You can search the Internet for wine stores in France, but what we would recommend you to do instead if to visit Amazon.co.uk. If you press the link you will be taken directly to their wine and spirit section. Once you are there you can easily decide to choose only wine, and then you can later narrow the search to only French wines and so on. And since you live in the UK you will get them fast, there will be no problem with the delivery and the wine has a short way to travel before it arrives at your door.

In the same way you can also order French wine and Champagne at Amazon in Germany. Now you might say that you do not understand German, but that should not be a hindrance. After all you can now visit German Amazon in English, so just click the link for more information on how it is done.

If you read this article, but still have trouble because you are located outside Germany or England there are still solutions. The problem is that Amazon will not send wine and spirits to your address outside these nations. But, luckily there are companies giving you a virtual address in these nations for only to forward it to you in your country later against small fees. Doesn’t that sound cool? You can read more about this and how it is done in this article.

The next time travel to Paris yourself

The solutions described here are very easy to use and to understand. But, if you find them complicated then our recommendation is that you come to Paris yourself and do your shopping here. You still have to pay attention to the amounts of alcohol you can bring across the border with you home, but still – local wine tastes best in its home, that is in France.

Which hotel in Paris has the best view?

Are you out looking for a hotel in Paris with a beautiful view? Want to combine your magnificent view with a stunning five star hotel experience?

We have earlier written an article on the best five star hotels in Paris, so if you have not read that article yet, make sure to read that one. However, there is one hotel which was not added to that list, but which by many visitors are considered to be the hotel in Paris with the best view, and that is Hotel Plaza Athenee Paris.

Hotel Plaza Athenee Paris

Hotel Plaza Athenee Paris is located only five minutes from the Champs Elysees, so as you can understand, in the heart of the city of Paris. What makes the view from the hotel stunning is that you can from several rooms and facilities in the hotel look directly towards the Eiffel Tower, something worth a lot of money, especially during the evening when the flashlights are turned on. The hotel has a magnificent restaurant led by a Michelin awarded chef, and in the minibar you can find as much as 80 kinds of drinks to choose from.

So, for a brilliant five star hotel in Paris combined with a beautiful view, go for Hotel Plaza Athenee Paris, and do not forget to choose one of the Eiffel suites (since not all rooms enjoy the beautiful view provided by the Eiffel suites).

Which is the best five star hotel in Paris?

I am going with my wife to Paris to celebrate our wedding anniversary. I want it to be special and want to stay in the best five star hotel in Paris. Which hotel should I choose?

That is an awesome question, and a question that is kind of impossible to answer. There are more than 40 five star hotels in Paris, so there are way to many hotels to choose from, so our answer will mostly be based on general feedback from visitors and user reviews written on the Internet. Not many cities in Europe have as many five star hotels as Paris; Prague is a very popular city, but still they only have about 35 five star hotels. The little city of Belfast on the other hand only has two real five star hotels.

A five star hotel in Paris needs to be centrally located, but since the city is way to big, there is not such thing as an ideal position from which everything can be reached. Here are two hotels that we believe both fit into the category as the best five star hotel in Paris, and then you can of course feel free to pick a hotel in the one that sounds best and finest and most romantic to you!

Hôtel Fouquet’s Barrière

What can be better than a five star hotel in Paris, just along the Champs Elysees, and only a few metres from the Arc de Triomphee. The hotel itself has three restaurants, two bars, free minibars in the room and of course free wireless Internet connection. One of the restaurants in the hotel, Le Diane, enjoys a Michelin star. The hotel also has a nice wellness area, where you can relax after a tough day full of sightseeing and Paris attractions.

As you understand luxury and glamor awaits you in Paris. Based on user reviews Hotel Fouquet normally scores a bit higher, but if we had to choose, we would go for Four Seasons. However, if our wallet was to choose, then we would check the prices of both, and go for the cheapest.
