The fully equipped kitchen (crockery, cutlery, dishes, dishwasher, fridge & freezer, gas cooker, oven & microwave.) opens up to the alpine-style cosy living room. It is divided into a dining and a lounge areas, with sofas and a television. Chalet Paradis offers you also great outdoor equipment. A beautiful wooden pergola overlooks our garden and the surrounding countryside. Equipped with table and chairs, it is a great spot for eating sheltered from sun... or rain. At garden level, another stone terrace, with evening lighting, awaits you for a sunny lunch or a well-deserved rest in a deckchair. Children will also love our swing and garden toys. Only 1 hour away from Paris, ideally nestled in the heart of the Fontainebleau and 3 pignons forests, 'Chalet Paradis' is located 10 kilometers away from the royal town of Fontainebleau and 5 kilometers from the famous painters village of Barbizon. For cycling or hiking on well marked trails, exceptional bouldering time on the famous Fontainebleau rocks, you have only to cross the street! But that's not all. After a few minute drive, you have the choice between admiring and visiting the wonderful royal castle of Fontainebleau (house of most the greatest French Kings), stroll in pretty Barbizon visiting painting galleries of Barbizon, or simply immerge yourself in a well preserved nature, rich of flora and fauna. Not to forget Paris, Disneyland and Versailles, that are excellent destinations for one-day trips, by car or by train. Practical information for your stay: - You will have to come by car (no public transportation in the village) - Closest train station: 'Fontainebleau Avon' only 10 minutes away by car (possibility to park at the station). Direct and regular trains to central Paris (Paris 'Gare de Lyon' station) in 40 minutes. - Possibility to park up to 2 cars in the garden - Easy access from the A6 motorway (Paris - Lyon axis). Arbonne la foret is located in the South East of Paris. - A small grocery store in available in the village (5 minutes by foot) - Next to the chalet, a restaurant (for quality meals) and a pizzeria/bar (including take away) await you - Crash pads for climbing can be rented out at the next door pizza place - Non smoking cottage (only outdoor smoking is tolerated) - Pets not accepted - Parties and noisy evening outdoor activities are not accepted especially after 10.30pm (quiet neighbourhood). - The owners remain at your disposal should you have any further questions (directions, local activities, bookings, recommendations...) Estimated travel time: - Paris (Porte d'Italie): 1h (60 kilometers) - Roissy Charles de Gaulle airport: 1h15 (90 kilometers) - Orly airport: 50 min (50 kilometers) - Calais: 3h30 (350 kilometers) - Strasbourg: 4h50 (520 kilometers) - Lyon: 3h (400 kilometers) We look forward to welcoming you, Pascale and Frederic, owners of 'Chalet Paradis'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).
