Deep within the Buttes Chaumont park, the guinguette-style cafe Rosa Bonheur, housed in a listed building, is a popular spot for dancing on fine summer evenings.

Even more unusual, the Chalet des Iles, on the banks of a lake in the Bois de Boulogne, offers a bucolic setting in summer and a cosy setting in winter with its lovely fireplace. There is also the additional charm of having to get to this secret haven by boat.

La Bonne Franquette in Montmartre, will take you back to the time of Van Gogh and Toulouse-Lautrec, with its pretty terrace and garden.

Moulin de la Galette, nearby, is an old windmill that became the haunt of the Impressionists, then a music hall and then a renowned restaurant.
