SoPi (South Pigalle) is the new hotspot in Paris and tourists have duly taken note. With its designer boutiques, trendy restaurants and concept store bakeries, the streets just south of Pigalle are full of surprises. Far from the hustle and bustle of the famous Pigalle drag, those in search of the livelier side of Paris will delight in this address nestled away in a courtyard.
Although the colourful, cosy rooms fall under the 'classic' bracket, Villa Bohème has some beautiful touches. Starting with the ground floor: the Bo Studio, a 40m2 suite designed for a romantic stay, equipped with an Italian shower, jacuzzi, rose petals and an array of LED lights making a superb starry sky.
On the top floor the atmosphere is quite different, with a room designed in the style of a gypsy wagon – it isn't called Bohemia for nothing. Under the eaves, and with a view onto the roofs of Paris, this very colourful neo-hippy room, which easily sleeps four, is perfect for families and groups of friends. And of course, the odd pyjama party.
