A historical site

In the middle of the 17th century, Benedictine sisters fled the Lorraine wars to find refuge in Paris. First placed on rue Férou, in the current Odéon district, they were later transferred to rue Cassette (at the time, "rue Casset") in 1659, under Anne of Austria's protection, mother of Louis XIV. This new building, located in the heart of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, was named the "Monastery of Perpetual Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament" and extended as far as rue du Cherche-Midi and rue de Vaugirard.

the décor

Hotel de l'Abbaye owes its special soul to the collaboration between the French decorator Michel Boyer and Gisèle and Pierre-Antoine Lafortune, the original owners, who decided in the 1990s to convert this magically preserved place into a hotel. An ambassador of the French style, Boyer skillfully mixed prints and colorful patterns, sublimating the ancient stones' charm and the lush garden of this unique Parisian house.
