When we say Versailles, we think Castle…
True, it is a must!
But you could also discover many other things in Versailles:
- The Royal Fireworks
- The Gardens and Fountains Show
- The Operas and Ballets
Don’t hesitate to check their website (www.chateauversailles-spectacles.fr) for more information, and enjoy all the magic of Versailles…
If – like us – you are fond of pastries, then you can’t miss L’Atelier des Gâteaux (the Pastries Workshop): it’s just across the street!
It’s an unusual tea room as you can also take lessons there…At this time of the year, it would be a shame not to take advantage of Audrey’s advices to prepare all kind of sweet cakes! Macaroon, cupcake, cheesecake…
More info on their blog (in french!) : L’Atelier des Gâteaux
PS: Oh, one last thing: if you want us to volunteer to taste your creations, it will be with pleasure!
Wonderful exhibition on Cézanne at the Luxembourg Museum (Musée du Luxembourg).
10 minutes walk from the hotel only… would be a shame to miss it!

Be careful, this ends on Feb. 26th!
During Christmas period, there are not only the windows and presents…
You can also check the ice-rinks, specially installed for the occasion, and discover Paris in another way.
We recommend 2 of them:
- The Hotel de Ville’s Ice-rink: very reasonable (they rent you the blades for 5€), for the big kids (1.635 m²) as for the smaller ones (258 m²)… Open from noon to 10pm everyday, and from 9am to 10pm on saturday, sunday, and bank holidays… More info on www.paris.fr. From Dec. 16th to March 4th. 1, place de l’Hotel de Ville – Metro stop Hotel de Ville.
- The Eiffel Tower Ice-rink: unusual, isn’t it? to skate 57m above the ground with the Eiffel Tower just over your head! From 10.30am to 10.30pm, and until Jan. 31st. Champs de Mars – Metro stop Bir Hakeim. To visit the website: www.tour-eiffel.fr
Good afternoon & welcome!
We will try, in this gazette, to keep you informed about many things: the hotel novelties, the Parisian points of interest, the hotel’s area things to see & to do… In one word, everything which will be useful for your stay at the hotel de Sèvres.
