Around Paris – The beautiful Ile de France

Despite what Parisians might think, there’s a whole world outside the city borders to explore in an Avis hire car. Central Paris is beautiful, but there you can easily see another side to it: the green forests where the French kings used to hunt, nearby Normandy, home to crêpes and cider and chic racing in Chantilly.







Test drive this two-day tour for the best of the Ile de France.

Pick up your Avis vehicle from our car hire location at Gare du Nord Paris if you arrive by Eurostar or at any of the Paris airports. Motor through the countryside to elegant Chantilly for a day at the races, then spend your winnings buying souvenir bottles of champagne to take home, in the cellars of Reims and the Marne Valley, within easy drive of the city. Feeling active? Try your hand at rock-climbing in the royal forest of Fontainebleau before taking coun­try lanes to the village of Gallardon and a meal fit for a king. Wind up your motoring holiday with a stroll around the overwhelmingly grand palace of Versailles before heading back to the airport. Drop off your hire car in Paris at any of the airports or Eurostar terminal or check other locations for Avis Rent a Car in Paris
