This coming Wednesday, December 2, Daniel Perot will lead a walk from
A normal walk, a shorter one and an optional extension.
Distance: 15 kilometers with 3 hills.
The walk will start by crossing the Seine and part of the Parc de Saint-Cloud and then
on to Versailles via the attractive village of Ville-d'Avray where we will
have our lunch facing "les Etangs de Ville-d'Avray".
*We shall meet at 10:00 am by the metro station
Boulogne-Pont-de-Saint-Cloud, last stop on Métro Line 10.*
*Get there - When you get off the train, walk along the quay in the same
direction as the train, go up the steps and take the exit "Musée
Albert-Khan" (to the right).
The meeting place is ten meters from the metro station, at the intersection
of these three streets:
Av. du Maréchal-de-Lattre-de-Tassigny / Rond-point Rhin-et-Danube (the
large roundabout) / and the little Rue du Port.
SHORTER WALK: distance: 6.5 kilometers, with 1 gentle hill.
For those who prefer this distance, you can go and have your lunch "aux
Etangs" with the group, then return to Paris from the station
Sèvres/Ville-d'Avray. (zone 3). The distance from "les Etangs" to your
station is 1.5 km. You will walk in town to reach your station
without your leader, but your guardian angel will not be far.
An OPTIONAL EXTENSION to "Hameau de la Reine" or to the gardens of the Château could be possible (+ 4.5/5
RETURN - There are three stations in Versailles: Versailles Rive-droite,
Versailles Rive-gauche and Versailles-Chantiers for different destinations
in Paris: La Défense, Gare Saint-Lazare // Javel, Invalides, Saint-Michel // Gare Montparnasse.
You will need a picnic lunch and water, and sturdy waterproof shoes as the
forest can be muddy in December.
I'm looking forward to seeing you.
