Perks for the Parents

A stunning house with a private heated outdoor swimming pool and tennis court, situated within the beautiful Barbizon Village just 45 minutes from Paris, France. It sleeps 12 + 2. Bordered by the forest of Fontainebleau, historic Barbizon was home to 19th-century landscape painters Théodore Rousseau, Jean-Baptiste Corot, Charles-Francois Daubigny and Jean-François Millet, who were inspired by the picturesque landscapes. Today the village offers a wide range of shops, art galleries, bars, cafes and gourmet restaurants, all just a short walk away from the house. Visit the traditional weekend market at Milly la Forêt, explore the picturesque Fontainebleau forest, or simply relax by the pool while the kids play with all the outdoor games and toys.

Why Kids Love it

This is a great home for active kids of all ages: they can play out on the swings, take turns on the slide, splash around in the heated saltwater filtration swimming pool, or challenge the family to a game of tennis, table tennis or mini football. There’s also plenty of toys available for indoor entertainment. Right by the house you’ll find access to the beautiful Fontainebleau forest, and there’s a place for horse riding next door. Cribs, baby bathtubs and toddler high chairs are available at no extra cost. Older kids and teens can try hiking, running, biking or rock climbing in the forest, or visiting the historic Fontainebleau Castle.

About the Location

The residence is located in Barbizon, just under an hour away from Paris, France. The nearest airport is Charles-de Gaulle in Paris. You can access the city via trains from Melun (25 minutes) or Fontainebleau (40 minutes).Trains leave from Gare de Lyon every 20 minutes. The beautiful area of Barbizon is bordered by the forest of Fontainebleau, which owes its fame to the 19th-century landscape painters who lived there. Their artistic movement, the Barbizon School (1830 to 1875), was considered a precursor of Impressionism. The artists appreciated the tranquility of this peaceful village and the beauty of the surrounding nature. Walking along the main street of Barbizon village, you'll find a succession of beautiful homes, shops, restaurants and art galleries. The edge of the forest in Barbizon is the departure point for a way-marked walking trail exploring the scenery that inspired these great landscape painters.

Style Notes

Country meets contemporary. This historic home has been recently renovated with a modern design, high end appliances and a whole host of safety features for families. The stylish kitchen blends dark wood, black worktops and chic copper hardware, while the neutral bedrooms boast a simple color palette to create a calming place to retreat. The unique loft rooms boast characterful arching ceilings, while the exterior retains some traditional wooden shutters. We love the open-sided fireplace, the art-inspired rug in the living area and the super sleek dining chairs.

Hi , Christian and Zeina here ! We are delighted to bring our newly remodeled home near Paris, France to Kids and Coe. We have 3 young children and our work assignments have successively made us live in London, Paris, Miami, Dubai, Dublin and presently in Zurich in Switzerland . We originally purchased this typical country home in Barbizon village as we were astonished by the beauty of the Fontainebleau region and thrilled with its proximity to Paris. We entirely remodeled the house with the desire to bring it back into the 21st century by adding modern days convenience by creating en-suite bathrooms, premium materials and new technologies while preserving the charming appearance of the home's exterior. The villa features a private park, heated secured pool and private tennis court so lots of outdoor activities for the entire family! It was designed with children in mind, with toys, a playground, a mmini football field, ping-pong and a walled secure park. The inside is peaceful, bright and modern: our gourmet kitchen is spacious and well-equipped to allow you to treat your friends and relatives whilst the triple living rooms offer space for family reunions and simply relaxation. Our villa is conveniently located within walking distance from the Barbizon village and has direct access to the Fontainebleau Forest ! Finally Paris is only 45 minutes away by car. We sincerely hope you to have you as future guests and to help you have a pleasant stay. Christian and Zeina
