Just 30 km from Paris' commercial centre, Saint-Witz melts into the surrounding countryside of the Oise Park, one of France's most culturally and ecologically significant areas. Several business hotels in Saint-Witz provide outstanding facilities, to ensure you have a comfortable and relaxing retreat for your visit to the region.
What should I know about Saint-Witz?
The name Saint-Witz comes from St Vitus, who lived in the third century. The Sicilian nobleman is said to have performed miracles and was tortured for refusing to publicly renounce his faith. The hill on which the ruins of the twelfth-century Montmelian Castle stand has long been an important place of worship in the area, with it belonging to the Merovingian kings of France. It is around this hill that the town grew.
What can I expect from my business experience?
Only 30 km from the commercial hub of Paris, Saint-Witz is located at the border of the Oise Park. This is an ideal position from which to access the best of Ile-de-France, which includes Paris and idyllic countryside. Conduct business in the French capital, whilst retiring to your peaceful hotel in Saint-Witz to prepare for the next day of meetings. Charles de Gaulle Airport is also just half an hour away, making this an accessible destination for international travellers. Though the majority of business people living in Saint-Witz commute to Paris, there are a number of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) located here.
What is there to do near to my Saint-Witz hotel?
Saint-Witz is a delightfully traditional country town, complete with verdant fields and historic buildings. Among the most attractive is the Chapel of Saint-Jean, located on the site of the twelfth-century Montmelian Castle, of which just one tower remains. The chapels of Saint-Michel (fifteenth century), Saint-Nicholas (eleventh century) and the Saint-Wy mill (eighteenth century) are other stunning local attractions. For more modern cultural offerings, head to the Artists' Lounge, a space for contemporary sculpture which regularly hosts exhibitions of work by international artists. The parks and gardens of the Val d'Oise are legendary across France and there are many to choose from. It is also well worth visiting the magnificent Château de Chantilly, located a mere 15 km from your Saint-Witz hotel. With opulent rooms, ornate gardens and the world-class Musée Condé gallery, you could happily get lost there.
