A house in 1920s style

Not far from the Deûle canal and Old Lille, on the corner of two streets, the “Maison Carrée” does not pass unnoticed. It is built in the typical 1920s style with decorative brick friezes, a tall, steeply-pitched roof and a walled garden with a terrace and a swimming pool. The interior has been carefully restored, with great attention paid to finding suitable colours, furniture and ornaments. The furniture is a mixture of Art Deco, industrial and travelling pieces picked up here and there, and it helps to create a unique atmosphere in each bedroom. The bedrooms in the house each have a pretty ensuite bathroom with a mosaic floor, painted woodwork, and either old-fashioned or contemporary washbasins and baths. A regularly-changed selection of paintings by local artists decorates the walls of the house. Two beautiful suites are located in an outbuilding opposite the house. The ground-floor suite is very modern and has a huge French window opening onto the garden, plus a lounge, an office, a bedroom and a bathroom. The first-floor suite is especially suitable for families and includes two bedrooms, a lounge and a bathroom. Each suite has its own private entrance. Breakfast is served on the sumptuous dining-room table. For evening meals, your hostess will be delighted to suggest the best local restaurants or to order you a takeaway meal to be delivered to the B&B. A very beautiful place from which to discover Lille and its nearby museums.
