Expert review of Villa Madame

Ever so St-Germain: the discreet charm of the bourgeoisie.

This used to be a good-value budget secret, now it's rather less secret and a much heavier budget but it's got sophisticated urban charm down to a T. The Villa Madame was redecorated in 2009 by Michel Jouannet, who recently revamped Hotel Cipriani in Venice, and it combines discreet luxury and the intimate approach that suggests you're walking into someone's private residence – a table rather than reception counter, fresh flowers, and the owner's collection of Oriental ceramics around the living room.

Location: 

On a sidestreet named after "Madame" de Savoie, wife of future Louis XVIII, it is beautifully placed for sunning and people-watching in the Jardins du Luxembourg, Great shopping and the St-Germain café scene nearby.

Bedrooms: 

The 28 rooms and suites are classic yet contemporary with pared-back lines and luxurious fabrics, I particularly like the velvet balloon back chairs found in different colours all over the hotel. There are framed fashion sketches and watercolours on the wall, lovely Hermès products in the bathrooms. For a romantic treat, go for one of the mansarded top-floor rooms with its own private roof terrace.
