Hyde Park Winter Wonderland in London (flatworldsedge)

In the run up to Christmas there are sample sales, holiday markets and pop-up shopping events all around town. London is literally glowing at the moment.

To round out your winter itinerary, make a trip to a restored landmark grand café, admire a curated selection of haute couture by Valentino, and don’t forget to pack your dancing shoes.

Winter blues got you down? Nothing a quick trip to Paris can’t fix!

Seriously though. Winter is winter in Paris too, but when you can while away the days eating delicious pastries and drinking café crème or mulled wine in a cozy café, it’s easy to become fond of the rainy days too.

Haven in Paris is offering up to 25% off in most of our Paris and London apartments, so making the jaunt over doesn’t have to break the bank. Or just use the money you saved shopping the sales – after all, they run until February 14!

Check out all of our February special offers here, or contact us now to let us do the work for you.

PS: and wouldn’t this make the most darling Valentine’s day retreat…
