Located on the Left Bank of Paris, in the 14th arrondissement, not far from the Hotel Sophie Germain, it offers an enjoyable alternative to the capital’s buzz.
A delicious picnic in the Parc Montsouris
On a beautiful bright day, with the sun shining in a clear sky, nothing is more pleasant than a leisurely picnic with those you care about. The Parc Montsouris has extensive green lawns where you can spread out and relax under a big blue sky. With your friends, your family, your children or your partner, enjoy a tasty lunch in the Parc Montsouris then lie back and contemplate the clouds.

An energetic jog to get back in shape
