This campground, near the village of Milly-la-Forêt, is the most visited in the region. Most people coming to climb in the nearby forest fan out from here. The ambiance is mostly congenial, except on very busy occasions such as holidays when it tends to get very crowded. Sanitary facilities are well provided and well maintained.
On hot summer days the open air swimming pool is a very welcome refreshment after a day of climbing on the boulders in the area.
Some nights a pizza van visits the campground. In the morning a bakery van also makes the tour of the campground.
Instead of staying in Fontainebleau we opted to stay in nearby Melun, 17km and 20 minutes from Fontainebleau. It was a good base for seeing the sights south of Paris, in the eastern part of Ile-de-France. From there we also visited Vaux le Vicomte (5-10 minutes away), Blandy (10-15 minutes) and Moiret-sur-Loing (35 minutes).
Ibis is a European chain of hotels that provides basic lodging at reasonable prices, there was also a location in Fontainebleau but the Ibis Melun was less expensive and had free parking. It was located right off the A5 from Paris, the hotel has an onsite restaurant, there is a McDonald's and a grocery store nearby or the center of Melun is less than a 10 minute drive.
Ibis hotels are fairly consistent in decor, comfort and amentities, if you like one, you will probably like them all. I pick them because they are always clean, reasonably comfortable, the showers always have hot water and they have free wifi. I don't really need much more than that for a 1 night stay.
This hotel is 5 minutes away from Fontainebleau and 2 minutes from the train station. It is a small hotel with nice rooms overlooking the Seine River and a private garden.
Very warm welcome, excellent food and wine! We had a wonderfull stay. Ideal for bike riding or hiking in the forest from the hotel.
It is a small calm and quiet hotel (14 rooms) with a fine dining restaurant just outside Fontainebleau. The setings are incredible: a two story high old building in a parc overlooking the Seine river.
Rooms are confortable, a bit small, good value for money though. Restaurant is great, not only very nicely decorated but the food and the view are both exquisite.
Service in very friendly, it is like being home (except it is better).
I warmy recommend the hotel, do not hesitate one second to book there
It is a unique combination of superb riverside, forest environment and yet rather sophisticated food and lodging
We have been staying in this lovely hotel for 3 days and it has been a great experience. The location overlooking the river is fantastic and if the weather allows it breakfast on the terrace is wonderful.
Food and wines are top level, no discussions one of the best meals we had in France.
Staff is helpful and kind, the owner speeks excellent english, the staff some.
Rooms on the first foor are charming with a balcony over looking the river and a breathtaking view.
The location is outstanding, surroundings great. Fontainebleau Palace and Vaux-le-Vicomte are just few miles away.
