The program of the day: Prestigious castle, medieval towns and large forest area!
Chantilly is world renowned for its castle (sometimes compared to a castle of the Loire), its Great Stables, its porcelain, its lace and its gastronomy (yes the famous cream Chantilly would have been invented here).
An ancient foundation and a royal residence during the Middle Ages. The charming city of Senlis preserves its rich history and has several museums. Its protected environment of 40 ha is particularly appreciated by filmmakers.
After forest of Halatte you cross the "plateau" of Nery but the slope is soft! Béthisy-Saint-Pierre, which is close, is worth a detour.
After following down the Automne river, which gave its name to this valley, called the 35 bell-towers, today’s journey ends the in the forest of Compiègne. A large town bordering the forest, a palace looking out over wooded immensities, these are the first impressions of Compiègne. The city, furrowed by charming shopping streets, has museums with varied collections.
