Christmas in Paris 2013 is always thrilling, and is the perfect time to book a stay at the charming Hotel Opera Lafayette. Make this Christmas special with a trip to see the famous lights on the Champs des Elysees or the fabulous window displays in the department stores of Boulevard Haussmann, just a few minutes from the hotel.
Treat yourself, or family and friends to a festive break in the beautiful City of Lights - a name that is even more appropriate at this time of year. Each neighbourhood is a feast of light and colour. The magnificent Champs Elysées is illuminated along its entire length, and the 200 famous plane trees are adorned with garlands of red, white and blue LED lights to create a sensational seasonal display.
The delightful Christmas market sees the most beautiful street in Paris transformed into a winter wonderland of quaint wooden chalets. Pick up decorations for your tree, gifts and gourmet treats, or just enjoy a warming mulled wine in the vibrant Champs Elysees. Younger members of the family will be thrilled to meet Santa when he visits the market each day.
The chic department stores of Boulevard Haussmann embrace the festive spirit in style. The twinkling lights that decorate the facade of Galeries Lafayette have been designed by Valerio Festi. They are certain to enchant shoppers, and the fabulous window displays here, and at Printemps, are not to be missed. Pick up wonderful gifts and elegant homeware for your festive table, or just enjoy browsing high street names and exclusive boutiques.
Hotel Opera Lafayette enjoys a privileged position, just 15 minutes’ walk from Boulevard Haussmann, and close to all of the city's sites and attractions by taxi or Metro. Set yourself up with a delicious buffet breakfast before a busy day, or relax in our comfortable rooms. Our friendly and approachable staff are always ready to lend a helping hand with packages, or to assist with directions or recommendations.
