Lecomte Street is a real sweetie, a gorgeous little gem of a home nestled beneath sloping ceilings, a place where chic design meets just the right amount of rustic charm. Think candy striped wallpaper, shimmery mosaic and brushed steel, held in harmony in rooms as bright as they are fresh. Batignolles is pleasant and charming, a welcome refuge from the crowds of Montmartre just a few streets away. Equally populated by young families and a scattering of up-and-coming artists and aspiring entrepreneurs, you’ll find cafes, restaurants and, best of all, the resplendently beautiful Square des Batignolles, all within a five minute walk of your front door.
Your hosts have just got married, and Lecomte Street is very much their love nest. Their interests range from cooking to architecture, and they divide their time between Paris and Britain.
The sitting room of Lecomte Street is a gentle space, shaded in biscuit, caramel, sage and cream, with a distressed coffee table, an original iron fireplace and delicately striped wallpaper. The kitchen diner’s just next door, with space for six around the prettily painted table. As you’d expect from two accomplished chefs, the kitchen itself is smart and glossy, the cherry red units concealing a wealth of useful crockery and gadgets. The glimmering bathroom is almost brand new, with a deep tub and his and hers sinks, while the bedroom is calm and welcoming, with another original fireplace, and a sunny view from the soft double bed.
Nearest and dearest
The walk to Square des Batignolles is one of Paris’ great pleasures. It ought to take five minutes, but should you find yourself diverting into one of the many restaurants along the way, well, don’t say we didn’t warn you. After you’ve dined and strolled, head to nearby Montmartre for independent shops, street art and a glass or two of absinthe, before watching the sun sink from the steps of the Sacré-Coeur. The journey from Brochant to Châtelet takes a little over twenty minutes.
