La Bouille

An inspiring, artistic spot at the foot of Seine cliffs

Birthplace of writer Hector Malot, author of French children’s classic Sans Famille, this big village built at the foot of impressive cliffs inspired numerous painters, including Gauguin, Sisley, Pissarro, Lebourg and even Turner. On the little square in front of the church, though, it’s a statue of the local writer that takes pride of place, but several other authors, including Hugo, Flaubert, Mirabeau and Maupassant, evoked La Bouille in their work. Visit the many art galleries here; some artists open their studios to the public. Also known as a gastronomic centre, you’ll find plenty of addresses at which to delight your tastebuds here, in this place set in one of the Seine’s most beautiful meanders.
