33,17 km cycling route from Rambouillet to Maintenon

The Saint-Jacques cycling route begins through the English garden of Domaine de Rambouillet to reach the Guéville valley, bordered by its small roads. Halfway there, you will discover the medieval city of Epernon, "Petite Cité de Caractère" perched at the confluence of three rivers. Shortly afterwards, the entrance to the royal valley of the Eure offers a country walk on the road to the castle of Maintenon which sheltered the loves of the Sun King and Madame de Maintenon.
