Île de la Jatte (Jatte Island): the charm of insularity in the heart of the city.


The île de la Jatte is divided between Levallois-Perret and Neuilly-sur-Seine municipalities, on which the vast majority of its surface area is located. The island can be reached via Pont Courbevoie to the south or Pont de Levallois to the north. Two kilometres long, it is located in the extension of Île de Puteaux and constitutes a green oasis in the middle of the Seine. It is bordered on the right bank by Boulevard du Général-Leclerc and on the left bank by the quays of Maréchal-Joffre and President Paul-Doumer.

Quartier Ile de la Jatte - Neuilly-sur-Seine


The island probably bears its name because of its boat shape, with the word “Jatte” referring to this boat. The island was first attached to Neuilly castle, where Louis-Philippe and his family lived. During this period, it was simply used as a park, before passing into the hands of an industrialist in 1877 who also used it to offer a charming countryside patch to his family. Afterwards, Île de la Jatte became a festive place renowned for its guinguettes. Painted by the Impressionists, it became famous and was developed into a chic residential neighbourhood.

Cultural sites

  • Café de la Jatte: located in the northern half of the island, this café symbolises much of its history. It was built at the end of the 19th century by the industrialist Antoine Herzog to be used as an equestrian riding arena. The painter Benjamin Constant rented it out to live in, before the Opera decorations settled there. The present café is thus part of an ancient building.


Local landmarks

  • Maison de la Pêche et de la Nature (The House of Fishing and Nature): this complex, located in the northern part of the island, invites visitors to discover the rich fauna and flora of the Seine banks. An aquarium allows visitors to get as close as possible to the fish to feed and touch them, while the nursery raises awareness about their reproduction methods. Focus is on sheatfish as well as crayfish and turtles.



  • Square Jatte: located on the banks of the Seine, in the southern part of the île de la Jatte, this small open park helps to creating a green and rural atmosphere.
  • Parc de l’île de la Jatte: this large park occupies a big part of the island northern part. It is divided into several sectors, where you can discover an apiary or go for a walk.
  • Jardin du temple de l’Amour: located at the southern end of the île de la Jatte, this garden is distinguished by its elegant stone kiosk called Temple de l’Amour (Temple of Love).
