Fodor's Review

Built as the private home for the provost of the Cloisters, this grand old medieval building has luckily fallen into the hands of a friendly, multilingual couple devoted to making the most of its historic details—with their own bare hands. They've chipped away plaster from pristine quarried stone walls, cleaned massive beams, restored tile stairs, and mixed natural chalk and ocher to plaster the walls, which are prettily decorated with stencils. Bargain hunters should

opt for the sweet little top-floor rooms, with bath but sans WC, with views over the ancient rooftops.
