Discover our establishment Les Étangs de Corot, our hotel near Paris in the heart of nature worthy of an impressionist painting. City of art and light, Ville-d'Avray is located at the gates of Paris. Barely a 20-minute drive takes you to the capital at Ville-d'Avray. Created in the Middle Ages, the city has grown over time and welcomed many artists who have made it their vacation spot. The best known is of course the painter Camille Corot who liked to come for a walk on the edge of the ponds to soak up their magnificent colors which change with the seasons. His paintings of the ponds are now exhibited and visible all over the world. He even gave his name to the ponds that were previously called “the pond of the Célestins”. Jean Rostand and Boris Vian complete the list of illustrious personalities who have frequented the premises and contributed to the reputation of the Etangs de Corot.
Among the essentials of Ville-d'Avray, we can of course mention the Church of Ville-d'Avray, the Forest of Fausses Reposes, the green heart of the city and of course, Les Etangs de Corot. Fishing reserve in the Middle Ages, we are today the privileged neighbors of this daily spectacle which welcomes you in its confines to rock you with beauty. Our hotel, if it is close to Paris, is also in direct proximity to Versailles. Only 10 minutes by car allow you to reach Versailles and its well-known treasures such as the Palace of Versailles and its gardens. Whether you want nature or history, culture or greenery, Ville-d'Avray is a destination allowing many visits and discoveries.
Going to the Etangs de Corot is also an opportunity to come face to face with nature, to take a green break from your daily life. Whether you are passing through or Parisian, visiting the Parc de Saint-Cloud, the Forêt de Fausses Reposes or the ponds is a must to experience the tranquility of the place. The surroundings of our establishment is a real peaceful setting. The colors of the trees reflected in the surface of the water change throughout the season, with green giving way to orange in the fall. They also change throughout the day depending on the sun and the orange and pink shades light up the sky at the end of the day. If this description almost gives the impression of being miles away from any habitation, so much time seems suspended around this nature, it is indeed at the Etangs de Corot, our hotel near Paris.
