Parc de Bagatelle, Paris

4.5
#17 of 75 in Parks in Paris
Situated at the heart of the Bois de Boulogne, Parc de Bagatelle is one of Paris’s four botanical gardens. Created in 1775, the park and its chateau were built in 64 days after a wager between Queen Marie-Antoinette and her brother in-law, the Count of Artois. This site is the perfect place for you to stroll and relax amongst the stressful days of sightseeing. As well as large trees and varied plant life, little bridges, rocks, caves, bodies of water, and artificial waterfalls add to the charm and romantic aspect of the park.

In addition, the 19th century Chinese pagoda is just one of the park’s many curiosities to explore, and you can also admire the magnificent rose garden with 10,000 rose bushes from 1,200 different species. The park regularly hosts exhibitions and events as well as classical music concerts in the summer.

  • Beautiful well maintained Park, artists real landscape gardeners. Easy garage if you arrive early afternoon especially using entry number 2 (side guinguette) much less crowded. Given the extent of the aroused, you can walk quietly, away from the noise and the crowd. Always a lot of people around (splendid in May/June) rose garden but seats sufficient to blow in the middle of nature. The photos are superb recess: cave, waterfall, bridge of stones, belvedere, Chinese kiosk, Orangery, etc. Very nice bar, delicious ice cream to new perfumes (Lavender or purple for example), drinks varied they also. Of course, high price but a shame not to take advantage of the comfort of the tables, seats and umbrellas overlooking water and near waterfall. One tiny problem: the site map is sold 1 e, we could distribute gratucitement to visitors... Come and relax in this magical setting!

  • Botanical Park at the edge of the bois de Boulogne and Neuilly. Beautiful rose garden, peacocks in freedom that make the wheel, many lovely places with benches, a greenhouse that was transformed into concert hall dedicated to chopin. At all seasons, beautiful garden. A true aesthetic happiness and guaranteed rest

  • The beginning of September, the French still summer in the Park all blooms and smells sweet. Gorgeous rose garden, there are many other different colors, ponds, waterfalls, birds. Good that you cannot park ride neither on bicycles, nor on scooters. Pure, immaculate and comfortable. It is pleasant to sit by the water, feed the birds and take a walk along the paths of the Park.

  • A beautiful park - Nature - many species of flowers, trees and other plants, usually can not find parking spaces easily on the promenade. Toilets generally not very clean. Do not expect a friendly reception from the employees, the French are very boring, unfriendly, they work as if they were making a huge sacrifice and an overwhelming favor to you. Take with you potable water and snack, food and water in France cost the price of gold.
  • Beautiful in summer when its flourished, the only inconvinient is you have to pay (only in summer).
  • It is a parc in a parc. Really nice place.
  • Gorgeously manicured park replete with a bunch of roaming peacocks and lovely water features.
  • Most comfortable place Place in sunny day.

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
