A village designed by athletes, at the service of performance
Located some 7 km north of the centre of Paris, overlapping the communes of Saint-Denis, Ile Saint-Denis and Saint-Ouen and less than 5 minutes away from the Stade de France, the village will be the epicentre of the Paris 2024 design. Comprised within a radius of 500 m, the compactness of the village makes it functional and ideal for athletes. It includes three main areas: the Olympic Village Plazza, an international zone open onto the Seine river, a residential area around the Cité du Cinéma, and an operational area connected to the road networks (A86 and A1). The village will be served by the future hub of the Greater Paris underground (2 RER and 5 underground lines).
This exceptional 51-hectare site will help athletes perform. Aside from those training at their competition venues, 100% of the athletes will train within 20 minutes from the Village, and 60% of those will train within the Village itself. 85% of athletes will be accommodated less than 30 minutes away from their competition venue.
A welcoming and comfortable place to mix cultures and share experiences.
Centred around the film studio of the Cité du Cinéma, the village includes many recreational areas along the banks of the Seine river. Seven hectares of stretches of water will provide athletes with a serene and relaxing environment before and after competitions.
They will benefit from common services in iconic heritage buildings: The nave of the Cité du Cinéma will house the dining hall, while the Maxwell Hall will house a fitness centre, a café, the information and service centres, etc.
Athletes will also be able to meet in many green areas, including shared gardens on the roofs of the buildings and between the building blocks.
