Forêt d'Orient

5 min (3,0 km)


The nature park

The Regional Nature Park of La Forêt d’Orient stretches from the region of Paris to the south of the Champagne.

This nature park of water and forest boasts a great number of landscapes that inspired painters like Auguste Renoir. This area of lakes and ponds, dominated by oak-trees, will be a delight to nature lovers and bird amateurs, as the park houses thousands of birds. The site of the Regional Nature Park Forêt d'Orient and the area offer many outings for couples or families, independently or accompanied by a guide, by bike, on foot or horse...


Lac d’Orient

The Lac du Temple, Lac Amance and Lac d’Orient are located at the heart of the Regional Nature Park La Forêt d’Orient. They were created from 1960 to 1990 to control the level of the Seine river.

Today, they form an exceptional environment!

At the Lac d’Orient in particular, you’ll find a wide range of water sports and angling activities:

  • Pedal boats, canoes and electric boats

  • Special fishing boats

  • At the sailing club: catamaran - windsurfing boards - kayaks - hire of bicycles and mountain bikes

  • You can also make a mini cruise on the lake

The Maison des Lacs welcomes you and offers you all the material you need for the various activities around the lake.

Observing the fauna

A 2.5 km track will take you to the heart of a green nature site…

With a little patience and luck, while posting at one of the three observatories, you can see the migratory birds resting before they take off to the African heat.
