If you're looking for Paris apartments away from the city center, Saint-Germain-en-Laye in Yvelines is among the best destinations available. This part of town is notably quiet, yet it offers an undeniable sense of refinement throughout its elegant, tree-lined streets. In fact, vibrant flora is a prominent feature here, as this district is home to the National Forest of Saint-Germain-en-Laye.

Things to do

Checking out King Louis's crib in Saint-Germain-en-Laye

If Saint-Germain-en-Laye feels regal, that's because it is. King Louis XIV was born in 1638 in the lavish Chateau de Saint-Germain-en-Laye palace. It later became home to the exiled King James II, Britain's last Roman Catholic monarch. The palace is now open to the public, and houses the National Museum of Archaeology, which exhibits artifacts dating back to Paleolithic times. The palace and museum are adjoined by the Forest of Saint-Germain-en-Laye. Covering over 8,600 acres, it was once the hunting grounds of French kings, and is now a popular destination for locals looking to escape the confines of the French capital.
