The sunny days of summer were brightened still further by the reopening of a place that Parisians had sorely missed for over 15 years: La Samaritaine. This historic department store in the heart of the capital has had a facelift, enhancing the building and offering a new shopping experience. Take advantage of your stay at the Paris France Hotel and drop by… or spend the day there!
A day at La Samaritaine
Of course, La Samaritaine is above all a department store. Eager shoppers converge there to get up to speed with the latest trends in fashion and design, browse the latest collections from luxury labels or prestigious ready-to-wear brands, and discover the work of up-and-coming designers. But that’s not all, because you can also take the opportunity to treat yourself to a pampering session in the largest beauty space in Paris, stroll around the exhibition rooms dedicated to displaying works by contemporary artists, or taste the delicious creations of the starred chef Mathieu Viannay.
The magic of the place
La Samaritaine awaits you in a simply magical setting. Restored and enhanced by 15 years of painstaking work, listed as a Historic Monument, the building alone is well worth a visit. You will find all the familiar elements of Art Nouveau and Art Deco there, including a sublime glass roof letting in plenty of natural light, flights of stairs creating bewitching perspectives, decorative details such as designs inspired by plant life, ornate balusters, golden mosaics and more. To discover all its secrets, you can even join a guided tour!
Take advantage of your visit to our Paris France Hotel to discover all that’s new in the capital this summer. There’s no doubt that the reopening of La Samaritaine was a much-anticipated sensational event. Shopping, gourmet experiences, a haven of wellness; all this and more awaits you a stone's throw from the Pont Neuf and Rue de Rivoli!
