There’s no shortage of admiration-worthy places in Paris – Tour Montparnasse and the Sacré Coeur to name but a few. Majestically located in between the Eiffel tower and Les Invalides, the Narcisse Blanc Hotel-Spa watches the city through its windows, but remains far from the hustle and bustle of the city, in absolute calm.
Le Narcisse Blanc is modelled after Cléo de Mérode, the photo icon of the 20th century, a dancer and muse (immortalised by Nadar, Degas or even Proust) who led a mysterious life. Hints can be found in the name, the portraits, decorating the walls of the hotel. The room also hide clues to this woman's mysterious legacy.
Never flashy, always discreet and luxurious, the rooms play upon delicate, light, cream-coloured tones. Art Deco, Art Nouveau and modern furniture come together in perfect harmony with ravishing fabrics like velour, tweed or silk.
To prolong the peace, there’s a spa complete with a pool, Jacuzzi and elegant relaxation beds, plus a sauna, hammam and massage room. Other added extras include terraced gardens and rooms for hire. The attentive and welcoming concierge is discreet but always on hand to help. Protected from the world outside, the Narcisse Blanc is a veritable cocoon.
