Pocket Guide: Essonne

Visit Essonne

Named after the Essonne River, the department of Essonne lies to the south of Paris in the region of Ile-de-France.

The northern section of Essonne is part of the greater Paris area, and as such is densely populated and urban. On the other hand, the southern part of the department is largely rural and home to scenic rolling countryside, valleys, forests and rivers, along with many magnificent parks, gardens and castles.

A major satellite area of Paris brings together the towns of Brières-les-Scellés, Morigny-Champigny, and the historic and artistic centre of Étampes, which lies on the picturesque river Chalouette.

Essone’s Medieval highlights include the 13th-century town of Dourdan, a former royal capital with a small fortified chateau, plus a covered market and several Gothic churches.

Smaller gems like the charming village of Milly-la-Foret are also worth exploring. Here you can visit the former home of French poet and illustrator Jean Cocteau, or examine the 1,500 botanical specimens at the National Conservatory of Fragrant, Medicinal and Aromatic Plants.

Best Things to Do in Essonne

No trip to Essonne is complete without a visit to a chateau, and this department has several standout options to choose from. Built in the late 18th century in the commune of Le Val-Saint-German, Le Marais Castle is an extraordinary example of neo-Classical architecture, with a moat, a windmill, and a 40-hectare garden.

Alternatively, pay a visit to the handsome 1676-built Chateau de Courson in the commune of Courson-Monteloup. Its English-style park is full of century-old camellia, magnolia and lilac trees and makes a wonderful setting for an afternoon stroll.

A more off-radar tourist attraction is the French Gatinais Regional Nature Park, part of which falls inside the department of Essonne. Here, in the village of Boutigny-sur-Essonne, you can take a tour of the Gatinais Honey Farm and learn about the honey-making process and the life of honey bees.

Essonne Hotels and Where to Stay in Essonne

Paris’s Orly International Airport is partly in Essonne and partly in the neighbouring department of Val-de-Marne, though many of its airport hotels lie on the Essonne side. Here you’ll find properties ranging from well-known mid-range and luxury chain hotels, to modern budget-friendly accommodation slightly further afield.

You’ll find more Essonne hotels in the commune of Palaiseau, not far from École Polytechnique, a major institution of higher education and research. Founded during the French Revolution, the institution boasts three Nobel prize winners and three presidents of France among its alumni. Accommodation in Palaiseau ranges from popular brands like Novotel and Tulip Inn, to convenient apartment for extended stays.

Further south, into the more rural part of Essonne, you’ll find hotels in Dourdan, Étampes, and smaller villages such as Boulancourt and Malesherbes. Accommodation here is often independently owned and operated, with atmospheric guest rooms and public areas. Some are even set in stately castles or other historic buildings, and offer golf courses, restaurants, conference facilities and wedding services. Use Expedia’s search tool to compare all the different options on offer, and find the hotel in Essonne that’s right for you.
