Need help with your Christmas shopping this season? We couldn’t be more thrilled to announce the launch of our very own marketplace, just in time!

After months of hard work and anticipation, the HiP Paris Marketplace is now up and running, loaded with all things français. From French clothing to kitchenware, books, experiences both in-person and online, and even properties for rent and for sale —our marketplace has you covered!

We know that for many of you the ultimate Christmas gift would be a Paris getaway. If a trip is long overdue, we can help with your return to Paris. And we too know just how frustrating it is to confidently plan a vacation while the pandemic continues to change its course almost every day.

Our partners will work with you to find your perfect spot for your next trip whether it is in the next few months or a year from now. And thanks to their flexible cancellation policies, you can book stress free.

That said, if you’re not able to make it back to Paris just yet, our marketplace is here to help and has everything you need to instead bring Paris to you!
