Delimited by the boulevard Picpus and the Bois de Vincennes, the Bel-Air district presents itself as a green setting in the heart of Paris.

Home to part of the Bois de Vincennes, the district is one of the greenest in the capital. Ideal for families, it is made up of a multitude of small streets and calm and lively corners.

The Sentier des Merisiers, one of the smallest alleys in Paris, guides us to pretty half-timbered houses. We let ourselves be charmed by its buildings adorned with Anglo-Saxon-style gardens and its passageways with rustic decor.

For an unusual stroll, take the Petite Ceinture, an old railway line that has become pedestrianized. Left fallow since 1934, vegetation has reclaimed its rights, invading it with unusual wild flora in the middle of the urban landscape.

The Bel-Air district offers a perfect balance between urban life and green parenthesis.



Located along the right bank of the Seine, the Bercy district is much more than a business district.

Detached from typical Parisian architecture, the district benefited from major restructuring works from the end of the 20th century, giving it its current face. Having become a real center of economic activity, the district also hosts important cultural and leisure points of interest such as Bercy Village located in the former wine cellars of the Halles wineries, the AccorHotels Arena omnisport palace or the French Cinematheque built by Frank Gehry .

Quai d’Austerlitz, we are intrigued by the Cité de la Mode et du Design and its futuristic-looking building. Designed by architects Dominique Jakob and Brendan MarcFarlane, it fascinates with its green facade with complex shapes. The district also offers many spots and addresses very popular with its residents. We find in particular on its quays, barges sheltering open-air bars known for their musical evenings.

A district appreciated by its inhabitants for its accessibility and its many centers of interest.



Set between Gare de Lyon and Bastille, this distinctive district takes its name from the famous Quinze-Vingts hospital.

Overflowing with remarkable places, the district runs along the right bank of the Seine. A quiet, residential area, many families settle here to enjoy the parks, entertainment and shops of all kinds. The district is thus renowned for its quality of life. Inhabited by the micro-district of Aligre, you can enjoy the famous Beauvau market, built by the architect Lenoir in 1779. This semi-covered market is one of the oldest in the capital. Once the bloody scene of the barricades of the revolution, the Place d’Aligre is a place steeped in history that has retained its special atmosphere.

On the cultural side, you can stroll between the arches of the Viaduc des Arts, a group of arts and crafts workshops, grouped together in a unique place. This viaduct is a mecca for arts and crafts, and today houses a group of craftsmen who exercise their talents in various areas of fashion, design, decoration, culture and jewellery. Each vault, dressed in its emblematic red bricks, becomes a place of excellent know-how.
For a green walk or bike ride, you can take advantage of the Coulée Verte, a former railway line rehabilitated into gardens, linking the Château de Vincennes to Bastille.

This trendy and cultural district between the Seine and the Coulée Verte is full of trendy “néo-brasseries” and other independent boutiques that give the whole area a taste for a stroll and a holiday.



More than a transit area, the Gare de Lyon district boasts a rich architectural heritage and trendy addresses shared by workers and families.

Built in 1900 as part of the Universal Exhibition, famous for its belfry otherwise known as the clock tower, the Gare de Lyon is the epicenter of this district with its great architectural diversity.

There are indeed opulent buildings in the Haussmann style, office buildings barely out of the ground, facilities from the 80s and 90s, including working-class housing estates from the beginning of the 20th century. Crossed by the Coulée Verte built on the old railway line of the Vincennes train, it is a refreshing walk in the middle of the roofs of the city. Under the arches of the viaduct, craftsmen and artists share the vaults to express their talents.

Finally, not far from the Gare de Lyon is also rue Crémieux, recognizable by its cute little colorful houses that delight Instagrammers…



Located in the heart of the 12th arrondissement, Daumesnil is a peaceful, family-friendly neighbourhood with large green spaces and small shops.

Crossed from east to west by the Avenue Daumesnil, from which it takes its name, this district of the 12th arrondissement is undergoing a complete renewal. Gaining in reputation, it welcomes in its streets a multitude of small boutiques and food shops, giving rise to some notorious addresses. Among them, the rue du Rendez-Vous, known for its fresh and local produce shops.

There are many places of interest such as the prestigious Ecole Boulle and the National Museum of the History of Immigration in the Palais de la Porte-Dorée. Representative of the Art Deco style, this monument with its magnificent gates designed by Jean Prouvé, features rhythmic and monumental sculptures by Alfred Auguste on its façade.

Located a stone’s throw from the Bois de Vincennes, the district also offers lovers of green spaces the possibility of escaping for a few moments to the banks of Lake Daumesnil and taking advantage of this immensity of greenery and its many activities.



The newly created Reuilly district is located in the 12th arrondissement, bordered by rue du Faubourg-Saint-Antoine, rue Chaligny, rue de Picpus and avenue Daumesnil.

A former small village where King Dagobert had a royal residence, this district is ideal for families looking for greenery. Well served by public transport and just one metro station from the Gare de Lyon, the district is bordered by the lively rue de Reuilly and the calm countryside of the planted promenade. The Viaduc des Arts, a former railway line that has been transformed into a veritable green artery, welcomes joggers and families who let themselves be carried to the Jardin de Reuilly: a green space designed by the architect Pierre Colboc and the landscape architects François-Xavier Mousquet, Philippe Thomas and Thierry Louf. The small Reuilly barracks, unique in its kind, which preserves the remains of the former ice cream factory, is also worth a visit.
