The cobblestoned town of Barbizon has attracted artists for many years, and the 19th-century timbered Hôstellerie du Bas-Bréau has had its share of famous guests. Robert Louis Stevenson wrote in Forest Notes about this hotel and it is often called "Stevenson's House." Famous painters who treasured this corner of the Forest of Fontainebleau include Millet, Corot, Sisley, and Monet.

Some accommodations are in the main timbered house, but most are in a two-story building in the back garden. Each room is different in decor and has a bath. The restaurant is superb, drawing dinner guests from as far away as Paris. With unusually attractive flower arrangements on each table, the atmosphere of the dining room is elegant and romantic. Political leaders selected the hotel as a conference location - you will understand their choice when you dine at Hôstellerie du Bas-Bréau where the menu features home-grown vegetables and herbs and specialties such as wild boar.

This secluded hunting lodge, surrounded by a sea of greenery on the outskirts of Fontainebleau forest, is an oasis of comfort and tranquillity. Once a favourite retreat for the artists of the Barbizon school, the lodge’s tastefully decorated rooms were more recently enjoyed by Emperor Hiro-Hito. A truly idyllic spot in which to savour gourmet cuisine and fine wines served in elegant crystal and silverware.

Half an hour from Paris, the Hôtellerie du Bas-Bréau, covers a hectare. An ideal location on the outskirts of the capital to enjoy nature in peace.

The Hôtellerie du Bas-Bréau, located in Barbizon offers :

  • A large park
  • A swimming pool
  • A restaurant
  • A barbecue
  • A pub
  • 16 rooms, 4 suites ans a Villa

Swimming pool & park

The Hôtellerie du Bas-Bréau welcomes you to enjoy a calm and relaxing stay.

Stroll through the inn’s one-hectare grounds and, when the fine weather returns, enjoy the heated outdoor swimming pool (open only during the high season).

Fontainebleau & its forest

Weaving between the world’s most beautiful trees, boulders and across moorland, over 25,000 hectares, including a 20,000 hectare managed estate, these paths are perfect for walkers, hunters, and lovers of open-air sports. The only limit to this vast forest is the “bornage” - a pathway that encircles the Fontainebleau forest.

On the fringes of this forest, in the surrounding countryside, the legend of Barbizon – the French “school of nature” established by Corot, Millet, Rousseau and many other painters – was born.

Receptions

A favourite venue for upscale management seminars, the Hôtellerie can host a maximum of 40 guests for a sit-down meal.

At each sitting in the inn’s great dining hall guests will enjoy the familiar clink of silver and crystal tableware. When the weather is fine, the windows are left wide open on the surrounding countryside. At the first sign of frost, a woodfire crackles in the hearth and guests retire in the evening to traditional, cosy rooms.

One doesn't invent such a house. The neighboring famous forest, a blessed light, the wake of artists and famous visitors are needed.
