On the road
West of Paris, Yvelines is a mostly rural department but also one of the most vastly populated of the Parisian region with 1.37 million inhabitants (8th in France). With 80 pc of its territory covered by fields or forest, Yvelines is one of the greenbelts of Paris and Ile de France. The quality and variety of its landscapes, coupled with its countless monuments and a modern and technological economy employing nearly 600,000 make Yvelines a very influential and wealthy area on the outskirts of the capital.
