About our home

Stunning Villa in Fontainebleau, which we created following a stay in Fontainebleau whilst my wife attended INSEAD for an MBA, and as there was nothing really appropriate on the market for the modern travelling executive, we decided to create our own. Villa Vivante is rented out to executives studying for an MBA at INSEAD for 11 months of the year and every summer from 16th July - 7th August it is empty. Every bedroom has it's own private bathroom, most of which are ensuite. The garden is 1500m sq and has lovely mature trees offering plenty of shade for those hot summer days.


More about us

  1. We are - Nigel & Viv, my wife is a Doctor, I am an Osteopath, and there is Scott our 5yr old and Chloe who is 3yr. We are looking at emigrating to New Zealand and would like to visit over teh christmas & new year period of 2012/2013. The location would ideally be near Auckland as thsi is where we would eb working. The Villa may be our second home but we treat it as our first and would be equally respectful of your property. Due to the rental contracts at the Villa the exchange would have to be non simultaneous, although this means that you would be staying during the European summer.

Where is it?


Just 50min drive or 40min on the train to the center of Paris. Only 5 minutes walk from the second largest forest in Europe, the Foret de Fontainebleau, a truly magical forest with 100s of miles of trails for walking, running, mountain biking. If you are looking for Bouldering, then this is the mecca of world bouldering, this forest is absolutely the numer one location in the world. The Villa would make a perfect location to visit Paris or as a base for travel throughout Europe - Geneva only 5hrs by car - London 2hrs 15 min by Eurostar.
