10 – 15 June 2019
Our tour to Paris in June is well timed for the gardens. We combine some fascinating gardens of châteaux in the surrounding countryside with others in town, adding elements of the influence of modern designers such as Patrick Blanc – renowned for his vertical garden – and Gilles Clément’s prairie style designs. Roses will be a feature and the profuse displays at Jardins de Bagatelle are exuberant.
We stay in a charming, small hotel in the 7ème district near the Eiffel Tower and the river Seine. We enjoy dinner on the rooftop restaurant of the Musée du Quai de Branly – and hopefully the sunset will be perfect.
Travelling by Eurostar from St Pancras is a relaxed way to arrive in Paris; we use a minibus for all our visits and transfers.
The climate in June will be warm and summery but with a possibility of showers.
Layered clothing is recommended, with a waterproof jacket in case of a shower, and good shoes. Smart casual for the evening.
Meals included are shown as B (breakfast), L (lunch) and D (dinner).
Wifi is available in the hotel.
Good walking ability for a minimum of two hours visiting gardens.
