Description

Located in the north of Paris and overlying Paris Region and the Hauts-de-France, this is a vast territory of 60,000 hectares of nature including 20,000 hectares of forests that is for you to enjoy. In the Oise - Pays de France Regional Natural Park, the large forests (Ermenonville, Halatte and Chantilly) and woods coexist with the sandy areas and lawns of limestone hills that the park has for mission to preserve.

These areas are home to a rich and ecologically interesting fauna and flora. A biodiversity also made up of marshes, wet meadows and swamps that are the main features of this natural park.

This country has also witnessed the passing of history since the Polished Stone Age, as shown by the many troglodyte and gallo-roman relics discovered during excavations and displayed in its archaeology museums. The Capetian and Merovingian kings have left their mark through the castles and religious buildings they have built such as the Château de Chantilly, the Royal City of Senlis and the magnificent Royaumont Abbey. A more intimate heritage composed of lavoirs, fountains and calvaries, can be discovered along the hiking paths accessible in the park.

Its visit is recommended by many painters and writers such as Watteau, Corot, Cézanne or Dumas who, in awe, made it their holiday destination and inspiration for their works.
