Since it is so often associated to Paris, people tend to forget that the Ile-de-France region contains many areas that are still quite rural in aspect.
You will have countless occasions to discover its rich architectural, natural and artistic heritage. The Chevreuse, Yvette and Essonne valleys, as well as the forests of Rambouillet, Saint-Germain and Sénart, have many surprises in store for nature lovers. There is something for everyone, from the Desert of Retz to the troglodytic church of Haute-Isle, in the Vexin; from the mills of the Viorne to the river port of Conflans-Sainte-Honorine; the Maurice ravel museum in Montfort-l'Amaury and the Pissaro museum in Pontoise.
This is one of the birthplaces of Gothic architecture and some of its greatest masterpieces can be found here. The castles and palaces create an immense "kings' garden" whose grace combines wonderfully with the sumptuous sunlight. Places such as Fontainebleau, Provins, Saint-Germain-en-Laye and Versailles, which played such important roles in the destiny of France, still stand guard over their glorious past.
