Spring is here and the Hotels Du Pré invite you to discover the most beautiful public gardens of Paris. These are havens of peace where you can enjoy a walk with your family or just alongside your special one...
The oldest gardens in Paris
The Jardin du Luxembourg, situated on the border between the Latin Quarter and Saint-Germain-des-Prés, offers French and English gardens. Here you’ll find colourful flower beds, an orchard of old and obscure apple varieties, greenhouses sheltering a splendid collection of orchids, a rose garden and beehives, as well as plenty of activities and attractions for all ages.
Nestled in the 17th arrondissement, the Square des Batignolles is a lovely landscape garden with a sheltering grotto, waterfall, a natural stream and a small pond as well as many kinds of tropical plants.
For jogging enthusiasts
In the north-east of Paris can be found the Parc des Buttes Chaumont, one of the largest parks in Paris and one of the most original. Built on a hill, it appeals to joggers and reveals beautiful views of the capital, including Montmartre. It’s also home to a large lake and an exquisite cliff-perched temple as well as many exotic and native trees. The park offers entertainment and places to eat.
The most flower-filled and the most romantic
In the heart of the Bois de Boulogne, the Parc de Bagatelle is an ode to nature that was built in just 64 days following a wager between the Comte d'Artois and Marie Antoinette. The varied flora includes more than 10,000 rosebushes representing 1,200 different species and offers an especially colourful display in June.
Romantic and atmospheric, the Parc Monceau is widely regarded as one of the capital’s most elegant parks. You’ll enjoy strolling amidst the magnificent trees to discover the numerous statues and the large pool, all enwrapped in a tranquillity made all the more profound by the enchanting songs of a wide variety of birds.
