Nancy is arguably one of the most architecturally-stunning spots in all of France with golden-hued buildings dripping Neo-classical and Baroque grandeur around every cobblestoned corner. And the epitome of this stunning period is Hotel d’Haussonville, a former 16th-century noble residence turned seven-room B&B that brims historical elegance—inside and out. Here’s why this French hideaway belongs on every design lover’s bucket list.
Landmark of luxury! The moment you step through the gorgeous gated courtyard—replete with a romantic ancient fountain and centuries-old statues—this magnificent stone structure oozes Art Nouveau charm.
The Grand Salon wows with original parquet floors, gilded oil paintings, ornate crown molding, and achingly-beautiful architectural details. It’s the perfect spot to savor the scrumptious French breakfast and romantic courtyard views.
Design in every detail. You couldn’t dream of a more serene vibe to soak in the old-world elegance: just seven rooms make up this intimate haven. And even that path is an architectural trove: a 500 year-old winding stone staircase—complete with hidden niches—leads to the guest quarters.
Each unpacks its own charm, all light-flooded and beyond spacious with soaring ceilings. Book the Suite Alicante and you’ll be rewarded with the best views in town from its splendid stone facades to cathedral spires.
Stunning sights, near and far. On a quaint side street just a stone’s throw from famed Place Stanislas, Hotel d’Haussonville’s setting—in the heart of old town—is one of the best in all of Nancy. Spend the day exploring its medieval churches, magnificent monuments, regal palaces, and enchanting squares. Meander Pépinière Park’s perfectly manicured gardens, and leafy trails.
Or simply get lost in the town’s winding, cobbled streets brimming with boutiques and charming cafes. Plus with Paris just 1.5 hours by train, it’s the perfect weekend escape: checkout Trainline to plan a dreamy ride through the French countryside. And since you’re in the heart of Lorraine, why not take a quick jaunt to the neighboring fairytale towns of Strasbourg, Colmar, or even Luxembourg. Best city base? It just might be…
