Shopping and illuminations: your festive season in Paris

Shopping and illuminations: your festive season in Paris

Published on December 1, 2023 in Paris "OUT"

Located close to the Place d'Italie, the C.O.Q. Hotel offers you a relaxing and offbeat experience in the heart of an exciting neighbourhood. At holiday time, the magic of Christmas is very much a part of the ambiance. Here are some great ideas that the C.O.Q Hotel team is happy to share with you. 


Fill your Santa sack 

The Christmas markets of Paris are a must as much for their warm atmosphere as for the shopping options they offer. Not far from the C.O.Q. Hotel you can discover a particularly original one: the Marché de Noël Africain (African Christmas Market). Rich in colours and fragrances, its 700 m² of market space showcase a fabulous range of fabrics, accessories, clothing, delicacies and much more. Do you prefer shopping centres? Cross the Seine and in 20 minutes you can experience the wonderful Bercy Village, the old Paris wine market that has been turned into a pedestrian street lined with shops and cafes. Beautifully illuminated, it is ideal for Christmas shopping.


Paris illuminated

Adorned with thousands of LEDs, Paris sparkles during December nights. However, each neighbourhood has its own character. The gleaming fir trees of the Place Vendôme compete with the luminous bear of the Rue Royale and the sparkling bubbles of the Rue des Martyrs. The Avenue Montaigne, which forms one side of the Golden Triangle, focuses on elegance and refinement, just like the Champs-Élysées, which remains a must. Finally, less than ten minutes by Metro from the C.O.Q. Hotel, don’t miss the magnificent Jungle in the Process of Illumination in the Jardin des Plantes. This trail of light installations is enchanting for young and old alike. 

The C.O.Q. Hotel welcomes you during the Christmas holidays with the same passion as during the rest of the year. Discover a wealth of shopping options in our neighbourhood and the most beautiful illuminations of Paris…
