One of the most romantic cities in the world, Paris is characterised by Baroque architecture, beautiful gardens, bustling pavement cafes, excellent museums and fabulous shopping. Just like Cole Porter, we “love Paris in the spring time”; dappled sunshine brightens the mood, the heady scent of blossom fills the air and café culture bursts into life.
Paris is home to many flagship stores, including Louis Vuitton, Chanel and Dior, as well as plenty of jewellers on the Rue de la Paix. If that sounds a tad daunting, we’ll arrange a personal shopper to help you navigate Cacharel, Alexander McQueen and Lacroix to name just three. An expert industry guide could also take you to the haute couture fashion houses and the Yves Saint Laurent Foundation – which is closed to the public - where you can see the archives of this iconic designer.
Honeymoon Highlights of Paris
- Whether simply taking a stroll or chartering a boat for a dinner cruise, the River Seine is a timelessly romantic way to experience Paris.
- A helicopter flight is a special and private way to visit the historic city of Versailles. Once there, our team can arrange a romantic picnic in Versailles gardens, with the glorious Chateau as your backdrop.
- One of the world's busiest museums, The Louvre houses an impressive collection of art and artefacts. Visiting at night when other visitors have gone home is the most atmospheric way to take it all in.
- Fragonard Parfumier is one of the city's best, and it offers the opportunity for the two of you to spend a morning or afternoon learning about the art and creating your own individual fragrances .
- Monet's house and gardens in Giverny will take you back to 1883 when he was working with Manet, Renoir & Sisley. The Japanese bridge over the water lily pond was his greatest source of inspiration.
Food is practically a religion in France, and a food walk allows you to soak up the atmosphere of the city while a restaurant critic leads you behind the scenes at some of the best food suppliers, from a world-renowned boulangerie to a chocolatier trained by the very best. If you fancy Champagne tasting, it’s an easy day trip.
Antique hunting in the St. Ouen Flea Market is great fun. The largest antiques market in the world, it has more than 3,000 stalls selling everything from trinkets to porcelains, paintings and furniture; and the dealers are great characters. The Louvre des Antiquaires, a stylish mall devoted primarily to antiques, is the major centre of attraction for the whole French art and antiques world.
If you’d like to explore the countryside just outside Paris, we’ll arrange a private car and driver to take you to the Port de L’Arsenal for a private river cruise. The wide and gentle Marne River will transport you from industrial Paris to the rolling rural countryside for a leisurely lunch aboard, stopping to explore points of interest.
