Paris, the city of light, has attracted visitors and fanned the creative flames of writers, painters, playwrights and films makers for centuries. The banks of the Seine, Sacré Coeur, Place Vendôme and Place de la Concorde are among the multitude of mythical sites immortalized in writing, on canvas and on screen.
Prestigious and legendary, Paris is also the birthplace of elegance and French tradition. Some streets in the city concentrate solely on the capital’s renowned sense of luxury and its art de vivre. This is the case of the rue Saint-Honoré, which owes its name to the former collegiate church once located in the cloister of the same name.
Not far from the Tuilieries Gardens, the Louvre, the Place Vendôme and the Place de la Concorde, it’s the ideal quarter for luxury shopping enthusiasts and art lovers. The Jeu de Paume gallery and the Orangerie museum are just a few steps away, and a pleasant stroll through the Tuileries will take you straight to the Louvre. In this very particular environment, which has naturally attracted a host of luxury boutiques, we find famous tea rooms such as Angelina and Ladurée, as well as illustrious hotels like the Meurice, the Plaza Athénée and the legendary Crillon.
The Burgundy, located a few steps from the Champs-Elysées, at the corner of rue Duphot and rue Saint-Honoré, is a luxurious, sober, elegant and warm hotel. Built at the end of the 19th century, it was totally renovated in 2010 at the request of its new owner and art lover, Guy de Durfort.
The tone is set as soon as you enter. The Carrare marble floor, braided with brass wire is the work of Guy de Rougemont, as is the magnificent white and gray marble statue entitled “L’Onde Femme”, which stands under the monumental dome of the hall.
At the Baudelaire Bar whose gold leaf Art Deco counter was made by Véronique Charpy, a fresco inspired by Baudelaire’s famous poem “Les Fleurs du Mal” was created by Marco del Re. Throughout the hotel, artists have contributed their canvasses, lithographs and black and white photographs.
The 59 spacious and filtered rooms and suites are in a refined and classical style. The painted panelled walls, deep carpets and sumptuous curtains surround comfortable armchairs, crystal lamps and contemporary desks with pure half-glass half-chrome lines. The entire room is enhanced by stunning colors including bronze, lime green, turquoise or raspberry and by the colorful lithography of Marco del Re. The luxury continues into the bathrooms which are a blend of black marble with stone and chrome, giving them a somewhat 1930s atmosphere.
After a hectic day of museum hopping and luxury shopping, the Burgundy is an ideal refuge for relaxation. The spa, the hammam and the magnificent swimming pool are all welcome spaces for recharging one’s batteries after a long day.
At the restaurant, awarded a star in the 2011 Michelin Guide, Chef Pierre Rigothier works with seasonal products supplied by French producers for the pleasure of even the most difficult to please palates.
