We love where we live

Come visit and see why

OUR LOCATION

La Source Tranquille is situated right in the middle of the small town of Mouy, within a few minutes walk of the centre. Mouy is in the Oise, the southern most département of the Hauts-de-France region of France. Paris is just an hour's drive away and the ferry ports of Le Havre and Calais are two hours away by car. Local attractions include the cathedrals of Beauvais and Senlis, the chateau at Chantilly and the theme parks of Parc Astérix and Disneyland Paris. Monet's Garden and van Gogh's Auveres-sur-Oise are within easy reach. This is prime cycling territory , either for easy rides following the river and railway line, or further afield into the rolling hills of the Vexin.

STUNNING CHATEAUX

The nearby châteaux at Chantilly, Troissereux and Pierrefonds are stunning examples of French architecture and are open to visitors

AN ARTIST'S DREAM

Many famous artists came to appreciate the qualities of the region. Monet, van Gogh and van Beek all had studios locally

THEME PARK HEAVEN

Want to visit Disneyland Paris but not for the whole holiday? It's just an hours drive away. Even closer to Parc Astérix, or Parc Saint Paul for younger children

BREATHTAKING CATHEDRALS

If you're a fan of Gothic architecture you're in luck! This region is known as the "land of cathedrals" with each town competing with the next for the most stunning design

HISTORY ON YOUR DOORSTEP

The Hauts-de-France region of France saw more than its fair share of conflict in the last century - much of it within visiting distance from our gite

MOUTHWATERING RESTAURANTS

France is rightly famous for its cuisine. Our region is blessed with many restaurants offering good, home cooked, locally produced fare (and a few pizza takeaways if you want to stay in!)

SPORTING OPTIONS

We live in one of the best regions in France for cyclists but there are plenty more options whether you wish to watch or take part; from horseracing to windsurfing
