Family House With Garden Right Next To Paris Zoo
Our home is right next to the Bois de Vincennes park and Paris Zoological Park.
Most Paris accommodation is is in the form of apartments, but we are lucky enough to have a detached house with a garden.
Bedroom 1: Two twin beds (plus an extra mattress)
Bedroom 2: Two bunk beds
Bedroom 3: One single bed (plus an extra mattress)
There is a balcony upstairs, and the garden has a pergola and a barbecue,
WiFi is available.
We have a very relaxed cat who stays at home during our holidays.
The stairs in the house (see photo) are not suitable for children under five, though our own children (now nine and ten years old) grew up here and had no problems.
There are shops and supermarkets five minutes' walk away.
The Bois de Vincennes park at the end of our road provides:
- Walking paths and biking trails
- Sporting facilities, such as horse races, family sports trails, boating, tennis courts, the National Institute of Sport, Expertise, and Performance (Institut national du sport, de l'expertise et de la performance = INSEP), etc
- Paris Zoological Park
- Parc Floral de Paris, with fabulous playgrounds for children
There is an open air 50 metres swimming pool (open the in summer) and a covered 25 metres swimming pool within five minutes' walk.
There are two metro lines and several bus options for the twenty minute trip to central Paris (Notre Dame, Bastille, etc)
We are on the Disneyland side of Paris. It is thirty minutes' drive away, or an hour away by train.
We are a Franco-Irish family living in Paris.
We love the buzz of Paris old town - the 4th, 5th and 6th arrondissements - and walking along the banks of the Seine, past Notre Dame and Hôtel de Ville.
As our house is right next to the Bois de Vincennes park, we regularly cycle and walk there.
