Surrounded by parks, Radisson Blu Hotel Paris Boulogne is an ideal spot for enjoying nature. Whether it’s sports or culture you fancy, the possibilities are virtually limitless. The 170 rooms feature wine-themed decor and the hotel’s vineyard can be admired from your window. The AOC restaurant boasts a 40-year-old grapevine growing on its terrace and offers a fresh take on French cuisine. The Parc des Princes stadium is just a stone’s throw away from the hotel. This is where the famous PSG soccer club plays. Catch a match featuring Paris’ home team once the French soccer season starts on August 4th!

Art buffs will want to get started at VOZ’Galerie. The gallery is presenting an exhibition of photography by Pierre Jamet entitled Y’a d’la joie !. Remind you of something, perhaps the famous lyrics of French singer-songwriter Charles Trenet? “Bonjour, bonjour les hirondelles / Y a d’la joie / Dans le ciel par-dessus le toit / Y a d’la joie”. This exhibition is sure to put you in a joyous mood! It runs until September 16th.

Grab some lunch at MASA. You’ll thoroughly enjoy the gastronomic cuisine on offer at this restaurant. Dining on their terrace is highly recommended in summertime. You’re bound to love the charming atmosphere as much as the great food!
