Bassin de la Villette – A holidays by the sea feeling in Paris

Hi everyone,

Today we went for a walk with Jaeger around the Bassin de la Villette. This waterway in the 19th district, right after the Saint Martin Canal, is the biggest artificial waterbody of Paris. It was created in 1808, and today it is a perfect place to walk your dog before having a nice dinner with a wonderful relaxing view.

Jaeger: 3/5

Us: 4,5/5

Jaeger loved:

  • The large and beautiful docks (and the many trees)
  • The bridges going over the waterbody and giving you nice and long perspectives
  • The many friends that you meet along the road
  • The possibility to mix that walk with an other one in le parc de la Villette, a dog friendly park of Paris (a post will be coming soon)

We loved:

  • The young and relaxed atmosphere
  • The possibility to make a bocce game almost everywhere
  • The many many many nice terrace to have a drink or a meal with a view on the basin
  • That holidays by the sea felling while watching the boats
  • The opportunyty to rent a small electric boat to have a nice picnic with your dog on the water (infos ici)

Jaeger was less amazed by:

  • The lack of grass
  • The lack of specific dog areas
  • The many people (but it was a summer friday night, normally the basin is more calm)

We were less amazed by:

  • The lack of green areas too
  • The doubtfull cleanliness of the water in the basin

Please do share your feelings about this walk. As usual, the map & google map link are under the pics.

Have a nice walk!

The Bois de Vincennes – the biggest nature area in Paris

Hi everyone,

On this really hot weekend we went for a walk in the Bois de Vincennes. It is one of the two big wood of Paris along with Bois de Boulogne (Vincennes is actually the bigger of Paris). It was the French kings hunting area for centuries before Louis XIV mooved to Versailles. It begins in the XII district and it is near the Vincennes castle.

For the dogs: 4,5/5

For the masters: 4/5

Jaeger loved:

  • The small streams for a fresh bath
  • The many, many (many) friends that you meet all along the road
  • The gigantic lawns, that are perfect to run with those new friends. It is kind of the official dog meeting areas!
  • The freshness on the small path in the shadow of the trees
  • The wild under woods
  • The fact that there is almost no streets and cars at all in the woods

We loved:

  • The more rustic look of the woods, way more natural and “exotic” than Boulogne
  • The small paths along the streams for a romantic walk
  • The opportunity to walk kilometers before crossing any road with car

Jaeger was less amazed by:

  • The cleanliness of the water, that really depend on the spots and the season
  • The few water fountain (bring water for your dog with you)

We were less amazed by:

  • The lack of café, no way to have a nice fresh cola in the sun if you don’t bring your own!

To conclude, Boulogne is an amazing playing field for your dog and for you. It is really one of the parks where you meet the most dogs in Paris, perfect if yours need to socialize. Also, even if the lawns aren’t closed, since the roads are far away, it is a good spot to train your dog to come back. It was definitely a nice walk, and we hope you’ll get the chance to try it too!

As usual the map is below the pics with a link to google map

Les Jardins du Palais Royal – the most beautyfull dog friendly park in Paris

Hi everyone,

This weekend we went to les jardins du palais royal, near the Louvre museum in the heart of Paris. That is definetly the most beautyfull park to walk your dog. This amazing garden was made under the order of the Cardinal de Richelieu in 1633. Here is our complete review with pictures.

For the dogs: 3,5/5

For the masters: 5/5

Jaeger was amazed by:

  • The many water fountain, really helpfull if your dog is thirsty
  • All the pigeons to hunt
  • All the friends that you get to meet here in order to play
  • The peacefullness of this closed park
  • The fact that you’re near the Tuilleries garden for a longer walk

We were amazed by:

  • The majestic place
  • The wonderfull green areas
  • The chairs all around the parc for a nice sunbath
  • The beautyfull cafés and restaurants all around the parc for a nice quiet lunch or drink in the sun
  • The famous Colonnes de Buren in the palace courtyard
  • The fact that you’re really close to the Louvre and in the heart of Paris

Jaeger was less amazed by:

  • The fact that you have to be on a leash
  • The fact that you can’t play on the grass

We were less amazed by:

  • Nothing, you can’t possibly be that difficult! 🙂

To conclued it is definitly a wonderfull walk, more for the masters than for the dog who is propably less sensitiv to the architecture. It is a nice stop to make if you want some peace after a long walk in Paris, or if you want to have a nice lunch or drink after a walk with your dog.

The map is uder the pictures, have a nice walk!

Bois de Boulogne – A piece of nature at the gateway of Paris

Hi everyone

This Week-end we were in le Bois de Boulogne. A big wood (2,5 times bigger than Central Parc), straight at the gateway of Paris near the chic 16th district. The parc was build under Napoleon III orders in 1852.

For the dogs: 4/5

For the masters: 4/5

Jaeger loved:

  • The big lawn near the lac to play freely with her friends
  • The small quiet paths that make you feel like being in a big forest
  • The squirels, craws, ducks, gooses… So many good opportunitys to run!
  • The small rivers to stay fresh

We loved:

  • The peacefull feeling when you take one of the small paths
  • The opportunity to grab a drink or something to eat for every budget from Relais & Château « le Pré Catelan », to small refreshment bars near the lac, without forgetting the famous Chalet des îles (Book it if you want to eat, and take cash for the shuttle because it is on an island)
  • The diversity of the parc

Jaeger was less amazed by:

  • The few roads that crosses the parc
  • The lack of spaces dedicated only to dogs

We were less amazed by:

  • The few dirty areas
  • The fact that you cant take the dog on the parc of the island (they are only allowed with you in the restaurant)

Globally, this is a very pleasant walk to make in order to have a small break, and also to discover the eiffel tower pointing its nose between two trees.

Right after the pictures you’ll find a map and a link to google map.

Have a good walk,

Bois de Boulogne – Un brin de nature aux portes de Paris

Bonjour à tous,

Ce WE c’était promenade au bois de Boulogne.

Pour les chiens : 4/5

Pour les maitres : 4/5

Jaeger a aimé:

  • La grande pelouse pour jouer avec ses copains en toute liberté
  • Les petits sentiers calmes qui donnent l’impression d’être en pleine foret
  • Les écureuils, corbeaux, canards, oies… qui donnent l’occasion de courir
  • Les ruisseaux pour se rafraîchir

Les maîtres ont aimé:

  • Le calme quand on se laisse perdre dans les petits chemins de traverses
  • La possibilité de s’arrêter boire un verre ou déjeuner pour toutes les bourses du Relais et Château du Pré Catelan, aux guinguettes du bord du lac, sans oublier le célèbre chalet des îles (pensez à réserver si vous voulez déjeuner sur place, et à prendre du liquide pour le bateau navette)
  • La diversité des différents espaces

Jaeger a moins aimé:

  • Les grandes routes qui traversent le bois de part en part
  • Le manque d’espaces de jeux, grande pelouse mise à part

Les maîtres ont moins aimé:

  • La propreté relative de certains coins du bois
  • L’interdiction des chiens sur les parcs des îles (ils ne sont acceptés que dans le restaurant du chalet des iles)

Au global une ballade très sympa, et une ombre agréable pour les jours de grande chaleur.

Après les photos, vous trouverez le plan détaillé et le lien google map en bas de page.
