That’s Sceaux French!

Parc de Sceaux

For classic French gardens without the usual crowds, head south to Parc de Sceaux. Designed by the father of the jardin à la française, André Le Notre, Sceaux offers a more peaceful alternative to the grandeur of Versailles. On a sunny day, you can bike or jog or simply take a nap on the grass. Feel free to picnic on the steps of the Château de Sceaux, which was once home to Louis XIV’s finance minister.
