Get ready for a number of highly exclusive and extraordinary private moments, including a concert, cooking class and cruise down the River Seine.
Day 1 - Paris Arrival
Stay at Hotel Nolinski in Paris
Abstract art meets Parisian chic at the superb Nolinski, an opulent five-star hotel in Paris’s 1st Arrondissement. Modelled by famed architect and designer Jean-Louis Deonit, it impresses both an authentic sense of Paris and creates a haven from the city’s everyday hum. Deco grandeur and marble surfaces meet geometric lines along with a superb spa with hammam. Deonit’s stellar touch extends to all the suites, where modern appointments and touches create a homely air. You come here for the design, to spend one night or many engrossed by Parisian flair. Yet the attentive service and focus on detail makes this five-star hotel as convenient as it is stylish. And it helps you live your own story in Paris.
Day 2 - Food & Music
Paris Cooking Class
So, the three secrets of French cuisine are butter, butter and butter. Right? Well, sort of — but too simplistic.Because each chef has their own secrets. And today one of them will share hers with you. A warm smile, a delightful French accent and a glass of wine will welcome you into her light-filled flat.And in her kitchen you will learn how to combine flavours, textures and colours to make a healthy and unmistakably French dish.
Paris Opera & Private Concert
Follow your insider guide up marble staircases, then under gilt columns and ceilings. She will reveal to you the meaning of each allegorical statue in the façade, each painting that catches your eye inside. She will also tell you how this famous opera house was the inspiration for “The Phantom of the Opera”. And you will float away on the wings of music as the orchestra plays this just for you. Later, you will discover the logistics of organizing an event here, and explore the hidden places where only staff can go. Staff — and phantoms.
Day 3 - Champagne & Sunset Cruising
Champagne Day Trip from Paris
Discover marvels of winemaking and architecture as you travel with an expert guide to Champagne.In this land of rolling hills and ancient winemaking estates, you will learn all about the local soil and grape varieties, and how these are cared for.
