Staying at the Elysée Val d’Europe? No matter what time of year you visit us, be sure to make a stop at Barbizon, a delightful village of artists just an hour from our hotel.
Barbizon: where art and nature meet
When you visit Barbizon, you will enjoy a peaceful stroll through picturesque village streets while learning more about some of France’s top landscape painters. Located right in Seine-et-Marne, the very same department that is home to the Hôtel l’Elysée Val d’Europe and Disneyland® Paris, Barbizon brings art and nature together to the delight of visitors young and old alike.
Walking in the footsteps of painters like Corot, Millet and Rousseau
Every scene in Barbizon looks like a postcard… Something that was noticed by Robert Louis Stevenson, George Sand, Baudelaire, Charles Baudelaire, and even Queen Elizabeth II when they paid a visit! The place marks an important moment in art history, too, where 19th century French painters like Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot, Jean-François Millet and Théodore Rousseau produced a large part of their work. You’ll be walking in their footsteps when you visit the school in Barbizon, the museum of local painters, and Millet’s and Rousseau’s workshops.
