On Offer: Paris’s historic Faubourg-Montmartre neighborhood has seen a boutique hotel renaissance in recent years with the opening of the Walled Off Hotel (a recreation of Banksy’s art-driven property in Israel) and the stylish art deco Monsieur Cadet. Now comes La Fantaisie, a whimsical gem that stands as a tribute to its location on Rue Cadet, named for the master 16th-century gardeners Jacques and Jean Cadet.
The interiors, crafted by celebrated Swedish designer Martin Brudnizki, offer a serene escape from the city’s pulsating energy. Each of the 63 rooms and 10 suites captures the essence of nature, adorned with a delicate palette of soft greens, warm yellows, and hints of coral. Floral wallpapers, lavish headboards, and ornate details offer up signature Brudnizki maximalism packaged in a serene wrapping. (The minibar’s high-vibe holistic health treats amplify that feeling with Cosmic Dealer’s vegan chocolate, ayurvedic tongue cleaners, être’s CBD tinctures, and L’Officine Botanique’s sleep elixir).
Standout Features: Marking her triumphant return to Paris, renowned chef Dominique Crenn’s zero-waste restaurant, Golden Poppy, showcases her California spirit with dishes like banana pancakes with caviar and line-caught sea bass ceviche. But plan ahead: The 9th arrondissement’s discerning epicureans have already set up shop at the rooftop bar and clamor for a spot at the sun-drenched brasserie for breakfast come morning.
