Alastair Sawday’s pick of boutique Parisian hotels offers a touch of chic for those who prefer to avoid big-name chainsNungwi Village
This calm retreat in the heart of Montparnasse lets guests step out of the bustle and into a foyer full of natural light. A blend of old and new creates an individual, warm atmosphere: attractive flea market finds, antiques, characterful dark or honey-coloured wood furniture and headboards. Bedrooms have art, fresh flowers and splashes of colour from stylish fabrics; bathrooms are gleaming. Families and groups can choose communicating rooms. Have breakfast in your room or join the buffet in the dining room.
