Good Deals & Events

This month, France welcomes us into the New Year with a host of different activities and events to explore and enjoy.

La Traversée De Paris

Sunday 7th January, across the whole of Paris

Throughout the whole of Sunday 7th January, in Paris, you will be able to take a step back in time with the ‘Traversée de Paris’, the occasion on which vintage car owners from all around Paris have the opportunity to make a tour of the city in their vehicles. If you fancy going on a little Sunday walk, it might be fun to follow the route of this traversée, to see how the roads of Paris may have looked fifty years ago.

Les Soldes D’hiver

10th January-20th February, across the whole of France

Starting on the second Wednesday of January, the soldes d’hiver (‘Winter Sales’), much like the Boxing Day sales in England, give shoppers the opportunity to get hold of the clothes or cosmetics or toys that they may not have received at Christmas. So if, after the Christmas period, you are still eager to hit the shops, why not explore what the soldes have to offer?
