Best Time to Visit

Paris is a year-round destination; time your trip with the things that interest you most. For warm, sunny days perfect for exploring outdoor attractions, aim for July and August (though be prepared for crowds).  Shoulder seasons (April-June and September-October) offer pleasant weather, fewer visitors, and stunning landscapes. Spring brings with it the beautiful bloom of gardens, while fall reveals the beauty of grape harvest. Bordeaux is best enjoyed in the warmer or milder weather, allowing you to fully appreciate the vineyards.

Craving a peaceful escape? Consider the off-season (November-March) for charming towns minus the throngs, but remember some businesses may have reduced hours.


Arrive in Paris

The setting for many a timeless story, Paris is an equal parts fashion, architecture, arts, and cuisine.  Stay at the luxury Hôtel Madame Rêve, your own private oasis tucked into the hustle and bustle of the city.

Follow your heart’s desires as you stroll the charming cobblestone streets, sit and sip coffee at a streetside café, and enjoy delectable baked goods from a local boulangerie. Enjoy a guided tour of the city where you can learn the history behind all of Paris’ great monuments, such as the Notre Dame Cathedral, Eiffel tower, even walking the iconic Champs Élysées to the glorious Arc de Triomphe.

Each arrondissement has something unique to offer, from the historic passageways of the deuxième to the luxury shopping of the huitième.
