Charming House, Beautiful Gardens
Sep 2021
We visited the Propriete Caillebotte, the home of French painter Caillebotte, last weekend and discovered a hidden gem in the Paris area. The house itself is decorated in the Empire style but for me the main attraction was the beautiful garden surrounding the house and especially the vegetable garden. In addition, the house was hosting a small art exhibit of some post impressionists that was interesting in its own right. A great place for a sunny afternoon visit. Entrance to the park/gardens is free.

Charming 18th-century house and park
May 2019 • Couples
If you're a fan of the Impressionists and of Gustav Caillebotte, one of the fathers of Impressionism, you'll like and appreciate this pretty house and park. It's easy to reach from Paris (about a half-hour on the RER D from Les Halles, plus a taxi or Uber ride) and will make a nice afternoon.

Caillebotte and his talented brothers, who were close all their lives, lived here while their parents were alive. The house is a monument to that time, after which they went their separate ways. Gustav made waves in the art world before dying young.

Take the RER to Yerres, then either the F4 bus or (my preference) taxi or Uber to the house. There's a restaurant there with good reviews, but it was closed for a private party when we were there.

You can get an advance look at the place by downloading the iPhone app, and Caillebotte in Google returns a wealth of information. Don't miss the potager, or kitchen garden, which is part of the park.

Highly recommended.

Gorgeous gardens, perfect outside lunch spot
Apr 2019 • Couples
Just a half-hour or so outside of Paris with easy access on the RER, this garden, restaurant, and park makes a perfect easy and relaxing day trip out of Paris. Pick a gorgeous day, leave Paris mid to late-morning, walk about ten minutes (at most) from the RER station (following clear sign-posts), and you'll find yourself in a lovely garden à l'anglais--not a formal French garden, but expanses of lawn with vast variety of trees--many planted for and named after children born in the town; you'll find panels listing the trees and their names. It's not a huge garden, but it's good for a 20 to 30 minute walk, and there's a large working vegetable garden that's only open on the weekends (more access on Sundays), so I didn't see it, but it looked worth seeing. We had lunch in the restaurant, which has a great patio--the food was very good, but it's really a matter of atmosphere + food, so pick a day when you'll want to eat outside. The house itself is very informative on the life and family of the painter Gustave Caillebotte--the exhibits are thorough, clear, and well-organized. Unfortunately, there's not a single actual work by Caillebotte on the premises, so admirers of his work might be disappointed on that score, but overall, it's a splendid day-trip out of Paris, with only 45 minutes travel each direction.

Terrific Day Trip From Paris
Oct 2017 • Friends
We went by train to Yerres on a Saturday in October to visit the former summer home of the Caillebotte family, which included French Impressionist painter Gustave Caillebotte. He spent much time here, capturing, in almost 90 works, the beauty of nature and gardens within the estate’s 25 acres of park-like setting. As we arrived in mid-morning and the beautifully restored 19th-century house would not open until 2 p.m., we decided to amble through the acreage on wide, gravely paths.

Tall trees provided shade on the sunny day and a few visitors sprawled on grassy expanses or sat on benches. We followed an artificial stream along the Yerre River and admired colorful fall flowers in many places. A large walled area revealed a well-tended vegetable garden, with plot after plot of amazing produce. Outbuildings included an orangery and farmhouse, now exhibition spaces, and a Swiss-chalet-style building, which holds a restaurant — La Table du Parc — where we ate a lovely lunch.

At the time of our visit, an 8 E admission fee was charged to explore the two-story neoclassical villa, where the Caillebottes spent much time between 1860 and 1879. The interior and its furnishings provide tremendous insight into how wealthy people of the era lived. Information boards and photos give the history of family members as well as the property itself. The second floor rooms include a painter’s studio. Though many others entered the house when we did, as well as afterward, there was enough space so that the rooms never seemed crowded.

Propriete Caillebotte is about a 30-minute ride from Paris on the RER D toward Melun. It took us about 10 minutes to walk from the Yerres station to the property. A stop here could possibly be combined with one at Monet’s house in Giverny, a few miles away, but I am unsure how easy that would be to do via public transport.

A house, a museum and a park !!!
Apr 2018 • Couples
Went to visit the house of the painter Gustave Caillebotte about half an hour from paris by train.Good attraction for a sunny day.10€ per person for both the house and the exhibition nearby. the white House on three levels is well designed, simple , nice and well designed amid a big park . Furniture and decor is nice, well equiped and lots of informations about the painter and his family through history.
the exhibition is in a different place next to the house but still worth the visit. nice paintings on Dream theme. There is a restaurant , next the swiss chalet 22€ for a menu and also a big relaxing park good for families , readings or picnics.
It worth a detour.

Enjoyed Maison Caillebotte
Sep 2017 • Couples
We arrived about 12:30 and the Maison doesn't open until 2:00pm so we had a delightful lunch in the Parc restaurant. After lunch we toured the home. I am a fan of the Impressionists so I knew about Gustave but it was interesting to learn about the rest of the diverse family and see the home where he lived while he painted many of his works. Obviously, his family was affluent so it was a glimpse into an upper class home of that time in history. My husband uses a walker and the staff were very helpful, letting us use an alternate entrance and the elevator.
Because of the walker we did not go out into the park as the gravel is not walker friendly. What we saw was very beautiful. We recommend visiting the home, restaurant and park.

You are in search of a cool place? One not so far from Paris though?

The Caillebotte Park in the town of Yerres is the place for you.

I have been to this park several times, and I can assure you that spending a few hours there – and in the town of Yerres – will not disappoint you.

The town of Yerres is 23 km (14 miles) south-east of Paris, and the RER D train will get you there in about 20 minutes from any Paris métro station, for example Châtelet-les-Halles. I suggest you buy the 24-hr Mobilis ticket. The ticket is sold by zone (1-2; 1-3; 1-4 and 1-5) and Yerres is in Zone 4. The ticket will therefore cost you €11.20.

From the Yerres station it is but a short (and very pleasant) walk to the Caillebotte Park: you won’t get lost because signboards will direct you to it.

Caillebotte Park forms part of an estate, at one time, the property of the Caillebotte family of whom Gustave Caillebotte, the impressionist painter, was a member. It is actually because of Gustave Caillebotte that the park, museum and Yerres are on the tourist route today.

Each spring/summer the property hosts a sculpture exhibition – the Biennale de Sculpture. This year (2016) is its fourth year. It opened on April 9 and will close on Sunday, July 10.

The sculptures are on display both in the park which make an already magnificent park even more so, and in one of the property’s mansions, the Ferme Ornée.

If you just want to walk in the park, and view the sculptures while they are still on display, there is no entrance fee. However, if you want to see those in the Ferme Ornée, then you will need to buy a ticket which will cost you €5 ((£4 / $6): it is closed on Mondays.

If you are too late for the sculpture exhibition, know that you spend a very splendid hour or so in Gustave Caillebotte’s garden (le jardin potager). Maintained by the Potager Caillebotte Foundation, the flowers in the garden, which is not very big, will take your breath away. There is no charge to go into the garden. It is also closed on Mondays, but open every other day of the week from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Another treat for you will be that, as the town of Yerres borders the River Yerres, the river flows alongside the park, and on weekends one can hire a boat or a canoe for a sail on the river. A boat for 4 people maximum for half-an-hour will cost €5 (£4 / $6), and €9 (£7 / $12) for an hour. A canoe for 3 people maximum for half-an-hour will cost €4 (£3 / $5) and €7 (£5 / $9) for an hour. I’ve done it, and believe me, it was terrific!

The Caillebotte property is at No 8 Rue de Concy

There is a café in the park and a quite expensive restaurant too. The café is open when the park is – daily from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. – but the restaurant, which is independent from the property, and therefore have not only a tourist clientele but is also visited by locals, are open every day, but Monday, for both lunch and dinner.

Yerres is pronounced like ‘yes’ but with an ‘r’ at the end and not an ‘s’

The town of Yerres is quite small, and if you are the kind of tourists who wants to look around the local shops, do take note that on Sundays these are closed. So are even most of the town's restaurants.

Caillebotte Paintings & Park ....
Nov 2014 • Couples
Visiting makes for a very nice excursion by train from Paris, or if you're in nearby Orly. The town is a pretty jewel of greenery & well kept buildings and homes. The parc has waterways and is coursed by the river. The prize is to visit Caillebotte's home and to view the extensive collection of pieces! Rather amazing. The French rail system is efficient and doable for tourists. Makes a great ½ day, or longer, excursion from Paris. Enjoy. ...

Nice park, but that's not we came for misleading
Sep 2015 • Couples
We went to see the Caillebotte Paintings from Paris by train. According to the website the
museum was to be open at 9 am. We arrived at noon. No sign of life at that time. A note taped to the door
said they would open at 2 pm. Rather disappointed we headed back to Paris.

Pretty impressive
May 2015 • Friends
A lovely house set in beautiful gardens with a river running through. Until the 5th july 2015 there is a free exhibition of the works of Les Rouarts- three french artists, plus some art by Cailbotte and L'Ourson. Well worth a visit. Entry to the park and glasshouses is free.In the afternoon some days after 3pm you can hire rowing boats or canoes.You will need to check which days as it varies.
