Top 10 Airbnb Vacation Rentals In Fontainebleau, France - Updated 2023

airbnb Fontainebleau, France

Surrounded by a magnificent forest, Fontainebleau is a town 64.3 kilometers (40 miles) southeast of Paris, that can easily get overlooked because of its famous neighbor. Fontainebleau is known for the opulent Chateau de Fontainebleau, also referred to by the locals as the “castle”. If you’ve explored the Louvre, Notre Dame, even made a trip to Versailles and still haven’t gotten your fill of French architecture, then a trip to the castle in Fontainebleau is in order. Originally a medieval royal hunting lodge, the Chateau de Fontainebleau is a true showpiece of French royal and aristocratic history. One of the largest residences built by the kings of France, it is a delightful alternative to crowded Versailles.

Nature lovers and adventurers should not miss a visit to the lovely Forest of Fontainebleau, which offers grand walks, hiking, cycling, rock climbing, and so much more. The Forest of Fontainebleau is also home to INSEAD. Spread out over 8 hectares (19.7 acres), INSEAD is one of the world’s largest and top-rated graduate business schools. INSEAD’s modern architecture blends elegantly into the green and leafy terrain of the Forest of Fontainebleau, making it an area worth investigating.

The people of Fontainebleau invite you to experience the best this city has to offer, and the chance to provide comfort and convenience with these top Airbnb vacation rentals:
