There’s a gift of a view here: old Paris crookedly climbing to the Sacré Cœur. Your interesting, cultured, hosts, Isabelle and photographer Jacques, are well-travelled. Beautiful great tomes of Jacques’ images of Paris, Morocco and various exotic destinations fill an entire shelf and his framed photos mingle with good eclectic art in their drawing/dining room. Breakfast may be in here, or out on the flowery, suntrap balcony. Your big white bedroom off the landing has an independent entrance; find a modern, airy space filled with more photos and books, lamps and colourful rugs – all peaceful in its rooftop seclusion.
