Philosophy & History

Sense of place

A former hunting lodge on the edge of Fontainebleau forest, the house’s prestigious name has been handed down over three generations. Classic and timeless, everything has changed so that everything can remain the same, including a garden and pool for lounging in fine weather, complete with a barbecue.

Our History

"Landscapes reflect the people who inhabit them and who manage sometimes to modify them"

Barbizon has retained the image given to it by some of the greatest painters of the Impressionist school. Ask the centuries-old trees and the rocks sculpted by nature into fantastic forms, about the secrets of this little village in the province of "Bière".

R.L Stevenson
Author of "Treasure Island"

Stevenson is sometimes thought of as a writer of adventure stories and eerie tales for teenagers. But there is a whole other dimension to his work and he was widely acclaimed both by his contemporaries and by later writers.

He wrote “Treasure Island” in 1883 while staying at the Bas-Bréau Hostelry, where he clearly found inspiration and escape.

Painting school of Barbizon

On the fringes of this forest, in the surroundings countryside, the legend of Barbizon was born.

This French “school of nature” was established by Corot, Millet, Rousseau and many other painters.
