ESCAPE LONDON, VISIT EUROPE – Looking for a place to stay in Paris?

It’s August, it’s a bank holiday, so, in keeping with Great British tradition, it might be raining all weekend. But poor weather shouldn’t be something you’d risk before fall officially begins. What not opting for the city of lights, just a few hours away where you could add such a perfect topping to your Parisian summer sundae with a nice program and a lovely place for your stay. Here are some suggestions of what to do in Paris between August 29th and 31st.

Up for a gig

Looking for a fun family exhibit

The ‘Aardman: l’art qui prend forme’ exhibition at Paris’s Art Ludique museum has already been qualified as being the most elaborate and varied exhibitions the Art Ludique museum has hosted so far. It gives a glimpse into the workings of Peter Lord, David Sproxton and Nick Park that formed the Aardman studio best known for ‘Wallace and Gromit’, ‘Chicken Run’ and ‘Shaun the Sheep’. The whole family will just love it.

         Feeling at home while being on vacation

Going for the romantic twist

Most parks and gardens in Paris are usually closed by 8:30 in the evening… except from Thursday to Saturday until the end of August! Parc Monceau (8th arrondissement), Parc Montsouris (14th arrondissement), Parc André-Citroën (15th arrondissement) and Parc des Buttes-Chaumont (19th arrondissement) will be left open all night and picnics (but no alcohol) are welcome. Such a romantic way to seize the day!

Surprising her with that lovely boutique hotel

Rent Paris recommends a hip boutique hotel with a stunning view on Paris’s roofs and located in the heart of the Marais. This little urban oasis has been constructed in 2011 and their contemporary and soundproof rooms will host your romantic stay all along the year.
