A cultural and gourmet capital, Paris also knows how to host a wide variety of exciting events. In addition to various exhibitions, the catwalk buzz of Fashion Week, and a wealth of concerts and plays, the Saut Hermès and the Art Paris Art Fair take place in March. Stay in one of the welcoming hotels of the Compagnie Hôtelière de Bagatelle and participate in these events of international scope.
The cream of the show jumping world
The Saut Hermès, named after its elegant sponsor, is a show jumping competition classified CSI 5*, the highest category. The best partnerships of riders and mounts compete for three days from March 17th to 19th. Although the Grand Palais, closed for renovation work, cannot host the competition as usual, you can discover the amazing spaces of the Grand Palais Éphémère at the foot of the Eiffel Tower. Many activities are offered in addition to the main event, including horse shows, carriage racing, nightlife and more.
The contemporary art world meets in Paris
From March 30th to April 2nd, the Art Paris Art Fair opens its doors at the Grand Palais Éphémère. As with previous editions, the fair will welcome some 150 galleries from all over the world, representing the diversity of current artistic creation. Exhibitions, meetings, happenings, and associated events outside the walls add up to an exhilarating experience that is aimed at professionals, enthusiasts and neophytes alike. This year, the two themes chosen are Art and Engagement: A Look at the French Scene and Exile: Dispossession and Resistance.
The Compagnie Hôtelière de Bagatelle offers seven establishments in the heart of Paris and so can help you to make the most of the various events the capital is hosting in March. Opt for the glamour of the Platine Hotel, 15 minutes by Metro from the Grand Palais Éphémère, or the elegant setting of the Hôtel Les Théâtres, 20 minutes by Metro…
