Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Aisne

Taillefontaine is a pleasant village of about 300 inhabitants of the typical Retz Forest, located on the road between Villers-Cotterets to Compiègne, to Pierrefonds.

Built on the side of the valley that runs through the "ru Vandy", not far from the ubiquitous forest, this picturesque village is sitting on the same rock that serves as a foundation and it served as a source of materials.

Things to see and do

Built in the Middle Ages, the Church of Our Lady, crowned with its stone tower by the Renaissance, and ornate paneling and statues by the Duke of Orleans, who came here to the chase, today certainly worth a visit.

The gate of the farm "Fournier" is unique, his coaching boss announces the Louis XIII style.
