Combining stellar service with can-I-take-it-home-with-me Parisian style (spoiler: yes, you can), Maison Montespan is the tricked-out townhouse of choice when you’re staying in the City of Lights en famille. Each room is decked out with local fine art and antiques. Can’t bear to part ways with a particular painting? Pas de problème – every piece is available for purchase. Your fairy godparents – sorry, your personal butler and house manager – can arrange your most far-fetched flights of fancy: from culinary masterclasses to private concerts on the rooftop terrace, your wish is their command. Little Smiths are spoiled for choice, too – mini maestros can take lessons on the Steinway grand piano; other on-site options include sports classes and magic shows. After a day of indulgence, glide down the gilded bannister to your private gym and swimming pool – the pool doubles as a cinema, so you can brush up on your Bresson as you perfect your breaststroke.
