“What a find - St Germain en Laye, at the end of the suburban RER line”
Reviewed December 4, 2011

What a magnificently restored Chateau (1539) in which to house such an interesting archeological collection (from 800,000 years ago) and so close to Paris. And then there are the 3500 hectares of gardens & grounds in which to walk, including forest. It was a crisp autumn day, with the distant view, across the river, to Paris and the top of the Eiffel tower! The sun through the chapelle windows was most beautiful. The town itself is also interesting.
Be warned if walking in the grounds, there are NO toilets out here! Not even at the food stall which was good quality and variety! Be prepared to spend the day. We went on a week day, enjoyed the lack of crowds, the birds, squirrels and peace & quiet!
