Easter in Paris
11 January 2018
Enjoy a Five-Star Spring Break at Hotel Balzac
Soft warm days, flower-filled parks, verdant boulevards and sun-kissed café terraces are just a few of the reasons why Paris in spring is like no other city in the world. But it’s not just nature that’s in on the act. The season also marks the return of a jam-packed events calendar to the capital, as Easter is celebrated across fun-filled family days, eye-opening art exhibitions and enthralling evenings of live entertainment! All of which (and more) awaits your discovery during a five-star stay at Hotel Balzac this Easter.
Easter Concerts at La Sainte Chapelle
30th March – 2nd April 2018
By day (particularly in spring) this gem in Paris’ Gothic crown is at its dazzling best, when all 1,113 of the spectacular stained-glass windows at La Sainte Chapelle make full use of the sun to project a kaleidoscope of colour onto its intricate 13th century interiors.
However, it is of an evening when the true majesty of this iconic venue can be fully appreciated, when celebrated string, woodwind, percussion and brass performers from across the continent will immerse you in the majestic sounds of Mozart, Haydn and Bach, across four days of stunning concerts.
There truly is no better way to experience classical music in Paris this Easter, with the magical evenings only heightened by the soaring Gothic architecture and the singular acoustics of the ancient chapel. So don’t miss out! Advanced booking is also recommended to avoid any disappointment.
Easter Egg Hunt at the Parc André Citroën
1st April – 2nd April 2018
For kids (and big kids!) nothing says Easter quite like embarking on an epic Easter Egg Hunt; and as far as chocolate-fuelled expeditions go, the offering at Parc André Citroën is about as good as they come.
This is largely in part something to do with the 40,000 Easter Eggs which will be scattered around the vast green space of Parc André Citroën. But also for the accompanying Village of Activities, which is to be filled with all sorts of Easter inspired events and workshops, suitable for children of all ages.
What’s more, the event has once again been organised courtesy of the Paris Federation of French Secours Populaire - a brilliant charity dedicated to fighting poverty and discrimination in public life, so all funds raised by the occasion will be going to a more than worthy cause!
Pierre Gagnaire at Hotel Balzac
Of course, Easter is a time of rebirth and renewal. But even since the days of the Saxons, the occasion has been celebrated with days of indulgence, culminating with a huge feast to honour the pagan goddess Eastre.
Hence, it is only fitting you enjoy your Easter in similar fashion; and nowhere in the capital is indulgence more at one’s disposal than with Pierre Gagnaire and his world-famous, three Michelin-starred restaurant at Hotel Balzac.
Words to describe the exquisiteness of Gagnaire’s French-fusion cuisine are few and far between, so you’ll simply have to book a table and sample it for yourself; and do so soon to avoid disappointment! But in the meantime, you can sneak a peek at his pioneering menu here.
