☆ Bois de Boulogne ☆
A part of the forest that once surrounded ancient Paris, the Bois (Wood), a place of debauchery in the 18th century, became a fashionable promenade in the Belle Époque period thanks to the wide lane linking it to Paris, the creation of lakes and little rivers, the Pré-Catelan in 1855, along with racecourses in 1857 and 1873..

A green 845 hectare ‘lung’, which paths are a favourite place for joggers, horses and cyclists; the great waterfall attracts photographers, while rowing boat fans enjoy the lake, and children have fun in the play areas..

Do you have a preference for steeplechases or flat racing??

The former take place on the eastern side of the Bois de Boulogne, at the 33-hectare Auteuil racecourse, with 18 hectares of track, hedge and steeplechase..

For cheering on the jockeys and thoroughbreds in flat racing, the 57-hectare Longchamp racecourse in the western part of the Bois is the place to go..

In both cases, you don’t have to worry about being a betting fanatic to enjoy a good day out!!

Around the track and stands, you have the choice of panoramic restaurants, brasseries, picnic areas, free children’s areas, games and ponies as well as behind-the scenes visits..
