A city in the country

In the open air

GrandSoissons offers a real green setting in which emerge villages of character, real islands of minerality between wooded valleys and agricultural plateaus.


Tourists find a setting conducive to disconnection and rejuvenation along gentle itineraries, walks and hikes along the Aisne, or between sites of preserved heritage such as the Septmonts keep or the medieval castle of Berzy-le-Sec.

GrandSoissons is also located at the gateway to the Forêt domaniale de Retz, one of the largest in France. In autumn, visitors walking through this ancient royal forest have the chance to witness the period of the deer’s brâme – magical moments full of poetry, the memory of which remains vivid, even after many years.
