This year you might be finding it harder than usual to immerse yourself in the festive season spirit! However, during your stay at the Hotel L’Interlude, you will discover that Paris still retains a magical ambiance conducive to this time of joy and celebration. So, why not take the opportunity to indulge in the pleasure of Christmas shopping?
Christmas shopping near your Hotel L’Interlude
There’s no need to head across Paris to get your last-minute shopping done. Conveniently close to our hotel is Bercy Village. This shopping centre, the only one of its kind, has been developed on the site where the world’s largest wine market once stood. You can stroll in the open air along pedestrianised and picturesque cobblestoned lanes lined with some fifty shops housed in faithfully restored stone wine warehouses. The illuminations and festive atmosphere add the perfect finishing touch to get you into the Christmas spirit. The 12th arrondissement is also a lively and popular district where many artisans and artists have opened outlets. A great opportunity to find an original gift!
The Christmas shopping essentials
But Christmas shopping in Paris would not be complete without a visit to the city’s famed Grands Magasins (department stores). Located about fifteen minutes by Metro from your Hotel L’Interlude, each year they offer a magical experience. At Printemps Haussmann and Galeries Lafayette you’ll find huge, illuminated Christmas trees towering colourfully overhead, as well as animated window displays that fascinate young and old alike. From there, you can continue to the trendy concept stores of the Marais, the luxury boutiques of the Golden Triangle near the Champs-Elysées, or even to modern shopping malls such as Beaugrenelle on the other side of the Seine…
The current crisis is not going to spoil the fun of Christmas shopping! During your stay at the Hotel L’Interlude, simply ask our team for their tips and recommendations about making the most of Christmas shopping in Paris!
