Le Roch Hôtel & Spa just cut in line on our list of destinations. This adorable 5-star boutique hotel located on the Rue Saint-Roch in the 1st arrondissement of Paris is a step away from the bustle of St-Honoré, and has a heartbeat of its own. Recently redesigned by Sarah Lavoine, an icon of Parisian style, the space has taken on an elegant intimacy. With homey yet lavish details in all the right spaces, it feels like the walls themselves have history and family secrets.
Lavoine was the perfect choice – a dream choice – to lend her style and inspiration to the redesign of Le Roch. Her family home is nearby, and she knows the neighborhood the way one can only know a place when you become a part of it. She has infused her life and design instinct into every space, from the rooms to the bar. You get the feeling there of having stepped into your own home away from home, or at least one you might dream up.
