Napoleon III’s former hunting pavilion, the Chalet des Iles is a jewel in western Paris.

Standing proudly on the great island in the Bois de Boulogne, the Chalet des Iles offers an exceptional bucolic setting. The site has a restaurant and bar open throughout the year.

Created to fulfil Empress Eugénie’s wishes, who had fallen under the charm of a genuine chalet built near Bern, Switzerland, the edifice was dismantled, transported by train, and rebuilt identically at the Emperor’s request on the great island by the lake.

Inside, oak chairs cohabit with guest tables, and generous sofas. The atmosphere is friendly and ideal for a romantic, friendly, or business meal. The dishes are traditional French cuisine associating seasonal vegetables and fruits, authenticity and character.

Outside, on developed terraces, wicker sofas provide a magnificent view of the lower lake and serene nature. If you would like to tour the lake, pretty boats are available for rent upon request.
