Even if they are pretty much urban types, the Deux Girafes team also enjoy getting out amongst the joys of nature. That’s why they know all the green spaces in the district and even beyond. Here are their recommendations for communing with nature in the heart of Paris.
Parisian gardens just a short stroll away
Your Hotel Les Deux Girafes is situated in one of the most dynamic parts of Paris. There is, however, no shortage of green spaces in the vicinity. Just a five-minute walk away, you can discover the pretty Square Maurice Gardette. Ideal for children, who will find a multitude of fun things to do there, it’s also a green haven that invites relaxation. Go on a little further to reach the Jardin de Port de l'Arsenal, a park on the east bank of the Canal Saint-Martin, where you can enjoy a romantic and refreshing stroll. Also well worth a visit is the elevated linear park called the René-Dumont Green Coulée, where you can take a walk or a bike ride through various urban landscapes.
The essential gardens of Paris
We couldn't talk to you about green spaces without mentioning the renowned Jardin des Plantes, a 20-minute walk from your Hotel Les Deux Girafes. With its collections of plants from around the world, gorgeous flower beds, huge greenhouses and a charming zoo, it offers a fascinating and fun experience for all the family. Finally, take the Metro to discover the most famous gardens in Paris: the Jardin du Luxembourg and its water features, the Jardin des Tuileries between the Louvre and the Place de la Concorde, and the sumptuous Parc de Bagatelle...
We at the hotel enjoy helping you make the most of the green spaces of Paris, from the most famous historic gardens to new linear parks and neighbourhood squares popular with Parisians...
