This beautiful medieval village, one of France’s prettiest, is lined by timber-framed houses and flower-strewn balconies forming a charming mix that attracted the post-impressionist painter Henri le Sidaner. The village owes some of its charms to him: the wonderful Italian gardens and the ever-popular rose festival which has been organised every year since 1928.
Gerberoy is unspoilt and retains its rustic charm by the lack of telephone or electricity wires, billboards, shops and traffic lights.
The “village of roses” continues to be greatly admired and to attract artists. Despite its postcard-prettiness, the 115 inhabitants of Gerberoy appear surprised by the admiration the village attracts.
