SUMMER IN PARIS - YOUR GUIDE TO A CHIC & EFFORTLESS ESCAPE TO THE CITY OF LIGHTS
I

t's said that life imitates art, and no place paints a prettier picture than the City of Light. In Paris, every street has a compelling story to tell... stories rich with history, culture, and effortless style. Each visit is an opportunity for endless exploration and inspiration, and I can't wait to help you experience this city — reopening June 9th for travelers with proof of a negative PCR test result — with privileged access to special perks and amenities. Below I've paired two spectacular Parisian hotels (that are Sharecare VERIFIED™) with two exclusive, customizable experiences to have in and around the city. Get in touch to plan your effortless escape!

WHERE TO STAY: HÔTEL DE CRILLON, A ROSEWOOD HOTEL

INDULGE IN PARISIAN SPLENDOR AND SOPHISTICATION

An illustrious landmark overlooking the Place de la Concorde, Hôtel de Crillon is a celebration of the spirit of Paris and French art de vivre — timeless and unabashedly elegant. Sink into the warmth and refinement of stylish guest rooms and suites that effortlessly blend 18th-century heritage and contemporary creature comforts. This is a place you'll wake up feeling like royalty — no surprise, considering this was where Marie Antoinette once took piano lessons.

Dining options include L’Ecrin (Paris's best-kept secret), the distinctive Brasserie d’Aumont, Jardin d’Hiver, and the hotel’s favored rendezvous spot, Les Ambassadeurs. Be sure to pay a visit to the stunning gilded bar, where you can sip champagne (there are more than 200 kinds!) under the artful hand-painted ceiling.

 

WHAT TO EXPERIENCE IF YOU HAVE AN APPETITE FOR ADVENTURE

SPEND A DELICIOUS DAY ON A CITYWIDE CULINARY SCAVENGER HUNT!

If you have a love of food and fine vintages (that is, vintage cars and wines), and are up for a unique and delicious adventure, then a fully customizable citywide culinary scavenger hunt is just for you! Cruise around Paris in a vintage sports car of your choosing in pursuit of the finest ingredients in the region. While en route, you'll meet culinary experts and learn the history and significance of French cuisine. See a working windmill dating hundreds of years that is still used to make flour for delicious bread. Visit a French cheese farm for a tasting and roll up your sleeves for an opportunity to milk the cows. Navigate your stylish sports car to the Versailles vegetable garden for your pick of the freshest produce and enjoy an idyllic picnic before heading to the countryside for a wine tasting and pairing experience.

Last but certainly not least, a chauffeur will escort you to a famous castle (specially open after hours) where you will be greeted by your own private chef who will teach you how to prepare a traditional French meal with the ingredients you gathered throughout the day. Relax and enjoy a slow, delectable meal before returning to your hotel at the end of your perfectly satisfying day.

WHERE TO STAY: THE PENINSULA PARIS

CELEBRATE THE FRENCH ART OF CHIC LIVING

Perfectly situated at 19 Avenue Kléber, The Peninsula is located in the heart of Paris within walking distance of some of the world’s most famous monuments, museums and luxury shopping districts. The Peninsula houses 200 rooms, including 86 spacious suites. Inspired by haute couture, the themed suites are veritable showcases of French heritage. After a decadent gourmet breakfast followed by a complimentary city tour, utilize your resort credit at the hotel spa (the largest in Paris) or the Peninsula's Michelin-starred French restaurant overlooking the Eiffel Tower. Take a signature night cap up to the rooftop terrace for panoramic views of the city's twinkling lights as you reflect on yet another dreamy day in Paris.

 

WHAT TO EXPERIENCE IF YOU LOVE FASHION & DESIGN

SPEND A STYLISH DAY EXPLORING PARIS' FASHION HISTORY

No trip to Paris would be complete without a day of pampering and indulgence — and if you are someone who appreciates fashion and art, this day is for you. A French proverb proclaims n'est pas français — which means nothing is impossible, and that holds true for this fully customizable day of fashionable exploration. After your gourmet breakfast, you'll receive a personalized beauty session in your hotel room with a professional makeup artist and hair stylist. When you are ready to head out for your fabulous day, a chauffeur and fashion expert will escort you to a couture house, where you'll learn about the history of fashion in Paris and the iconic figures that shaped its influence. Visit luxury boutiques and Palais Royal — where ready-to-wear and haute couture were born and continue to thrive.

After a delectable lunch, you’ll meet one of the city's top up-and-coming contemporary jewelry artists who will assist you with creating your own custom piece. You'll also have the option of creating your own signature scent at a private perfume workshop. Finish the day at Galliera Museum, open after-hours just for you. Enjoy refreshments and canapés while viewing sketches from famous designers and art which served as inspiration for iconic collections.
