A extravagantly gorgeous hotel whose location and history are hard to beat. The converted 19th century mansion is set in the grounds of what used to be the world’s first hot-air balloon field, and design references to this buoyant past are everywhere. There are sweeping staircases, individually designed rooms and oceans of space in the private gardens, all seducing you to believing you’re not just 20 minutes from the Champs-Elysées.
