When we say that Pierre Yves Rochon’s latest work is sumptuous, we mean it in the very literal sense of the term. Precious, magnifying the know-how of the finest craftsmen… the Hôtel Chopard, built adjacent to the eponymous boutique, leaves its visitors speechless. After a colossal restoration project, the property feels more like a huge private mansion than a hotel, for it is equipped with only 10 suites and 5 rooms, and fended by a discreet yet imposing façade. Meals are served in the bedrooms, in the lounges or at the table d’hôte opposite the kitchens. Now that discreet luxury is the new trend among the wealthiest clientele, this Parisian address is likely to be at the top of their list.
