Paris Summer Sales 2014, between 25 June and 29 July, give you the chance to grab some fine bargains at some of the world's best department stores, with Hotel de la Herse d'Or as the ideal base for your Parisian shopping spree.
Our advice is to begin on one of the great boulevards of Paris: Boulevard Haussmann, home to some of the most famous names in shopping. The flagship Galeries Lafayette store gives you ten storeys of shopping in a magnificent art nouveau store, and it's a must-visit at sale time, with prices slashed on some of the world's best brands.
Nearby, at Au Printemps, housed in another beautiful building, you'll also find the fashionistas out to find the latest look at a lowered price. On the Left Bank, Le Bon Marché bids for the title of being Paris's most chic department store. Founded in 1895, here you'll find some of the top names in fashion - as well as the store's trademark homewares department.
