ThHINGS TO DO IN THE AREA

Not that you really need our advice - after all, it's Paris! And the center of the city is just 25 minutes away by taxi, or about an hour by public transit. But the immediate area also offers a wealth of things to see and do. Versailles is just 12 KM to the east (8 miles). Just south of Le Plessis-Robinson is Arboretum de la Vallée-aux-Loups, a beautiful historic park complex created in 1777, with 2500 plants representing more than 500 woody species, including 165 species of trees. It is organized into a dozen gardens, including an English garden, fruit garden, chestnut garden, and Convolvulaceae (Morning Glory) collection. Also in the same area is the Maison de Chateaubriand, the historic home of the famous writer from 1807 to 1817.   Not far from there (6KM) is the spectacular Terrasse de l'Observatoire de Meudon, acquired by Louis XIV for his son in 1695. It offers a splendid view of the entire city of Paris. The central alley, lined with plane trees, leads to a monumental staircase which provides access to the pool, and below, to the beautiful Orangery.
