A great park and the rose garden is first rate. You can spend all day here and photo ops are all over. The garden is very historic. Can't miss going.

We went in June so found the rose gardens especially beautiful, although there are many other gardens and waterfalls to see in these extensive grounds. You can also visit the house which is open for short periods at the weekends. The downside is that you can only get there by car or a metro and bus journey from the centre... More

The Bagatelle Gardens in the Bois de Boulogne is a wonderful place to spend a sunny day in June. The roses are spectacular, with a multitude of colours and scents to feast the senses on. The call of the peacocks is ever present, and then you see the hens with babies under their tails in the long grass. The other... More

This park in the Bois de Boulogne has the most impressive rose garden I have ever seen. In addition the park has water gardens, peacocks, a small chateau and many wandering paths. We spent 2 hours there instead of the 1 hour we had planned.

This park is the result of a bet between Marie-Antoinette and the Count D’Artois, a bagatelle means almost nothing in French. Roses in blossom in June, a Chinese pagoda, the castle itself and the park worth a visit for a lovely afternoon. They are organising weekly flower expositions and there is a guided tour of the park. Difficult to find... More

If you like gardens and flowers do not miss this treasure so very near the centre of Paris. Especially in the month of June when the thousands of roses are in bloom you will be seduced by the lovely smells. We spent quite some time admiring this spectacle all very well labeled. Lots of places to sit and admire. Peacocks... More

In a city with so many beautiful gardens, you must take the time out of your schedule to get along and visit this park, even if it is just to sit and take a rest from the rest of your tour with a bite of lunch. Great opportunity for photographers as well.

Can you believe this? This park, an Anglo- Chinese gem in western Paris,was born of a bet between Marie Antoinette and the count Artoise in 1775. She won,of-course and the park miraculously materialised in 64 days. The beauty of the rose beds are internationally recognised with 12,000 varieties on hand to dazzle and delight. But for me,it is the layout... More

We did both Monet Gardens and Parc Bagtelle and Park Bagtelle was far more impressive as it was about 10 times the size of Monet Gardens. If you are a rose enthusiast this is a must but there are also walks and waterfalls. I left my husband under a shady tree while I absorbed the avenues of roses, twice :).... More
