It's easy to organise a rural getaway a stone's throw from Paris. From Fontainebleau to the Forest of Senlis, or the Haute Vallée de Chevreuse nature reserve, the Île-de-France is brimming with lush greenery The basilica of Saint-Denis, Versailles or Vaux-le-Vicomte, plus the more discreet Art Deco buildings along the River Marne, are among the most majestic monuments in France and are bound to impress the most ardent history lover. Whether you're looking for a golf break, a spa weekend, or a family getaway, the Île-de-France region is an ideal destination. For anyone looking for a hotel in Paris, les Collectionneurs can also recommend the best addresses for an unforgettable getaway.
Paris will always be a dream destination for travellers. Whether you're travelling as a couple or a family, you'll never tire of exploring the City of Light. As one of the world's most romantic cities, the French capital is universally acknowledged to be an idyllic destination for a romantic break. A wander around Saint-Germain-des-Prés or along the Champs-Élysées, a picnic at the foot of the Eiffel Tower or in the Jardin du Luxembourg, an exhibition at the Grand Palais or the Louvre, an evening out at the Opera Garnier, etc. There's so much to do. To complete your romantic stay, just book a night in a charming hotel in the Île-de-France . Les Collectionneurs offer an excellent selection of character hotels.
In spacious and comfortable rooms with beautiful bed linen and fully equipped bathrooms, travellers will find all modern comforts, flat-screen TV, and wifi. Offering more than just high-class luxury, these establishments have real personality and character. They include handsome period dwellings located within a Haussmann apartment block, or buildings completely refurnished by renowned designers. These tastefully-decorated hotel rooms radiate a warm and cosy atmosphere for a romantic night's stay. In the morning, wake up to a delicious continental or buffet breakfast in the conservatory or on the patio terrace.
From the Arc de Triomphe to the Marais, these hotels make the perfect pied-à-terre for family holidays. Paris is brimming with activities for children, from La Villette's fun-filled science museum to boat rides on the Seine, but parents also need a chance to catch their breath. Most of our establishments offer a babysitting service.
What about getting some fresh air outside the capital? Close to the historic centre of Paris go for a radical change of scenery among the varied landscapes of Normandy or the Oise. Offering as complete a change of scene as the Pays Basque or the Luberon, the meanderings of the Seine reflect a lush, green horizon which has inspired a multitude of artists. Manor houses and medieval abbeys appear around every bend in the road. From the Forest of Rambouillet to the picturesque villages of Picardy, the Île-de-France offers a wide choice of destinations. For lovers of history and heritage, the Palace of Versailles and its gardens are just as worthy of a detour as the Mont-Saint-Michel or the Chateau of the Loire. Whether it's a romantic break or a family getaway, staying in a beautiful hotel is always one of life's great pleasuers.
A relaxing weekend in magical and peaceful surroundings is a real breath of fresh air. Enghien-les-Bains is the only spa resort in the Île-de-France and les Collectionneurs have selected the most luxurious establishments with indoor pool, steam room, sauna and jacuzzi just a stone's throw from Paris. A Californian massage or shiatsu session are an invitation to relax on your own or as a couple. Whether you're taking a spring or autumn break, the heated outdoor pool adds a little extra luxury to your cocooning break. Tennis courts, golf courses, bridle paths and more - there's something here to please all sports lovers. Parisians can relax in serene, rural surroundings without travelling hundreds of kilometres.
A nation of foodies, France has an incredible concentration of top establishments. All over the country, renowned chefs offer regional cuisine, whether it be from Lyon, Burgundy, Auvergne or Brittany, etc. All these specialities can be found in the Paris area where passionate restaurateurs have set their own ground rules for creative regional cuisine.
Fancy a gourmet break without travelling too far? For a real taste experience, there's nothing like sitting down at a table in a restaurant in the Île-de-France. 'Bistronomy' is a new trendwhich is seducing food lovers keen to taste regional cuisine in a more relaxed atmosphere. On sunny days, Sunday brunch on the terrace is a treat not to be missed.
Food-lovers can further their enjoyment by booking a room for a night or two in a hotel-restaurant. To get started, nothing better than a glass of champagne of vintage wine at a hotel bar or by a roaring fire, before starting out on a sensory journey at the establishment's gourmet restaurant.
