Compiegne

Compiegne is a town in Northern France. Nestled in French countryside situated on the Oise River, Compiegne is ideally positioned for a stop before Paris. It was in Compiegne that Jeanne D’Arc was captured during the English and French conflict in 1430 and in tribute to her efforts, a monument was placed in the Place du 54 Regiment d’Infanterie. The Palace of Compiegne was built by kings of France just for enjoyment and there is a little Chateau in Compiegne which is home to interesting furniture and paintings. Also here is the Forest of Compiegne and the Compiegne Armistice Museum and the tourist office, Place de l’Hotel de Ville. Popular hotels and eating places include Hotel de Flandre and Rive Gauche.
