It’s the capital’s focal point for haute couture, prestigious brands and luxury goods, so no stay in Paris in the run-up to the Christmas holidays would be complete without a shopping session on the Avenue Montaigne. Situated in the famous Triangle d'Or (Golden Triangle), this typical 19th century Haussmann-style thoroughfare is home to some of the upscale retail world’s biggest names. Essential!
Your festive shopping spree on the Avenue Montaigne
Passionate shoppers increasingly shun the Champs-Élysées, which they consider overly busy and filled with brands that are too commonplace. That's why they vastly prefer this luxurious avenue that is much quieter, more genteel and dedicated to distinguished names in the field of luxury living. All the major haute couture labels have made their home here, from Chanel to Jimmy Choo through Dior, Gucci, Prada, Vuitton, Fendi, Ferragamo and more. All styles are represented, and the setting is simply magical. You are sure to find the ideal gifts to spoil your loved ones.
An Avenue Montaigne Christmas
The avenue is attractive all year round, with its mansions, its English courtyards and its tastefully dressed windows, but at Christmas time it gains an extra-special charm. The festive atmosphere is perceptible without being overstated and you can stroll along the pavements at your own pace without being jostled. When your shopping is done, on the way back to the Hotel du Continent you can enjoy the illuminations of the Champs-Elysées, ride the Ferris wheel in the Place de la Concorde or enjoy grilled chestnuts in the alleys of the Tuileries. All the charm and conviviality of the Christmas season!
Your Christmas shopping will be immensely satisfying this year, thanks to the Avenue Montaigne. Come and discover the place’s Parisian spirit, luxury, fashion and Christmas traditions.
