There are vacations and then there are vacations; experiences that take you so far from your daily life that you are changed, and for a time show you a whole new way of living. The ultra luxury apartment, Vosges Royal, is a looking glass experience, once through your perceptions are forever altered. Home to members of the royal court in the 1600’s, the building and surrounding Place de Vosges are steeped in rich French history. The three bedroom, three bath home was once residence to Marie Touchet, the mistress of Charles IX. The spirit of the aesthetic lady lives in the gorgeous detailing and fine furnishings of this most elegant retreat, recently renovated by the famous French designer, Jacques Grange.
A large entry hall gives way to the first of two grand salons with herringbone parquet floors, and furniture appointed in silk brocade and velvet. Through it you will find the gorgeous kitchen, suited for a chef, with La Cornue stove and a wine cellar fridge. A slim library welcomes you into the second salon overlooking the famous square. An adjacent master suite with king bed swathed in silk taffeta, a dressing room and ensuite bath – it’s easy to feel courtly in these surroundings. Upstairs in your sumptuous getaway you will find two additional bedrooms, one with twin beds upholstered in silk stripe; in the other a queen. The first has a shower and WC, the other a bath and WC. Both rooms accommodate guests in royal style.
Other amenities include a Sonos music box system that allows remote wireless access to all your digital music. TV, air-conditioned bedrooms and a lift to reach the apartment only serve to welcome this gorgeous slice of history into the modern world with conveniences and amenities that surpass any four star hotel.
