Ville d´Avray, a green setting at the gates of Paris

A green setting at the gates of Paris
About 7 kilometers west of the capital, discover an unspoiled town, away from the hustle and bustle of big cities. Its unique light and its bucolic setting have long made it a popular place for writers and artists. Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot, painter who inspired the Impressionists, immortalized on his canvases the beauty of the city ponds of Avray from the 19th century. The ponds of the city are then familiarly nicknamed "ponds of Corot".

The pond on the edge of which the hotel is located once belonged to the lords of Ville d´Avray, who sold fish to Parisian merchants. It is now an integral part of the city and what makes it so charming.

It is this poetry and this magic that Les Etangs de Corot hotel wishes to share through its delightfully surreal decor. Nestled in the heart of nature, the establishment is adorned with powdery colors, a creative decoration where the hunting trophies are in papier mache, and country-chic furniture in the rooms and at the Le Corot restaurant for a peaceful and warm atmosphere. .

As you walk towards the ponds, you can admire Corot's house, where the painter spent his spring and summer months painting. Close to the hotel is the Fontaine du Roy, whose gushing water was reputed to be the best around Paris. Louis XVI thus reserved this source for his particular use!
