Paris-Saclay is a magical fusion of two worlds. On the one hand, a knowledge hub looking to the future, packed with technology. On the other, a green setting at the gateway to the Vallée de Chevreuse, perfect for zen walks. This world-famous university and science park is just 15 km from Paris, in the Essonne département. With more than 318,000 inhabitants and a booming economy, Paris-Saclay has managed to maintain an exceptional quality of life, its own little corner of paradise in the Paris Region.

Cycling enthusiasts will have a field day on the Véloscénie, hurtling down undulating landscapes at top speed.
