2 Rooms Max 4 personsAs refined as this esteemed part of Paris, this fifth-floor home is worth the climb. The front door opens into a hallway, which leads first to the master bedroom. White-painted and simply furnished, it’s made characterful by many exotic artworks and antiques. Beyond that is a toilet room and the sleek, mirrored bathroom, and then right at the end of the hallway there’s the second bedroom. Also white-painted, it has a double bed, a desk and a little balcony.

In historic Le Marais the medieval buildings and narrow cobbled streets have remained untouched for centuries – and from the outside Boulevard de Sebastopol is a classic fit. But the interiors were designed with bold strokes, with purple accents and sleek furniture contrasting the classical 18th century facade. Look up for shapely lamps and ornate mouldings, or down to where the amethyst drapes almost touch the parquet floors. But this home’s key exhibit is its collection of vivid artworks – from graffiti-style portraits to colourful mosaics.

Suspended over the valley and merged into the hills, the Cube House is covered by the green of the Atlantic forest, in the Mantiqueira mountain region, around 2 hours by car from São Paulo city. Made of wood, seems to float and blend into the treetops.
