  • The royal domain of Fontainebleau forest is very nice to visit, whatever the season. She is very well kept, nice for walkers who want to to friendliness, quite dense and busy during the hot days.

  • Sand in a forest with magical rocks is unusual in our campaigns. Open to the public this wooded area is beautiful and very well maintained. Attendance is important either in individual or family.

  • Capita nearby we take our children as soon as possible! Our 5 year old son is accustomed from childhood to climb on the rocks and we ask every weekend to go to the forest of "water fountain"... the cadet went before birth because the trails and some climbing site are accessible without concern for a pregnant woman! Sometimes we have some surprises at the bend of a road or a cave (frescoes)... We organized the birthday dinner of our elder on the site of the Gorges of Franchard and everyone loved it! We appreciate this nature preserved and left 'clean' by visitors, which is particularly rare nowadays!
