Sofitel welcomes its littlest guests to the magical world of The Little Prince


The Magnifique Family Package transports children to a world of fun and adventure while also supporting the Antoine de Saint-Exupéry Foundation. Sofitel Hotels and Resorts and The Antoine de Saint-Exupéry Foundation invite families to experience the delights of The Little Prince, the famous tale written by acclaimed author Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, for an enchanting visit inspiring creativity, adventures and sweet dreams. “The Magnifique Family” package provides visiting families with a tailored travelling experience, with thoughtful and bespoke details designed to transport youngsters into the poetic world of The Little Prince

The Antoine de Saint-Exupéry Foundation is active in empowering young people around the world through various projects: training, learning, culture, art, sport, tourism, nature and more. Sofitel has chosen to support this wonderful initiative through “The Magnifique Family” package by donating two euros to the Antoine de Saint-Exupéry Foundation for every booking made.



Upon arrival at a Sofitel, Little Prince themed labels are attached to each child’s luggage and attentive staff will ensure they receive the same pampering service as mom and dad. The fun continues with delicious cakes and fruit juices waiting in the guestroom beautifully decorated in the theme of the petite hero invented by Saint-Exupéry.

Children will be entranced by The Little Prince’s amazing adventures and will enjoy colouring books, customizable postcards and pencil crayons to help them illustrate their fantastic experiences in the style of The Little Prince.

Bedtime will delight children who, in some Sofitel hotels, will be able to snuggle down in bed linen inspired by the world-famous story. A cozy bed decorated with stars and sheep will cap off an exciting day of journeys and adventure and carry small guests into the blissful world of dreams.

Following a good night’s sleep, little ones will enjoy a buffet breakfast designed by the hotel’s chef.  This creative feast, inspired the chef’s own childhood, will offer up beautifully inventive treats to satisfy the most selective young palates and hungry tummies.
