25 years ago my wife and I renovated 3 townhouses in New Orleans’ French Quarter, creating the Soniat House Hotel. We traveled frequently to France to collect its antique furnishings. Fodor’s named it one of the 20 best hotels in the world and it’s included in ‘1000 Places to See Before You Die’. Because of the remarkable response to the furnishings, we opened our antiques Galleries twelve years ago and have now become a source for many of America’s best Interior Designers.
One thing leads to another; the success of the antiques business keeps us returning frequently each year and led to the creation of our apartment on the left bank. Located in our favorite part of Paris, it is comfortable and filled with light, and it is furnished with things we love.
The food and flower open air market at the foot of Rue Mouffetard is open daily but is wonderful on Sunday. Alternately, the market at Place Monge is open 3 times per week. A visit to the Luxembourg Gardens is a must and the nearby Museum of Natural History is fascinating. The neighborhood has boulangeries, patisseries, fromageries, ethnic and French restaurants, bank, drugstore, cafes, convenience store - everything you need. Details are on page 210 of the Zagat guide in the study/TV room. Two Metro stations are within walking distance. If you aren't interested in the nearby health club, you can join the firemen on their fitness runs in the Luxembourg Gardens.
