Share our secret Parisian gardens
Published on 19 July 2016 in Visit Paris
When the sun finally returns after winter, the desire to take a stroll outdoors where you can admire the trees and flowers in a quiet setting to the sound of tinkling fountains is strong. Les Plumes Hotel would like to share the addresses of some of the secret gardens that add to the charm of Paris in the summertime.
Gardens that are filled with surprises
The charming Jardin Tino Rossi on the Seine is one of our favourite spots to share with guests. As is the Jardin des Plantes at the Arab World Institute. Its many contemporary works of art and refreshing views of the river boats, this beautiful space will take you on an amazing journey. Another neighbourhood, a different atmosphere; the former home of Balzac is now a museum and its gardens bring a little piece of the countryside to the heart of the sixteenth arrondissement. Fragrant roses, verdant lawns, and conveniently spaced benches help to create a space that is the picture of peace and calm after a busy day in the city. A truly relaxing escape from the bustle of Paris.
Meditation and travel
As well as somewhere that you can stroll or rest, the garden is a place of meditation. Why not visit two secret Parisian gardens that will transport you far from the capital? The first is just a few metro stops from Les Plumes Hotel within the walls of the Great Mosque of Paris. Linger over mint tea and delicious pastries in an exceptional setting as you savour the gentle murmur of its fountains. The Buddhist Pantheon Guimet Museum is another foray into the Far East and this wonderful Zen garden reflects Asian spirituality and serenity. Be sure to attend a traditional style ceremony that celebrates the magic of the drink in the new Tea Pavilion.
