“Peaceful picnics in the Compiegne forest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Great for cycling and picnicing, the routes are fairly flat but with a few undulations for a bit of fitness. They are dedicated cycle routes not on the road.

“Perfect for bicycle trips”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2012

Just bring your bike next time! A round tour Compiègne - Pierrefonds - Compiègne is a nice thing to do. Unfortunately the city of Compiègne is rather under developed, no bicycle lanes.

“Very nice urban forest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2012

This is the third largest forest in France, and and is crisscrossed with trails for walking, jogging, biking and horses. On a four hour walk in late May, the wildflowers were impressive. Great place for a break from sightseeing and crowded streets. We were with French friends, who told us that maps are available, probably at the Palace but your hotel ought to know where to get one.

“A really beautiful area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2012

An area of France I knew nothing about until our visit. So close to Calais and Paris - really worth considering visiting for a weekend break. Wil defianately return.
