Do you dream of a terrace? Would you sell mother and father for a café-croissant in the sun? Impossible is not Parisian. Our 3 chief solutions for chilling and tanning.
The tropéziennes of the Hôtel du Sentier
We had already told you about the eagerly awaited opening of the Hôtel du Sentier , Place du Caire, where all the Parisian fashion week took place last January. This is the hotel to test! But “ the place to be ”, these are the rooms with private rooftops , its famous “ Tropezian terraces ”, where bistro tables and deckchairs are set up in full sun, a real invitation to lounge all day with a view over the rooftops of Paris.
The extra thing: the possibility of renting the room for the day and inviting friends to lunch with you on the terrace and having the kitchen of the hotel bistro brought up. The old-fashioned way: we order a lie, a real croque-monsieur , brioche perdue , an omelet and a refill of fries, all served on a bistro table. The dream, right?
Terrace rooms from € 85 per day (11 am-6pm) with lunch on site and € 400 / night. 2 place du Caire, Paris 2nd.

The penthouse of a chic Parisian apartment
So, a priori, we wouldn't necessarily have had the idea of putting our luggage in the sky of a luxurious Airbnb loft . All in all, this extraordinary penthouse which overlooks Paris gives a real taste of vacation and change of scenery with a Navigo pass. Flemme to cook? It's time to blow up Jean Imbert's Mamie basket (52 €) just a stone's throw away, as if the Top Chef season 3 had put himself in the kitchen for you.
The added bonus: the crazy bathroom like in a movie, which opens onto the terrace and overlooks the Seine and the Eiffel Tower as if you were a princess. The chic of living, definitely, is a state of mind.
330 € / day on Airbnb
A small house on the roofs of Maison Breguet
A small house on 2 floors with garden set on the most bohemian of Parisian palaces. Better than a suite, it is one of the best kept secrets in Paris, tucked away a few steps from the Bastille. Shall we visit? Instead, aim for: 2 bedrooms served by a small staircase (ideal for meeting up with your crew of girlfriends or a couple of friends). But also an extraordinary bathroom with free-standing bathtub, a lounge and a bar which open onto a private terrace for aperitifs, a wild breakfast and sunbathing on the beds. Peckish ? “Hello Room Service? I would like a burger, a Caesar salad and a little glass of rosé! ”
The added bonus: private access to the swimming pool , the gym and the spa with hammam and sauna.
Suite Small house with garden from p. from 800 €. 8 rue Bréguet, Paris 11th.
