As the holidays approach, you’ve decided you’re going to spend Christmas in Paris! And choosing a hotel is particularly important at this time of year. Indeed, while many places in the French capital are closing their doors and most Parisians are deserting the city, it is essential to find a warm address for the end of December! And we have an idea of the hotel that would suit you… Spending Christmas in Paris: choosing a -hotel, the Hotel des Marronniers
Christmas lights in Paris
Paris is simply magical during the holiday season! Strolling through the narrow streets of the French capital, under the twinkling lights, is pure pleasure. From November, streets and squares will be adorned with their costume of light until the beginning of January. Places not to be missed:
- The Avenue des Champs Elysées, the most beautiful avenue, and the avenue Montaigne, unmissable
- The Place Vendôme
- The rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré
- The Village Royal
- The City hall forecourt
- Bercy Village
- The Light Festival in the Jardin des Plantes
You will need more than a weekend for Christmas lights !
Christmas shop windows
What would the magic of Christmas be without the magic of Christmas windows. The shops on rue Saint-Honoré compete in originality. Cartier, for example, has a nice surprise in store for us every year with a sumptuous scenography.
The Lafayette Galleries and Printemps Haussmann unveil their windows every year during the illuminations. Young and older open their eyes wide to the incredible and magical scenery. Little puppets come alive to music on a given theme and we stroll cheerfully in the middle of the windows the beats and amazed.
Christmas markets in Paris
Many Christmas markets flourish in the city. Good smells of mulled wine, gingerbread, and gourmet notes, combined with an enchanted atmosphere and artistic craftsmanship! The forecourts of the Paris City Hall and Notre-Dame host beautiful Christmas markets every year. Also note:
- The Christmas town of Saint-Germain-des-Prés
- The Christmas market of the Eiffel Tower
- The Magic of Christmas in Tuileries Garden
- The Christmas Market at la Défense
Christmas and New Year’s Eve in Paris
If you are thinking of coming to spend Christmas or New Year in Paris, look no further. Saint-Germain-des-Prés is perfect for the occasion, and so is the Hotel des Marronniers.
Located in the heart of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, the Hotel des Marronniers offers very quiet rooms in this very lively district. You will be able to walk around the Christmas market of Saint-Germain, just behind the church of the same name, have a glass of mulled wine, discover the windows of the department stores, then return to rest in the calm of the chestnut trees.
Enjoying a good hot chocolate in our veranda in the very festive atmosphere that we set up every year is a great way to apprehend this festive period! Each year, Judith, our reception manager, carefully decorates several trees! A large Christmas tree culminates in front of the reception, a small one brings joy to our pretty vaulted lounge in the basement, two fir trees welcome our guests just at the entrance and a last one takes the temperature in the hotel garden
Christmas atmosphere at the Hotel des Marronniers
In past years, we invited a new guest, René, and our customers really appreciated him! You will see that friendliness never stops at the Hôtel des Marronniers. All year round, good humor and human warmth are found around our team!
In addition to the location, the garden and the atmosphere, you can stay at the Hotel des Marronniers alone, as a couple, with friends or family, since we offer rooms for 1 to 4 people. With children, you can also easily get to Disneyland Paris from the 6th arrondissement, or as a couple, we will be able to welcome you during the holidays.
