Things to see and do

At the heart of the valley Viosne in the Parc Naturel Régional du Vexin French, Chars offers a natural sensitive Moulin Noise.

The rich landscape, in a small space (wetlands, wooden slopes, calcareous grasslands), it offers a botanical diversity and remarkable wildlife.

The church Saint-Sulpice offers a harmonious composition between Romanesque (nave), the beginning of Gothic art (Chorus) and Renaissance (bell tower).
