Pavillon de la Reine is an ivy-covered jewel tucked behind the Place des Vosges in Paris' hippest district, Le Marais.

The Pavillon de la Reine is a stunning hotel tucked away behind the sweeping idyllic Place des Vosges in Le Marais, Paris’ hip 3rd arrondisement. The square has an interior ceiling that covers a smattering of trendy restaurants and galleries but, turn down a tiny pathway on one side of the square, and you’re greeted by an ivy-covered beauty that twinkles with endless white fairy lights. There is nothing they won’t do for families, the location can’t be beaten (you’re a walk from some of best shops and museums in the city) and the luxury of the hotel makes it a perfect place to rest your head after a day pounding the Parisian pavements.

For You -

Pavillon de la Reine can organize babysitters at a moment’s notice, using a local, trusted agency, which you may want to use just for a few hours in the hotel’s spa. Replete with a Turkish spa and Hammam, private treatment rooms and Jacuzzis, it’s tucked away in the depths of the hotel making it a sanctuary from the city. If you can, we highly recommend booking into the very spoiling family suite, which has no less than two bedrooms, a living room and three bathrooms. Cribs are ready on arrival for babies and all children are greeted by teddies, Le Petit Prince bathroom products and macaroons. The best thing about this sumptuous spot is that, while luxurious, it is not formal and there is no sense whatsoever that children aren’t welcome, from the moment they hit the breakfast room to last minute calls for extra milk late at night – nothing seemed too much.

For Them +

If you stay at the hotel in the spring or summer months, you can enjoy a picnic on the lawn of the Place des Vosges’ inner square, all arranged by the hotel, which is ideal if there with young children and you don’t feel like dragging them around in the summer city heat. If it’s cooler and you’re keen to inject some culture to your trip, the concierge is incredibly knowledgable and able to give you tickets for certain galleries in the city so you don’t need to queue when you arrive; one such example is the nearby, utterly charming Picasso Museum, a top cultural spot with kids. They are also excellent for recommending local, family-friendly restaurants.
