Love and bargains this winter in Paris
Publish on Sunday, 1 January 2023 in Entertainment
Although the festive season madness has passed, Paris still retains all its appeal and enchantment, even in the midst of winter. Whether you visit the capital in January for the sales or in February for Valentine's Day, the ideally located Ouest Hotel offers the ideal starting point for your adventures. Here are some ideas to whet your appetite…
The excitement of the Paris winter sales
The 2023 winter sales period kicks off on January 11th and the bargain hunting frenzy will last until February 7th. That means you’ll have four weeks in which to take advantage of the great deals and reduced prices on offer and to soak up the special atmosphere of the sales in Paris. Setting out from the Ouest Hotel, a pleasant five-minute walk takes you to one of the Parisian temples of shopping: Printemps Haussmann. Under the listed dome of this legendary department store, you’ll discover the creations of designers who have been setting trends for decades, alongside those who are just making a name for themselves. A few steps away is the Galeries Lafayette, where your department store shopping spree can continue. For a different style but the same level of refinement, go to the Rue Saint-Honoré. The big names are found there, too, alongside art galleries and antique dealers. The walk through the heart of Paris is inspiring. From the concept stores of the Marais to the Golden Triangle of haute couture, Paris is a delight for shopaholics.
Your romantic break in Paris
Although Paris is a romantic city throughout the year, Valentine's Day brings an extra loving lustre. You’ll find plenty of ways to make this special day even more delightful. Why not start with a stroll in the picturesque Parc Monceau, a fifteen-minute walk from the hotel? With its colonnade and large pond, this public green space offers the ideal setting for a romantic interlude. Not far away, the Museum of Romantic Life invites you to rediscover the Romanticism movement of the 19th century and learn about famous lovers such as Alfred de Musset and George Sand. Fancy a treat for two? In ten minutes on foot, you can be at the Madeleine. Close to this world-famous church, Le Nôtre, Fauchon, and Ladurée compete creatively to offer delicious delicacies, while famous brands such as Maison Lucas Carton, which has been delighting gourmets for three centuries, and Maxim's are perfect for an intimate meal for two. And for a romantic evening, why not try the new version of the Lido? The famous Parisian cabaret on the Champs-Élysées is reinventing itself and has been offering a dazzling show since November 2022.
Take advantage of your winter stay at the Ouest Hôtel to discover the electrifying atmosphere of the sales or be embraced by the city’s romantic nature. Our team is at your service to help you find the activities that will suit you best.
