Even though the euphoria of the festive season quickly subsides after January 1st, the soldes d’hiver (winter sales) quickly breathe new life into the shopping streets of Paris. Having a break at the Hotel Albe Saint-Michel between January 11thand February 7th will allow you to take advantage of great deals and significant discounts. What’s more, our district is a hub of Parisian shopping!
The Latin Quarter is at the heart of trends
Just step out of the door of our hotel and you can start your shopping spree. Indeed, the entire Latin Quarter, and the Boulevard Saint-Germain in particular is home to many trendsetting fashion and haute couture brands. In a few steps, you can go from Karl Lagerfeld to Sonia Rykiel, from Ralph Lauren to Louis Vuitton, from The Kooples to Burberry. Of course, the neighbourhood also has a wonderful selection of bookstores, antique shops and art galleries to browse, too.
It wouldn’t be the sales without the department stores
A Parisian specialty, department stores are a must during the sales. You will find a very wide choice of renowned fashion and design brands, as well as cosmetics and leather goods. And the sales period is an opportunity to land some major bargains. You have the choice of staying on the Left Bank and going to the Bon Marché or crossing the Seine to discover the newly reopened La Samaritaine. And, in about ten minutes via Metro, the essential Printemps Haussmann and Galeries Lafayette are waiting for you.
Everyone has their own way of taking advantage of the sales. Whether you are more of a random window shopper or a well-organised shopping spree specialist, Paris is a real delight for shopping enthusiasts. By staying at the Hotel Albe Saint-Michel, you will be at the heart of all the retail action.
