Fear and Trembling, Hygiene and the Assassin, The Stranger Next Door... Amelie Nothomb has become a darling of the French literary scene; a dream girlfriend who seems to whisper secrets in our ear. Enter her world by staying in the room she inspired at the Hotel Les Bulles de Paris...

 

About Amélie Nothomb

How best to describe a character so enigmatic and endearing? All dressed in black, with her towering eccentric hats and her charming Belgian accent, she is an appealing combination of lightness and gravity. She is prolific, publishing approximately a book a year. She is not a pretentious intellectual; her works are accessible yet edgy. She dresses our wounds and thinks of our ills, or the other way around, but always leaves us with mixed feelings of joy and nostalgia, melancholy and tenderness. And especially the insatiable desire to read the next book. Les Prénoms Epicènes is out this year (no English translation available yet).

 

A room in her image

Amélie has never made a secret of her love for champagne, references to which are sprinkled throughout her work. What could be more natural, then, to entrust to her the design of one of the rooms of the Hotel Les Bulles de Paris, an establishment devoted to the precious nectar. In a world of gold and champagne, you will enjoy the play of reflections and lights, and the quotes that adorn the walls. The open plan bathroom features an elegant freestanding bathtub that allows you to contemplate Paris and the roofs of Notre-Dame. The perfect place to crack open your copy of Les Prénoms Epicènes, while enjoying a bath (even one of Champagne if you want!)

 

Begin the story of this father / daughter relationship in the best possible setting, one created by the novelist in person, by booking the Amelie Nothomb room at the Hotel Les Bulles de Paris!
