A property comprising two houses overlooking verdant surroundings
45 minutes to the south of the French capital in the centre of Barbizon
Barbizon, SEINE-ET-MARNE ile-de-france 77630 FR


The village of Barbizon, some 50 km away from the French capital with a slip road leading directly on to the A6 motorway, is known the world over for having formed the background in the painting “L'Angélus” (The Angelus) by Jean-François-Millet whose artist’s studio can still be visited today. Barbizon was a place of inspiration and work for many artists, poets and landscape painters who, at the end of the 19th century, used the local countryside and Fontainebleau forest for their plein-air painting. The famous “Barbizon School” was founded.
The main street, forming the backbone of the village, is lined with local shops, galleries, boutiques and several good restaurants where it is pleasant to eat.


This rectangular plot is entered via wide wooden gates that open on to a parking area, able to take several cars, bordered by plants. It precedes the main, L-shaped house, followed, beyond a terrace still to be created, by a second building that has use of the back garden, in which stands a little wooden chalet.

Our opinion

The magic of the landscapes surrounding Barbizon is still very much alive. Those living in this little town benefit from the aesthetic pleasure of taking walks and of contemplation as well as from the ease of the daily way of life. In such a sought-after setting, one of the two houses could easily be rented, the open-plan flat and its garden for instance, if a family settles in the other which is already laid out for receiving guests. Any option is possible, the main assets remaining the proximity of the French capital and the quality of life on the edge of the immense Fontainebleau forest.
