One of the world’s biggest and most recognised festivals returns to Paris for the second year in a row. Taking place in the Hippodrome de Longchamp horseracing facility which is on the banks of the stunning river seine with some world class acts such as Diplo, Depeche Mode, Kasabian, Travis Scott, Zara Larsson, Gorillaz, Kasabian, Dua Lipa and Stereophonics there is an act for everyone’s music taste.
The festival will be taking place on July 21st and 22nd, so don’t hesitate to secure your dates for our luxury serviced accommodation.
On July 14th, the incredible city of Paris comes together to celebrate the revolution marked by the storming of Bastille!
With the festivities spread across two days there are a wide array of events taking place from the Military display on the Military Parade on the Avenue des Champs-Elysées. Events such as Firemen’s dances leading up to the incredible July 14th firework display.
The July 14th firework display is one of the biggest events in the Parisian calendar, and for 30 minutes the Eiffel tower becomes the focal point of the entire city and one of the worlds biggest and best firework display takes place. This is an event everyone should cross off their bucket list.
Displaying a new selection of Saint Laurent’s most recognisable pieces from his entire back catalogue, this is an excellent opportunity to get to see some of the incredible work of one of the pioneers of the fashion industry as we know it.
The garments currently on display largely are before unseen in this exhibition, and due to preservation purposes are subject to rotation.
This museum is a must visit for those who are inspired by fashion of the late Yves Saint Laurent. YSL and his legacy is seen in every day Parisian culture- no trip to Paris would be complete without experiencing his vision and creative identity.
Are you looking for the best of a chic city trip and a beach holiday? Every July some spots along the seine are transformed in to beaches, where you can enjoy the incredible Parisienne sun on a seaside retreat. Our perfect day out would be some shopping followed by a spot of sunbathing in the afternoon then a relaxing soak using Fraser Suites’ luxury in-room L’Occitane toiletries.
Tour de France
Every year, the world becomes immersed in the riveting Tour De France, where some of the most well-known, and undiscovered cyclists compete alongside each other in teams to be crowned the winner of the Tour De France.
The Avenue des Champs-Elysées is home to the final stage of the race takes place, and every year eager onlookers line the streets to witness a piece of history being made, where you can enjoy food, drinks, shopping and the festivities of the finale of the race.
