Paris has a festive soul for Christmas and the New Year, with lights adorning the main areas of town, and the display cases of
the Grands Magasins, and restaurants preparing special traditional holiday menus, with seasonal produce. Be sure and book early for the better establishments !
After the New Year, normally during the first week of January, start the official sales, where some of the best luxury clothing
in the world comes with a discount of up to 70% ! The sales last about six weeks while, at the end of January is the Spring/Summer haute couture collection (www.modeaparis.com).
For sports fans, one of the greatest races of the years, the Prix d’Amerique takes place on the last Sunday of January.
Then comes February and Valentine’s Day … and we shall be more than happy to help you plan this very special moment. In
Paris, Valentine is all around, isn’t it ?
In the months of February and March Paris will vibrate with the rugby vibe with the Six Nations Tournament, and matches taking place in six countries (England, Italy, France, Ireland, Scotland and Wales).
The last week of February will also feature the Salon de l’Agriculture, the
largest and most important agricultural show in France, with more than one thousand stands. During the second week of February there is also the Retromobile car show, for lovers of unique and vintage vehicles of all types.
March gets really busy and the major event is with no doubt the presentation of the Prêt-à-porter collections with its lot of
defiles which are unfortunatly strictly reserved to professionals.
