Ablon-sur-Seine is a commune in the Val-de-Marne department in the southeastern suburbs of Paris, France. It is located 15.3 km (9.5 mi) from the center of Paris and 8km from the Paris Orly Airport.
First mentioned in the 12th century, Ablon developed as a trading port for timber, coal, and especially Beaujolais wine, but by the 19th century became a resort for the Parisians, a place where they came to spend their holydays and swim in the Seine (while it was still clean). It has kept the same residential character to this day.
Ablon today has a couple of great boulangeries or bakeries, as well a great butcher shop, a bodega and a pharmacy, all within a walking distance of Gare’d Ablon.
There are also a number of restaurants in the neighborhood – Chinese, Japoneese, Portuguese and – of course – French.
