Paris is the number one destination when it comes to honeymooning and romantic trips. A walk on Pont des Arts and a stroll down the Champs-Elysees might be what attracts thousands each year, but it’s certainly not the only way to spend a love-filled getaway à la Parisienne.
Instead, have a drink by Hotel Grand Amour’s fireplace, grab a café at Shakespeare & Co, and enjoy dinner in a secret courtyard garden.
Although it has a romantic name, there is nothing cheesy about Hotel Grand Amour. The retro rooms, hip bar and bohemian atmosphere make this super chic ‘love hotel’ the perfect nest for those seeking a tender getaway without the cringe.
A cocktail bar inspired by the American Prohibition, this modern speakeasy welcomes those who want to enjoy classic drinks or innovative creations, whilst staying away from prying eyes…
A hidden gem in the busy 17th arrondissement, Le Bistrot des Dames, the restaurant at the Eldorado Hotel, offers French and Italian specialties in a secret garden, open during both summer and winter.
Feel free to wander around the tiny alleys, listen to strangers playing the piano and have a slice of Lemon Pie at the café right next to the shop, overlooking Notre Dame and the Seine.
Le Derriere (‘behind’, in English) welcomes locals and tourists with its warm décor inspired by a bohemian Parisian apartment. Pick either the living-room, the bedroom or the kitchen to enjoy an exquisite lobster whilst cozying up to your loved one on the comfy sofas.
