Getaways from Paris

Though you can never get your fill of the City of Lights and its diverse attractions, do schedule some time in your Parisian agenda for a variety of exciting "Made in France" memories beyond Paris!

A Royal Encounter in Northern France

Picturesque Picardy invites you to visit its magnificent Domaine de Chantilly- that is home to the statuesque Château de Chantilly, the Condé Museum and the Grand Stables - makes for a day well spent. Do not forget to try the delectable Chantilly cream that finds global renown. Picardy invites you for a unique experience - pairing champagne with Indian food in the cellars of Champagne Pannier. If with the family, plan a rendezvous with the Gauls, Asterix, Obelix and their coterie at the Parc Astérix!

A Spirited Encounter in Champagne-Ardenne

The lure of the bubby brings you to the region of Champagne Ardenne - home to the King of Wines - champagne. The region basks under global recognition as its hillsides, houses and cellars now bear the UNESCO World Heritage classification. Visits of renowned champagne cellars such as Moet et Chandon, Veuve Clicquot, Taittinger, Pommery wait to be discovered. Reims tempts you with its architectural marvels and its melt in the mouth pink biscuits, while Epernay introduces you to its vineyards and Troyes takes you closer to Essoyes - the home of the celebrated artist Renoir.

Snapshots from Châteaux Country - Loire Valley

The picturesque Loire Valley promises many an elegant encounter. Plan a rendezvous with the stately Château de Chambord once the hunting lodge of François I and now twinned with our very own Udaipur City Palace, and the Chateau de Chenonceau that woos you with its pictorial setting. Take the family on a cycling holiday all together in the Loire which is known for its cycling trails. Do not leave without savouring the Muscadet or the crisp and dry Sancerre. Combine the best of "boat" worlds and enjoy a wine tasting and chateau spotting experience aboard a barge!
