Night One – Montargis
Heading west, 60km from our depot in Veron is the city of Montargis. Montargis is made up of a series of canals, bridges and the sits on the Loing river. Sometimes called the “Venice of the Gâtinais” for this reason.
There is plenty to see and do including a visit to the Château de Lisledon dating back to before 1162. Take a boat trip on the canal or simply stroll along the water’s edge. For a little more culture, drop in to the Musée Girodet en route.
Night Two – Forêt de Fontainebleau
Palace de Fontainebleau, France.
On the second day take the beautifully scenic route north along the Loing River up to the Forêt de Fontainebleau. A drive of just ~65km. Nestled in the stunning scenery is the Château de Fontainebleau, one of the largest Royal castles in France. It comprises of 1500 rooms and over 130 acres of parkland and gardens to enjoy.
Quite unbelievably this close to Paris, the surrounding National Park includes over 22,000 hectares of woodland. Plenty of space to park up your motorhome and put on those walking boots!
Night Three – Montereau-fault-yonne
Sitting on the Yonne river is the town of Montereau-fault-yonne. Famous for the “Collegial Notre-Dame et Saint-Loup”, a 12th Century Gothic and Renaissance style Church. If you prefer to swap the campervan kitchen for a meal out there are over 100 restaurants in the area to choose from!
An option to consider when deciding where to spend the night is this from Home Campers. A stunning spot to park up your motorhome, right on the Yonne river bank.
The return drive to the depot is merely an hour’s commute (50Km) from Montereau, so there’s no need to rush on your final day.
Once you have dropped off your campervan, if you want to squeeze in a little more into your short-break, why not take the brief train ride up to the centre of Paris and spend a night or two in the romantic capital.
