Created in the 18th century, the Arboretum de la Vallée-aux-Loups is a must for nature lovers and plant enthusiasts. Come and wander around its 12 hectares of botanical gardens, far from the hustle and bustle of city life, and discover a magnificent collection of nearly 500 species of trees and shrubs.

Situated right next door to Chateaubriand’s House, these English-style landscaped gardens are bucolic and romantic in equal measure and a remarkable place for a stroll. Lose yourself in reverie as you take in sights such as the cave, the waterfall, the suspension bridge, the mill and the gazebo. And don’t miss the greenhouse, home to a vast selection of convolvulaceae (climbing and creeping plants or herbaceous vines). Another must-see is the weeping blue atlas cedar, worth the trip for its imposing branches alone.

The Arboretum de la Vallée-aux-Loups is open all year round and each season brings new delights, from the blossom of spring, to the fruits of summer, to the burning red and yellow hues of the autumn leaves. For any visitor looking to commune with nature, it is the gift that keeps on giving.

Discover the Arboretum de la Vallée-aux-Loups through one of the treasure hunts in the Paris Region Adventures application specially designed for families and downloadable free of charge.
