Luxury holidays in Bonnelles
When to go
Bonnelles was traditionally a place for the Parisian elite to build their summer residences, but these days it’s a year-round destination. The leafy forest and flower-spotted meadows com alive in the summer, but they’re just as charming in late autumn or under a dusting of snow.
PlanesParis Orly is the closest of the capital’s airports, just 35 minutes’ drive away. You can fly directly from London Heathrow, Manchester and Birmingham. If you’re coming from elsewhere, you’ll probably touch down at Paris Charles de Gaulles; from there, it’s around an hour’s drive to most places in Bonnelles.
TrainsCatch the Eurostar from St Pancras International to Paris Gare Du Nord, then hop onto Metro line 4 (the blue one) to Montparnasse-Bienvenue, where you can take regional services to Rambouillet (the neighboring commune).
AutomobilesIf you don’t mind driving yourself, a car will come in handy: there’s plenty to see in the surrounding countryside and public transport’s pretty thin on the ground. The Smith24 team can arrange your hire.
