There doesn't seem to be separate reviews for the Chateau de Bagatelle, which is located in the Parc de Bagatelle in the Bois de Boulogne. Most days you will only be able to see the exterior. There is one tour per week of the interiors on Sundays at 3:00 pm. You meet the guide at the main entrance of the... More

This less-touristy park is best appreciated in the spring or early summer. The roses and all the flowers are abloom, peacocks are roaming about, the atmosphere is perfect for a nice picnic.

Often missed by travelers to Paris, feel like a Parisian by picnicking with some wine, bread, and cheese in this gem of a park within the Bois de Boulogne. There is a mix of formal and wild gardens, including a rose garden, small birds and wildlife that include peacocks. Most of all, I loved the variety of trees. The park... More

Part of Paris' Botanical Gardens, this park is part formal, part natural. Plenty of lawned area with formal garden beds, a rose garden (go in spring or early summer, roses were past their best by July) and strategic benches to enjoy sun or shade. Some water features, including a waterfall, and lots of geese, ducks and peacocks wandering the grounds... More

So many people skip the Bagatelle because of its small admission fee! We're lucky enough to live within walking distance of it, so it's one of our favourite Spring and Summer places. Following a bet between Marie-Antoinette and her brother-in-law, the tiny chateau and its large park was built in 64 days in 1775, in the Bois de Boulogne. It's... More

We decided to head to a park on a Saturday morning and headed here. The place is just big enough for a walk and some variety of gardens. Very few people and so plenty of space to explore in private. Worth coming with a blanket and picnic and spending several hours here. Pack some extra bread to feed the ducks... More

A great park and the rose garden is first rate. You can spend all day here and photo ops are all over. The garden is very historic. Can't miss going.
