Paris at Christmas

We seem to be travelling the globe in the footsteps of our very fortunate and ambitious daughters who study and work overseas. This time it was to attend a graduation ceremony and Paris was looking spectacular in the December sunshine. The nation was cheerful and very welcoming and we had a wonderful few days in this romantic city.

We stayed at the The Grand Pigalle Hotel which was relatively recently refurbished in a prohibition style and I cannot recommend it enough. Very well located we were advised expertly on where to go and what to see and the proprietor informed me that they have a sister hotel opening in London’s Henrietta Street, Convent Garden in February next year so I am very much looking forward to that.

Enjoying Paris we window shopped in Rue saint Honore and had a lovely lunch in Montmartre as well as managing to view the magnificent Eifle Tower and a few cheese and wine boards in charming French cafes.
