A contemporary rustic hotel is situated about 40 minutes outside of central Paris, giving guests the opportunity to experience rural France in proximity to the country's capital. In a sense, this is an ideal spot for tourists who are looking to explore France in its entirety. The idea behind the rustic hotel is to establish an immediate connection "with the changing seasons, the great outdoors, and local wildlife."
Located in the Forest of Rambouillet, Le Barn takes on the silhouette of an abandoned building from the 19th-century. The renovation is headed by architectural studio Be-poles who subtly takes cues from contemporary styling and traditional agriculture. The result is a quaint modern rustic hotel, a space that brings together good design and the outdoors as "guests can watch horses graze from the rooms."
