Maulette Chateau

Vaucouleurs Valley

This tributary of the left bank of the Seine River stretches over 21.9 kilometers from Boissets where it rises up to Mantes. As its name suggests, "the colorful valley," so appreciated by the golfers, is one of the prettiest valleys of the Pays Houdanais. The Vaucouleurs can be subject to sudden floods. But this peculiarity has not discouraged the men who, in time, have punctuated it with mills and continue to fish in its waters.
The charming villages located near its banks retain a remarkable heritage, which explains the attraction exercised on many personalities from the artistic and literary world.

Beautiful Douaire park which covers over 6 hectares, out of Boissets on the road to Civry-la-Forêt. More than 180 species of trees, shrubs and flowers are installed. The orangery buildings offer to residents the kitchens and amenities when festivities are celebrated.
