Destination guide

A vacation in Vincenne is tres, tres bien

With Vincennes vacation rentals, you'll be just 4 miles from the center of Paris—c'est genial! This dynamic suburb that's a stone's throw from the 12th arrondissement (district) is 1 of Europe's most densely populated areas, but don't think for an instant there's no open space. Vincennes is also home to Paris' largest public park and zoo, an area that used to be a royal hunting ground during the Renaissance. And Vincennes is most well-known for its epic castle, which housed many a royal highness, and is now considered a symbol of the modern French state.

Things to do

Storm the bastille and the castle, all in one day

The piece de resistance of Vincennes is Chateau de Vincennes, which used to house the Kings of France until they moved to Versailles. Today it's a revered medieval museum and it's also just a pretty darn cool fortress. Also in the 12th is the massive park, Bois de Vincennes, which has 4 lakes, a zoo, an arboretum, a botanical garden, a horse-racing track, and a velodrome for bike races. And what better place to storm the Bastille than Place de la Bastille, the iconic square set on the site of the infamous prison.


Feast your eyes on the sights and your tummy on the food

Hopefully, sightseeing tops your acitivity list, because there are umpteen iconic things to do and see with Vincennes vacation rentals. This is Paris, after all, and you can't throw a baguette without hitting something magnifique. Or eating something wonderful. Paris is world-renowned for its cuisine, so this is a parfait place to find restaurants with that rare Michelin 3-star rating, if you can snag a res. To work off the fine-dining calories, wander over to Vincenne's sprawling public park, where you can walk and bike around the lakes, admire gardens and bet on horse races.


There's a reason Paris has no off-season

There's a reason you'll love Paris in the springtime. And summer. And fall and winter. It's tres jolie all year round. August is the hottest month with highs in the mid-70s, and January temps are in the mid-30s. There's a fair amount of rain throughout the year, with most falling in May. It snows in the winter, but the white stuff doesn't stick around long enough to make a snow angel. There's not really an off-season in Paris—this is 1 of the world's most visited cities. But summer's busiest, when the weather's gorgeous and the daylight hours are long.

Natural features

Somehow this teeming city makes room for nature

Paris is a relatively flat city and Vincenne, just outside the 12th, is no exception. It's in the Val-de-Marne department and bordered by the Marnes River and the Seine River. These 2 rivers have helped make Paris the most important commercial and cultural hub in France. Vincenne vacation rentals will put you as close to nature as you can possibly be in a major city. The public park, also know as the right lung of Paris, is twice the size of NYC's Central Park.
