La Samaritaine: a long-awaited reopening
In the galaxy of those symbols of Parisian shopping, the Grands Magasins department stores, a star was missing. La Samaritaine had closed in 2005. However, following extensive restoration work, it has now returned to the firmament of the great Parisian brands, marking the launch of a summer season under the sign of rebirth. Your Hotel Monte Cristo team presents the new Samaritaine…
Shopping version 2021
The LVMH group has set the bar very high by reopening the 10,000 m² of La Samaritaine, facing the Pont-Neuf and just a stone's throw from the Rue de Rivoli. You will, of course, find there the biggest names in fashion, leather goods and design, as well as the creations of young designers who will undoubtedly set trends in the years to come. La Samaritaine also offers spaces dedicated to art with its Factory gallery space, which this summer gives carte blanche to urban art. Why not go along for a shopping spree and a gallery viewing, then treat yourself to a pampering session in the largest beauty space in Paris? To finish off, enjoy a gourmet meal created by the store’s Michelin-starred chef or take a snack break in one of the various eateries on the fifth floor!
And for culture enthusiasts ...
A shopping session at La Samaritaine is also a cultural experience because the buildings fascinate with their beauty. The restoration has been faithful to the building’s structure and the Art Deco and Art Nouveau décor while bestowing a touch of modernity. From a detail in a frieze of golden mosaics to the magnificent stairs rising towards the glass roof, from the floral decorations to the intricate scrolls of the railings, it’s a feast for the eye. What’s more, you can book a guided tour with a site expert to discover all the secrets of this listed Historic Monument.
Take advantage of your stay at the Hotel Monte Cristo and treat yourself to a true shopping experience and plenty of La Samaritaine surprises.
