The Chantilly estate also houses the Condée Museum, which exhibits famous pictorial works such as Ingres and Delacroix. The estate also contains a forest of more than 6000 hectares as well as a park where an English or Chinese garden can be discovered. The estate can be visited by foot, but also by boat on the canal.
The round town of Noyon has about 15,000 inhabitants and is worth a visit for its 12th century Gothic cathedral.
The city of Beauvais has the cathedral with the highest choir in the world with its vaults over 48 metres high. The medieval-inspired garden of the Maladrerie Saint-Lazare invites visitors to discover its many gardens (Marie, Céréales or Cloitre gardens).
Two other monuments are also worth a visit. The castle of Pierrefonds, which Louis d'Orléans founded in the 15th century, is particularly imposing. Notre Dame de Senlis is a beautiful cathedral you'll also have to put high up on your list.
L'Oise offers many hikes, with its regional nature park, notably from the house in the Parc d'Orry-la-Ville or from the Abbey of Moncel.
There are also pleasant walks to be made to the impressionist gardens in St Paul (particularly colourful and fragrant). Jean Jacques Rousseau's English-style park offers 50 hectares of walking trails.
The Mer de Sable amusement park offers beautiful activities for young and old, with its 8 attractions and its great show.
Finally, the Armistice Museum in Compiègne is worth a visit, especially for the replica of the car 2419D, the car in which the Armistice was signed.
