CHEF'S DINNER

Enjoy an exquisite French dinner prepared by our private chef in his pied-e-terre home.  French meals are meant to be more than just the food, they are a gathering and an appreciation of time spent together. This authentic dinner party will leave us all feeling like true Parisians.

SKETCH + THE LEFT BANK

A local artist will teach us the elements of sketching the city. Guests will receive a sketch diary to create their impressions of Paris.  We will meet in one of the legendary left bank cafes and learn a bit of the history of the area and why it has always been a haven for artists.

MILLINIER

Visit the atelier of a milliner for Chanel and learn how hats are created. Choose material (straw, wool, cotton), shape (fedora, wide brim, panama) and detailing (ribbon, feather, leather) and make our own hat. Croissant, coffee, tea and hot chocolate will be served.  Express your inner Parisian with this unique memento.

FOOD

Only the best food.

Breakfast will be continental at the hotel. For lunch and dinner we have found chefs who are wildly passionate about French cuisine and who will share their love of food.  We will discover why eating and drinking are not just a pastime but a "way of life".
