Summer in Paris: three places to enjoy the weather

The garden at Café A

The "Maison de l'architecture en Île-de-France" is located in a former convent, the Couvent des Récollets, just a few meters from the Saint-Martin canal. Its large terraced garden is looked over by 100 year-old trees, making you feel a million miles away from the city. The atmosphere is relaxed, with tables and seating areas as well as numerous deckchairs. When night falls, candles are lit to enhance the cozy atmosphere. It's the ideal place to have a drink, away from the bustling streets of Paris.

The courtyard of the Amour hotel

A stone's throw from the charming rue des Martyrs and the Pigalle district, the Amour hotel is a must-visit. Sitting in a magnificent courtyard overlooked by palm trees and ivy, treat yourself to a tête-à-tête over lunch in this calm and serene setting. August is the perfect month to visit, as the regulars leave on vacation. The ambiance is easy-going, and attracts visitors from around the world who've come to experience this special place. Spend an unforgettable afternoon in this hidden gem at the heart of Paris.

The roof terrace at the Molitor swimming pool

Situated in the chic 16th arrondissement of Paris, the Molitor pool re-opened in 2014 after two and a half years of renovation work. Not just a swimming pool, the complex now includes a hotel and bar as well as a rooftop terrace, perfect for lounging away the hours. Its fabulous view of the Eiffel Tower makes it one of Paris' most popular and historical spots. Relax on a beach chair, tuck into a salad and sip cocktails in the garden. Aromatic herbs and flowers make this a fragrant oasis of peace. After a few laps of the pool, savor the summer spirit of Paris from high above.
