Parc de Sceaux, Sceaux

You will find Parc de Sceaux in front of the Château de Sceaux, a grand country house that now houses an art museum. Landscape architect André Le Nôtre, Louis XIV's chief gardener, laid out the park. It once included terraced gardens, canals, an orangery, and a stone cascade that flows into an octagonal basin. During the French Revolution, the state confiscated the property and sold it. The new owner destroyed the original château and grew crops in the famed ornamental gardens. During Napoleon's reign, different owners restored the park to its original glory and built a smaller home on the site. Today, the park is open to the public.

    Beautiful and immense park twenty minutes away from the city centre. Complete with a huge artificial lake and a very pleasant castle hosting a collection of local ceramics and temporary art collections. Don't miss it!

    Simply gorgeous. Parc de Sceaux has to be among the best I've visited around Paris. The well manicured grass and structures had left me astounded.

    I am giving one star because I don't want to attract tourists and parisiennes to this heaven. Otherwise, it is a spectacular dreamy place where you can run, do a picnic, and rest.

    What a beautiful estate! It is free to visit the grounds. Going to see the cherry blossoms in April is a special treat. I would recommend taking a picnic basket and blanket for an especially relaxing afternoon.
