Seine-et-Marne Property Listings and Info

For buying and selling property in Seine-et-Marne

Rural Paris

The Seine-et-Marne is the largest department in the Ile-de-France. It encompasses a number of stately chateaux, charming towns, plenty of peaceful countryside and of course, Eurodisney. White wine is produced in the slightly warmer south of the department. The Seine and its many tributaries make their way from the southeast of the Seine-et-Marne towards the capital.

A quieter Versailles

Fountainebleau, located towards the south of the department, is home to one of France's most impressive chateau. Those who have visited Versailles will recognise similar architectural features. However, Fountainebleau is also Versailles without the tourists. The chateau started off as a hunting lodge but gradually evolved as different monarchs added to the property. An evening in the town is not short of distractions for visitors fo all ages - you will certainly have little trouble picking out a fine restaurant or bar to relax in. On the outskirts of the town you'll find one of France's largest forests, popular with Parisians wanting to picnic, walk, rock climb or pick mushrooms.

The town of roses

In the 13th century, Provins was an important trading town and, architecturally at least, very little has changed to the present day. The medieval ramparts, ancient buildings and cobbled streets combine to give the town a pleasant, archaic feel. Provins is also decorated throughout with roses. The flowers adorn the houses, line the streets and even provide the crucial ingredient in a number of local specialities and medicines.

Capital of cuisine

Meaux, located in the very north of the department on a sharp bend in the river Marne, is famed for its culinary expertise. Mustard and Brie cheese are its main exports. The locals are very proud of their history and culture and hold a son et lumiere show every year featuring a large cast of locals who tell the town's story. Meaux has a 12th century Cathedral St-Etienne with a fantastic public garden.

How to get there

Getting to and from Seine-et-Marne is extremely easy. Paris' two airports, d'Orly and Charles de Gaulle, both offer regular flights to and from the UK. The nearest ferry ports, ideal for those wanting to bring a car, are Dieppe, Calais and Le Havre. Alternatively, you can catch the Eurostar from London to Paris and then take a local train to the Seine-et-Marne.

Seine-et-Marne property prices

Unfortunately, property anywhere that is near to the capital is priced at well above the national average. However, this does mean that you can take advantage of all that Paris has to offer....
