Without a doubt, there are a hundred things you can do in Paris with kids- as a Travel Advisor, I plan family vacations to France regularly and they are fun, fabulous, memory-making moments. However, as a grown up, stressed out, working mother of three kids- there is one reason I to go to Paris- romance! Parisian romance is all about luxury and decadence. This is the place to splurge- on food, wine, and accommodations.
We relaxed in laid back luxury on the left bank at the Esprit St. Germain. The 28 room hotel is chic yet welcoming and its location in the upscale 6th arrondissement makes it the perfect place to grab your honey and stroll the streets languishing in the sights and smells emanating from the patisseries and boulangeries. After a day of wandering through the Luxembourg Gardens and shopping, the overstuffed sofas in the Esprit St, Germain’s “living room” were perfect for sharing an aperitif by the fireplace before heading out to Le Christine for a romantic dinner a deux.
If you are looking for a “Midnight in Paris” experience, hightail it over to Hotel Le Bristol, the epitome of Parisian luxury. Splurge on the Panoramic Suite (featured in the movie) and sip champagne while taking in the stunning views of the City of Light. With its elegant Louis XV furnishings and impeccable service, Hotel Le Bristol will transport you to the romance of a by-gone era. If you can tear yourself away from the pampered luxuriousness of your room, head to Epicure, Le Bristol’s 3 Michelin star restaurant to embark on a once in a lifetime culinary journey.
When using an Avenue Two Advisor, guests at the Esprit St Germain and Hotel Le Bristol enjoy complimentary breakfasts, upgrades and other unique benefits! Plus, we can arrange private tours, culinary classes, wine tastings, day trips – anything to complete your definition of romance.
Grab your honey, pack a bag and call Grandma to come watch the kids- it’s time to rekindle and reconnect in the most romantic city in the world – Paris (not Virginia) is for lovers!
