A Fontainebleau Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

Spent a wonderful month of July here, living in the heart of Fontainebleau with my wife and two boys (18 and 19). House is well equipped, comfortable, spacious and centrally located with one of Fontainebleau's best bakeries just across the road. Melda and Alan are very thoughtful, considerate, friendly and flexible landlords. They used to live here themselves, so anticipate and accommodate any issues that may arise, such as strong fans if temperatures rise, double glazing for the upper bedrooms, and cable TV channels available if needed. Coming from the US, we appreciated that everything was provided - towels, sheets, bin liners, dishwasher tabs - not-to-mention the wine/beer and other goodies. An entry to the Chateau park is at the end of the street, and parking a few minutes from the house was never a problem. The house has an Old World charm, yet the two bathrooms are up-to-date with good, strong showers. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, and hope to return at some point.

Authentic and wondeerful French experience

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place in which to commence our French vacation! We were five adults and two children and the house and it's owners could not have been more accommodating. After the long haul from Perth via Singapore all we wanted was a bed and to get settled. Alan drove through Paris peak hour traffic to meet us on Monday morning. He left us wine, beer, coffee and a kitchen full of the basics. The house is ideally placed in Fontainebleau, eclectic and very comfortable. We felt most welcome and relaxed into the festivities of the Gypsy Jazz Festival. We could fall out of bed and have fresh baguettes and croissants in five minutes. We didn't want to leave, but Paris called. Everyone agrees that our time in this lovely, old townhouse was the best part of our three weeks in France. Thank you Alan and Melda for making it so.

Owner's Response: It was a tremendous pleasure to have your musical family coming from afar stay at the house and to know that you had such an enjoyable time in France. It was a pity that the Django Reinhardt jazz festival had to be moved from Samois on the Seine to the close-by Fountainebleau park due to flooding but trust that it was as much fun as ever. Thanks so much Genelle and family for your visit, we truly look forward to seeing you again.

Perfect place to stay in Fontainebleau

  • 5 of 5

We returned to Fontainbleau with our family to visit after living there for a year as a couple in 2006. I cannot think of a better place to stay in Fontainebleau.

This beautiful and authentic townhouse is very well equipped, extremely comfortable and perfectly situated for a holiday in Fontainebleau.

Travelling with a young family always means that you need to be able to operate well where you are staying to make the most of your holiday. The salon, cuisine and salle à manger on the ground floor were very convenient. With bedrooms upstairs, it was easy to enjoy the living areas once children were asleep. The kitchen was very well equipped and clothes washing machine and other appliances all in good order - making looking after family needs very easy.

We loved being so central and close to the shops, chateau and gardens, and of course, the carousel. We found it easy to park down the street from the house in car park but only needed the car when we were going out to the forest and villages. We could do everything we needed to in town by walking. The bedrooms were very comfortable and recently renovated bathrooms a sanctuary. The heating was also great on the couple of colder days we had while we were there.

Melda was very helpful in arranging the booking and both Melda and Alan on our arrival. We really appreciated their flexibility when we were much later arriving in Fontainebleau than we had expected. It was also comforting to have them easy to contact during our stay. Thank you Melda and Alan for a wonderful week that we hope to repeat again in the future.

Fantastic house, central location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in this house, which is centrally located and close to a supermarket, bakery and various chocolate shops. The rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated. The kitchen had everything we needed and we cooked several times. The house was clean and we were welcomed by a variety of goodies, which was appreciated. We would definitely return. Thanks Melda

Easy living

  • 5 of 5

We were supposed to be 6 people staying at the townhouse for seven days. Circumstances wanted it to be only 4 people. Anyway, we had a great stay with more than enough room. We guess the house has room for 8-10 people.

The standard was to all our likings. Not really missing anything. The kitchen was well equiped. The beds were nice and the bathrooms was functional.

All shoping, restaurants and bakeries are just around the corner. Parking was close, not to expensive and not difficult to find.

Summa summarum we really would like to come back.

Owner's Response: We are very pleased to hear that you had a good stay and that the house and the location were suitable for you. It was unfortunate that your group was reduced in numbers at the last minute so next time we hope that more will come.
