Un dimanche à St-Germain-en-Laye :: André Le Nôtre

Monday, July 29, 2013


Five expats and a pup benefited from free train travel and went by RER A to St-Germin-en-Laye to pass a sunny Sunday afternoon enjoying the temporary art sculptures celebrating the 400th birthday of Louis XIV's gardener, André Le Nôtre, and some lying on the grass, chouquettes, finding the Eiffel Tower on the horizon, taking pictures and, finally, gelato.

  1. Oh I went there just 2 weeks ago! (and I loved the bed in the middle of the water lol)
    The gardens have such a cool view! But what I loved most was the little town... so cute!
    Have a great week!
