History

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.
