France
Come fly Austrian Airlines to France and be prepared to eat and drink your way through the most beautiful country. Paris is the bustling capital city, with the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre Museum, Notre Dame and the famous wide boulevard known as the Champs de Elysee. Stop into any brasserie or cafe as you stroll around. Outside of Paris, the many regions of France offer a variety of geography and of course, many varieties of wine. Travel south to the Cote d'Azur, Saint Tropez or Nice, and mingle with the Jet Set. Make your way through the Dordogne, with its rocky canyons and little towns. Head north from Paris to the great windswept beaches of Normandy, englufed in their great history or the great chateaus of the Loire Valley. Whether you visit the big cities or the country villages, your trip to France will leave you the most satisfied.

Freep's'Star
Welcome to the oversized storage box. You've got to fight through the fumes of mothballs. The reward could be a piece of clothing that you would have never dreamt of! So, hold your breath and start browsing. This second-hand store is packed to the ceiling with great pieces, you just have to rummage until you've found the right one. And that's before any of the other trendsetters, who flock here in big numbers, find it first! A few hours later and a stuffed nose, combined with a few new tasteful pieces for the wardrobe and you have to think to yourself: if Freep's'Star was bigger and more organised, it would've only been half as much fun!

Duo
It doesn't get more central than this! The location of the Duo in the heart of the Marais quarter, surrounded by restaurants, bars and boutiques, is not to be beaten. As hard as it is to leave this feelgood-hotel, go out and explore the very urban and unmistakably French Marais district. Out of the once cool design hotel, renovation has turned the Duo into a stylish feelgood hotel. Modern decorations meet old frames and practical furnishings on wood-parquett floors out of the 18th century set the scene here at the Duo. The rooms are fantastic, but the most comfortable thing about this hotel is that shopaholics can drop off their shopping bags before heading off into the next boutique. Well, at least when you are in Marais to go shopping. Double rooms from 200 euro a night.

Champs Elysées
A stroll over the Champs Elysées is not to be missed. There's countless noble boutiques and trendy people to be seen. Shiny eyes are on the cards, and once you've had enough of looking at the luxury on display, then you've probably already reached the Arc de Triomphe. Only a few take the time to ascend the arches, probably because of the 300 steps involved. However, the view from the Arc de Triomphe is almost better than the Eiffel Tower. The city doesn't seem so far away from the 50 metre height and you can still spot all the sights with ease. Inside the arch, there's a museum dedicated to the city's history and a changing historical exhibition.
Notre Dame

Meurice
Since 2007, the head chef Yannick Alléno has been decorated with three stars. The Ambience here is even deserving of a star itself. It is not often that you find a restaurant that is so kitschy yet so tasteful in style. Between the marble, gold detail and the ceiling frescos there is one particularly noble detail: there's a small stand next to every chair to respectfully cater for ladies handbags, so that the all-important item mustn't touch the floor or hang off the back of the chair. The kitchen is outstanding, there are set menus and also à la Carte dishes to be chosen. The wine list is exquisite, even the selection of open wines is sure to impress. There's an interesting surprise for a restaurant of this class: there's even a children's menu. Hot tip: the best tables are in the conservatory.
