The most authentic way to discover the historic legacy of the Latin Quarter district would be to stay in one of its oldest venues, such as Hôtel d’Aubusson. This hotel was built in the 17th century and has preserved its olden-day quirks with passion and flair, including features such as Versailles parquet, traditional wood beams and monumental fireplaces in Burgundy stone. There’s also the gorgeous Aubusson tapestries (a particular style of tapestry that originated in Limousin) that inspired the hotel’s name. Make sure to take advantage of the hotel’s interior patio, a hidden winter garden that functions as a welcome haven of peace, sheltered away from the hustle and bustle of the city. There’s no better place to enjoy a taste of Parisian life than by tucking into a croissant and coffee on this terrasse.
