City of Roses"

Gerberoy is a member of the Association " Les Plus Beaux Villages de France" and is one of the gems of the "Oise", situated in the middle of a triangle between Beauvais, Rouen and Amiens. Dominating the surrounding countryside at an altitude of 188 meters, the village received a Town Charter, with certain privileges, from King Philippe Auguste in 1202.
It was besieged several times between 1079 and 1437, looted and razed to the ground, but rebuilt in a way that preserved its character.
The Town
In spring and summer the fronts of the houses along the cobbled streets are covered with climbing roses making Gerberoy a garden in itself.
The 17th and 18th century houses, in brick and flint or half timbered, give the town a special quality which is enhanced by its history.
