A room at La Belle Juliette in Paris, France

These days being a socialite usually means lots of bad behavior and your own reality TV show. But once upon a time, a socialite embodied culture and grace. Born in 1777, beloved by Châteaubriand and best friends with Madame de Stael, Juliette Récamier held her salons in her apartment in the Abbaye-aux-Bois. Her elegant lifestyle is the inspiration for the nearby boutique hotel, La Belle Juliette, beginning with rich seductive color schemes and tasteful boudoir style. Indulgences include leisurely morning meals and afternoon tea, Eastern-inspired beauty treatments at the house spa and bespoke cocktails at the bar. A coveted Left Bank location among the boutiques and cafés of Saint Germain des Près completes the appeal of this intimate escape.
