Family-run hotel operator Chevalier Paris has opened a new 47-key boutique hotel in the heart of Paris. 

Pavillon Faubourg Saint-Germain is the newest addition to the Chevalier Paris portfolio, which encompasses three other Parisian properties: Le Petit Moulin, Le Pavillion de la Reine and Pavillon des Lettres. 

The newest property occupies three historic buildings, which previously housed literary figures such as James Joyce and Ernest Hemingway, in the seventh arrondissement in the highly-sought after Saint-Germain-des-Prés neighbourhood. Facilities include a library, a bar, a bistro and a subterranean spa.

Cavern of tranquility 

Billed as a ‘cavern of tranquility beneath the city’s bustling left bank’, Spa des Prés is located in a vaulted cellar that was previously home to Quod Libet, a legendary cabaret that launched the career of composer and poet Léo Ferré. 

The state-of-the-art urban spa is accessible via stone steps, which are designated as a historical monument, and occupies just 140sqm. It offers two treatment rooms, a swimming pool, a hammam, a fitness suite with Technogym equipment, and a meditation and yoga room.

Codage Paris

The spa treatment menu offers rituals from Codage Paris and includes personalised experiences that combine custom products with purposeful gestures to relax, stimulate and detoxify the body. 

Available treatments include Travel Detox, which focuses on the legs, neck and back, while Shopping Break is designed to eliminate fatigue. 

The spa was created by interior designer Didier Benderli, who developed the design for the entire hotel, in partnership with architect Vincent Bestie.
