Last weekend my family and I visited Moret-sur-Loing, a breathtaking médiéval village in the Fontainebleau forest with a rich history. Legend has it that Julius Caesar’s army passed through the village. Impressionist painter Alfred Sisley lived in Moret-sur-Loing and I’m not at all surprised that it also served as inspiration for Monet and Renoir. I have to thank my friend Philippe Engammare, an awesome Parisian chef who makes house calls, for suggesting Moret-sur-Loing to me! This perfect little village is so beautiful, very relaxing and only 1 hour from Paris!
The detail in the wood is amazing!
The doors in Moret-sur-Loing are simply magnifique!
