Best wishes for 2016

The New Year is approaching, and with it the promise of good resolutions and friendly wishes for health, success and happiness. And, though it is necessary to move forward, it’s also pleasant and rewarding to look back on the good times that we’ve shared and which are the basis for lasting memories.
Paris under the sunThe French Open tennis tournament took place not far from the Sezz Paris from May 19th to June 7th 2015. As happens every year, the stands of the prestigious Roland Garros stadium trembled at the exploits of the greatest words tennis champions as they razed the red clay courts with forehand lobs, lightening serves and stunning displays of excellence. Emotions ran high as Serena Williams fought like a lioness to take her third French Open title and as Novak Djokovic was forced to yield to the power and endurance of Stanislas Wawrinka to win his first French Open title. From 20th July to 23rdAugust, we saw the opening of blue striped umbrellas and sunbeds along the sandy banks of the Seine as Paris Plage returned to the capital. This annual event is popular with Parisians and visitors alike and it was, as always, good to sunbathe and read, enjoy an ice cream and swim within view of the Eiffel Tower and the bridges of Paris.
Autumn in ParisThe first red leaves had hardly fallen and the days had barely shortened when the capital was rocked by the arrival of the Nautic Show. Dream yachts, magnificent catamarans and elegant sailboats seemed like so many invitations to travel while competitors lined up for the start of the Nautic Paris Crossing Cup, a stand up paddle race on the Seine from the National Library to the Quai de Javel. As Autumn ended, Le Bourget hosted COP21 on December 1st. 150 heads of state and representatives from 195 countries were charged with agreeing on one of the major challenges of our time, the fight against global warming. Finally, we celebrated 10 dazzling years of the Sezz Paris in 2015. Ten years during which we have had the pleasure to receive you, to meet you, to share in your most beautiful and romantic moments in the world’s most beautiful city. We marked our ten year anniversary with a celebration and full colour exhibition of the works of Jean-Noel Chazelle in our glamorous Eiffel Suite from March 5th to 31st. Yes, 2015 was a year filled with emotion, sometimes wonderful sometimes scary. And, as the year draws to a close, we’d like to take the opportunity to extend to you our best wishes for a prosperous and fulfilling 2016.
