The name says it all! La Vie en Rose is a singularly luxe experience in a city full of luxe experiences. For a mere $2,500 for the first week's stay, this floating non-smoking hotel (Bateau Jolia) offers personalized service such that you won't experience anywhere else in Paris. The barge is yours for the week, docked at the Quai St Bernard with dazzling views of the flying buttresses of Notre Dame. The hosts, David & Laura Ann Novick, have seen to every detail to make yours a most romantic stay. You'll be greeted with down comforters, marble tub, L'Occitane bath products, frosted bottle of champagne upon your arrival, and cozy bathrobes that you take home, all included in the price. What could be more romantic?

Added to that, David will whip up up a gourmet breakfast geared to your expectations, delicacies such as piping hot croissants fresh-baked & direct from the oven, blinis, eggs with smoked salmon, Toulouse sausage - whatever you like.

You may read more about this fantastic experience in Thirza Vallois' Romantic Paris (p. 63) or the Duncan Petersen Guide Charming Small Hotel Guides.
