Hotel Caron de Beaumarchais, Marais

 

It isn't everyday you get to have petit dejeuner with Marie-Antoinette 👑 

But I did last Sunday at Hotel Caron de Beaumarchais


As I was passing on Saturday, on a whim, I went inside to ask if If I could have breakfast even though I was not a resident at the hotel. 
Their response was,”Of course.”👏👏👏🤸‍♂️
This is my dream Paris hotel in the Marais. 
I often stop and gaze in their windows on rue Veille-du-Temple, usually filled with antique bibelots like this enamel snuff box. 
The hotel’s namesake, Pierre-Augustin Caron de Beaumarchais, lived on rue Veille du Temple. He born on in Paris, a polymath. He was a writer, musician, secret agent, a businessman, first publisher of Voltaire and the playwrite who wrote the  Marriage of Figaro and The Barber of Seville.
Beaumarchais had 3 charming wives no doubt. This is his harp student, Marie Adelaide, one of the daughters of Louis XV.
It’s a step back into the 18th century 
Something we all could use from time to time. For a look at their rooms visit their instagram.
In 1759, as a distinguished favor, Beaumarchais was appointed harp professor to 
the 4 daughters of King Louis XV, who resided at court i.e. the harp in the entrance. 
Les hotel prix… 
I loved the decorative period vignettes scattered around the hotel and couldn’t resist painting a few.
My breakfast was divine (13€) Peut-être too divine. I ate too much jam to go to the pool 🏊‍♀️ afterwards…
Sometimes I put their hotel cards into your Paris letters💌 
🥂Bon Vendredi dear PBers🥂Have a Happy Labor Day weekend🥂

    What a lovely historical hotel and I think €13 totally reasonable for such a breakfast (boiled egg, pastry, toast/jam/butter, juice, hot drink). Paris breakfasts are definitely good and missing me!

      You can fall out of bed into line 1, place de Vosges is nearby, museums and great shopping and eating. Maybe I should move in...?

    I adore orange juice. My two favorite places to drink orange juice: any place in Mexico and any place in Spain. The guy who lives behind me has an orange tree. The most incredible oranges I’ve ever tasted. Now for some reason this year they’re not producing. Last year several branches fell over my fence and I feasted on those lovely oranges.

      Sounds grand. That OJ was very good too…freshly made. I love the pomegranate juice machines here next to the OJ. The poms come from Spain of course.
