As soon as you become a resident of Évry, you would need to find out more about living in Évry, public transport and discover the various facilities of the school.


Located in the Île-de-France region, the city of Évry is situated about 33 kilometers south of Paris in the departement of Essonne and has more than 53,000 inhabitants.

Located on the left bank of the Seine, Évry is one of the greenest cities in Île-de-France with numerous parks and a lot of green space. Boasting excellent transport links, Évry is an ideal starting point to discover the beauties of the Île-de-France, especially with the capital, Paris, in its vicinity.

Walking through Évry, one can admire the remains of the castle of Petit-Bourg, of which only the former common, built between the seventeenth and eighteenth century, remains. Not far away, the Church of St. Peter and St. Paul, also dating back to the eighteenth century, has a beautiful chapel dedicated to the Virgin Mary and a cross vault dating back to the thirteenth century and a beautiful red marble baptismal font. 

The modernity of the city also has a certain charm, with beautiful architecture highlighting the talents of the twentieth century, using brick as the main element. Note especially the Cathedral of the Resurrection, built by Mario Botta. The twelve windows of the building do not lack charm.

Évry offers visitors a large number of green spaces of all kinds. Within the town one can find about a hundred hectares of parks, like Henri Fabre Park, Parc des loges, Coquibus center, the Parc des Tourelles, the Parc Pompidou, the park on the banks of Seine, Bois sauvage or the Resistance square. With all this greenery, Évry is recognized as one of the “flowered cities and villages” of France.
