Hilly and so Parisian, the Buttes-Chaumont in North East Paris, is one of Paris most amazing parks. Build in 1867, this 25-hectare green paradise overlooking the city (incredible views) is home of numerous cliffs, a lake and a waterfall.
A perfect place for a picnic (Parisians drink bottles of rosé wine while laying on the grass), a family afternoon with the kids playing on the green hills, a romantic stroll or a jog. During the sunny days, it’s one of the best destinations to catch some rays in North East Paris.
Also home of Rosa Bonheur, the summer guinguette cherished by the locals (from 3pm to midnight for endless rosé wine and charcuterie planches) and of Le Pavillon du Lac, a romantic restaurant (with great Spritz parties on Thursdays).
Also home of Le Pavillon Puebla, a chill and bucolic terrace under the threes, open in June 2015.
