Ideas for holidays, weekends and trips in Sannois and its surroundings
For any stay in Sannois, the Contemporary Art Market should be visited as it falls in Autumn and epitomises that very season. Boasting some of the finest elements of contemporary art, and unlike other larger such festivals, this encourages visitors to engage with the artists and other art-lovers, as you stroll and take in the culture. Over 150 artists attend this fair and these include sculptors, painters and photographers. This runs during mid-October and can be found at Ile des Impressionnistes, pont de Chatou. For music lovers, the Africolor Music Festival is a perfect chance to indulge in world music and see how a festival attempts to use music as ‘a tool for social change'. With concerts held all across the French capital, this truly is a unique experience that runs through mid-November to late December. The Gallop Equestrian centre in Sannois has extensive equestrian facilities and asks its visitors to come and spend time with some of their beautiful horses and ponies. The centre encourages riders of all levels and also has workshops to assist with, again, all level of riders – this can be found just 20 minutes north of Paris. If you are looking for family fun then the Bois de Boulogne Fun Fair is ideal, with traditional stalls and rides, this Autumn fair is a lovely day out and can be found at Porte de la Muette, boulevard Suchet. Your stay at the Campanile Sannois-Ermont hotel is sure to keep you busy!
