Staying in Paris hotels 'can add to the festive spirit'

Paris has been recommended as the perfect destination to visit for getting into the Christmas spirit.

Tom Hall, replying to a reader's letter in the Guardian, said that there are traditional festive markets throughout the French capital, ranging from huge stalls on the Champs Elysees, to smaller ones at Place Saint-Sulpice and Place des Abbesses.

Referring to other activities which those staying in Paris hotels can do, Mr Hall recommended a visit to Hotel de Ville.

This is home to an ice rink which is "one of the most beautiful locations in the city with a lovely atmosphere".

"The window displays of stores throughout town are striking, but those of the huge department stores on Boulevard Haussmann are especially impressive. Smaller boutiques in the Marais and the streets between Place St Germain de-Pres and the Seine offer lower-key opportunities to pick up last-minute presents," he stated.

Recently, British Airways announced that it was providing more flights to the French capital from January 10th.
