Paris Travel Planner   Parc de Bagatelle, Paris, France
This beautiful chateau and gardens were built in less than 3 months, the result of a bet between the Count of Artois and his sister-in-law, Marie-Antoinette.


 

 

 

The Parc de Bagatelle lies within the beautiful Bois de Boulogne. It includes several small buildings and extensive gardens and is a destination in itself.

The Parc de Bagatelle includes a network of walking trails, ponds and streams, fountains, and large grassy areas for sitting or playing.

Children run around the park, and peacocks strut imperiously, adding to the ambience of the parc.

The Parc de Bagatelle is particularly known for its splendid roses. In the spring, the iris garden is also beautiful.

The Trianon and Orangerie host occasional special exhibits and concerts.

The Count of Artois, future Charles X, bet his sister-in-law, Queen Marie-Antoinette, that he could build a château and gardens in less than 3 months. It took 64 days, and the result includes several small, harmonious buildings and formal gardens. The city of Paris bought the property in 1905.
