We loved these gardens and visited them every morning for a walk. It is interesting to share the gardens with the locals who jog around the outside. Our teenage son joined these joggers whilst we walked. The gardens are easy to get to and offered a peaceful haven in a very busy city.

A beatiful garden to enjoy a meal, run or just stay on the chairs on the lake. The flowers are beatiful.

I acknowledge that I am drawn to the big city gardens more than most, but after experiencing the Tuileries near the Louvre, I was expecting the gardens at Luxembourg Palace to be a real come down. Nothing could be further from the truth. I spent a few hours on a perfect day in early September admiring the setting for the... More

This garden is magnificent in that it boasts a stately home with beautiful flowers and trees.One can transcend oneself to the 1800s where images of horse carriages carrying the rich and powerful of those days driving up to the lighted home attending a grand party and music and laughter can be heard from the inside the opulent mansion.

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighborhood Profile
Saint-Germain-des-Pres
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighborhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighborhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
