French heritage and countryside just a stone's throw from Paris

Living Here

Seine-et-Marne is the largest département within the Paris Region in terms of area.  Complementing the activity of its main cities and industrial and service centres are 1,800 km of waterways (with four rivers including the Seine and the Marne and several canals), 30,000 ha of woodland and 28,000 ha of natural habitat.  National parks such as the Gâtinais Park and the Fontainbleau Forest, amongst others, offer the possibility of numerous countryside walks.

Seine-et-Marne is also home to a large number of historical sites such as the medieval town of Provins, the Episcopal City of Meaux and the Fontainebleau and Vaux-le-Vicomte castles.

Such historical and natural attractions are complimented by the Disneyland Paris theme park, which attracts over 15 million visitors each year from all over Europe.

France is famous for its excellent cuisine and Seine-et-Marne offers a large number of eating experiences.  The region is also famous for its production of cheese, in particular the well-known Brie.

Seine-et-Marne has already welcomed over 450 foreign companies to the region, as well as numerous other foreign individuals including a large student population.  This means that whilst one can appreciate all the joys of a French lifestyle in Seine-et-Marne, there is also a cosmopolitan atmosphere to welcome those who are looking to settle here.

Last but not least, it is not to be forgotten that Seine-et-Marne is on the doorstep of Paris, allowing all those who live here easy access to one of Europe’s most beautiful capital cities, with its wealth of heritage, attractions and entertainment possibilities.
