The Jean-Marc Fresnel Sports Center, ideally located in the prestigious and internationally renowned city of Versailles, offers peaceful and easy-to-get-to facilities, as some of them are located on the edge of the forest as well as close to the main road network. Its other facilities, 10 minutes away by car, are also located in a superb setting on the hills around the city, not far from the Palace of Versailles. There are car parks on these two sites. The Center has various facilities: firstly, near the forest, a large indoor athletics arena (much appreciated in bad weather), a fencing hall and access to the horse riding club; secondly, on Montbauron Hill, a 50 meter-long pool and a stadium with a running track.

Special features

The Center offers a peaceful, discreet, accessible and bright environment close to the forest.
