Le Pecq / Conflans

[ Cycle route The Avenue Verte London <> Paris ] [ Paris and the Impressionists' Seine , The London-Paris cycle route around Saint-Germain-en-Laye ]
  • 16.8 km
  • famille Level family

The proud historic boatmen's town of Conflans-Ste-Honorine stands at the confluence of the Oise River and the Seine. Take care because of the uneven road surface around here. A footbridge carries you across the Seine into the Forest of St-Germain-en-Laye, cutting out a meander in the river, taking you across to the waterside town of Maisons-Laffitte. The Seine then becomes your companion heading south.

Itinerary

After crossing the Seine via the footbridge at Conflans, you soon enter the Forest of St-Germain-en-Laye. Here, take the beautiful forest track from the Etang du Corra (Corra Lake) to Maisons-Laffitte. The route through this town is not signposted, but head for Sartrouville on the opposite bank of the Seine. Then a cycle track allows you to follow the Seine south once more.

The Forest of St-Germain-en-Laye                                                                      

The Forest of St-Germain-en-Laye

This state-owned forest covers 3,500 hectares and is made up mostly of oaks and beeches. For many centuries, it was a royal forest and hunting ground – the French kings often stayed at the Château de Saint-Germain-en-Laye, where Louis XIV was in fact born. The castle, from the 16th century, and the Sainte-Chapelle, from the 13th century, were built on the edge of the forest. Magnificent gardens were laid out around the castle, including the Parc Régulier, conceived with great care by the famed 17th-century designer André Le Nôtre, and the Jardin Irrégulier, created in the 19th century, plus a long terrace (see photo opposite) looking down on the Seine and across western Paris. Thanks to a beautiful forest cycle track, you can appreciate the treasures of this exceptional forest set in the Yvelines département.
