Hotel near the Jardin des Tuileries
A haven of peace at the heart of Paris
Situated in the very heart of Paris, between the Louvre and Place de la Concorde between the Seine and rue du Rivoli, the Jardin des Tuileries extends over an impressive 23 hectares.
Located close to the hotel, it is the ideal place to stroll among the statues of Rodin, Maillol and Giacometti, relax in the shade of its lofty trees or simply immerse yourself in the history of France. Named a Historical Monument in 1914, it has also been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1991 as part of the banks of the River Seine.
The Garden takes its name from the tile factories that operated in the area when the then queen, Catherine de Medici, commissioned the construction of the Tuileries Palace in 1564 - now long gone. from 1664, the famous gardener of the king, André Le Nôtre, gave the garden its current appearance in the French formal garden style. Initially a private royal garden, it became one of the principal public gardens in Paris in the 17th century. During the 1900s, the hustle and bustle of the Jardin des Tuileries attracted the greatest photographers of the time. To this very day, the garden inspires and welcomes those at the cutting edge of creation.
The gardeners are dedicated to protecting the environment by recycling waste, prohibiting any chemical weedkillers and using insects to control parasites.
The Jardin des Tuileries, the largest and oldest garden in Paris, is a favourite with locals and tourists alike, who enjoy it during their visits to the Louvre, the Jeu de Paume gallery or the Musée de l’Orangerie. And for lovers of candyfloss, rides and thrills there is the Fête des Tuileries every summer.
