Barbizon, artistic and relaxing

Known as the village of painters, Barbizon is a charming village nestled on the edge of the Fontainebleau forest that has managed to preserve its artistic atmosphere. Since the 1820s, Barbizon has attracted painters fascinated by the light and the landscapes. The village invites you to stroll through the cobbled streets dotted with art galleries. In this village, art is everywhere, and the architecture is not left out. Indeed, the charm of the village is largely based on its buildings, each one more incredible than the next: half-timbered houses, stone residences, country houses covered in ivy, old converted farmhouses... There are many charming residences here! Finally, at the end of the main street of Barbizon, the state forest of Fontainebleau begins, ideal to recharge your batteries.
