In the warmer months, Parisians leave the city in droves, making it one of the top times to visit: you get "the best of Paris and less frenzy", says The Daily Telegraph. Even better, hotel prices drop, which means that deals are easier to come by -- and this 2-night escape for £229 per person is one of the nicest we've seen in some time.
Return flights from London Gatwick, London Luton, Birmingham, Bristol, Dublin, Liverpool or Manchester, or Eurostar travel from St Pancras, two nights at the deluxe Hotel Pullman Paris Bercy in a Deluxe Room and daily breakfast.
Depart on select dates from 1-11 May; 11 July-23 August. It's an extra £20 to depart in April and June. See Fleetway Travel's website for exact departures.
Travelzoo tip: From mid-July to mid-August, three artificial beaches are created along the banks of the Seine. There are also several summer events, including the Paris Jazz Festival.
The hotel is just over three miles from both the Louvre Museum and the Notre-Dame cathedral. The nearest Metro station (Cour Saint-Emilion on Line 14) is a 3-minute walk away -- from there, it's two stops to Paris-Gare de Lyon in the centre of the city.
There's a gym and a sauna, as well as a fine-dining restaurant. Each Deluxe Room has a Bose iPod dock, a Nespresso coffee machine, free Wi-Fi and Roger&Gallet Bois d'Orange bath products.
Stay three nights for £279 per person.
