About 10 seconds... That's how long it'll take once you set foot on the grounds of Camping Île de Boulancourt to spy reasons aplenty why gratified guests return here again and again: this handsome and family-friendly site is on the banks of the Essonne river, surrounded by woodland paths, trails and waterways for cyclists, hikers, strollers and eagle-eyed wildlife watchers.
The spectacular forest of Fontainebleau (horse riders and climbers, this is where you saddle or buckle up) is an easy 25 minutes' drive away, and the forest, wetland and biosphere reserve of the Fontainebleau et du Gâtinais is within about 20 minutes. The site's setting in the Seine-et-Marne countryside is about an hour and 20 minutes from magnifique Paris by car, or just under an hour and a half via the RERD train from nearby Malesherbes.
Île de Boulancourt is a scenic and peaceful place, with grassy areas, tree-lined paths, gardens, and colourful flowers and shrubs. You can fish in the Essonne river that runs through the site, or (and?) settle down for a picnic at one of the riverside tables, or just find your own solitary spot for riverside or tree-shaded daydreaming. Bikes are available for hire if you want to explore the surrounding woodland.
The site also has a spacious court for pétanque, prettily set among flowers; a roomy playground on sand, and a games room with sofa for reading and general lounging. A well-equipped kitchen is at guests' disposal for food prep: pick up basics a couple of minutes' walk away in Boulancourt village, or drive the 10 minutes or so to the shops and restaurants of Malesherbes.
Barbecues and campfires are both allowed on site.

The fab forest of Fontainebleau within easy day trip distance is famed as the former hunting ground of French royalty because of its setting close to Paris. It's been a popular and legendary French spot for centuries, known for its rock formations and boulders as well as its gorges, hills and wildlife: pick up some forest info nearby in Fontainebleau town to ponder over what you might like to see.
Fontainebleau has plenty of climbing routes to tackle, horse riding and mountain biking trails, and over 300 kilometres of waymarked trails to explore. The Franchard gorges, Apremont rock formations and La Solle hills are a few of the sights to look out for on your travels, while keeping a keen eye out too for forest wildlife such as rabbits, woodpeckers, deer and wild boar.
Just outside Fontainebleau town, the splendid Château de Fontainebleau is also much recommended: this UNESCO World Heritage Site was first a medieval castle and then a royal residence, home to French royalty for centuries.
