THE STORY: Looking for a haven of contemplation in the bustling Marais neighborhood? Head to Maison Proust, the third installment from the Maisons Particulières hotel group after their other establishments Maison Athénée and Maison Souquet, designed by the tireless interior designer Jacques Garcia. This intimate space houses around 20 bedrooms with similar elements but which never look quite the same, all of which boast a unique and cozy ambiance: old-fashioned tones, dim lighting, fin-de-siècle paintings… reminiscent of the fashionable salons of the Belle Époque era, where the carpeting, fabrics and art objects harmoniously reflect Marcel Proust’s personal universe. And because the house fully commits to an aesthetic, there’s a library in the rotunda, a stained walnut bar and an elegant winter garden… If you can’t find some lost time with all that, we don’t know what to tell you! Double rooms starting at €500 a night. 

TOILETRIES: Homemade almond milk and orange blossom shampoo, body wash and soap. 
BREAKFAST: €22 with hot drinks (espresso, cappuccinos, hot chocolate, teas, herbals teas, etc.)., freshly squeezed fruit juices, carefully sourced breads and viennoiseries, honey, butter, jams… And for an added fee, eggs cooked any way you like, and even a glass of Champagne! 
LITTLE LUXURY: An incredible spa named Salon d’Eau, which features a ten-meter pool surrounded by columns, a hammam and three treatment rooms, decorated by the best artisans with plenty of marble, zellige tiles and tadelakt… all inspired by the orientalism of Marcel’s aunt Léonie’s salons, where the writer spent his childhood holidays.
