When the Roland Garros and Bercy tournaments are coming up, I do interval training in this large, lovely public park almost every day with my coach to keep me at my best. We usually run for an hour around Lac inférieur. If you want to run with tennis players and other athletes, come here a few days before major competitions in Paris: All coaches take us there to practice in the open air!
Often referred to as the “lungs” of Paris (alongside the slightly larger Bois de Vincennes), Bois de Boulogne is a massive park in the west of the 16th, and is more than twice as large as New York’s Central Park. With 15 km of cycle routes and the possibility to hire wooden rowing boats on the Lac…
The biggest park in Paris 10 minutes away from the appartment. Beautiful trees and Lakes ! Perfect for running or walking around with kids or friends :)
For hors riding lovers (children and adults), rollerblading, jogging or just walking around beautiful lake I recommend this forest between morning (7am) and evening hours (6pm).
“Protruding out of the scenic Bois de Boulogne like a sort of futuristic giant glass sail, the Fondation Louis Vuitton is a striking piece of modern architecture. Designed by world-renowned architect Frank Gehry, it is worth a visit just to see the building even if you don’t venture inside to take a look at the art. The gallery tends to focus on artists from the 20th century.”
“The Arc de Triomphe is located at Place de l'Étoile at the top of the Champs-Élysées. It's a national symbol with an incredible view from its rooftop. You could go there by walk or by subway (line 1) within 18 min.”
“The Parc des Princes is an all-seater football stadium in Paris, France. The venue is located in the south-west of the French capital, inside the 16th arrondissement of Paris. The stadium, with a seating capacity of 47,929 spectators, has been the home pitch of Ligue 1 club Paris Saint-Germain since 1974. ”

“If you like to gamble on a horse racing, it is the place to be. Right in front of our appartment. 10 mns by walk. You also have the view on the field.”
“Fans of Monet and Impressionism, this museum contains good representations from his life's work. It was Claude Monet's son, Michel, who donated his father's collection to Musée Marmotton in 1966. Up until then the museum contained mostly pieces from the time of Napoleon, so today the museum is a mixture of the two distinct, opposing collections.”
