Fontainebleau surprise visit

Somewhat overwhelmed with the intense city living and relentless tour guiding, we sometimes decide to take a break outside the confines of this shiny metropolis and reconnect with nature (or what’s left of it). One of the perfect places to do so is the domaine of Fontainebleau – a uniquely beautiful forest, famous for its historically important castle as well as homely, stylish villas. However, this domaine has a lot more to offer, as you will surely come to realize browsing through these photographs – vintage village looks, fairy tale designs and modestly cute houses are exactly what you need when you grow tired of large boulevards, busy streets and ever-growing crowds of Paris. Enjoy.

 

 

A rest for the eyes after rows and rows of Haussmannian buildings of the Parisian skyline. Same chemtrails though.

 

 

While we’re resting our eyes, we can also repose them on these cute and unpretentious windows.

 

 

…and this awfully cute village church

 

 

…and whatever this unpleasant site is supposed to represent

 

 

Marx and Engels in Fontainebleau ? Why not ?

 

 

This place is not only a breath of fresh air and a chic countryside residential area – it also used to be an artistic colony. One of the most famous people to have created here was Jean François Millet, a prominent member of the Barbizon school – a forerunner of the school of Realism, that preceded Impressionism. If you wish to find out more about it, consider taking our Orsay museum visit. Anyhow, this is his atelier.

 

 

…and this is a former bistro, nowadays a museum, where the members of the school used to gather.

 

 

So it this

 

 

And also this. Gotta appreciate the country atmosphere. It’s just so incredibly cute.

 

 

A great detail from the inside of the bistro/museum.

 

 

… and a very mythical, John Ford – like shot to conclude this photo series, much like he concluded The Searchers. Yes, we at Paris in Person here never lacked the ambition – let it never be said that we are a modest folk.
