Tired of the same old formal settings when you venture abroad? Try the Idol Hotel. A boutique establishment inspired by groovy and funky sounds from the ’60s through to the ’80s, music fans will feel right at home.

Extremely popular with couples, and offering great value for money, the Idol is situated in one of the French capital’s trendiest districts and is also loved for its comfy beds. You’ll sleep like a log after a hard day pounding the streets of this mesmerising city.


No one makes baguettes and pastries quite like the Parisians. So take full advantage of the city’s superior foodie scene. Make your first stop Pain Pain, famous for a delicious assortment of pastries.

Or if eating out is more your thing, treat yourself by dining at Paris’s hippest new hangout, Les Grands Verres.

With a sleek and modern design, it has already picked up awards for Instragrammable decor.


Mix it up by drinking at Bisou. There is no menu, but the mixologists behind the bar are ready to shake up a concoction just to suit your fancy.

Freshen up the next day by visiting Le Cine Café, where classic films are projected on to the wall.

Its juices of the day are just the thing if you’ve had one too many the night before.


The Gourmet Chocolate Museum is perfect for a family day out.

Looking back more than 4,000 years at the history of cocoa and chocolate via words, pictures and flavours, visitors get the chance to create their own delicious concoctions, too. Yum!

If the weather is favourable, a stroll in Montmartre, home to a secret vineyard, is a must.

Alternatively, if it’s raining and you’re stuck for ideas, try the Cinema Du Pantheon. In service since 1907 and situated in the heart of the Latin quarter, it’s the oldest of numerous intriguing and historic filmhouses across a city of cineastes.
