Paris Plages 2014 is something that we look forward to at Hotel Beaugrenelle Tour Eiffel, and this year the banks of the Seine and the Bassin de la Villette will be transformed into a sandy, tropical paradise from July 19th till August 17th. Go along to try a variety of fun activities. If beach volleyball isn't for you, how about tai chi or ballroom or flamenco dancing?

Of course, we're not the first to have looked forward to Paris Plages, and 19th century Parisians enjoyed the beach just as much. See how it was done in days gone by at the delightful Beaches by Daumier exhibition at Maison de Balzac from 20th June to 28th September.

There's always something exciting to see or do in Paris in July and the summer sales, Paris Cinema, Bastille Day and Paris Plages are just a few that we think you may enjoy.

July events in Paris 2014 appeal to all tastes

The summer sales are almost upon us! From 25th to 29th June, you'll find bargains for the home and family all over the city. See spectacular military parades on the Champs-Elysees, then join in with the feasting, dancing and fireworks as France marks Bastille Day on July 14th. Paris Cinema covers every genre in film and cinemas all over the city take part. Over 450 films from the classics to contemporary shorts ensure that everyone is catered for. The Tour de France cyclists will arrive in Paris on 21st July. Join the crowds on the Champs-Elysees to cheer them home.

Enjoy an ice cream or a cool drink under a palm tree, try a little yoga or tai chi and enjoy performances from street entertainers and musicians at Paris Plages from July 19th to August 17th.
