Tucked into a private garden on the slope of the Montagne St-Genviève, this hotel makes you feel as if you have just walked out of Paris and into the countryside. A path leads to a flower-bedecked interior courtyard, where birds chirp in the trees; the reception area adjoins an inviting breakfast room. The spotless rooms are filled with country-style furniture; crocheted bedspreads and framed etchings of flowers complete the look. The calm is such that the hotel has nixed TVs. What’s more, this unique ambience comes at a reasonable price. Families will appreciate the six large suites that can sleep four.
