We are planning to arrive in Fontainebleau in the afternoon of 30 April and were planning to stay in the area and see the palace on 1 May. I have just learned that this is French Labor Day. Will everything be closed? What about Paris? We intended to turn in our rental car in downtown Paris later that afternoon and check into our vacation flat. Not sure we can squeeze a visit to the palace into the previous day as we are seeing Giverny and driving there to F. We don't want to rush leaving our splurge Chateau accomodation and seeing Giverny. Please advise.
Also, recommendations for simple farmhouse B&B type accommodation out from Fontainebleau would be appreciated.
