The Particulier Montmartre is completely unique and seems to be able to stop time in its tracks. Hidden between Avenue Junot and Rue Lepic, the hotel is concealed by a big black metal gate. A former residence of the Hermès family, it boasts a 900m2 private garden where the tranquility will only be interrupted by the singing of birds or the noise of pétanque balls from the neighbouring pitch (also accessible to hotel guests).
The hotel is spread over five floors and includes five suites, each with a unique atmosphere and details like short poems hanging from the lamps and door handles. Whether it’s the baroque L’Arbre à Oreilles, the sensual La Vitrine or the contemporary Poèmes & Chapeaux, all of the suites feel very spacious and exude elegance rather than luxury.
Before heading back to the cocoon, guests should try the bar Le Très Particulier. Located downstairs, it is modelled on a speakeasy with black and white checkered tiles, red velvet armchairs and a tropical-themed glass roof. Here, the amusing bartender duo serve original cocktails and succulent à la carte tapas. A true slice of luxury in an address which – unsurprisingly – people keep close to their chests.
