Introduction: The vast mansion which now houses the Relais Christine was built on the remains of the Abbey of the Grands-Augustins, founded in 1231.
This delightful and discreetly luxurious boutique hotel has managed to preserve the intimacy of the private residence it once was.
Its comfortable and welcoming 48 rooms and suites, the quiet atmosphere of its lounge, the charm of the spa, its private flowered garden and its personalised service make it a restful and friendly place to stay, worthy of the best Parisian addresses.
Above information is how the hotel presents itself on their website.
