For two nights Paris can belong to you thanks to Independent School Parent and hotel Pavillon de la Reine. This is your chance to win a two-night trip to Paris for the family with Pavillon de la Reine. Set just off the Place des Vosges – regarded by many as the most beautiful square in the world – at the heart of Le Marais, the oldest quartier in the city, Pavillon de la Reine is a magical hideaway in the French capital waiting to be discovered and enjoyed.
The hotel dates back to the 17th century, is festooned with pretty ivy and overflowing window boxes, and is hidden away from the world outside by a private courtyard garden, which families walk into through its arched passageway. Each of the 54 rooms is individually designed, while the sitting rooms give plenty of space to relax. Children will love sipping on hot chocolate by the cosy fire, while mum and dad can visit the Honesty Bar for a nightcap – once the children are asleep.
Pavillon de la Reine is a true safe haven and a peaceful retreat – yet close to the action, with plenty to see and do nearby. Families can explore the galleries, shops and cafes of Le Marais, right on the hotel’s doorstep, including the Musée Picasso, showcasing many of the artist’s most famous paintings, and Le Centre Pompidou – a building built inside out, and with a brilliant collection of modern art to explore. Children can make friends – and practise their French – playing on the Place des Vosges with the local enfants or borrow one of the hotel’s bicycles to zoom around on.
The winners will enjoy a two-night stay at Pavillon de la Reine, meaning that there’s plenty of time to explore the city – a complete treasure trove for families. A delicious French breakfast each morning, with fresh pastries, French bread, yummy jam and plenty of fruit will give families plenty of energy for exploring. Plan a day out to climb to the top of Montmartre, to admire the view over the city from the top of the hill and visit the church, Le Sacré-Coeur. Take a boat trip together along the River Seine or get lost in Le Louvre, the largest museum in the world, gazing at incredible art and artefacts – all before returning to the hotel for a welcome night’s sleep where you dream about the City of Light.
