Barbizon Travel Tips

See the French Countryside with Barbizon Vacation Rentals

Barbizon is a quaint little town with distinct country charm. When looking for Il-de-France apartments or homes, look in the little town of Barbizon. You can find houses for your entire family if you are on a family vacation. The little town is also very family friendly with its quiet streets, quaint shops, and surrounding woods and parks. The Barbizon school of painters, which included many of France’s greats, got its name from the beautiful village.

Central Location

Barbizon is happily situated near the great city of Paris, and near several other towns of interest. Fontainebleau, where the famous and impressive hunting lodge of Louis XIV is located, is only about 10–15 minutes away from Barbizon. Also nearby is the famed Le Veau le Viconte, the large and ornate palace that Versailles was patterned after. Visiting many sites of interest in France is possible from your vacation home in Barbizon. Paris, the most well-known city in France, offers the full range of French culture, from the modern to the medieval. However, Paris is not the only part of France that is worthy of being visited. In Barbizon, you will be close enough to visit Paris, and yet able to see and experience the countryside as well.

Expand Your Vacation

While you may be planning on visiting France to see the sites and experience the culture, don’t forget about the other enjoyable activities that are available. Barbizon travel will not only offer you a great location for seeing the sights of France, but it will also offer relaxing and enjoyable activities such as hiking through the beautiful Fontainebleau Forest, horseback riding, tennis, and browsing the many fresh farmers markets. Your vacation home, equipped with all the amenities you will need for your vacation, will be the perfect place to experience these things.
