Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel and life around the cities I live. Don't be shy, leave a comment! :) Hope you enjoy!

Le Chalet des Iles- Parisian Escape

Le Chalet des Iles- Parisian Escape

If you're looking to "escape" Paris and want to feel like your somewhere in Scandinavia enjoying the outdoors, this is the place for you. In the giant Bois de Boulogne forest, just west of Paris city center, there is a small lake and within the lake are two little islands. The inferior island is home to Le Chalet des Iles. Le Chalet des Iles is a bar and restaurant with a large patio reaching the water. The island its on is only accessible by boat and the 30 second trip costs €1,50 for roundtrip. If you prefer a cheaper (free) option you can always picnic around the lake. We brought a blanket, some waters, and cards and laid out in the sun on the south end of the little island.  It's a great way to spend a warm summer day- with people canoeing around the lake, grabbing ice cream from the snack bars, or tanning on the grass. The Eiffel Tower even makes a guest appearance at various points around the mini lakes :)
