Tour of historic Maisons Laffitte + forest chestnut & mushroom hunt!
It’s Autumn so time for a walk in the forests to go chestnut and mushroom hunting! Barely 20mins from Paris lies the historic town of Maisons-Laffitte, on the edge of the forest of Saint Germain, where the kings of France once hunted on their expeditions out of Versailles. We will begin our adventure walking thru town and seeing the historic Chateau on the river Seine and then head into the forest for some chestnut and mushroom hunting and a lovely walk. Subject to the weather, we should hopefully also have a chance to roast on an open fire and eat our chestnuts fresh before heading home. What to bring: Sturdy walking shoes, rain jacket and a bag, basket and pocket/non-serrated small knife if you have (mushrooms should never be collected in bags). Note: We will have a book for identifying mushrooms, but you should always check with a pharmacist to be sure before eating (a free service in France). Where/when: Take the RER A, direction Poissy or Cergy or the L from Saint Lazare for Maisons-Laffitte. Cost: 12 euro per person (note: transport is free if you have a weekly/monthly Navigo, otherwise you will need to buy a ticket)
