In which of these parks in Paris will you picnic with your kids?

If you are you looking for a place where you can picnic with your family, and where your children can have fun while you enjoy a breathtaking view, we have what you need! Here are 3 Parisian parks which perfectly fit these criteria.

picnic with family in park bellevillePark de Belleville: This one is full of green spaces, with 1200 trees and his lawn of 1000m², and is located in the 20th district, between the Buttes-Chaumont and Pere Lachaise. But you will find a very particular thing over there: a 30-meters-high terrace, from which you will enjoy a panoramic view of Paris’ monuments.

 Address: 47 rue des Couronnes, 75020 PARIS

Opening times: 7/7, from 8:00 a.m. (9:00 a.m. on weekends) to 9:30 p.m.


park monceau in paris 8 with childrenPark Monceau: Near the Champs Elysées, this park has remained unchanged since the time of Napoleon III. Enter through by the large gates of gold and wrought iron and you’ll be surprised by the quietness: the park is completely isolated thanks to the huge trees and luxury buildings that surround it. You’ll like to sit with your kids at the foot of the statues, or also let them romp in the playground, or during a fairground ride or a pony ride.


Address: 35 boulevard Courcelles, 75008 PARIS

Opening times: 7/7, from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.

picnic with family in paris bercyPark de Bercy: This park includes 3 gardens along the Seine and is well-known for its huge expanses of grass, so you will not have trouble finding a place for a picnic with your family. Besides, the park has many facilities for children: playgrounds, carousels, pony rides, fountains and snacks to take away. You can also go to the restaurant Les 400 Coups, which is very close to the park. Finally, two baby relays are at your disposal near Quai de Bercy.


Address: 128 quai de Bercy, 75012 Paris

Opening times: 7/7, from 8:00 a.m. (9:00 a.m. on weekends) to 9:30 p.m.

You want to rent a car seat, but don’t know which to choose?


Before discovering the different child seats that we rent, ask yourself the following questions:

rental car seat Paris

What is the weight of my child? This is important to know, as the seat type will be determined by the weight of the child.

Which car are we going to use? Does it have the Isofix system? Will we have the same car for the duration of our stay?

Now that you have determined your needs, here is the list of car seats available to rent.


All of the Car Seats that we rent have been chosen because in addition to meeting the highest safety standard, they are comfortable, easy to install and use.

2) rent car seat Chicco ElletaCar seats 0/+ 1: Chicco Eletta and Graco Junior Mini are suitable for newborns. They recline, making them very comfortable and include back supports which are easily adjustable in height, an anti-rebound bar for maximum safety and a 5 point harness for increased security.

Please note that up to 9kg these must be installed in a rear facing position.

For children over 12 kg (1 year old ) up to 18 kg (about 4 years old ) :

The advantage : the installation is also possible with 3-point safety belt, if you do not have the Isofix system.

[family holidays in Paris] Christmas break in Paris with toddlers

Today I have the pleasure of inviting Agnes and Olivia, the founders of Familin’Paris to share their recommendations for a magical Christmas in Paris with toddlers. Here are their suggestions.

Christmas of course is a magical time for children. At this peculiar time of the year, Paris turns itself to million of lights and really becomes the City of Light for the delight of youngs and olders as well. So let’s dress warmly our todlers and let them admire the Christmas lights.

Some ideas and suggestions to enjoy Paris at Christmas time with young children:

Without question, the Champs-Elysées illuminations are the most famous and most beautiful ones. Do not miss them. As you are on the Champs-Elysées, don’t forget to give a small hook by Disneystore shop (44 Avenue. Champs Élysées), a key shopping store in the neighborhood. The smallest will be fascinated in front of their favorite heroes.

At end of the stroll, they are offered an apple candy or cotton candy as they pass through the many Christmas markets.festival-merveilleux-2014-180

For the more adventurous, we recommend a ride on the big wheel at the Place de la Concorde. One of the best way to see Paris from above and to please mom and dad …

Another must to be done at this time of the year in Paris is to take a look at the windows of the Department stores : you can see them at the Galeries Lafayette, Printemps and Bon Marché. They are gorgous and different each year.

For all children, Paris offers free rides on carrousels in all of its “arrondissements” : one can choose between wooden horses or rockets. It depends on your style !

And because it is rarely open to the public, do not miss The Wonderful Festival at the Carnival Arts Museum (musée des arts forains). There, you will find beautiful old carousels on which children have the right to climb exceptionally.


Erratum December 11th: we announced “Jour de Fête au Grand Palais” but Grand Palais does not transform into a funfair but into a giant skating rink. We apologize for this mistake.



paris with kidsAbout Familin’Paris :

Familin’Paris is a website designed for those traveling to Paris with their children.
Olivia and Agnes are the two co-founders of Familin’Paris.
They’ve known each other for a long time and wanted to change career and embark on a joint project.
They are both mothers and travelers and experience has shown them that usual tour guides do not always meet expectations regarding travels with kids. Therefore, the idea of a website that would help families who want to explore, visit and enjoy Paris with their children was obvious. Familin’Paris was launched in 2013.
