09.00 Have breakfast at the nearest cafe. Fresh juice, coffee and a croissant, which could be better!
11.00 Visit the antiques shop at rue Jean-de-la-Fontaine. Like the cabinet of rarities dedicated to the French design, this boutique presents a stunning selection of decorative items, ornaments, lamps, small furniture and candles under glass bells with fragrances and names such as Ti Amo, a combination of fig and pepper ginger. Ideal for Valentine’s Day or Christmas.
12.30 LUNCH. Is it still possible to find a great place to enjoy traditional French cuisine near the Champs-Élysées? Yes, of course! Restaurant L Artoise on rue d’Artoi, a Paris institution for over 30 years, serves the great French gastronomic classics such as duck breast «à l’orange», veal blanquette and haddock with a creamy tarragon sauce. Try profiteroles, this is one of those classic French dessert.
14.30 Please visit the VIP boutique on place Alphonse-Deville. Sculptor Philippe Audibert, who has collaborated with the likes of Paco Rabanne and Karl Lagerfeld, has branched out into couture jewellery at his very own boutique where silver is crafted to “give life” to superb cuffs, rings, bracelets and necklaces. The ultimate luxury – P. Audibert’s bespoke pieces for VIP customers.
17.00 RELAX AT THE SPA (rue Châteaubriand). This newly renovated space sets itself apart from other Parisian spas by pairing massages of the world with Thai and Japanese teas tastings. Simply choose your treatment, the areas that need the most attention, and your desired intensity. You’ll receive personalised care in a full relax atmosphere.
20.00 DINNER (avenue de Villiers). Pascal Favre d’Anne offers daring pairings such as his Cote Sauvage, a Charolais beef carpaccio served with a lobster broth. Or you can enjoy your lobster and beef separately. Mathilde, Favre d’Anne’s wife and a brilliant sommelier, dreams up colourful cocktails and novel tea blends.
22.00 SIP A COCKTAIL (rue Saint-Jacques). For his first cocktail bar, Christopher Gaglione designed a space that matches wooden beams and Art Deco mirrors with contemporary tropical wallpaper. He also pairs tapas (comté cream minicroques, marinated brochettes) with cocktails such as the excellent Make a Wish (pepper vodka, kiwi, cucumber and elderfl ower).
23.00-03.00 Dance in one of the nightclubs in Paris!
