About our home

Our home is beautifully located in Fontainebleau center, 10mns from the remarkable Château and 10mns by foot from the forest.
Fontainebleau is located 55.5 kilometres (34.5 mi) south-southeast of the centre of Paris.
It is is renowned for the large and scenic forest of Fontainebleau, a favourite weekend getaway for Parisians, as well as for the historic Château de Fontainebleau, which once belonged to the kings of France.
It is also the home of INSEAD, one of the world's most elite business schools.
Our home is spacious, well equipped and cosy. A small garden allows to eat outside and do a bit of gardening if you like it.
