Compiègne : Michelin's recommendations
Initially a royal residence, Compiègne was later the home of Napoleon III, who held lavish receptions here. Visitors can plunge back in history by visiting the château, a vast palace built in simple architectural style. Nature lovers can enjoy a stroll through the forest, where the armistice was signed on 11 November 1918 and then again on 22 June 1940. The village of Compiègne, a rival to its larger neighbour Beauvais, has a peaceful atmosphere of provincial tranquillity.
