Houses of the world

“It’s like home here, only better”† The hotel concept initiated by Maison du Monde is to offer exceptional places with sublimated decoration in the heart of the cities. The city of the dukes, Nantes, was the first destination where the hotel settled (followed by La Rochelle and then Marseille). The result of the collaboration between the furniture brand and the founders of the Vicartem group, which specializes in independent hotels, it offers 47 rooms and suites, fully furnished with the Maisons du Monde collections. The rooms are available in different themes – rock, exotic, classic chic – while the design of the apartments in turn takes inspiration from Palm Springs, Saint-Germain-des-Prés, Amsterdam or Zanzibar. 5 styles of rooms so that travel and change of scenery begin in this hotel “home”. From the entrance of the hotel, design and well-being come to the rendezvous: here there is no lobby, but a warm welcome as in a living room, where furniture, decoration and plants are subtly coordinated. Further on, a refined lounge, in a contemporary decor, welcomes visitors according to their wishes, at different times of the day. With its library, its kitchen and its large cozy tables, the place invites to relaxation, conversations and exchanges, be it family, friendly or professional.
