Description

Between Paris and Normandy, the French Vexin is a vast natural space mixing wooded and agricultural areas. This territory, which for a long time was the breadbasket of Paris, has seen its landscape shaped by mankind through the creation of fields and agricultural villages composed of farms that can still be seen along the roads.

But this natural park composed of valleys, orchards, limestone hills, meadows and woods is above all a refuge for the fauna and flora of the Northwest Parisian. Rivers and streams are its natural borders with the highlight: the Seine Valley whose view is breathtaking from the heights. The sheer diversity of animals that inhabit the area, including the many birds in the wetlands, is a delight for lovers of the living world. Discover these wonders of nature during your hiking, cycling or riding excursions marked out and organized in the park. You can also enjoy water-based activities or its 8 golfs.

With its castles and museums, you can also combine nature with culture, especially in Auvers-sur-Oise, where Impressionism and the last days of Van Gogh are commemorated. Discover small museums that will introduce you to the different agricultural trades as well as an archaeology museum, which proves the very old human presence in these places. And in enchanting settings, the châteaux and domains of Ambleville, La Roche-Guyon and Villarceaux are revealed to the delight of your eyes.
