Before the madness .........

Next month is going to be busy  -  as December always is.  There is no escaping the demands and pressure of the festive season, and if there is, please tell me how.  But just before we get into the thick of it, we can all take a little breather just as November ends and before December kick-starts the annual Christmas madness.  But I hasten to add, it's a madness I wholeheartedly embrace, simply because it's my favourite time of the year.

But as I said, this period is a bit of a pleasant and sedate pause.  Time to take a break, draw air, rest and commence a gradual warm-up for the more demanding few weeks that will soon be upon us.  Naturally, what comes to mind are the last minute hotel breaks in Paris that may be the perfect counterpoise for the harried individuals who feel that now is the right time to dump the stress and hang loose.

So go for it.  Try this particular promotion for a great value break  -

M&S comes back to Paris

I think there is reason to celebrate - in fact, two good reasons to celebrate. First, we have posted the latest money saving discounts for hotels near the Champs Elysees - as always, bringing you the best offers available for Paris visitors. And second, the great news that after a 10 year absence Marks and Spencers has come back to Paris ...... to be exact, to the Champs Elysees.

To the dismay of many Parisian faithful, a decade ago M&S had made a swift departure from the city in an effort to cut losses in its wider European operations. But that rupture was healed on Thursday with the opening of its spanking new store on France's most famous street, and with the news that even more, bigger stores are on the way following a comprehensive market rethink on its continental sales strategy.

Prices will be about 10 percent dearer at the new Paris store, but who cares if those devotees amongst us can get easier access to our favorite British goods. Like many, I can hardly wait until the bigger, better stocked stores open.

With that positive thought, I'll leave with this great special for cheaper Paris hotels -

The macabre attraction of Pere Lachaise Cemetery

I've just returned from visiting the Pere Lachaise Cemetery with a friend who has come to visit for a few days. As a tourist destination, I suppose it is a bit macabre to visit a city cemetery, but this particular cemetery is famous for the venerable individuals who have found their lasting resting place here.

To name a few .... Edit Piaf, Chopin, Gertrude Stein, Moliere, Bizet and Isadora Duncan. Two of the most notable names whose graves are most often visited are those of the American rock singer Jim Morrison and that of the great wit and literary genius Oscar Wilde. The fame and notoriety they had in life seems to have persisted in death if the endless stream of visitors to their burial sites is anything to go by.

If you are planning to join the thousands that visit, you could consider basing yourself in the nearby Montmarte area, famed for the Sacre Coeur, its atmospheric warren of streets and its resident artists. Our promotion for Montmarte hotels Paris offers is just the ticket if you want to take advantage of some good rates for accommodation in this popular part of the city.

We also have a special promotion at present for cheap hotels at Orly airport. You can see these at the following link -
