Here’s a place where you can let your kids run wild, jump and climb to their hearts’ content without attracting nasty glares from people around you. Acrochats runs two indoor adventure playgrounds just outside of Paris (Thiais and Plaisir), with climbing frames, ball pits and obstacles for kids up to 12 years old. You can also privatize their themed cabins for a birthday party and sit back and relax with a book in their café complete with wifi.

We adore this charming, chalet-style restaurant and event space on its own island in the Bois de Boulogne in the West end of Paris. The voyage there itself is unique – you can row, yes we said row, your way across the lake. Or, you can park and then take a ferry from the public parking area (free for restaurant goers, 1,50€ round-trip for island hoppers). On fine days, you can pack a picnic and find a spot of grass to spread out. Or, you can book a brunch at their elegant restaurant.
