Newsletter – December 2017


It’s the final countdown to Christmas and the Atout France Press team are very much looking forward to the festive period. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you wonderful people for a brilliant year! Awesome anniversaries, new transport routes, hotel openings, gastronomy festivals, major sporting announcements, exceptional holiday destinations revealed…
PHEW!! What a year it has been!

Our London Office will be closed from the 22nd of December 2017 until the 2nd of January 2018. Until then, we hope that you all have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We will see

you all again in 2018 and look forward to working with you. But of course, we could not leave without a bit of inspiration for next year…

A closer look at France highlights in 2018

What is new in 2018? As another new year gets under way, there is lots to look forward to in France. Take a sneak peek at our latest press release to find out more.

New year, new kids in town!

… And unfortunately, some are leaving. Our lovely PR trainee Cassandre is leaving us end of December and will be replaced by Gabrielle Bernoville as of the 8th of January.
We also had a snowy departure! It seems that Matt Carr had a sixth sense about the current awesome ski conditions in France and left for Val d’Isere for the winter.
Sarah Engel, Press Officer in Atout France Press team, left for France in October and has been replaced by the equally lovely Marine Teste.

#FEELPARIS for Christmas

Paris at Christmas is magical. Its famous landmarks are four times twinklier than usual, Christmas decorations adorn the streets, patisserie shelves groan with seasonal delights and department store windows are filled with animated displays.
Wander through festive markets, munching roasted chestnuts and warming your hands around a mug of vin chaud.

Find out more here and in the 2018 Paris press release.

ACTUAL hotel openings in 2018

Nope, there will be no Mandarin Oriental Boutique Hotel opening in Paris next year! Santa’s naughty elves played an early trick on us and somehow managed to sneak in that a Mandarin Oriental hotel was due to open in the east wing of the Elysée Palace in 2018 … Obviously not!
So we thought that a list of ACTUAL top hotel openings in France would be more interesting!
