About

The French Open, often referred to as Roland Garros, is the largest clay court tournament of the year. Because of the slow playing surface and the five-set men's singles matches without a final set tiebreak, it is considered to be the most physically demanding major.

This tennis vacation and tour package has a wide variety of tennis seats, including Category 1, Category 2, and Loge locations in Philippe Chatrier (Court Central), boasting excellent views of all the tennis action. Our choice accommodations, Hotel Bel-Ami, is situated in the center of Paris in the Saint-Germain-des-Prés neighborhood between the national museum of Quai d’Orsay and the Notre-Dame Cathedral.

World Tennis Travel has partnered with Grand Slam Tennis Tours and offering a tennis vacation and tour package to the French Open so you can enjoy an iconic Parisian tennis experience. Enjoy excellent seats at Roland Garros, a Welcome Dinner with past Grand Slam champions, a tennis experience on the red clay of the Tennis Club de Paris, and much more.

Accommodation
Originally a monastery built in the late 14th century, the 5-star Bel Ami Hotel occupies a building rich in history and owes its name to the title of one of the best known works of French literature from the 19th century - 'Bel Ami' by Guy de Maupassant.

The Hotel Bel Ami is a mere stone's throw from the Place Saint-Germain-des-Prés, a few minutes' walk from 'Café de Flore' and the restaurant 'Les deux Magots', once frequented by Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir, Marguerite Duras and their existentialist circle.

While the last few years have seen major luxury fashion houses take up residence beside designer boutiques on the left bank, including Louis Vuitton, Ralph Lauren and Emporio Armani, the Place Saint-Germain-des-Prés continues to attract artists and intellectuals.

Today, the hotel is distinguished by its high standards of comfort, accommodation and the quality of their services and facilities, earning it a reputation and a loyal client base in France and around the world.
