Senlis will seduce you with its enchanting setting. This small town was the home of archbishops, Kings, Lords of Chantilly, but also deciders of the First World war.

Our walk plunges us into a medieval town with its narrow streets, small shops, charming squares and houses from another time.

We can visit the Notre Dame Cathedral and admire the remains of the Hugues Capet’s castle , the ancestor of the royal Capetians lineage whose last representative, Louis XVI, was beheaded Place de la Concorde in 1793.

Many small bars and bistros will welcome us for a coffee or a drink and good restaurants offer delicious dishes! The city of Senlis organizes in December around Christmas horse-drawn carriage rides. Just Magic!
