The Rue St.-Honoré: one of Paris’ most sought-after addresses and exclusive shopping destinations, and you have the rare opportunity to become one of its residents. Step out of your front door and you’ll find yourself surrounded by luxury couturiers, designer boutiques, (Colette, one of Paris’ most famous shopping destinations, is less than a minute’s walk away), window displays heaped with chocolates, perfumes, patisserie… You name it, you’ll find it here. A shopping and sightseeing paradise
Something for everyone
A touch of Parisian magic
Your apartment is pretty special too: its décor will definitely appeal to music lovers, and you’re sure to be tempted to lounge on the creamy leather sofa watching the enormous flat screen TV. Or you could while away the evening perched on a bar stool by the window, sip-ping an aperitif and watching the beautiful people of Paris pass by. Situated on the third floor with a view of the street and facing the magnificent late Baroque church of Saint-Roch, you’re surrounded by some of the city’s most beautiful architecture, whilst inside your apartment you’ve got WiFi, a queen-sized bed with crisp white sheets fit for Louis XIV himself and the fluffiest of towels imaginable,.
A fully equipped open-plan kitchen makes this the perfect pad if you fancy trying your hand at a bit of haute cuisine, maybe with a few choice ingredients from the local market or some-thing a bit more exotic from one of the many deli's lining the street. Or if you prefer to let someone else do the hard work, there’s no shortage of bars and restaurants around here, complete with terraces and outside tables so that you don’t miss a second out there in Paris.
You’re ideally placed for sightseeing too, what with the Jardin des Tuileries just around the corner, and the Louvre a few minutes’ walk away, whilst the Comédie-Française and the Opera are both handily close by for a special evening out. The history buffs among you will also be delighted to know about this place’s involvement in the French Revolution, which quite literally left its mark in the form of bullets in the building’s exterior wall! And should you decide that you want to venture out of this super central Parisian 1st arrondissement, the Tui-leries, Palais Royal-Musée du Louvre and Pyramides (lines 1 and 7) Métro stations are all just a short walk away.

The Louvre-Tuileries area is undoubtedly known for the word-class Louvre museum, situated on the romantic and picturesque banks of the Seine, as well as the Jardin des Tuileries, the Musée de l’Orangerie, and the Galerie Nationale du Jeu de Paume. However, the adjacent streets are also home to some of the best retail shops and luxury brands, particularly the bou-tique-lined boulevards of Place Vendôme and rue de Rivoli. You’ll also find ultra-cool concept stores such as Colette and Kitsuné Boutique on rue Saint Honoré, as well as the hustle and bustle of Little Tokyo. If shopping and sightseeing aren’t really your thing, why not de-light your taste buds at Au Pied de Cochon, Kunitoraya or Kinuga instead?

Christmas in Paris. Sounds magical? It is.
Christmas in Paris is one of the best times of year to visit. Paris food shops glow with colorful Christmas displays including chocolate Père Noels, groaning cheese shelves and dazzling towers of champagne ready to topple over.
Each patisserie (pastry shop) tries to outdo each other with seasonal delights. Paris seems to have an endless appetite for Buche de Noel (Christmas log cakes) and magical confections.
From Brittany, fresh oysters arrive daily and are displayed outside of many restaurants, brasseries and bistros. Each corner store has crates of oysters ready to take home for your own oyster feast. Oysters are to France what turkey is to us. A Christmas without oysters? Unthinkable to the Gallic mindset!
Special Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and New Years Eve menus are served in restaurants with plenty of foie gras, wild game, truffles and are multi-course extravaganzas. But enough about the food. France also celebrates with spectacular lights and displays in the windows of department stores. Even the ferris wheel set up on the Place de la Concorde has a spectacular seasonal light show. You won't want to miss the 150,000 lights on Champs Elysees and the lights and window decorations of the Grand Magasins.
Looking for what to do during Christmas in Paris? One of France’s most charming Baroque castles is just thirty miles from Paris. During the holidays, the Chateau de Vaux-le-Vicomte and its gardens are illuminated with thousands of lights. There's even costumes for the kids to dress up as a Prince, Princess or Musketeer. FYI: the fairytale castle of Vaux-le-Vicomte was the inspiration for Versailles.
Many Paris museums & monuments are open during the holidays, with the exception of Christmas Day and New Year's Day, including: the Louvre Museum, Musee D'Orsay, Rodin Museum, the Pompidou Center.
The Eiffel Tower, though, is open every single day of the year. Imagine spending Christmas day on top of the tower! Hotel de Ville (Paris City Hall) also celebrates the holidays with a seasonal skating rink where you can rent a pair of skates to do a few figure eights on the banks of the Seine.
Yes, it's touristy but did you know the Moulin Rouge is the number-one rated show in Paris? If you are in Paris for Christmas, take in Christmas dinner and a show at the cabaret that the Belle Epoque painter Toulouse-Lautrec made famous.
Christmas concerts are performed throughout the city at some very churches throughout the city including Saint Germain des Pres, the Madeleine, Sainte Chapelle and Notre Dame Cathedral. It's possible to visit a different culturally important venue daily to get your dose of Christmas concerts.
Christmas in Paris is one of the most vibrant times of year to get an insiders glimpse of French culture.
