A to Z L'Isle-Adam (Island of Adam)

A to Z Challenge Here
The “Island of Adam” isn’t far from Paris and is loved by many Parisians for a close, fun place to visit in the summer months. We have friends who live in L’Isle-Adam, situated in the Val-d’Oise (north of Paris), on the weekend and work in Paris during the week. Lots of people do this as it gives them a way to make their living and live the life they love at the same time.
The beach!

 L’Isle-Adam is a lovely town with rich history, beautiful architecture, and a beach! It's pool was inaugurated by Johnny Weissmuller (of Tarzan Fame). It’s built upon three islands and has lovely riverside walks and parks.

When I’ve gone, I’ve spent the time with our friends and so haven’t seen as much of the town as I’d like to. Maybe in the future?

Our friend’s place borders the Forêt de L'Isle-Adam, and so they never have to worry about back door neighbors.

Some images from:


  1. "Pearl of the Island of France"--I need to wrap my self around that meaning. Sounds like a fun place.

    1. It is, and so beautiful I can understand why they'd like to think of themselves as the Pearl!

  2. WOW! What a stunningly beautiful place. The top photo, of the path in the forest reminds me of my favourite trail, in Port Moody BC. They could be twins :) Thank you for stirring up the memory.

    1. I've never been to BC, but would love to go!

  3. Wow! Island of Adam is such a gorgeous place. Love your pictures, Lisa!

  4. I'd love to visit this place. It sounds like a great getaway.

  5. What a lovely place! I'd love to visit, alas, for now will enjoy vicariously through your post.
