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.

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.
