Chancer Posted March 9, 2015 Share Posted March 9, 2015 What is the real meaning of this and where can it be used?I hear it used all the time on French TV to describe large old buildings, nearly always in Paris that are being used as a single albeit very large home, they are definitely not sub divided and I see no evidence that they may ever have been a hôtel in the past, is the hôtel a red Herring?The dictionary definition is manor house, well in the countryside where manor houses would be they are never called hôtel particuliers, its either le château or une maison de maître.As an owner of what was once a hôtel can I boast that I own a hôtel particulier on draguerunechercheused'or.fr?
