Photos and Description of this holiday apartment in Soho - Dufours Place II
1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom Home With Sophisticated Decor And A Breath-taking View
Far above the buzzing bars of Soho, Dufours Place II looks out over London’s iconic skyline. Reflecting the area’s signature chic style, inside you’ve a collection of funky artworks adorning the walls and floors, and cool Tolix gunmetal bar stools in the kitchen. Fix your gaze on the treasures of the nearby British Museum, or marvel at a matinee at one of Shaftesbury Avenue’s world-famous theatres. But when night falls, be sure to watch the twinkling city lights from the balcony’s pretty bistro set.
Spending much of their time in the French Alps, your hosts are connoisseurs of the spectacular vista. When trading France’s snowy peaks for London’s skyscrapers, they love to take in the fantastic view from their balcony.
In Dufours Place II you’ll get acquainted with London’s most stylish side: meet the gaze of Gilbert and George as you browse the cool artwork from the comfort of the charcoal-grey swan sofa, or gaze upon the glowing London Eye as you mix a colourful cocktail in the industrial kitchen, all dangling Edison bulbs and gleaming subway tiles.
Indeed, here you can even shape your stay according to your own vision – should you wish, the double bed folds back to extend the floor for an evening of entertaining.

Soho – an untidy warren of West End streets and alleys bounded by Oxford Street, Shaftesbury Avenue, Regents Street and the Charing Cross Road - is today known for innovative fine dining, media-centric members bars and a run of gay pubs and bars on Old Compton Street, the closest London comes to Castro Street. And it’s pretty close.
Soho is the effective centre of the British film industry and there are still dozens of gone-digital post-production houses here. It also has a good measure of advertising and PR agencies, all of which gives Soho – despite an unnerving sense that it psychically stuck in its 1980s glory days - an undeniable glamour and a certain swagger.
And if hipster London is now way east of here, there are still a smattering of cool boutiques. Even Carnaby Street, and the newly fangled ‘Newburgh Quarter' isn’t quite the stretch of exploitative tat it once was. And if you include Liberty in the mix, Soho can claim the best department store in town.
