You thought you knew Paris by heart? And yet, the French capital still holds a charming green setting your may have never heard of. To discover it, you have to go to the Marais. Leave the hyperactive spots behind such as the Rue des Rosiers or the Rue de Rivoli, to head to the Archives area. There, surrounded by hotels particulier and not far from the Musée Carnavalet, go and look for 9 rue Payenne.
This is where you will find the Jardin Lazare Rachline, a very charming and secret spot in Paris. This small garden, often shaded, is the perfect place for a quiet break, far from the hustle and bustle of the French capital. Formerly known as the Jardin de l’Hôtel Donon, this beautiful green setting unveils a French formal garden surrounded by cone-shaped trees, in the middle of which flowerbeds with lovely colors blossom as soon as the weather gets warmer.
Take a book, have a seat, and enjoy this secret garden, or perhaps are you interested in botanic, and therefore, you should take a look at the main garden and admire the beautiful plants. At the back, right by the Hôtel Donon, a paved place presents a hidden corner perfect to work out or take an open-air Tai-Chi class. This is an incredible hidden spot!
