Where to enjoy a break: Angelina’s – 226 Rue de Rivoli
If you’re looking for a break in between exploring the city, or to try out the best hot chocolate you’ve ever tasted (yes, ever!), the Angelina’s is the place for you! Me and the girls stopped off for a hot chocolate and some cake after being recommended Angelina’s by so many people and it honestly didn’t disappoint! It was super beautiful inside, so whether you visit to sit in and dine or grab some macaroons on the go, I highly recommend making a trip (and wearing a loose waistband!).
Where to visit: Le Palais Royale – 8 Rue de Montpensier, 75001
You’ve probably spotted the Palais Royale in any bloggers pictures that has visited Paris, it’s super dreamy for photographs as the humbug striped plinths and lined tree walkways make for a wonderful #OOTD snap! Even if you’re not heading there to snap some shots, I’d highly recommend a walk through the grounds as it’s so pretty, a great place to stop off and rest your feet whilst tucking into your macaroons from Angelina’s!
Where to get pampered: Anne Semonin – 2 rue des Petits Champs – 75002
When I first arrived in Paris I checked my bags into my hotel then headed straight to Anne Semonin for a made to measure facial at their Atelier De Beaute in central Paris. I’m a huge fan of Anne Semonin skincare and it’s a brand that I’m familiar with (their Balancing Intensive Complex always puts my skin back on the straight and narrow if i’m suffering from breakouts!).
The hour long facial was so incredibly relaxing (pretty sure I may have fallen asleep!), and my skin was literally glowing when I left. I didn’t apply any makeup after as I wanted to let the products have the maximum effect on my skin! This phyto-aromatic treatment combines serums, masks and specially selected mineral complexes to meet the specific needs of your skin and is the perfect pamper treatment for a little relaxation on your trip!
Where to stay: Holiday Inn Paris Opera – 30-32 Boulevard Poissonniere, 75009
If you’re looking for an affordable place to stay that’s central in Paris, then look no further as the Holiday Inn Paris Opera is the place for you! If you’re travelling by Eurostar then the hotel is less than 10 minutes from Gare du Nord which is perfect and it’s less then 15 minutes away from the Champs Elysee, Notre Dame and the Louvre!
The average nightly rate is €134 including breakfast which is great for a couple of days break, the rooms are spacious and comfortable and the location is spot on. I’d highly recommend looking into booking this hotel if you’re heading to paris as it was a great all-rounder for an affordable price!
