Walk around the ponds of Holland

A pleasant walk around the ponds of Holland in the forest of Rambouillet at 1 hour from Paris.

There are several ways to go to the ponds of Holland, you can pass for example by Perray-en-Yvelines then follow the arrows indicating the ponds of Holland. The ponds of Holland are a series of ponds located next to each other. It is easy to go around them by passing on a forest path, one can easily modulate the length of the stroll. A particularity: the presence of a leisure base and a beach for swimming. The facilities are still of a very family level, it is not the great luxury but it remains very pleasant for a Sunday afternoon at the water's edge in full summer. If you are in the area you can make a small detour to see the ponds of Holland.

The leisure center is small compared to the one in Cergy-Pontoise. There is really only activity during the months of July and August. The quality of the facilities is affected by this.
