Montchauvet is a commune in the Yvelines department in the Île-de-France region in north-central France.

River[edit]

A small river named Ru d'Ouville traverses Montchauvet, passing through four other communes to a total length of 10.2 kilometres (6.3 mi). The Ru d'Ouville is a tributary of the Vaucouleurs which in turn empties into the Seine.[2]

History[edit]

A British bomber was shot down in the area of Montchauvet on June 8, 1944. The six men of its crew rest in the local graveyard.
