A modern-meets-classic Paris escape to a small yet chic hotel near the Place de la Bastille, with Eurostar travel, a Seine river cruise and priority access to the Picasso Museum

Jet off on a romantic Parisian escape to the Grand Hotel Français, right in the centre of the lively city of love. This six-storey hotel opened its doors in 1889 and sits on Place de la Nation, one of the city’s major crossroads. Close to the bustling Bastille area and the picturesque Père Lachaise district, there will be hordes of elegant boutiques and charming shaded café terraces to explore.

Each morning you can indulge in a delectable and traditional French breakfast, with pains au chocolat and baguettes. Rent a moped to speed past the Champs-Élysées and Notre Dame - a popular example of French Gothic architecture - before enjoying an evening ballet performance at Opéra Bastille. Grand Hotel Français was unsurprisingly awarded a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

As part of your Parisian sojourn, you'll get to enjoy a leisurely hour-long Seine river cruise, as well as seek out cultural pursuits with priority access to the Picasso Museum (known locally as Musée Picasso); located in the Marais district, this art gallery showcases an extensive collection of works by the Spanish artist, within an elegant and beautifully preserved space.
