Magnificent French commune of Barbizon, located in the surroundings of the abundant forest of Fontainebleau. Place of dawns and sunsets that take your breath away and inspire artists to create paintings. Place known as “le village de peintres” (the village of painters), Barbizon had a huge boom in the period of the pre-Impressionist leaving its mark on those who chose to settle there, inspired by the magic of nature, to manage their studies and workshops; that up to the date, can be visited, as that of Jean-François Millet and Theodore Rousseau.
