Hôtel du Fort is the perfect starting point for exploring Île-de-France's culture and tourism, not to mention the nearby Normandy region. Here are some of the main sites to visit:
Our region is full of activities and attractions. Enjoy outdoor walks or take part in cultural events.
Our hotel is only 3 km away from a golf course (18 holes) and a swimming pool.
Water sports enthusiasts need not panic, as the Seine offers a whole world of nautical activities, including sailing, canoeing and more. Our region abounds in history and cultural heritage, yet it also offers a wealth of activities in the midst of a verdant landscape.
Saint-Germain-en-Laye, which is another royal town, also bore witness to French royalty's splendour. Saint-Germain-en-Laye's estate captured the heart of Louis XIV, who would stay until his departure for Versailles. He built a Renaissance-style courtyard and erected a chapel which is now the National Archaeology Museum, housing one of the world's largest prehistoric art collections. The Domaine National's terraces and gardens offer a picturesque stroll, as does the Maurice Denis departmental museum and its garden, or the Claude Debussy house and museum!
At just 21 km from the hotel, discover Thoiry's African reserve, zoological park and castle.
A memorable getaway awaits you.
The Château de Thoiry regularly hosts the Festes de Thalie's concert-shows and Orpheon's baroque concerts directed by gambist and collector, José Vázquez. Alongside the "Brillamment Baroque" festival's concerts, courses and master-classes take place every year during the French spring vacations, or, in some cases, during the February holidays, at the local primary school. Agrémens, a shorter session, also takes place in November in conjunction with a concert-show.
Visit Monet's home, the garden of Giverny, and the Museum of Impressionism to reconnect with French history.
Claude Monet moved to the village in 1883, first renting a house and then buying it in 1890. He changed the shape of the house and completely redesigned the orchard into a flower garden. In 1893, he had the water lily pond dug on a branch of the Epte, on the banks of which he painted the "Water Lilies" series. He died on December 5, 1926 and is buried in the cemetery next to the church. During this period, several painters, including Americans like Mary Fairchild, settled in the village and some became friends with Claude Monet. Gérald van der Kemp, who renovated Monet's house and gardens, died in 2001. He is buried not far from Monet.
