A year-round shopping paradise, Paris becomes magical at Christmas time. Just a stone's throw from Bastille, in the Faubourg Saint-Antoine district, Hôtel L'Antoine is the ideal place to discover charming addresses and browse the Christmas markets...
Every shade of Christmas
They're everywhere in Paris, for a month and a half or a weekend. Although there are many Christmas markets, each has its own identity. Not far from the Hôtel L'Antoine, you'll discover three very special ones. First, the Alsatian Christmas Market at Gare de l'Est. Pretzels, flammekueche, charcuterie, cookies and decorations - there's no shortage of traditional Christmas fare. In the Marais district, sunshine awaits you at the Afro-Caribbean Christmas Market. Crafts, fashion, beauty, books and decorations inspire a real change of scenery. Last but not least, Atelier Basfroi offers you a psychedelic Christmas market that's totally off the beaten track, but full of finds!
Fancy a little Parisian Christmas shopping? The BHV Marais department store is just around the corner, with its lively window displays and trendy selection of top brands.

The Broken Arm, Elevastor, Tom Greyhound and Stella Prado offer trendy collections and confidential labels that are already setting the next trends... And for a responsible Christmas, check out the neighborhood's chic vintage thrift stores such as Nuovo or Chez Snow Bunny.
