Around Paris from Montereau Fault Yonne to Marines
RP 11 Abbaye des Vaux de Cernay
This route will take you around Paris avoiding the notoriously busy Boulevard Périphérique by travelling through the beautiful forest of Fontainebleau, the Haute Vallée de Chevreuse Regional Natural Park and the Vexin Français Regional Natural Park.
If you want to bypass Paris as part of a longer journey, this route can be easily joined from the A5, A6 motorways giving you a stress free journey as you travel north.
The route will take you over the incredibly picturesque bridge at Moret-sur-Loing where there are two ancient mills. This bridge has featured in many fine works of art, most notably Alfred Sisley, a 19c French born British impressionist landscape artist.
Just after crossing the bridge, you will turn into a street that has a great chocolate shop, cheese shop and bakers where you can stock up on some goodies for a picnic lunch.
You will soon be in the beautiful Fontainebleau Forest and at an area size of 19,200 hectares; it is the second largest national forest in France, and for no apparent reason there are 2 open hairpin bends followed by a series of fast flowing bends that seemed to be designed for motorcyclists :) After these bends you have a choice to go straight on at RP 4 and visit the magnificent Chateau Fontainebleau (5 minute detour) or stay with the route. Leaving the forest, the land is very flat and fertile and you will travel through typically French arable countryside, on quiet roads. You will pass through the small town of Étampes and right by a McDonald's where I have suggested a short coffee break before heading towards the Haute Vallée de Chevreuse Regional Natural Park. The former Cistercien monastery; Abbaye des Vaux de Cernay is at RP 11 and even if you don't have time to walk around it, it is only a short detour to take some photo's. RP 14 is at the Etangs de Hollande, a series of artificial ponds created under Louis XIV, at the end of the 17th century, to capture the water of the Rambouillet plateau and contribute to feed the fountains of the park of Versailles. This is one of many good places to stop for your picnic.
The route crosses the mighty river Seine at Épône by using double bridges and then enters the Vexin Français Regional Natural Park, it's picturesque, unspoiled and protected scenery ranges from woods, forests, meadows, fields and hills to marshland, rivers and typical villages, and was a source of inspiration for many Impressionist painters, including Van Gogh, Cézanne and Daubigny. The village of Vigny within the park and the Château de Vigny is where Rihanna made her video for the song "Te Amo".
This route ends at Marine where you can stay for the night or carry on with your journey, for instance the ferry port of Dieppe is only 2 hours away.

I have awarded this route 3 stars*** as the roads, scenery and attractions are all good.
