Is there any better excuse for a weekend away than a less than half price deal. This stay, worth 848 GBP is currently selling for 350 GBP in our travel auctions, one of the best-kept secrets in the world of luxury travel.

This 2 night stay is for 2 guests in a chic guestroom with terrace embracing the street view and famous Haussmann buildings at the elegant and stylish Maison Astor Paris which lies in the Parisian 8th district.

You can bid for this 2 nights in Paris or take a look around and see if you can find another item that look to be a good deal.

Realistically, this stay may sell for slightly more, but it will undoubtedly sell for far less than the RRP. Bid only what you want to pay to stay and you might just bag a bargain!

“I won some nights at the Fraser Capri Suites in Frankfurt (in the luxury travel auction) and as a result, have ended up booking with them again several times” – Alan.

“…thank you for organising a brilliant stay at Grande Real Villa Italia hotel and Spa. We loved it. The hotel room was beautiful, in a truly specular location. Food was great as was the Spa….We have left great feedback on trip advisor, told all our friends to book and hope to return soon” – Janice.

“The group of four I had out yesterday afternoon read about me on the Luxury Travel Diary! So thank you for featuring me!” – ToursByApril.

“I have been going to Bali twice a year since 2003, but have never visited the area of this resort. Always staying at the Four Seasons Sayan in Ubud and its sister hotel in Jimbaran Bay… I am actually going to add extra 4 nights to this stay so we can enjoy the place and the area. Winning this auction was a major factor in booking extra nights.” – guests of Plataran Menjangan Resort & Spa.

“I had a wonderful weekend at the Satri House. It is a beautiful hotel, with an excellent staff. Everything exceeded my expectations from the airport transfers to the beauty of the hotel. It was 2006 when last I was in Luang Prabang. I had forgotten what a lovely destination it is. Please pass on my thanks to all those involved in making last weekend a glorious one for me. I now look forward to my next auction win !” – Christopher

“Bambuddha restaurant had very stylish settings and the food was excellent!! The other prize I gifted to my sister for her birthday present and with her friend, they really enjoyed the dinner too! I’m sure I will be back at this restaurant!” – Robin

“I was very lucky to have won the winning bid for the ‘Private Butler for a Day’ Auction. Christopher and Thomas from Noble & Hitsch did an amazing job of looking after us for our cocktail party at home. They helped us set up for the party, prepare all the food and drinks, as well as serve our guests with the utmost professionalism. I would highly recommend their services to anyone looking for a Butler in Hong Kong.” – Mrs B
