The smallest region of France that encircles Paris and is home to many world-famous attractions. If you want a busy holiday then this is the place for you.

There is a splendid château at Fontainebleau set in a vast forest with marked routes for ramblers and mountain bike trails or you can even take a guided tour on horseback through the rolling countryside.
