Around the golf
Fontainebleau may be most famous for the château's royal former residents, but the town and surrounding area are also worth a visit. The vast forest is suitable for a wide range of activities (cycling, horse-riding, rock climbing), and the surrounding villages and countryside were beloved by the Impressionists and their predecessors.
Château de Fontainebleau
Surrounded by 130 hectares of park and gardens, and listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site, the château was host to royal residents for eight centuries. François I, Henri IV and Louis XVI all left an exceptional artistic legacy from their time. Napoléon I, describing it as "a true residence of Kings, their home over the centuries", renovated and refurnished it.
Château de Vaux le Vicomte
A masterpiece of classical art, where the arts, good taste and sophistication come together, this estate is the work of three geniuses: the architect Le Vau, the painter Le Brun and the gardener Le Nôtre. It inspired the building of the Château de Versailles. From May to October, the grounds are lit with 2,000 candles, fireworks and a champagne bar in the gardens, for unforgettable moments.
Château de Courances
Privately owned and still lived in, the château blooms in a haze of trees, valleys and light. The 75-hectare park, listed as a Jardin Remarquable, reflects several eras: classical park in the 17th century, French style in the 18th century, Japanese gardens and more. Gourmet dinners are held here, cooked with organic vegetables from the kitchen garden, and 3 gîtes open.
4-star Hôtel l'Aigle Noir
Opposite the Château de Fontainebleau, this ancient private mansion - residence of the noblemen and women of the royal court for many centuries - unites luxury and sophistication. Each room is decorated differently, in a distinctly Empirical style.
5-star Hôtellerie du Bas Bréau
Princess Grace of Monaco, Julien Green and Robert Louis Stevenson – author of Treasure Island - have all stayed here. This former hunting lodge on the edge of the forest of
Fontainebleau is a haven of peace with 1 hectare of grounds and a swimming pool. In addition, it offers high-quality French home cooking.
Between 1830 and 1875, this modest hamlet of woodcutters witnessed the birth of the movement of French landscape painters, where artists became grand masters who went on to inspire young artists by the name of Monet or Renoir. Many of them stayed at the Ganne guest house, which retains some souvenirs from this era on its walls.
