New York Times, The Telegraph, The Wall Street Journal, Vogue USA...

An honor for the Hotel Alfred Sommier to have a mark in the AD thanks to his pen alongside La Réserve Paris or Relais Christine.


Notre passage 

"In 1860, sugar tycoon Alfred Sommier purchased and restored the 17th-century castle Vaux-le-Vicomte and built a double Haussmannian mansion inside of a stone-flagged courtyard just steps from Place de la Madeleine. In 2019, Richard de Warren, a descendant of the Sommier family, introduced the refurbished property as an alternative to soulless big-box hotels. Belle Époque flourishes abound throughout the 80 rooms and public spaces in the form of herringbone parquet floors, marble fireplaces, gilded moldings, and a grand staircase flanked with caryatides. These, plus the leafy courtyard for breakfast and cocktails, are manna to Francophiles who love a whiff of old-world haute société. "
