Ideas for holidays, weekends and trips in Amilly and its surroundings
The International Museum of Hunting, Château de Gien is open all year long and is classified as one of the biggest hunting museums in Europe. With its borders made up of both the forests of Orleans and Sologne, the chateau is in an ideal setting. The museum is as artistic as it is educational, with paintings, tapestries and sculptures from the 16th to the 20th centuries on display. The European Film Festival in Essonne, which began in 1999, covers many genres and styles of film. There are competitions, screenings of both feature length and short films, as well as definite nods to foreign cinema. There are workshops for children and also debates encompassing all walks of the European filmmaking process. As the fine weather begins to settle-in, Vaux-le-Vicomte Château hosts candlelit evenings in the Le Notre designed gardens, which are accompanied by classical music. This festival of light runs from May to October and also boasts a fireworks display on the first and third Saturday of every month. Ultimately, there is a magic to the ambience of this venue. Tanners', Le Gatinais and Girodet are alternative museum visits, and the Jardins du Grand Courtoiseau is a lovely spot for a leisurely walk.
