Domaine National de Saint-Cloud, Saint-Cloud

4.3
#1 of 6 in Things to do in Saint-Cloud
Domaine National de Saint-Cloud offers 460 hectares of gardens, park, and woodland, and it represents one of the best examples of a classical garden. This venue was once a privilege of Philippe d’Orléans, the younger brother of Louis XIV, but no longer boasts a château, which was destroyed in a fire in 1870. However, you can still stroll about the grounds that burst at the seams with inspiring natural fixtures.

Designed by Le Nôtre, Domaine National de Saint-Cloud is also one of the most attractive parks to be found in the outer Paris area and has been dubbed with the "Outstanding Garden" label. Although an oasis of calm amidst the busy city, the park also holds a number of cafés and restaurants where you can grab a bite to eat and rest your feet.

  • A nice calm relaxing park. Filled so much green that any other colour stands out. From there you can see a and admire the city of Paris from such a marvelous view.
  • Good place for a walk and a picnic on a sunny weekend. The park is huge and relatively accessible by train from Saint Cloud or Ville d'Avray. It also offers nice views of the west of Paris.
  • Good view point for Paris. Huge park. Very quiet although visited at Easter.
  • Amazing area with lovely walks and views over the whole of Paris. There are 3 restaurants were you can enjoy lunch while sbeing surrounded by forest.
  • Wide field, beautiful views of Paris and the greens, worthy a visit to relax and enjoy. Good restaurants in the park.
