A post-match nature experience at the Jardin d'Acclimatation

While the players are making the earth shake at Roland Garros, head off to explore the Jardin d'Acclimatation in the Bois de Boulogne near Paris. After one whole year of renovation work, the entire park will finally reopen to the public on 1st June 2018. Immerse yourself in the 18 hectares of this lush oasis in the heart of the city. The more romantically inclined can board a boat and meander through the unspoiled landscape of the “Enchanted River”. If you are more of a sporty type, why not head for the equestrian centre. Having booked your session, climb into the saddle and follow the advice of a professional as you ride around the large indoor school of the park on horseback.

Gourmet treats from chef Hervé Rodriguez

In the evening, after watching a top-flight match at the courts, follow up with some culinary research at MaSa. In this Michelin starred restaurant, the chef Hervé Rodriguez loves to celebrate the ingredients which he chooses daily from local producers. This is why the menu varies regularly but, who knows, you might be able to sample some langoustine chilled with tomato water accompanied by peas and savory. A little gem to finish off a memorable day on the outskirts of Paris.
