Senlis is a French town near Paris, renowned for the gothic Senlis Cathedral and its vast historical monuments. This medieval town has welcomed some of the most famous fi gures in French history, including Hugh Capet, Louis IX, the Marshall of France, Anne of Kiev and Seraphine de Senlis. The monarchs of the early French dynasties lived here, attracted by the proximity of the Chantilly forest.
Senlis is part of the province of l'Oise in the region of Picardie, in northern France, situated between the forests of Chantilly and d'Ermenonville. For the tourist there is a plentitude of churches, the Roman remains, and the nearby Castle of Chantilly to visit all within the beautiful surroundings of Picardie. Downtown Paris is also very accessable being just a 30-40 min drive away.
Fan 2021 conference and exhibition will take place in the Congress Centre of CETIM, situated at Senlis. Convenient for Charles de Gaulle airport in Roissy (Paris) the conference centre is modern, well equipped and conveniently located for those travelling to the conference, both within France and internationally.
The gala dinner will be held in an exceptional place, the royal abbey of Royaumont, the largest Cistercian abbey in the Greater Paris area. It was built by the future King, Saint Louis, in 1228. The building is listed as a Historic Monument and has one of the best Gothic refectories in France.
The seven-hectare Royaumont park including the gardens – from the cloister garden to the Kitchen Garden and the Garden of Nine Squares – lies in the heart of the Oise – Pays de France Regional Nature Park and is listed by the French Ministry of Culture as a Remarkable Garden.
The Royaumont restaurant, located in the North gallery, one of the abbey's most beautiful vaulted rooms, takes a holistic, creative and seasonal approach to French culinary tradition. The menu is inspired by the abbey's Kitchen Garden from which it takes some of its ingredients in addition to the fresh produce provided by small scale, preferably local, French farms.
