Escape bustling Paris to the bucolic countryside with this pretty poster from 1928. Cernay Cottage Hotel was located in the Parisian suburb of Cernay-la-Ville in the Forest of Rambouillet.
Pictured in the poster is likely the historic Vaux de Cernay Abbaye, an 11th Century monastery. Left in ruins for many years, the monastery was purchased and refurbished by Charlotte de Rothschild in 1874 and became home to her collections of medieval objects and art. It stayed in the Rothschild family until it was seized by the Nazis during their occupation and today is used as a highly-rated resort.
The Chevreuse Valley is located about an hour's drive south of Paris and follows the Yvette River. It is known for its quiet countryside, dotted with medieval abbeys and churches. Close to Versailles, the Valley was used as the royal hunting grounds for hundreds of years. Beginning in the 1890s with the expansion of steam train travel, it continues to be known as a respite for city-dwellers.
