Spotted in Paris: A Smart Car from Hotel Relais Christine

Smart Car at Relais Christine, Paris

Guests of the Relais Christine can make like the Parisians and explore the City of Light on a bike (complimentary) or convertible 2-seater Smart Car (for a small charge). Recently spotted cruising around the monumental Place de la Concorde, heading for the Champs-Elysées Boulevard: the cute car with the Relais Christine name printed on the side. (What a fun way to see the sights!)

If you already have your own car, you’ll be pleased to know that the Relais Christine has a secure underground parking area that’s free of charge.

A member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World, the Relais Christine is situated in Saint-Germain-des-Prés in a converted medieval monastery. The hotel’s Payot Spa is located under the 13th century stone vaults, and some of the 51 guest rooms and suites have original wooden beams and private terraces. The hotel is on a small street (3 rue Christine) on the Left Bank, tucked behind a flowering courtyard. For more information, visit www.relais-christine.com.
