Village of Chaumontel


The site of this charming village, situated in the north extremity of Val-d'Oise, is mentioned under the name of Calvo Monticulo in the bubble of the Pape Eugène III, in 1147.

But already in 1004, we find the track of the earth of Outreville, on which is at present a private house.
Formerly dependence of the castle of Chaumontel, Calvo Monticulo indicated the hill at the foot of which developed the village.
In 1233, the existing chapel is set up as parochial church; she is placed under the word of Notre-Dame of the Christmas in 1528.
The Lords of Chaumontel appear from the XIth century.
