What you'll do

Discover the fairytale town of Fontainbleau and its must-see sights, like the opulently decorated Château de Fontainebleau and the surrounding dense forest – but with your local host’s insider knowledge, you’ll also experience for yourself why Parisians adore a pilgrimage here. Peruse the town’s chic perfume shops, sample mouth-watering gingerbread macarons at Dardonville boulangerie, or head to Fromagerie Barthelemy for its signature Le Fontainebleau cheese - they’ve been making it for over a century. But don’t be fooled by the charming, village-like vibe – this small town boasts a surprisingly cosmopolitan nightlife scene, and your host knows the perfect stylish bar for a glass of vin rouge before heading back to Paris.

Where you’ll go

With your local host to lead the way, hop on a 40-minute train trip south of Paris to the fairytale town of Fontainebleau. You’ll follow in the footsteps of Paris’ historical elite, for whom this town was a playground, as you walk the grounds of Château de Fontainebleau – a 1500-room palace housing the immaculately preserved Turkish boudoir of Marie Antoinette and Napoleon’s lavish theater. Just west of the palace grounds, wander through the endemic trees of the Forest of Fontainebleau, then amble north down charming streets to the central open-air market at Place de la République, where you’ll sample regional gourmet specialties like poppy-infused liqueurs, before exploring the town’s specialized fromageries, perfume boutiques and cafes.
