This exclusive package offers the ultimate Paris and Champagne experience. Based in a luxurious 5* hotel just a stone’s throw away from the Famous Champs-Elysées Avenue, you will start your stay in true style with a Michelin-starred dinner on the second floor of the Eiffel Tower on the first evening. Delight in a six course tasting dinner with drinks whilst admiring stunning views of Paris. Transfers will be arranged to escort you between the hotel and restaurant.
On the morning of day two, you will be met at the hotel by a chauffeured vehicle, which will accompany you throughout the day on a private basis in the Champagne region. During the course of the day you will visit a boutique Champagne House for a full tour of their estate and cellars, with tastings of at least three Champagnes. You will also be taken to the beautiful hilltop village of Hautvillers, where Dom Pérignon lived and is buried. Here, you will enjoy a comparative tasting session of three single varietal Champagnes, accompanied by a platter of gourmet delicacies and local cheeses.
As part of your day, you will be welcomed as the guest of a prestigious Champagne House for a full tour of the estate followed by a tasting of their Champagne. There are several options subject to your preference and availabilities, including Mercier, Lanson, GH Mumm, Pommery, Ruinart, Taittinger, Moët & Chandon and Veuve Clicquot. Please note that a number of the more exclusive estates do not tend to receive visitors at weekends and some of them do not receive visitors at all. We would be pleased to discuss the various options with you and contact the individual estates accordingly.
For those who opt for the four day/three night break, you will be taken on a half day private guided tour of the iconic Louvre museum. You will be picked up at the hotel by a specialist driver / guide who will accompany you throughout the morning, sharing his impeccable knowledge of the beautiful city of lights as well as of French History and culture. Your guide will take you to the Louvre, where you will be able to enter with pre-booked skip the line tickets. He/she will then guide you through the museum to see the most iconic pieces of art hidden in this former Royal Palace and tell you all the secrets of the building. You will be taken back to your hotel at the end of the tour.
In the late afternoon, we will arrange a cheese and wine tasting for you. You will taste three great wines paired with some premium French cheeses. Transport has not been included for this activity but please feel free to let us know if you would like us to arrange transfers for you.
To end your stay in style, a delicious three course dinner washed down with a bottle of Champagne per couple will be served at a traditional French Cabaret. The fabulous after-dinner show will amaze you, with extravagant costumes, and plenty of feathers and sparkles!
