Château de Versailles
The Yvelines, the ideal destination for your camping holiday
Versailles may have made the Yvelines renowned throughout the world, but it is only one of the many incredible sites to visit! With its 70,000 hectares of forest, innumerable royal châteaux and remarkable parks and gardens, the Yvelines will immerse you deep in the heart of history and nature. And all just a few minutes from Paris! The opportunity you’ve always dreamed of to discover the countryside of the French capital, with a stay in the tree-planted setting of a luxury campsite!
Cottage, tent, campervan or something totally different with a night in a tree-house, the choice is yours! Between two outings to explore the most beautiful scenery in the Yvelines, make the most of your campsite to recharge the batteries and enjoy all your favourite activities right here on-site. Need we mention that the water park is all ready and waiting for you? So come on in, the water’s always lovely in the heated swimming pool, whatever the outdoor temperature!
Visit the Yvelines with the family
Châteaux of kings and counts, from the Middle Ages or the Renaissance, the fabulous monuments of the Yvelines await you for a fairy-tale trip with the kids! First step: Versailles, the most beautiful heritage bequeathed by the kings of France. And not just for its famous Hall of Mirrors and sumptuous gardens! Your little campers will also be able to join in all the children’s activities, organised for them during the holidays. Château life has never been so much fun! Other must-visits during your family stay? The châteaux of Maisons-Lafitte and Saint-Germain-en-Laye, home to the National Archaeology Museum. The ideal opportunity to come and admire its superb collections recounting over 1 million years of history!
Finally, travel back to your childhood at the Château de Breteuil in Choisel and its lifelike scenes from some of the most famous of Perrault’s fairy tales. Come and meet Little Red Riding Hood, Puss in Boots, Cinderella and many more.
Visit the Yvelines as a couple
As the fine weather arrives, the Yvelines become an unbeatable destination for getting out and about on foot, by bike or even by boat. On the banks of the Seine, have fun trying to recognise the scenes painted by Monet, Renoir or Sisley. They all chose the Yvelines as the setting for some of their greatest masterpieces! Leaving from Chatou, follow the impressionists’ trail as you (re)discover their incredible artistic heritage.
All those who love wide open spaces will be able to get back to nature in the 3,500ha of the Saint-Germain-en-Laye forest: perfect to really get away from it all! And to discover the Yvelines without having to lift even the tiniest finger, go with the flow and enjoy a relaxing river cruise on the Seine or the Oise. How better to spend a special moment together, just the two of you!
