In Paris fourth arrondissement, not far from the Seine riverbanks and the Pont Marie lays a magnificent French formal garden where you can have a lovely break. Here is the Jardin de l’Hôtel de Sens.

Perhaps have you heard about the Hôtel de Sens already? This magnificent medieval residence set in the Marais also houses the Bibliothèque Forney library. But do you know the courtyard also features a little-know French formal garden?

This is one of the hidden treasures of the Marais. On sunny days, when Parisians are flocking to the Seine riverbanks, looking for a vacant spot to make the most of the sun by the water, some connoisseurs head to a little-known garden set not far from the Pont Marie.

To discover it, you only have to walk along the Hôtel de Sens, to rue des Nonnains-d’Hyères. At the 7 of this street, stands the entrance of this secret garden. First walk the alley before taking the stairs leading to this beautiful French formal garden. Surrounded by conic-shaped yew trees, flowerbeds blossom as soon as spring has sprung and adorn the place with their magnificent colors.

You can enjoy this beautiful green setting by roaming around or seating on one of the benches, admiring the view of the Hôtel de Sens. To make the most of this quiet place, we recommend you bring a good book along: you are likely to stay for hours, and hours…
