Overview & Features

Scale the vast hand carved limestone staircase and push open the double doors and you are invited into a very different, highly intimate Paris, providing the luxury of being “in residence” in a famously secret city. This exquisite luxury Paris apartment under the Places des Vosges arcade, is without peer. This residence has been carefully appointed with original design of Jacques Grange. Long established as France’s leading private stylist and designer, Grange saw the space as a jewel and dressed it accordingly in subtly rich textures, a muted sensual palette and extraordinary antiques, textiles, books and one-of-a-kind bibelot.

The rich history of the Place des Vosges goes back to 1604 when King Henry IV built a Royal Pavilion at the southern end of the square. This luxury Paris apartment is the original home of Marie Touchet, sole mistress and grand courtesan to Charles the IV and the mother of his only living heir, a daughter Catherine Henriette. A noble retreat for the most refined tastes, this is a grand private residence. Conceived for pleasure, exquisite in detail, practical in layout, with just the right balance of thoughtful amenities the property strikes the perfect balance between historic grandeur and sumptuous repose. This Paris rental gives you the keys to the most exclusive square in the city of light.
