Charming house in a very good location with very nice owners

  • 5 of 5

This was a great property for a three day stay in Fontainebleau for a couple, their three adult sons and spouses, and two small grandchildren (an infant and a three year old.) We came a few days early, before a family wedding and very much enjoyed our time in the town.

The rooms were clean and comfortable, the kitchen had everything we needed, and the living room was very good for gathering. The location was also very convenient - just a short walk from the chateau, with a very good restaurant, a bakery, and a convenience store just around the corner. Parking was easy to find on the street, within a two minute walk, and cost 10 Euros for a weekly permit, issued from a vending machine.

The rooms are on three floors, but that was not a problem for any of us.

The owners are very nice and were most accommodating.

Owner's Response: It gave us great pleasure to receive the stay of your family in three generations. We're very glad that you enjoyed your time in Fontainebleau and that the house met your needs. Thank you for your time to chat for a while - it was fun! We are truly grateful for your relaxed and good-humored reaction to the disruption caused by the leaks from the roof during the heavy storm that occurred while you were in house..repairs are now underway so there should not be any need for buckets for the next visit! We would be delighted to see you return.

Fantastic Location with Outstanding Hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at this centrally located townhome. Three levels of living was perfect for us--Ground Floor has a nice living room with a flat screen TV , the dining room is charming and the kitchen is stocked with everything you need to enjoy yourself and cook a light meal. Our hosts left some wonderful essentials that made it easy to enjoy the stay! The bedrooms are light and airy with comfortable mattresses and nice linens. The bathrooms are very modern with plenty of room and hot water! This is a very charming townhome with hardwood floors, architectural features, windows that open onto the street and an easy decor. If you are looking for a "homebase" in Fountainbleau, this should be your choice. Easy to walk to lovely restaurants and cafes. chateaus, churches, local shopping and markets. We would choose this property again! Thank you!

Beautiful, spacious and perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

The house feels much larger than the photos give credit for! Melda and Alan were very friendly and offered lots of flexibility when it came to booking our stay. They even left us some beer, wine and a few other things!

We were a group of 7 and there was plenty enough space for all of us to stay for a week in total comfort. The house is well equipped, including dishwasher, washing machine, full kitchen etc as well as WIFI, which isn't listed on the page. The house is located just off the main street and is therefore a little quieter, with plenty of parking options within walking distance. The house does not have a garden but to be honest, it doesn't need one as there is a huge park just minutes walk away if you fancy spending some time in the sun!

We'd very much recommend considering this lovely house if you plan on staying in Fontainebleau for any length of time. It's location and amenities make it ideal for climbers like us, or a family holiday.

Beautiful house, flexible booking, lots of close by services such as parking, bakeries, restaurants etc.

We'd be keen to come again next year!

Owner's Response: It was a real pleasure to host Cameron and his friends. They were a friendly, fun and totally cool group. We're delighted that they found the house and location to their liking. We got the house back in great order. We would highly recommend Cameron and companions to any prospective host and we would be thrilled to have the opportunity to host them another time.

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.
