Q&A with Marie Treppoz
Before revealing all about these incredible estates, a little Q&A with Marie Treppoz, co-founder of Homanie and mother of 4!
The story behind the name Homanie in Marie's words
It begins with home which is how we imagine each of our estates: a warm and welcoming place, a respite and in the midst of a busy world, a place of joy and comfort where you can relax, recharge and enjoy time with those you love!
Homanie also evokes the Sanskrit mantra of compassion “om mani padme hum”: respect and care to others are part of our philosophy.
Furthermore Manie means jewel: we envision our homes and guests too as rare gems!
We may be biassed since our childrenswear and smocked dress boutique, L'île aux Fées, is located in the very heart of Paris, but the City of Light holds a very special place in our heart. Floating down the River Seine, strolling in the parks, admiring some of the greatest art works and climbing up the Eiffel Tower make for a perfect family trip.
The capital abounds with luxury hotels yet there is nothing quite like feeling truly ‘at home’ when travelling with little ones. Located close to the Panthéon and Luxembourg gardens, Homanie’s 18th century 300m2 mansion is the ideal haven of peace for your family stay.
After a busy day exploring the city, you will delight in relaxing by the pool, taking supper in the garden and watching a movie in the home cinema all together. You will also appreciate waking up to the sounds of birds and bells of the nearby Collège des Irlandais.
Entirely renovated, the 5 bedroom and 3 bathroom home, including a magnificent master suite, is both welcoming and extremely functional.
For your comfort and entertainment, the Homanie concierge services can organise yoga sessions on the terrace, massages by the pool, book guides tours, plan a day to Disneyland or cooking lessons with a chef at home!
Your every wish will be granted allowing you to enjoy Paris in the very best conditions!

Another must-see in France is the French Riviera. It is one of the country’s most iconic holiday resorts. To enjoy the Mediterranean French art of living at its best, the Domaine de Canaille is our first choice.
Overlooking the beach and its turquoise blue waters, the prestigious villa is the former Revestel Hotel which once welcomed Winston Churchill and Virginia Woolf.
With 12 bedrooms, the estate can welcome a wide family or several if you wish to plan unforgettable vacations with friends.
Its swimming pool and wide array of activities will keep young and old entertained and create the most incredible memories. Bike rides, paddle or kayak lessons, boat tours with aperitif in the creeks, yoga classes, wine tasting, hiking, helicopter flight to Porquerolles island, side cars in Marseille...
Wellbeing retreats are also organised all year long: the perfect opportunity for an adult’s getaway!
