We meet in Marines (one hour drive from central Paris) on Saturday morning at 9 am for a breakfast and briefing together. You will deposit you luggage in our assistance vehicle. After having made contact with « your » horse while preparing it, we leave for a ride towards the Seraincourt castle where we will spend one night.
Built in the seventeenth century for a minister of Louis XIV, Seraincourt castle is imbued with historic events. Among the personalities who have stayed here we could for instance mention Ninon de Lenclos, courtesan at the Court Louis XVI, who secretly met the Duke of Villarceaux here. More recently, Pola Negri, Hollywood’s first silent film star, married here in 1920. All movie stars of the time were there : Charles Chaplin, Douglas Fairbank, May Pickford ….
The theme of this trail ride is Vexin’s culinary specialties. During the week-end you will taste a lot of local food. All lunches and dinners are made with fresh local products. We also organize a beer tasting to make you discover the local traditional Vexinois beers. We return to Marines on Sunday afternoon and our ride ends around an aperitif at approximately 6 pm.
And, as always, good spirit and friendliness will be on the menu of this gastronomic trail ride!
