A chic Parisian break at a stylish boutique in the 9th arrondissement, with breakfast, Eurostar travel and an optional Seine cruise, plus Valentine's Day availability

Home to the Palais Garnier and Grands Magasins, the 9th arrondissement has long lured culture-hounds and shopping fiends to its Belle Epoque boulevards – but there’s more to this grand neighbourhood than opera and chic boutiques (although these are definitely a great place to start). Springing up alongside the signature Haussmannian buildings, a growing crop of hip restaurants and bars are creating a buzz in the emerging ‘SoPi’ neighbourhood (just south of Pigalle metro station).

Elsewhere, foodies should hotfoot it to Rue des Martyrs for artisanal goodies and culture-lovers should take in the area’s excellent theatres and museums, including the art-rich Musée de la Vie Romantique and must-see Musée Grévin. This wax museum is set just off Passage Jouffroy, one of the neighbourhood’s charming, glass-covered passageways lined with shops and food haunts.

And smack-bang in the centre of all the action is Hotel Maxim Opéra, a sleek hotel with stylish interiors fitting for a Parisian boutique, just a short walk from the magnificent opera house and Galeries Lafayette department store, plus a clutch of metro stations to whizz you across the city to its iconic sites. Opt for a dinner cruise for the opportunity to take in some of these sights from the best angle - atop the shimmering waters of the River Seine.

Good to know

Please note that a city tax of €2.53 per person, per night is payable locally. Please be aware that due to flooding, the river cruise is only included for stays after 5th February.
