Crowne Plaza Paris Republique – 3 Nights
Mercure Lyon Centre Chateau Perrache - 2 nights
Housed in a listed Art Nouveau building, the hotel is perfectly located, less than 200 metres from the Christmas Markets in Place Carnot. Renovated in 2015, the hotel blends old style elegance with stylish and contemporary furnishings.
Aux Vieux Moulin, Megeve - 4 nights
Location, location! Set within 200 metres of the church square and the absolute heart of Megève, your cosy hotel has that distinct Alpine chalet style feel. The modern bar and restaurant harmonise beautifully with the more traditional wooden floors and comfy arm chairs and tables in the lounge area.
This tour was a great pace with organised excursions as well as down time. This suited us well and our experiences in the places we visited for the first time which allowed us to take advantage of getting a feel for the local sites.
Samantha & Aaron
I was a little hesitant about going alone, but everyone on the tour made me feel so welcome and the group as a whole bonded so well that I felt most included. I loved the time in Paris - such a beautiful city and the time at the Christmas Markets provided me with some very attractive ornaments and gifts. The time spent in Megeve with the snowy background was wonderful and will remain in my memory for years to come.
Thank you for a wonderful tour.
