Opening of the Gustave Caillebotte’s home
The house in which the impressionist painter Gustave Caillebotte lived between 1860 and 1870 has been patiently restored, redecorated, and refurnished. It’s doors have reopened to the public on June 10th. In the bedroom, the dining room, and the billiard room, you will find a typical 19th century bourgeois interior. The neo-Palladian style villa named Casin consists of a walk-through dedicated to the artist and his family, as well as a workshop, equally renovated as a reminder that Caillebotte did a number of his paintings here. The dwelling was built in a park of 11 hectares surrounded by the river Yerres – where you can glide along the water in a small boat or canoe – which also includes an orangerie, a Swiss Chalet, a vegetable garden, and a charming restaurant, La Table du Parc…There is also the Ferme Ornée, where exhibitions are regularly held.
