Boutique hotel Pariisin Ville in Porvoo - what a gem!

If a hotel can be love at first sight (and we all know it can!), boutique hotel Pariisin Ville in Porvoo is just that.

* * * 

Boutique hotel Pariisin Ville in Porvoo is a hotel I'd been dreaming of ever since they opened (yes, I do love my hotels. That much...) For me Porvoo is something that needs to be experienced at least once a summer, but it's impossible to get enough of it in just one day. 

So, what you really want to do is make your way here for a romantic minibreak and trust me: you can't do better than this hotel.

The moment I walked into the hotel that comprises of just 10 rooms, I knew my stay was going to be a good one. A very good one. 

The jazz lingering in the background, decor that is just the right amount of opulence and elegance and friendly service immediately whisked me into another world; a world where it's never too early for Champagne and life is there to be enjoyed.

Both the hotel and its owners' restaurant Sicapelle have been named after another bona fide bon vivant; a sculptor Ville Vallgren (1855-1940).

"Open, loud, impulsive and peculiar friend of good food and wine" is how the hotel'd website describes the man; words that sound eerily familiar...!

(Sicapelle, by the way, was his pet pig, so in peculiarity stakes he beats yours truly)

Hotel's wine bar sources its carefully curated wines from small quality producers in Central Europe. Focus is on organic and biodynamic wines.

Hotel's unique ambiance is down to thoroughly thought-through details; both in the public areas and each of the individually designed rooms (prices €135- €290 per night, including breakfast).

Each room has a separate living room area in addition to the sleeping room. Some have their own sauna, one even its own sauna department with its own balcony.

Everything here is done just a little bit better - starting from the toiletries.

The only minus comes for the wifi, which none of us could get to work.

That just a little bit better applies to breakfast as well, and I managed to Instagram quite possibly the perfectly ethereal breakfast photo, the Holy Grail of travel bloggers. 

(Ok, I'm a little ashamed right now...)

Small but top quality selection comes from local small producers.

And hey - in case you can't bear to leave your room, you can have the breakfast come to you! With Champagne! (€65 for two)

How about that? Isn't that just about the most adorable hotel you've ever seen?
