MONTIGNY-SUR-LOING




Montigny-sur-Loing

The geographical situation of Montigny is responsible for its wealth and originality. The town is nature-orientated, surrounded by the state forest of Fontainebleau to the north, the Plaine de Sorques (a Site of Special Scientific Interest) to the east and the meandering River Loing to the south. From the Town Centre alleyways lead to the Church of Saint Peter and Saint Paul.

Along the Loing, Montigny offers a wide variety of leisure properties, from fishing-huts enjoying a few private metres on the banks to magnificent villas set by the water or on hilltops with superb views over the surrounding countryside.

Like the neighbouring towns, Montigny-sur-Loing has welcomed numerous artists and writers who came to enjoy its charm and tranquillity. With the arrival of the railway and the construction of a viaduct in 1860, new populations came from Paris to settle here. Dozens of walking trails and bridle paths start from the town. Enjoy the “bathing area” along the Loing or discover a diversity of flora and fauna while strolling along the way marked paths in the Plaine de Sorques.

Venture on the hillsides bordering the forest in september and for those of you who are daring and fortunate, you might find very tasty wild grapes, what survives of the vineyards which were decimated by phylloxera. But those secret grape locations, like those of mushrooms do not give themselves away, you have to discover them for yourself !
