Stretching on four hectares, the île Fanac – set in Joinville-le-Pont – is a very green islet. No car is allowed here, the only ways in are a lift and stairs by the Pont de Joinville. Say goodbye to put-putting noises, horns and mad motorists and other city-related noise pollution sources.
The asset of the islet: its peace and tranquility providing a very delightful walk location to escape the city’s hustle and bustle. It also provides lots of entertainments, especially sport-related; a rowing and canoe-kayak club is available on site.
Cultural entertainments are not left out. A School of Art is set on the islet. Fun fact, it is found in a former guinguette depicted by Emile Zola in his novel “The Ladies’ Paradise”. The quai de la Marne, across the island, offers a great viewpoint to enjoy the building which ochre façades seem to play with the green of the branches.
From this very bank, have fun finding the elegant houses scattered across the landscape – some are covered in ivy, others are made of wood or even feature turrets – often linked to private barks and piers (please!).
Keep walking and you might run into a very original barge: the Lapin vert. With its bright colors and half hidden by the surrounding greenery, the boat is cosmopolitan and open to all. Enjoy couscous, shows, concerts, an associative café and even an open stage or stand-up stage: all are very good reasons to give it a go!
