This 8-night vacation combines the charm and majesty of two beautiful French country chateaux, with the culture, glamour and incredible sights of Paris!

Imagine large expanses of totally tranquil woodland surrounding a château with a moat, stone bridges, turrets and facades enlivened with niches, lacy balconies and sculptures – this is your first stop, at the Chateau d’Esclimont. You'll pick up your 6-day rental car at the airport upon arrival in Paris, and make your way to this 4-star gem for the next three nights (just a one-hour scenic drive from the airport).  This former dwelling of the La Rochefoucauld family is a jewel of the Renaissance and puts you within easy reach of many area attractions, including Versailles, the Cathedral of Chartres (registered on the UNESCO World Heritage List), and of course Paris.  

The next stop on your journey is the Chateau de Gilly, the former residence of the Cistercian Monks - located at the heart of the finest wine producing area in Burgundy, between Dijon and Beaune. You will spend your next three nights in this magnificent hotel, which provides the luxury of a large hotel with the intimacy of a small inn.  All rooms have a garden view along with other fine features such as handcrafted wood paneling, exquisite wall coverings, and some even have stone fireplaces!  In the 14th century wine cellar is the Le Clos Prieur restaurant; featuring vaulted ceiling supported by stone pillars that add to the subtle ambiance.  The cuisine, matched perfectly with regional wines, provides a memorable gastronomic experience not to be forgotten. 

You'll then make your way back to Paris to spend your last few days absorbing the history, culture and ‘joie de vivre’ of this incredible European capital (upon arrival in Paris, you will return your rental car at a downtown location near your hotel). Enjoy the city's renowned museums, fashionable shops, epicurean delights and iconic sights while staying at the Hotel Aviatic Saint Germain - a highly unique Left Bank boutique hotel with a romantic atmosphere,  an elegant designer edge and all the authentic charm of a fine Parisian home.

RECOMMENDED ACTIVITIES:

Known as the "City of Lights," Paris is one of the most romantic, enchanting cities in the world, so it's not surprising it's also the world's number one tourist destination. Visit famous attractions such as the Eiffel Tower or Notre Dame, wander through the most famous museum in the world (the Louvre), stroll the Champs Elysees, shop for Parisian fashion or just spend some time sitting in a charming sidewalk café. A large part of Paris, including the River Seine, has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Eiffel Tower: The most recognizable symbol of France – and one of the most famous structures in the world – is this 1,063-foot-tall iron lattice tower on the Champ de Mars. Built in 1889 for a World's Fair, the tower has three levels for visitors with restaurants and excellent viewpoints.
 
Notre Dame de Paris: Considered one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture in France (and Europe), this Catholic cathedral dates from 1163. It is most noteworthy for its five bells, including the great Emmanuel, located in the South Tower and weighing just over 13 tons. The cathedral was the inspiration for Victor Hugo's famous novel "The Hunchback of Notre-Dame."
 
Arc de Triomphe: In the middle of the busiest traffic circle in Paris is this massive and much photographed Roman arch, which was built to honor those who fought and died for France in the French Revolutionary and the Napoleonic Wars. Underneath lies the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier from World War I.
 
Centre Georges Pompidou: Built in the 1970s, and a high tech architecture curiosity, the Centre Georges Pompidou houses a vast library and a center for music and acoustic research, but the star attraction here is the Musée National d"art Moderne, which holds some 40,000 works of 20th- and 21st-century art. The center is also home to many temporary exhibits.
 
Musée du Louvre: The world's largest palace and the most visited museum in the world is home to one of the greatest art collections of all time. Pass through the ultramodern (and ultra controversial) 69-foot glass pyramid to get your tickets, and then you'll have access to more than 35,000 treasures, including the Mona Lisa.
 
Musée d’Orsay: Across from the Louvre on the left bank of the Seine, an old Beaux-Arts rail station has been converted into one of the world's great museums Some 80 galleries contain furniture, photographs, architectural models and other art objects, plus the largest collection of impressionist and post-impressionist paintings in the world. Here's where you'll find Monet, et al.
 
Basilique du Sacré-Cœur: The white-domed Basilica of the Sacred Heart is located on the highest point in the city, the summit of Montmartre hill. The interior is decorated with mosaics and the stained glass windows, which were shattered during the struggle for Paris in 1944, have all been restored. Many artists have worked in the surrounding community of Montmartre, including Dalí, Monet, Picasso and van Gogh.
 
Sainte-Chapelle: Visit this tiny, remarkable chapel when the sun is shining through the stained class and you'll see why countless writers have called it a "jewel box." The last surviving structure of what was a royal palace in the heart of the city, the chapel was commissioned by King Louis IX in the 13th century to hold his collection of Passion Relics.
 
Parc de la Villette: This popular city park has a lake, gardens, and plenty of space for outdoor activities. On the periphery of the park lies the Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie, the largest science museum in Europe.
 
Monet's Garden at Giverny: Monet's home and the garden that was the subject of his Water Lillies series is now a popular tourist attraction, particularly in the summer when the flowers are in bloom. Fittingly, in the nearby village of Giverny is an Impressionist art museum.
 
Musée National du Château de Fontainebleau: About 35 miles from the center of Paris is Fontainebleau, a town favored as a weekend getaway for Parisians. Of most interest to tourists is the 16th-century royal chateau that was loved by Napoleon and now contains restored period rooms and many treasured paintings.
 
Disneyland Paris: In the eastern suburbs of the city is Disneyland Paris, a Euro Disney-owned attraction that features two theme parks: Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios Park. It's Europe's most visited tourist attraction.
