We've hardly had time to get used to the kids going back to school and the return of the first frosts before it's Christmas! To fully experience the magic of the festive period, the Chess Hotel invites you to enjoy a Parisian getaway that combines innovation with tradition.
In the heart of the City of Light
Never did Paris deserve its nickname as well as it does at the end of the year. From November, the capital's most beautiful avenues, including the unmistakable Champs-Élysées, are decorated with the most brilliant sparkles to create a spectacular and magical atmosphere. These decorations capture the hearts of young and old alike. Book a panoramic bus trip to immerse yourself fully in the splendour of Christmas in Paris; it's a chance to see some of the city's most beautiful illuminations without tiring yourself.
The magic of animated displays
The magic of the Christmas season always triggers fierce competition between the department stores. Each strives to present the most fabulous window displays - winter decorations, plush toys, puppets, sprites, sleds, electric trains and a vivid imagination is a must when creating enchanting landscapes and funny and moving sketches. Window shopping is a great way to enjoy daydream moments with the family in between bouts of serious Christmas shopping. Complete your outing with roasted chestnuts, a sugar crepe, a hot chocolate or a glass of hot wine for the adults!
Christmas is a magical period in Paris. To make the most of it, our team at The Chess Hotel is at your disposal. We'll tell you how to reach the best department store window displays or advise you of the best districts to see the illuminations – most often, they're just a few steps from your hotel!
