Have you ever wanted to stay in a Paris mansion? Well you certainly can, and it may be more affordable than you think!


We give a rundown of Top 5 mansion stays, from better known Parisian havens to some hidden gems in the capital.



An authentic way to experience Paris


The term ‘Hôtel particulier’ refers to large private townhouses or mansions in France, and doesn’t mean they are hotels. That said, a number of these grand dwellings have now opened their doors to travelers.


But why would you want to stay in a Paris mansion? The city has many hotels to choose from – over 1,500 in fact.


However, the mansion properties are seeing a surge in popularity – and it’s not hard to see why.


With fewer rooms, they have a boutique feel and offer luxury accommodation without the crowds, no queues at the reception desk, and other benefits such as private dining experiences.


Another attraction is authenticity – you feel more like a welcome houseguest than a tourist.


Mansion stays can vary in price, so you don’t have to be a millionaire to enjoy a taste of the lavish Parisian lifestyle.
