Hey there! I am looking for a calm place with a park or a forest near by, 1 hour away from Paris. I want to go on the countryside some times on the weekend and I am looking for a place to rest an be surrounded by nature. Thanks!!

Fontainebleau with the castle and forest are wonderful!

Rambouillet and Promenade des Quatre-Forêts between Chatenay-Malabry and Meudon are also lovely alternatives!

You can go to the Palace of Versailles, I love the gardens and the Domain de Marie Antoinette, right there. Is a beautiful way to spend a nice day

If you are looking for a luxurious chateau to stay in, try Château de Bourron at Bourron-Marlotte very near Fontainebleau. And in Giverny, try the website Esprit de France, they have some partner hotels outside of Paris. Or take the TGV from Paris Montparnasse - Bienvenüe to Vendome, only 43 min ride, and then you are really in the countryside, rural France, total peace

Fontainebleau has a great forest (+ a superb castle). There are plenty of trails in the forest if you want to hike, such as "le circuit des 25 bosses" http://www.25bosses.com/ (more on http://www.fontainebleau-tourisme.com/index.php/en/discover/by-the-forest.html)
