The house is lovely. Quirky and full of character and feels like a real home from home. My two little boys were in heaven as there are lots and lots of toys for them to play with. Even better when it means mum and dad...More

About the neighbourhood
Only one hour away from Paris, ideally set in the heart of the 'Fontainebleau' and '3 pignons' forests, our cottage is located 10 kilometers away from the royal town of Fontainebleau. You simply need to cross the street for memorable hiking and cycling activities on well-marked trails. Not to forget rock climbing for which our cottage is a perfect starting point. After a few minute drive, you will be climbing the world famous boulders of Apremont, Franchard, 'la Canche aux Merciers' or 'Isatis et Cuisinière'. Another challenge? The tough '25 hills' hiking trail in the 3 pignons forest. Unforgettable!
Getting around
Using your car your car is the most convenient way to discover the region.
Most of the interesting places are a few minutes away by car.
Disneyland Paris is approx. 1 hour away by car (East side of Paris).

If you wish to organize a one-day trip to Paris, we strongly advise you to use public transportation (regional train then metro/bus within Paris).
Closest train station: Fontainebleau-Avon (line R of the Transilien train) at 15 kilometers of the gite. Direct train to central Paris in 40 minutes ('Gare de Lyon' station). You can park your car (daily fee) at the station.
Buy a 'Mobilis' ticket (zones 1 to 5): it is a 24-hour unlimited ticket for all trains, metros and buses in the Greater Paris area (except CDG airport).
