The island of La Jatte

Ile de la Jatte is an island on the Seine located not far from the district of La Défense

Ile de la Jatte was often represented by impressionist painters in the 1850-1950s, it was a place of relaxation for Parisians who came to dance in the guinguettes and enjoy the softness of the banks of the Seine. Today, Île de la Jatte is above all a fairly upscale residential area with a small public park. The walk on the island remains pleasant but it does not have the charm of yesteryear. However, it is still possible to walk along the Seine. If you are in the region, do not hesitate to visit Ile de la Jatte.

Friendly restaurant along the Seine but not really a guinguette since it is not possible to dance. The prices of the dishes are quite expensive.
