Throughout the summer, Sofitel Luxury Hotels are offering travellers a ‘Chic Picnic’ promotion, providing a chance to explore a chosen city and take in the sights, before settling down to enjoy a sumptuous picnic of local delicacies prepared by the hotel Chef.

Sofitel hotels are located in some of the world’s most charming and picturesque cities, each with plenty to explore. From the Summer Palace (Beijing), the City of Flowers (Dalat), the Tuileries gardens (Paris), and the famous canals of Amsterdam, Sofitel hotels are located near some of the world’s most idyllic picnic spots.

The picnic baskets will be personalised to each city and can be tailored accordingly to a guest’s specific tastes and needs. In addition, the basket will contain many tempting gastronomic delights that are traditionally found in French kitchens.

For a three-night minimum stay, the Chic Picnic Package, available from 1 June to 31 August 2009, includes:

- accommodation
