For a true ‘pieds dans l’eau’ experience.


Guinguettes grew up around Paris in the 18th century, small outdoor bars selling cheap white wine known as ‘guingue’, and originally found mainly along the banks of the Rivers Seine and Marne.

They quickly became popular, particularly on Sundays and holidays – open air taverns, where tired workers could get away from the town, let their hair down after a hard working week, eat, drink, flirt, dance, and relax – a river side outing, simple, local cuisine, live music and a great atmosphere.

Think Renoir, ‘Luncheon of the Boating Party’ and you’ve got it!


With the opening of La Guinguette, charming Catalan couple Fabien and Anicée are fulfilling a dream they have created together – their own little piece of old France nostalgia. Their welcome is warm, their good humour infinite, and their proud smiles a reminder that we should always follow our dreams.
