The Bois de Boulogne played an important role in our Paris séjour, since it was close to the apartment we rented on rue des Belles Feuilles in the 16th. First of all, every morning we ran a couple loops around the lake in the park for our daily exercise. Then, one day we rented a row boat and spent a couple of hours rowing all around the lake, nestling up to the bank under a weeping willow tree for a pique-nique of Asiatique delights that we had purchased at the elegant Président Wilson Market that morning. And, finally, one evening we hopped onto the small lake ferry for the two-minute crossing to the bucolic island restaurant called Le Châlets des Îles (Tél: 01.42.88.04.69), where we had dinner on the terrace overlooking the lake.
