They are part of the "Chemin des Impressionnistes" itinerary on which you will find around thirty paintings by the artists who lived or stayed in the region.
Continue along the Seine on Berge de la Prairie.
Pass under Bougival bridge and follow Quai de l'Ecluse to Le Pecq.

You'll pass close to the water supply ponds where an area has been set aside for the protection of wildlife.
On arrival at Le Pecq, continue along Quai de l'Orme Sully.
Pass under Le Pecq bridge. On your left is Ile Corbière.
