Add a touch of magic to your family's Christmas celebrations with festive ice-skating at La Cour du Jardin at Hotel Plaza Athenee in Paris. As your child perfects her pirouettes, you can sit back and relax with patisseries and hot chocolate at the Galerie des Gobelins. In the evening, the ice rink transforms into the spectacular mountain-themed Bancs d'Hiver restaurant, with a menu created by three-star Michelin chef Philippe Marc, and glasses of mulled wine on offer. Your child will be well cared for by babysitters arranged by the hotel's housekeeper while you enjoy the winter wonderland surroundings.

Prices start from £1,200 per night for a family of four staying in a superior guest room. Visit
