Nothing screams luxury like a penthouse suite with a fabulous view, and the recently redesigned luxury penthouse at the Four Seasons George V in Paris is meant to fulfill the most discerning guests’ wishes to experience Paris like never before. Located just steps from the Champs-Elysées, this is an elegant apartment on the 8th floor of the hotel, with six terraces offering stunning 360 degree views of Paris.
The penthouse suite is a 1,630 square foot pied-a-terre that offers a light and airy interior that emphasizes open and elegant spaces. The soft tones of the travertine flooring are reflected in the walls decorated with sycamore and majilite, while beautiful floral arrangements create a sense of home the moment one opens the door.
Among the great surprises of the Penthouse Suite is the elegant winter garden, decorated in floral fabric and separated from the living room by a wrought iron door. At any time of the day or night it is the perfect place to enjoy a meal or drink while overlooking the Invalides, the American Cathedral and Eiffel Tower. The terrace, shaped like the bow of a ship, provides an even wider view of the City of Light: the roofs of the Madeleine, the Opera and the Pantheon are at one’s feel while the Eiffel Tower seems so close one almost touch it. From the terrace, steps lead to an intimate upper balcony perched even higher on the roof, where guests can enjoy a last glass of Champagne and savor the shimmering Eiffel Tower.
The bedroom with its own terrace is a new invitation to peacefulness. An elegant four-poster daybed invites to the most romantic nap perched high above the hustle and bustle of Paris.
Another gem in this suite is the spectacular beige marble bathroom, designed to be as luxurious as a lounge. Next to the huge walk-in shower stands a grand overflow bath fitted with jets and a chromotherapy system. Elegant white orchids give the impression that the outdoor extends right into the bathroom while a large dressing room bathed in natural light is decorated like a boudoir.
Some of the most high end brands were called upon for help in outfitting the penthouse suite, including Baccarat, Lalique, Lelièvre, Edmond Petit, Veraseta, and Bobic. If you’re used to the best, you’ll feel right at home.
