It's all 4 seasons greetings from Chelles

Let's face it, there's never a bad time to visit the Paris region. The most popular time is during the warmer, summer months when the weather is at its best. Temperatures can reach a balmy 80 degrees and it's largely dry and sunny (although the chance of rain is never far away). It's also when Chelles vacation rentals are at a premium. For the best choice, visit in spring or fall when it's a little cooler and Paris attractions are slightly quieter. Winter is regarded as low season in Chelles when it's crisp and cold, so pack extra layers.

Spot birds of a feather in Haute-Ile State Park

Chelles is a small town in the beautiful Ile-de-France region and a 16-mile drive east of central Paris. But the town's proximity to the city doesn't mean a lack of green space. A 10-minute drive south of the town is Haute-Ile State Park, a charming rural park which stretches across 65 acres. It's a popular hangout for birdwatchers who come to spot kingfisher, grey heron, and rattle hawk. It's also close to the River Marne, which offers some great cycling and walking routes.
