Nanterre—a contemporary stay with a cosmopolitan edge

Most of Paris is pretty hip, and Nanterre is no exception. Although it has grown a lot in recent years, Nanterre has kept its beautiful old heritage, while adding a more cosmopolitan edge. Nanterre's known for its modern architecture, green spaces, and a burgeoning arts scene, so there's no shortage of things to see and do. What's more, the city's proximity to central Paris means that Nanterre vacation rentals make ideal bases to explore the French capital's top attractions, including the Arc de Triomphe, Eiffel Tower, and Galeries Lafayette.

Rocking out in the capital's newest stadium

As you'd expect of a city with such a diverse population, there are international restaurants to satisfy every taste in Nanterre. There are also charming boutiques, patisseries, and old-school cafes, as well as some seriously hip bars and nightclubs. Nanterre is the perfect spot for sports and music fans alike. The ultramodern U Arena opened in Nanterre in late 2017. Although it's home to Racing 92 rugby club, this 32,000 capacity stadium has already hosted major music concerts.

There's nothing grander than La Grande Arche

Much of La Defense business district lies within Nanterre's boundaries, and the city has a contemporary feel and look. Nothing epitomises this more than La Grande Arche. Regarded as a modern version of the Arc de Triomphe, La Grande Arche is 360 feet high, 360 feet wide and 360 deep. Despite its spectacular appearance, it's a commercial building with a rooftop restaurant and an exhibition area. Nanterre is a short distance from central Paris, and within 7 miles of the Arc de Triomphe, the Eiffel Tower, and Moulin Rouge theater.

Nanterre's perfectly splendid summers

Nanterre's weather is like its inhabitants—pretty diverse. Nanterre's oceanic climate means it experiences mild conditions for most of the year. Spring and autumn weather is moderate and changeable, with warm and cold spells bringing unseasonable conditions. Winters are cool and damp with daytime highs in the mid-40s in December and January. Summers in Nanterre are pleasantly warm, and with daily highs in the upper 70s, so July and August are 2 of the best months to book Nanterre vacation rentals.

Enjoy a tranquil walk in an urban forest

Despite its urban location, Nanterre is quite close to numerous forests, botanical gardens, and national parks. The tranquil Malmaison Forest is only 3 miles away from downtown Nanterre. Bought by the Empress Josephine in 1800, Malmaison Forest covers more than 500 acres, and is crisscrossed by splendid tree-lined paths. It's very popular with walkers and joggers, and when the sun comes out, makes an ideal picnic spot. And the lake of Saint-Cucufa is an perfect place to rest, breathe in the fresh air, and watch the ducks go by.
