Turn your city break into a microadventure 

Paris: Wild camping in the Forest of Fontainebleau 


A weekend in Paris is a wonderful thing.  But you can throw a bit of surprise and adventure into your time in the iconic, recognisable city scenes by jumping on a train (40 minutes from Gare de Lyon) out to spend a night in a bivvy in the beautiful Forest of Fontainebleau. The forest's oak, pine and beech trees spread for more than 100 square miles. 
There is also great scope for bouldering if you enjoy that, with huge numbers of climbs available on the unusual rock formations dotted throughout Fontainebleau.  There are so many climbs that it can be a little overwhelming. Just pick one spot and enjoy it! There are guidebooks for climbing in the forest if you are keen to do more than dabble. Bas Cuvier and Apremont are both popular. 

Level of Difficulty: Medium (if you're going to bivvy).  

What to pack: Warm clothes (check the weather forecast!), woolly hat, headtorch, raingear, sleeping bag, mat and bivvy bag. 

Best time to go: late spring or early summer.

There really is nowhere quite like Paris. New York may have the buzz and London may have the nightlife, but Paris has the romance, the architecture and the food.  The ‘City of Light’ has long been the preferred city break destination for doe-eyed couples who come for the unrivalled architecture, the quality of its restaurants and romantic night cruises down the River Seine.

 

But there is more to Paris than just the language of love. This place is also the capital of fashion, haute cuisine and is one of the most culturally rich cities in the world. Paris is full of galleries dripping with artistic masterpieces and streets filled with some of the most iconic buildings in the world. Anyone fancy a trip to the top of the Eiffel Tower, or a walk along the Champs Elysées with its endless array of designer stores?

Shopping


If you're enjoying a romantic stroll, be sure to waltz through 19th century Paris via Passage Jouffroy. Its glass-covered roof, iron structure and chequered tiles have all preserved their original charm. The shopping passage is crammed with bookshops and quaint tea rooms, ideal for the modern day flâneur. 10 - 12 boulevard Montmartre, 75009.


Window shopping is something of a national sport in France. To take part when in Paris, we'd suggest sprinting to La Passerelle, a cute concept store ideal for indulging your imagination. Gorgeous organic cotton scarves, porcelain coffee cups, sexy stationary and and hip backpacks should do the trick. 48 bis Quai de Jemmapes, 75010.


Charity shops are a rare thing in Paris, but second hand store Bis Boutique Solidaire has got the right idea. Its goal is to provide jobs and act as a springboard back into professional life for many. They also donate clothes to partner organisations. bisboutiquesolidaire.fr


Concept store Empreintes is the epitome of the artsy vibe found in the Haut-Marais neighbourhood. It feels more like a gallery than a shop thanks to its spot on curation and gorgeous, unique pieces (including pottery, lights and cabinets of curiosities). empreintes-paris.com


Biérocratie will have beer amateurs and connoisseurs hopping with joy. With new offerings sourced from French brasseries and further afield, you're sure to find just what you need to jazz up your evening aperitif. 32 rue de l'Espérance, www.bierocratie.com


Where you're vegan or not, you'll love the cheesy treats available at Jay & Joy, a vegan fromagerie in the heart of Paris. Choose from an array of vromages (vegan cheeses) and joy gras (vegan foie gras). We love the jeta herbes, little feta-like cubes of joy peppered with garlic and fresh herbs to jazz up your salads. jay-joy.com

Sightseeing


Missed the chance to celebrate David Hockney's 80th birthday by checking out his retrospective at the Tate London? Fear not, because the party continues at Paris's Centre Pompidou. Reflect upon the British artist's dazzling depictions of LA swimming pools, and contemplate the increasingly important role that technology plays in his oeuvre. Until 23 October 2017. www.centrepompidou.fr


What better way to fall for Paris than by waltzing through the city during the belle époque and les années folles? The exhibition Bons Baisers de Paris par Léon Zeytline (1885-1962) at the Musée Fournaise allows you to do just that. Some 60 paintings show off iconic spots such as the Grands Boulevards and the Moulin Rouge. Catch it before 5 November 2017, www.musee-fournaise.com


What picnic wouldn't be improved by a spot of live classical music? From 5 August to 17 September the Parc Floral de Paris will play host to 14 open air concerts as part of the Classique au Vert festival. classiqueauvert.paris.fr


See the wardrobe of iconic singer and actress Dalida, at the Palais Galliera exhibition 'Dalida, A Wardrobe from the City to the Stage'. The pieces on show, from a red Jean Dessès Hollywood gown to a Balmain pinafore dress, are almost as dazzling as the star herself. palaisgalliera.paris.fr


French fashion fans are going gaga for the 'Balenciaga, l'oeuvre au noir' exhibition at the Musée Bourdelle. Pieces from the Palais Galliera shed light on the importance of black in designer Cristóbal Balenciaga's work. All month, bourdelle.paris.fr.


Animal lovers of all ages should take a walk on the wild side at the Bébés Animaux exhibition at the Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie. Especially designed for kids from the ages of two to seven, the exhibition is an invitation to explore the lives of baby animals, from birth to protecting themselves in their natural habitat. Little ones can build a bird's nest and learn the art of camouflage. cite-sciences.fr

Key Areas


...to a secret Parisian garden, accessible via a hidden doorway just off Place des Vosges in the Marais district. The courtyard behind the Hôtel de Béthune-Sully is an oasis of calm and well worth a stroll through - if only for its magnificent, vine-lined walls.


Parisians are embracing the made in France movement. We love Ambrym, a charming boutique that's a one-stop shop for sustainable, locally made threads. It sells T-shirts and tote bags in organic cotton, with intricate designs. www.ambrym.fr


Fashionistas on a budget should check out Violette & Léonie. Forget sifting through rails of dusty granny frocks and stained T-shirts, this concept store carefully selects its pieces, leaving you with an overwhelming choice of nearly new gems. 114 rue de Turenne, 75003. www.violetteetleonie.com


Located on the oh-so-chic rue Amélie, Mayaro is a luxury men's concept store, an art gallery and a celebration of local design and gastronomy. A team of top-notch artisans and craftsmen come together here, lovingly creating a whole host of beautiful things you never knew you needed. Meteorite-inspired cuff links, anyone? 20 rue Amélie, 75007; mayaro.fr .


No window shopping jaunt in the Marais neighbourhood would be complete without a trip to chic home and design store Fleux. Featuring hand-picked designers such as Ferm Living, this place's striking prints and minimal mood lighting will have you mentally redecorating in seconds. 52 rue Sainte Croix de la Bretonnerie 75004, fleux.com.
