Synopsis

Paris Hotels by Susan Luraschi

Talk about spoilt for choice! Cosseted or contemporary, simple or decadently baroque; sensual, shimmering and feminine - partitions of pale organzas, crinkly taffetas, fabrics a la Marie Antoinette; the rectangle is out, undulation is in; carpet is out, parquet is in. Soft velvets are available in chocolate, apricot and prune, bedheads in burnished crocodile (fake), interior patios and private terraces in old and 'new' neighbourhoods: the Marais, the Bastille, the Canal Saint Martin and all the way up to Montmartre. This work features bars with warm fires and deep sofas, flea market finds, a grand piano in the lobby and a Parisien beauty who sings at cocktail hour; saunas and hammams, 18th-century staircases, Empire antiquities, home-made jams and croissants, country-house style; where to find a private chauffeur or a bicycle rental. Can't get to the Caribbean! Come to Paris Plage 21 July - 20 August. These Special Places are just that - special, for they have been selected for their fascination and character, their top quality in their category and also for the people who run them.

About the Author

Alastair has built a team of talented editors who are as committed as he is to the search for authenticity and personality in places to stay. They are also 'driving' the world's first carbon-neutral publishing company; the search for a reduced ecological footprint is a serious one. In 2005/2006, Alastair Sawday Publishing won an award from Business Commitment to the Environment, a Green Apple Award and The Queen's Award for Sustainable Development. Susan Herrick Luraschi also edits our 'French Hotels, Chateaux & Other Places' guide. She has lived in the centre of Paris for 10 years (and in France for about 30) and is passionate about her adoptive country, its buildings, people, food and wine.
